Roots of Pacha – Bachelorette Romance Guide

Roots of Pacha is Stardew Valley but in the stone age. If you’re looking for a new farming and life sim, then the recently released Roots of Pacha is one for you to check out. In this game, you can befriend mastodons, master the art of fire, and use your stone tools to advance your clan. But something that remains unchanged throughout the ages? Falling in love.

In Roots of Pacha there are 11 different people that you can date, fall in love and eventually marry. There are 6 males and 5 females to choose from and you can date any and all regardless of your gender. In this guide, we’ll go through all of them. How the dating and marriage system works, what everyone’s favourite gift is and all their flower events.

In this guide, we’ll go through the romance guide for all five of Roots of Pacha‘s bachelorettes.


All The Bachelorettes


How to Romance Someone

In Roots of Pacha and real life, you can gain friendship points by speaking with the people of the clan and by giving them gifts that they like.


Next to the name of each NPC is a picture of a flower. Platonic friendships will be shown with a yellow flower Roots of Pacha Yellow Flower, while characters that are romanceable will have a pink flower Roots of Pacha Pink Flower. As your friendship improves with that person the number of flowers will increase.

Once you reach 6 flowers with a romanceable character, they will ask you to start dating them. You can date all the characters date all of the characters at the same time, with no repercussions, and gender doesn’t matter.


Once you reach 10 flowers with one of the romanceable, they will ask you if you want to form a union together (get married). It will take 4 days for the marriage to happen.

Once you marry someone in Roots of Pacha, they will move into your house and follow their normal schedule as if nothing changed. Your spouse will give you meals in the morning if you talk to them while they are cooking and will also occasionally give you gifts.
