How do you know if someone is your soul mate ?
• United States
I don't think a couple starts off being "soul mates." I think if it happens, it takes many years of commitment, dedication, patience, and plain old hard work, along with the fun and romance. My husband and I are soul mates, but it took us a long time to become that.
I don't believe in soul mates, so I don't really know. I think it takes time, because all crushes and feelings are alike. Then if you spend time together for many years, you break up but always come back together, then maybe that person is your soul mate.
Like all roads lead to Rome, there can be different ways of finding your soul mate. Some are straight ..like bang you just know it. Others are twisted. And yet others are long drawn. You don't get to choose. There will be a moment you'd just know this is the right thing to do.
