I cant figure out how to begin a romantic relationship! Its one of my wishes, and im like best friends with the only two, cute single sims. Please help me…and fast. Another question…can you have children in Sims 3 for iPod Touch?

Okay. To start a romantic relationship, you have to be NOTHING MORE THAN FRIENDS. If your good friends or best friends, you cannot start a romantic relationship. If you’re friends with someone, just keep using things under the flirt option only (with the exception of flirty jokes). From there it will say “budding romance” and then “date” and then “partner”. From there you can propose engagement, and get married.
For the other questions: no, you can’t have babies in the iPod touch/iPhone version.
And you can grow fruits and vegetables once you upgrade your house. The bigger upgrade you have, the more room to plant crops you have.
Hope this helps !

* To start/continue a romantic relationship…

1. tap on “be romantic”
2. do some romantic things (or you can “be funny” and tell a flirty joke)
3. you’ll see “budding relationship” on the bottom, then “date,” then “partner”
4. you can propose and then get married too!

I can’t update my house more than twice. How do I?

Posted by Mitchell Valley on October 4, 2009 at 10:29 PM (CDT)


To grow carrots you have to have the garden from the house update. You go to the Hobby Shop and buy “carrot seed"s. Once you have the carrot seeds you go to the garden on the side of your house and click “plant seeds”. You choose what type of seeds and plant them.
