How to romance in Baldur’s Gate 3

To romance your companions in Baldur’s Gate 3, you’ll need to develop a positive relationship with the character you want to be your lover.

To do this, you’ll want to look out for certain dialogue options or choices that will reflect kindly on the companion’s morals, or make them look good.

It’ll be a lot of learning as you go, but we recommend choosing your companion before fully beginning the game, so you can prepare for scenarios and focus on falling in love. Once in the game, head to the character sheet and look at the companions’ stats. In there, it’ll tell you all about their approval of you so you can adjust as you play.

In order to raise approval, you’ll have to follow the companions’ personal quests. Look out for ‘!’ markers, given that they indicate that your companion has something to say to you. Also, agreeing with their plans can help develop a relationship as well as camping often.
