Everyone knows that friendships can and do enrich our lives. And I mean in all aspects, even financially. Because, did you know that being a friend is now a legit – and lucrative – side hustle? I’m serious.
There are a lot of websites that allow you to earn real money just by befriending other people. And by friend, I mean a platonic friend. No flirting, no dating, nothing sexual. Just good, old, regular friendship.
Anyway, the main point of these websites is to connect people seeking companionship with other people willing to provide just that. Their rules differ from another. Some websites allow real-life meet-ups, some only limit you to being an online friend. You could do phone calls, text messages, chat, and much more with your clients.
And the pay differs from website to website – you can make anywhere from $15 to $50 per hour, and even up to $200 per hour! So, yeah, making $100 a day just by being a friend to other people is entirely doable. Friendship really does pay!
So, if this is something that piques your curiosity, here’s a list of some of the most popular websites that pay you to become a friend. Check out each one, learn their respective rules and requirements, and pick where you’d want to belong.
