Dating sims up
In game, the teen life stage represents a Sim's life from approximately age 12 or 13 to approximately age 17 or 18.
However, the manuals and help messages for The Sims 2 and The Sims Stories refers to them as "Teen".In The Sims 3, if World Adventures is installed, teens can travel abroad by themselves.Also, Teens cannot be taken away by the Social Worker.Teens are able to Woo Hoo and Try for Baby if the third party mods such as In Teenimater are installed.Teens may begin to take on new responsibilities such as getting a part-time job after school or on the weekends, though they still cannot hold a full-time job.If Generations is installed, teens are offered a chance to defy parental authority by pulling pranks, holding a teenage party while their parents are away, or sneaking out while grounded. Without the use of mods or hacks, teens can perform all romantic interactions except Woo Hoo, Get Married, Propose Marriage, or Try for Baby, though they can still take care of existing babies and toddlers in the same way as older Sims.
However, a teen dating another teen who ages up into a young adult will remain listed as their boyfriend or girlfriend, but romantic interactions between them will be disabled until the other teen has also aged up.
Players can download custom head and body skins which can give a Sim the appearance of being a teen.
The life stage is featured in The Sims Free Play with the Teenagers update, in which pre-teens can grow up to the teen life stage by completing a certain quest.
Teens do not have curfews (and can remain on community lots for as long as they like.), but they can sneak out out of the house at night or take a responsible approach by asking grown-ups for permission to go out, before hitching a ride from a friend.
Teen Sims in the The Sims 3 are taller than children, but shorter than adults and young adults.
This is the only legitimate way for a teenage Sim to have a romantic relationship with an older Sim.
