Update 26th December 2020:
After seeing people having issues with my mod I decided to make a more reliable version of it. It's a script mod which selects all flirt interactions and changes the tests for autonomous usage.

Mod description:
This mod changes the conditions for autonomous flirting. Your sims need to be in a romantic relationship or romantic conversation to flirt. It's a script mod and doesn't need to be updated for every patch.

Your sims can still flirt autonomously if they fulfill any of the requirements listed here:
  • when they are in a suggestive, amorous or steamy conversation.
  • with their wife/husband, fiancee/fiance, girlfriend/boyfriend.
  • when they have a romantic relationship (pink bar) which is at least 10.

Please note:
  • Your single sims won't flirt until you tell them to.
  • This mod can't prevent the game from generating random relationships when you switch households.
  • This mod won't affect enchanting introductions. You'll need No Autonomous Rude/Flirty/Enchanting Introductions by egureh to prevent this.
  • This mod can't prevent random NPC romances. You'll need No Random NPC Romance by lazarusinashes to prevent this.
  • This mod can't affect autonomy pushes for NPCs like the Free Love NAP. You need additional mods to prevent this.
  • This mod won't affect the „Vampiric Charm“ or club rules.

Possible conflicts:
  • Don't use this mod with other script mods which change autonomous usage of romantic social interactions. You could get unpredictable results.
  • If you use it with tuning mods which change autonomous usage of romantic social interactions, these mods could be ignored.
  • You can use custom romantic social interactions, these will be covered as long as the creator tagged them with Social_Flirty. But sims might use these interactions differently than the creator intended.
  • Mods to unlock interactions should be fine.

Known issues:
If EA adds new romantic situations that should not to be tested for faithfulness, my mod will probably block unfaithful behavior from it.

Installation:
Extract the mod from the .zip file and place the .ts4script and the .package file together in your Mods folder. Don't place it more than one subfolder deep. Script mods have to be activated in your game or it won't work.

Thanks for this! I like when my couples flirt together autonomously too, but I was sick and tired of them becoming sad because one of them would go and flirt with some random Sim!

So, what you're saying is that it CAN be used, with MC Command Center, and both will still work properly?

Thank you for the mod! It is very much needed and I was looking for a mod just like this one.

One question how will this mod effect sims in ex lover relationships? Will sims still autonomously flirt with ex girlfriends/boyfriends/wife/husband even if both relationship bars are in the red?

Thank you for a very much needed mod . I haven't been in my game in ages because last time I opened it, Mortimer was just flirting with everyone and it annoyed me so much I haven't gone near it since.

Good question! I didn’t think about this. My sims don’t have ex lovers.
I’ve tested this now and yes, they can flirt autonomously with hated ex lovers because they had first kiss and woohoo. I’ve made another version of the mod which excludes this possibility. Use version 2.1 if you don’t want your sims to flirt with their hated ex lovers.

For what I've see, they would not flirt with broken up or divorced at all. Those relbits are commented so never happens .
Just a note: The can now flirt on any mood.

Thank you! Before this mod, I was really surprised when my sim attempted to flirt with his much hated ex girlfriend after a fist fight with her. In front of his current live in girlfriend too and it just aggravated all three sims. He wasn't even in a flirty mood. He was in the confident mood because he won the fight. It just made no sense considering his relationship was -100 on both bars with his ex and +100 on both bars with his current girlfriend/soulmate. He never flirted autonomously with another sim just only with his current girlfriend. He really shocked me.

I thought it would be like in the Sims 3 where if your sim was officially disliked by another sim, the autonomous flirting with said sim was pretty much shut down till the relationship went down to acquaintance status again. Of course those commands were still available to the player but I didn't have to count on my sims flirting autonomously with their hated ex.

EDIT: In the download section its says 2.1 your sims have to be in a relationship to flirt (first kiss or woohoo is not enough). Does this mean sims have to be in a official boyfriend/girlfriend/wife/ husband relationship or conversation before they can autonomously flirt or do they just have to have a positive romantic bar of 10 to be autonomous flirty with another sim?

I really hoped EA would have done something against it, but even if they did, it doesn’t work. I’ve tested this in my game. I’ve divorced a couple and made them hate each other. Then I made them flirty to encourage their desire to flirt and locked them together in a room. It didn’t last long and then she tried to seduce him. He laughed about her, but she tried. And after reading Genesiz experience I know it’s not just my game.

They always could flirt in any mood but there was a condition in the XML for flirty mood which did not test any relationship at all. I simply removed this. But most of the time they want to do other things when they are not flirty.

That’s like EA coded flirting in the Sims 4. I was shocked too as I saw the coding. They even especially allowed to flirt with ex lovers but I took this out in version 2.0. I just didn’t think about the first kiss/woohoo thing which still has allowed hated ex lovers.

If you experience any issues like this with my mod, please let me know. I’ll try to fix it.

You’ll need version 2.1. Your sims will flirt autonomously, if your sims match any of the conditions I wrote in the thread except for first kiss/woohoo. Romantic bar of 10 will be enough. It’s difficult for me to tell in few words what I mean, because English is not my native language. Sorry for confusing you.

So far so good! My sims have only been flirting with their partners or potential partners that I have picked for them. Thanks a lot, I appreciate it!

Thanks, I am glad you figured it out. I hate it when my couples walk around in the 'hood, and something triggers their fancy to make them flirty with other random sims. I want them to be faithful too!

Thank you so much! I always hated it when my sims would randomly flirt with a stranger on the streets, especially when their partner is in front of them!

This is brilliant! They should have programmed checks like these into the game. I can't believe some of the scenarios where I've seen inappropriate sims flirting. Exes and in-laws particularly. I had a sim flirt with his daughter-in-law (they had no romance bar at all!) in front of his son at a family get together. Ugh, lol!

So if I may ask is there a good mod to take away the Random relationships when switching households? This is why I stopped playing Sims 4, I wasn't allowed to have faithful families.

There is a mod for this problem here. I’m using this myself and it seems still to be working. I can’t guarantee that there are no problems but I had no problems until now.

Thank you, I downloaded it. I'll give it a try but right now downloading the stuff packs and such I missed since I hadn't played this game since get together. I still wish they'd rethink their whole entire flirt/relationship system because I don't totally want to remove it yet I don't want my happily married sims being unfaithful. I want the sims I want to be unfaithful to be unfaithful. I'd say it's the 2nd thing I hate most about The Sims 4 the first being not enough space by not allowing us to create our own neighborhoods. If these things were exactly like they were for Sims 2 there would be no problem with me.
