Top 7 Things To Look For In A Soul Mate

"Where is my soul mate?!"

"I've been searching and searching. No luck finding my soul mate."

"I really don't know what I am looking for in a soul mate."

"I need some help in my search for my perfect mate."

How do you know when you've found your soul mate?

Some people will tell you that they "just know", while others can identify several characteristics and reasons why they seem to perfectly mesh with their relationship counterpart.

For those of us who haven't found a soul mate yet, there are things we can be looking for to speed up the process.

There are always going to be things we like and dislike about others, but the true test is deciding whether or not we can lovingly accept the negative attributes.

Sometimes we care about someone very much, but discover that there is some factor that we simply cannot accept for one reason or another.

Here are some factors to think about when looking for a soul mate:

Morals & Beliefs.

Everyone comes with their own set of morals and beliefs. We all know that we should be open, honest, and accepting of others. But oftentimes when our core beliefs differ, it's hard to have a lasting relationship. This is why you'll want to have deep discussions about faith, morals, and beliefs with potential partners. If someone isn't a fit at this deep of a level, you should seriously consider whether the relationship is even worth getting serious about.

What does your partner believe?

 

Communication.

You'll hear over and over that communication is the key. There are different ways of communicating and you need to figure out the best way to communicate with your partner. At the same time you need to know that you can live with this communication method. Some partners are big on talking, while others are more sensitive to nonverbal communication.

How well does your partner communicate?

 

Respect.

Does the potential partner respect you, your body, and your family? You're one of a kind, so you shouldn't give yourself to just anyone. Make sure he or she takes care of you and your family. You're worth it!

Does your partner respect you?

 

Family.

You need to mesh well with their family and vice versa. Discussions about family also include your hopes and dreams when it comes to your own future family. Do you want to get married someday? If so, how many kids would you like to have?

Any family issues?

 

Personality.

Your personality plays a big role in deciding your compatibility with others. However, it's always up for debate whether or not it's best to be with someone with a similar personality or someone with an opposite personality. In this case you'll have to decide your own preference and see how it works out for you.

How compatible is your partner to you?

 

Hobbies & Interests.

It's pretty certain that you won't share every hobby and interest that your partner enjoys. However, it definitely helps the relationship when you have things in common. This will provide you with activities to do with each other in order to deepen your relationship. There will also be plenty of topics for conversation.

What do you both like to do?

 

Conflict.

Even the most perfect couples deal with conflict from time to time. Both you and your partner need to learn the best methods to get through arguments effectively. Try not to lash out in anger, instead strive to understand your partner. Instead of playing the blame game, discuss your problems calmly. If your potential mate attacks you or consistently ignores your feelings, then it's perhaps not a good fit.

Arguments: rational or explosive?

 

Long Term Relationships

When you first meet someone, you may be attracted to his or her looks or personality. As you get to know each other better, you'll be able to see the clues as to whether or not you've found your true soul mate.

Try not to rush things along because anything worth having is worth waiting for! At the same time, you definitely should be having deep conversations about future plans and beliefs at an appropriate time in the relationship. This way if you run into a snag and find out that you can't be together, you won't be as emotionally invested. After all, you don't want to waste as much time in a dead end relationship.

You always have to keep your chin up and have hope. Keep looking with an open heart and mind, because everyone's soul mate is out there somewhere.
