Sims can’t become friends


This specific bug was fixed but there still reports of Sims being stuck at acquaintance. Please click Me Too on this post Sims who have been best friends/enemies remain as acquaintances and post if you have more info. I’m not sure if the solutions below still work for the current problem.


  • My Sims are not friends although their relationship is past 50%. The relationship is shown as impartial.
  • My Sims can’t become best friends.


This issue occurs since Patch 1.9.83

Relationships that are on level impartial when you travel somewhere (loading screens) get stuck on that level and you can’t become friends with those Sims.

At the moment, it’s unclear of the best friend issue has the same cause.


The only workaround to this is to destroy the relationship and start over. You need to become friends with the Sim before traveling somewhere or reloading the game or it will become stuck again.

Options to destroy the relationship

There are several ways to destroy relatsionships.

  • Romantic relationships seem to override the bug. So start flirting and once you have the pink bar, you can start becoming friends again.
  • Become enemies with the Sim (unconfirmed). There needs to be a red bar. After that you can start making friends with the Sim again.
  • Offenbar überschreibt eine romantische Beziehung den Bug. Fange also an zu flirten, bis sich der Status ändert, dann versuche es erneut mit der Freundschaft.
  • Mach dir den Sim zu Feind und dann versuche es erneut (nicht bestätigt, ob es wirklich funktioniert). Die Beziehung muss min. ein bisschen rot sein.
