Who is my soulmate? 18 ways to know instantly

There are so many ways to love another person.

I mean, there’s romantic love, which is an affectionate and intimate connection.

Then there’s platonic love, which is a non-romantic friendship that’s typically reserved for family members and close friends.

But what about soulmate love?

How do you know if the person in front of you is truly your perfect match?

Here are 10 signs they’re your soulmate.

1) If you’ve found your soulmate, you’ll know it

More often than not, when people meet their soulmates, they know it.

It’s like a sixth sense. They just know.

It’s like this strong and inexplicable attraction to this person. You don’t know what it is but your gut is telling you that there’s something special about them and you know that they’re meant to be a part of your life.

Now, most people will probably try to shake off this feeling as being normal physical attraction or liking the person because they seem nice. I mean, how could they possibly be meeting their soulmate?

If you could just learn to trust your instincts and listen to your gut, then, when you meet your soulmate – you’ll know it.

2) You will have an undeniably deep connection

Soulmates share a deep connection that goes beyond anything they’ve experienced before.

If you meet someone with whom you share an emotional, mental, physical, and even spiritual connection with, then trust me, you’ve met your soulmate.

You’ll feel like you’ve known each other your entire lives, as though you share some kind of special bond with this person, even though you just met.

It will feel like you’re meeting your other half – because that’s what soulmates are – two halves of one whole.

This deep connection will likely be instantaneous and will only grow stronger as the two of you get to know each other better.

You’ll feel like you’ve spent your entire life searching for this person, and now that you’ve found them, you can’t imagine living another day without them.

3) You’ll feel like you’ve come home from a long journey

Have you ever been somewhere and felt like you’ve been there before? Or like you belong there, even though you’ve only been there once?

When you’ve found your soulmate, you’ll feel like you’ve come home after a long journey. You`ll know that you’re exactly where you are supposed to be.

You may have felt lost or unfulfilled for a long time like you’ve been looking for something but have yet to find it. You may have tried dating a few different people, but you’ve never felt a real connection with them.

Once you meet your soulmate, it’ll feel like all of that uncertainty and longing has disappeared.

You’ll feel like you’ve finally found what you’ve been searching for your entire life.

4) You can be yourself around this person

Have you ever dated someone and felt like you had to be someone you weren’t?

I know I have.

I don’t mean that you had to pretend to be someone completely different, it’s more like you had to hide certain parts of yourself so that the other person wouldn’t run away.

But the beautiful thing about finding your soulmate is that you feel like you can be yourself around them. You don’t have to hide the ugly, insecure, and weird parts.

When you find that one special person who makes you feel like you can be yourself, it’s undeniable proof that the two of you are soulmates.

You want to be around this person all the time because they accept you for who you are.

They support you and love you for everything that you stand for, even the parts of your personality that you feel like you need to hide from the rest of the world. You don’t have to put on a show for this person. They already get you.

And what’s more, they can be themselves around you. You love them just the way they are – imperfections and all.

5) You feel safe

A truly loving relationship makes you feel safe in every way. It makes you feel like you can let your guard down and be yourself without fear of judgment or rejection.

When you’ve found your soulmate, you’ll feel safe in this relationship.

This person is your safe place. They’re the person who will be there for you when life gets difficult, who will love and support you through thick and thin.

A soulmate won’t abandon you when times get tough; they’ll be the one you run to for comfort when the world seems too heavy for you to carry on your own.

So if you’ve met someone who makes you feel like no matter what, everything will be ok, then you’ve found your soulmate.

6) They’re your best friend and confidant

One of the best ways to know if you’ve found your soulmate is if you find that you’ve found your best friend and confidant all in one.

A loving relationship is an important part of life, but so is having an amazing best friend.

When you find that one person who is all of these things, you’ve probably found your soulmate.

The two of you want to go on adventures together and explore the world. You want to share your hopes, dreams, and fears with this person, even if you’re not entirely sure they’re something you should share with someone.

It just feels right.

7) You have a strong feeling that your soulmate is your “other half”

Have you ever felt like you’re missing a piece of yourself?

I felt that way ever since I was a little girl. Like, there’s someone out there who would fit perfectly with me and complete me on a spiritual level. That feeling didn’t go away until I met my husband a few years ago.

When I met him, I felt like I was staring in the mirror. I don’t mean in the literal sense. But, I knew that he was my other half –  he was what I needed to finally feel complete.

I’d been waiting for him my whole life.

Now, you may have a very full life. You may have accomplished so much, built a wonderful career, travelled the world, you’re surrounded by wonderful people who love you – and yet, until you meet that someone who feels like your other half, you’ll never feel truly complete.

8) Your connection is beyond romantic

Having a romantic connection with someone doesn’t necessarily mean that you’ve found your soulmate.

And the connection you feel with your soulmate goes beyond mere romance.

It may be an intense and overwhelming feeling of love, friendship, and even family. You may feel like you’ve known each other your entire lives and that you share a special bond that can’t be broken.

This is the only person who truly understands you; who gets you on every level.

Have you met that someone? Not sure they’re your soulmate?

I know a fun way to find out for sure.

Just answer a few simple questions and the Psychic Love Robot will tell you whether you’ve met your soulmate or not.

Oh gone on, you’ve nothing to lose.

9) You balance each other out

They’re the yin to your yang.

One of the signs that you’ve found your soulmate is that they balance out your life.

Being with your soulmate doesn’t mean being with an exact replica of yourself. That would lead to a relationship that’s very one-sided.

Instead, your soulmate has the same core values as you do, but they have their own personality. Their own likes and dislikes and maybe even a different outlook on life.

The great thing about finding your soulmate is that you’re able to open each other’s eyes to new perspectives.

The best relationships are ones in which both partners are willing to learn and grow.

10) They make you want to be a better version of yourself

It’s easy to get caught up in your own bubble and forget that the world still exists outside your four walls. But that’s no way to live a fulfilling life.

A true soulmate is going to make you want to be a better version of yourself. They’re going to inspire you to reach your full potential and live the best life you can possibly live.

If your partner is doing anything less than that, then they might not be the one for you.

When I met my husband, there were so many things that I wanted to do but was too scared to try.

I wanted to learn Spanish and take up jazz dance and get my Masters degree, but something held me back.

But when I met him, I felt like I could do all those things and many others. And I did! He makes me better and I hope that I make him better too. That’s what soulmates are.

11) The chemistry is off the charts

Another way to know if you’ve found your soulmate is if the chemistry between you and your partner is off the charts.

It’s sexual chemistry. It’s emotional chemistry. It’s intellectual..

You feel this intense desire to be with this person all the time.

You think about them all the time and miss them when you’re apart.

This intense chemistry is the sign that you’ve found your perfect match. This is the sign that you’ve found the one person you’ll always be able to truly connect with.

12) You hurt when they hurt

When you find love, that bond becomes so strong that it hurts when they hurt.

You’ll have an urge to make them feel better, to keep them safe and protected. You’ll want to heal any uneasiness they’re experiencing in their life, and you’ll want to be there for them through the pain they’re currently experiencing.

You can’t help but feel their pain. Their struggles become your struggles, and you’ll become very aware of how you can try to help them through it.

You’ll feel their pain because it’s linked to your own, and you’ll want to do whatever it takes to make it go away.

13) You think they’re the most amazing person in the world

This might sound a little bit crazy, but if you think your partner is the most amazing person in the world, then you’ve most likely found your soulmate.

Isn’t the whole point of finding a soulmate to fall in love with someone who is your perfect match? Someone who ticks all of your boxes?

Someone who you want to be with for the rest of your life?

The love and admiration you’ll have for this person is pure and comes from deep within your soul. You’ll feel it in every part of your being. It goes beyond mere infatuation.

You’ll feel it in your heart and in your mind. It’s something you’ve never experienced before.

14) It’s almost like you have a telepathic relationship

Have you met someone with whom you share such a deep connection with that it’s as if you can read each other’s minds?

They’ll call you when you think of them.

You’ll share the same dreams.

You’ll finish each other’s sentences.

And, you don’t need to hear their voice or see their face to know what they’re thinking. There is no need for words.

When they’re feeling sad, you can sense it.

When you’re upset, they know it.

It’s almost like you can communicate telepathically…

15) Being together is all you need to be happy

When you’re with someone whose presence is enough to make you happy, then you know you’ve found your soulmate.

You don’t need exotic vacations or fancy dinners out. You don’t need expensive clothes and a big house.

Don’t get me wrong, those things can be pretty great. But you can’t buy happiness.

All you need to be happy is that special person there by your side. That’s all.

16) They get you

If you meet someone who really gets you – who gets your quirks, your weird habits, and your deepest, darkest secrets – then you’ve met your soulmate.

It’s like they’re the only person in the whole world who truly understands you.

You can open up to them about your hopes, your dreams, and your fears. They get it. They know what you’re all about and they like you just the way that you are.

17) They’re always there for you

Your soulmate is always going to be there for you – and I mean really there for you when nobody else is.

I mean, they’re not just going to be there for you when it’s convenient for them. They’ll be there when you need them to be. Period.

If you’re in trouble – they’ll be there before anyone else. They’re going to drop whatever it is they’re doing to come when you really need them.

If only everyone could find their soulmate, what a wonderful world it would be.

18) They help you realize your dreams

Finally, your soulmate is someone who helps you realize your dreams and ambitions.

They listen to what you want out of life and tell you whether or not those goals are attainable.

If they’re not, then they’ll offer suggestions on how to make them possible.

For example, if one of your goals is to open a restaurant in the next few years, then your soulmate will help you figure out how much money that will take and what kind of training it’s going to take for you to get there.

If your partner tells you that your dreams are stupid, and they don’t seem interested in helping you soar – then they’re not your soulmate.

Final thoughts

A soulmate is someone who you share a deep and profound connection with, one that transcends the physical realm. They’re your perfect match, someone who is destined to be yours.

They’re more than a lover; they’re also a best friend and confidant, someone who understands you on a level that no one else can.

A soulmate is someone who, when you finally find them, will complete your life, making it richer and more fulfilling.

Now you know what signs to look for, you can use this information to figure out if the person in front of you is truly your soulmate (oh I really hope they are!)
