I have two soulmates (one female and one male). They're both my friends. I love them both as I would with my family. Contrary to a few people's beliefs, soulmates can be purely platonic.

I believe there are many people out there who could be my soulmate. Already found one, and lost them, so hopefully there's more.

I didn't believe in soulmates until I got married.

Now I know, my true soul mate is rum.

My thing is, I used to believe in the "red string of fate" and all. I met a woman who just completely blew me away. Kind, passionate, tall, awesome cook. We were both fans of Richard Bach at the time... Well we just clicked in so many ways. She played violin... A lovely woman playing a lovely instrument. I don't believe I have ever before or since felt the degree of serenity that I felt just basking in that aura. The focused passion on her perfect face as she filled the room with such beautiful music. Then, she broke up with me.
I've had a few relationships since, but no good ones. I believed so strongly that she was my soulmate, I just started thinking "Well, you blew it. You let your soulmate slip through your fingers. Try harder in your next life."
Many years later, I was talking to the mutual friend who had introduced me to her in the first place. The topic of my ex came up, and she told me "She said the main reason she broke up with you was you weren't very good at sex."
Well the good news, I guess, is that helped me start to get over her. It's not like I am a manly testosterone type who takes any particular pride in my performance abilities. I wasn't really offended in that way. But the fact that a relationship I considered so spiritual could be reduced to something so carnal... Maybe I didn't put in enough "effort". For me, when it comes to relationships, I never considered sex a priority.
So I guess, it's like, I don't think my soulmate would ever say something like that. I want to believe they still exist. But I was SO SURE of it that time, I'm not sure what metric I could use to make a positive confirmation.
*sigh* romance is too complicated. Sometimes I wish I lived in a time/place with arranged marriages.

I'm normally not one to believe in things that are all "spiritual like"

But yes, I do like to think such a thing does and can exist for everyone.

meeting someone who you think is your soul mate is a very psychedelic experience. for me it was love at first sight then I got to know the person. I am a very lucky person

i do believe in soul mates.
i believe that there's more than one soul mate (it could be friends, family, a person that has a strong connection with you, etc), but only one in the romantic way though.

Sex isn't a priority in a long term relationship, you have your priorities straight. Your view and opinion of her is very respectable and she's a damn fool for not seeing it. The thing about the way you prioritize is that it is for something lasting. It will end up filtering out those that don't want the same, and in this day and age, people aren't aiming for long beautiful relationships as much as they should. It's a darn shame and it makes it that much harder. Sometimes it's hard to find the right person, no one said it was easy, it's truly anything but easy.

After all, what's bad comes easy and what's good is difficult to achieve. Confucius for you.

Perfect relationships don't exist, but perfect people for us do. For the good and bad.
