How to Romance Garrus Vakarian in Mass Effect Legendary Edition

Garrus first appears in Mass Effect 1, but he doesn't become a romanceable option for Shepard until Mass Effect 2, making that the perfect place to start. After recruiting Garrus, you'll have to wait until his loyalty mission to begin the path towards love. Once you complete that mission, titled Eye for an Eye, talk to Garrus. In the conversation, pick the "We could ease stress together" and "Not what I meant" options to trigger the beginning of the romance. In a conversation later, Shepard will be able to reaffirm their relationship, which is especially important before the Suicide Mission.

If you want to keep your relationship with Garrus into Mass Effect 3, you have to make sure he survives the Suicide Mission. It'll be tough, and you might have to sacrifice other crew members, but you're doing it for the sake of love, aren't you?

Then, in Mass Effect 3, there's only one conversation you need to keep your eyes out for. You'll be with Garrus at the Presidium, and Shepard will have the choice to tell Garrus she loves him. Naturally, you'll want to do this. From there, it's smooth sailing until the end of the game. Now, you get to ride into the sunset with your beloved Garrus.
