Does "Hook up" ever actually work?

    I've tried this a couple of times but the Sims to be hooked up always have excuses, i.e., "I don't really know her that well," "Well, that didn't go well. We won't be dating again anytime soon." How friendly do the Sims have to be for a hook up to work? What's the point in being able to hook up two Sims if it only works with Sims who are friends, which you can't control with Sims you're not playing?

    It also is apparently impossible to hook up a member of your own household with anybody. I like the idea of the hook up feature, but it doesn't seem to be a very good thing the way it's designed. Am I missing something?

    So far it worked 1 out of 4 times in my game, I tried to hook up members of my household with others non-played households. But I still would want to know how it works, what the requirements for it to work are because right now it just seems kind of random.

    Oh yes every time I've hooked someone up with someone else I've gotten a text that says they are dating the person.

    The three of four times I have tried it has been successful. Perhaps that is because the two I've hooked up are in the same group/s or already live together. I'm not too sure of the requirements but you would think it is mandatory for their to be a minimum level friendship, at least - The same way it is for our active Sims to create a romantic interest.

    I guess it's hard to force relationships. Sometimes they just aren't mean to be together. Maybe they made it especially rare for it to actually work because of that.

    I can't quite figure out when it even becomes an option. Sometimes it's there, sometimes it's not. Anyone?

    It's been successful in my game, my sims suggested a club member hook up with one of her housemates, a little while later I got a message saying thanks because they were now dating!

    i just...
    hook up to me doesn't mean they should be dating afterwards lmao
    How can i truly have a party sim if they can't kiss a stranger and move on without some random getting jealous and violent. Would love a mod for this interaction tbh to lower whatever requirements there are and not force a full romance. there's stories to be written about sims that kiss more than they date

    well, hook up for me, doesn't mean they need to move on to "dating"...
    for me (language) it's more like a ah... "one night stand"
    yeah i know its not the only definition...

    unless maybe they share a lot of traits and the system would actually score them 90-100% compatible which can be a rare chance.
    i just like it for my sims to get weird sometimes.

    I wanted my sim to hook up with someone but he/she was married so I couldn't hooked them up. it maybe depends if your sims or other sims are in a relationship they can't do the the Hook up interaction

    It's really easy to miss, but it's under 'Friendly' then 'Other sims' and lastly 'Hook up with':)
