Girlfriends are a small feature in Sleeping Dogs. There are five potential girlfriends for Wei Shen to date. Going out with girlfriends will grant bonuses to the player, including map locations for collectibles and extra races.
In Sleeping Dogs, dating comes in the form of missions, some girlfriends appear after the date, but after the missions are complete, all of their bonuses are unlocked and they cannot be dated again. Wei explains this to Peggy Li in Bride to Be, saying that having a girlfriend wouldn't be a good idea with his current lifestyle.
- Amanda Cartwright (Health Shrines will appear on the minimap)
- Tiffany Kim (Jade Zodiac Statues will appear on the minimap)
- Not Ping (Security Cameras will appear on the minimap)
- Ilyana (Lockboxes will appear on the minimap)
- Sandra (Unlocks races in Victoria's Peak)
Should the player date Not Ping, whose phone number is only available after dating Tiffany Kim, two optional side missions will be unlocked. The first side mission is started in front of your safehouse in North Point by doing a favor for Calvin.
Upon completion of the side story Tiffany will break up with Wei. Not Ping will call Wei soon after and "break up" with Wei as well.
It is not possible to break up with Amanda, Sandra or Ilyana.
- After finishing your date and the screen pans out as Wei is "getting lucky," there is sexual innuendo on billboards or signs that depict what the two are doing.
- After breaking up with Tiffany she is no longer an essential character and can be killed.
