Once you increase the number of relationship stars Matthew has (through gift-giving) to certain levels, you’ll have the ability to trigger the following events. Note that you have to complete each event (starting with the introduction) before the next one can trigger, no matter if you already have enough hearts for a later one.

Introduction Event

Vesta’s Farm, Spring 2 or later, daytime: Talk to Vesta, who will ask about how your farm is doing. She’ll say that if you need any help, you can rely on her brother Matthew. You’ll then be introduced, after which you can begin giving him gifts to build the relationship.

Two-Heart Event
