The idea of a soulmate sounds like a fairy tale. Just like true love.

People are so focused on physical attraction that they don't always see who the person is inside. Once you get to know them, who knows what will happen. With so much obsession on fairy tales, people miss reality and are willing to toss aside a perfectly good person for that soulmate who might be out there. What if you don't find them? Are they alive or dead? Are they nearby or on the other side of the world? You cant guarantee anything when you focus on a fairy tale.

It sounds nice in a story but its not real life.

Not really. Plenty of people never find a special someone. And the idea that someone out there is made to be a perfect match for you makes people unwilling to grow as a couple. Successful relationships require both people making compromises and communicating, not magically being a perfect fit for one another.

yeah! soulmates i think are just people who you connect with on a deeper level than other people, that you're 'linked' to in a way. and with anyone else soulmates still take work, but not as much as it would with people who aren't your soulmate

No. I believe that there are truly "many fishes in the sea". There are many people who are compatible with one person, and for some people healthy relationships are impossible.

I know several couples who got divorced after 20 or 30 years. They had a good run for a while and I'm sure they would say at one point that they were soulmates. So how would you ever really know? It's a romantic concept but it's a hard thing to define so my answer is.... maybe?

I do believe in the concept of a soulmate, someone God himself built to be a match for you.

How else do I explain the only woman I ever loved , Sophie? I am a difficult person to get along with as many of you know. I have stances, ideals, and opinions many of you vehemently disagree with and for the most part I to vehemently disagree with you. Most of you I find weak pathetic creatures who complain of hardship and suffering without knowing the meaning of either words . Most of you I find undeserving of the lives you have been given. Most of you I hate for being unwilling to help your fellow human beings with the strength you've been given.

My point is Sophie was unlike any of you , unlike anyone else I have meet before and after I lost her. She had a strength that surpassed even mine, even surpassed her Father, a man whom I consider my greatest teacher and friend. And when I realised I loved her and she loved me I felt a happiness that in 30 years of living has yet to be surpassed. I am a Soldier, a man who has dedicated his life to bring what light and happiness he can into the world around him, and despite the fact it has been nearly eleven years since I lost her just thinking about Sophie is enough to make me shed a few tears.

I am now 30, and I have yet to meet either Man or Woman who could take Sophie's place. For as I said most of the people I know are worthless sub-human animals only interested in their selfish desires. How could I come to care for them on a romantic level when they refuse to see the world around them and the pain it is in. I have no desire to form a bond with anyone unwilling to do something about that pain.

And that is why I believe in the concept of soulmates, for how else to explain the perfection that was Sophie?

we're never alive when our soulmate/s are, they are our guardian angels, but we do have kindred spirits where we've been exposed to them somewhere in our past lives. this is my opinion, if you lack religion and/or don't believe in reincarnation this could be complicated to understand.

I believe in love so great that one soul can get interlocked in an eternal cosmic dance with another. Yet, humanity and the impermanence of life presents interesting conflicts. Like the scenario you mentioned, we still have physical needs, and our benign human nature is to connect, socialize and be with other people. I don't necessarily think that love is exclusively limited to a soulmate. So if one were to lose his or her soul mate and carry on, I would assume there would be a grave period of grief, but because we are made of love, and love is what helps us make sense out of the vast expanse of the universe and it all, I believe we could come to love again. Would it be a fire that burned like the one with the soul mate, no, but could love happen again with another soul, I believe so. And part of human nature and sexuality is the fact we aren't instinctually monogamous. So my point is, could you have more than one soul mate? I think the most important thing to believe in undoubtedly is love. that is the base, otherwise you wont beat the hardships of life. Good discussion point here! I ultimately do believe in soulmates yes! It's human character that muddies it and makes it a little more complicated!
