       1. Introduction
    This guide has been reconstructed in the form of notes, and not ugly
    paragraphs. This makes updating easier, and it's easier to glance
    through if you're looking for specific information. The original
    guide was written by Cyber Sushi, but I (sto0pidkid) was the one who
    made some changes. So you'll see 'I' and 'we'. It may get a little
    confusing, but if it's important we'll indicate who's saying what.
    Further updates of the guide are done by Cyber Sushi.
    What's better than harvesting your own crops to become a multi-
    millionaire? Dating. This guide will give you pointers on how to get
    one of the eligible bachelorettes in this game. We go in-depth with
    what they like, what they dislike, and we even teach you how to have
    The color of the heart when talking to these lovely ladies shows you
    where you stand on their love-o-meter:
                                WHITE : Indifferent
                                 BLUE : Friendly
                                GREEN : Flirtatious
                               YELLOW : Enamored
                                 PINK : Truly in Love
    These dating techniques listed will not work in real life. If you know
    a girl named Ann, don't give her eggs. If you do, please don't blame
       2. The Girls - ooh la la
    Below are the five lucky ladies you get to choose as your wife. Each

    characteristics among other useless trivia.

       3. Competition
    You're not the only guy in town that's interested in these ladies. For
    each girl, there are three possible outcomes. She can get married to you,
    married to another specified person, or not get married at all. Obviously,
    there's no problem with a girl you're not interested in getting married, in
    which case you should encourage the two parties. The following are the couples:
    Karen and Kai [works at vineyard]
    Ann and Cliff [travelling guy with falcon]
    Popuri and Gray [Ann's brother]
    Elli and Guy at bakery [don't remember his name]
    Maria and Harris [mail carrier]
    In most cases, the other guy isn't much of a threat. You have a brain. He
    doesn't. There are mixed opinions on what you should do with your rival.
    Friend or foe? If you wish to do so, give him weeds and be mean to him. Or
    be friends with him. If you want another couple to get married, simply talk
    to both of them a lot, and just be friends with 'em. In some cases, the guys
    will confess their affection. When they get married, they'll come to your house
    and ask you to attend.
       4. Marriage
    Finally, the fruits of your labors are about to pay off. You'll
    eventually be able to find the Blue Feather at Rick's shop. Just be
    patient if it's not there right away. If you're friends with him
    he'll sell it to you for 980G otherwise it's a 1000G. You need a
    kitchen to get married.
    Talk to your wife at twice a day (morning & night at the very least).
    Give her a gifts daily to make her feel good about who she is. A
    happy wife is a productive wife. If she's happy, she'll help out
    around the house, and even lead to a little bundle of joy, which will
    pop another picture in your photo album.
    If you're mean to your wife, and her heart goes down a few colors,
    she'll leave a note saying she went back to her parent's house for a
    while. Fortunately it's easy to make up with her. If you do decide you're
    better off without her, all the mentioned girls in the game will
    disappear, but you'll still get treated as though you're still
    How Your Wife Helps Out:
       Ann - Feeds the chickens and collect eggs.
     Karen - Collects eggs, sometimes breaking them.
    Popuri - Waters crops and collects eggs.
      Elli - Collects eggs, and sometimes feeds chickens.
     Maria - Helps with removing weeds and collects eggs.
       5. Children
    If you've been good to your wife, and your house is supporting a
    baby bed, then you could soon become a happy father. After a season
    of talking to her, and giving her her daily gift, she will eventually
    become pregnant. When she is pregnant she'll be tired (even in the
    morning), and say odd things. And keep giving her gifts. A happy wife
    will give birth quicker. Although varied, it's approximately 2
    seasons since acknowledge of her pregnancy for your little bundle of
    When he's born, treat him as well as your wife. Your kid never gets past the 'child stage.'
    Pick him up for a walk, give him gifts, and show him your dog. The stages of development are:
     · Newborn
     · Crawling
     · Crawling
     · Still crawling, but with a mouse hat.
    There are roughly three seasons separating the stages.
       5. Extra Tips
    Some general tips:
     · Talk to your girl every day, and try to bring her presents.
     · Become comrades with her family.
     · When you get married, talk to your wife at least twice a day.
     · The girl your pursuing will get sick, make sure you go to her house
       to cheer her up. This is the only time you're allowed into their
     · Every girl will twist their ankle [see girls section for location]and you'll
       have the option to carry them home, or call for help. Carry them home. If you
       call for help, your heart rating goes DOWN one level.
     · Talk to her first at every festival.
     · At every chance, dance with your bride-to-be. In order to do this,
       you shouldn't vote for her to become the Flower Princess,
       otherwise you'll miss out. Unless she likes you a lot, or the King
       likes you a lot.
     · The hidden treasure map found in a tree in your very own yard will help
       you get a broken music box which can become a very nice gift for your
       girl. The box is located at the intersection of the tree with the map and the
       dog house. Dig on this square 10 times to uncover it. Once you have the b
       bring it to Rick who will fix it. Next, give it to your girl of choice.
       Broken music boxes aren't nice presents, silly.
