Elizabeth

Elizabeth is an interesting romance option in Persona 3 Reload because she doesn’t require you to level up her Social Link to date her. You can romance Elizabeth after completing a certain amount of Elizabeth’s requests. You’ll then gain the option to go on a date with her.

While this isn’t a romance like the other characters, you’re still technically going on a romantic date with her. Just make sure to keep up with those requests, and soon enough you’ll get the option to take her out.
