    I Don't Believe Anyone Has A Soulmate

    I'm sure true love exists somewhere in the world, though hardly ever in the happy-clappy, idealised Hollywood sense. I'm sure you can meet somebody, fall in love and go on to live a reasonably content life with them (though I reckon many many people will never even manage this...

    I Don't Believe In Soulmates

    and i don't think there is just one person for every person out there in the world. some people are just not relationship material or choose to never pursue romantic relationships. i am with everyone in this group who feels this way and i don't think people should be knocking...

     Not everyone is meant to be with someone else. ("Meant" ...) Not everyone wants to be with someone else, wants to have a relationship, or even believes in soul mates. So. Yeah..

    On the Contrary

    i think we have many. except i wouldnt call them soul mates [i dont believe we have souls]. but i think many people can be your match. the hard part is picking one and being in a committed relationship. not to mention, you have polygamist and polyamarist who are content and happy...

    Not "a"

    I think we can have more than one. Not necessarily polyamory, but truly deep connections to more than one individual.

    Impossible

    I hear so many people saying everyone should have a "soul mate." This cannot be true. For one thing, there isn't a 1:1 ratio of men to women in the world. Another thing is that my stepdad was a widower. He loved his first wife to death, and he now loves my mom to death...

    Not Me...

    Not at all. I'm not like "everyone else." I never had a real job or a car, I didn't fit-in in college, school, or the outside world, I have no siblings, no place of my own, no real friends who will be there no matter what. And I don't have a soulmate and have never been with...

    It's a Nice Thought

     I think we create the reality we live. It's not like there's a treasure map that's going to lead us to the promised land. It's hard work, compromise, and respect as well as an incredible stroke of luck to be "soul mates".  First of all, it presupposes...

    That Dream Died Long Ago.

    When I was a naive teenager I believed that everyone out there had a perfect match. That everyone out there had a twin soul whom could understand their inner most thoughts, love them unconditionally and be the yin to their yang. Then I experienced more of the world and grew up...

    Mediocrity Principle

    Mediocrity principle is a scientific philosophy that no one place in the universe is more special than another. That is, if every single place in the universe is unique then nothing is unique or special. This same idea can be extended to places on earth and to people. If all...

    It's Rapport And Attraction

    The idea of a soulmate never really resonated with me. People are attracted to people like them, or people that they look up to. It's human nature. Nothing more celestial or magical than that.
