Who Is a Soulmate?
A soulmate is a special person with whom you have a deep connection. Your hearts and minds connect at a higher level. Someone who makes you feel like you’re high on cocaine.
A connection based on unconditional love, respect, and trust. You can feel free and let yourself loose around your soulmate. And they won’t judge you or use your fears and past against you.
Do soulmates exist? The answer is YES. Soulmates are real and they exist. However, there’s no single person specifically meant for you.
Do Soulmates Exist in the Bible?
The bible talks a lot about love, but not soulmates. So, the term soulmate is not mentioned in the bible. Or at least not in the context people understand soulmates.
However, the concept of soulmates exist in the bible, but under a different name, rib. And as they say, a rose by any other name remains a rose.
When Christians talk about “finding my rib,” they’re talking about finding a soulmate.
Nevertheless, the idea of soulmates holds a biblical reference. In Genesis 2:23, the bible talks about the flesh of my flesh and bone of my bone. The concept of soulmates originates from this verse.
In Isaiah 34:16, the bible says, none shall lack a mate. The verse solidifies the belief that there’s someone for everyone.
Do soulmates exist in the bible? Yes, but a different name, rib. Finding your rib is akin to finding your soulmate.
In effect, the bible backs up the soulmates concept.

Every relationship has its highs and lows. If issues go unresolved, the relationship breaks. Soulmates are not immune to breakups.

Sometimes waiting for better makes you bitter. Don’t just sit and waste away your life waiting for “the one.” Disappointments might break you when they don’t show up.
Don’t let life pass you by. Go out, make friends, and have fun. After all, you never know where, how, or when you’ll meet your soulmate. Don’t allow your fantasies to put your life on hold.
4. Ignoring Red Flags

You’ll risk it all even when the writing is on the wall. You’ll endure and suffer in a toxic relationship because you want to make it work.
Always be aware of toxic and selfish relationships. Don’t treat everyone you meet or date as your soulmate.
5. Banking Your Hope on One Person
Believing there’s only one human for you in the world is dangerous. Because you’ll spend your life waiting or holding on to one person.
Only to get disappointed when it turns out he/she isn’t “the one.” And picking yourself up and starting over becomes impossible. You’ll end up bitter and angry about love.
Normalize going out and making new friends
