[NEEDS INPUT] "Boyfriend/Girlfriend" objective doesn't activate when promised

[ Edited ]
★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? 1.47.49.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? 1. Create two teens with no romantic or family relationships having any aspirations except "Serial romantic" or "Soulmate". 2. Improve relationships to be friendly at least 40% and romantic at least 80%. 3. Use romantic interaction to become boyfriend/girlfriend. 4. Use romantic interaction "Exchange Promise Rings". 5. Switch any or both teens to have "Serial Romantic" or "Soulmate" aspiration.
What happens when the bug occurs? "Have a Boyfriend or Girlfriend" objective doesn't activate when switching to "Serial Romantic" or "Soulmate" aspiration while sim has only one partner that he/she exchanged promise rings with and no other girlfriends/boyfriends.
What do you expect to see? "Have a Boyfriend or Girlfriend" objective should activate after switching to "Serial Romantic" or "Soulmate" aspiration.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

It is impossible to progress "Serial Romantic" or "Soulmate" aspiration when it is selected while sim is in "promised" romantic relationship with his/her only partner. This happens because "Have Boyfriend or Girlfriend" aspiration objective doesn't get activated at that romantic relationship level.

 

There are ways out of this situation:

 

  • "Become Just Friends" and restart romantic relationship anew.
  • Get another boyfriend/girlfriend.
  • "Propose" after becoming adults.

It would be great if "Have Boyfriend or Girlfriend" aspiration objective would activate when "promised" same way as it does when proposed or already married.

Hi @AlphaTested

 

I'm a bit unsure if this is a bug but first I need to make sure I understand this correctly.

 

You switch aspirations and the relationship you already have doesn't count ?

 

Does the issue only occur if they were promised before or also if they are both adults and already have a BF/GF and you switch aspirations ?

Yes, you understood it correctly. I believe that this issue is not such a big deal since such situation is quite rare, but it is just illogical since goal is acieved if you switch aspiration while proposed or married.

Added as needs input to get some more opinions

This has been probably in the game since the beginning and never been reported so far (afair)

The "Promised" state does not seem to register as a romantic relationship properly. I had a teen sim who was "promised" to her boyfriend. After they both aged up, she got whims to ask him to be her bf that were impossible to fulfill as the option did not show up, but she did get the option to propose to him. When asked if single, he would report that he was.

I have the same problem. Since my sims exchange promised rings as a teenarger he can't seem to become boyfriend/girlfriend with his promised now that they are both adult.
