@RockStar33:  I guess we will just have to disagree. I think that love grows as time passes, you learn more and more about each other and go through wonderful and difficult experiences together. But I don’t think you can cultivate true romantic love solely through time, I believe a special passion for the other person has to be there.

@mylittleviolett:  yea, we will have to disagree.

true love has to be created, it isn’t just there.    

I also don’t think there is such a thing as “true romantic love”.   romance and love are 2 different things, and true love can be created without romance.

@RockStar33: So in your opinion, how is true love created?

@RockStar33:  And you think that there is a such thing as a soul mate but you have to earn it? But didn’t you say you don’t believe in soul mates? I’m confused.

If an elderly couple said they were soulmates, then fine…… They’ve earned it by being together for so long and building their relationship.” 

I don’t think that is how it works.

@mylittleviolett:  no, I never said I believed in a soulmate.  Not once.   i said an elderly couple is fine to use that term because they’ve earned it by being together for so long and creating a lasting love …..true love.     to me, true love is created over time.   

Edit:  the elderly couple might use the term soulmate, but I would not, but my definition of true love is what I stated above.

@RockStar33:  I think there is a miscommunication here about the meaning of the term soul mate. I mean it literally, not as a term of endearment. If we all really have souls, or something similar, I think that certain souls have met over and over again through different lifetimes. I can’t be sure that that is really true just like you can’t be sure that it isn’t true. These are all just opinions because honestly, none of us knows.

@mylittleviolett:  I agree that certain souls are meant for each other, I think that is what the definition of soulmate is, that we are spiritually bound together, that from the beginning our souls were destined to be together. But I personally don’t believe in several lifetimes, I believe in this one lifetime, and then the ‘afterlife’ – heaven or hell. But I believe my Fiance and I were destined to be together, and does it still require work? Hell yes, every relationship does, it is not just sunshine and unicorns.

@Jacqui90:  It seems that everyone has a different idea. Some people believe in soul mates, others don’t. Some believe in soul mates, but in different ways. It really doesn’t matter any way, we all have our own beliefs or ideas.

@mylittleviolett:  Yeah everyone has different beliefs 🙂

And there has been a lot of criticism on this thread for those that believe in soulmates, but there has been none going the other way. Can’t we all just respect each other’s beliefs and leave it at that, rather than saying it is silly, unrealistic, unhealthy, etc?

No, I don’t believe in soul mates. I believe that I have found an amazing, funny, loving, wonderful guy who gets me completely and is my Constant (Lost tv show reference ha!) but he is not my soul mate. That’s just not how I believe the universe works.  He is mine, and I am his.

No, and I think that it is unhealthy.

If your fiance were to die tomorrow, you could find someone else and you would have a different but as amazing relationship. A different but as powerful love.

I think a lot of people settle ( get a long and love each other and marry cuz it is next step) but I do think the lucky ones do find our puzzle peice. The ten couples that come to my mind right now… Only 3 I can’t imagine being apart. Different words but same idea:)

@bebero:  Neither Fiance and I would date if that happened, because it would be unfair to the person we were dating, as we have already found the right one (each other), and it would be cruel to date someone when we knew they were wrong for us. We also see it as somewhat disrespectful to the deceased partner, even if one of us died tomorrow, we wouldn’t date again.

@Jacqui90:  Yeah, I agree. But do people really do that in every day life? No. People criticize and belittle each other over different beliefs.
