Experienced the thrill of romance with Alistair

Ask him about his past as a Templar. See Hopelessly Romantic for more details.

As far as romance goes, Alistair likes for women. If you are a female character and wish to become romantically involved with Alister, ask him about his templar past and compliment him when ever possible. He's an easy one to win over. Once you have, simply ask him to join you in your tent back at camp.

Easiest way

First time you're at camp (after Lothering) talk to Bodhan the merchant dwarf. Buy enough sugar cakes in the "Other" list for 15s each. These give +5 approval every time. Just use enough to max his approval, then go tal to him. The conversation will end a couple times and you need to talk again, but just keep complementing him. When you can, kiss, or ask for him to go to your tent. I did this my first time in camp. Like the first poster said, most people just want this for 100% (me).

I didn't use the sugar cakes (only available as "make up" gifts in the Feastday Pranks, I believe, which I never got. Why would I want to lower approval?). I just used the Feastday gift for Alistair, which gets him most of the way, had maybe three flirty conversations with him, and got him into my tent. Took like 5 minutes once I passed Lothering and got to camp.

Reloaded the save, repeated with Zevran, and, having now finished all the romances, got three achievements in about 10 minutes.
