Do you believe that there is ONE person out there destined for you?

We call this anonymous person, our "soulmate". And he is the only person who would be able to truly make you happy, make you feel like you could go on living forever and a day, and he is only one. And then one faithful day... after the long, long wait... he would come into your life in a sudden.This person would make you realize the beauty of life... and love, and make you wonder how odd it is that you two get along so well... almost like you were meant for each other, and then as you get to know the person, you would realize that, yeah, we could be really meant for each other, like how they do it in fairytales... and you would love no one else. My question is... do you believe that there is only one person that would be that compatible to you? Or are there more?

We will NEVER know the answer to this question because we never will know until the day we find that person and live with the same until the day we part from this earth. SO it may be more like a poetic imagery that propels us to higher hopes of finding THAT ONE PERSON meant for us but in actual fact, we may not know this until we have lived long enough with that person ....sad but well maybe true too...ofcourse one condition is that you find that one person who is willing to live with you for the rest of your life ...no matter what happens. :)

Hehe... I agree with you... yes, we will never know that that person we are with is the love of our lives unless we've been with them long enough to realize this. And thats the beauty of it... because you never know, that person might just be that stranger sitting right beside you at this very moment. hehehe ( eer, that is just an example hahaha) Thank you for your response... hehehe have a good day ahead and Blessed be :P hehehe

Like you say, we really will never know until we get there. God has made us to what we are not to be perfect and thus not know everything about the future. Only God knows how our future will be like and we should not pretend to know to much about it either and play as if we know how to read the future. Lets just enjoy the gifts that God gave us all our five senses and everything around us:)) Thanks too for your comment!

Hi yes absolutely fortunately I've met mine though I had to go through a lot of frogs before I found my Prince. Mr Right was just round the corner. We couldn't be more matched my names Melissa and my husbands is Malcolm we get called Mel and Mal. We'd known each other 3 weeks before we got each others initials tattoed on our arms with half a heart that joins together when we put our arms together. Everyone thought we were mad, but we knew we loved each other. We'd finnish each others sentance for one another and say the same things at the same time. My husband lived away from me by the 3rd week he moved to be with me. We moved in together. After 4 months we got married and we've now been married for 4 years and known each other for 5 years. Everyone said we were mad getting married so soon and that it would never last. We're living testimony that it did last. We love each other more now than when we met our love has matured and we make each other feel complete. Before I met my husband I was lonely and miserable. I had bad mental health problems including depression now I feel complete and content. We also have a beautiful 16 month old daughter. It's strange how life turns around.

Hehehe... absolutely, lucky be the person who finds his true love :) Not all of us would be able to find that one exact match... and its a big, big world out there, with so many people who could easily be mistaken for our "soulmate" ,or rather "the one" lols. :) I agree with you completely on this, hehehe... and yes, it is true too that most of the time, because we are so busy or too preoccupied with some other things... we fail to see that that true love of ours is just in front of us so... we let them pass us by without ever knowing. I believe that, somewhere in each of our journeys in this world we would bump into that one person... it is just up to us to recognize them when they come. :) Thank you for your response... hehehehe I really appreciate it. Be well and have a good day hehehe :)

i believe there is one out there. but there is no guarantee to have a fairy tale happily ever after ending. couples do fight over things sometimes let alone husbands and wives. to be realistic, the truth hurts but fantasy may take those burden off for a while. cheers, Gretats!

Yes! hehehe there is no smooth road for love... as some like to put it... hehehe! Couples do get to come accross bumps in the road.. and sometimes they take time to pick themselves up and move on... but thats it! they move on, hehehe most of them do... i think. :) and i hope... hahahaha.. there is no such thing as a perfect marriage... that is what I say... there will always be fights... petty quarrels... disagreements about some little stuff... but at the end of the day, if you two really love each other.. they would kiss... and make up. hahaha.. :P Thank you indeed for your response singlepixel Blessed be... and cheers to our soulmates... may they bring chocolates when they meet us hahaha :)

I believe that you only have one soul mate but that you can love others but not to that extent. They say in our lifetimes we will have seven great loves...hope mine comes soon as I am almost out of loves! LOL

yes yes yes... definitely someone out there is just waiting to be our other half :) i firmly believed in this. i didn't rush then he found me or i found him, whatever. now we are both happy with our married life. he doesn't just complete me but he also brings out the best in me. even those that i am not aware of. he has been my other half who does the things i can not do. he magnifies what i already have and erase what i don't want to see.

I think this all depends on us whether we believe there is someone or not. But as for me, I already give up with that thought. I don't know but fairytales like that doesn't work to me anymore.. cause I don't want to mistake every person that I'm going to love as my real soulmate it will just hurt me more once it ended.

AAaaw, not with that attitude you wont... hehehe you just have to believe. :) Its the one crucial thing... if you believe enough, it will happen. I know it sounds like crazy talk.. but things do happen if you just believe in 'em enough. :) If you love someone... that means you are risking a lot... risking the possibility to get hurt and all that comes with it. :P If you act on love with that perspective... uhm, hehehe... I dont think you will fully experience how to truly love. :P hehehehehe but that is just coming from me... hehehe I am a bit like you too... i have all these ideals about love but I dont get to practice what I preach. . . but im trying. hehehe thank you for your response.. hehe have a good day! and Blessed be hehehehe :)

What exactly is a soulmate? The one person in all the world, in all your life, who is meant to love you and only you.. I understand the draw to the idea of a soulmate, it carries with it a mystical, larger-than-life quality. as if a person were sent to you from the past or future, a divine emissary, cast from the hand of God. Wel I am a reluctant believer in the concept of a soulmate. I think it's an abstract ideal that can often be a distraction to us, keeping our heads in the stars rather on what is real, and full of life in the here and now. If someone gets attached to such an ideal, they are less likely to feel motivated to accept and love the people who are in their lives. They are also less likely to make a loving relationship work. However, I do believe that soulmates can be created. We all can learn to love more fully, forgive imperfections, and in that spirit, give that person, that partner, that spouse, the potential to be a soulmate.

You have a good point there aneekuh... I think it is true to some extent. People might also lose sight of reality when they believe too much about things like this that arent even proven yet. But I think we need the break from reality once in a while.. hehehe Thank you for your response, hehehe Blessed be and have a good day!

Im a firm believer of fate and destiny so my answer would have to be yes. hehe I believe that no matter how long or how far your search for love would be,you would definitely end up with the one who is destined for you and the one you truly deserve.By the way,have you seen the movie "Serendipity"? It talks about fate right?I really love the film.. Take care!

Hehehe... I havent seen the movie yet, but now that you mentioned it... I just might. hehehehe. I believe in fate and destiny too, of the grand scheme of things waiting to transpire. It really is a curious thing isnt it? That in the end... after the long wait and the blind search, you would still end up with the person you have been waiting to fall head over heels with all your life. :) Some just find theirs sooner than the others do. heheheh... It is indeed a wonderful thing to know that you have found the love of your life... and that you would have to search no longer.. :) then you admit to yourself, you are complete.ehehehe Thank you for the response.. hehehe Blessed be and have a good day ahead :)

Hello Gretch... In Physics there is Law of Magnetism, wherein it says something about opposite poles attracts each other... much like in Chinese Culture where there is a need for balance, which is known as the Yin and the Yang... All small things are destined for greatness, it all depends on how much effort they would try to put on themselves to make it more effective... Yes, I admire your belief of finding someone that according to you "would be able to truly make you happy and make you go on living forever and a day"... and Yes, there is someone out there that is destined to be your One, True love... however, Soulmate is a general term... it could be someone you are closely related to,like your parents, your siblings, friends sometimes they could even be your pet... or they could be someone you just met... If you're a young girl that seems to want to have a lovelife much like in the Fairy Tales... then may I suggest you be ready... for Love could take you in a Roller Coaster Ride... -The King of Reason and The Leader of None-

Yes. I think there is a person out there that is perfectly compatible with you, your soul mate. BUT i think true love can exsist with someone else if you work on it. Relationships can't grow and last without both parties working on it.

true. both people involve in a relationship should be willing to work things together. a relationship will not work out if one isn't that prepared to be in the relationship.

well greats,it is an interesting topic .For me personally ,I believe there is only one person that would be compatible to me . My husband and i met ,loved and married each other after a series of hampers,and now we are enjoying our life . we found we had been parts of each other .and we even make a promise that we shall stay together eternity.A lifetime to us seems too short .

yes i do beleive in soulmates.. i beleive that someone somewhere is made for us and only HE brings us together wen only once and its tat time we have to make a move towards it and HE only gives us the hint tat this person is ur soulmate ...ii can say becoz i have seen it in my own family..where my bro got married to a girl whose never stood on the so called "terms and conditions"he put forward for the girl he wanted to marry...and my brother wife wasnt gettin a approval from the guys who went to see her but wen my brother agreed for her she got a tons a rich guys appraval for the marriage wich she eventually rejected...for our small middle class life and she doesnt regrets it ......my brother and her wife are deeply in lov wid each other which makes feels that they knw each other since decades but we all knw that its being only a yr ........that tells me that there are someone somewhere made for u specially

I totally believe tht there is only one person in this whole trinity who is made for u, as the old story goes, couples r like 2 halfs of an apple displaced by God, n when they met they form the whole apple... How u meet u r Soulmate is just a miracle, The realisation tht the person is u r soulmate can come instantly or by couple of years ..at the wat i believ is the person u r married to is the perfect soulmate Allah has sent down to u, Thanx to Allah, my hubby is my perfect soulmate...mashaAllah...Wat i did was just trust in Allmighty n here life is smooth is offcourse bed of roses filled with the aroma of luv, softness of caring, beauty of passion...

I believe that there are only one person that would be compatible to you...But not as compatible as you think because there is no such thing as "perfect relationship"..I know that almost all people end up happy with their love ones but some are not...Happy ending doesn't mean they have a perfect relationship..Even your relationship with your family??CAn you tell me that you have the thing called "perfect relationship"...I don't think so...Because every relationship has a challenge to face,every relationship in the world make a mistake and every relationship in the world has an end...It's in your hand if you'll a happy ending or you'll be liken to kite that fall on the ground,crying...

i never believed in fate nor in destiny before. i thought they were just make believed words to make the world of love sweeter and to make our hopes higher that one day, we'll find our soulmates who are just meant for us. i fell inlove and failed many times in my life already. so, after my last failure, i never thought that there is still someone out there really destined to love me for who i am. and yup. more than a year ago, i met him when i wasn't really looking for love anymore. he made my heart beat again and make me hope higher. it is just a matter of time. there is always someone out there for all of us.

I believe that there is this only one person destined for you.. sometimes you will meet him/her very, very unexpectedly.. no matter how far or impossible, destiny will find its way for you to meet that one special person who is meant for you, believe it or not! =)

We have numerous types of soulmates..including intimate ones (which is what you are talking about so I'll stick with that)..and yes I believe that there is an intimate soulmate for each of us HOWEVER I do know from personal experience that just because you are soulmates doesnt mean you'll be together...I know who my soulmate is and I know that if things had been a little different a life togetehr would have been pure bliss but life circumstances and lessons not learned for each of us prevented that from happening but it doesnt change the fact that we are soulmates...
