Dating is a romantic activity where two Sims spend their time doing romantic things together. This feature is the main theme of The Sims: Hot Date and The Sims 2: Nightlife . It was also reintroduced to The Sims 3 via Patch 22 and the Generations expansion pack , and was included in The Sims 4 base game.
One Sim can ask another to go Downtown , either in person or over the telephone. A Sim who is already Downtown can approach another Sim and say "Let's Date" or "Let's Hang Out". The controllable Sim will be able to use the "Ask About Mood" interaction to determine which motive his or her date wants to fulfill at that moment.
There is no timer or scoring, but if things go badly, the date may autonomously decide to leave. Otherwise, when the controllable Sim says goodbye, the date will end, and a pop-up message will appear, and will give the player a general idea of how the date went. However, if things go really well, the "Invite Home" interaction will appear. If it's chosen and accepted, the controllable Sim will call a taxicab , and both Sims will get in and go to that Sim's house. When they arrive, the date will be over, and the situation will be one Sim visiting another.
