Finding your “soulmate” can be a romantic fantasy for many, but how do you know when someone is suitable? We asked psychics to give their take on finding true love, and here’s what they told us.
It’s not just the romance novelists who are fascinated by the prospect of finding a lifetime partner. There’s a lot of money to be made in publishing books about people searching through the vast sea of humanity, trying to find that particular person.
Finding The Right Match
When we asked our panel of psychic readers to reveal their insights into what it takes to find true love, we were expecting some specific answers. After all, these people have been doing this for years, so they should have some unique insight into the matter.
But the advice was surprisingly varied, as you would expect from an eclectic group of people who work with the public, often dealing with sensitive issues.
The most common advice was: “You don’t know until you meet them.” And while the reader may seem like an obvious choice in terms of being able to tell you how to find true love, it’s also true that they’re only human.
So let’s dig a little deeper and see if any other experts had anything more concrete to offer up…
What To Look For In A Potential Mate
While it seems intuitive to think that you should look for someone with similar interests and values, it is not always the case. It’s important to remember that compatibility is only half the story – the other part is chemistry.
As one reader pointed out, “you could be compatible enough for life together, but if you don’t share the same passion, it won’t last long.” She said that sometimes she works with partners with different tastes in music, films, and fashion, yet they still manage to keep things interesting.
Another reader agreed and offered excellent advice: “Look for someone who shares your sense of humor and likes to laugh. That way, you will never run out of things to talk over. But above all, find someone who understands that life is too short to be unhappy, especially when you have kids!”
One reader even suggested that you shouldn’t worry too much about compatibility initially, saying that you must ensure both parties are willing to commit before jumping straight into marriage. They added that the best thing you can do is look for someone with similar goals and ambitions and a healthy respect for tradition.
Finally, another reader said that while personality traits are essential, they aren’t everything: “If one or both of you are looking for something more than just a companion, then you should consider finding a similar type of person. This might mean returning to school or training in a new line of work.”
Psychic Advice From Psychics
We also gave our audience some psychic readings, which they were quick to point out were not as accurate as the advice we received from the readers, who had worked with the public for several decades. One of the participants even said that she didn’t believe the results of her psychic readings were representative of everyone else’s. So, what did the psychics have to say about finding true love?
First, we asked them how they felt about matching couples. While they admitted that it wasn’t as easy as it used to be, some of them thought it was still possible for two people who were meant to be together to find each other.
“The universe has ways of bringing together those who are destined to be together,” said one of the readers. “There are certain signs when finding someone to become your soul mate. Just because someone doesn’t seem to fit the mold of traditional ideas of what a perfect match looks like doesn’t mean that they cannot be perfect.”
Another reader agreed: “I don’t think there is a hard and fast rule regarding a soul mate. I think that it is based entirely on luck and timing.”
Still, others disagreed, adding that a soul mate is usually someone opposite to you and that they’re typically scarce.
But what happens if you and your intended soul mate are exactly alike? Does that automatically spell disaster for the relationship? Not necessarily, according to one reader:
“It depends on how well-matched you are,” he explained. “A lot of times, opposites attract. If you find someone very different from you, then that can cause problems. However, if you find someone whose qualities complement yours, you are much more likely to succeed.”
He suggested that there is no hard and fast rule for matching people – it’s all about finding someone happy to spend time with you and you with them.
