Reaching this level, but talking to another Sim, rewards you with 100 XP and the 'Hand Shake' action.
Don't be horrible to the other Sim and you can reach this stage, with a 150XP reward to boot.
Reach this stage to unlock the 'Bro Hug' interaction and the 'Ask to Move In' interaction. To have reached this point, focus on being as kind and friendly as possible to the target Sim - getting to this stage is relatively simple.

Use 'Be Romantic' and 'Dance' to unlock this stage, 150 XP and the 'Kiss Hand' action - this will allow you to advance even further through the ranks.
The next step up from 'Kiss Hand' is 'Kiss Cheek', for 200 XP and the knowledge that your Sims are now dating!
