I think there is more than just "one special person" out there than can make a person happy. Soul Mate seems to be defined as just one. I think there are many who can come to be seen as a "soul mate". However it is never all bliss, it is work and compromise and takes a great deal of willingness to share and be honest.

Since there is no such thing a a soul how can one have a mate? People need to work at a relationship and often the most rewarding ones come from someone else who has differences than you. This way one gets a wider view of the world and evolves. The normal definition of "soul mate" seems contrary to that fact.

If by "soul" you mean 'mind', then I would understand "Soul Mate" to be two like-minded people sharing their lives. If that's what you're asking, then yes, I think there is such a thing as a soul mate.

There are definitely people that are more compatible with each other or that have a ton of chemistry. Speaking in the sense that people are “meant to be” I don’t think so. There are roughly 7.5B people in the world and the averse person gets to see only a very small percentage of them. To find the right person near you isn’t coincidence. It has to do with proximity, fear of being alone and chemistry. So we tell ourselves that we found the “one” when we haven’t even met the rest. We developed our “soulmates” out of respect and mutual interests. Sounds cynical I know but then again it’s not...it’s just logical and reasonable.

If you look at a soulmate as somebody who you have awesome chemistry with, then yes, soulmates exist. Not in a spiritual sense.

First, one would have to answer if souls even exist.

People typically think of a soul mate as someone who is also a sexual partner. That's not always true. I consider my youngest daughter my soul mate. We have a connection that's beyond all others. To speak in the vernacular, "we vibe."

I think I can agree, there could be many people just tuning in with your energy on a particular subject...you cannot expect a soul mate to fit in every part of your life...

Several. Choose wisely.

Like minded (Brain chemistry) people are more interesting to each other because they are able to think in a similar way ( abstract vs concrete for example)

There are many great loves that people have throughout their lives, each propelling a person to the next stage of growth. Occasionally people are lucky enough to meet someone they are compatible with to spend their entire lives, but that does not invalidate the shorter loves that other people experience. That one love is more true than another diminishes the reality of how beautiful each love is and how grateful we should be for each experience.

well, I don't think that there is literally suck thing as a " soul mate " for the simple reason that there is no " soul ", at least as described in different religions to be what's going on our minds.. on the other hand, some people might think that a " soul mate " is a person whom has the same personal characteristics as theirs, went through the same experiences, or lived under some similar conditions, which might lead them to think that if a person has had the same journey of life as mine then he/she must be my " soul mate "... although, there are others whom might think that what defines a " soul mate " is how much the other person completes me, means that person is required to have different experiences, different beliefs, submitted to different conditions on the course of his life.. from all of this, a constant definition of a " soul mate " doesn't exist, also for other reasons, e.g. there is no other person who has the same characteristics as ours, for each of us has lived his life totally different from everybody else that it is impossible to find 2 persons think the same way.

I cannot deny the way that music, soul music or otherwise, makes me feel. In a related way there is such a thing as a soulmate. I think most people use "soul" to describe the entire experience of a person regardless of what you think happens after you die.

Soulmates can be described as a relationship where the parties are mutually beneficial to each other's "soul" with minimum or no effort at all, esp. after years of attempting to find such a person.

Since I do not believe we have "souls", my logic concludes there can be no "soul mates". What we have is compatibility. The more two people have in common, the more they have to share with each other as mates. Religion of course .. being a doozy! Perhaps this site will be helpful finding that compatibility?
Curious why my photo did not upload though. Does it need approval or is it operator error?

I've seen no evidence of a soul and believe that people can feel a sense of deep kindredness with any one of a number of people.

While I think you can meet someone and feel it so deeply, I don't believe there is just one 'soul' mate.

I'm Objective about us having or being a Soul. How things work in life confuse the heck out of me. I just can not find cooperation with it in my Life. So? Maybe? It does need some better understanding about such things.

The term is problematic, for sure, for those of us who don't believe there's a soul.

One would need to demonstrate the existence of a 'soul' first.

I believe that a ‘Soulmate’ is a person in which you share similar energies.
Soulmates are true friends that laugh a lot and talk for hours, and it’s always effortless and energizing.
Soulmates match and complement your own peace beautifully. They love each other are always connected. They can be family members, lovers, friends or siblings that provide you with company and mutual support.
We may have many soulmates to appear in the right periods during our lives so that we never feel lonely.
When soulmates marry one another they can have happy reciprocal relations with minimal arguments and no ego issues where both feel seen and heard.
