Soulmate or Soulmates?

Do you have a soulmate or many soulmates? Many believe in the notion of one soulmate. Most romance stories that often get you hot and wet talk about that one special connection. That one person. I choose to believe something less conventional.

I believe there are many soulmates that walk on this Earth seeking out their soulmates. I am very sure I missed out on many soulmates in my life, that sweet boy who drew so well in Grade 3. That doe-eyed blushing boy in high school who I did not even talk to but was well aware of his eyes on me back then... We have missed our soulmates because the time was not right. We were too young and going through our personal phase of gawking at popular boys, figuring out the insecurities of our bodies and emotions.

Life is kind, when you miss out on one soulmate in a phase of your life, there will be another one who is seeking the same connection.

Can Friends be Soulmate?

From the bottom of my heart, an absolute yes. My soulmate encounters are often seeded from friendship. It may have been a rekindled friendship or a new friendship formed in a co-living space. It's rare to be instantly swept off your feet by a soulmate since the connection is beyond physical attraction.

1. Unbreakable Bond Between Each Other

Nothing can stand against your friendship

The moment soulmates find their other half; they always find a way to move forward despite many obstacles. They commit to one another early enough and have this mystical ability to follow all through the commitment. Once in a while, both of you may have drifted off due to the business of life but when you reconnect with each other, there's that strong friendship and unbreakable bond that you can sense to fully trust your friend and vice versa. This is a strong indication that your friend is your souldmate.

2. You Challenge Each Other In Your Friendship

Both of you bring out the best in each other

Since both of you see the best in your friendship, you are capable of bringing the best, even though it won’t be an easy task. Your soulmate won’t be happy seeing you resting on your laurels. They will look at you in the best way and become aware of the awesome things that you are capable of doing, making it difficult for your soulmate to just sit by and never let you be your best self. This sign could be the most uncomfortable and find yourselves hiding your heads in the sand. However, in the process of challenging each other, you will become better versions of yourself than if both of you were apart. After a long period, when you reflect back and see what you have built together in your friendship, you will be surprised by how much you have accomplished and gathered throughout the period and will be grateful to each other for pushing each other.

3. You are on the Same Page

Your soulmate sees the world your way

Sometimes soulmates do not agree on everything. Serious differences of opinion may exist in a friendship, but when it comes to important issues in life like core beliefs, priorities, goals and values, you belong to the same page. Your companion sees the world the same way you see it yourself because you understand each other better. This is one of the signs which shows that your friend is the potential soulmate.

4. You Share a Vision of the Future

Soulmates share a life

This is the main sign of determining whether your friend is your potential soulmate. Even if you and your soulmate possess all the other signs but don’t have a shared vision, you may not be together in life. There is that adage that goes, “A bird may love a fish, but where would they live?” Whoever coined that adage knew about soulmates. For instance, you cannot long for a life in the city while your companion dreams of a quiet family life in the village or even in a small town. Probably you will have a hard time in making your friendship work the best way in the long term. You have to agree first on how the life you want to live will look like before you decide to share it. A soulmate who is also your best friend will agree with you on the type and kind of life that both of you will build together.

5. Your Friendship is a Comfort Zone

You feel comfortable around each other

A large number of soulmates will admit that they felt very comfortable when they were around each other, and that was the first sign of soulmate in their friendship. Even in the emotional whirlwind of falling for each other, close friends will say that they have never been secure in opening up to somebody and show their true characters. People in a serious friendship delight each other and great empathy is felt for each other’s vulnerability and flaws. This makes them open up easily to one another for they feel safe and secure having the knowledge that they are loved. The levels of emotional intimacy are very deep for true soulmates involved in a friendship, and it comes more easily than either companion may have believed possible, and this connection makes them come even close to each other than the beginning of their friendship.

6. Respect One Another

Soulmates trust and believe each other

You and your friend do not just love being close to one another, but you realize that there is a deep sense of respect that exists between the two of you. Almost all the time you spend together, you solve conflicts in a unique way of which even couples cannot do. Soulmates do not criticize each other even if they do not agree on a particular matter, a true soulmate will try to be the best companion ever to support the relationship.

7. True Friendship Take Turns to be Strong

You stand together during rough times

In a relationship, both members do experience stress, loss, and heartbreak separately or together in the course of their lives together. When the going gets harder, soulmates will stand together. When one partner is having a hard time, the other comes and supports them. When they are going through a hard time together, they take turns in being strong until the storm is weathered out. Soulmates make a deep commitment which ensures that their relationship is built on a rock in which no wind will blow it away so as they can rely on it no matter what type of challenge bonces on them. Having a friend who is always there for you in all seasons of life is probably your soulmate.

8. Your Soulmate is Your Greatest Fan

You cherish each other

After you find your best friend, you are likely going to find out that you feel a little amazed that somebody so awesome exists in your friendship. This does not mean that soulmates do not see one another’s flaws, but they see each other in the best light. That explains why each person in a friendship feels like having someone in their corner. They celebrate one another’s success and give hope to each other when things are hard to keep on moving. They are very proud of helping and supporting each other in whatever they are involved in.

9. Defend You When You are Not Around

Always there for you

Having a partner who will always have your back, even when you are not aware or not around is a true friend to have in your friendship. It is very easy to be swept up in a petty drama and just nod along with what people around you are always complaining about. Therefore, it means something when you start defending someone's good name simply because of love and due respect to that person. The defense becomes an indication that your friend may be a potential soulmate to you.

10. Your Emotional Language is Understood by the Two of You

Soulmates express emotions to each other

Being in a relationship is not such a smooth road. There are several challenges that evoke emotions. Each individual deals with emotions in different ways, from love to sadness to anger to joy. For instance, doing the dishes and giving a back rub are ways of some people expressing love to their loved ones. The same is applied to anger. Some people may want to talk things out while others will withdraw from conflict. Soulmates are not likely to deal with their emotions the same manner, but they strive to understand their differences and learn to meet their companion in the middle. They develop an emotional shorthand that allows the companions to hear one another and get the best out of their relationship.

11. There is Nothing Better Than Being Together

Your soulmate is the one you enjoy being close with

Soulmates can take time apart, but there is absolutely nothing better than spending time together. It is easy to know and imagine why true friendship partners spend and value their time together above all other things. This is because when you find your soulmate, he or she is your best friend, your biggest cheerleader, your most loyal teammate, your main support and your greatest lover, all in one person. His /her company makes you feel comfortable in the friendship.

12. You Feel Secure Enough Even When You are Apart

Your soulmate gives you space

A deep connection between soulmates allows them to feel secure and comfortable in their relationship, even when they are not together. In fact, one of the soulmate signs is that, no matter what, they know that they belong to each other and that they will always come back to each other and start it again from the point where they stopped. This allows them to take time apart away from each other without panicking and being worried about their friendship or even letting jealousy make them start questioning their connection. Soulmates understand that distance between them is only temporal and can let each other do anything of their choice that is best for their individual lives. This may range from going out separately with friends, traveling for work, or even spending some time living long distances away. Therefore, a soulmate who is likely to be your friend understands that soon you will be together again. They don’t complain that they are alone. They have great hope, and they always wish their partners the best while apart in their relationship.

13. Opening Up About Everything

You and your friend share memories and secrets

When you are in a friendship and then realize that you start sharing your childhood with your friend, it is an indication that you are showing the whole context of who you are. All the things that happened, all the vulnerable places, all the things that are lost forgotten about you and those that people have long forgotten. You ideally put all the cards on the table and you never look at people the same way after you know their truth about life. Your friend can tell you his or her secrets of which they have not ever shared with anybody. These secrets may include traumas or sexual fantasies among others. A friend who opens up to you is likely to be a potential soulmate.

14. Authentic and Comfortable

A genuine friendship.

It is common to have several masks to wear in different situations for one to fit in or get on well. However, the most satisfying thing concerning having a soulmate is that there is no reason or need for pretense at all costs. You just behave entirely like yourself hence creating a feeling that you are showing to each other your true characters in the friendship. Being genuine in this way opens a profound form of intimacy to both of you which is often at your first meeting where you realize this amazing potential exists. A friendship with this form of genuineness are sign that your friend is your soulmate.

15. Your Soulmate Appreciates your Affection

They enjoy every moment of passion

In a perfect relationship, all non-physical connections like having similar interests should be made. But we should not deny the powerful energy that is produced when connecting with your best friend. When you start to recognise your friend as your soulmate, the first tender touch from your special companion can feel magical. Every good moment of passion together is an exploration journey to a better relationship. Therefore, your friend who is a potential soulmate sees your radiance even when you don’t see it yourself. Your special companion does not need to see you in your best attire to be enamored with your beauty.

16. The Sex is Amazing During Dating

A deep connection of intimacy

Since there exists a deep connection, sex with each other is unlike anything else they have ever experienced. The profound love for each other combined with the ability to be vulnerable and honest to one another creating sexual chemistry that is off the charts. While a large number of married people experience great and fulfilling sexual lives, the intensity between friends who are potential soulmates takes it to another level entirely.

17. You Develop an Intense Intuition

You feel like you knew each other for a long time

Often there exists a flash of recognition which occurs especially when you meet a soulmate who will create a true friendship.It is a phenomenon similar to that of manifesting love at first sight which in most cases resembles a powerful sense of familiarity. Therefore, if you feel energized, comfortable and intimate with someone, even if you have just met, there is a possibility that the might be your best friend and the best one for a true friendship.

18. Soulmate Obsession

You always think of your companion even after a breakup

Breakup happens for all sorts of reasons and even soulmates breakup. When you end a relationship, it means that it is time to open a new one with someone else. However, letting go of a soulmate will be difficult. You will consistently remise the good memories of the romance, the soul connection you both felt in the relationship, the scent of them, how your partner made you feel, and the dreams of both of you being close and together.

It is not easy to get over a soulmate connection. Your heart cries out and aches for the lost connection. You might find out that most of your days and nights are filled with thoughts of him/her, the feelings of emptiness, a longing to recapture something of what you previously lost. When these feelings are present in your mind for several months or longer after the breakup, it is high time to have the courage to re-connect with your ex or let go to search for a new soulmate.

"We miss our soulmates because the time was not right."

If the time was not right it means they were (not) your soulmate.

#3 pretty much explains why that is the case.

In order for him/her to be "the one" they would have to see (you) as being "the one". At the very least a "soulmate" is someone who actually wants to be with you! (And vice versa).

The "romantic version of a soulmate" is someone who makes your heart skip a beat, you spend a great deal of time thinking about them when they're not with you, and when they are with you then you try to be on your "best behavior".

On the other hand when you're with your best friend you are (relaxed) and can be your "authentic self". You open up about your dreams and insecurities.

It's usually not until we are older that we realize the latter should be a part of our romantic relationships. We had confused infatuation with true love!

The simple truth is in a world with over {7 Billion people} odds are we all have (several) potential soulmates!

Our society tends to {romanticize the notion of scarcity and luck} when it comes to finding love and relationships. Abundance and having many options seems to kill romance in their eyes.

Many would rather believe a person is born in Chicago and their "soulmate" is lives in Denmark or Hong Kong and by some strange coincidence or chance they cross paths. They need to feel the "magic" or a sense of luck.

In reality couples breakup/get divorced and find new love and remarry all the time! There are lots of "soulmates" and not a "sole-mate".

You determine how many options you have based upon your "must haves list" for choosing a mate. There are infinite possibilities for finding love.

Number 10 is a big one. I have that with my ex still.
