Dirk (ディルカ, Diruka) is a secret eligible marriage candidate in Harvest Moon: The Tale of Two Towns.

Dirk has grown-up since his appearance in Harvest Moon DS: Grand Bazaar, and he now becomes taller and pass about the same height as the bachelors in TToTT.

The mailman between the two towns. Everyday, Dirk travels from town to town, so he can be a bit hard to find if you don't know his schedule. He delivers the mail everyday except for Sundays, full-rain days and stormy days. He gets home at 12:00AM.

To unlock Dirk, it must be Summer 1 of Year 1 or later. Walk from Konohana Low-Mountain area to the Konohana entrance area between 9 AM and 8 PM a sunny, snowy or half-rain day. If you are riding your horse, this event will NOT trigger. Once Dirk is unlocked, he will live in Konohana in the empty house north of the shipping box.

Unlike other bachelors, Dirk does not have heart events that need to be triggered in order to marry him. His heart level is invisible, and there are a set of special requirements that need to be fulfilled in order to marry him.

Marriage Requirements

Dirk doesn't have any flower events that you'll need to trigger if you want to marry him. Instead, he has a lot of extra marriage requirements you must complete. You will need to finish the basic marriage requirements of a house upgrade and be in year 2 or later. Because Dirk is a special bachelor he has the normal white friendship flowers, and you need to have them at the full-bloom friendship flower level (60,000 FP or more). You will also need to:

  • Complete the tunnel between the towns
  • Go on at least 50 dates with him
  • Give at least 80 gifts
  • Give his favorite gift, Cream Croquette, at least once

The game does not keep track of your dates with the bachelors, so if you want to marry him, you need to manually count the number of dates the two of you go on. Once you've completed all of the requirements, you can give Dirk the blue feather to propose marriage. Dirk does not have a reverse proposal.

Even after marriage he will continue to deliver the town's mail. He will be home all day on Sundays and stormy or full-day rainy days. On his work days he'll be home until 6:30 am and then be out and about making deliveries until 8:00 pm.
