Stardew Valley Dating Guide
No one wants to be alone. In Stardew Valley game, being alone is not only sad, but also requires a lot of effort to cope with all tasks on the farm. We decided to write a quick guide to romantic relations in Stardew Valley, so you could find your loved one, and don’t puzzle on what to do, to make her or him love you.
Generally, social relationship is a very important thing in this game. You can find a lot of friends and choose almost every character from Pelican Town to date it. You can even start some romantic relations with a bachelorette or bachelor. However, to love, or to marry somebody, you need to become friends first. Friendship is mostly based on gifts. Obviously, if someone appreciates your gift, it increases your friendship points. But don’t be blinded by such an apparent simplicity, since if you choose a bad gift, it will decrease your friendship, and several bad gifts in a row can even make a character hate you!
Basically, you can give each character up to two Stardew Valley gifts per week. You have to choose your gifts carefully, considering tastes of each particular villager. Of course, there are some items that are mostly loved among villagers, as well as there are some items that probably nobody would like to take from you. Even though there are certain categories of mostly loved or mostly hated gifts, every villager has its own preferences, and you must take it into account, as well as a certain percent of risk.
Even if you gave somebody two gifts this week, but it’s his or her birthday, you must give an extra present. Obviously, if somebody forgets to give you a birthday present, you feel bad about it, and Stardew Valley characters are no different. Along with presents, you have to spend your time with villagers and participate in their lives. Depending on how good you’re at it, it will build your heart scale. As soon as you get three hearts with your chosen one, you two are considered friends. Get ready for letters with interesting recipes.
All marriage candidates have their favorite places, so you need to meet them there and start a conversation. You can also always visit somebody, but interesting places often hide an opportunity for exclusive dialogue. Usually there’s only one right answer to every question, so use your logic and think what differs this character from others, and which answer would look best in this situation.
Let your Stardew Valley romance develop in a natural way, until you’ll get eight hearts with this character. It’s an important point in your relations, so now you need to make a brave step forward, purchasing a bouquet. You can find it in a grocery store, and it’s a significant event, since giving a bouquet to your loved one, your relationship becomes officially romantic. A next stage requires ten-heart relationship, and as soon as you’ll get ten hearts, prepare to spend a lot of money. Of course, money can’t buy you love, but saving 5,000 gold, you can buy a present that will surely impress every pretty girl. Find the Old Mariner. He often walks on the beach when it rains. The beach can be unlocked with 300 wood. Find the Mariner at the North Side, buy a Mermaid’s Pendant and give it to your chosen one.
We also suggest you to rebuild a bridge during your first year in farm. You also need to upgrade your house at least once. After you gave the pendant to your loved one, wait three days, and a wedding ceremony will start.
Right after the wedding, your spouse will move to your house and help you with your everyday routine. They will even cook for you! However, even if you’re already married, it doesn’t mean that you can just lie on the couch watching football and drinking beer. Just like in the real life, your relationship may become better or worse, depending on your behavior. Stardew Valley dating is based on gifts, so now you should be careful with gifts. There are stories about players who were too interested in other villagers, so a wife was really mad about it. If you want to give a gift to another girl, never do it secretly. We don’t know how, but your spouse will surely know about it, and… well, you know. And of course, you shouldn’t give bouquets to everyone. Some players tell stories about successful romances with bouquets, but it seems to be possible only when you already have a strong, twelve-heart relationship with your wife or husband.
Get ready for a strange behavior of your spouse, if you’re doing mess or don’t want to work. Moreover, some characters have cheated on players, if they haven’t paid enough attention to them. We think that you don’t want to raise someone else’s baby, so better love your wife or husband, and don’t forget about gifts, never.
