Dating Guide (Disc 1)

 

Once during the game (when you are in the gold saucer) you will be asked on a date with someone, your choices in the game will determine who.

Here is a guide.

Note:
This one can only be done in Disc 1. You need to do some other quests if you are to date Yuffie.

Dating at Gold Saucer
Cloud gets to go on a 'dating' mini-event with the one that loves him. I have managed to get either Tifa or Aeris most of the times but it is also possible to get Yuffie. The 'date' varies as it depends on the options that you have choose so far in the course of the game.

Dating Aeris Gainsborough
Aeris is the original date, as she is the one who promises Cloud a date if Cloud saves her from the hands of the Turks at the sector 5 slums. To date her is relatively simple as you just need to treat her good throughout the game. Throughout the game, talk to her first before talking to anyone else in the party. Below are some highlights of the events:

 

Event and Period

What to do?

When Cloud first meet her at the Slums after being separated from the members of AVALANCHE (After destroying Mako Reactor #1)

Pick the bottom option twice and buy a flower from her.

When Cloud is back at the 7th Heaven and meet up with Tifa

Instead of giving Tifa the flower, give it to Marlene

When Cloud meets up with Aeris at the Church...

Pick that you remember her selling the flowers to you. Remember her as the flower girl.

When Aeris is unguarded at Church...

Drop the barrels correctly, helping Aeris not fight a single battle. (!)

When Aeris has ask whether Tifa is your girlfriend.

Pick the alternative options (deny Tifa as your girlfriend)

When Don Corneo is selecting for a girl...

Volunteer Tifa or Cloud as the choice.

When Marlene says that Aeris likes you...

Pick "hope so..."

While held imprisoned at the Shinra HQ

Talk to Aeris about the Ancients...

When Aeris prompts you about the Airship...

Tell her that you will take her to there someday...

At Gold Saucer when Barret is in a bad mood...

Investigate ALL areas of Gold Saucer before heading for Wonder Square.

Have Aeris in your party while at Gongaga, head for the village and talk to Zack's parents...

Aeris will leave the room. Talk to her and indicate that you are a bit jealous...

Dating Tifa Lockhart...
Dating Tifa is relatively simple as I managed to date her 50% of the time. First of all, dating her is quite similar in dating Aeris. First of all, buy the flower from Aeris and give it to her. Talk to her and pick "...sorry" when Cloud leaves the bar in a rush. The next morning, pick that you enjoy the sleep because she is with you. Drop some wrong barrels for Aeris. When Aeris asks where Tifa is your girlfriend, pick yes. When Don Corneo is selecting the girls, avoid Tifa being picked.. When Marlene told Cloud that she thinks that Aeris likes him, pick 'not sure'. While held captive at the Shinra HQ, talk to Tifa first before conversing with Aeris. During Kalm's flashback, admit that Cloud has gone to her room, examine her drawers and read her letter. While on the ship to Costa del Sol, talk to Tifa that you agree with her. At the Gold Saucer (while Barrett is in a bad mood) talk to Tifa and ask her to go with you. At Gongaga, have Tifa in your party, talk to Tifa before leaving...

Dating Yuffie Kisaragi...

Dating Yuffie is pretty fun but you need to be bad against other two ladies in the game (Aeris and Tifa). First of all, you need to recruit her ASAP and defeat her. Click here to know more information on recruiting Yuffie. Do not have Cloud deal the final blow. Have someone else to do so. Before recruiting Yuffie, make sure that you are bad against Aeris and Tifa. Buy the flower from Aeris and give it to Marlene instead of Tifa and drop all the wrong barrels for Aeris. Admit that Tifa is your girlfriend in front of Aeris. When heading to the Don Corneo's mansion, choose to have Aeris as the choice. When Tifa is out, say that "we got to rescue Aeris!". Down in the sewers, talk to Aeris first before Tifa. Next, when you head for Shinra HQ, choose to barge in front instead of sneaking into the building. When asking the man at 62nd floor, pick "Where is Aeris" followed by ".....". Once Aeris is rescued and released, pick Tifa to go with her. When held captive, talk to Tifa and pick "it would be difficult". Outside Midgar, pick that outside Midgar is dangerous do they still want to go... Form a party comprises of Red XIII and Barrett. During Kalm flashback, admit you have gone to Tifa's house, examine her drawers and read her letter.

After you have recruited Yuffie, treat her nicely and equip Cover Materia to Cloud protecting her. Always talk to her first before talking to anyone else. Store a Tranquilizer. Listen obediently to her instructions...

Recruit Yuffie before heading for the Mythril Mine. PHS and have Tifa and Aeris. Volunteer to help. Once you're at the Fort Condor, choose not to help. Go down to the save point and PHS put Yuffie along with Red XIII. Volunteer to help. Use the bed when asked by Yuffie. At Junon, have a part of Aeris and Tifa when fighting the Bottomswell and save Priscilla. On the ship heading towards the Costa del Sol, give her the tranquilizer whereas giving Tifa and Aeris negative responses. When asked to form a party to fight against Sephiroth onboard the ship, form the party comprises of Red XIII and Yuffie. At Costa del Sol, go down to the beach and choose to pick "the girl in green bikini" instead "Is that Hojo?". After the chat with Hojo is over, proceed to Inn where you will find Aeris lying on the bed. Talk to her and says "Nothing much". Proceed to Johnny's house, right side of the bar and talk to Tifa. "I'm not worried". While at Mount Corel, form a party of Aeris and Tifa. Choose to take the treasure from the bird nest. At Gold Saucer, ask Yuffie to go with you. Proceed to Gongaga and make a party comprises of Yuffie and Cait Sith. When taking to Reno, pick "Sector 7?". Exit into the World Map and PHS forming a party of Aeris and Tifa. Head to Zack's house, both of them will leave the house. Ignore them and exit the house.

At Cosmo Canyon, choose to have Yuffie and another member (other than Aeris and Tifa) to visit Bugenhagen laboratory. Talk to her at the Materia Shop. Proceed on with the story with Yuffie and Barrett till Rocket Town. Once you got Cid in your party and acquired Tiny Bronco. Head west from there to Wutai with Yuffie and Cid. Once Yuffie takes away your Materia, found a party of Barrett and Cid/Red XIII/Cait. Complete Yuffie's side quest. Follow her orders (like the left levers). Finish Wutai quest Part 1 and Part 2.
