    @rosegoldie:  reading your post (#35), is the first time I’ve thought, well maybe we are soulmates then. I don’t believe in soulmates, in that I do not believe only one person out of 7 billion on this earth could make me happy. My SO says “if I’m meant to be married, you’re the only person I would want to marry”…whether that means she thinks we’re “soulmates” or not, idk.

    I do 100% that our connection and relationship could not be duplicated with anyone else.

    I’m another who does not believe in souls or soulmates. That said, I’d have to look pretty damn hard to find anyone who could match up to my Fiance.

    I think there is at least one person for everyone that wants someone, and I think that we will meet a number of potentially compatible people in life. Hence my stance that crushes are just a part of life, no matter how much you love your SO.

    That said, I consider my SO my soulmate, my better half, my best friend, and the One.

    Why do I consider him my soulmate? It feels like we were created for each other. At the same time, if circumstances were different or something were to happen to him, I believe God would have someone else in mind for me. I definitely do not want to find out, but I’ll admit it.

    Best friend yes (while he has to compete with our cat for that position) but don’t believe in sole mates.  I believe in chance encounters, compatibility and love and hard work on our relationship.  I’m SO glad that we were brought together but don’t think it’s from fate and honestly if I lived elsewhere or little changes would not have brought us together, I would hopefully be happy with someone else.  So chance not fate for me

    I chose best friend and soulmate. He’s the man that was made just for me by God and with all of my ups/downs/kicks/screams he knows how to handle all. He’s my future children father so how can I not love this man!!!

    He’s my soulmate, my other half, my best friend, and the answer to my prayers. I don’t believe in coincidences. From the day I met him I felt a connection to him that words just can’t describe. They say love is a chemical reaction and thats sorta how it felt. I just feel complete when i’m with him. When he’s gone overnight its like i’m missing a part of myself.

    Speaking of which I think i’ll go home and give my husband a big kiss now.

    Don’t know if I believe in soul mates, because it seems statistically unlikely that every person who  married their soulmate would just so happen to live in the same zip code as them 90% of the time.

    But, I do believe more in “kindred spirits”, and I definitely think my BF is mine.

    @rosegoldie:  I believe DH is my soulmate, but he’s not my other half. We are both whole people and view our relationship as him bringing 100% and me bringing 100%. That being said I still miss the crap out of him when we’re apart (we were LDR for most of our engagement).  And he’s definitely my best friend.

    He is 100% my soul mate and best friend. When anyone says their SO isn’t their best friend or soul mate, it makes me feel sad for them. There are a lot of people I could be happy with, but FH is absolutely THE one for me and unlike any other.

    My hubby’s the only person who I can spend hrs, days, weeks with then as soon as we’re apart I miss him, he’s my best friend as in the fact that that everything I do is funner if he is with me even grocery shopping. My bff is a girlfriend Iv known since I was 7 but its a different friendship to my hubby. I also think my hubby is my soul mate cos throughout our relationship there have been trying times that could have torn us apart (and did for a lot of other couples round us) but through everything we couldn’t live without each other we were always pulled back to each other and had to be together, we just get each other. He annoys me and I annoy him but he’s truly the perfect other half for me

    I believe that my husband is my best friend and soulmate. I share a closeness and intimacy with him (non-sexual being referred to here) that I have never had with someone else and that I won’t have with anyone else. I also have other people I consider to be a best friend, like my sister, but it doesn’t compare to what I have with my husband and it’s a different type of friendship and closeness.

    Although I wouldn’t consider any of my ex’s my soulmates, Iw definitely have that feeling too when I am in a long-term relationship.

    So far I have been the one who always cares and loves more in the relationship. So I totally identify with not being able to sleep when they aren’t around! There’s nothing like the security of knowing they are with you and are safe, that makes sleeping all that easier.

    I do believe that we can have people in our lives that are very close and we have a deep connection with.

    I had a dear friend who I met online who I became very close to. We never dated, although initially I liked him, but we agreed to be friends. I was so glad because the friendship was so intense. We just had this deep connection and understanding of each other that I have never felt before. It was amazing, it was as if we had some type of cosmic bond. We could talk for hours and never run out of stuff to talk about. If I had a personal problem in my life, I know I could call him and talk to him about it without being judged or annoying him and vice versa. 

    Even though we weren’t together in a relationship sense, we were amazing friends. I did mourn when he disappeared out of my life. He made a tremendous impact on my life (for the better). 

    I definitely think though, that if you are with someone in a relationship, that your SO/Husband/FI or Life Partner is connected to you like a soul-mate. At least it should be that way (I know it doesn’t always work out that way for everyone!). But we should all be lucky enough to have someone in our lives that’s like that!
