How to romance Judy Alvarez in Cyberpunk 2077

In order to romance Judy in Cyberpunk 2077, you need to pass through a series of Main Jobs allowing you to access the Side Missions involving her. If you play your cards right, she will develop mutual interest in no time.  

The main missions may not impact your romance with Judy in Cyberpunk 2077, but they are necessary to play through. They will allow you to familiarize yourself with her character and grant you access to the side missions as well.

After your interaction in The Information, you will find her in Lizzie’s bar during the Automatic Love main quest. Though the encounter has no contribution towards romancing Judy, being open and transparent with her will allow you to access more dialogues when speaking to her later on. If you are simply a completionist or just want to know more about Judy, it will be worth looking into.

The Space In Between, Disasterpiece, and Double Life main missions allow more freedom of expression so you can converse with her as you please since they will not affect your relationship with her.

You can cause some tension during the Double Life quest but nothing that will impact your romance with Judy in Cyberpunk 2077.

Judy dialogue choices

After you are done with the main missions, the side jobs are where your relationship with Judy is most impacted. There are a few that you can glaze over but with some, you need to be careful with your words.

To access side quests required to romance Judy in Cyberpunk 2077, you must complete the Double Life main mission. Sticking by the mentioned dialogues and actions will make sure you end up with Judy Alvarez.

Both Sides, Now

The choices within this quest don’t matter for your future romance. Just pick up the call when Judy calls you after a 24-hour wait-time from the main job “Double Life.”

Just make sure you are nice to Judy and don’t do anything to offend her.


Once you finish the Both Sides, Now mission, you will get a text from Judy titled “EV’s Send Off” after 12 hours. Reply, and wait another 6 hours in-game for Judy to call you.  

When you speak to Judy at her apartment, make sure that you agree to help her. If you accidentally refuse, all of Judy Alvarez’s future side jobs will come to an end and your chances of romancing Judy in Cyberpunk 2077 will be dead.

From there, you can take the conversation as you please as it will not impact your romantic relationship.

Remember that you can fast-forward the time if waiting around dampens your experience.

Talkin’ Bout a Revolution

Similar to Ex-factor, you will get a message after 6 hours followed by a call after another 6.

Go ahead and Spar with Tom and choose the dialogue “You can count on me.”

You must give it your all as losing the fight will also make you lose your chances with her by locking yourself out of all future side quests.

As you choose to agree, Judy will ask to pay you, to which you will very humbly decline by saying,

  • “Out of the question.”
  • “Forget about it. It’s passed.”
  • “[Lean] Sure, thanks.”

By following the above instructions, you will get to stay a night in Judy Alvarez’s Apartment. You will get breakfast in the morning as well. Jackpot!

If you don’t follow her back to her house, it will not impact your endeavors to romance Judy in Cyberpunk 2077 but you will have to set yourself a meal in the morning.


After Talkin’ ‘Bout A Revolution, you will get a text from Judy in about 6 hours, and a call in the following 6. It is essential that you make the right decisions here to access the last part of her storyline to finally romance Judy in Cyberpunk 2077.

Head to the penthouse and select the following dialogues in the presence of the gang bosses.

  • “This wasn’t the plan.”
  • “Who are the other two?”
  • “Do my best. Jack ‘em out.”
  • “Hold on, think you’ve gone too far.”
  • “[Draw Weapon] Let’s cut to the quick.”
  • Kill all of the gang bosses.
  • “What?”
  • “You tried to cheat us all.”
  • Kill Maiko

Do NOT accept Maiko’s plan or payment, you will lose any chance to be with Judy if you do. Make sure the gang bosses attack you.

If you kill Maiko, you get a kiss on the lips. If you let Maiko go, you get a kiss on the cheek. However, for Judy Alvarez’s Romance to proceed properly, you need to kill Maiko.

Pyramid Song

A week after Maiko’s incident, Judy will call you and ask you to join her in the evening at Laguna Bend Lake in the Badlands.

She will ask you to go diving with her to which you need to reply with, “Hell yeah, I’m in.” You can still call her back and tell her you changed your mind and continue from there if you initially refused.

Picking up any optional items during the quest is not important for romancing Judy in Cyberpunk 2077.

When you come back from the dive, agree to spend the night at the cottage on the lakeside. Once you manage to turn the lights back on, seek her out in the nearby bathroom and ask her if everything is alright.

  • Tell Judy
  • “We’re still Synced”
  • “[Touch] it is ours”

This will lead to a kiss and then to Judy’s sex scene during Cyberpunk 2077. 

Wake up the next morning and go talk to Judy by the pier and tell her that this was “The beginning of something amazing”.

Doing so will make your attempts to romance Judy in Cyberpunk 2077 a success and you will now be in a relationship with her. This will also unlock Judy’s apartment for you so you can drop by anytime.

If you tell her it was a distraction instead, your romance with Judy in Cyberpunk 2077 will come to an end with no future possibilities of redemption.
