@a_cute_squirtle: Felt the same way about the game. Also I didn't really feel that the resources you get mean anything besides "some people will respond better to them as gifts". But you have no control over their acquisition and no real choice to use them so far.
I don't even understand the point of having relationships besides sometimes them giving you charms, is there anything else to it? So I have just been focusing on one person as well.
