Romantic actions in sims freeplay

I have two sims that are best friends and I am attempting to make them form a romantic relationship. However, the only interactions that appear are chest bump, complain, be nice, be funny and be rude. How do I get the romantic options to appear?
Sorry if this is a stupid question but I can't work it out as I can't get the best friend metre to increase :P

Well I'm not sure but I think you have to get one of the Sims to have a rich lather in the shower first then a "flirt"option will be available .. And if this doesnt work then I think you shoul turn the sims to aqquaintances first by doing rude things to them... Then have a rich lather then the flirt option will pop ... Hope this helped.

chelsi101 answered:

Hey I had the same problem and like you I couldn't find an answer anywhere. I finished the goal of getting 4 Sims to Dance at the same time, and a marriage Quest came up! So to unlock romance you have to do a quest now.

Guest answered:

Like chelsi101 said, you have to wait until you are level 6 to unlock a new questline now. This allows you to be able to propose marriage, and if you do it in 48 hours then you unlock the bride and groom outfits

You first need to finish the "Bread Winner" quest. This one isn't too hard. Next I believe you unlock "Money Grows On Trees", if I'm correct, you should then get the "Love is in the air quest", and at the end you can make Sims be romantic. This also allows you to have babies ;D
Guest said: 6th May 2018 | REPORT
I had the same problem but after checking about 13 diferent websites it told me you have to complete the "Bread Winner" quest and then the "Money Grows On Trees", and I'm 99.9% sure that if you complete those two tasks/quests, it will allow you to unlock the "Love Is In The Air" quest, and then you will be able to become partners after that

ZombieBatman answered:

Okay so since one can give a straight answer you have to wait until you get the Quest RICH LATHER IN SHOWER you don't have to be rude just wait for this quest have them take a shower RICH LATHER option takes 15 mins right after a flirt option will pop up I didn't get this quest until half way to level 8 make sure you do your Goals so you will get it faster hope this helps

My name is Allie. And I know you all are trying to figure out all this but what you really gotta do... Is try! See tring is practice! And practice means perfect! The more you try the better. I try and I believe some time in history that I will get this sexy romance or whatever. And when I do I will report on how to do it I promise! Oh and now I just see a thing to get married and have babies! Press it and it'll show you! Listen if I can do it. You can. I what the romance and I bet you do too! But tring might get you to your goal. Will you try? (Yes no.) thanks!

Guest answered:

People have been giving you incomplete answers and a lot of mixed messages. (Never good for a relationship! ;) If you catch my drift)

Here is how you get two Sims to start a romantic relationship:

The option will not become available until the game presents you with your first Quest. A quest is like a series of tasks that you have to get through to complete.

This option will only become available after you have completed all tasks up to getting a fourth Sim, buying a 2star stereo, and having all four Sims Dance together. After you do this (it's very easy just keep working through the tasks one by one) you will be asked to build another Business in The Town Map.

After you do this, you'll get a notification telling you the first Quest is to start a romance, and the first task to complete this quest is for a Sim to have a rich lather shower. After that, just keep doing the tasks and Quests as they come. Be patient, you'll get there eventually.

Rich lather will NOT work until you are presented with the Quest.
It does NOT matter what level you are on.
You can NOT begin a relationship without completing all the tasks leading up to the Quest.

Relationship actions will be in PURPLE. Green is for friendship and red is for enemies.

That's it, good luck!

You have to keep being nice to people, and then you'll get some more romantic options. Or a Quest, that's what I've heard.

Guest answered:

Yeah I'm on level 8 and it comes up with 'Be romantic' but it won't let my Sims be romantic until I do this Quest thing called 'Love Is In The Air' unlocked at level 6, but I've already got through level 6 and I don't remember a quest like that, please help me I really want them to start going out!!!

Make the Sims complain to each other. Believe it or not but it increases the Bar very quickly and you can move past best friends

You flirt by first having one Sim in the shower getting rich lathered and then you invite another Sim to the house. You then go over to the other Sim and click on them. It will have the options for talking, there will be a flirt one, just click on it and you will flirt!

Guys i found a way to level up than best friends.just complain and it gets bigger ps i found it in the comments but it really helps this may 2016
Guest answered:

I know this is going to sound crazy but I had my Sims on best friends and they weren't moving up I go kind of annoyed so I made them complain and to my surprise they moved up so I kept doing that and it worked

Guest answered:

You have to be on level six then a thing will pop up that says Love Is In The Air do what it says and you will get married

Guest answered:

Easy you be a person as 2 Sims and the person your on has to have a crystal over his and then click a female. Then tap on romantic

Guest answered:

All you do is finish the Cooking test then the money grows on trees, then the Quest 'Love in The Air' quest will pop up and just follow what they tell you to do

Guest answered:

To answer everyone's question to why you can't get your Sims to be romantic. If when you started your game and did not go step by step with each task it gives you then you will not unlock the romantic options. You have to do every step and goal first before you can get this option

Guest answered:

I had the same problem but what you have to do is start the Love Is In The Air Quest available at level 6. While your completing it you will get more options that will allow them to kiss on the hand and be romantic and if you do those actions then they will start a relationship.😃

First you get a Cooking Quest then another quest and then the love in the air quest. You have to finish the other quest first and then that quest will come. It doesn't matter if you are past level 6/7 after level 6/7 the quest unlocks. I haven't done it yet so I'm not 100 percent sure but if you open your task list and then press pending Quests you can find the love In the air quest (might need to scrol side ways) I hope I helped in some way.

My romantic option showed up and says to reach level 7 to flirt but I'm at 8 and still wont let me flirt. You have complain anout stuff when it gets to the best friend and it shoots up, idk why complaining is it but thats how you get it up.

Guest answered:

This requires you to complete the main Quest Love Is In The Air. Before this comes Money Grows on Trees, and before that I believe is the first one, Bread Winner. After you complete Love is in the Air, romantic actions and Relationships become available.

Coolgirl11 answered:

If you are having trouble unlocking the"Love Is In The Air" Quest, this answer is for you!!! First you must reach level 7, then complete"Bread Winner" quest and "Money Grows On Trees" quest, you can find them in your "acvive Quests" icon. When you have completed the "Bread Winner" quest, "Money Grows On Trees" quest will automatically appear as your new quest, afterwards when you have completed both quests, you will have unlocked"Love Is In The Air" quest. Hope this helped!

You have to reach level 7 first
Guest answered:

If you haven't reached level level 7 or completed the Quest 'Love Is In The Air' you can't do any romantic actions yet

Guest answered:

You have to be more than friends

Guest answered:

Wrong,you have to do the QuestLove Is In The Air” get to a certain level to do so

Guest answered:

You just have to complain to them. The meter Bar will go up.

Guest answered:

You need to be past level 7 and to have completed the ‘Love Is In The AirQuest. If they are best friends, then make sure that they either haven’t started filling the Bar or just finish that level of friendship then when there is nothing in the bar of the next Status (or of the best friend status) do a romantic option and it should start turning purple. I hope this helps.

Guest answered:

You also have to make sure that the Sims are the same Age or at least both above young Adult.

Guest answered:

So to be able to use romantic actions I believe there is a Quest. I can't remember properly. You need to level up and possibly complete a quest

Guest answered:

You have to do Love Is In The Air qust

Guest answered:

You might have to complete the love in the air Quest. This unlocks during level 7. Complete that quest and you should be fine.

You have to be level seven to do be romantic to form a romantic relationship between two Sims

Guest answered:

You will need to complete the “Love Is In The AirQuest to get the be romantic option

Guest answered:

You have to make them complain and or be rude to get the best friends ratings up I just figured it out

Guest answered:

If you want your Sims to be romantic you need to finish the Love Is In The Air Quest before hand and to do that you first need to try and find which quest it is so if you try your Quests is should come up and when you find it you need to finish the quest once you have finished the romantic trait will come up when you tap on another sim and it should come up complain be rude and stuff like that and romantic should come up too and if you keep being romantic your sim can soon be married and have a child together so just finish the quest and they can be romantic

Guest answered:

Ok so what you do is go to the Sims that you want to be romantic and it will say "be romantic"click it, it will then say "hold up hotshot complete the Love Is In The Air Quest to complete this action " then you need to level up to unlock it and when you do it you can have sims get married but if you ask me you should complete it in two days,if you do you'll unlock cool Items(wedding dresses,suits,wedding tiaras)I already have the next quest is the "Two and a Half Sims quest"it will unlock you to build the maternity st ore and have babies! If you ask me it is I cool quest cause I did it it 's easy and fast!hope this helps!(p.S I'm super sorry if this is to long I really wanted to do it to tell you all the things to do)
😀You can do it!😀

Guest answered:

Depends what gender, maybe they also have to high of friendship

Guest answered:

You have to do Love Is In The Air Quest. You can do it if you alredy reached level 7. It is a progression quest. You can find it if you tap one active quest button on the left courner. Than you go to the simdex. And there it is. I hope this is helpful!

Guest answered:

You need to have competed love in in the air Quest

Guest answered:

A button that comes up that says "Be Romantic" should show up, but your game might be bugged if it is COMPLETELY GONE or maybe look an extra time?

Sometimes when I don't see an action, I Notice it later.
Also once your sim is a bestfriend with someone the meter doesn't go up UNLESS you make them do mean/romantic actions like complain/be romantic then the meter fills up red/pink and eventually they have a 'disliked' or "budding romance" relationship.

Guest answered:

If they are not level 7 it won't work
