Can anyone here truly say that they have found their soul mate? If so, how did you know? I know people have said you cant explain, you just know. I understand that but there has to be reason somewhere. And if you have found your soul mate, has your relationship been all gravy or have you had to weather many a storm but your still together.

I don't think anyone can really tell at the start, I think it takes years as we all keep growing and changing through our lives and I guess it depends if we grow and change in the same direction, and then when we are old we can look at each other and think to ourselves yes all we have been through we have kept on track and you know it was all meant to be.

The term "soul mate" has been romanticized in movies so many times that it's taken on a great importance for no reason. There are several definitions of what a soul mate is depending on where in the world you are. Plato described a soul mate as the other half of ones self...indicating that one is not whole until and unless he/she finds that one very special person to make him/her complete. There is also the theory that your soul mate is someone you shared a previous life with but what are the odds of two reincarnated souls being in the same area of the world...around the same age at the same time? Then there's the dictionary definition of two people who are compatable. In my opinion it's a waste of time to search for your "soul mate". Spend your time searching for someone you're compatable with, someone you love and who loves you and leave the soul mate business to the movie porducers.

I don't really believe in soulmates. I believe that it is the people themselves that choose to whom they want to live their lives with.
