    INFs's do you believe in "soulmates" ? and "true love" ?

    I don't know how to explain it but there's a part inside me that believe in "soulmates " but my other logical part deny it completely, but I'm not sure, my best friend who is an ENFJ keeps telling me that " soulmates" are true and one day he will find his soulmate, in my personal point of you , I think " soulmate" is just a term used to describe the person who's the right for you, that person who can understand you, who would love for who you are .. If soulmates are true and meant for each other then how come there are a lot of people who have never met theirs ?? if sounds.. somehow...so fictional to me ..
    However I certainly believe in true love , because I can see the proof , my cousin who has been single for too long, she met this guy at the university and slowly their friendship developped to something deeper and then she got married to the same guy last year , she sounds the happiest woman in Earth..
    Well.. I hope that one day I will be able to live the same experience...
    And I wish you all Love and joy too !!

    Yes, in a sense, depending on your definition. I believe that there is an ideal potential, a best case scenario where we are all mated with our best match, if one exists. People tend not to live on that timeline. Do happy, fulfilling relationships ever happen? Yes. In my line of work, I get to hear about the bad mates and the good ones, and I know it is possible. It seems that some work out too perfectly to be accidental, but sometimes people wait their whole lives to find them, and get stuck with plenty of imperfect mates on the way. Some never find them.

    I hate that I ever stopped believing in "the one," because I want someone to think of me that way someday, rather than seeing me as one of many possibilities that could have worked just as well. I believe, with how I have been greatly and improbably blessed in other areas, that I will receive exactly what I am supposed to when I am ready for it. For all I know, the one I have now could be my soulmate. I don't trust my feelings about these matters anymore, having felt that others would be. I don't feel the same expectation this time. I've grown weary of hoping, and that tends to be when the blessings come... just in time to keep me from growing completely cynical. The embers of hope that sometimes seem nearly dormant can be reignited as long as they aren't allowed to die entirely.

    I don't personally believe in soul mates in sense that there is somebody who is waiting outside and is perfect for you and was meant for you (at least not at first). However, I think it is possible to be close to a soul mates if both the individuals in a relationship realizes how to be one and hence it is possible to establish the soul mate relation (concept).

    Instead of an individual being innately the soul mate, both individuals in a relationship with each other have to create themselves to be a "soul mate". It is relationship after all. This however does not work with just about every person but given the somewhat right person for each other I think it is possible to work. I even think slightly more than average personal differences between two people in a relationship have the potential to be soul mates given the circumstances in establishing a soul mate relation is available and possible.

    Being a soul mate is something you have to let happen to a certain degree. I think it is possible that if you do not realize the potential of how "soul mate" you might be to another individual that you are in relationship with chances are that you might lose the potential to be a soul mate as well. I think the better you prove yourself to be a soul mate the more closer you are coming to finding your own soul mate if you find such individual that have proven themselves how to be a soul mate too. I'm not talking that you prove to another individual solely but also most importantly how you prove to yourself but also perhaps the world around you. I also think that establishing a soul mate relation between two individuals -- even given the right circumstances -- takes time so it is not until at least a long time both you and your significant other will find out whenever you are soul mates or not.

    The soul mate relation wouldn't work unless both individuals in a relationship works on their soul mate potential. If an individual screws this up without proper understanding with just about oneself and the significant other such individual is in relationship with and perhaps the world around them the "soul mate" potential might break.

    I think intrapersonal integrity is one of the fundamental core traits to be a proper soul mate and I am talking about the kind of lifelong integrity. I think chances that if you are often false to yourself chances are that you could be a bad soul mate and in turn will have it hard to reveal the potential soul mate in another person even considering the other person you might be in relationship with is fulfilling his or her soul mate potential. I can not define what exactly is considered to be true to yourself since people are different and hence have different perceptions of what is considered such but the matter of fact that being true to oneself is a thing that is to a certain extent possible to just about everybody out there if one allows it. But just glancing on the surface: being true to yourself is a holistic concept and is not possible to put down in simple and concrete terms.

    You have to look in the hidden areas in the world, yourself and your partner in order to find spiritual connection because I think such connection lies upon an abstract spectrum. Dig under the surface and attempt to find unity. That is hard work even when it comes to feelings and I think that is possible (abstract feelings). It is not until you are able to do this that you will find your soul mate and therefore the potential of establishing the soul mate relation. Not everyone is able to do so either. Not everybody wants either but we're talking about soul mates here. Between the ether.

    I apologize if this was somewhat off-topic.

    I don't believe in a soulmate, at all. I don't think there's a perfect match either.

    I think it has something to do with the only "relationship" I've had. I loved him very much, and he felt the same, but he was very cynical about the whole thing. He and I were not a perfect match, and we knew it but we liked it that way. I've never believed that people can be perfect for each other and I would never want them to be. To me, it seems a lot more challenging and meaningful if you can accept and love the differences of opinion, and each others problems.

    But I haven't had a lot of experience, so I'm quite sure that my opinion will change. Plus, I'm too young to have made any final decisions! xD I'd be foolish to believe otherwise.

    I dont believe in destiny or fate or love at first sight, but some times a person just feels right even though they may not conform to your preconceptions, assumptions and desires concerning the ideal mate "Whatever satisfies the soul is truth".
    I don't think there is only one person in the world that you may find this connection with. I have found it in an old friend, in a child.. heck, even my favourite musician.
    Following this, I dont necessarily believe time together is a quintessential element. I still dearly love that old friend, even though I never see them. And I know the feeling is reciprocal. It was real, it happened, it was strong, and the connection will live on outside of us. It never dies if it was real in the first place. It still grows on it's own accord.

    I think Kysinor hit the nail on the head. You don't find simply find this connection, and now that I think about it; perhaps you can find a soul mate anywhere. You just have to open your heart and they have to open theirs.
