I just prefer making female sims over male sims since male sims always look feminine no matter how much body hair they have. :I
But sometimes I make a married couple or an engaged couple, I don't want my sims reproducing with EA sims. Blech.
I almost never make same sex couples, not because I'm against it but just because I enjoy playing with male/female couples more. :3
I also found that when playing custom worlds, I like populating them out of my library collection, and use Twallan's SP to speed things along. Lately, I've been eliminating the population in EA worlds, and repopulating them as well. Much better looking sims walking around that way.
Edit: Oh yus and I love Master Controller So useful~
So lately I start with two sims and a pet. That seems to be enough to make things start out harder.

Currently the hood has 1 woman left from generation 1, the rest are generation 2 and 3. When my Sims moved hoods a month or so back, I bough 4 new households into the hood, Mortimer and Bella Goth, Bella's mother and brother and Agnes. I only wanted Mortimer, Bella and Agnes, but then felt bad for leaving the rest behind, so I bought them as well.
Then something fun happened, a friend was able to restore the sims from my original hood, so I got another 7 household into my town all decendants of the first Sim I created when TS3 came out.
In my hood I have one household that is filled with interesting looking Sims I have stolen from other hoods, sometimes some of them will become playable. Like Genevieve Colby and her husband from hidden spring, I thought the husband looked very interesting so he and his wife became playable and he currently owns the bar in my hood.
Mary Baker from Twinbrooks became playable when she accepted to take over the retirement home my random legacy heir was running very badly. One of the evil step sisters and their mother, from Hidden Springs, will became playable in the next round because one of my playable guys knocked her up, and the mother comes with the package so her daughter wouldn't grow older than she is. Chase Bayless became playable when she first became Komei Tellerman's live in house-keeper, now Komei is dead, and his son didn't need her services so she moved out and became her own household. Also I have another sim who became playable by becoming a live in housekeeper.
I also have one household in my hood where I will put a few of these unplayable townies and play them. Some I'll play longer, some a shorter while. This is because I don't like my playable Sims marrying Sims who are on their first day of adulthood with no skills. This way they get a bit of life experience before I ship them back to the un-playable household. Currently in this house lives Kimiko Nakamuro and Jules O'Makey. I usually just play Kimiko. If Kimiko ever moves in with Komei's son I'll have some other townie move into this house on her behalf. Jules on the other hand is so boring I'll just let her live in this house until she become an elder and then ship her to the retirement home and then somebody else can move in on her behalf.
I don't create new Sims in CAS. If I get new households into my hood it's usually because somebody had a kid and the kid is now grown and move out. I currently have 21 households in the hood. One of my ROS events is that a new family moves into the hood, and I already have those families in my bin, but I'm not adding any more Sims into the mix until the household count is less.

TS2 and TS3: Where adult sims potty train their toddlers.
TS4: Where adult sims make Angry Poops.
Which game is made for the juvenile minded?

If I'm playing an EA world I like my sims to be involved with some of the premades (especially Bella and Mortimer!), or if I've playing a custom world I use Twallan's SP to populate it and my sims find someone to love from the new inhabitants :-)

I always found it so much fun to find a game generated sim to marry in TS2. Now that that "mystery" is no longer there as you see them around town I still think it's funny to marry some weird sim and do him/her up. Can't have too much perfection!
Inevitably, though, I find the families I stick with are the ones that aren't the 'normal' sort. They're just more interesting.
And, I am not sure why, but I seem to wind up playing gay couples more than any other. I also use Twallan's mods to help with same sex pregnancy and clothes' meshes from MTS.

NO CC! THE VERY THOUGHT...
But I often create just one woman, but I usually don't intend her to mate.
