For more than a decade, I’ve been actively looking for ways to earn money: online, offline, and unconventional means. Getting paid to date is one of the most unconventional ways to make money that I’ve encountered.
But if you’re single and would love to eat out for free, receive gifts, and socialize in exchange for cash, then this can be a great, if unusual, opportunity for you to earn side cash.
How can you get paid to go on dates?
The idea behind get-paid-to-date companies is that they take away the trouble of finding https://www.hookupdate.net/pl/blendr-recenzja a date for important occasions, such as weddings, family reunions, business dinners, and other such events.
With Bumble and other dating apps, you get to meet people, go on several dates, and try to see if there’s a spark before you’d be able to willingly let them meet the people in your life, like your friends and family.
But what if you’re single, need someone to accompany you next weekend, but you’re not currently dating or have no time to socialize?
The rules of finding a date to hire on these sites or apps vary, but the end goal is the same: to find someone who will accompany you to a particular event or even just a meal with all the details and expectations of the date already laid out for both parties to accept or reject.
- Bidding sites – There are websites that follow a bidding system, where the person “selling” their time goes on a date with the highest bidder.
- Dating apps – Others look similar to a dating app, except some restrictions have been put in place. For example, all users are required to upload their pictures and personal details, but only paying users can send a message to dates-for-hire.
- Classified ads – Some companies take a classified ads approach. Those looking for a date post their budget, details of the date (when, what time, etc.) and wait for dates-for-hire to message their interest.
- Tinder-like – There are even apps that have most of Tinder’s features. The only difference is that the goals of the date-finder are declared upfront, so no one is expecting to find their soulmate or their future spouse.
- Fees: Most of these companies take a percentage of the membership fees to maintain the platform.
- Not illegal: Many of these get-paid-to-date websites clarify that they are NOT an escort service.
- Physical contact not required: You’ll read on all of these platforms that sex or any physical contact is not required during the date. In fact, these websites encourage users to report any user who propositions another person for sex.
What to Expect on the Date
The “date” can be anything from attending concerts to going to the beach, or just sitting down one afternoon in a coffee shop.
There are tourists who look for dates locally, so they can check out hot spots and eat out at local restaurants without having to worry about sightseeing alone or not knowing the local language.
In some cases, the date could mean something more formal, such as business dinners, awards night, galas, and so on.
The good thing about these get-paid-to-date sites is that they require paying members looking for people to hire to indicate as many details about the date as possible. This goes beyond the basics (such as date, time, location, what kind of event).
Listing down all the expectations they have for the date is important since the dates-for-hire rely on these details when deciding to go on that particular date or not.
