A flirt is a type of romantic interaction between two Sims. Flirts are often the first romantic interactions that Sims engage in, prior to more intimate interactions like hugging, kissing or WooHooing. Flirting can be an autonomous interaction, or can be initiated by the player. NPCs can often engage in flirting with Sims, regardless of whether the target Sim is single or in a romantic relationship, or whether the target Sim has a preference for the initiating Sim's gender. Flirts, like other romantic interactions, can spark a crush or new romance between Sims who were not previously romantically engaged. Flirtation can spark jealousy if the Sims engaged in the flirting are also in a romantic relationship with other Sims, or if other Sims have romantic feelings for either Sim that are not reciprocated. Sims in romantic relationships that engage in flirting are often considered to be cheating, even if they did not initiate the interaction.

If some flirt options don't appear, it might be because the Sims in question need to have a better relationship.
Check Sim outEdit
Check Sim out is a special type of flirt, introduced in The Sims 2: Nightlife. Unlike other flirt interactions, it does not affect the relationship level between the initiating and target Sim. Rather, a Sim that initiates the interaction will evaluate the target Sim and determine the attraction they feel for the target Sim. Even though the target Sim does not interact with the initiating Sim, it is considered an interaction (albeit one that does not affect the relationship score) and it can affect the target Sim's gender preference; the initiating Sim's gender preference is also affected by the interaction.
