      Nope, sorry.  Relationships take work and time to grow.  Only in the movies.  You don't find a soulmate, you become one.

    I do believe in soulmates because I have found mine and have married him. We dated back in HS on and off and went our seperate ways after HS but here we are now married and together the way it's supposed to be.

      Same except we ultimately screwed it up and are no longer together.  Sooo I believe in soulmates.  I believe you can find your soulmate and still mess it up.

    I do believe in soulmates, but not a perfect match.  A perfect match would mean that you would both have to be perfect.  Which, in my opinion, is not possible.

    Is there such a perfect pair? Noboby is perfect... the only thing that exists are perfectionist.

    Just an opinion.

    The perfect match and soul mate are a combination of two people willing to team up and take on the world!

    Congrats on 100 again, Cosette.

    There's no such thing as the perfect person, although I believe there are people that are perfect for each other.

    I've found mine, and I love her with all that I am.

    I thought I did until last May when my fiance ended things, and sometimes I still do, but it's hard to believe in abstract ideas like that when you have had your faith in love and relationships shaken.

    Mr./Ms. right is nothing but the equation of similarities you share, the height of flaws you accept, Sexual attractiveness to each other and last but not the least your own choice.

    Every element is equally important but relatively weighed.

      Very well said! I think there are several we could be very happy with - what we contribute to our relationship is what counts.

    My first issue is not believing in the 'general' soul, depending on how this is defined. I also do not believe there is just one person suited to another in the world, this is a ridiculoud assumption, and even if someone does find a person and stays with them for life, it does not shut the option off. At least in this country. Don't get me wrong though, if I have a great relationship with someone I'd want it to last forever, but at the same time being realistic.

    no i don't ........perfection doesn't exist. we all are inherit ably born with some flaws. Mr. perfect is just a fairy tale concept.....we all have some annoying habits. as far as soulmates is concerned well its more important to find a person who compliments your flaws.

    I'm very practical about all this. Have you ever noticed that most people end up with someone that lives only a few miles from them, yet they say they were the only one in the world for them?

    I think if you could date the next random 20 girls/guys that walk past you, you would find your "soul mate". I'm not trying to be mean, I just see things as they are.

      I think it depends on what you need in a soul mate. Besides, it  comes down to if you could really date the next random 20 girls in my case that come your way. Not likely. Maybe five out of that 20.

    Yes, I do believe. My soul mate and I lived through being apart for 12 years. We were finally able to come together 2 years ago and since then have been through hell for a number of reasons. On several occasions, if it had been someone else, I would have simply walked away and found an easier life. No doubt he would have as well. We're not young and starry-eyed; 55 and 61, respectively.

    I believe in soulmates...but I also think it depends on your definition of a soulmate.

    A soulmate to me can be a lover/Mr. Right or a very best friend. It can even be a sibling. I know identical twins who see each other as soulmates. It definitely exists in my perception of the world.

    I do not believe in a perfect match nor that someone can complete you. This is because nothing is perfect and how tedious and mundane life would be if it was

    I use to believe in this crap, but I don't anymore.

    It's only in dreams and movies.

    who knows... maybe some people like myself are destined to be alone for life.

    I don't believe in either.

    I love my boyfriend and we are a good match. But I don't think that there is only one person you or supposed to be with, nor that any match is perfect.

    Why is it always assumed when you ask if they believe in soulmates, it is a perfect match. What is your soul but your mind, your intellect and feelings, etc. If I find someone who is compatible with me and not necesarrily has the mind that I have but understands and accepts the way that I think, is sensitive to my feelings and can put up with me, and I him, then yes, I do believe in soul mates. Saying that someone is my soulmate does not mean that he or I am perfect nor that it is a perfect match. It just means that I have found that person who understands me, and can deal with me the way that I am, as I can deal with him the way that he is. It does not mean that for the rest of our lives we won't have an argument nor does it mean that we will never disagree or that our lives will be perfect.

    I used to believe finding a soulmate was possible.  But I now realize that life's trials are often capable of turning the most devoted partner into a stressed-out wreck with no room for anything but worry and spite.

    In spite of aspiratations toward spirituality and higher purposes, people are biomechanical organisms that often run out of patience, pleasure and benevolence as they slowly break down.  It's for these reasons that the so-called perfect match is also a casualty.  While some people are blessed with the ability to stay together in love until death, many people aren't capable of addressing the physical and psychological changes that accompany large amounts of time spent in the company of another.

    My film idol Harold Lloyd really drove a point home when he said, "If I had to use another word for love, it would be 'understanding'".  Far more than an alleged preordainment of love, an enduring consideration for one's partner, in times good and bad, goes the distance over the years.

    I believe in a certain level of soul mates, meaning that each person in our lives is meant to be there for some reason or another-but one person that makes us whole and is our balance??? Not too sure-it's a fantastic idea, but I am not sure it is anything more than that, an idea.
