Everyone needs someone who understands them and cares for them unconditionally. Sure we have parents and siblings, but the one person who will truly get you is a soulmate. Most children are introduced to the idea of soulmates in movies or television shows. Two people meet and just fall in love with each other. It is a common ending for most princess Disney movies.
Soul mates differ from life partners. Some people, not ever encountering a soul mate or soul connection, settle down with a life partner. A soulmate is a very important person in our lives and the relationship is a very reverent one. It is a relationship that will change our lives, one that comes with a very deep soul attraction, one that is sure to last a lifetime. Your soulmate need not be your romantic partner, he/she can be your friend, a colleague, or one of your own family members. Now comes the much-asked question: how do I know whether or not I have met my soulmate? How will I recognize him/ her when I cross paths with them? Let the following list answer and help you to recognize your soulmate when you meet them.

Have you met your soulmate?
Check out these 15 signs to know for sure.
1. You just get each other
Ever met two people who finish each other’s sentences? Some people call that spending too much time together, but I call it a soul mate connection. You might experience this with your best friend or your mother, but it is the telltale sign of a soul mate when you experience it with your partner.
2. You just know it.
Something deep inside tells you this is the perfect one for you. It’s as if there is a spiritual force pushing you to let go of everything you previously expected and to give of yourself completely.
3. You respect who they are
“If only he were…”.. This is a line unknown to your relationship if he/she is your soulmate. You do not look for change in that person but love them the way they are with their dose of crazy, naughtiness and love. You do not try to change them into what you want to be but rather embrace the whole package they come with.
4. You can hear the other person’s silent thoughts.
With soulmates, there is such depth to your relationship that you can feel and hear what your partner is thinking, even if it is not verbally expressed.
5. You feel each other’s pain.
You stand in each other’s shoes. You know each other so well, that the second he walks in the door, you can tell how his day was. You feel each other’s feelings: sadness, worry, and stress. And you share each other’s happiness and joy.
6. You can imagine a future together
This is one of the straight answers to knowing if you have found your soulmate. When you dream of yourself 5 years from now, they would be a prominent color of your life. It is easy to picture them being a part and parcel of your life.
7. You fall in love with his (or her) flaws
No relationship is perfect, and even soulmate relationships will experience ups and downs. Still, that bond will be much harder to break. Soulmates have an easier time of accepting, even learning to love, each other’s imperfections.
8. You feel secure and protected
Regardless of the gender of your partner, he or she should always make you feel secure and protected. Your soulmate will make you feel like you have a guardian angel by your side. A person who plays on your insecurities, whether consciously or subconsciously, is not your soul mate.
9. They make you a better person
Do not mistake this with trying to change who you are but rather they make you evolve. Their presence and their persona fashions you into being a better person or brings out the best in you, the one who have always wanted to shine out. This is a true mark of a soulmate for as the relationship evolve, the persons too evolve. Does any friends or either of your parent fit the picture in your mind now?
10. They just get you
Sometimes a look or the bleakness in a smile is all they need to get what’s bothering you. Words are few for the love and understanding is deep. They will not judge you and it’s so easy to open up about the best and worst in you for they embrace you as you are and understand you easily, a connection you fail to share with any other.
11. You’re not afraid of having a conversation.
Conversations can be challenging. Expressing concerns or attempting to make decisions is uncomfortable. Soulmates know that if they join together, they will be able to work it out.
12. You don’t experience jealousy.
Pretty girls at the office or handsome personal trainers aren’t a threat to your relationship. You are secure knowing that you are the only one.
13. From deep down you know it
You feel it, you know it from within yourself that he is the one. You know it in your gut the other puzzle to complete you is right in front of you. You stop searching for more, you stop wanting more for everything that you have wanted and yearned for, you have it right there for your eyes to see and mind to accept.
14. You respect each other’s differences and opinions.
You know you have different opinions. Often soulmates are polar opposite. At times this is challenging. These are the times when you are being forced to let the other person complete you. You still have your own opinion, but instead of agreeing to disagree, there is a deep level of respect for each other. You listen and honor the differences.
15. It’s intense
A soulmate relationship may be more intense than normal relationships, in both good and sometimes bad ways. The most important thing is that, even during negative episodes, you’re focused on resolving the problem and can see beyond the bad moment.
