You’ll need to reach Support Rank A first with the character you’re trying to romance in the game. Additionally, you’ll have to get your hands on the Pact Ring, which is a very important item in forming romantic relations in Fire Emblem Engage.

Pact Ring can only be obtained near the end of the story. You’ll have to complete a Paralogue that unlocks during the 22nd chapter of the game. Once you complete that paralogue, you’ll get your hands on the Pact Ring. After obtaining the Pact Ring, give it to the character that you’ve been building up your Support Rank with.

Giving the Pact Ring to a character with Support Rank A will increase the rank of that character to S, leading to the formation of a romantic relationship with that character. Once you’ve reached the S rank with your favorite character and formed a romantic relationship, you’ll also unlock a special cutscene where the character confesses their feelings for the player additionally.
