For some, searching for their soul mate can be arduous and frustrating. But what if you could know in advance when that special someone is out there waiting to meet you? Here are six signs your soul mate may already be on their way.
1) The One That Got Away
If you’ve ever had a relationship that didn’t work out, chances are good it will happen again. And while this may be true of all relationships, it’s more likely that something went wrong with yours. What did you do differently? Were things just too different from one another?
It’s also possible that you weren’t compatible with the person who got away. And while you might think that they were perfect for you, perhaps they were just not right for you at the time. Maybe you were both trying too hard to make everything work and resenting each other after you split up.
How can you tell whether you’re ready for love again? Perhaps you should take a few lessons from the animal kingdom. While animals usually don’t get together unless they are genetically suited, they often still try very hard to make things work when they aren’t exactly right for each other. So, even though it probably won’t end well, you might as well give it your best shot.
2) A Long-Term Relationship Is Inevitable.
As humans, we tend to gravitate toward people who are similar to us. This makes sense because people with similar life experiences tend to share similar interests, values, and beliefs. So, if you are looking to start a committed relationship, the odds are good that you want someone who has a lot in common with you. People who are attracted to others who are similarly “compatible” are more likely to stay together over the long term than those who pair off with people who have nothing much in common with them.
But what does this mean for you? If you’re single, you should probably keep your social circle small. Try to hang around people similar to you, and avoid going out into the world alone. If you’re in a relationship, you’ll need your partner’s input since you both need to be on the same page to make things work.
3) It’s Not Just About Looks.
You may have heard of the expression “opposites attract.” There seems to be something to this saying because opposite people seem to find each other rather attractive.
While looks certainly play a role in attraction, many people are pleased to be married to someone who doesn’t look like them. And you can be sure that your soul mate will be no exception.
The important thing to remember is that looks are just part of the equation. Personality traits such as humor, values, intelligence, honesty, compassion, and so forth all play a major role in forming a lasting and fulfilling relationship. And while personality traits are less obvious, they can make a big difference between two people staying together or splitting up.
4) They Are Always On My Mind.
In a healthy relationship, you shouldn’t spend all your waking moments thinking about your mate. You should check in on them every once in a while to ensure they’re doing okay. But if you are constantly thinking about your partner, then something probably isn’t quite right.
When you’re focused on someone else, you might miss out on opportunities to do things that would benefit you in the long run. For instance, when you’re preoccupied with romance, you might feel tempted to skip your job interview or turn down a promotion at work. This may not matter a whole lot now, but it will come back to bite you later.
If you’re spending too much time thinking about your soul mate (or anyone else), it might be time to reevaluate your priorities. Make sure you’re putting yourself first before you put your loved ones first. After all, they need space too. And if you’re not careful, you might resent them for taking up so much of your precious energy.
5) I Can’t Get Them Off Of Me.
Have you ever been in a relationship where you wanted to jump out of bed each morning and couldn’t wait to see your lover? Or maybe you felt like you couldn’t live without your spouse or significant other. These are signs that your soul mate is close by, and you should pay attention!
Now, it’s not necessarily a bad thing that you feel excited or passionate about your partner. But if it feels like you can’t function properly without them, then there’s a chance that they are becoming more important than anything else in your life.
That’s why it’s important to set aside time for other activities besides your relationship. You should also schedule dates with friends or family instead of relying on your mate to fill the void whenever you go out. Doing this allows you to feel better about yourself and your partner simultaneously.
6) He Knows Everything About Her.
If you’re dating someone new, chances are good that you know very little about them. After all, you’ve never met them before. So, how can you possibly know enough to decide whether or not you’re compatible?
Well, if you’ve dated many people in the past, you likely have learned a few things about your partners. For example, you might have realized that one of your exes cheated on you or had a drinking problem. Or, you might have found out that your current partner used to date someone else.
Regardless of how you discovered these things, it’s important to realize that you’re not the only one who knows this information. And while you don’t necessarily have to tell your new partner everything you know, you should be open and honest about your previous relationships. If you were hurt in the past, you should try to forgive and forget, especially if your current partner has apologized for hurting you.
What Other Signs Should We Look For?
Many other signs indicate your soul mate is on its way. For example, if your current relationship makes you unhappy, it’s probably not your soul mate. You probably haven’t met your match if you’re feeling lonely.
On the flip side, you may feel like you’ve found “the one” even though you haven’t. If this describes you, seeking professional help is a good idea. Sometimes our feelings can cloud our judgment, and this can lead us to choose someone who isn’t right for us.
If you suspect you have made a mistake, don’t hesitate to leave your current relationship. This may be tough, but leaving your partner now could save you years of misery later. Finding the right person is worth almost any pain and heartache you might endure along the way.
