The guide on how to get the “Loved and Lost” achievement, which requires you to get heartbreak in Act 1.
How to Obtain Loved and Lost Achievement
I personally had a lot of trouble filling the heartbreak meter in Act 1 (the game very kindly does not want you to fail this early on), so I’ve compiled some of the questions I came across that helped me finally get the bad date achievement while courting Megaricus! I’m sure it’s probably possible with all the other characters, I just had the most trouble getting the good ending with Megaricus personally, so I figured it was a good starting point.
Additional note: it does not seem the “save” v. “risk it” pop up impacts this at all – it simply allows you to save your game. I actually got this achievement after I had blindly clicked “save.”
