And of course, almost nobody wants to watch their simself die of old age. You need to have a sim that it doesn't feel like a personal insult when they get snubbed by other sims - or instead of cringing in terror when you see their wives cheating on them, you're snickering in glee.
SO -- instead of making a simself, or a sim based on your crush or someone you admire, base a sim on someone you really dislike. My first very successful TS3 guy was based off of someone I knew from playing DnD and one of the most annoying guys I ever met. Basically, he was like the comic book guy in the Simpsons, but had a less charming personality. I made a sim that looked like him the best I could and then I gave him the 5 traits that really annoyed me the most about him. I LOVED watching him suffer and if something went wrong, it made me laugh, and I was never tempted to fix things or make it easier for him.
