Everdale Prosperity Round 15 Hartford 3 Family  
 Previously on the Hartford 3s, Carson became an adult, got a job in the education field, and moved out. Here's his new house.

Carson Hartford, family sim, LTW: become education minister, 10 neat, 2 shy, 10 active, 3 serious, 3 grouchy, OTH: sports

Carson's new home. He blew most of his money on it, so he's a little house poor.

Carson's first meal in his new home. The welcome wagon will be disappointed.

Carson is still lacking a first kiss! We'll fix that.

He doesn't have a lot of money, but he puts a lot on this date. Unfortunately, there's really no spark.

He tries again.

Ohhhhh...this explains why all his dates are mediocre!!!

Carson chooses popularity for secondary. It doesn't really suit him, but he needs to make a lot more friends for work, so it'll do.

Carson goes to the park with one of his new friends/former dates and looks around. He spies Kennedy Cox.

You see why Carson shouldn't be a popularity sim.

Carson starts thinking ahead, but it's okay. Kennedy likes how strong Carson is.

Carson has become friends with Justine Carr. He's excited about her having a baby.

Carson asks Kennedy on a proper date. They have brunch at the diner.

It goes well. Carson gets his first kiss at the end of the date.

Carson decides to go with his new popularity focus and have a party. His biggest fear is having an accident at the party. Really? Is that really a concern at this age?

They eat pizza in the spare bedroom.

They smustle.

It's not a bad party.

There are a few stragglers.

Eventually he gets Kennedy to himself.

They are so adorable!

Question: have you ever had sims where romantic interactions are SO SLOW to be available? I think Carson got his first kiss at the end of the date as a goodbye kiss, since I wasn't able to do that during the date. By the end here I don't think they were able to make out even. Yet clearly, they very much like each other.

But that's it for now. He can figure that out next round.

Maybe the slow romance is due to Carson being shy?
You have a lot of single household now!

I do. They all grew up about the same time. Next round is baby-palooza.

And maybe it is the shy thing. I'll have to pay more attention to my shy sims.

The shy thing seems to make sense. I agree, Carson and Kennedy are cute :)

Awwwww, I love the gays! I don't have a gay couple in my hood yet, just my two gal couples. I need to start using ACR to randomize my kids' sexual preferences to get more diversity. I find it amusing that Carson was wearing an inadvertently appropriate shirt for his sexual orientation.

Ya know, when I was shopping for him originally, that sweater just called to him. I didn't even know.
