Longing for Companion

As an ISTJ, I'm used to being alone. I like to work alone. I travel alone. I do things by myself. But now I think I'm coming to a point where I actually feel lonely. I'm longing for someone that just knows my heart. This is difficult to explain. I want him to be able to know what I'm feeling, know what to do or what to say by simply looking at me. I'm not asking for someone that can mind-read, but I want someone that is in tune with how I feel.
There are many people around me, and I am good friends with lots of them. But they come and go out of my life. I feel that we are only to cross paths for that short amount of time, then they have their own places to go. In some places, I feel that I am very different from the rest of the crowd. I told myself it's okay. My path is different from theirs. I'm different from the norm, and I don't know where I will end up at.
What I long for is someone that I can share my heart with, a best friend. I want to be able to share my entire life with this person. I hope that me and that person will be on the same path. That we will respect, love, and understand each other. We will work together to overcome whatever challenges that life brings. I want the peace and comfort of just knowing that someone deeply loves and cares for me, and I feel the same about him too. I want that soothing mellow harmonious feeling of simply being with that person.
This type of person is difficult to find. Even when all the bad people are filtered out, I still have to diligently search. There are many good people in this world, but I have to find someone for me. There are too many factors and issues that may come up. But once I finally found the one, I will never let him go. And I will cherish what I have. Is this too much to ask for? It seems like I'm looking for a soulmate.
