Do, kind of, have a partner (7)
I believe the answer is:
Here is my best explanation:
'partner' is the definition.
('consort' can be a synonym of 'partner')
'do kind' is the wordplay.
'do' becomes 'con'.
'kind' becomes 'sort' ('sort' can be a synonym of 'kind'**).
'of have a' is the link.
I am not very happy about this link. Some or all of it may belong to another bit of the clue.
(Other definitions for consort that I've seen before include "companion", "Monarch's husband", "Associate", "Prince Albert?", "Companion; ship sailing with another", "Small group; spouse", "Husband or wife of a monarch", "Partner", "Group playing music" and "Hang out with".)
