What Is a Soulmate?
A soulmate can be a friend or a romantic partner. They are usually someone you have a close bond with, and a very strong connection is present between the two of you. You feel almost in sync with them and sometimes like you are one.
Not in the sense that you lack your own personality, but in the sense that you have such a strong bond with one another and flow so well together that you flow into one. You can’t force a soulmate; it’s a connection that happens on its own.
Are Soulmates Real?
Some people may not think that soulmates are real because they haven’t found theirs yet and don’t know people who have either. Perhaps it’s something you can choose to believe in or not, similar to believing that love at first sight is real or not.
Certainly, there are people who have found their soulmate and can defend the side that chooses to believe they are real, but it’s all a matter of if you truly believe there can be that strong of a connection and bond with someone or not.
Signs You Found Your Soulmate
#1 You can talk about anything together.
You know your soulmate won’t judge you, no matter how crazy or terrible whatever you have to tell them is. You are certain you can talk about anything and everything, and they will understand you completely, even if you are the worst at explaining it to them.
Sometimes, you might not even have to finish saying it because they will know exactly what you wanted to say and may even finish your thought or sentence.
#2 You have an undeniable connection.
There is no doubt that you and this person have an undeniable connection. There will be many instances where it almost feels like you can read each other’s minds and know exactly what the other person wants without them having to tell you. This doesn’t happen all of the time, but it does happen.
Some may call it a hunch, but you know that this isn’t just any hunch; it’s because you are soulmates. Not only that, but you connect on several levels, including a soul level.
#3 You respect all of your flaws and imperfections.
You don’t want to change anything about this person because you like them just the way they are. If there is something you really don’t like about them, you accept them as they are anyways because that’s just what soulmates do. They are perfectly content with how the other person is, their quirks, and all their flaws and imperfections. To you, they’re not flaws and imperfections; they’re just these little things that make them who they are.
#4 You’re best friends.
You’re best friends before you’re anything else. If your partner is your soulmate, they are your friend first and your lover second. This means that when something is wrong, you are worried about them, and you’re by their side until they feel better about whatever situation they’re going through.
You prioritize them and have a special place in your heart for them. You can joke around with them as you do with your other best friends, and if you share a moment of silence, it’s not uncomfortable at all.
#5 You have a gut feeling.
More than just knowing that you have an undeniable bond, you can feel it deep inside. You have a gut feeling that this person is your soulmate, and you just know they are. You don’t necessarily have a valid reason or explanation; it’s something you are 100% sure about.
#6 You balance each other.
You and your soulmate might not have everything in common, but that’s okay; it’s part of why you’re soulmates. By not having everything in common and having differences, you complement each other and balance each other. What they lack, you have more of, and vice versa. If your partner is your soulmate, this will make you the power duo you see on the big screen but in real life.
#7 You envision the same future.
Although the way you get there might be completely different, you have similar goals, and you envision the same future, one where you’re together. You can compromise to get to that future because it’s not so much about what you get along the way but that in the end, you’re able to share it together.
#8 You can be yourself with them.
You can always be yourself with them with no fear of being judged. Whatever is on your mind, whether positive or negative, you know that when you are with them you are in a safe space to talk about anything and everything. You don’t have to limit yourself or try to dim your personality because you are certain that they love and accept you exactly for who you are.
#9 If they hurt, you hurt.
You may have noticed that there are some people that you’ll see go through something and hurt through it, and so will you. It’s almost as if you mirror their emotions, but you have no idea why you are experiencing that. Chances are that if you notice this happening, it’s because they’re your soulmate.
More than likely, they feel the same when you’re going through a hard time, and they haven’t realized it or vocalized it. This only happens when there is a very deep connection between you and the other person, so you must be soulmates if you are experiencing this.
#10 There are no threats to your relationship.
There is nothing that you feel could harm your relationship with the other person. You don’t fear that someone will come between you because you feel strong and secure in your relationship. Your bond is that of soulmates, so it has to be unbreakable and stronger than any other bond.
Even if you were to be faced with having a long-distance relationship, you know that the distance could never come between you and that what you have is stronger than that.
#11 You understand each other.
You understand each other perfectly. You understand them, and they understand you. They understand you as much as you understand them. You understand each other in the sense that you know how each one thinks, their mindset for life, and everything about one another simply makes sense to the both of you.
#12 You feel like you can read their mind.
You are so connected with this person that you almost feel like you can read their mind, and more than likely, you’ve felt that they can read yours too. Now, of course, this doesn’t mean that you are mind readers and that you don’t need to talk or communicate in some way to tell each other things.
You still need to do that, but you usually have a good idea of their opinion on something or what they’ll want because you know them so well. It’s not magic; it’s a deep bond.
#13 You feel safest when you are with them.
Even though you know they aren’t superheroes, when you’re with them, you feel like they are, and nothing bad could ever happen to you. You trust them completely to keep you safe, and you are 100% certain that they will do everything in their power to do so.
They always put your safety before their own because of how much they love you, and they always will. Even if you’re in the comfort of your own home, things just feel better when they’re nearby.
#14 You feel like you’ve known each other forever.
It feels like you’ve known this person your whole life because of how well you know each other. Sometimes, you find your soulmate, and you’re doubtful whether they could really be your soulmate because you’ve only known them for a short amount of time.
However, this shouldn’t set you back from realizing that they really are your soulmate because it’s very common to only know them for a short period and already feel so connected to them. More often than not, people realize their partners are their soulmates at the beginning of the relationship, believe it or not.
#15 You truly love them.
There is no doubt that you truly love them with the entirety of your being. You’ve never loved anyone more than you love them, and you’ve never cared about anyone else the way you care about them. They are the most special person to you, and you love them with all your heart.
Wrapping it up. A soulmate isn’t easy to find, and you can’t go around looking for them. They must arrive in your life when the timing is right and when you meet the right person. Don’t be frustrated if you haven’t found your soulmate yet; you never know when they’ll appear in your life.
