Soul mates are about work, not play

The word “soul” opens a gigantic can of karma. While dating and light relationships are all about fun and playfulness, soul mates are all about deep emotional support, trust and faith. When you choose to go deeper with someone, you’re opening yourself up–you get emotionally naked. Susan Strong, San Mateo-based astrologer and metaphysical counselor jokes, “Sometimes our soul mates become our cross to bear. You marry someone who is your soul mate and, over time, you realize you’re connected not just through chemistry, but because you are there to help each other.”

Work not play. I often say that a relationship is the hardest job you will ever have, second only to raising a child, sometimes. We often meet those who touch our souls, these people are our true friends, but our soulmates, open themselves up to us as we open ourselves up to them. This allows our souls to intertwine, compliment and support eachother, that is what I feel a soulmate is.

In today's disposeable society, longevity isn't valued or taught. We no longer have the tools to maintain long term relationships. Finding your soul mate is the easy part. Finding your soul mate and having a mutually equvalent commitment to making it last is nigh on impossible.

that's for sure, everything seems to be aimed at destroying the unit we know as man and wife, and all couples to include same sex couples

Im a naturally 'deep' person & i will admit i can be hard work when im in a relationship.

Ive had 4 main relationships in my life (2 of those with the same man, we split & got back together years later). Each relationship was very intense & i wouldnt have it any other way.

I cant be with a man who is 'flighty' with his feelings. I prefer to be with a man who is as deep as i am.

I am stubborn but will admit when in error.

When it comes to a relationship, stubborness can be a very good thing, I was too stubborn to just give up, to this day I'm not sure if that was a good thing or not.

Excuse me...didn't quite follow that. Was that saying that same sex couples is part of what's eroding traditional marriage???

nope, quite the opposite, things like the economy, NAFTA, government regulations, peer presure, these are the things that are affecting all relationships, same sex or oposite sex. Sorry about the confusion, was a little lazy when I realised that I had neglected same sex relationships in my comment and added them on without checking my writing for clarification. As for marriage, the word itself is owned by the Catholic Church, so they get to determine it's definition, and I think we all know just how flexible and understanding they can be, ie The Crusades, the dark Ages, The Spanish Inquistiion

Working together side by side through thick and thin and the laughter and play are just some of the benefits reaped. {=}

Thank you very much for clearing that up. What you say makes a lot of sense, although now I'm going back to read the other posts to get the full scope...
