Finding a soulmate is difficult. That’s because while it is easy to connect with others on a sexual or superficial level, it is more difficult to connect with someone’s mind, body and spirit.
That’s what a soulmate connection truly is. If you’ve been with someone for a while, you may be wondering how to tell if they are your true love. Here are six signs that prove they are.
1. They’re Reliable and Trustworthy
Trust and reliability are two of the most important qualities a soulmate should have. If you ask them to run an errand for you, will they do it? If they have coffee with an old flame, can you trust them to keep the boundaries platonic? Without trust and reliability in your relationship, you’ll have many fights coming your way while you’re together.
2. They Know How to Deal With Your Flaws
We all have dark secrets, deep regrets and shame. But a true soulmate will love you and accept you in spite of yours. You will feel comfortable opening up to them. If you can’t, they are not meant for you.
3. They Fill in the Gaps
In the past, a significant other was someone who was your better half. But that concept has evolved. Today, a true love is someone who fills in the gaps created by your struggles, including the emotional, mental and physical issues you struggle with daily.
4. They Discuss Long-Term Relationship Goals
A soulmate has plans for your future together. Whether it’s marriage, children or moving in together, they’re your soulmate if they intend to stick around for the long haul. Where will you be in five, 10 or 20 years? Your soulmate knows and wants to share it with you.
5. They Can Handle You at Your Worst
When you’re at your worst, a soulmate is someone who is there to support you. That’s what separates a keeper from someone who isn’t worth your time. A soulmate provides the rational voice when you’re being irrational and calms you down when you are feeling agitated or anxious.
6. They’re All Love and Little (or No) Drama
Soulmates support their partners through thick and thin, and if you’re with your true love, you’ll notice that your relationship has very little drama. Most of the drama comes from the outside. A soulmate is there to feed your soul, connect with it and make it happy.
