Current Usage of Soulmate

In current usage, "soulmate" usually refers to a romantic partner, with the implication of an exclusive lifelong bond. This is to say, the word is used with more rarity than the terms also associated with 'romantic partner'. The term is a very versatile term, being defined differently by different individuals, as it is related to the concept of love. It commonly holds the connotation of being the strongest bond with another person,romantically, that one can achieve. The term is not used as often as other terms representing the same idea, and this is likely to lead to its perceived rarity in meaning. The definition of it ranges widely, and cannot be pinpointed. It is commonly accepted that one will feel 'complete' once they have found their soul mate, as it is partially in the perceived definition that two souls are meant to unite.

Greek Mythology: Soulmates

Greek Mythology Soul Mate: -In Greek mythology, according to Plato's Symposium, human beings originally consisted of three genders-male, female, and the combination of the two. However, Zeus feared the power of the combined human form, and so cut humans into separate males and females, resulting in a perpetual ache of separation and a longing to regain the completeness by finding one's soul mate. 

According to Aristophanes (a character based on a real contemporary of Plato) "love" is the term describing the yearning and pursuit of each half to re-create the whole, a concept resulting from the split of the original body which featured four legs, four arms, and a head with two faces. Greek mythology shares the soul-mate idea with many other cultures throughout history that have stories to explain the strong energetic connection between two people who often feel more complete with each other, where regular concepts like "friend" or "mate" are not adequate. Terms like "my better half" and "counterpart" indicate similar sentiments. 

Signs of meeting a soulmate

  1. Feeling a sense of déjà vu - we've done this before, we've been here before. Familiarity with surroundings and people associated with the soulmate candidate. 
  2. A synchronicity of events or outside forces that bring you together. It's as though the universe takes over to control your destiny. You may be reading the same book and know the same people. Things are just a little too coincidental. 
  3. Immediate attraction and chemistry. Love at first sight. Physically comfortable togetherness. 
  4. Although you've just met, you deeply understand one another. There is an immediate kinship. You just click. 
  5. This person has surfaced in your dreams. You recognize the face and mannerisms.
