Zoom

Round 16: September 2025

(Eve is 24.)




Lilly has been Eve's roommate for a couple of months now and she's really enjoying it. It's great to have a roommate you get along with and also be out of the dorm where there's always some kind of drama going on.

Living in the dorm was easy in regards of getting a cooked meal in front of her and not having to clean up after herself but on the other hand she also gets the place to herself when Eve is at work so she doesn't mind doing her share of the household chores.

Lilly's also started to see the upside of single life. She really enjoys going out on casual dates with cute guys (and in one occasion a cute girl) without the pressure of it becoming anything serious.

Grades, autumn semester 2025:
- Lilly: education (literature), A+, GPA 4.0

Notes:

  • Title reference: Zoom by Last Dinosaurs.
  • I wanted to do a little update for Lilly because she didn't fit into Zach and Josh's update. Eve's not included because she already got her update earlier this year.
  • I don't think I've ever addressed the fact that Lilly is bi. She was in a relationship with Josh for so long that it never really came up before. Instead of dates I had her go out on a casual group outing with each sim (not at the same time though!) to see if she's interested in any of them without things turning to a romance too early.

  1. I love that idea of doing a group outing before a date since the gameplay almost supercharges romances on dates. I'm stealing this for the future :)

    1. Steal away! ;)

      I was afraid that if I send her on a real date then she'd instantly start rolling all kind of romantic wants and that would kind of ruin my idea of letting her stay single for now. This way she just made new friends, flirted a little and had fun.

      Thanks for your comment. :)

  2. Group outing is a fabulous idea of taking things slow! Like Starr, I'm going to have to use this idea in the future, keep from sims wanting to get married after an afternoon of bowling!

    Lilly is quite pretty, and she looked to be having a good time on her outings. I'm curious if any of the possible dates are going to stick.

    1. "Sims wanting to get married after an afternoon of bowling" made me laugh out loud but it's also true. A date gets super-serious super-fast at least when it comes to the sims' wants.

      This is the first time Lilly's single since she was 13 so I don't think she's that quick to start a new relationship just yet. But then again you never know. There was one sim out of her date companions that she probably liked more than the others but not so much that she'd start something right away.

      Thanks for your comment. :)

  3. Great idea to try the group outings to see who Lilly clicks with! I'll have to try that next time I have a single sim I have no clue what to do with. Can't wait to see if anything develops for Lilly. :)

    1. I figured since Lilly was in a relationship with Josh for 6 years that she wouldn't want to just jump into a new relationship right away. A casual date is really not possible with the in-game date thing because like Maisie said you can end up with a sim wanting to marry someone after going bowling or something.

      I'm interested to see if Lilly ends up in a more serious thing with any of these dates. I haven't really made any plans for her, I'll just let her have some fun for now.

      Thanks for your comment. :)
