I used to think that our partner is our soul mate. But not anymore. I learn that even people who claimed their husbands or wives as their soul mates got divorced. Meaning to me, we are not necessarily find our soul mate as our partner. More over, I learn that soul mate could be your friend, your parents, your sisters or brothers. It could be anyone besides your partner. Someone that you really CLICKED. It doesn't mean that you don't find anything with your partner, but I believe that you must know how it feels when you find someone is more click with you rather than your partner. It also doesn't mean that we don't love our partner but just different, to have someone that can fully understand how we feels. Of course, some are just lucky to find and to have their partners as their soul mates.

Oh no no no. Your partner (in a relationship) may not necessarily be your soulmate. There is this other person out there who will connect with you instantly and understand you so well. You'll share a love so deep and so strong.

Yeah, I agree to that. I think our partner would not be necessarily our soul mate. Maybe our soul mate could be out there. Near of far, we don't know.

I don't think a person has just one soulmate in their lives, but many. People change as they grow, and so what matches their soul when they are young, may not match 10 years later. This is probably why so many divorced couples felt they were soulmates when they got married. When they got married, their souls may have been very compatible, however 5, 10, 15 or more years later, they aren't the same person, and their souls may no longer be as compatible. I also think there are many soulmates who could not stand to be married to each other. I don't think being a soulmate has so much to do with love, as with compatible personalities.

So you believe in not just a single soul mate? Well, I don't agree with you're saying because I believe there should be only one soul mate in everybody's life. Only that we are not necessarily to meet them as we expected as a partner in a relationship. Regarding stages in our life, I don't know whether we realized that we have found our soul mate in our earliest years. Maybe some special people would know, maybe. Actually finding soul mate is not like to find someone now and then we don't feel like it and we look for another soul mate. It is not soul mate then. Like it is SOUL MATE, you only have one soul, then it should be one soul mate for you. Don't you think so?
