Do you believe in the concept of a "soulmate"? Do you think that potentially we can deeply love and have a lasting relationship with different people or is there only one true soulmate out there for us? Is the term soulmate stuff for romance novels, or real life?

I believe in soul mates and i think you can have more than one for various reasons .

Ok here we go into my mind , BEWARE LMAO.

We have different levels of soul mates who each have different jobs , its not a magical person or persons whom we would have to travel the world to find its about our energies , it is when two people completely invest themselves into each other on an unconscious level, Soul Mates tap into that energy of unconditional love whether its for a brief moment in time or forever .

There is your mirrored image the strongest and most powerful type of Soul Mates. They do have many similar interests and share an almost equal interest in their life direction. They will think alike, and in many cases will be able to continue speaking a sentence where the other one has left off. They are a mirror of each other, although they do not have to be exactly the same. However, each one compliments the other with their individual strengths and weaknesses and they will understand each other by being on same 'wavelength' , i view this as my sister , we have the strongest bond one i believe cannot be broken we are so similar in every way its scary .

Your provider - sometimes we refer to these soulmates as our angels , they tend to turn up at the strangest time , they usually will not stay in our lives for a great length of time. You might come across a Soul Mate of this kind when you are just wondering along the street, these come out of the blue but have a deep impact on your life in a very positive way , they can provide us with an answer or a push toward making a small decision in order to keep us moving in our lives and struggles at that time , ive had so many of these " soulmates " pass through my life right when i needed them .

Your Supporter – Soul Mates of this sort are everywhere around you. Try to take deeper look at the people who surround you. Just look around when you are in dire need of help or guidance in a 'life or death' situation or at a time when you have a heavy burden on your shoulders. Who is around you and ready to listen to you when you really need their assistance? Think of the people who bring you comfort and peace when you need it, or who answer your call when you need some help. These types of Soul Mates do have unconditional love towards each other which can sometimes be difficult to comprehend. This is Jamie he is my supporter and i am his , we were immediately ",home" when we met each other , we are completely invested in each other and i have always referred to him as my soul mate .

I also think that pets can be soul mates .

I just basically copied my reply from another post about souls, lol.

I DO believe we have soulmates and in reincarnation. I believe that we have one soul that is our other half (our love) that will always try to find each other in any life (I don't think many do though) . I also think that we have other soulmates in the form of family and friends, that people who are main pinacle (sp?) people to us in one life will be in all our lives. Ie- my mom may be my brother in another life. This is just my take on souls, energy, whatever title you put on it...a rose by any other name..

I think a person can have multiple "soul mates" in their life time. Between lovers, friends, family, I think that the relationship of a soul mate is simply put; a personality that meshes with your personality in such a way that they grow, love and nurture each other, making the other better, happier and more complete.

My husband has been my soulmate for 25 years. When we met it was an instant bonding and we were friends for 6 months before we dated. I can tell him anything and he will not judge me, he is my shoulder to cry on and my rock. I have a best friend as well but the relationship is different. I can tell her anything and she will advise me but the bond is not the same, even though I think of her as a sister. I believe there is a soul mate for everyone out there and that your life is much richer if you have this relationship in your life.

Its been my experience that people don't usually love anyone else, they usually love an idealized person they make up. When they fall in love with someone, its a combination of chemicals distorting their thinking and believing that person fits into their pre-conceived notion. You can't love someone until you know all their faults and secrets, you've seen them at their worst, and you've been absolutely fed up with them (no more infatuation distorting reality). When this happens, most people can't accept reality and run away, still chasing their idealized version of love. If they settle, they are usually miserable and take it out on their partner for failing to measure up.

I guess I can believe in soul mates. Do I think you only have one. Probably not. Have I ever met anyone that's even come close to my husband, never. The moment saw Matt across the room our eyes locked. We both knew. We have way too many similarities too, not so much that we're exactly the same, but enough to say we're capable of being soul mates.

Most romance crap is made up for novels and movies. At least that's been my experience. I'm lucky to have found somebody who I have respect and love for who also feels the same about me, and we also share some sort of "connection". But, honestly, I've not had ONE good "romantic" moment my entire life. And I am married.

I don't think there could only be one true match for a person. Look how many of us found perfect partners in life. The odds of us bumping into them, let alone just being on the same continent or being able to form a relationship in the first place are staggering. I met my man at the bar, took him home and kept him. We work very well together but I don't doubt, in different circumstances, I could have found that with another.

I believe in soul mates in a sense that every person has at least one other person/soul/energy that they continually get reincarnated with (more often then not it is many more than one soul). It might not be every life, and they might not have a huge role to play in every life, but you are essentially linked to that soul/energy. I have had 311 reincarnations and my mother (well my mother in this life lol) has been with me for... 200 of them or so)

I was in love with my boyfriend the first time I talked to him. No joke, feelings haven't changed since we met, except the lack of nervousness which went away after a day or two. The feeling is the same, any way either of us has changed has been a mutual evolution, we remain on the same wavelength.

Do I think he's my soulmate? I think we're nearly (I'm sure he'd like me to be less forgetful and/or messy, but then there would be less to laugh about ;) ) perfectly compatible and I wouldn't trade him for the world. but I don't believe there's only one person we can be deeply in love with in the world. I'm sure there are many people I could love just as much as I love him, and the same goes for him. So in a way a believe in soulmates, as near perfect matches, but I don't believe in ONE soulmate. I do believe that when you catch a perfect fish you should keep it. Whether there are one or a thousand, I'm keeping my one. But if the fish gets away I don't doubt theres another fish swimming around nearby. I believe in plural soulmates. ;)

I have a very good friend who I concider a soul mate, but I'm not married to him. I also knew the first time I went out with my hubby that I wanted to marry him. We got engaged after 3 months. I concider him to be a soulmate too.

I think the first time I met my husband there was something about him that made me feel a deeper connection with him than I ever have to any other person. I don't know if that means he's my soulmate, but sometimes it feels like he was made just for me. I won't count out soulmates, it's a nice idea. However, I don't agree that there's only one person in the world for everyone, that is silly.
