Love Series #1 – What is a Soulmate?

Good day, guys and gals. My name is Clark, and I’m starting a series of articles sharing my take on love, soulmates, and relationships in general. Up until now I’ve mainly written on other topics like meditation, wealth and happiness, so I think it might be a good idea for us to have discussions on the topic of love. First I will share what I know with you below, and then you may leave any questions or comments that you have at the bottom of this page.

Now, let me start my “Love Series” with today’s subject: what is a soulmate?

What is a Soulmate?

Different people have different definitions when it comes to defining soulmate. This is quite common with abstract ideas like soulmate instead of questions that have factual answers like “what type of car is that?” or “how do you build a brickhouse?”

Below are some opinions as to what a soulmate is:

Thomas Moore defines a soulmate as “someone to whom we feel profoundly connected, as though the communication and communing that take place between us were not the product of intentional efforts, but rather a divine grace.”

Arielle Ford, who is the author of The Soulmate Secret, and co-conducts the free Attract Your Soulmate webinar together with Claire Zammit defines soulmates as:

“A soulmate is someone with whom you share a deep and profound connection and feel that you can be completely yourself. It’s someone whom you love unconditionally and who loves you unconditionally. Without trying to sound too sentimental, a soulmate is someone who ‘completes’ you.”

Refinery29 said,“A soulmate is someone that just gets you. It’s a connection of minds, a mutual respect, an unconditional love and a total understanding.” 

Despite all the different definitions, we can all agree that a soulmate is someone who you
want to be with. Somebody whom you anticipate seeing, someone who makes you feel good when you have a thought of him/her. Someone whom you can’t get enough of, someone whom you feel deep in your heart you should be with. That is the way I see it.

Different Types of Soulmates

The definitions above are, on first glance, speaking of romantic soulmates. But you could easily extend them to include family, close friends, and even acquaintances. For example, at work you might find someone whose opinions about your occupation and industry are so compatible with yours, and both of you work very well together. So you may think of him or her as your office soulmate! Or you might find that you are able to share and do everything with your sister. Thus, she could be your soulmate as well.

Our focus will be on romantic soulmates in this series, but don’t count out me writing a piece on the other kinds of soulmates as well.

On to the Next Part!

And that’s it for the first part of my “Love Series”! I hope you have enjoyed it, and if you think it is good, please share it with your friends and loved ones. If you have any questions or comments at all, just leave them below and I’ll get back to you ASAP.

  1. This was quite the read for me to enjoy and now seeing that you can tell us about what a soulmate is is very nice. In my own words, I think that a soulmate is a person whose attitude might not match ours but is a complete complement of ours. They are that one person whom our soul merges with.

    • As long as a definition of soulmate resonates with your being, it is the right definition.

      You have a beautiful way of looking at soulmates, and if I have one advice it is to never stop believing that there is such a person for you. Please feel free to read the rest of this series and comment on them, and I wish you all the luck in the world finding that person you just described (that is, if you haven’t found that person yet)!

  2. I have heard so much about soulmates and this article does help me understand better. However, I always had this question on what is the difference between a soulmate and a twin flame?

    So many people talk about it but how can one tell the difference between the two?

    I thought my last partner was a twin flame but now I’m confused!

    • Hi Shrey, 

      As you can see in the article, the next part of this series is about twin flames. So my response would be this: Just read the next chapter!! 🙂

      Basically, twin flames are just MUCH more intense compared to soulmates. But don’t forget that these terms were coined by human beings, so they’re just words if I’m being totally honest. As long as being with your partner feels blissful, it doesn’t matter what you call him/her.

  3. I have to say that I have never heard of such a thing as types of soulmates. It is so broad that it includes everybody and makes the word soulmate a simple and common word.

    I understand that it can be used this way too but I still wanna keep it as designating someone special with whom you share love and a deep connection.

    Thanks for sharing!

    • I love that you are such a romantic! You have got to read the next part of this series which is in regards to twin flames! Of course, you do realize that you can also share love and a deep connection with family members and friends, right? 

      Obviously, the word soulmate is sacred and I would never dream of making it mean something common.
