Soul mates are not necessarily permanent.

Like the ending of a fairytale, we’re often raised to believe that a soul mate is our “happily over after.” How old were you when realized that fairy tales don’t come true? Soul mates are certainly considered the prince charming and his princess of modern romance. Yet what happens if your romance goes sour–that soul mate turns out to be a bum? Of course you’re not out of luck. You move on, heal, and open up to the next soul mate. If you look at the traditional idea of soul mates, your beloved, you’ll realize that a higher force may have more than one love in store for you. To love someone and be loved is a deeply spiritual state.

In the words of St. Theresa of Avila,

Accustom yourself continually to make many acts of love, for they enkindle and melt the soul.

This is the last part of the article examining Soul Mates. Some contraversy has been stirred, and I have discovered a little more about how I feel about the concepts of SoulMates. I have stated in a response that we grow as a person, sometimes this creates a gap between soul mates, and we must move on, sometimes both soulmates grow in the same direction, this is what I feel a true Soul Mate is.

I'm not so sure I believe in the drive up theory of soul mate, 'NEXT!'. At one time when I was captive of the belief of a soul mate, I beleived it was a one time, life time, and beyond thing. Now, I think I've been tainted one too many times to allow myself to go there. Soul mates know your every thought and mood and the two grow together. Not apart. And I don't necessarily beleive that every individual finds theirs in their lifetime. Not that we aren't looking, and maybe that's the kicker, we aren't supposed to be looking.

I never believed in "soulmates" until I found mine. We have been together (internet only) for about a year and a half. Our relationship is becoming rocky, to say the least. I do feel that he will always be my soulmate and the love of my life, but I also think you can have more than one soulmate. Also a soulmate doesn't have to be a lover. It can be a best friend, anyone, actually.
