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.

The real bad part about this game is that sims are essentially devoid of integrity and does not know how to turn down anything.

"Flirt with me? Okay, even though I have a loving wife which I endear, I will totally make out with you!"
"Chat with me? Okay, even though I'm on a super special date with my S/O right now, lets talk!!!!!1"

The emotion system of The Sims 4 is honestly really weak and undertuned; you barely notice any sims acting different/unique even if you shove the most 'standing out' personality traits into them (why is an evil guy casually talking to a good person? Why isn't anyone arguing in this game? Where did the hilarious drama from The Sims 2 go?)

Why is every sim in this game lifeless indistinguishable chat-talking bots?

I like what you did there to still allow flirting with romantically involved Sims. It's a smart way to make it work. Thanks!

Hello! First of all, thanks for this mod, it is much needed!

I have a question though, since it is not specified in the description. To install the mod, do i have to place the zip file in the Mods folder, or do i have to unpack it?
I ask because i've used this mod for quite some time now, and it always worked properly, but today, while in flirty mood, my sim tried to flirt with his best friend (during that Sakura Festival or whats-its-name), and i barely got the time to cancel the interaction (thank god lol), so maybe i'm thinking i didn't install it right.

I would really appreciate some advice, and thanks so much in advance!

You’re welcome.

You have to unpack the mod to install it.

Thanks for the information. I think the problem is the romantic festival. My sims went there only once. I didn’t test this situation further, because everything seemed to be okay. I guess, I was just lucky.

EA didn’t change anything in the XML I change, but now I looked at the romantic interactions themselves. It seems that EA allows everyone to flirt/kiss/woohoo with random sims, who has a buff from the festival. Only sims with the unflirty trait can’t do it.

My mod should still be working, but not at the romantic festival and something called ApartmentNeighbor_visitor_Hangout_FlirtyShower. (I don’t play with apartments.)

I really don’t know why EA is thinking our sims can’t be faithful. I’m working on a solution.

OMG this is terrible news!
Thankfully, my Sims have all been faithful for now, i have found no evidence of them been flirting/kissing/woohooing around the Festival.
Lets hope it will remain like this.. I surely do hope you will find a solution, so good luck!

Anyway, thank you for your quick reply! And again, thanks for the mod, is great!

This bug is not caused by my mod. I’ve tested this and I have this problem with and without my mod. It helps to pause and to unpause the game. I think it is one of EA’s lag issues. You can try to google, there are many posts about this problem.

Question: If a sim is in a flirty mood, will this stop the flirty idle animations with everybody and weird flirty voice? I came looking for a mod that makes it so sims can only use those animations and flirty voice when with a lover, because it is strange when my sim talks in such a flirty manner to their offspring and all those around them that are notably *not* her husband.

I read the description but I couldn't find anything that said whether or not the mod does this.

My mod can’t take the flirty voice and idle animations away. I agree, it’s strange that they talk to everybody like this, but I don’t know how to change this or if this is possible.

My mod can’t control the new „Vampiric Charm“. As far as I know there are no restrictions to romantic interactions, when this power is activated. Do you use the „Vampiric Charm“?

Default Much Appreciated
I downloaded this mod and the No Autonomous Flirty or Exchanging Introduction sometime ago and I'm so overjoyed, thanks so much for this mod! I was so tired of always worrying about my Sims who has a partner flirting with others. This has made my gameplay worry free and very pleasing.
As of July 18th patch this mod still works.
