@ Kevin - We've all been there. I'm definitely known to shed a few tears when favorite sims die. What's almost as bad is being afraid to let favorite sims die because you know you'll be an emotional wreck when they do. I still refuse to let Malcolm Landgraab kick the bucket...probably why I'll never be able to finish my dynasty. :P

You also know you play too much Sims when you are wandering through the electronics section of Walmart and your significant other purposely steers you away when you stop at the Sims section. Darn you, Mr. Draconis. :P

I refuse to let certain Sims die. Seriously. I have two immortal sims that I love, both of them my Evil little bundles of darkness. William has lived for almost ten generations, methinks.

Don't worry Kevin, we all miss dead sims. ;)
It can be very sad, and in some cases traumatizing.

Oh I know right. Glad I'm not the only one feeling this way! ;D
I don't think I'll ever make my sims immortal, though.. It just seemed.. weird? xD

I also refuse to let certain ones die. First time, I merged Aggie into my home to give her an elixir, but now I just throw them at my special babies. I think I've played alot of sims (I don't like to say I've played too much because there is never too much!) when I go through my sims friends every night just make sure my faves haven't turned old!  ;D

You have a friend with the nickname catfish and you keep on trying to feed him cheese in order to use him to attract a female acquaintance called Angel ... and they don't get it...

Hahaha I laughed out loud. To me, that signals that your friends don't play Sims enough! Good thing we all have each other for those times when our friends just don't understand.

Been there! I have a shelf on my desk that's full of different computer games. About half of it is sims boxes.

You know you've played too much Sims when.. You know you will purposely eat watermelon when your pregnant. I promise if and when I have a baby I am going to be on a diet of watermelons. I want a girl! And if you want a guy, eat apples!
I love this forum and just want to say thank you to everyone! :) Have a great rest of your day!

When you're watching music videos with your little sister and her first statement is:
"Can you make a Sim that looks like Taeyeon? Ooooh; How about Yoona?"
And your response is
"Hmm... I can try.. I think Chuckles has a pattern that looks like that.. and maybe I'll be able to use the dresses from Showtime now.."  ;D

You know you've played too much Sims when you go to a furnishing store, see a bookshelf you like and instead of thinking "I have to get it!" you only think "why, WHY hasn't EA design a bookshelf like that yet!? It would look so cool on my new house!"

I do that all the time, but with other things:clothes, my bedroom, the new kitchen we're getting next year. I even did some homework using the Sims once!

I do this all the time. I take stock of my motives and then prioritise them as I would a Sim. Sometimes I even queue up the actions in my brain. It helps. And my dad was sceptical when I said Sims helps my time management! :P Though I think that was because I spend so much time playing the game. I think I have the Childish trait because my Fun meter seems to drop fastest.

When you feel like it's the weekend, because your sims just finished work for the week :D Then you realise it's actually Monday.

Haha!  I'm like this with the weather.  After playing Sims 3 for a long time, I go outside and wonder why it's not snowing.  Even though I live in Texas.
