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.

I did not get the declare attraction either. What level are you on in the general status (Not relationship status)? You have to be on level eleven to have a baby and then you have to purchase the bassinet.

My Sims are friends and they are married.
My sims already got married but the honeymoon furniture still hasn’t unlocked, yet I’ve unlocked the baby furniture which I won’t be able to have one until I’m able to get a double sleeper bed. Help!

You need to finish a marriage quest for the honeymoon furniture, and you can get the Sleepytime Double in the furniture and it's not in the Honeymoon furniture.

You don't need to have the married quest. All you need to do is complete the wedding collection in the Home Collections.

Retired sims aren’t playable. Maybe age up your other sims. I know you can do it.
Usually by relationship level 3 or 4 I could have my Sims proposebut for some reason I don’t have that option anymore. I’m almost at level 10 with two couples and I still haven’t had the option to propose. Please help.

My sim is at level 10 in a relationship but the game won’t give the the option to complete the chapter. It says I’m 94% complete and will only allow me to to the quick, standard or long hang out. Which I have done repeatedly hoping for the end chapter. How can this glitch be fixed?
