9. Professional Cuddler: $30,000-$100,000
As some might be able to guess, Japan was the first country to open a professional cuddle café years back, but the phenomenon has already spread Westward, where most cuddlers work as freelancers. The job itself is pretty self-explanatory: people pay you to cuddle with them for up to an hour.
If you’re a hugger or a particularly warm person, this might be your dream job. You can make a pretty lucrative salary out of spreading good vibes and making other people happy. The profession is spreading so fast that there is even a convention for cuddlers called “Cuddle Con.” The website Cuddlist.com even offers its own cuddling certification process!
