Getting married is one of the big goals in this game. There are five girls available for marriage: Ann, Elli, Karen, Mary, and Popuri. Give them many gifts until they like you enough to accept your proposal. You'll need to have upgraded your house twice, and once a girl is at a red heart (or close to it), a Blue Feather will become available at the supermarket. Buy it, and propose to the girl with that.

Heart Rates

You can tell how much each girl likes you by looking at the color of the heart at the end of each of their dialogue boxes. You'll see a cutscene with a girl each time her heart rate raises. Here's a general guide as to what each heart means:

  • [black] - You are strangers.
  • [purple] - You're acquaintances.
  • [blue] - You're pretty good friends by now.
  • [green] - You're good friends, and maybe a little flirty.
  • [yellow] - She probably has a crush on you.
  • [orange] - She's starting to really, really like you.
  • [red] - She loves you! Now's the time to propose!
