Yes, you can romance multiple companions in Fallout 4. In fact, you can romance all characters at once if you want to. However, be cautious not to flirt with another companion close by, especially one you’ve already romanced. Flirting in front of them with another companion can damage your relationship with them. You’ll notice this when you reach affinity speeches while talking to a different companion. To avoid this, ensure you’re away from any previously romanced characters when flirting with a new one. Otherwise, they’ll react negatively to your actions, and you’ll get a “[Companion Name] hate that” message onscreen.
