Are they real? Do you believe in them?
Live Fast. Die Young. Be Wild. Have fun.-LDR
I believe in them yes, but I dont know if what I think is the same thing as soulmate. Well anyway, I think that there are multiple people out there that can be your soul mate since people can be compatible with many others. But its not necessary to find one to experience happiness.

Is it me or love related threads are taking over the Misc. section? XD
Yes, I do believe in them just as Don Juan said:
There are those who do not believe that a single soul, born in heaven, can split into twin spirits and shoot like falling stars to earth. Where over oceans and continents, their magnetic forces will finally unite them back into one. But how else do you explain love at first sight?

I believe in both. I am going to tell you guys the story of how my parents met.
Both of my parents lived 2 blocks away from eachother their whole entire life up until college, but never met eachother until college. They went to the same high school, and hung around the same group of people, but never met eachother. Both of my grandmas, worked at the same bakery, and they became best friends. They tried to set up my mom and dad to go together to prom, but my mom got a date at the last minute, so she never got to meet or go with my dad. In college, my uncle Don threw a party around Christmas, my mom and dad were both at the party. My dad asked my uncle about my mom, and my uncle told him that she is great, but to wait asking her out until next year, because she is finishing up her last year of college. Next year, they were all at the same party again. My dad waited a whole year to ask my mom out, and when he did at the party, she said yes. 6 months later, they got married.
No, i think true love and love at first sight is total and utter bull spit. There is no fate, there is no one person for everyone, and there is deffinitely no love at first sight. Yes, there is infatuation at first site, but no one can be in love by just seeing someone. they know nothing about the person, but they're in love? no. they may love their looks, they may be in love with love, but they are not in love with the person. Also, if there are soulmates, why doesn't everybody find theirs? Because there is no such thing as a soul mate.
I am the kind of person who will believe in it only when it happens to me. If not, no; sorry. It's too much to hope for in the first place.

I'm sorry (not) sorry.
Doesn't really exist. It's fun to pretend, though.
nah, some people will stay with one another for a long time, but that's about it.

True love is not so farfetched. It's a stretch, sure, but it's not impossible.
Soulmates, to me, can't be possible. There is probably one person you wouldn't MIND spending the rest of your life with, but there is a strong chance that there is at least one other person out there with whom you could also have a happy life with.
Sure, I believe in them.
I will only believe in those two things when it happens to me.

I heard that true love is when the fire and passion dies. Love is something you work at, but with true love, it's something that doesn't feel like work. Love is a two way street. True love and soulmates? The former is real, but soulmates i don't believe because it just sounds like there is no work to love.
There is no absolute right and wrong. People judge as right what they personally consider pleasant, and judge as wrong what they personally consider unpleasant. Convincing others of what is right cannot be equated with teaching the Truth. It is just teaching others to agree with you. It is not about putting an end to error, but putting an end to opinions contrary to your own perceptions.~Lao Tzu
They are both things I wish to believe in but until I experience it myself will remain doubtful about.
And now it's time for: Spinxie's Not-so-Revolutionary Thoughts of Love!!!
First and foremost I believe that there is no such thing as ONE "true love." That being said, I don't even know what people expect the definition of "True love" to be; is everything else I've ever felt love wise been "fake?" I don't think so. I believe the heart is capable (and even naturally oriented towards) loving magnanimously. Just because your relationship didn't work out in the end doesn't mean that the love experienced throughout it wasn't "true." We are meant to fall in love multiple times, and sometimes we may love more than one person in seemingly amorous ways. Love grows, evolves, and develops with each time it's felt. Love also comes, in my opinion, in degrees according to spectrum. There's family love, self love, friendly love, and lovers' love, for example, and varying degrees within each of those. I do believe though, that eventually a person finds someone who simply... "fits." That being, in theory, a "soulmate."
Like others here, I believe there are SEVERAL soul mate possibilities out there for a person.
Why don't people end up finding theirs? Well, sometimes people stunt their chances: they commit prematurely to a lower lv love (lol, as defined by the "degrees" I mentioned), or it just doesn't happen. Doesn't mean that soul mates aren't not out there. Sometimes, though, for whatever reasons, people just don't end up finding one of theirs.
There can be the perfect kind of pizza at a shop downtown; the perfect kind of pizza just for me that I would LOVE. There may be a few chains scattered about, but I may never taste it.
True love and love at first sight...
See. I was a bit iffy on this concept at first. Logically, it seems more apt to lust at first site or simply be attracted. After all, a sentiment such as love, we'd like to think, is tied to strong emotions and should thus be based on substance more solid than mere shallow appearance. This, to an effect, is very true. In fact, most cases where young people claim to have experienced "love at first site" have usually been inspired by raging hormones. :P I, too, am guilty of this. Very.
I do believe in the concept.
I used to work at a nursing home, and I would meet the most adorable couples. One in particular caught my eye: an adorable elderly couple who would feed ice cream to each other and hold hands as they sat (they also read to each other). I asked them what their love story was one day. They were co-workers: she was a secretary and he worked at the office as well and as soon as he'd lain eyes on her, he proclaimed to have been smitten.
"I'm going to marry this woman," He'd resolved. She, however, hated his guts and thought he was the most obnoxious thing in the world (lol). He insisted though, subtly. He'd surprise her with flowers...the whole nine yards of wooing until eventually, like a fuzzy fungus, he grew on her and she agreed to a date.
Apparently, it went so fantastic that they did eventually marry...and stayed married for 74 years to come.
And they still held hands and read books to one another.
This wasn't the only example I'd heard of and or witnessed that attested to the "love at first site" theorum.
**insert "aww" or "vomiting" moment here**
And eventually, I experienced my own "epiphany of the heart." While chasing after yet another to-be doucebag (Musicians...e_e), I came to meet my fiance. He was the friend of some of my band-mates from our Visual Kei band (lol), and he'd come often to practices. I didn't like him at first -- he was rather Trollish. But, before long we started hanging out. He was the best friend of the guitarist who I was (admittedly) infatuating over. At least I wasn't kidding myself; I knew it was a puppy crush. Meanwhile, Kyle and I'd talk about everything and play games at his house. He somehow became my best friend in record time; it was effortless -- weiwuwei at its best. I remember being perplexed at this fact: he seemed to already have reached the level of trust and affection of my two best friends that I'd harbored for over eleven years, and yet I'd known him for just half of one. He just seemed to "fit." It didn't even seem like a conscious decision on my part. My everything just felt completely at ease/uncensored.
And at first I didn't think anything of him attraction-wise. He was just my friend; that was it. So it definitely wasn't that kind of love at first site. In fact I thought he had big teeth and a re-re smile (lol). What DID begin to happen though, was a strange ...almost spiritual sentiment that began to grow. It was a deep fondness; that's the best I can describe it. And while his friend, the guitarist, began trying to play careless ping-pong games with my heart, Kyle had become in the meantime smitten by me with what he'd later describe as: "the strangest feeling. You just felt like you belonged with me; like you made the picture complete. It was...weird. I saw how he treated you and I wanted nothing more than to show you that I loved you/would and could love you so much better." (<~ paraphrased :P)
It wasn't before long that I got fed up with the game the guitarist was feeding me (I wasn't one to take B.S. for long -- especially with infatuations), so I continued to spend my days at the Shire with the rest of the guys, or at Kyle's house playing Blazblue. Meanwhile, that fuzzy feeling kept growing, until one day... Suddenly, every cliche detail I'd ever heard exaggerated in a romance movie/novel/manga made some sort of sense. It came unexpectedly. It snuck in quietly and then ERUPTED bukaki-ninja-style all over my heart! (LOL, sorry). >D I was in love.
I'm not going to go into ridiculous detail, but things happened that separated us for three months (which was hell); he was on the floor crying desperately asking me not to go, I felt a wrenching in my soul that I've never experienced before...blahblahblah...and then, badda bing badda boom, three months later: I find him as soon as I can and we haven't looked back ever since. Two years and a half now...and I still read him to sleep, and he still holds my hand in his sleep. <3
Not saying that this is the ultimate love for me; I'm too practical for that. I'll get back to you all sixty five years from now. ;P
I will say though that finding a soul mate is ...an unmistakable experience. I used to worry with the "How will I know if/when I find one?" I made the mistake of trying to find connections/forevers in investments that were just meant to be small boss-battles. I loved strongly, really strongly, and made amazing friends because of it...but finding a soul mate, really, just like the old people used to say: "It just feels different."
I call it "blessed assurance." There literally is no worry; you just know.
But like I said; I'll get back to ya'll sixty five years (or four more months) from now and see how it's going. lol
I'm a realistic person, so, no. I believe in love, but things such as "True love" and "Soulmates" only bring a smile on my lips. These terms were idealistic from the very beginning providing just a good theme for stories and movies. They apply to fantasy, not to reality.
Believing in soulmates is like believing in Santa Claus when you're young, but your parents are the ones that put the gifts under your Christmas tree.

I believe, the only hard thing is when and where to find it/them.. Life's not an easy experience..
Sets made by Mira Kaiba!!!^^
An exchange for a little bit of happiness is a life shattering pain. Bend if you must not break.
I believe in true love. It's definable only by those who feel it. So I'll attempt to define it if/when I feel it.
As for soul mates.. I think you find someone, and when you fall in love and spend enough time with them, you become soul mates.
Fascinated by the rain, influenced by the wind. Adventure for fun.
To answer the OP, while I do believe in "true love" and "soulmates", I believe that these are things that one develops over time and works for, rather than it being something that one just "finds". If you meet someone that you want to spend the rest of your life with, then you have to make sure that you understand the needs of that individual and that they understand yours (a relationship is not going to work without this). By committing to this, you become soulmates.
Of course, being a polyamourous individual, I believe that this love and commitment can be applied to more than just one person.
This is my war face.
This is what happens to trolls who mess with me.
in true love yes, coz it's not every now and then that someone experience it. sometimes, people enter relationships to forget their past relationships, some enter even though it's more of good looks but not much of personality. true love accepts everything, every imperfection is like a part of perfection and acceptance.
in the case of soulmate, i think it's more of a word made for someone a person believes that everything seems to be so right as if it is destined and meant to be, which is the case when true love works out and as if there is no end to it.
I don't want to sound like a hippie but yeah, true love exist! *love and peace hand gesture*
We're made out of love, well mostly all of us. I think most of you have experience love, even when you said you haven't; I mean love does not relates only to loving a gf/bf... don't you love your parents? brothers? family? friends?
Soulmate, it's just a word with no universal definition u_u; I think each person alters its meaning with their own thought or idea of what a soulmate is..
Yes. I've found both.
I do believe in “true love” and soul mates”, however these are things that people need an unwavering dedication and passion for, developing and refining them over a lifetime, in order to make them a reality. They’re not storybook fantasies one finds at a set time and place, never to lose them once they’re found.Originally Posted by Ellxeeva
I do not believe that a “soul mate” is limited to just one person, or even a romantic partner while we’re at it. It can also apply to one’s dear friends, ones that understand you better than anyone else; those select and exceedingly rare individuals that you have an unwavering trust in, and vice-versa. This too can be seen as a form of “true love”.Originally Posted by SigmaSD
Bearing all this in mind, there may well be no absolute end when it comes to the existence of such things. Leave it up to the individual to decide whether such things are real; and whether or not they wish to make them real. If not, then it really doesn't matter what the truth is if they haven't the will to pursue and follow it through until the end.
