The Sims series springs eternal, especially with the new Fitness Stuff Pack released on June 20 for the Sims 4. If you're taking a break from vampires and cheat codes, you might be completing quests in the mobile version of the game, Sims Freeplay. Quests in Freeplay can be a little involved, but are essential for unlocking new items and new activities.

If you're having trouble with "Love Is in the Air," we're here to help by walking you through the steps it requires.

Sims Freeplay guide: How to unlock "Love Is in the Air"

According to The Girl Who Games blog, unlocking "Love Is in the Air" will require you to finish the preceding quests, according to an FAQ at the bottom of the page. You'll also need to be level seven before the quest becomes available as well. Luckily, there are only two quests prior to "Love Is in the Air" — the money-based quests "Bread Winner" and "Money Grows on Trees?" Once you've completed those two quests, you should unlock "Love Is in the Air."
