Understanding How "Jealousy" Works in Sims 2

A typical Simmy day in SimWorld:

Simary: I GREET YOU.
Simyrtle: I GREET YOU. GREEN PLUS, GREEN PLUS, GREEN SMILEY FACES.
Simary: GREEN PLUS, GREEN PLUS, GREEN SMILEY FACES. ALIEN HEAD.
Simyrtle: ALIEN HEAD. GREEN PLUS, GREEN PLUS.
Simary: GREEN PLUS, GREEN PLUS. BOWL OF GRUEL.
Simyrtle: BOWL OF GRUEL. RED MINUS.
Simary: RED MINUS, huh? Okay. Um, what about TELEVISION?
Simyrtle: TELEVISION, w00t. GREEN PLUS.
Simary: GREEN PLUS. YOUR HUSBAND.
Simyrtle: MY HUSBAND. GREEN PLUS, GREEN...wait, what about my husband?
Simary: GREEN PLUS. What? Oh. TOWN FLOOZY. YOUR HUSBAND.
Simyrtle: MY HUSBAND and TOWN FLOOZY? RED MINUS! RED MINUS! Where?
Simary: Over there. YOUR HUSBAND. TOWN FLOOZY. RED LIPS. GOSSIP, GOSSIP, BADMOUTH.

Simichael (some distance away, harassing a Townie): RED LIPS. You and me, baby.
Simtownie: RED LIPS? RED MINUS. Are you coming on to me? DO NOT WANT. Go away. See, I am waving my hands at you and shaking my head.  RED MINUS, RED MINUS.
Simichael: RED MINUS? Oh come on, Townie. WOOHOO.
Simtownie: WOOHOO, no. RED MINUS! RED MINUS! Cut it out. DO NOT WANT! Now I am slapping you.
Simichael: STARS AROUND HEAD. RED MINUS RED MINUS. Look, I'm a Romance Sim. This is what I do. Now LIKE me, darn it.

Simyrtle (trots over, expresses wrathful vengeance): DAGGER THROUGH HEART, RED MINUS, RED MINUS. I am quite perturbed.

We interrupt this scenario to ask what a logical AI system would do. Would it:

A. Have Simyrtle FURIOUS with Simichael, who initiated the FLIRT?
B. Have Simyrtle SLAP Simtownie, who resisted Simichael's FLIRT?
C. Have Simyrtle get FURIOUS with Simary for GOSSIPing?


The answer of course, in SimWorld, is that the cheated-on Sim attacks the stranger regardless of whether the woo that was pitched was desired or reciprocated.

Say what?

We won't get into the APOLOGIZE interaction oddness, where the offended and wronged Sim is often the one to issue an apology to the Sim who did him wrong.

Simyrtle (after the inevitable fighting and drama): I AM, LIKE, WAI SORRY U CHEATED ON ME AND THEN SLAPPED ME. I APOLOGIZE.

Roffle!

I laughed REALLY hard at this.

I stumbled on you because I noticed you had friended me an was surprised. Doesn't LJ alert you when someone friends you? God, LJ RED MINUS

LJ? RED MINUS RED MINUS!

Heh heh!

Sometimes I get a notice when I am friended or defriended, sometimes not.

But, because it makes them money, I get every single note about who bought who a pixel gift. I could have sworn I disable that feature already!
