    But I Think I Found Another One Of Mine Recently ;)

    Ok, I've got to write this down because change is brewing around here. I met this guy a month ago. And he is yummy. Yum. With a capital Y. Everyday my crush on him is growing. If this is the peak of the mountain, I want a moment to savor the delicious lust, infatuation, you know...

    You Have A Soul Mate? Maybe Soul Mates.

    I... don't believe in soul mates... Oh no this is not the usual scenario where I condemn ever loving because one guy broke my heart and left me devastated and hopeless. Because let's face it, I'm just 16 going on 17, I know nothing about love. But why do I not believe at the...

    It Is a Bad Philosophy

    This idea of a soulmate holds people back from working at a marriage and creating your soulmate.  I am happily married but I think I could have married a host of different women and been just as happy.  Just be a good person, marry a good person, love that person and...

    It's Always Different

    I'm more along the train of thought that believes a soulmate is not found, but rather it is the results of two "mated" souls that have bonded over a lifetime. Also, if for whatever reason the two souls separate, neither is the same and will need a different soul, one that is not...

    Do I Have One?

    The whole soulmates thing is probably just a myth for most people. Although I'm sure a few people out there are lucky enough to find their matches. Do I believe that a woman is out there with identical opinions, beliefs, and interests to me? Absolutely not. I am truly an anomaly...

    The existence of soulmates,

    is a debatable topic. Many would say that their soulmate exists. Some who have been rejected countless times, don't believe in it. I guess there is no truth after all. Truth is based on what we wish to believe in, therefore, if everyone believes in different things, there is no...

    If you really think about it,

    the idea of soulmates is rather insulting, as well as destructive. Sure people talk about it as if it's some grand romantic concept, but seriously think about it and what it suggests: It suggests that we are incomplete people and we will not be complete until we find that ONE...

    So... I might have found my mate.

    But when you find your mate you are suppose to want them, you're suppose to claim them, never let them go... well. I don't know what I want. 1/2 of me wants him forever and always, the other 1/2 keeps telling me I don't want him, the commitment, the stress, the pressure or the...

    I've never believed in the idea

    that there is a "soulmate" out there for everyone, and I never will. People often speculate that the reason I think this way is because, I've never found anyone. And to some degree they're right. When your 24, and your love life is basically non existent, it becomes harder to...
