    DH is my soul mate.
    We know how lucky we are to have found eachother
    Having DH in my life changed my mind about what would be a deal breaker. Now, I'd be willing to work through anything to be together. But a big part of what makes me feel comfortable saying that is the fact that I know we both cherish what we have and wouldn't willingly do anything to jeopardize that.

    My mum and dad are soul mates, but they honestly just couldn't get their s*%t together well enough to be together and be happy. So even tho they are not together, they are still soul mates

    I agree with Ana. It's all about the different lessons we need to learn too. People will come and go from your life adding to your life experiences, connections and lessons.
    I got told by a psychic awhile ago that I would meet my higher level soulmate for this lifetime after my last relationship ended, my last partner was a soulmate too but not one that was meant to hang around. Everything she said has so far been accurate, it's a little spooky tbh. But there is an unspeakable connection between my current dp and I. It's not about being similar to someone either like I thought so myself in the past. My dp & I are quite different. It's hard to put into words but we just 'click' and understand each other. Weird little things too like I will often have a song stuck in my head when he is not around and then when I see him next he will start singing that song out of the blue (he likes to sing ) and they aren't main****** songs that you'd hear on the radio either.
    FOB was definitely not a soulmate however, even though we had 2 kids together. He was a big lesson though, a very significant one in my life.

    They are like two pieces to the puzzle that I didn't even know were missing until I found them. It makes me wonder how many more pieces there are.
    I know exactly what you mean that's how I'd explain it too.

    I personally dont think that a soul mate has to be someone you date. I believe that you can find a soul mate in a friendship....if you're lucky.

    I believe pets can be soulmates too my old cat and I had a strong connection, I've never had a connection with an animal like I did with him. I think he was my companion in many past lives.

    "Soul mates" are a load of crap.

    Relationships that last the distance are based on honesty, truth, mutual understanding, shared goals, give and take and good negotiatian skills. Knowing how to have fair and reasonable arguments and seeing things from the others perspective is also important.

    The best relationships don't just happen because of some airy fairy notion of connection. They take work.

    I am with opinionated on this one, might be unromantic but it is just how I feel. It is kind of like a Hallmark expression, great for cards not much else.

    I think it's possible
    My PIL have been divorced for over a decade, but they are still the very best of friends to this day.

    But what's the difference between a soul mate and someone with whom you have a really special connection?

    To me, 'soul mate' implies some sort of cosmic plan, in a 'meant to be' way. Which I don't believe in.

    I totally believe you can have a connection to someone that is quite unique. But to me, that doesn't mean 'soul mate'.

    Are we arguing semantics, or do the people who believe in soul mates believe in a cosmic/ divine plan that they were meant to be together?
