Can you Romance Halsin if you already have a Lover?

Yes, you can pursue a romantic relationship with Halsin in Baldur’s Gate 3 even though you are romancing other NPC characters. These companions may include Shadowheart, Astarion, or Karlach. But as Halsin states during one of the talks, he is very happy to share. But you cannot romance Halsin before completing Act 3 and beating General Kethric Thorm. You can romance Halsin once you reach the Wyrm’s Crossing and rest for a few moments.

Upon resting at your camp, it will trigger various cutscenes. Keep on resting at the camp until you are told that someone wants to speak to you. As you reach over there, you will find Halsin waiting for you. If you are romancing another companion, here are the following dialogue responses you will receive:

  • “What are you saying exactly?”
  • “I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t interested – but I’m already in a relationship.”
  • “You just want to share? What do you mean?”
  • “I will speak with (current companion)”

Rather than breaking up with your companion in BG3, you can talk to the companion if you are romancing them currently. So, here are all the safe dialogue options to select while talking with your companion:

  • “I wanted to talk to you about us, and exclusivity in our relationship.”
  • “He’s open-minded and willing to share… as long as you are.”
