There was a board on this the other day:
I absolutely believe in soul mates. There is nothing wrong with believing that – and there is nothing wrong with not believing it.
My SO and I strongly believe we’re soul mates, because quite honestly it was the only thing to describe what happened to us when we met. It was exactly what you’re told – that you ‘fall in love at first sight’ that it’s ‘just different’ and you ‘just know’. Completely true. This has been the most rewarding relationship I’ve ever been in – it’s the most connected I’ve ever been.
Does that mean it doesn’t come without hard work – hell no! We’re both still individuals that are going to change. But our belief is that we found each other for a reason and that we’re meant to spend our lives together.
Soul mates by definition of the word means a connection on a deeper level – souls connecting – not just our body and mind. You get each other on a deeper level.
I believe that I have ‘soul mates’ for friends too – you’re kindred spirits.
But there is a deeper level of soul mate – someone that is your soul mate in life – that connects with you on all levels of your being – and this person is ‘the one’.
You have to work at anything to keep it – and if you lose touch with yourself, and who you are, and who you are together… well of course you risk losing what you have.
If your soul mate died, it doesnt mean you won’t ever find love again…but I believe that ‘one’ will be the greatest love of your life, and you won’t find that ever again.
Absolutely not. I think I could be just as happy with another person but I just happened to find DH first.
I don’t believe in soul mates (you think I would). I don’t call my Fiance my soulmate. My sister called him my soul mate once and I rolled my eyes and surprised myself. I believe there are many people who could be wonderful for eachother. I believe my Fiance is the Great Love of my Life. Does that make sense? I feel like the word (soulmate) gets tossed around a lot.
My Fiance is my Partner. He is my Mate. My Man. My King. My Confidant and Companion.
That’s so funny because I believe in Fate, Destiny and Magic. I belueve Fiance was a gift sent to me by the Universe. He is definitely the Ying to my Yang. I have never felt so entirely “ME” before him. But Soulmate…..that is such an impossibly tall order
I totally agree with
I think people are confused about the definition of soulmate and where the idea actually came from.
doesnt mean I don’t believe in a deep romantic love, I just would never use the word soulmate.
I don’t believe in soulmates – mainly because they are so hard to define and everyone’s definition would be slightly different. I do believe though that my DH and I are meant to be together – otherwise, we wouldn’t be!
I absolutely do not believe in “soulmates” in any sense of the word. For myself, I firmly believe that if I had been born in another part of the world, I would have met someone, fallen in love and had a good family and a good life. I love my DH dearly, and I choose no one over him, and we have been together many years, but that doesn’t mean that if circumstances had been such that I had never met him that I would not have had a loving relationship and a fulfilling life.
And it is ironic that so many people seem to believe in “soulmates”, yet about half of all marriages end in divorce. Either people knew full well that they were not marrying the person they were “meant” to be with, or they were wrong.
I believe that many people have connections to other people based on immediate physical attraction, similar life views, personality characteristics, etc. Those things are often imprinted by one’s upbringing before most of us can remember. It is these things that make us feel like we can trust some people and not others, and these are the things that make us more likely to get along with one kind of person than another. But there is nothing supernatural about any of that, IMO.
