This feature of GTA is rather intriguing, you will feel like wasting time when spend time with your friends or go on dates but trust me it all counts in the end. Keeping friends and dates happy means spending time with them and doing things that they enjoy.Dates of course maybe little more time consuming. The benefits from each individual depends upon who they are,eg-having a nurse or doctor on your friend list can literally be a lifesaver.
