Soul mates?

Do you really believe in soul mates? Do you think there is truly someone out there for everyone? In times where the divorce rate is skyrocketing- does the concept of soul mates still exist and people are not committed and rush to divorce? Or is there really no such thing?

I think I do. How else could you explain getting married to one and finding out years later that you are totally not meant for each other? It may just mean that the soul mate is still out there. One could be unlucky enough to live their whole lives not finding their perfect match. Lucky are the ones that have already found theirs. The romantic side in me believes it so.

hi 1indsay! i used to read a lot about soulmates and i used these guidelines whenever i met a person i like. after an extensive looking out for the right one, that i agree with you to be quite synonymous to 'soulmate', i finally decided to let things happen/flow. i've told myself to face the reality. else, it'll take my whole lifetime finding the one. with the divorce/separation rates now, it is very difficult to find the right one..an extreme rare chance..you will be heavenly lucky, if you have or did. i've read that in this world, a man and a woman should come together, fuse as one soul..sparks like match. they are soulmates. if they don't find each other and they die..then their souls split in 2 each which makes 4. these 4 are soulmates and they really have to find each other..for communion. they may meet others and marry but, still feelings of restlessness and continuing search are still there down in their selves. this is where divorce/separation may come in. some said, when you meet someone you got those feelings of deja vu..like you've known that person in ages somewhere that cannot just be explained instantly...words are never a question between them...lights radiated within them. when you marry, it doesn't always mean that person is your soulmate...all the same, same can be said to be your soulmate. in the first place, you marry the person! meaning, you have something in him/her that you feel right... as years go by, situations change and feelings may diminish gradually.. and you may say it is 'enough'. you sought out again for the right one and that person comes. finally, you will say 'this is the ONE'! yes, that person is another soulmate. you have felt right again with that new person. that is because, souls have been multiplied over generations. you can find your soulmates at one time or the other..else, not on that time. souls keep on finding each other over time... your partner can be your soulmate as well as having another 1 or 2 friends as your other soulmates. the true friends you have can be your soulmates either male or female)... in this modern world, most people don't get time to look into each person as their potential soulmates.. instead categorize as potential partners in life... this is fact! and we have to live in the present.. though, i am still a deeply romantically inclined person when it comes to life partner and i have always believed of settling with the right one. but, i too have to do reality check as well. first, be the RIGHT person.. be the ONE.. and you will eventually find the RIGHT and the ONE along.. or let the person you strongly like be the ONE and RIGHT... finding the said person is also finding your soulmate. ;-)
