This mod will slow down the progression of making friends and romance partners. I found it strange how I was able to quickly make best friends and marry other sims in about a sim-day. This will make it a bit harder to make good friends or partners, making friends is now an accomplishment. I did not reduce the loss, so you would probably not want to make sims mad or jealous (unless you want to). Also I increased the gain on "first kiss" "woohoo" and "Go on Date" interactions, especially at early levels in the relationship progression. Putting an incentive to want to get romantically involved. I may tweak changes or interaction gain as needed.

Tweaked Resources:

Overridden Resource: (Vanilla Value Gain)->(New Value Gain)
Rel_Gain_Small: (1.5)->(0.5)
Rel_Gain_Medium: (2.5)->(1.5)
Rel_Gain_Large: (8.0)->(3)
Rel_Gain_VeryLarge: (5.0)->(5)
Loot_LTR_Romance_Large: (4.5)->(0.5)
Loot_LTR_Romance_Huge: (15)->(1)
Loot_LTR_Romance_Small: (1.5)->(.15)
Loot_LTR_Romance_Medium: (3.0)->(.25)
Loot_LTR_Romance_Huge_HighStrength: (20)->(1.5)
Loot_LTR_Romance_Medium_HighStrength: (4)->(1.5)
Loot_LTR_Romance_Medium_LowStrength: (1.5)->(1)
Loot_LTR_Romance_Medium_MediumStrength: (2.0)->(1)
Loot_LTR_Romance_Small_HighStrength: (2.0)->(.75)
Loot_LTR_Romance_Small_MediumStrength: (1.0)->(.75)
Don't let the small new values scare you. Look at the before and after picture to compare the progression bar and Time. You can still make friends and romances in one same day, it just requires more work.

ALSO these interactions have been buffed:Ask on Date, Woohoo, and First kiss to encourage actually trying to be romantic with your partner rather than spamming "flirt" interaction.
They give the above new values but multiple times.(EX: Woohoo gives Huge_HighStrength(1.5) but 3 times for a total of 4.5 with one interaction)

These numbers may not make sense so to sum: Friendship grows about 1/2 progression and Romance at 1/3.
