You’ve probably heard the term “soul mate” used in different contexts, but you might not know what it means or why anyone would say it.
In this article, we’ll take a look at how to spot your soulmate based on the traits of your partner, including physical traits, personality type, and shared interests.
They have an ideal body
Your soulmate will have an ideal body shape and size. If you’re into models, chances are you’re attracted to someone with a similar body type to those you see on magazine covers. The same goes for celebrities – they don’t just get away with being thin because they’re famous. This isn’t to say that your partner needs to be perfectly toned, but there’s a certain level of fitness that you should expect from them.
It doesn’t matter if they’re naturally slender or very muscular, as long as they’re fit enough to do the things they want to do with you. If you like your partner’s body type, then they must like yours too.
Their appearance changes throughout life
Your partner may seem quite different when you first met them, but they start to reveal their true selves once you know them well. For example, a guy you met at a party could be a big-shot businessman, while when you hang out with him at home, he may be much quieter and shy. In both scenarios, you won’t notice noticeable differences between the two appearances until you spend enough time with them.
The same goes for women – although they won’t change their whole personalities overnight, they may gradually become more outgoing, confident, or even mysterious.
They’ve changed their looks in different ways (e.g., hairstyle)
This is one of the most popular signs of your soulmate. If you think back to the first person you ever fell head-over-heels for, then you’ll probably remember that they had a different haircut or style than everyone else you knew. And while you may think, “I don’t like his hair,” you’ll still end up falling for him anyway.
Similarly, if there was one thing that made your ex-partner stand out from all the rest, you’ll recognize that trait in your new love interest, even though you didn’t initially notice it. That’s why it’s so important to keep an open mind when you date someone new – there may be something that makes them unique, whether it’s a quirky fashion choice, a particular kind of music, or a specific hobby.
You can tell them apart from other people
One of the best signs of your soulmate is that you can easily tell them apart from others. Even if you’ve known them for years, you’ll always be able to pick them out of a crowd, no matter how many people they meet up with.
You might think this is obvious, but it’s surprising how many relationships break down because one person can’t distinguish themselves from another. One man I dated in my early twenties couldn’t tell me apart from his sister, even after we were married! He eventually figured out who I was, but it took time.
There may be more than one person who is right for you.
There’s nothing wrong with having multiple partners, but if you find that you’re becoming bored with your current relationship, or if you’re finding yourself spending more time with your friends rather than your partner, then it’s a sign that you need to reevaluate your priorities.
It may mean that the relationship isn’t working for you anymore, and you need to move on. Or, perhaps you realize that you need to focus on yourself before you can truly devote yourself to a healthy relationship. Whatever it is, make sure you can identify these situations clearly, so you can avoid making the same mistake twice.
You’ll likely find out about each others’ past lives together
When you fall in love, you tend to forget everything that happened up to that point. You may even be completely oblivious to the fact that you already knew each other before, which is why paying attention to any signs that your partner has been around you before is important.
For example, you may have a strong feeling that your partner has met your parents before – or perhaps you’ve met your grandparents or great-grandparents, or maybe you’ve encountered your partner’s siblings.
These signs mean you should take a step back from the relationship and reassess your actions. Are you ready to commit? Do you want to go through with the wedding ceremony? Is there a chance that you want more children from this union? You must ask yourself these questions before moving forward with a serious commitment.
The way they speak or act has changed since meeting them
If you’ve got a bad habit that you’ve picked up from family members you grew up with or developed new confidence since starting college, then you’re probably aware of it.
But sometimes, our new habits or attitudes don’t necessarily come from ourselves. Sometimes, we learn these things from our partners, or maybe from our parents, teachers, or mentors. However, you learned them; if they affect your speech patterns or mannerisms, you should try to put them aside.
You feel comfortable with them as soon as you meet them
It’s easy to get swept off your feet by someone you’ve just met. But, at some point, you’ll need to stop and think about whether you’re truly compatible with the person you’re seeing. If you’re in doubt, then you should seriously consider backing out of the relationship.
However, if you feel comfortable with them almost immediately, and you feel that you could see yourself happily staying with them forever. There’s every reason to believe that you’ve found the perfect match.
A sense of humor seems important when dating someone
Even if your partner is physically attractive, it won’t matter if they aren’t funny. And if they’re not funny, then they’re unlikely to keep you interested for longer than a few weeks, let alone a lifetime.
That’s why checking out a potential partner’s sense of humor is important. Does he crack jokes? Can she laugh at herself? If you can see the person cracking jokes, you’re definitely on to a winner.
