Getting a Boyfriend: The SpecificsEditOne can get a boyfriend in 3 ways: on the street, at a party and via clique requests (can be sent from the Dating
When one accesses the Dating Diary, it is possible to find all sorts of guys one can possibly think of. If you date 5 boyfriends in one category, you will get an outfit. If you are dating to collect outfits only and not the clothes items, the minimum time to date a man is 4 hours for him to count in the Dating Diary. Otherwise, the man will not be counted in your quest for the new outfit.
One outfit equals dating five boyfriends.
To get a specific boyfriend, you will often need to send out requests to your friends/clique members. For five boyfriends, from lowest to highest in terms of requests, one player will need to send 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10 invites subsequently. This totals 30 requests per 1 outfit.
Tip: If you get a boyfriend via the Dating Diary, but wish to choose another one, you will not lose the chance to date him later. Once he has a red "flirt" sign, it stays there until you date him for at least 4 hours. But you can change men immediately and you will not have to send requests for him again. You can flirt, hook up, break up & re-hook up again with him without any fear of having to save up requests for him all over again. You can flirt with as many men as you like until you find the one you like most. So do not be afraid to change boyfriends immediately.
When you get a boyfriend, he will give you energy and confidence items up to twice a day (if you login in the morning and evening, for example).
The Boyfriend Gifts is a different story. These are anything but confidence and energy boosters. They can be clothes items, leggins, and various accessories.
They appear as blue in your closet. Another way to distinguish between another item & a boyfriend gift is to hover over an item. All boyfriend clothes gifts have "Boyfriend Gifts" written at the top of the frame besides the gift title and "Boyfriend" category.
To get them, you have to kiss you boyfriend. One kiss equals around 1 point in the gift progress bar. After 5 kisses, you will get a new boyfriend gift.
Boyfriend gifts are level-locked as well. The majority of all should be unlocked by level 100-110. The Dating Diary keeps track of all boyfriends and the level you must have to date a particular one. Most Boyfriend gifts are unique, however, a couple are clones of already existing clothes that can be bought from other places.
Dating a boyfriend does not impact the Gift Progress. Only the kisses do. In general, you can kiss your boyfriend every 8 hours. It used to be 4 hours, and still is for some rare boyfriends, but the timing has changed.

- Introducing Him to You clique Friends (around +2 happiness for 1 successul introduction. Use especially for Social boyfriends. Introduce him to as many of your friends as possible, and his happiness will stay full)
- Your Boyfriend Asking to be Introduced to a Particular Friend (Is worth +20 happiness)
Below you will find the list of levels your relationship can progress through, while you date a particular boy. Usually, the longer you date a man, the higher the rewards he can give you, be it more xp or cash. Furthermore, a boyfriend's happiness drains less quickly when you have reached the highest status possible.

Losing A BoyfriendEdit
If he does leave, it is only possible to get him back with Facebook Credits/Diamonds.
Breaking Up With a BoyfriendEditSometimes, you need to break up with a boyfriend. This is done by going to the Boyfriend icon & clicking on the "break up" button. Usually, you are supposed to take a reputation hit if you do so, but experience shows that you can break up as many times as you wish, while in the Cruise>Single Mingle, provided you break up as soon as you see that you do not like that boyfriend. Without leaving the district, you can simply click "break up" or flirt with another man & accept their dating offer straight away.
If you flirt with another man & accept their offer, you break up with your existing boyfriend automatically. You do not even need to waste time breaking up first, but just flirt with another man you like.
Dating Boyfriends Within 1 CategoryEditA great way to save time & not to send out an enormours amount of invites is to wait for a boyfriend to introduce you to a better version of him. This will happen once you receive the final gift out of his 5. Next time you load the game a pop-up window like shown to the right will appear. So, you start with the first boyfriend who only requires 2 invites & progress to the final one with 10 invites easily.
The only issue with this approach is that you can still get clone boyfriends & you will only be introduced if you have received 5 gifts. If you wish to avoid this, sending out invites still for specific men & checking the Boyfriend Dating List is recommended.
