Do you believe in soulmates?

Postby emiko08 » Mon, 12 Dec 2005 2:27 pm

Do anyone of you here believe in soulmates?

If you do, do you think you´ve already found him/her? :)

It's a nice idea, but no I don't believe in soulmates. I don't think it is possible for people to be perfect for one another, and "soulmate" implies that to me.

If a flatmate is someone you share a flat with & roommate is someone you share a room with does that technically mean a soulmate is someone you share a soul with? :???:

Sorry I am just being pedantic, :)

soulmate is someone with whom you share a close friendship and deep personal understanding. :)

deep personal understanding


I guess that means we ain't soulmates then :)

No, Emiko is spot on. I found mine, married her and am gloriously happy with her.
I think only if yo have thought you were happy and can then discover true happiness - which is what your soulmate brings to the table - can you judge.

I tell you what......it's scary you know, this talk of soulmates.

If they really exist and all that goes with being with one is so beautiful and life completing then for those who think their lives do not match up in any way to this state of affairs it could make you anxious. i.e.....

''Why haven't I met 'the one?' ''

What's wrong with me?

Shall I just chuck this one and spend the rest of my life looking for SM? (Soul Mate)

No, I mean it, it's really scary because does this mean that for those of us who maybe have never experienced this that our lives are only being half lived?

Is this yet one more thing in life we have to aspire to now?

No, not saying I do not 'love' but these 'complete unions' where no doubt exists are unnerving.

Or perhaps I'm an outspoken oddball.

Whoever coined the term 'soulmate' must have been madly in love at that point in time.
It's not getting any smarter out there. You have to come to terms with stupidity, and make it work for you.

Wouldn't you love to know how it turned out? May be throwing chairs on the Jerry Springer show because his wife left him to have a lesbian realtionship with a transvestite nun with a glue-sniffing addiction and a club foot. Ok the club foot thing was really going too far.

Nay, you're not being an oddball, actually I reckon you spot the right definition for this thing, scary!
On another note, my romantic side would like to believe the idea at least can happen to some people if not everybody.
But I tend to believe what k1w1 said by now, there is no such thing.
As it's more about the result of the 2 working together, making compromises, etc. Well after falling madly in love with each other and being an oddball such as creating this term, soulmate! :P
