Take one or more hinge pins out and whack them gently with a hammer to give it just a very slight bend. VERY slight.

There are spring loaded hinges. They can be set to apply a opening or closing force. They are not the best if you want the door to just stay in position but work great if you want the door to stay open or closed.
