I Dream of You Every Night

For as long as I can remember I've dreamed of finding my one, my other half, my split apart. I have never stopped believing that my soulmate is out there.

ClassicalGreek mythology – Originally humans were combined of 4 arms, 4 legs, and a single head made of 2 faces, but Zeus feared their power and split them all in half, condemning them to spending their lives searching for the other half to complete them. This theory was presented as a half-serious story by Aristophanes in Plato's Symposium, after all the participants at the Symposium ("drinking party") were charged to philosophize on the topic of love.

Spiritual and religious – concepts of reincarnation and karma. Soulmates have spent many previous lifetimes together.

Companion soulmate – People with whom one has made a connection

Soul Lovers – Joseph & Ariadne.

Twin Soulmates – Very close friends with whom one has strong bonds.

Twin flame soulmate – A popular romantic belief that there is only one true soulmate.

Scientific soulmate – (If) a relationship can be quantified, and scored according to an internal happiness scale. A scientific soulmate is the person with whom you are the absolute happiest. You would therefore be less happy with any other person in existence.

Balance Partners and Messengers – The people you meet along the way who help you create balance in your life. 

Divine Complement – A new colloquialism for a 'match made in heaven', a twin soul, who holds inborn potentials that match and complement one's own and who is linked eternally through a signature in the heart at the dimension of the spirit.

I have been lucky enough in this lifetime to have found two soulmates. The first one, well she chose another to love,  but I know in my heart of hearts even to this day, we are soulmates. She knows me better then anyone has ever known me. And I could hear her voice and know the face she was making on the other end of the phone. We are spiritual and karmic soulmates.  I take solace in that i know that there is an alternate world where she and i and our son are living happily in the city, and the only thing we fight about it how many books i get to read to our son at night.
My second soulmate is not a romantic soulmate, yet everyday it's proven to me that she is my companion soulmate, and my scientific soulmate. My life is better because of her. I am happier when I am spending time with her.

I count myself lucky, I really do. Not everyone can say they have found a soulmate much less two. Yet still I am unsatisfied. I want my split apart. I want that "match made in heaven". I want to be in love. I want it to be my soulmate. I want that person that looks at me and sees me. The real me. The me that uses sarcasm as a defense. The me that can be witty without being mean. I want the soulmate that will hold my hand in a scary movie and let me hold her while she cries during the sappy ones. I want to let my walls down and let her in. I want to make a face and have her know what it means without asking.  I want someone to have a family with, to raise the future of this place with.

Am I asking for too much? Am I being to selfish?

I believe i have found my soul mate the scarry part is he is much younger. But we have so much in common and i love to share and spend time with him. <br />

Only time will tell where the frienship will go but i see so much of me in him. Perhaps if nothing else i can make his journey a bit less rocky and complicated than mine has been.

I love your screen name! Best yet i have read backwards and forward...... I am never ever going to be good enough to see such but I love it all.the same.
