In "The Sims 3," understanding how romance works is important if you want to find a spouse and have children. Many of the Sims in town are single and will fall in love with you, given enough time. A few Sims, however, are already in a relationship with someone else. These Sims may like flirting with you, but unless they break up with their partner, they will refuse to go out with you. If you are intent on dating a certain Sim, it is possible to ask them to leave their current relationship.
Interact with the desired Sim frequently. Ask him to go out with you to the park or to see a movie. Cook dinner and invite him to your house. When the Sim is too busy to go out, call him and talk.
Show the Sim that you care about her feelings. Do not immediately try to flirt with her or initiate romance. Ask about her day, job or hobbies. Do this often to see the Friendship meter raise to the "Good Friends" level.
Take the Sim to a private place when you are ready to confess your feelings. Select "Romantic" and then "Confess Attraction." If you have built a strong relationship with the Sim, he will respond happily. If not, he will usually get angry and leave.
Click on "Romantic" again and scroll to the bottom of the list. Select "Ask to break up." A message appears on the screen to let you know whether the Sim has decided to break up her relationship or not. If she has, you are free to ask her out.
Tips & Warnings
- When you break up a Sim's relationship, watch out for her ex-partner. He instantly becomes your enemy and may want to fight you.
