According to Wikipedia, the word soulmate is: a person with whom one has a feeling of deep and natural affinity, love, intimacy, sexuality, spirituality, and/or compatibility. What a nice thought it is to think there is that one person who is meant for you. To believe that fate has a hand in everything, and no matter what, what's meant to be, will be. I used to think I fell into this category of people, and although I have not totally neglected this idea, I have however become quite skeptical. Out of the millions and billions of people on this planet, how on Earth could there only be one person for me. I'm sure there are plenty of men I would be compatible or content with, but I'm not someone who is looking for just ordinary.

I guess what I should say is that I do believe God has that one special person created just for me, but it seems almost impossible that I'll find him. How many people out there have really found their "soulmate"? Decisions we make every day can change the outcome of the rest of our lives. What if I make a choice that doesn't lead me to this person, or what if he does. On an even worse note, what if the person God has for you thinks they are in love with someone else before he meets you? Then what? It just seems like an awful lot has to go right for two people to find each other, and us humans are pretty good at screwing things up and making the wrong decisions.

How can we be sure that no matter what we'll end up with our soulmate? I guess the real question isn't whether or not I believe in soulmates, but whether or not I believe in fate? If fate exists, then no matter what choices I make or what path I take in life "the one" will at some point cross mine.

It's kind of scary to think about. I don't believe anyone really wants to end up alone. I know I don't. I guess what it really comes down to is I just have to have faith, and continue to believe in love and the idea of fate, and hope that one day I will meet the man God has prepared for me.
