With Seasons, going on a date is a frequent want that rolls on Spring.
A date and an outing are two similar scenarios, but Sims cannot be on a date and an outing at the same time. Like other romantic interactions, asking Sim on a date will trigger romantic interest, jealousy, and can only be done by teens and older.
At least in Old Town, the player can also end the date by having the controllable Sim say goodbye.
Players would often use this as a way of letting Sims go to Old Town by themselves, so that something such as going to sell vegetables or buy pet treats wouldn't have to be a family excursion.
As a date begins, the timer immediately appears with the initial time of 3 Sim hours.
The time increases every time the score reaches a higher threshold on the date meter.
Otherwise, the Sim's date will be stood up and will be furious.
