Soulmates – we’ve heard the term used a lot, but what does it really mean? Is it predetermined or is it something that has to be developed over time? Although it may seem impossible to determine if someone is your soulmate from the very beginning, there are some signs that will act as a guide. To help you on the search for your soulmate, here’s a list of ten signs that will help you know if you’ve found the one.

Sign #1: You Feel An Instant Connection

When we meet someone for the first time, we don’t usually feel an instant connection to them. However, when we meet our soulmate, we feel a connection that is so strong and so deep, it’s almost as if they’ve known us forever. This feeling of connection is one of the most important signs that there is something special between you and the other person. It’s a feeling that a relationship can be formed and that the two of you can build something truly special.

Sign #2: You Genuinely Care For Them

Everyone has relationships in their life that don’t last very long. We might have a good time together and even enjoy each other’s company but eventually, the connection fades away. However, this doesn’t happen when you meet your soulmate. When you find the one, you feel an immediate and genuine care for their well-being. You want to see them happy and successful, even if it’s not with you.

Sign #3: You Have Open Conversations

When you meet your soulmate, communication is one of the things that come naturally. You feel comfortable discussing anything and everything with them, be it emotions and feelings, your worries, or even uncomfortable topics. With your soulmate, dialogue and conversations are almost effortless and never boring.

Sign #4: You Feel At Ease

When you meet someone for the first time, it’s normal to feel a bit anxious. But with your soulmate, that anxiety is quickly replaced with a sense of peace. When you’re together, you feel relaxed and at ease and you don’t have to act differently or pretend to be someone that you’re not.

Sign #5: You Know You Can Trust Them

Trust is essential in any relationship and it’s even more important when you’ve found your soulmate. With them, trust comes naturally and you know that whatever you tell them, they won’t pass it on to anyone else. This is especially important during difficult moments, as you know that you can always rely on your partner for support.

Sign #6: You Respect Each Other

Respect is an important element in any relationship and it’s especially important with soulmates. When you’ve found the one, disagreements and arguments will be common, but the respect between the two of you will remain the same. You will express your opinion and stand up for yourself, but there will never be a lack of respect between the two of you.

Sign #7: You Laugh Together

When it comes to finding your soulmate, laughter is an integral part of the process. Laughter makes it easy to bond with someone and it allows you to open up to them as well. You can laugh at yourself, each other’s jokes, or simply laugh at life, but when you’re with your soulmate you’ll undoubtedly find yourself laughing often.

Sign #8: You Support Each Other

Finding your soulmate means having someone who is there for you and supports you no matter what. Even if the two of you disagree on something, you will still be able to work together to likely solve that issue and can still remain a strong support system for each other.

Sign #9: You Feel Comfortable Being Yourself

We all have different aspects of ourselves not everyone is aware of. Whether they are good or bad, most of us tend to keep those hidden from the world. However, when it comes to your soulmate, there is no need to hide any part of yourself. Your soulmate is the one person who will always accept everything that makes you who you are.

Sign #10: You Feel Completely Yourself With Them

Finally, when you know you’ve found the one, you will feel completely at home with them. You don’t feel the need to change or be anyone else and you know that this is the person you are meant to be with. Every day, you learn something new about yourself or your partner and you become more deeply connected.

Ultimately, the search for your soulmate is a personal journey and one that cannot be rushed or forced. You will go through many people until you find the one and that’s perfectly normal. As long as you keep looking for someone who fits the ten criteria above and who makes you feel like you can be yourself, then you’ll know that you’re on the right track. So keep your eyes open and trust that you will find your soulmate – the one who is truly meant for you.
