Get away from your responsibilities knowing that they will be taken care of. Reciprocate by taking care of someone else's responsibilities.
A form of working vacation.
A radical way of meeting new people.
Travel almost for free.
A platform that filters people by various criteria and matches those that are complatible with each other's life circumstances. Both people have to be able/willing to do each other's jobs and take care of each other's daily responsibilities.
The selection process for compatible matches is similar to that for dating apps. If two people select each other they can proceed to have a chat and decide on all the details.
An important aspect of the exchange is taking care of the other person's job. The employer should obviously consent to go along with this.
Before any exchange takes place both people and their families should provide proof that they are who they say they are. IDs, utility bills, video of the home and all family members in it. Various bits of info that the other person can independently verify.
Making people feel welcome
Before the exhcange takes place, every side should provide a welcome video where all the family members and friends who will be hanging out with the person introduce themselves and say a few welcoming words.
When you arrive to the other person's home, people call you by their name. Everyone plays along. They remind you what "you" like to do and when. They help you get it right. You become the other person:)
You get a phone containing the phone numbers of your new family and friends. Your new friends pick you up to hang out. You drive the other person's car. Show up at their job. Your new co-workers all play along.
You are probably wondering what happens to intimate relationships. We don't know:) People probably won't tell us.
