I confess Uyli Al Fassi was conceived as a legacy spare so she could keep the family restaurant while I play with her twin elder brothers.
And when she spun the Unflirty trait as she aged up to Adult, I knew she would be near impossible to play.
But when I got bored with the twins, I decided to try out the detective career on a whim. She’s Active and Unflirty! That’s a great combo for police work, right?
She’s got a bunch of interesting colleagues.
Life for Uyli revolved around her police work. Whims to work out, whims to get promoted, whims to be friendly with her buddies in blue.
Lots of whims to “Ask About Day” … but not a single romantic intention.
Her geeky casanova brother’s love life did intrude the police station.
And at one of their burger bar meet ups, this happened.
This wasn’t my doing – Heroe wasn’t even in the active household when he tried to do this! I blame this mod (and love it for making things interesting).
I didn’t get screenshots of it, but Uyli was making the most judgemental faces. I’m pretty sure this incident has cemented her perception that love is NOT for her.
I had resigned myself to the fact that Uyli’s not going to pass on her fantastic genes.
For many Sim days Uyli did what she always did.
Everything was chugging along. At yet another Buddies in Blue’s gathering, I caught a tiny heart in Uyli’s action queue.
I QUICKLY PAUSED THE GAME.
Savalani has autonomously decided to kiss her and Uyli didn’t pull away.
I love and hate this mod.
I decided to test out if it’s was just a thing of that moment and got Uyli to feebly asking him on a date.
My second ever unflirty Sim has hooked up with someone. My first was Raj Rasoya and he died alone and single.
I realised what worked was the hours and hours of time spent together both at work and off work. Love crept into Uyli’s life and both she and I didn’t notice.
There was no romantic restaurants or nightclub chaos. Just BFFS -> BOOM! Married.
She’s gonna have such cute children.
