  • If your lover is sick or injured, you could stop by his home and nurse him.

  • If you ever stand up your date, he can get really mad at you.

  • If you call someone late at night at a low affection level, he could get upset. But at a high affection level, they might instead ask you not to hang up. 😁

  • The five love interests have all got different tastes and preferences, showing diverse reactions when gifted with an item. Finding and trading stuff for the best gift items can really help with your romantic pursuits!
