I believe soul mates exist on many different levels in our lifetimes.
The term exists. Soulmates don't.
The "term"? Yes,of course.Do actual soul mates exist? That's another question al together. I think it exists for people who want to believe,and therfore,they make it so. I don't think however,that people should necessarily go looking for it,because they may miss out on a really good opportunity while looking for what they think is the ideal soul mate. Does that make any sense?
