There's something really nice about cuddling. But if you're currently single or with someone who is anti-cuddle, you may be in need of some quality cuddle time. 

The good news is, you can hire someone to come and cuddle you. Everyone seems to have some kind of side hustle these days be it selling something, driving for a car share program, or doing other freelance work. Some people are getting their extra cash by being hired as professional cuddlers to cuddle those in need. 

I don't think I could ever be okay with cuddling with a complete stranger. It justs seems creepy to me. 

But if you have all the cuddles to give and not enough people to cuddle, you can be a professional cuddler through a company called Cuddlist. If you go to the website, it allows you to book a cuddle therapy session and it also gives you a link to be one of their cuddlers. 

How much would you make cuddling strange people for a living or on the side? Cuddlist is offering cuddlers $26,000 a year. Hmmm, I am expecting a baby and they are expensive. Honestly, I could never do this because I would be awkward.
