    Does anyone believe in soul mates? Have you found yours?

    Absolutely. My soulmate is my best friend. I don't think that your spouse has to necessarily be your soulmate. Looking in the same direction (which is the most important for a marriage) doesn't really mean being soulmates. Yet, complete understanding and that invisible spiritual bond between two human beings, when found in a spouse, is jackpot!

    The "soul mate" I married at 28 became a "ball and chain" by the time I hit 40.  I couldn't dump him fast enough.  People change.  If you are looking for a soul mate instead of someone who is your best friend and someone you can rely on, be prepared to be disappointed.  Sure, I've seen relationships and marriages last for years and years.  Lucky people.  They have it.  They know what works for them.  To me, soul mates belong in romance novels and movies.  A soul mate is just an idea.  In real life, I've found a lot of happiness with my second husband.  It's because through experience, I've found someone I could go the distance with.  After making plenty of mistakes, I know what I want in a mate.

    Originally, I do not believe that there is one soul mate for every soul, meaning they go in pairs and you spend your entire life looking for the other half.

    What I do believe in, is that your partner or your best friend could very well be "perfect" for you and thus your soulmate in that sense.

    To answer the second question; yes, I think I have found both of them. I say both, because I agree that your partner or spouse does not necessarily have to be your soulmate, but I feel he is. Not fate, not karma, not meant to be - but we are fantastic together and I do not think there is a better match for me or him out there.

    The second one is my best friend. We started off with a very weird meeting but both took the time to get to know each other and decipher the truth from the lies, and we became best friends ever since.

    What I would describe as a soul mate, is a person with whom you have many things in common, yet have enough differences to keep broadening your window on the world. People who respect each other, love each other simply for who they are and would never deny a challenge but would work together, stand strong and face every difficulty in life together. A person who does not need more than a simple look to understand what you are saying; who does not need more than a simple hug to know you will always be there for them. And last but not least: a true soul mate loves you for who you are, warts and all - and you love them equally.

    I didn't believe in soul mates or even true love. The only love i believed in was the familiar kind. But, now that I have found my soul mate, I truly do believe we were put on this planet just for each other.

    I thought I found mine but I wasn't hers. I cried for 200 days when I found out. It's been almost 2 years now, and it still makes me sad.

    I dont believe there is just one special person in the world, i believe there are many. The only difficulty is finding them!

    i've met mine, long before i knew he was my soul mate.. we are best friends, but thats all its been for 4 yrs... i beleive we can have more than one soul mate, its about who blends with who we are at the time as to how close our souls become, when things turn bad, its not that they were our soul mate or that they weren't... its just that, that particular phase has ran its course allowing room for the next one to come and share their part in our souls..

    a person comes into our lives for a reason, a season or a lifetime... its the quality of that time that depicts what and why it is and how deep our souls are touched by the union.. it can be friend, lover or spouse..  souls only come into our lives if we allow it to happen no matter who they are.
    i have a 74yo friend who's soul is very much the same as mine, we share the same thoughts and views.. this does not mean anything sorded or gross.. and a guy who is someone who will be in my life forever, wether we begin a relationship or not.. we just will be. and another friend who is a child, who is very close to my soul, we share a loe of so many things the same.. there is nothing gross or sorded there either, we are just soul friends.. so, a soul mate is anyone an everyone we allow them to be, some just become a spouse
