What is a Relationship?

A relationship is strong connection or bond between two Sims. When both Sims interact, they both profit or lose points in their relationship. A relationship can be platonic, romantic or hostile and it's entirely based on their interaction history of the two Sims. Interacting with other Sims can use up your energy.

How to Improve Relationship

For you to deepen your Sims' relationship, you must interact or socialized with them. Another way to strengthen this bond is to complete Relationship Story you started with them.


Every completed Relationship story has a certain reward. All of these rewards are clothes and accessories you can use to make your Sims appealing in the Sims World. These items are not available in the store.

Different types of Relationship


These are Sims that you do not have any relation with. You don't have feelings towards them. All of the interactions are introductions. The color of the chat bubble is gray.


This is the first level of relationship that you will have with the other Sims if you talk or interact with them three times.


You can initiate a social event with that Sim to make your relationship stronger and to be a friend once your relationship level is at level 2. You can invite them in your house for a tea, share food or just gossip.

Romantic Interest

You can change the status of your friendly relationship with someone to a romantic one during relationship level 3 by initiating a Social Event called "Declare attraction". You'll be a romantic interest after the event.

Close Friend

You can be a close friend to other Sims if that said Sims is a friend of yours and with a relationship level 4. You can start a Social Event called "Deepen friendship" to become close friends.

Sweet Heart

You'll be sweetheart status once you've reached relationship level 5 with your romantic interest. You can now kiss, make out or hold hands.


You can be lovers once you've reached relationship level 7 with your sweetheart. You can now woohoo with your lover, but you must have the at least the Sleepytime Double.


These are Sims connected by blood. One good example is your baby. You can have baby once you've hit relationship level 8 and lover status. Another requirement is the bassinet.


While on relationship level 2, you can declare rivalry with other Sims. That Sims will be your arch nemesis. You can do mean interactions such as slapping or insulting.

What is interaction?

Relationships are formed or destroyed by interactions. These are actions by your Sims towards the other. It can be a friendly gesture or hostile one, but you can acquire a relationship point for each interaction.

When you tap a Sim, you can also add them in your list. You can also give them stickers , view their home or report them if you feel you need to.

Did you check your Sim customization inventory?
How do you get married after the special event is over
I’m interacting and flirting,being friendly but none of it is being counted as a friendly,romantic or rival relationship. I can only have family relationships like brother,sister,mother etc. I can’t get married or date or make friends. What do I do?
Out of curiosity I engaged one of my sims to a sim of another player. As I suppose that this sim of the other player can't get engaged to someone else, I would love to cancel that engagement. Is there a possibility?

I have already checked the rival options but there is no a "break up" interaction. I first thought of marrying and divorcing but then the other player gets a "move in" notification. I rather would like to leave this incident unnoticed. Has someone an idea?

I've engaged in multiple engagements. Not sure how complex the tree can grow but probably for as many SIMs, you can form that many engagements -1 though.

How to you ask a Sim to move in with you? ( It was on the interaction list before, but now it isn’t. And the Sim that I want to move in is my Sim’s Husband!)

I have the same exact problem. I’m on level 10 and I’m married and I still can’t move my husband in. I have another room mate and I’m trying to get them to be good friends so I can move him in that way

You need that player to give up that simple. If they are willing and you have a free slot to add another SIM then it can be completed.

Basically you need control of two devices or build a casualty for that other human to take their SIM.

Is there a way that I can changed my relationship with another sim? If yes, how?

Try different actions but sometimes retirement and a new SIM is the best path. Thus there is no baggage.
Why can’t I marry a sim? We are level 10 soulmates. I have the wedding stuff. It won’t even let me ask them to move in.

You have to click on the wedding arch. The option to marry should be there.

Try to check around lvl 8, you have to propose and then able to marry. These are romantic events. I've married friends together and love interests together.

The next challenge is two who hate each other.

You may need to buy specific items like the out door set for weddings and a double bed.

I had this issue of an NPC bumming around my house. It took me to get a job that the NPC could and should interact to leave my house. That said that isn't cause and effect. Only have happened once.

I tried forming rivalry but this only hurt my hobby's effectiveness. This is something EA is not thinking through.
