No man is an island entire of itself
I think that it is possible to find people who complement oneself so perfectly that soulmate makes a good description. I think that I have found two such people in my life. One was my wife, and it lasted for over 20 years and could have lasted for life. Our family was ripped apart by a chain of events started by medical condition in my daughter which affects two people in a million, and the woman I married does not exist any more. The second was more debatable because my age precludes making her fully complete.
Can everyone have one? I suppose that it depends on the state of ones emotional development and what one feels necessary to achieve completeness. Some people seem so devoid of humanity that I would think it impossible.
And therefore never send to know for whom
the bell tolls; it tolls for thee.
I also don't believe that people have souls, but you can't parse a word and insist that each part has its literal meaning. In the comment I was quoting you were echoing Creamy and I'm sure that she was using it in my sense.
I certainly did not inisist that there be only one such person. As I said, in my opinion I have found two, and I've only met .0001% of the people in the World. [Actually maybe close to a third person, but he was a gay guy and I couldn't go the extra mile.]
I think that with one of the people for which "soulmate" could be applied the amount of work involved is vanishingly small.

Note that I did not say a person.
You are also using "soul" as a separate concept and thus destroying the meaning of the compound word. The person I married no longer exists - so how can she be my soulmate?
You can't change them as you wish - they are or they aren't.
I don't care what you call them, but "really fucking awesome mates" doesn't have quite the right ring to it. I am trying to point out that there are a very limited number of people who make you in some sense emotionally, intellectually, physically, whatever, complete.
It doesn't put pressure on the relationship - you don't have to worry about anything - it's just right.
OK - let's agree to differ, says he, trying hard to remember what effort was required, that didn't just come naturally on both parts
Agreed at last.
I thought RFAM was as good as it gets.
there are a very limited number of people who make you in some sense emotionally, intellectually, physically, whatever, complete. agree.
it doesn't put pressure on the relationship - you don't have to worry about anything - it's just right. agree again.
I am my soul my mate,been this way for years now,didnt kill me.
Maybe I should try shenzhen stuff more,or QQ .
I am simply trying to bring non-physical comfort to YCGs. Immature people can have equally immature soulmates.
