  1. Yes, I find that term kind of annoying since so many people waste their time looking for the perfect partner, which isn’t very realistic! They expect for this person to just magically appear like in a fairy tale and totally ignore people in their lives who would love them unconditionally.

    It isn’t that I don’t believe in true love, but I know it doesn’t always happen like it does in these romantic comedies, with happy endings. I had the opposite expectation in my life, where I just kind of accepted whoever came along. I did this the last time and instead of choosing a woman who could have been my soulmate, I chose the one who asked me out!

    Now I’ll never know, since I believe she may have taken her own life rather than continue suffering! It just weighs heavy on my mind, since I allowed someone else’s opinion to cloud my judgement when I should have taken a chance to be happy for once.

    My own daughter judged her without even knowing her. I’m still confused about what really happened, considering I allowed my life to take a path that I would have normally avoided. I settled for being in a relationship just for the sake of being in one, rather than doing what I wanted to do!

    I’m the one who has to deal with the repercussions in the near future, of finally doing what’s right for me.

    1. Thanks Randy. I think your second to last paragraph explains what can be the norm for some of us. We settle into relationships either because it’s all we have and think it’s all we’re going to have; or someone else is pulling the strings and we don’t stop to question it.

      We like to think we have found our soul mate, but time has shown the opposite. We start off thinking we find true love, to find the relationship ends in divorce or separation.

      I think we’re in love with the idea of being in love, but fail to work at and put the effort in when the going gets tough, particularly when life and stress gets in the way.

  2. I’m a hopeless romantic. I chose the first man who ticked off the boxes of qualities I was looking for. We married and while I thought I was in love, I think I may have been in love with the idea of being married.

    Then I met my 2nd husband, who has the heart of gold (which my first husband lacked) and I knew I found my true love. I do believe there are soul mates, because I now know the difference, because I finally met mine.

    1. Thanks Maria. I think many of us will resonate with you when you say, ‘you may have been in love with the idea of being married.’ How true that is.

      Some of us genuinely want to be married and have done since we were children, others may be running away from their lives and marriage seems a more positive prospective.

      I think you’re right though. We instinctively know when we think we’ve found our soulmate. We just hope those feelings are reciprocated. Most times they are. Two souls merging together as one.

  3. When I think of soulmate, I think of being aligned with someone in a deeply spiritual sense. Joined at the soul with a human being who makes my life quiet but not alone, like bubbles that touch.

    We find love, friendship and companionship, but we rarely find soulmates.

    1. Thanks Tim. I agree. Yes the word ‘soulmate’ describes two people solely connecting through the soul without earthly influences which often get in the way.

      I believe your interpretation of what a soulmate means, is absolutely spot on. When two souls connect, that’s exactly what it is. A soulful and meaningful connection.
