Harvest Moon 64 Tips

getting a girl to like you quickly
First take your dog and then go talk to her after doing this about fifty times the girls heart with raise (you can keep doing this until she wants to marry you)

Note: This "cheat" only works on Karen. I tried too many times on the other girls, but it did not work on any of them except for Karen. It also helps to talk to her at night when she is at the tavern, because there is no time limit. Here are the aprox. amount of times you have to talk to her and for what heart color:
about 48 times=Blue heart
about 100 times TOTAL=Green heart
about 151-152 times TOTAL=Gold heart
about 203-204 times TOTAL=Pink heart
