She uses her cell phone to arrange a date, using the "Invite Out" command and targeting the Winter Festival.
When Hunter meets Becki for the first time, there is a little mystery involved due to the fact that she lied on her dating profile.
As you can see from the push notification though, Hunter is suitably impressed and interested.
The level of how much you lied on your profile (if you lied at all) can severely negatively impact your starting relationship.
It seems that for attraction, Sims tend to prefer heterosexuality, but it's not a guarantee based on your Sims' hidden sexual preference numbers.
As you can see in the screen shot here, a townie is attracted to Pete simply because she caught him studying a new skill.
Practically speaking, this means Becki can immediately call Hunter up and start chatting the night away.
Nothing is guaranteed; he won't immediately come rusing over even if she invites him over, since their relationship score is still 0.
Becki wants to keep her options open, so she clicks the "Accept Request" button next to Hunter's message but chooses not to delete the other two for now.
Accepting the request simply adds the target as a contact in your Sim's relationship panel.
A new feature of The Sims 3 is attraction, which is available with the latest patch regardless of whether you have Seasons installed.
