Designer Companions: Behavior, Care, and Common Pitfalls

Partners come in many forms. The ethical and trendy choice lately has been to shop local: seeking out partners organically through friends of friends, in the workplace, or maybe even at Target. Perhaps you are more of an arm chair dater and prefer to slide into a virtual inbox of some sort — we don’t recommend this one (read: telling someone they “look really good” after not seeing them since high school). But maybe, you are looking for a more unique and challenging experience. You’re a self-described overachiever and people can’t quite figure out why you’re still single. If this sounds like you, perhaps a designer companion is more your speed. Designer companions do come with a hefty price — both monetary and emotional — and require a special diet and predetermined set of recreational activities, but if you follow the steps we outline below, you’ll have a sumptuous sweetheart lapping up iced matcha latte out of the palm of your hand in no time (just kidding, try this delicate and overpriced bowl from Goop).
