    I do! I won't mention who my soulmate is until I have won her heart. It won't be any easy task either!

    No, I don't and I think such expectations lead to a lot of grief.
    It was funny, though, because someone at work once found what she thought would be my soulmate. She'd been seeing a truck parked somewhere new, and based on the stickers and license plate and license plate holder, she thought the owner would be perfect match for me. Turns out, it was my truck [​IMG]
    Anyway, that's the closest I've come to finding a "soul mate". Or maybe I can be completely satisfied and say that I am my own soul mate.

    I am way too jaded to believe in the concept of a "soul-mate". In other words, I can't get a date... [​IMG]

    ...or that their "soulmate" necessarily has to be the person they're married to or shacked up with?

    I do.

    But I beleive it takes time, kind of like good wine, comfortable shoes, and that old leather jacket you just can't get rid of...

    Yes, I have a soul mate, and the next twenty years will be as good as the last.

    Men are taught that one day he'll meet The Right Girl.

    Women are fed the idea of a Price Charming sweeping them off of their feet.

    People like to believe in soulmates because they think it makes them feel better. "Oh sure, my marriage didn't work, but that's just because she wasn't me soulmate."

    Relationships require work. A lot of work. Frankly, I consider it much more optimistic to not believe in soulmates. If you find happiness through the effort and compromise between yourself and a partner, isn't that more rewarding than attributing it to some mystical forces of fate?

    People want someone that's perfect for them.

    1) Impossible

    2) It's less fun that way

    I have a good friend who is an attorney specializing in family law; in other words he's a divorce specialist. Every once in a while he tells me "thank god people believe in soul mates, I need the work."

    That fairly well sums up the whole "soul mate" concept.
