      Good Question!  The most important thing to find is the 'Soul.'
      Before you disconnect me from this site... Think About That.
      Personally, I have not 'found' that many people seem to have one. (I don't mean from a religious sense)  I believe that a 'Soul Mate' is someone that you connect with on all levels.  You Just KNOW.  It is an intuitive experience.  No words are required.. you Know Eachother so well and don't create expectations or ever find fault in eachover.  Ronan Keating sums it up in the lyrics to his song: You Say It Best...
      Perhaps your Soul Mate is the that you consider to be Your 'Guardian Angel.'
      If so; What lesson would you learn?

      Agreed.  There are all kinds of connections between people.  Never 'one right' person out there for you...only very good ones.

    Great question.
    We are all soul mates.  Singling out one person because of a type of love (we know there are many types of love) doesn't make sense.
    I value honesty, loyalty, truthfulness and a sense of fun in whoever I spend time with.

      I agree entirely with this theory but after the way my beloved ex betrayed me in all of those respects, a mere five months on from my horrific discovery, I still have a very bitter taste in my mouth following her "betrayals." I am now sticking to dogs! Far more loyal than women (in my experience!) smile

    A good mirror because in life the person looking back is the only person who won't let you down. A soulmate is a nice thought but only in fantasy !

    someone you enjoy being with and have fun. Loving them even when you can be so upset with them.

    I think that anybody you get a certain kind of connection with will be a soul mate.

    Two souls  ... split in heaven ... if they find each other on earth ... they are soul mates ... I'd say its all a piece of CRAP!

    I don't believe in soulmates. I think that some people are better suited to be together. However I don't think there is one person out there that you are meant to be with. A lot of factors come into play before you spend the rest of your life with someone.  If I was asked what qualities I look for in a significant other, I could answer that. smile

    I believe I have found my soulmate, but not because it was pre-destined.  I found a man with the ability to give love and to receive it.  We are a good match.  Everyday we are together, we are learning and becoming more understanding to one another.  Our souls are committing to each other more and more each moment.  A person can have more than one soul mate in their lifetime.  Love is a fluid thing.

    Im not a girl who cares about money in a man at all. Truthfulness and the ability to tell me anything is all I care about!!! My husband cant get that through his head. He likes to lie alot.

    The ability to love herself first. Anyone who cannot be happy in their own skin will never be happy with someone else.

      Oh, how wonderfully put! One's primary relationship should be with oneself. I would add that to put the best interests of your mate before your own is at the top of the list.

        i can't agree with this because 'happy' is highly relative to an individual, and is often used judgmentally by others to presume something potentially inaccurate about that individual's need and readiness to be in a loving relationship.

        life and love are about growth and change, not achieving a state of perpetual centripetal bliss.

          I wasn't talking Zanex happy. I was referring to someone being content. Someone not looking to fill voids within their own souls with the characteristics they may find attractive in others.

          I think it's that you no longer need anyone else to approve of your feelings about yourself. You know what you need to be happy and if other people don't agree, well, so what. I've noticed that people who have reached this point in their lives make better friends too.

    i believe in soul 'mates' to the nth degree...but i don't think there's only one match for each.  that said...

    I don't think the concept of feeling someone is a soulmate is something that involves "thinking x is important".  It's just something that it is.  Whether or not it's nothing more than a matter of x amount of things clicking or not, I don't know; but I do know there are people who have experienced it. 

    I think the reason so many people don't believe in it is that it is rare. Someone once said to me, "If we all waited to find a soulmate we'd all end up single forever and having no children."    smile  On the other hand, a lot of people pretty much call call any-old-body they're happy with a "soulmate" (until the relationship goes sour and they find another "soulmate"  smile  ).
