Product: The Sims 4
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Often (50% - 99%)
What is your current game version number? 1.90.375.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? ALL EXPANSIONS. Werewolves, Dream Home Decorator, Realm of Magic, Parenthood, Vampires, Dine Out, Spa Day, Paranormal, Nifty Knitting, Tiny Living, My First Pet, Laundry Day, Spooky, Perfect Patio, and both freebies
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Have a teen sim in a household with other teen sims with High School Years in game
What happens when the bug occurs? Sim with no crush keeps getting moodlets related to a non-existent crush
What do you expect to see? I expect my sim to not have these moodlets when she doesn't have crush
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? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. After the update that came with Highschool Years/After I first downloaded HSY
I have a sim who has no romantic or mess around interests (she's doesn't have men or women checked in either category and she has exploring set to "no") yet she keeps getting moodlets related to some nonexistent crush. I keep checking all of her relationships and she doesn't have a crush sentiment with any of them. I'm just super confused as to why my sim who doesn't have a crush keeps getting crush related moodlets. I even disabled mods to make sure that wasn't the issue and sure enough it still persists
EDIT: I forgot to mention that when you click on the sim there is no option to try to get over crush or think about crush like there is for my other sims with crushes. I included this in my screenshots but didn't mention it in writing.
Edit By Crinrict: Added Tag to Title
Something similar is happening to me! I don't have those same settings, but my sim developed a crush. I had her get over the crush, but keep getting wants in regards to crushing on this sim. I check the sim profile and that crush sentiment is gone. The only time I see that crush anywhere is when my sim has a crush on someone else, I click to try getting over a crush, and that other crush is in the panel too...I'll click that sim, it'll say she's over that crush. And then the wants come again. So, basically, my sim is stuck with this crush and can't get rid of it, despite having gotten over it.
I have the same as Kaseyanne in that my Sim has got over the Crush but still gets related moodlets and Wants related to them
As for the OP, I find that the other Sim having a Crush on you gives you the same moodlets too
Can anyone experiencing this issue possibly share a save file where you've seen it occur? Thanks so much!

I have a similar but not exactly the same issue.
In 2 saves with 2 different sims so far, the sim has had a crush and tried to get over it.
The blue popup message comes saying that the sim will "no longer be plagued with thoughts of" the sim they had a crush on.
The Crush sentiment disappears from the profile of the sim they had a crush on.
However, they still get crush-related moodlets and Wants for that sim.
What's different for me is that when they try again to get over that same crush, the same sim still appears in the panel, despite the fact that the sentiment is gone.
Trying multiple times to get over the crush always gives the successful blue popup message and the sentiment remains gone, but the moodlets and Wants never disappear.
In one of these two saves, the sim continued to have crush-related moodlets and Wants long after her crush grew up, died of old age and became a ghost.
Crushes never seem to go away despite my Sims best efforts. Every time a new crush comes up the "Get over Crush" panel still shows all the previous crushes. It says they will no longer plague her, but they will haunt her for life.
