soul mates?

sorry to be like this, but, is there such a thing as a soul mate? i believe i have met mine, and i cannot be with her, so therfore, do soul mates exist?
i find comfort only in the fact that i will have another chance to meet her sooner in the next life.

either way, love is more difficult than life.

NO!... I'm full of SOUL and I KNOW--

That there's no such thing as a soulmate...

And if there is, then may the Devil have my soul, and I really will never to meet my soulmate.

I don't believe in soul mates. You might not ever be with this person, but you might meet someone who is even better suited to you tomorrow. You never know about these things. Keep your chin up, and by all means, try not to pine away for this person. There are too many other good people out there.

I guess it's a semantical distinction for me. I don't believe there is just "1" soulmate, but there are several out there. It honestly depends on your personality temperament really. I took a test that seemingly read me like a book, but then proceeded to tell me that I represent less than 1% of the population (well, I could have told you that ).

You know yourself, but even I believe that there are plenty of people out there for me, maybe not as many as I'd like, but all I want is one anyway.

Cheer up, and, as I've stated so many times lately to people, if you are truly and hopelessly unhappy where you are, move elsewhere that you think you might be happier. The pool of potential mates then gets so much larger! Just a thought...

well, thanks for the replies. she left a year ago tomorrow (long story) and i am just having more difficulty than i thought i would at this point.
i have been with others since, and know that no one makes me feel like she does. so, are we now doomed to spend life with someone that is less than perfect for ourselves? that is a shitty way to live through life.

se7en, where do you live? ellicotville?

Why is love so difficult? They built aeroplanes to conquer oceans for this sort of thing. If you believe that person is the one, what is stopping you? True love I dont think will allow an external factor to keep 2 people apart. Make your choice and overcome it.

Allow me to take a gander.. I do believe that there is this one soulmate with who you were 'made' for, but at the same time I also strongly believe that you cannot always end up with your soulmate.. Sometimes you just can't be with the one you want for some reason or another...It's very hard to make that statement that someone is your 'soulmate', you just have to feel it, but I definitely believe that they do exist.

i am sorry zooropamanda to have brought anyone down with this. just needed to talk about it, and i can't do that with anyone here. i just keep telling myself "i'm not here, this isn't happening" and it's just a moment, this time will pass.

Don't worry. If soul mates exist, you'll get her. Or maybe, she's not your soul mate and THAT'S why you can't have her...think about it...

Zoomanda, I don't know what happened, but now, a couple of days after that post of mine that you replied to, I'm deliriously happy and in love. I'm serious, I've gone from 0 to 200 in just a few days. I felt such a weight being lifted from me the minute I shared my silly thoughts with you and the board, so maybe there's still hope...

It may not last, but what fantastic timing!

It's all romantic and fun to hope in a soulmate, but I don't think they exist. That is, if your definition of a soulmate is someone who was meant for you and you have been searching for each other for aeons to be together.

However, if your definition of a soulmate is more of a kindred spirit i.e. someone whom you share a special link with the instant you meet, then yes, these do exist.

Every romantic interest is not predetermined for you. I think it is more a mixture of (1) chance & timing; and (2) what you make of it. So, whether you feel your relationship with one person seems more passionate than another one that is lukewarm, the bottomline is this: it doesn't mean that the first person was meant for you more than the second one was. What you have to do now is simply decide whether you would be contented with, say, a lukewarm but steady relationship or a passionate but painful relationship. It's ultimately up to you to decide which kind of person is best for you. So, I'd advise to not whinge or lament over the fact that you are 'star-crossed' (I'm not referring to anyone here specifically of course) but rather meet more people and make a decision. Life isn't against you..
