How Do I Know That I’ve Met My Soulmate?
In a perfect world, we’d all easily find who we’re meant to be with and ride off into the sunset together. In reality, though, finding the true love of your life is easier said than done. If it was easy, we’d all be happily partnered up all the time.
Even when you find someone, how are you supposed to know if they are really your soulmate? One thing’s for sure: there’s more to it than just physical attraction. In fact, physical attraction is what initially draws people together, but it’s not enough.
Read on for five undeniable signs that you’ve found your soulmate.
You Like the Person You Are When Your Partner is Near
A soulmate is someone who brings out the best version of you whenever they are near. Although it’s true that people tend to be on their best behavior in the early stages of a relationship, this is more of an act than anything. When you are truly with the one who’s meant for you, you naturally and sincerely want to be the best person that you can be.
What is it about being with the right person that makes you like yourself so much more? A soulmate sees you for who you are and loves you no matter what. This is reflected back at you when interacting with them, and it helps you to see yourself in a newer, more flattering light.
When someone genuinely loves you to the core of their being, the love that they feel for you is infectious. At the same time, you innately feel the same love for your soulmate, and your desire to shower them with it helps you to see yourself as the loving, caring person who you are.
Can Talk About Anything With Each Other
With a true soulmate, no topic of conversation is off-limits. Most people put up walls in the early stages of dating to protect themselves and to feel less vulnerable. Early on, it is even prudent to be a bit guarded. When true love blossoms, however, those walls come tumbling down.
You’ll know that you’ve met your soulmate when you never have to hesitate before expressing anything to them. Whether positive or negative, you won’t feel the slightest apprehension about sharing something with your partner because you know that there’s absolutely nothing that they could ever say to change how you feel. You will innately know that the same thing applies to them.
Happily, the ability to talk about anything with a soulmate helps to strengthen the relationship further. Even soulmates hit bumps in the road but being willing to openly discuss issues when they arise will help you to weather any storm together. Instead of holding things inside, letting them fester, and feeling stressed and miserable, you’ll always feel free, happy, and easy with the true love of your life.
The Timing Is Right
In books and movies, star-crossed lovers often have to overcome huge obstacles in their personal lives to make their relationships work. Romantic though that may be, it’s not how things typically play out. True soulmates find happiness not only because they bond so well but because they come into one another’s lives at the right time.
The best partners and soulmates share similar goals in life. To strive toward those goals in a realistic way, both people need to be in the same place in life when they begin a relationship. You will know that you’ve met the right person when they arrive in your life at the right time — and when they are in the same approximate stage of life as you.
Even if you click incredibly well with someone, your romance won’t go anywhere if, say, you’re ready to start a family and they are just launching their career. You might meet someone amazing, but if they are unavailable due to a relationship or for some other reason, they can’t really be your soulmate.
You Happily Make Sacrifices for Their Sake
Another sign that you’ve found your true soulmate is that you are willing to put your desires after theirs. This isn’t to say that you cater to their every whim at the expense of your own happiness; rather, it means that their happiness matters so much to you that you are willing to put your desires on the back burner for them.
You’ll know that you’re with the right person when you feel a genuine sense of joy in giving something up to make things better for them. For example, you might have been dreaming all day about laying around lazily after work only to learn that your partner needs help with something. Instead of feeling put out, you happily lend a hand. After all, they’d do the same for you!
Even Doing Nothing Together Is a Blast
Finally, a true soulmate is someone with whom you can feel comfortable and happy even without constant excitement. The death knell for so many relationships comes when the initial thrill of early dating wanes. Most couples can’t keep up the frenetic pace of fun nights out, and when the activities die down, their true colors emerge.
Soulmates, on the other hand, can be together and feel content even when doing incredibly mundane things. Just being in each other’s presence is enough. You will know that you have met your soulmate when you want the other person around even when things are boring and quiet. In fact, you will voluntarily offer to be with the person during such times.
A soulmate is someone who makes you feel complete in all areas of your life. There is no need for constant excitement when you’re with the right person. In fact, you will even find that the most special times are the ones where it’s just you and them quietly sipping coffee and enjoying a relaxing morning. Even if your only interaction is to occasionally lock eyes and smile, you’ll find that it’s more than enough — and better than anything else that you have ever experienced.
