    What is your definition of "soulmate"?

    Do you believe in soulmates?  I do, because I married mine.  But what is a soulmate?  Can you put it into words?

    Your soulmate is someone who makes your heart flutter, someone who you would stand beside happily for all time, who knows that arguments are not against each other but along side each other as you work through a problem, someone who completes your sentences and knows what you are feeling before you can put it into words.  Your soulmate brings out the very best in you just by being in your life, while at the same time diminishing your flaws, making you a better person as a matter of course.  They are truly your very best friend who loves you and whom you love unconditionally.

      I love your answer.   I think the unconditional love part is key.  My husband truly loves me unconditionally and that is such a gift.

    I believe in soulmates but not sole-mates. In a world with over 7 Billion people in it there is a more than "one" person who will "get you", "love you", "natuarlly agree with you on the important things in life", "share your same values" and feels a strong attraction/chemistry towards you. A soulmate has all of these qualities but what makes the relationship so special is you (both) feel the same way about one another!
    Soulmates are the ultimate (like attracts like scenario). In order for him/her to be "the one" they must also see you as being "the one". Ther reason most people have such a difficult time finding someone is because it is our human nature to naturally (exclude) rather than (include) people when it comes to potential partners. I discussed this awhile back. http://dashingscorpio.hubpages.com/hub/ … venbillion

      Good point. When you think about it, it is amazing to have two people feel those same things about each other.   I wonder if it's possible to feel that someone is your soulmate, but they don't feel the same way back?  That would be sad...

      g-girl11, I agree with you it is sad when love isn't mutual. Whenever a person (wants) their mate to "commit". I always ask: Why would you want to marry someone who doesn't want to marry you? Clearly they aren't your soulmate!

    A man that fit this description  1 Corinthians 13:4-7 ESV

    Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

      I've always loved this passage.  And when I think about it, I am lucky to have this love with my husband.  We may not be perfect, but our foundation is built on these principles.

      Yes. It is so important to feel that you are understood, and loved unconditionally. It is a rare thing, and should be treasured.

    My wife is always my soulmate.

    It is a kind of connection that we know what we want. In times of sadness, we comfort each other. Certain times, words needn't to be spoken and we know what the other party wants.

      I like this answer.  Especially about the unspoken times.

    Soulmate? This is extremely tough to define. Yet if two people are indeed "listening" at least for a fleeting moment and their paths cross, perhaps what some may see as coincidental, then there is opportunity for this to grow from two different souls merging to become one. One must understand that in marriage we are indeed eventually to become one entity. Husband in wife are joined to become one. Therefore, I would summize that soulmates are two that are eventually destined to be one. There is definitive quatitative evidence that the longer two are together in marriage the more similar they do become. What I should say is, that there exists a significant positive correlation between length of togetherness and evidence of same views. Therefore, I will conclude that the definition of soulmate is two souls who meet and bond to eventually become one.

      connorj, well-thought and well-put.  It seems some know their soulmate "instantly" but I agree that a true soulmate must stand the test of time.

    Solemates...are two partners with two bodies but with 1soul..  You can defines it as your clone.. Or Mirror image.. Or The meeting of two person made for each other. The pairs made by god.. In term of clone-i want to say that both life partner are same from all points of view. Both of their thinking,emotions,feelings,affections and many more are same for each other. The relationship where  silence says everything to each other. Both the life partner wants to live each and every moment of life together and wants their presence in their life not only till they lived in this world inspite of that they need their presence after their death also.They want to be stayed together.Soulmates are those in which if one of the partner saiys good bye to this world then second partner also hugs the death happily for their life partner. This is what a real truth of relationship which defines a SOULMATES
