Oaks successful confession

Successfully confessing to Oaks

Romance can only begin after the player confesses to a character. The player can confess after reaching Friend status with an eligible character.

A Heart Knot can be purchased at Alice's Flower Shop. When the player has a Heart Knot in their inventory they can give it as a gift to confess their feelings.

There is a chance a character will reject the player's confession. The more hearts the player has with a character the less chance the character will reject them. The chance of successful confession can be increased with Matchmaker social skill.

If a character accepts the player's confession, their relationship status with the player changes, making new interactions available.


Social interact

Successful confession unlocks new new social interactions with a character. The player can cuddle with the character they are dating, ask them for a massage, or kiss them.

Each of the interactions can be done up to three times per day for a small relationship boost. Cuddling rewards the +1 relationship point. Massage rewards +1 relationship point and restores 5 Stamina to the player. Kissing rewards +2 relationship points.


Main article: Play and Date

After a character accepts the player's confession they can be taken on dates instead of play dates for a significant relationship boost. A number of locations and interactions is available only when dating.

Dating can be initiated once per week. Only one character can be dated with per day.


Jealousy date

Caught on a date

The player can romance several characters at once. They will not get a penalty unless they are caught by the character they are romancing while dating or interacting with another character.

If the player is caught while on a date with another character, the date immediately ends end their date partner gets -50 relationship points. The character who caught them gets -30 relationship points.

If the player is caught while hugging or kissing another character, both the character the player interacted with and the character who caught them get -30 relationship points.

Both characters will be upset and have broken hearts in their social status. They will refuse to talk, interact, or date with the player. They will still accept gifts.

Using Apology Bear

The broken heart status can be removed by gifting an Apology Bear purchased at the Badge Exchange.

If the player does not gift an Apology Bear within a week after a character gets jealous, their romantic relationship with that character ends. The character is reverted to Buddy (3 hearts).

Romance missions and cutscenes will not trigger jealousy even if several characters the player is romancing are involved in them.
