Yes. Its more likely, technically. I mean how many people are close by? Not many, but there are millions of people on the internet.
Not exactly sure how to define soulmate. But I think you can make a special connection with someone regardless of the place.
i believe its possible to have a very real relationship online,with all the drama thats attached to offline relationships.Trouble with soulmates is everyone has their own idea of what that means to them.
If by soulmates you mean only one person you'd work with perfectly in the world? Then no, I don't think they exist at all. But I do think you can find true love online?
