From Harvest Moon | Rune Factory Wiki
There are a variety of people whom you can interact with in Rune Factory. The eleven marriagable girls are listed in <a href="?games/Rune_Factory/Marriage">another section</a>. All names are romanized from Japanese, with the romanji for the name right beside it (explaining why some may seem...weird.)
[b]Giving items (gifts) to people is totally unnecessary.[/b] If you talk to a person every day, that will raise his or her friendship points (FP). Talking to people on festival days makes their FP go up even more. 10 is the maximum number of friendship points any person can have.
