Do you believe in soulmates? That there is a perfect half, destined to complete every person out there? Have you found yours? Do you think that there is more than one person for you?

I have no idea if there is a 'soulmate' for everyone. Between my 1st and 2nd marriages (10 years), I had pretty much given up on the idea of a 'life partner'. For that 10 years I was a serial monogamist with 5 women. All were enjoyable - but ran their course.

It wasn't until I stopped looking, that I found my 'soulmate'. And in many ways we complement and complete each other.

Do I think there is more than 1 person in the world who could fill that role? At one time I would have said yes - but there is no one who could come near the closeness and intimacy that I now have - so as with many things, my views have changed. If I were a politician I would surely be labeled a 'flip-flopper'!

The best of luck to you as you explore your future. Don't forget to enjoy the journey. Try not to expect too much from relationships - the pressure to perform - or deliver can kill relationships. Let them evolve - they will either thrive or die - but you can still have a lot of enjoyment from the experiences.

I don't see any reason as to how this could be possible, so no.

I believe you can have chemistry (whatever that means) with someone, and work hard at the relationship, and in that way make them your own soulmate.

I think there is more than one person out there who i'd be suited with. But it's a matter of choosing one and making it work.

I think soulmates do exist, but the chances of ever meeting your other half are minimal. I don't think I will ever find mine.

I think that with a population on the earth of 7 billion and rising there is certainly more than one person that would probably be perfect for you. I am not half of a person, I am a whole one and I don't need someone to complete me. I think the idea of a soulmate is over-sentimental crap and pushes people to have unrealistic expectations of what a relationship really is.

That sounded really negative oops sorry

I don't know about everybody, but I absolutely can't not believe that some of us do (me and my partner -- so much so that it's scary!) I mean, I'm sure everyone has that person they were meant to be with, I just don't know that I can say everyone will end up with a soul mate, but it's hard not to believe that we all have that person who we click with like nobody else on earth. My partner and I talk about how much we must've been meant for each other a lot. Everything about us except maybe 1-2 things just fit perfectly. As he recently said, we go together like peanut butter and bacon.... I prefer to say like peanut butter and chocolate (peanut butter balls! LOL)

I believe many people can fit that role. I don't think that out of 7 billion people on the planet, there's one that is the absolute perfect person for you, and no one can compare. The odds of meeting that person would be far too little.

I agree with this.

I don't believe in soul mates. To me, that would mean if you never met "the one" you could never be happy. I think there are lots of relationship possibilites for everyone. The trick is to pick a good one and then together build that relationship into something spectacular.

Having said that, my husband is a bit miffed that I don't see him as my soul mate.

you really summed up how i feel very well.
Because of the current world population, the idea that there is one "perfect" someone out there is just silly to me. I'm a firm believer that you can fall in love multiple times with many different people, and that love will be different every time with every unique individual.
I also agree that people are people, and i am, not half a person who needs to seek another half. The best way this was explained to me was by a close friend who said, "a half a person is like a C, when you find another half (another C) you become a circle, making a whole. or you could be your own circle and find another circle, and the two of you together will create the infinity symbol." I would much rather be one to find another "whole/circle" person.

I don't believe in soulmates, personally, but I do love the idea. It's terribly romantic, I'm just far too much of a scientist to think that it works that way. I actually came to this thread not to be a downer, though, but because I want to share this. I think that it's absolutely fantastic.

I've been extraordinarily lucky to have found THREE women I would gladly have spent the rest of my life with, and one with whom I'm actually doing it.

I absolutely believe there are multiple "perfect" (or at least, close enough to perfect) matches for each of us out there. One professor in a Intimate Relationships class I took claimed that there were something like 10,000 "soulmates" on the planet for the average person. That was based on analysis of a number of studies. If that's correct, with 7 billion people on earth, that would mean soulmates are, on average, on in 700,000. Those are pretty long odds!

It definitely feels like hitting the jackpot when you do meet someone like that.

No. "Soulmate" carries too much expectation on a partner who is merely human.

Despite being a classic INFJ Princess-type (Cinderella? Snow White? Sleeping Beauty? All INFJ's), I've had enough experience with reality to understand that the universe does not run on romantic ideals.

The only thing I wanted was an emotionally healthy lifemate whom I was comfortably compatible with, who had his own mind and life outside the relationship.

C turned out exactly like that, and I'm delighted that I have the Doctor instead of a fairy-tale prince.
