Real Soulmates: What It Is, How It Works, 59 Secrets & Signs to Find Yours

We all want it to be true. But are soulmates real? Or is it simply an idea we got from watching fairy tales? Read on to find out and decide for yourself.

soulmate signs real

Have you been holding out for your soulmate? Many people hear the idea of having a soulmate and fall totally in love with the romance. But hold on, before we get into the argument of if soulmates are real, what exactly is a soulmate? 

Well, the New Oxford American states that a soulmate is “a person ideally suited to another as a close friend or romantic partner.” Sounds pretty simple, however, it really isn’t. It’s a little more complex than that.

Soulmates are not just someone that suits us, soulmates are associated with having a deeper connection to one another, a connection that cannot be replicated. 

It’s that person, the one that clicks. You’ve heard about “the click.” Well, that’s a soulmate. Put simply, they’re The One. [Read: The 20 signs you need to look for in a soulmate connection]

However, there is some argument that soulmates don’t necessarily have to be romantic. You might meet your soulmate in a friend and it never progresses to anything past platonic. 

In that case, when answering the whole “are soulmates real” question, we need to also understand that it’s not always The One romantically. 

What is a soulmate?

Everyone talks about soulmates, but does anyone even know what it means these days? You may be in search of one, but do you know the exact old-school meaning of a soulmate? [Read: What are twin souls? The definitive sign you’ve found this person]

Of course, no one really knows for sure what a soulmate is. But there are some theories on the topic.

People seem to throw around the term “soulmate” quite easily these days. In fact, sometimes they do it so much that the term almost becomes meaningless because it means different things to different people.

Most people probably think the definition of a soulmate is that one person who is your “other half” – the other half of your soul. However, there is some confusion as to whether that is true. [Read: Are they your twin flame or soulmate? 17 signs to tell them apart clearly]

Some people would refer to the “other half of your soul” as a twin soul, not a soulmate. They would argue that a soulmate is more like a “soul friend.” Someone whose soul is very close to yours – just like friends and family are close to you in this life.

To further clarify, a twin soul would be more analogous to a romantic partner or spouse. Whereas a soulmate would be more analogous to close friends and family members.

Regardless, none of us humans really know for sure. But almost all of us hope that soulmates are real and that we will find ours. [Read: What are twin souls? 16 signs to know if you found your twin soul]

Are soulmates real?

So now that you know what a soulmate is, do they actually exist?

The question of whether soulmates are real or not is a pretty big debate. With the help of mathematical equations, some scientists say that it’s impossible to have a soulmate. 

In addition, others argue that you shouldn’t even think about soulmates since you then eliminate other eligible partners because you’re looking for The One. [Read: 20 very real soulmate signs you’ve met the one destined for you]

It may or may not be true, but regardless, they have a valid point.

For instance, if you don’t feel that click immediately, you might push that person aside and continue looking.

Perhaps soulmate connections don’t happen immediately and maybe we need to grow into it. [Read: Infatuation vs. love – how it feels and 28 differences and ways to turn it into love]

To add further weight to that idea, scientists believe soulmates are probable, but not in the way we think of them. 

You don’t need an immediate click with someone, rather, soulmates result from a deep love that develops over time. Yet, you might need to work on your connection and then suddenly, click! 

Who’s right? No one really knows. However, if you’re wondering whether your partner is your “soulmate,” there are some good signs which show that you and your partner are a perfect match. [Read: Karmic connection – how to recognize a soul agreement in your life]

Does everyone have a soulmate? 

If you define a soulmate as a “soul friend,” then yes, everyone will probably have more than one soulmate. For example, you have more than one close friend and family member. The same is true for soulmates.

Even if you define a soulmate as some would define a twin flame – the other half of your soul – then everyone would still have a soulmate. If a soul is split in two, then there is another half of you out there somewhere.

Either way, regardless of how you define a soulmate, you will have either one or many. And everyone will have one. Great news, huh? [Read: Karmic relationship – what it is, 27 signs, and how to heal from a karmic cycle]

Is there such a thing called destiny when it comes to soulmates?

Call it what you want, coincidences or destiny, but you can’t help but wonder if there’s a reason why your partner and you were drawn toward each other. And sometimes, in the most unlikely of circumstances. 

You go out to meet someone else and you accidentally meet the one you spend the rest of your life with. You bump into someone on a street, and then you see them again, and again.

These coincidences don’t have to be the soulmate signs you’re looking for. Nor does it mean that the person you’re dating isn’t your soulmate because you met in the most likely of circumstances. [Read: How to create a perfectly romantic meet cute in your life]

Life is full of coincidences and energies, and whether you choose to believe them or not, that’s up to you. But sometimes, you can’t help but wonder if there was a bigger power at play to bring you two together.

Regardless of how you met, there are other ways and signs to know if you’ve met your soulmate and the love of your life.

Is it possible to know your soulmate before meeting them? 

If soulmates are real, then you probably have a very deep connection with them that transcends the human experience. In other words, you could be psychically connected to them. [Read: What falling in love feels like – 20 true love feelings you would experience]

Maybe you talk to each other in your dreams or in meditation. So, while you have never met them in person, it is possible to have a sense of their impending presence in your life. 

Whether you know your soulmate or not before meeting them would depend on how in tune you are with your spiritual and psychic side. Not everyone is in touch with their sixth sense, so they might not be as aware as someone who is.

Is a soulmate the same as your partner?

Your partner certainly could be your soulmate. However, this is not necessarily the case. Again, it all depends on how you define the term soulmate and if it’s different from a twin flame. [Read: Law of attraction – 37 secrets to manifest love and bring your dream to life]

A soulmate could be your partner, your parents, family members, or close friends. Some people even theorize that your soulmate might not even be incarnated in a human body, but rather still in the spiritual world. 

So, while your soulmate could be your partner, this is not always the case. It depends on the people and the soul agreements they made together before they were born.

Do soulmates end up together? 

Many people who believe in soulmates also believe in reincarnation. They think that souls keep incarnating onto the physical earth plane in order to grow, evolve, and learn to express unconditional love. [Read: Why does love hurt when it goes bad? The truth to know]

If this is true, then souls also create karma – both good and bad. Karma is cause and effect. In other words, if you do something bad to someone else, then you will get something bad in return. But the same is true if you do something good too. 

So, if soulmates have spent a lot of lifetimes together creating karma, they will naturally come back together to try to work that out and learn to create good karma together, not bad.

With that said, that doesn’t mean that a person will spend a lifetime with their soulmate. Perhaps they come together for only a period of time and then they part ways for a variety of reasons. [Read: Twin flame – what it is, 41 signs, and ways to recognize your twin soul]

Long story short, soulmates won’t necessarily end up together, although they certainly can.

Finding your soulmate

If you are determined to find your soulmate, then you can do it. However, you will want to make sure that you are in the right place. To better attract your soulmate, follow these tips.

4. Be financially stable

While they say money isn’t everything and it can’t buy you happiness, it certainly helps. And even more important than how much money you have, you have to be able to manage it well. You don’t want to be living in debt.

5. Be emotionally stable 

Part of self-improvement includes being emotionally stable. That means that you are generally happy, in control of your anger, and know how to express your feelings in a constructive manner. [Read: Emotionally stable – how to find your zone of perfect calmness]

If you feel like you have become the best version of yourself, then you are probably ready to meet your soulmate. But how do you know it will happen? Well, here are some signs that it will.

1. You suddenly start thinking about relationships more than usual

Soulmates are very familiar with one another. So, regardless of whether you have met them in human form or not, you will feel very connected to them when you do meet them.

This feeling is a big indication that the person is your soulmate because most people don’t feel connected to strangers for no reason at all. [Read: Emotional connection – 38 signs, secrets and ways to build a real bond]

3. You have been getting more “coincidences” lately

Maybe you see a story on social media about soulmates and then your best friend starts a conversation about them too. And then later, one of your colleagues recommends a book about soulmates out of the blue.

These are coincidences that might indicate that your soulmate might be coming into your life soon.

4. You have been dreaming about your soulmate

Recurring dreams usually mean something. So, if you’re having dreams about meeting your soulmate, then that could very well mean that you will. [Read: Dreams about cheating – what they mean and why you don’t have to panic]

Dreams come from either your subconscious mind or your soul. Either way, they’re trying to communicate something to you.

5. You suddenly feel more attractive than usual

Sure, we all feel a little insecure about our attractiveness sometimes. But if you are feeling particularly good about how you look lately, that could be because your soul is putting out that positive energy in order to attract your soulmate.

Again, your subconscious mind and soul know things that your conscious mind doesn’t. [Read: Relationship timeline – 16 most common dating phases in a relationship]

So, if you are feeling very excited and like something really good is about to happen to you, it could be because, on some level, you know that your soulmate is coming into your life soon.

7. You are drawn to certain places more than usual

We all have a sixth sense whether we know it or not. It tries to nudge us in one way or another, even if we’re not consciously aware of it.

So, if you feel like you should be going to a certain restaurant, bar, or any other place more than usual, there could be a very good reason for that. [Read: 64 best places to meet men and ways to find your perfect attractive, eligible guy]

8. You have been receiving signs from the universe

Similar to having “coincidences” happen, the universe might be sending you other signs too.

Maybe after dreaming about meeting a stranger, you see someone on TV that looks just like that person. The universe is always sending us signs about our lives and what’s going to happen. So, just pay attention.

9. You feel a sense of knowing about someone you just met

Usually, when we meet strangers, we don’t feel much toward them. We exchange pleasantries and get to know each other. [Read: Love at first sight – the dreamy signs that reveal it’s very real]

But if you have a feeling that you know a lot about a person before they even tell you, that could be because you have just met your soulmate.

10. You find yourself attracted to someone you wouldn’t normally be attracted to

Many people think that soulmates are two people who are romantically and sexually attracted to each other.

While this can be true, you might not exactly be sexually attracted to your soulmate when you meet them.

But you don’t care. Because even though they might not be “your type,” you are still drawn to them. [Read: Sexual chemistry – what it is, how it feels, 52 signs and ways to increase it]

13. You feel a strong connection to nature

Because souls are part of the nature of the universe, you could also feel more of a connection to nature here on earth.

You might want to go hiking, sit by the ocean, or just lay in the grass in a park. Regardless, you feel much more connected to nature in general. [Read: Foolproof tips for dating a nature lover]

14. You feel like you are in the “right place at the right time”

Synchronicity is a beautiful thing. That’s when all things just flow together and fall into place in an effortless way.

So, if you are feeling lately that you happen to be in the right place at the right time more than usual, then it’s probably for a reason. The universe is guiding you to meet your soulmate.

15. You feel a sense of peace and contentment

Soulmates are near and dear to our hearts and souls. They bring peace and contentment into our lives. [Read: Finding peace – how to calm your mind and make peace a state of mind]

For some reason, you seem more committed to making positive changes in your life. You want to get healthier and get a better job.

Yes, you’re flawed, they’re flawed and you both know it. This isn’t about finding someone who’s in a perfect package, smiling all the time, and doing everything exactly right. That’s not what a soulmate is, that’s a doll.

You both see each other’s flaws but accept them and embrace them in the relationship. A soulmate is about having the perfect relationship, it’s about going through the ups and downs together. [Read: 16 secrets to a perfectly happy relationship]

7. You feel calm when you’re with them

10. Remember, your soulmate may not be a romantic connection

You may have found your soulmate, however, there isn’t any sexual chemistry between you. [Read: What are pheromones? The scent of sex and the part they play in attraction]

12. You feel very empathetic toward them

Empathy is the ability to put yourself in someone else’s shoes and appreciate how they’re feeling and what they’re going through. When you meet someone who could be a soulmate, you find it easy to feel empathy toward them. 

When they’re feeling down, you can almost connect and understand what they’re feeling on a deeper level. This helps you to support them through whatever they’re going through. [Read: Reasons why empathy is important in a relationship]

13. There is a firm respect that works both ways

You haven’t met your soulmate if you’re constantly giving, giving, giving and all they do is take. There’s no respect in that type of relationship if you can even call it a relationship. 

When you meet a soulmate, you respect one another and act in a way that backs that up. 

Of course, that doesn’t mean that one of you won’t mess up occasionally, but you’ll put it right because you have that empathy and respect for one another. [Read: Are you a giver who’s feeling unappreciated in a relationship?]

14. You might come from different backgrounds, but you create a balance

None of that matters because you balance one another out and create almost a yin and yang effect. [Read: How to have a good relationship that gets better with each day]

15. You both work hard to overcome difficulties

A soulmate relationship doesn’t mean that you’ll never fight, argue, or disagree. It’s a normal relationship at the end of the day! 

However, when you’re with your soulmate, you both work hard to overcome those challenges and communicate effectively to work through them. You both fight for one another and not always against one another. 

16. You never feel like you have to fake anything

A soulmate connection means that you’re there for one another when it’s good and bad. You have your very own cheerleader right beside you! [Read: 17 signs of a supportive partner who encourages you and your goals]

18. They just “get you” and you don’t have to explain your needs

Your soulmate isn’t psychic, but they know you so well that sometimes you don’t really need to tell them what you need. They just know. 

They “get you” completely and you feel the same way about them. That’s mostly why you feel completely able to be yourself, and as a result, you work through hard times together. 

19. There’s a sense of security you’ve never had before

In other relationships, you might have felt jealous or not sure of where you stood. In a soulmate relationship, that uncertainty doesn’t exist. [Read: Ways to feel more secure in your relationship]

But at some deep down subconscious level, you feel like you’ve known them all your life and beyond. A surefire sign that you’ve finally found the person that you’re meant to be with.

22. You’re always talking about them

Now there are two aspects to this. At the beginning of the relationship, you can’t stop talking about them to anyone and everyone. [Read: Emotionally invested – 18 things you MUST know before going all-in on love]

A sign that they’ve entered your mind and heart so pervasively that you struggle to find any other comparison quite so pleasingly perfect. You just can’t stop thinking of them.

And then, a few months into the relationship, you see a sudden shift. You think about them all the time, they’re constantly in your thoughts.

But it’s not obsessive, and you don’t see the need to talk about them with others. [Read: Are you in love? 21 signs to decode that feeling of falling in love]

You feel a calm sense of euphoria about being in a relationship with them. And you see no need or reason to talk about your relationship with others. 

You’re blissfully happy, and someone else’s opinions or feedback makes no difference to you.

You have no second thoughts, no need for validation, or proof of their love for you.

23. Earlier partners fade away

It’s funny how we can go through life entirely satisfied with our partners, or at least mostly satisfied, but things never quite seem to work out. [Read: Signs your past relationship is holding you back from a much better future]

Then we meet this amazing person, and all those relationships we had before, that seemed great at the time, are revealed by comparison for how entirely uninspiring and pedestrian they actually were.

24. You trust each other

Trust is the cornerstone of all true relationships and having that in a relationship from day one, without having to be worked at in any way, is another soulmate sign.

25. You’re great friends

Your lives fit together so effortlessly and in such a complementary fashion and as much as the sparks fly, and your hearts lift every time you see each other, you are also each other’s best friend. [Read: Signs you’re in love with your best friend and don’t realize it]

26. Shared principles

You can work at compromising on your principles, but having vastly different approaches to how you both choose to live can be really quite destructive, unlike soulmates whose ethics and morals always seem to align so closely.

27. A shared vision

Likewise, if you both have dynamically opposed perceptions of where you both want to be in ten years’ time – perceptions that are unlikely to compromise without at least a small element of resentment. 

Soulmates tend to have their eyes set on the same point on the horizon. [Read: Very strong signs your relationship is built to last]

28. Their company fulfills you

You really feel nurtured and fulfilled simply by being with your partner, your battery charged and your soul replenished. Being separated for long periods has an opposite, highly draining, effect where you feel tired and lost without them.

29. You enjoy their flaws

What others might consider their flaws, or what you might consider flaws in others, is to you a charming part of who they are and, therefore, something you would never change. A soulmate for sure.

30. Talk is terrific

The conversation you have with a soulmate is always meaningful, fun, or insightful. Words are never empty, even when indulging in small talk, and you never tire of anything the other has to say. [Read: 15 subtle rules to be a really good partner in the relationship]

31. No awkward silences

Perhaps an even more meaningful sign that you’ve met your soulmate is that you never actually have to say anything. 

Just being in each other’s presence is enough and silences are a comfortable reminder of just how much you understand and mean to each other.

32. Instinct

There’s no real explaining this one, but at some deep level, you just know that the person you’re with now is the person you’re meant to spend the rest of your life with. [Read: How to ensure you have a long-term relationship that lasts]

33. You push each other

Seeing the potential in each other, you are never satisfied to let the other settle for anything less than the amazing future that they deserve. With gentle encouragement and the odd necessary shove, soulmates will always support their partner’s direction.

34. You can laugh together

Humor is a hugely underrated part of any relationship, and soulmates will always be able to laugh with and at each other with impunity – and never with any hint of offense being taken or given. [Read: 25 must-follow relationship rules that’ll guarantee a happy romance]

35. You involve each other in your decisions

If you have decisions to make, no matter how big or small, and you couldn’t imagine doing so without first sharing them with your significant other, then that show of confidence, trust, and love could be a sign of soulmate matching success.

36. Synchronicity

This sign is hard to explain, but among soulmates, there are often little signs, little coincidences that constantly seem to arise. 

You both lived at the same door number when you were kids, you both have pets with the same name, and you both passed your driving test at the same time of the same year. [Read: 28 committed relationship rules and signs to make love last forever]

All things that on their own mean little, but as they start to rack up seem increasingly synchronistic. Some even believe that these recurring consequences are signs from the angels.

37. The earth moves

Good sex is by no means a sign that you are soulmates, but if you experience something that goes just a little bit deeper than any sex you’ve ever had before, that stimulates your heart and mind as much as it does your body, then that certainly may be a sign.

Soulmate or not, they’re special to you

So, what do you think? Are soulmates real?

Whether you want to call them your soulmate or you simply feel that they’re the only person you want to be with, this is a special relationship that is likely to open you up to new experiences and feelings. [Read: Things about love you’ll only learn from experience]

It’s not at all, it’s simply that for the first time ever, you’re being treated correctly by someone who gets you on a deeper level. So, whether you believe that soulmates exist or they’re as rare as unicorns, know that this person is special and worth hanging on to.
