A notable difference between teenagers and children is that teenagers able to pursue romantic relationships. They can perform all romantic interactions, but cannot WooHoo or get married; teens in The Sims 4, however, can "Mess Around" and exchange promise rings. Teens may want to have their first kiss or go steady with another Sim. Teens can only date other teens, and cannot perform romantic interactions with a Sim in any other life stage. In The Sims 2, the romantic bond between two teens will be broken if one teen ages up and the other does not. In The Sims 3, a teenaged lover who ages up will remain listed as their boyfriend/girlfriend, but cannot perform romantic interactions until the other Sim ages up as well.
Teens can live on their own without the aid of older Sims in the house. They cannot be taken away by the social worker, and can even run away from home if their relationships with the rest of the family drops too low. In The Sims 3: World Adventures, teens can travel abroad on their own. Teens in The Sims 3, however, have a curfew, and may be arrested and brought home by the police if they are caught violating it. Teens in The Sims 2 may sneak out of the house at night, but will be brought home by the police if they are caught.
