1.) Relationships/Statuses
???: This status is pretty obvious
Crush: If you have high stats and decide not to pursue a guy, or decide not to raise your impression on a guy, they may develop a crush on you. You may encounter some events where he doesn’t know how to act around you. This status is not labelled in the impressions.
Dating: Friendship and love at medium
Friendzoned: Rejecting him when he asks you to be in a relationship. Easy to avoid dating events with them if you saw them already.
Broken Up: Breaking up in the middle of a relationship through different events. For some guys, if your love isn’t high, it stays that way forever because he doesn’t feel the need to fix it.
Your Obsession (not in the people screen status): If you choose the crazy face enough, it might hinder your chances of spending time with a person. Events that get hindered are calling them out on a date, and them feeling creeped out when you give them a present.

2.)Encounters and Clubs
In order to start warming up to someone, you must encounter/see them a number of times before events can happen.
-Clubs is a good way to see someone
-Seeing them in a chibi scene
-Raising a certain stat so certain people approach you when they noticed you changed

3.)Who’s in Which Club?
-Chase: Chess
-Lucas: Basketball
-Huang: Anime
-Dimitri: Drama
-Tamera: Cheerleading
-Alice: Cooking
-Naomi: Music

4.) Report Card:
Stats affect the report card. It’s a great way to see where you’re at. It can affect if you go to summer school or not, and if your allowance is cut. It’s also an indicator showing you if you’re raising stats well for the endings.

Academics: Math
Athletics: PE
Charm: Lit
Fashion: Art

5.)Ways the raise MC’s impression on others:
A.)MC’s friendship impression: Wanting to hang out/interaction
-Walk home
-Call someone
-Seeing and interacting in a certain event
-Go to Tamera’s house and when she talks about a certain guy, a “how do I feel about this?” appears after each one.
B.)MC’s love: Wanting to impress
-Going on an expensive date. The more money, the more MC’s love impression rises.
C.)How do I feel about this?: Raises your own impression
Happy: Raises friendship
Sad: Lowers friendship
Blush: Raises love and a tad of friendship
Mad: Lowers love and tad of friendship
Crazy Face: Raises a lot of love, and adds one point of obsession (10 or more can ruin some chances with guys, such as calling them on the phone and they change their mind about going out).
Whatever Face: Changes nothing

6.)Going after multiple people:
-Activates certain friendship events
-Repairs some people’s friendships
-Certain people react differently in certain events, such as jealousy
-Confrontation for two-timing their friends (you can avoid if they’re not good friends with each other)

7.)Dating Mode
-After getting his phone number, you have chances to go out to raise your impressions.
-If you both have your impressions at medium, he will approach you at school and ask you to be his girlfriend
-Needed for CGs, story cycles, and full endings.

8.) Stats guys like, all in order from most liked. The first two are required for endings.
-Chase – academics, athletics , then charm
-Lucas – athletics, charm, then fashion
-Dimitri – charm, fashion, then academics
-Huang – fashion, academics, then charm
-Blaze – fashion, athletics, then charm

9.) Fashion likes
-Chase – loves elegant, likes natural
-Lucas – loves urban, likes sporty
-Dimitri – loves sexy, likes chic
-Huang – loves pure, likes cute
-Blaze – loves bizarre, likes bday, costumes and loud

10.) Fashion hates

Avoiding the same outfit twice

-Don’t wear the same top, bottom or full outfit twice with one guy, with the exception of outerwear.
Example: If you wore a pink dress with Dimitri, and your second date with him is three weeks later, he will remember the same dress.

12.) Multiple People Events:
Friendship Fixes:
-Third Year: Be good friends with Alice and Tamera
-Be good friends with Huang and Lucas

13.) Random Confrontations:
-Date Lucas and Chase
-Date Dimitri and Huang

14.)Theme Park: – A good way to raise friendship impressions for both people
Seeing Naomi and Huang
-If you choose to keep looking, you will encounter Dimitri and Tamera
-They both dislike the Yellivator
Seeing Dimitri and Tamera
-If Lucas or Chase joined the theme park party, you will get a choice of keep looking. Then you’ll encounter them.
-They don’t mind any ride
Seeing Chase and/or Lucas
-Their favorite ride is the Yellivator

15.) Allowance
-There’s a base allowance of $20 you get every month. If you fail and go to summer school, you get $10 until your next final marks.
-Getting bonus money from academics
-The “just because” part is based on the hidden relationship between you and your mom. Giving gifts to your mom and agreeing to let her teach you cook raises that relationship.
-Getting a job (raises a lot of stress)

16.) Extra Advice (jobs, dating, money, fashion): Go to Tamera’s house to talk to friends.

17.) Jobs:
-Need medium charm to get hired. (40-50, depending on the job).
-You get paid at the beginning of each month.
