    Wow - surprised I didn't find a topic on this but here goes.


    Do you guys believe in everyone having that one true love? That soul-mate? The one person that can spend the rest of eternity in bliss and their love for one another is legendary? Okay, maybe I'm getting a little dramatic but really. I'm curious to know if the guys here believe in a intimate, romantic (not Sex in the City) soul-mate.

    AND (this is the real question I want to ask) do you believe that some people just aren't meant to have someone in the romantic sense?

    OR

    Do you believe that it doesn't exist and that people just go from person to person and it's just random the way their feelings for each other turn out.

    True love = someone you care about for way more than sex. This could be family, best friends, etc.

    Soul mate = someone you enjoy being around as much as possible, share interests with, share intimate (not necessarily sexual) times with, and would lay down your life for if it came down to the wire.

    So yes, I believe in true love and soul mates.

    If you're asking about your first "true love" also being your "soul mate" and forming an LTR that lasts a lifetime, no, I don't believe in that. The days of having "only one" are gone. Now having "only one" [at a time] has taken its place.

    Yes, but maybe my definition is not the same as everyone else. I see a soul mate as someone with whom I want to be a better person and who wants to be a better person being around me. I don't think it's a Disney tale, and I'm not saying there's only one in the whole world.

    You couldn't find any topics on soul mates?

    Wrong place searching, wrong keywords all combined with a little bit of laziness and my need to define it as my own. icon_cool.gif

    I'm just messing with you.
    I just knew that the true love subject is almost as popular as the ones on racism, falling in love with straight friends, why Republicans/Democrats are destroying the universe, coming to terms with very religious family members or neighbors, if muscle men like skinny guys, or some masc/gay-stereotype shenanigans.
    Also, the search button is my true love.

    I think it's possible. But then again you could be a lot of other people's soul mate and none of them could be yours. I know someone with that issue...icon_cry.gif

    Yes, and yes. I also believe in kindred spirits.

    I think everyone has someone out ther for them, some people even have multiple people out there for them. The problem is finding them.

    "Do you guys believe in everyone having that one true love? That soul-mate?"

    Yes, and the best part is that there are many. You change as you go along through life, and so I think your possible matches increase. Once you and another guy fit, you keep each other company throughout the changes that life demands of you. icon_wink.gif

    What is true love? A fairy tale idealized state of perpetual joy with another? No. A state in which two people mutually care about each other a great deal, and find both satisfaction and surmountable difficulty in their time together? Then yes.

    I don't believe in soul-mates or one-true-loves in the Hollywood sense. I believe that there are people who have great chemistry together. People are complicated, and it's always amazing to see two people who get along so well that it seems like they were meant for each other. There's nothing magical about it. We just can't comprehend all of the factors that go into making a legendary couple.

    Absolutely! If we avail ourselves to Love...it will come. If we stay stuck in the immature, unevolved, stereotypical state of craving "hotness" we may find some momentary sex, catch an infection or two...or threeicon_eek.gif and that's about it. If we Love ourselves, take care of ourselves physically, mentally and spiritually, if we're kind to other people and open our hearts...Love will find us...no need to search icon_smile.gif

    "We just can't comprehend all of the factors that go into making a legendary couple."

    Hmm... I think you can; they're just people that are in love with each other and all that that entails, and also simply love each other. The two go together well I think. The two kinds of love also mean you're going to be very, very considerate of one another. It makes it rock.

    It's obviously just an opinion, or maybe a philosophy, since I haven't found my "soulmate" yet, but I think it takes a lot more than just being in love. I think to make a couple last, they have to be compatible on many levels, not just fall in love.

    I agree. But really, we're plain old us. Nothing special. It happened. So think about that when you think of possibility.

    You could not be more wrong. You two are VERY special. You just don't realize it. There aren't many couple like you in this world.

    Actually I think there are, and have met a few, here and IRL. They, and us are no different or more wonderful than you, you know. It's all great potential, and it makes me grin for you.

    I believe in all the myth, mystery, disease, and dialect of love. Over a lifetime we're granted lusts, lessons, heartthrobs, and heartaches to teach us what we truly want; but more importantly who we really are to others, and to our'selves. I believe we can love truly and deeply, time and again. I've fallen for guys that remind me lots of myself, but are polar opposites of eachother. Even crushes have been worlds apart...but regardless of love lost or found, I still believe I'll meet someone, that I deserve somebody! Each of you who still consider your pulse useful should find it in you feel this way for yourselves; if its not below you.

    I don't believe in "one true love" this is a big world and there are many people in it. I believe there are certain people out there that you will feel something for due to personalities and chemistry. But there are things that change in time and people drift apart sadly and someone might find someone else...

    It just depends on where you are and hopefully someone you are compatible with...
