  • "Soul mate" is more romance than reality. Meeting, for the first time, the person who is to become your partner is usually just like meeting anyone else: maybe you get on with them, maybe you don't, but the response is usually fairly neutral. My mother didn't particularly like my father the first time they met. I didn't feel one way or the other about my wife when I first met her; she was just the new neighbour who moved in across the street. Some believe in 'love at first sight', but I have only met one or two couples who have laid claim to that old story. Real life is more prosaic than it is normally portrayed. It doesn't sound as romantic, though, which is why it doesn't play as well. An individual meets relatively few people who are admitted to their circle of friends. From this small group is drawn their choice for a life partner. There may be more than one choice, but only one who responds in kind. There are millions of potential candidates that one will never meet. Within that large group are many who have the potential to become one's life partner. But we never have the opportunity to meet them. And once we have a partner, we stop looking (some don't, but that's another story). Eventually, most people find someone they settle down with. That person may be your "soul mate", but there are many more "soul mates" out there. We don't have the opportunity to meet and examine everyone, so we make our choices among those who are available and are interested.
  • Simply put. It feels like you are walking on air :-)
  • When I first met mine I was just completely intregued by her beauty (and to be fair I was intregued by the beauty of many women, being the 21 year old male that I was) it was only after a couple of years of push and pull between us that we came to an understanding, a realization really, that a personal devotion to the other persons happiness is what ultimately leads to internal happiness. This is the point I realized i had found my "soul mate". This is the understanding that works for us, you and your soul mate may likely be different, as it is the reason why not all souls are compatable. I do agree with another point in another answer, once we find a suitable mate we stop looking for another, I don't buy into the "needle in the haystack" theory of one and only one "soul mate", compatable souls can be just friends, you meet them ocasionally, even after you find your "soul mate".
  • Being married to the same person for 40 years, i am very happy to answer this question. my wife was a model for bobbie brooks fashions. i spotted her and she spotted me. we both agree, that our eye contact was like the old black and white movie, where two trains collide, head-on. that day, in 1965, was the beginning of a soul mate connection that keeps growing stronger everyday. our eyes saw the inner soul of each other. its been there ever since. and, like the song says we're "still crazy, after all these years". thanks, cupid!
  • Like a grapefruit sunset
  • For me it felt like I was finally home, like the part of me that had been missing was finally filled. I had no doubts.
  • It feels like meeting any other person you might be attracted to for whatever reason (and that doesn't necessarily mean you are physically attracted to them at first)...but then something happens later as you've gotten to know them..it feels like "coming home".
  • Like everything around you stands still and the air thickens. We are alone even in a room full of people. It is as if their eyes can see into the very depths of your soul. It happened to me and he knew as well but we cannot be together because of prior attachments. I am not sure if anyone out there has ever had pre-cognative dreams but I also dreamt of this person several times before I met him. I could only see his eyes and I would recap it saying, "I always dream of this man but I don't know who he is..." Well I know now! I think of him everyday and I have seen him since and I know he can feel the kinetic energy still. Another strange hint that you have met your soul mate is a tender caring that even if you do not end up with this person you are still constantly concerned about their safety and happiness even if it does not directly affect the course of events in your own immediate life. I guess only time will tell if the winds of fate will draw us together. I can only pray.
  • It feels like you've been wandering in an empty city for all your life, and suddenly there's another human being. Butterflies al over (because the bloodflow is diverted to you sexual organs...nothing romantic about it). When this grows into becomming real love instead of a fling, you both found a soulmate. Missing each other and being jealous are good signs. Although small fights might occur, it's just comunication in order to learn about each others limits. As long as you keep talking to each other without secrets, there's no need to worry. Since you both change in life, there's no guarantee you'll be compatible forever. Absolute centainty is only there when you are still together at the time you step into the coffin...
  • It is the most incredible experience you will ever have. No other feeling in the world comes close to it. It's as if whatever you were searching for is over. You feel completely fullfilled and at peace. Nothing irritates you or frustrates you. You feel pure happiness, joy and you wish that joy upon everyone around you, even the people you absolutely hate. It's very different from physical attraction or infatuation. The attraction is so deep, it's from the inside out. Generally people are first physically attracted to someone and then they emotionally bond. Well the soulmate attraction is reverse. First you instantly bond with the person on an emotional level and then become physically attracted to that person because of that bond.
  • There's just a connection. And you can't explain it. Its like something about that person attracts you to them and you wanna to talk to them endlessly.
  • well it seems like u have known the person for the longest time...and it feels weird.
  • A chemical reaction in the old grey matter...
  • I would have no clue
  • well, in all respect, when you meet the person who you're meant to love, by chance, not neccessarily by destiny, you are attracted to him or her at first sight, both to their physical appearance and who they are, their personality. it isn't that amazing, that crazy, but you will notice..
  • like i can finaly stop searching, like iam walking on thin air, my heart beats faster, my breath stops short, there is a lump in my throut, a knot in my stomack yet it is the most wounderfull feeling in the world.
  • Finding your soulmate does not necessarily mean "love at first sight," but if not then, then at least it happens in the first few moments. Sometimes your mind is not clear and your heart is not open to be able to see your soulmate. Yet, if you are lucky, when you do find them, then it makes you feel like a child again. You want to hold their hand, as if that is all you need. They may not even be the "ideal" you are usually attracted to, yet you are drawn to them in a way you both can not understand. You have to learn more about them, and feel like you have known them all your life. You accept them immediately, faults and all, and you absolutely trust them completely with your heart, even if your mind fights it. When I met mine, I didn't feel like I was getting to know him, but I felt as if I was just remembering. Yet I always knew it was love. Now those feelings are growing into understanding, and I await the time where we can both let go...and accept eachother's love.
  • It will feel like you have already met and known each other forever and you will feel the love.
  • like you just won the lottery.....
  • It feels amazing, at first so scarey to feel so much so soon, you may fight it and that can cause turbulence whilst you both adjust to this new level of deep inner connection, outer magnetic attraction and intoxicating euphoric chemistry, on all levels when you are with this person you will feel, safe, right, at ease, like everything is easy, everything.like they have known you for lifetimes without even needing words or the usual getting to know you level of conversation. the 'knowing' eachother is umspoken and and on a soul level. it will feel like the times you thought you had been in love before where not at all love when you meet this person. when you look in eachothers eyes you will see right into echothers core self, you will see what they are thinking and it will be what you are thinking and vice versa. like they are you opposite sex version of youreslf with all the behaviours you need to correct in yourslef to become stronger and happier on top of that. they will have life lessons for you that will raise your energy levels if you know how to look, so together you complete eachother. as if it was always this way. You may be in tune, think of them and they call you etc etc. it will electric, at peace, easy, like coming home. You may second guess it at first as it is so strong you may not recognize what is happening and your mind will attempt to rationalize the wealth of love that floods in. the love will heal you,balance you as if breathing for the first time. it's the most beautiful and pure thing in the world. total acceptance, trust and no control on eachother as you resonate equaly and instictively. cherishing eachother on every level effortlessly. you will think of them all the time and miss them instanly every meeting. all of this within the first week is highly likley! peace, love & light xox
  • I have not met him yet but I feel him near me....when I think about him I feel calm and even though we have not yet met, I trust that we will one day soon. It is a very powerful feeling...
  • Pretty amazing!!!!
  • Feels like you've known him/her before, perhaps in some distant past lives you two have created a bond so strong but only to be broken by sickness and death and this time around is your second chance to resume where you left off.
  • just like anyone else. after the connection it's special
  • You wont know at first there your soul mate But once you found out they are, You would feel damn special
  • It will feel...like you just entered a dream? (A very good dream might I add)
  • It is generally a feeling of familiarity and closeness. There were subtle differences with each of the seven I have encountered so far. (Yes, each and every one is a soul mate by any definition you want to use). You are likely to encounter more than one soul mate in your lifetime. We live far longer now than we used to.
  • Your body is overwhelmed with feelings that are unexplainable. Your unsure what to think... Your Heart Beats faster and your blood feels like it's flowing rapidly through your body, than it ever has before. You have goose bumps and your whole body tingles as if it fell asleep. "You feel as if you've known that person forever,like they've always been with you". Your Comfort level is unbeleiveable.. In an instant you can feel more happinness than you've ever felt or ever thought you could feel in a lifetime. The best of happiness and love happens when least expected. I have always said that you know when it's true love when you can hold that persons had and feel the emotions running through it, or when your just there, in that moment and you know that's where you've always belonged, and always will.. So if your in this situation and don't know what to do, Open your eyes and realize that this is what was ment for you, this is the person you were born for, this is your destiny, your life. I know that each of you can feel all that is written, your just not sure what to do with those feelings.. You know what to do, from the moment you felt it, you've known, it was right. Thank You for taking the time to read this, I wish each and everyone of you Love and Happiness! You've gotten the answer you came here for, Don't let it slip through your fingers... Sincerly Robert
  • in my opinion, i don't believe in soul mates. there are dozens of ppl out in this world you can click with and start a relationship with. why narrow it down to just one person in several billion?
  • LOL Well.. I like to call it the glock pepper phenomenon; for the lack of a better word. I'll explain it :) Say you eat some extremely hot peppers and your mouth starts burning; suddenly you find yourself in the need to have something cold in your mouth! You desperately look for water, or ice cream, or any sort of neutralizer but you can't find anything. Your mouth is still burning, getting worse by the second. Suddenly, your eyes fall on a .45 Glock. Being the only piece of metal nearby, it seems like a convenient option, right? So without thinking about it, in the heat of the moment, you stick that barrel in your mouth :) And that's what it feels like, when you meet your soul mate. Of course, we almost always squeeze the trigger lol
  • Sounds tacky, but like someone took your breath away. Happened to me!
  • Just like it did when I met my wife, I took one look and my heart was her's!
  • Like old friends finally getting together after a long time.
  • it feels great..its like the feeling you get when you've finally found that something you've been looking for for a long time.
  • heart is shacking
  • I'd wait til we were back at my place before I let her feel it
  • I would be in luck and completely sane.
  • The whole world will seem unknown to me except her.
  • I didnt know he was my soul mate so it felt like meeting anyone, the first time I kissed him however, my lips tingled for about 40 minutes afterwards.
  • Haha, oh this takes me back. I can recall twice on the first day we spent together we'd have a conversation that would taper off into silence and we'd both just be looking at each other and feel a jolt. ... like being electrocuted but without any pain. I've never told anyone that before, it's crazy but it's true.
  • Who knows.
  • It feels the way you have always imagined it would. Like coming home, only to a home you've never known before. They are new and very familiar at the same time, and they fill you up, and quench your soul in way nobody ever has before. You find yourself wondering what this feeling is...this feeling of such absolute and complete acceptance of the other person, and you wonder if this is what it feels like to fall in love. There is no question in your mind of how you feel for this person, they just fit into you like a piece of a puzzle....and it feels like you've waited a long long time for them to come into your life.
  • I have met at least 3 soul mates so far in my life. One of them told me we would end up being married and our first child would be a boy. I thought he was crazy because this was 10 minutes after we first met. We did get married and 3 years after being together we indeed had a baby boy. With all 3, I knew within moments of our first meeting that I would be in relationship with them. It was a really powerful deep feeling. It scared me and excited me at the same time, but I just went with it. I didn't understand the purpose of our meeting at that time in my life. Years later I get it. Your soul mate is someone who comes to teach you about yourself. The relationship will be very intense, physically, emotionally, mentally and spirtually. They trigger things in you that force you to look at yourself . Things you don't see and need to work on. It won't necessarly be an easy relationship because it can be extremly testing. Once you've met a soulmate your life will never be the same again.
  • well it feels like the secrets that i tell him about me are catching up with an old friend. like i've known him before but not in this lifetime. when he holds me it feels like i could melt into him. when we make love there is nothing in the world and time stands perfectly still. he catches my tears before they fall. every piece of me was made for a piece of him. where i am strong i help him and vice versa. that the fights we do have we make our points and instantly find solutions because there is so much time we have to make up for...
  • You just know it!!
  • You know within one minute of meeting that you will be with him for the rest of your life. You feel love at first sight, and you see his very soul through a glance in his eyes. People around the room stare, as they notice your amazing energy. It's as if the final piece of the puzzle was placed..You would say, "yes" if he asked you to marry him at that very second. I've been praying for him my entire life. 2 Minnesota natives and soulmates find each other in Florida. I feel like we will write the book.
  • I will keep you updated once I meet her.
  • Is there such a thing as one's soul-mate? I sure hope so!
  • I'm still waiting but when I do I'll come back and drop you a line or two.
  • don't know
  • When i met my soul mate online inbetween 100s of guys he was the one i gave my msn to, we were talking for 4 hrs that night and i was feeling as if "i knew this guy for ages" day by day we got closer and closer and one day we met face to face, it was like out of this world, for a sec everything around me stoped it was all like a dream, its funny bc we all come across 10 or 20 guys/ girls a day but we dont feel anything but when your soul mate comes along you dont have time to talk or think, your both lost in each other, time goes by in secs.
  • Buy a new matching pair of laces and maybe go out dancing with them (provided you also found a 'heel mate' too)? ;-)
