I'll admit it, I am not understanding what makes one Sim attracted to another at all anymore. Back in the day it used to be things like traits, favorites, jobs and the sheer amount of time they spent together which would endear my Sims to another. Now-a-days, I have no clue what my little digital buggers want or are looking for in a mate.
I'm in Barnacle Bay and every female Sim my Sim meets, he has no interest in (according to NRaas) or if he is attracted (slightly) to them, they go out of their way to avoid him. The only female who came close to becoming anything to him is Odessa Cross, who he found to be gorgeous (8/10) on the Nraas attraction rating but, 1/4 on the attraction gauge! She is his oldest friend but will go out of her way NOT to go home if he is standing anywhere near her house when she gets off of work.
I really don't want to add another Sim to my game, I would like for him to find someone already there but things are to the point I'm going to have to start combing the High Schools to help him find a girlfriend (and hopefully) future wife. I have purposely avoided this not because I am against teen/YA romantic relationships, but because he is employed as a High School Simlish Teacher.
Here's what I'm working with:
Young Adult Male, Artistic, Brave, Green Thumb, Computer Whiz and Bookworm. Skilled in charisma, painting, athletics, cooking, gardening, writing & logic. His sexual orientation is straight (-1000 for males/ 100 for females). Oh, his LTW is Professional Author.
Does anyone have any ideas what type of Sim woman may peek his interest?
