  • Tell her farewell and she leaves.
  • Tell her stay with you.

No matter what you choose, Triss will board the boat. Here is the list of conditions that you must meet if you still want things to lead to a Carnal Knowledge Encounter.

  • Kiss her at the ball during Secondary Quest: A Matter of Life and Death.
  • You agreed to help her with the mages during Secondary Quest: Now or Never.
  • Tell her you love her and continue to be pleasant with her.

How to Romance Yennefer of Vengerberg in The Witcher 3

Geralt will have a chance to get to know Yennefer better at the end of the Main Quest: The King is Dead – Long Live the King in The Witcher 3. At a certain point in the quest you’ll need to choose from two dialogue options, determining exactly how things will turn out between the two of you.

  • Tell her ‘We’re gonna choke and die.’
  • Tell her ‘Damn, I wanna kiss you, Yen.’

Later on in the story, Geralt will have another chance to be intimate with Yennefer. The opportunity comes during the Main Quest: No Place Like Home. When the entire group is downstairs at the table, Yennefer will stand up and excuse herself.

If you’re romantically involved, she’ll request to speak to you in private, and after you’re done, you’ll return back downstairs to find your fellow witchers drunk. If you aren’t romantically involved, you won’t get this chance, and instead, everyone around you will get drunk and talk about the past.

How to Romance Jutta An Dimun in The Witcher 3

Geralt can visit Jutta An Dimun after completing the Side Quest: Iron Maiden in The Witcher 3. Jutta will invite you back to her house. She’ll ask you to come around at about dusk. If you choose to accept the offer, her house is located beside the place where you fought Gundar.

If you aren’t interested in spending some one-on-one time with Jutta, simply agree to her request to help out with “Freya’s cruel trick”.

Yennefer and Geralt meet up in Vizima, although it's strictly business during this visit.

How to Romance Madame Sasha in The Witcher 3

At the end of the Side Quest: Gwent: High Stakes in The Witcher 3, Geralt will be offered dinner at the Kingfisher Inn by Madame Sasha. She’s looking to score half the winnings from the contest, but if you’re willing to part with your hard earned Gwent Cards, Geralt can score another night out on the town. After dinner is finished, the conversation quickly shifts to talk of heading upstairs for the night.

  • Agree if you're looking for a Carnal Knowledge Encounter with the Madame.
  • Disagree and you’ll spend the night with your cards.

How to Romance Strumpet of Crippled Kate’s in The Witcher 3

If one of the previous Carnal Knowledge Encounters wasn't for you, you can always head over to Crippled Kate’s in Novigrad. Pay the Madame 20 Crowns, or don't. It's up to you to choose how you wish to proceed.

How to Romance Harlots of the Passiflora in The Witcher 3

If for some reason Crippled Kate's isn't your kind of place, head up to Passiflora in Novigrad. Speak with the Madame here, paying 40 Crowns, rather than the 20 you were charged at the previous establishment.

Should You Choose Triss or Yennefer in The Witcher 3?

The big choice in terms of romance in The Witcher 3 is whether or not to choose Yennefer or Triss. This is a debate that has raged on the internet for a fair while now, and who you should choose isn't as simple as it may seem.

Ultimately,it comes down to who you like the most, though if you're looking to make the choice that makes more sense for Geralt within the confines of the story then there are a few things to consider. Firstly, Yen and Geralt are essentially made for each other in the lore. Their interactions are much more complex and romantic, and there are way more romantic encounters in the game for Yen. If you played the previous games you'll likely have more of an affinity for Yen, though again if you'd rather hang with Triss then go for it.
