Me and a mate were having a talk and thought we'd ask you lot :)

Do you have a soul mate? Do you think your soul mate it out there? Do you have to love them or can you be mates? What is a soul mate to you?

Opinions please!

Discuss.

I believe I have a few that I consider my soulmates and they consider me as theirs.
I think a person can have several soulmates, some of them are meant to be as your "friendship" soulmates and others are potential "relationship" soulmates.
Soulmate to me is someone I have a special kind of emotional, spiritual, verbal-non verbal etc. connection with. Hard to explain but when I meet a person who's my potential soulmate it just says click in specific way.

Yes, I have one guy, from the internet BTW, to whom I can talk about everything and we also have much in common, but unfortunately we did not meet in a longer time because of school stress.

I think if i had a soul mate, I would only have one, no more. Id love this person and understand him/her more than anyone else in my life. A soul mate as a friend doesn't seem right to me :shrug:

I don't have one. But i sure hope i find one though :D

Good luck trying to find that one and only soulmate among 6 billion people. :p

One of my soulmates died earlier this year and this why I feel blessed having more than one.

It's not about being perfect for someone, it's about a special connection between two people.
Even if you're soulmates in relationship, it takes work but it's a little easier if you're each others' soulmates.

I am sorry to hear that. I feel blessed too, having more than one. It is very painfull to lose your soulmate, but that's just the way. I'll be ready when the curtain falls again.

It's totally true. I just think that the problem that people have is that they think there's only one...I think you can have many, for many different reasons. I don't think it's just about a soulmate for love...I think you can have a soulmate for friends and relatives...blah blah blah.

Well then that changes the definition. You can't argue on that basis, because with that logic, anything can be "true."

As far as I understand, people say that a "soulmate" is someone out there that you are meant to be with, that you match perfectly. That just doesn't happen.

I think that for every person, there are thousands, millions of people that they could be happy with.

Personally I feel that my view is the more romantic one. The idea that only one person out there can ever complete you, it's rather constricting, isn't it?

I never said that only one person can complete you. You'll realise this out if you read my previous posts about this. I don't consider a soulmate being someone who's a perfect match in terms of relationships. It doesn't even have to be connected to romantic love. For me the term soulmate goes beyond romantic love/relationships.

I totally agree with that, You can have one souldmate at a time some one that you are spiritually connected with and close to, and maybe a few in a life time if you are lucky.... I have found my soulmate twice ....and I feel very fortunate for that....

I do believe in soul mates. I thought Jess Barker was my soul mate but he turned out to be a real turd, though I of course got my fabulous twins out of that. Floyd Chalkley was my soul mate, God rest his soul. :sad: I think you only get one in your life.

No not really, its just that there are tons of attractive, smart, sensible and understanding women... who can cook good. :) Id probably be interested in many of the women in my :hearts: highschool graduating class :hearts: were they not already taken.

Hon, you do realise a soul mate can be platonic, don't you?

I believe in them (despite being married 4 times).

I've met my soul mate. We were on our way to becoming really close friends until he suddenly pulled away and started being vague with details. We used to tell each other everything and make up any old little excuse to hang out with each other. We had heaps in common and we had heaps to talk about. There's no sexual chemistry going on, so it is based purely on a platonic friendship and nothing else. I'm not sure what happened. Perhaps there was a misunderstanding somewhere or he lied to me about something and is feeling guilty about it. It feels that way sometimes. I call every once in awhile to say hello and let him know that I'm still his friend, but there's always something going on with him, so I let it go. I believe we're soul mates because we're on the same wavelength, we believe in the same things and have similar attitudes. Our personalities were a perfect match. But maybe there's something going on that I just don't know about. Most people just drift in and then drift out of my life, so it wasn't totally unexpected. Rarely do I have such a connection with people as I did with this friend. Maybe there's such a thing as having too much of a good thing. Our friendship seemed to burn extra brightly for a short period and then just burned out.

Perhaps he couldn't tolerate the fact that there was no sexual chemistry? It's a pity that often people can be shallow like that (if that is the case with your friend) but I realise it's often difficult being friends with someone you have romantic feelings for and it's not reciprocated.

I AGREE. the relation between two soul mates is too special to be found twice.

depends what you mean by soul mate and i guess there are different types of soulmates eg just a mate or something more. and do you have to love them, well there are different types of love as well eg love for a mate, love for a family member, love for a partner. so yeah i reckon you have to love them for them to be your soulmate but in which way, that does not matter.

i dont think i really believe in a soulmate, i certainly havent met anyone in my life to date that would suggest something like there being a soulmate out there. i dont know if there is just one person for someone, my belief is that there can be more than one person in a lifetime who is right for you (obviously at different stages of your life).

a question i pose is do you believe in solemate (as in just one person)? or soulmates (more than one)?

Opinions please!

Discuss. this believer will accept alternate paths to nirvana. If each person is truly unique ... then the successful relationship of two (or more) persons is a miracle.

i believe in miracles. don't think they're as rare as many believe ...

in some ways, i do and in some ways i don't

it's nice to think there's someone for everyone. that you'll find that one person to run in the park with hand in hand and you both fall down while the wind blows your hair all around BUT...

but i think with most things in society, the idea of soulmates is rather corny. weak people rely too much on the idea of having a soulmate that they stay in obviously toxic relationships because they buy into the whole ploy of it, i.e. "you're meant to be together, forever, no matter what", etc. and there goes your basic "but I love him..." situation.

if more people were taught that love is great when you happen upon it and not that you need it to have a meaningful life, i think we wouldn't have so many damaged people in the dating pool. after all, if you're not a complete person, what good is finding your "soulmate"? you'll find your next ex instead.

I certainly believe in soul mates. However in relationship wise, when you think you have met your soul mate, you should not leave it as it is or take it for granted, but nourish it with love, understanding, effort and deep patience as it takes a serious time to build it up to a real, solid relationship even with the soul mate.
