How to remove Ex-Boyfriend/Girlfriend status?

I had my sim break up with Blair and now she want Jacob to be her boyfriend but the option to date him won't come up and the clean slate lifetime reward didn't clear up her relationship with Blair it still says ex-boyfriend. I kept doing friendly interactions with Blair but the option to "just be friends" hasn't come up.

    I think (it's been a while, so I can't be positive) that "Just be Friends" is under the "Mean" interactions.

    No, it's definitely under the friendly interactions. Not sure if you have to have the "X Sim thinks Y Sim is being sociable/friendly" thingy first though.

    Just Be Friends won't work because they are already broken up. Their relationship will always show as "ex-boyfriend" because that's what they are, but that doesn't affect her ability to date another person. Otherwise, the Heartbreaker lifetime want would be impossible, hehe.

    If she can't date Jacob ... are you sure Jacob is single? Are you doing only romantic actions to get "ask to go steady" to show up?

    You CAN ask to "Just Be Friends" with an ex to change the relationship to friends instead of exes. The option is under the mean interactions when you are still romantically involved with the sim. However, once you become exes it shows up in the friendly interactions, but only after the other sim thinks your sim is being friendly with at least three positive interactions.

    However, like the poster said, ultimately it shouldn't hinder her ability to go steady with another sim.

    Be mean to your ex boyfriend/girlfriend until you can declare them as nemesis then just be friends with them after if you want. Hope it helps.

    Thanks for sharing your workaround Lonelyno1. I'll lock the thread from here seeing as it's a bit of an oldie.
