[ Edited ]
★ Guide

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:Sony Playstation 4
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? 1.85.203
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All except bust the dust and MWS
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Receive phone call from friend asking if they should date another sim
What happens when the bug occurs? Sims call to say they are dating but there is no romance bar
What do you expect to see? A romance bar
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? On console - never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. Latest neighbourhood stories patch

Basically I got a call from a sim asking if he should ask a girl out he had a crush on. I said yes. He later called back and said the date went great and now they’re dating. I went into the households to check and these sims are not dating. They have no romance bar. They have no friendship bar, they’ve essentially never even met each other. 
I’ve attached screenshots to show the romance panel being empty and that he is not in any relationships. 
I don’t have screenshots of the original phone call. 

also feel free to change the topic name. I couldn’t think of a better way to word it.  

 

Edit By Crinrict: Added Tag to Title, Added Base Game Version Number

@xjodielaura Sounds similar to this issue: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/Neighborhood-Stories-Sims-don-t-form-relationship-get-engaged/... but looks like you got a different call so I'm not going to merge.

@crinrict I’ll try and screenshot next time I get a similar call but it said something like “I think Becca Clarke is cute! Should I ask her out?” And I said yes and then a day or two later he called back and said “me and Becca had a fantastic time! We’re dating!” And then I got a moodlet that said “Cupid: from hooking up two friends” but like I said when I went into the household they didn’t even know each other

I’m gonna add this in here too cos I feel it’s a similar issue. I’ve had this “trying for baby” phonecall now about 5 or 6 times from this same person (Emily) and I’ve said yes every time but she still isn’t having any babies. She’s one of my played households which I have neighbourhood stories turned off for, so perhaps that’s making it an issue? Though I don’t think that should affect the phone calls

Yeah, ditto, Bella Goth is ringing us once a week to ask if she should have a baby. We always say yes, but she never does.

@xochiquetzl_xkvn I got the same phone call 3 times in a row (on the same day) even when I told her no, she would ring back and ask the question again

@xjodielaura Could you create a separate thread for the baby issue ? It's a different call/issue so it's best if it has it's own thread.
