Have you wanted a girlfriend who was made as if just for you? Shared interests, adoration, and cute clothes? Have conversations, give gifts, and go on adventures with a virtual girl all your own.
So this is a dating sim style app. You have a “blank slate” personality for your girlfriend, which basically is an over all cheerful and supportive personality. Her features and clothing are a ‘standard’ setting as well. This all starts out when you accidentally run into a mysterious girl who decides that for some reason right at that moment you are ‘the one’ who might just be the ‘right one’ for this type of application. Surprise! You now have a girlfriend!
The basis of this is pretty standard. You can talk to your girlfriend using ‘points’ throughout the day to learn more of her personality, blank slate and the eventual one you can choose, and to trigger events that can be saved in your album. You can buy her clothes, facial features, accessories, using free points earned through playing or of course use real money that converts into game money. There is an event each month that is themed where you can win backgrounds, clothes, and accessories for your girlfriend. Dialogue is different in these events as well and they use a different set of points. Again you can get more points through waiting in real time or buying them in real life. There is also an option to join a single ‘group’ where you can interact directly with other players on a message board. These can be private, invite acceptance, or open. Lastly there is also a way to interact with other players girlfriends by rating their outfits, giving advice, and your girlfriend talking to them. Oh yes, and you have to make sure your lady sleeps to regain points, you can buy outfits and pillows for this as well.

One note on the outfits, there are some that can only be received if purchased with the coins you get from real money. There are also some ‘special’ outfits which make your girlfriend move in real time when talking to her instead of just having different facial expressions. Some of these are of course very sexual in nature, while others are more sweet.
What are all these points for? Well there are a few things. You can use them to ‘unlock’ different personality traits of your girlfriend. Oh yes, I forgot to mention, you can also have her study which increases or decreases desired personality traits to choose a personality model. You can also have her go to work to earn you money to buy her more things. These personalities need different things, such as a Sporty personality might need high points in cheerfulness and playfulness, but low points in sexy and cool. Some of the different personality models are Sporty, Tsundere and Yandere. Different personalities need a certain character level. That’s right! You also level up in this game. Higher levels unlock different physical features, clothing, and personalities of your girlfriend.
Wait, there’s more! After you reach a certain level, you can be rewarded with a second girlfriend! This is because you are responsible enough to handle two women at once now. This second girlfriend is the same game play as the original, buying clothing, talking, etc. However, be careful spending too much time with one girlfriend, because you could make the other jealous or hurt their feelings. I’m not sure how many girlfriends you can have, I only made it as far as the two.

Overall thoughts: I’m not sure exactly if I like this game or not. It is really easy to get into and spend time on, generating enough points without spending real money is easy, dressing up and having monthly events is a good way to keep people interested, and they seem to keep a steady flow of new accessories, backgrounds, etc that you can get. However, on the flip side, I’m not sure how I feel about having a girlfriend who I build from scratch to meet my personality wants. She’s pretty much just there to please me and make me happy. I’m a little sad too that the two girlfriends couldn’t be friends and work together instead of not liking each other, however I wonder if this is due to different personality types or not? I suppose the point of a dating sim is
to have a fantasy character who falls in love with you and does what they can to make you happy. It just rubbed me a little the wrong way that I could so easily change her personality if I decide I don’t like it. I can see this game sticking around for a long time, especially if they keep it fresh and updating it regularly. I know a call for a male version is wanted (they have an animal-man based one, however it is no where near the level of this app in variety or motion).
You can find this app on the Google Play store, and I believe it is on Apple as well. These photos were saved with the photo save option in My Dream Girlfriend App.
