@RockStar33:  Yes the other half of your soul, but you’re still a whole person. I feel complete with Fiance, it would be a lot harder in life without him. But I am still a human being in my own right, and I would still exist if he wasn’t around. But my soul would not be complete that’s true.

Although I see soulmate as more of the perfect match for you, all the way down to your soul, rather than being two halves, you are still two separate people, but the world is complete, everything is better when you have your soulmate.

@Jacqui90:  that makes no sense!   And this is exactly what I’m talking about!

 Your soul is who you are!  If you need someone to complete you, then you are saying without them you are not whole.   No one should ever think that Without a partner or soulmate they are not a whole person.   It’s unhealthy.

@Jacqui90:  I agree with all of this.

@RockStar33:  I don’t think you can choose to love someone. Yes, if you are forced to be with someone you can learn to respect them and maybe eventually love them like you would a friend or someone else close to you. But I don’t think that will ever equate to finding your soul mate, the one who you’ve loved always. There is also nothing like falling in love with someone and having the passion that comes with that … I personally don’t think you can choose to feel that with just anyone. 

However, I do think you can love other people that aren’t you soul mate but being with those other people will never be completely right.

@Jacqui90:  no offense, but what you are saying makes you sound needy and dependant.

@RockStar33:  So for believing in soulmates I am automatically needy and dependent? Yes I am dependent on Fiance for a lot, I do need him in my life, but I am still a whole person. My soul and his soul are connected in a way that is unexplainable.

@RockStar33: To me, a soul mate is the soul that you have been with always. The soul you meet over and over in each life you live and fall inlove with each and every time. I think that when it is said that your soul mate is your other half, it is just a figure of speech. I don’t think it is meant to be taken literally and instead means that you complete each with qualities the other person may not have and when you are together, you are the strongest you can be.

I totally believe in soulmates!  I met my fiancé in 96, that day I felt so connected with him, I knew I’d marry him.  We broke up 4 yrs later, married other people & I had resolved that I wasn’t supposed to actuallyarey my soulmate.  However, 14 years after our first meeting we reconnected on FB of all places!  And now we’re gettong married, something I thought I’d never do again.  I was made to love him.  I was made to be his helpmate.  I’m happier now than i could ever imagine and I look forward to our life together.

@RockStar33:  It’s also very unhealthy to be completely alone and every one needs someone at least part of the time. Whether that be family or friends. How is having a soul mate any different than that except but a deeper connection?

@mylittleviolett:  I believe the opposite.   I believe it’s a choice.   Everyone has love in them but you choose who to share that love with

@RockStar33:  I understand your point of view and I’m not saying that you can’t share your love with anyone you’d like to. I just think that romantic love and the true passion that comes with it is on a different level than the love that’s grown from time and patience or love that is shared every day with those around you.

I am one of the “didn’t believe in soulmates until I met _______” people. I always scoffed at the idea of a soulmate, citing age old billions of people on earth who could potentially fit the bill. However… I am now one of those annoying girls who has found “the one.” 

I am not a particularly religious individual, though I do believe Mother Mary has protected me over the years. My immigrant mother (lol) was raised Catholic, & when I turned 18, she passed down her Mary pendant, which was blessed by Pope John Paul II years ago when she still lived back in “the Old Country.” I have worn it every day since, & it was around my neck both times I was in a serious car accident. I truly believe she guides me each day!

So, no, I am not entirely sure my definition of soulmate matches any other Bees’, particularly those who believe God himself reunited them; but personally, I have no doubt I have met the person I was meant to be with. I truly feel there is no one else who could make me as happy as he does, understand me so deeply in so many ways, or whose personality could complement mine as well as his does. I feel indescribably lucky each day waking up knowing we have committed the rest of our lives to one another. And I do thank Mary daily for leading us to one another!
