Two hearts

During the summer when the sun’s shining, visit the beach when Alex is there.

During this event, Alex will tell you he’s sure he’s going to be the first professional grid ball player from Stardew Valley, and ask you what you think his chances are. Neither answer will affect your friendship level.

Four hearts

Go to town between 09:00-16:00.

After approaching him during a sensitive moment, Alex will ask if you heard what he was saying. Neither of your answers will affect your friendship level, and he will explain the situation regardless.

Five hearts

Upon lamenting that he hasn’t read any of the books on his shelves, he admits he’s worried he is worthless and won’t get anywhere in life without being knowledgeable. You have three dialogue options.

  • ‘That’s crazy. You’re a genius!’ – no effect
  • ‘We all have our strengths and weaknesses’ – +50 friendship
  • ‘Worthless? Yeah, that about sums it up.’ – -50 friendship

Six hearts

Go into Alex’s house when he’s there.

Eight hearts

During the summer when the sun’s shining, visit the beach when Alex is there or visit the Ginger Island resort when Alex is there.

Alex will share a very emotional moment with you. None of the dialogue options will affect your friendship, so pick which one you feel fits you best.

Ten hearts

You’ll receive a letter from Alex asking you to meet him at the Stardrop Saloon. Once you’ve received the letter, enter the Saloon between 19:00-22:00.

Alex will admit to having feelings for you, and you will be posed with two dialogue choices. Neither will affect your friendship level.
