You’ve been told that everyone has a soulmate. Since then, you’ve been looking for this person who claims to be your ultimate life partner, but they are nowhere to be found. It’s either that or you have already found your soulmate, but you haven’t been able to identify them as such yet. Perhaps you are familiar with the word but you are a bit confused about what a soulmate really is. If this is a ‘yes’ for you, let’s get things right.
According to American writer Richard Bach, your soulmate is someone who shares your deepest longing and sense of direction. A soulmate is the person who completes you; with whom you feel you have a deep connection, and to whom you are unexplainably drawn to be in a relationship with.
In other words, a soulmate is a person with whom you share an honest and sincere connection that leads to a strong and healthy relationship. Contrary to popular belief, a soulmate has a lot of faces, as it’s possible to be your friend, a member of your family, your lover or life partner. Either way, a soulmate is indeed your other half; a person who can help you become better and makes your time on Earth a truthful and more enjoyable experience.
So, if you are wondering whether you have found your soulmate or not, check out these ten signs to help you out:

3. You share the same life goals
Being a soulmate for someone means walking along with them in life. This also means sharing the same goals in life. It is highly possible that you have the same ethics and values and, despite the fact that you have a different way of reaching these goals, you both want the same things out life.
4. You don’t feel the need to be alone
You know you have met your soulmate if you cherish the time you spend together with that person. If you could be around them 24/7, you would since you don’t feel the need to be alone when you are with them. On the other hand, you do appreciate the time when you are not together and you respect each other’s boundaries which is fundamental to a healthy relationship.
5. You are not jealous of the other person
If you are not jealous of the other person, it means that you have reached a mutual understanding. You and your soulmate know what to expect from each other and you regard one another as key priorities in life. You may be afraid of losing them but you know that they won’t go away easily and you trust them completely.
6. You complete each other
It’s a fact: opposites do attract. You an introvert and the other person is an extrovert. You know the other person is your soulmate if you complete each other’s sentences and you ‘fill in the blanks’. This person will be someone who can understand you but also challenges you to become better. You will find that your differences are what bring you two together in the first place.
7. You are stress-free when you are together
When you are around your soulmate, the world stops spinning, your worries disappear, and everything seems to be much simpler. After a bad day, you know that you will get to talk to that person who matters the most to you, and you will forget all that happened that made you sad.
8. You respect the other person’s differences
Despite the fact that you are soulmates, that doesn’t mean you have the same viewpoints in life. Most of the time, it’s the exact opposite; this is the reason why you feel this person completes you, anyway. In this sense, you’ve come to appreciate each other and acknowledge the fact that you have different opinions on life, but that’s okay because it helps you learn new, exciting things and become a better person.
9. You know each other’s flaws
Everyone has their own weaknesses. You know each other’s flaws and, although they sometimes annoy you, you don’t let it ruin your relationship. Instead, you work with them so that they can become better, and you always focus on the positive side of things. For example, your soulmate may be stubborn but this actually helps them make better decisions and you get to learn from that in return.
10. You can talk about anything
Your conversations with your soulmate are endless. You keep in touch and talk to each other every day, and you spend many hours on the phone talking about pretty much anything that comes to mind.
