The Sims 2 has several social interactions that can be classified as romantic. For clarity, a romantic interaction is an interaction that.

  1. Can create love or a crush.
  2. Can't be performed between family members.
  3. Can only performed between certain age groups. Teens can only do it with other teens and adults and elders can only perfrom them between themselves.

The following is a catalogue of all romantic interactions in The Sims 2. Sim A is the initiator and Sim B is the reciprient.

The first kiss can only be performed once. It's that unique. It's special because it causes a memory when performed plus a special video of the two sims kissing.

Sims only get one memory of making out. Rejection also causes a memory.
