Do Soul Mates Exist?

Soul mates absolutely exist! I know because I am fortunate enough to have mine.  

Not only are my husband and I soul mates, but we are a pair of those rare breed - the high school sweethearts. Now I know it sounds like we must be crazy to be together from such a young age and to have been with so few other people. But when you meet your soul mate, wherever you are in your life, you realize that it's not that crazy after all. You find a person that makes you feel like no one else in the world ever has or ever will and you just know you won't be looking anymore.

And, let's be clear, I'm not talking about sex - although that's an awesome benefit for some soul mates! I'm talking about the relationship itself. Soul mates support each other and know each other in an intimate way that has nothing to do with sex and everything to do with who each person is and who they are together. Soul mates understand each other and just fit together in a way that's often hard to describe. Perhaps it's the ying to the yang thing. I don't know, but my soul mate is strong where I'm weak and vice versa.

We didn't get to that point right away though (so I don't know how I feel about "love at first sight"!). Instead, our relationship developed in a way that was like no other I'd had in my young life to that point. It actually crept up on me. To begin with, I thought that I had experienced love at first sight for my husband's high school buddy. It was him that I was after and after months of mutual interest and pursuit, when the guy proved too chicken to actually ask me out, I had already made a close friend of my future husband.

Our relationship eventually grew from friendship to love and it was such a natural transition. He made me feel so comfortable and confident with him and, more importantly, with myself. It really was like we knew each other and understood each other in a way no one else could.

The best part about it? We still do. My husband and I are great friends, best friends (with those awesome benefits!). We share just about everything with each other - good, bad and even indifferent. We've been know to battle royale pretty good, too, but we always come back to each other. Anyone that you can be that close with - male or female - is capable of being your soul mate, extra benefits not required. In my opinion and experience, these types of people are hard to come by. So grab on to them when you find them!

Is there just one soul mate in life for each of us? I don't know the answer to that one. But I do know that if you have one, then one is all you'll ever need.

I think those who had divorced many times will give up on seeking the perfect soul mate.

I'm 18. Ive been on and off with my boyfriend since I was 12! And I believe that we are soul mates. I know people say its very unlikely that we will ever last but our love is stronger then anyone I have ever meant, old and young. I think there is someone out there for everyone. I don't believe in divorced every problem has a solution!

I found my soul mate and screwed up, i cheated...i became the one thing i dispise in the world, the thing i hate most. We have a second chance now, i dont want to mess it up...im working really hard to make it work, but i feel now that because of what i did he has lost faith and although he wants us, he wants others too? that is because of what i did?

Back at high school I thought I had find the one person who made me feel complete (soul mate). I was 17 and she was 14. The issue was that she signalled that she would not go into a relationship until she was 18 and I respected that and I paid a heavy price for it that because she then went from relationship to relationship at my watch and I would be torn apart every single day because she would tell me everyday about he relationships. Years passed and my heart was bitter and I will literally pray every night to be detached from her but the following day I will still see her and I'll fall apart AGAIN. Before ALL this heart breaking took place I thought she would be the one I'll spend the rest of life with, she was my best friend, I knew almost everything about her. We would share and discuss about our future together and where and how we would back pack the world and where and how we would get married and raise our kids but it all came crumbling when she got another guy instead of me.
