Soulmates...

"Once, a long long time ago,
all people had four legs & two heads
And then the god threw down
thunderbolts and split everyone into two
Each half then had two legs and one head.
But the separation left both sides with
a desperate yearning to be reunited.
Because they each shared the same soul.
And ever since then, all people spend
their lives searching for the other half of their soul."
- Gabrielle -



A few days ago, a friend asked me this question, "What's your definition of the word, soulmate?" I gave him my answer and both of us agreed, we have the same definition.



My question to you today is, if you already have a partner, i.e. a steady partner (bf/gf/husband/wife), do you think there's a possibility of having another soulmate (probably more than one?) other than your steady partner?

If your answer is yes, do you think you should have one? As in the other soulmate(s). Do you think this is well... right?

If your answers have been in the affirmative so far, then what's your definition of soulmate?



DYK if there's anyone who wanna be my soulmate? <-- Question: Do you think one can find a soulmate with this 'method'?

CHUP for Srilver! wakakakakaka!

may said...

I'm quite the old fashioned. the One I'm with for the rest of my life should be my soulmate lor. like that only romantic mah, hor?

Inevitable said...

For me this question ceased to exist, it is impossible for me to have 2 soulmates at one given time. I just don't have that kinds of luxury to do so... hehehe

Inevitable said...

May is only a minute behind me... keke

soul mate?

a^ben said...

waiseh` why apa hal talking about soul mate??? hee hee

I think i'll be bujang selama-lamanya liaw if k not find my soul mate` lols :D

Tiuniasing said...

i dun deny that i had been to this before in my past relationships, but i chose not to "switch" in the end and no regret until today. anyway, we broke up for other reason, not because of 3rd party.

i think, there is a possibility that i will meet someone whom can be my soulmate though i have a steady gf or wife, perhaps more suitable to be my soulmate. so it's up to me if i want to make a "switch". usually i choose not to switch unless both me and my current soulmate have got problem being together. i think every sweet moment that i spend with my gf/wife is much more valuable than the feeling that i have for a new potential soulmate.

Tiuniasing said...

"DYK if there's anyone who wanna be my soulmate?"

i think this is not a good way to find our soulmate, but it's an easy-to-answer question. :D

Winn said...

i m chupless:(


no la i dun think u can find soulmate like this.. i tot soulmate comes 2 ways as in both persons have to exprience something to feel it.

i have frens considered me soulmate last time..

i didnt feel so but i ddint wanna 'refuse' a 'soulmate' coz thats mean. but it didnt last oso. coz only one person contributing the other on-looking. hehe

Winn said...

but we can be 'siao-mate'.

wan or not? for a start ! hehe

Simple American said...

I agree with 94% and 87% of the people.

God only gives us one soulmate. Though in moments of weakness I am prone to infatuation.

The only exception is those who have gift of celibacy. In which case they don't get a soulmate.

"DYK if there's anyone who wanna be my soulmate?"

I bet there is one for you. Doubtful you find them like this, but God does have a sense of humor. It could happen. :)

zeroimpact said...

It's difficult to define...
It's all based on time and people
The right combination is a must...
Think about it
Right time and right people...
And other combinaition you all think ok!

frostier said...

soulmates? or soulmate?

sotongking said...

***think deeply***
soulmate? It exists?

Fantasy "Sticky" Flier said...

the definition is simple - someone with whom you can click with for the rest of your life....

I am old-fashioned too. :)

My soulmate will be my other half whom will unite with me from heart, soul, mind and body.

L B said...

I've lost my soul awhile ago.. but maybe the mate is not totally lost yet. CHUP! Well, and spoons.. Big Hugs from Ipoh!

Anonymous said...

soulmate? i think there is possibility. many people do not marry their soulmates. sad but this is life.

(i think God has sense of humour, like what Simple American said)

zeroimpact said...

:(
No think no answer mah
May be I let you know the answer later

plink said...

Haar?! o.O

Watching Shall We Dance a second time, izit?

If got partner (iflah) who is soulmate, then cannot have another one. For when we find another 'soulmate' the original magic is gone. Things will never be the same again... *sobz*

Eh, but if (iflah) can have, then I think we should have as many soulmates as possible. Right or wrong, you ask me, I ask liu? I'm just a little plink.

*blinkblinkinnocentblinkblink*

Definition? Me+soulmate = complete. Aiyak! Why 'me' first? So self-centred!

I agree with Master Tiu: There is a soulmate out there for you, but only I dunno how to find....

Pink Cotton said...

WOOT!

hmmmmmmmm *rub chin*

i think .... i think....if its a platonic relation its ok lor...provided that your steady dont mind of cos :)

mistipurple said...

happy zouk-ing!!! fly the night away, shake shake shake!! wait for you here when you get back. but too tired don't worry, just go liuzz ok? hugliuuu.

mistipurple said...

oh, forgot, chesire cat not today. most probably next week monday. keep fingers crossed. *kneels and prays with the wings you gave me*
(different segments of schools get them)

soulmates sometimes change course in life i think. you can have one for like 10yrs and then things change and you no longer click as well. can be female or male. lol.

scary if this happens in a marriage.

dreamie said...

I think you can have more than one soulmate, it is your destiny. God works in many wonderful ways and anything is possible.

kat said...

Soulmates...such a romantic notion...who wouldn't want to believe in it?

I believe I found mine..he's not perfection...our life is not a constant bliss...we are not Siamese twins...

So what makes us soulmates? He completes me...I'm a doer, he's a thinker...I'm impulsive, he's cautious...I'm into details, he looks at the big picture...I understand what makes him tick...he knows where I'm coming from...my thoughts join his seamlessly from my mind to his...

We trust each other totally and fully..perhaps this is what makes us soulmates...daring to open up 100% to each other...risk being hurt...to be vulnerable...no walls...no masks...

plink said...

O.O

kat just took the words right out of my m... keyboard?

angel said...

Dear zeroimpact,...
Haha... Dun say I din call u ohh... straight away I called u just now :P

Yes... please lemme know the answer when you have found it...

**********
Dear plinku,...
Errr... no arr... not becos of any movie... but is becos of what zeroimpact's latest entry... (I think! LOL!)
Have as many soulmates as possible?
angel's answer: Absolutely Right! On The Spot Summore! Great minds think alike, hor? Chewahh..
Ah Tiu quite yeng hor? I mean the way he said it la... :P

Huh??
*confused*
Different segments of schools get them? Get wot, huh?

Haiii.. I'll give the soulmate matter a rest... everybody got different liuliu opinion... but later, maybe i wanna blog abt those opinions :)

zzZZZZzzZZzzzZZzzz....

mistipurple said...

*tuck angeliu into bed* (abit late tucking her but bring blanket cover her incase she already slept)

mistipurple said...

sorry conpused you about chesire cat. it's main local papers but got special segment attached inside, given only to schools.

i quickly sent other comment first to tuck you in. me also sleepy. liuzzZZZ..

King's wife said...

hmm **scratches head**
Dunno how to answer. But it's certainly thought provoking.

_butt said...

ahh.. soulmate.. love this topic. Me and a friend just talked abt it yest! :D

okok, to answer your question, well.. i think it's possible to find another soulmate when you're already attached gehh, but to decide having another soulmate just for the sake of 'but he's/she's soulmate wor..' guess there'll be more soulmates to come, then u'll have a hard time to decide which is your REAL soulmate.. :P

to me, i think.. soulmates are not something destined. I mean, there's more to it than just being a fairytale liked norm itself rite? To put in a practical way, soulmate is one that you're 'pak tao dou lou' with.. if you get wut i mean.. :D

Fantasy "Sticky" Flier said...

dear angeliuliu, its clicking for the REST OF YOUR LIFE eh... :P

mistipurple said...

you functioning at work boh? last nite not enuf sleep leh.
pushing--===>[mug] over cyber to you. mocha kopi!

mistipurple said...

--====> [strawberry cheesecake] hehe.

sotongking said...

I dunno...still searching for it

ducky said...

yes soulmate do exist, but unfortunately do we all find them ?
i dont think so. what we found are just ppl that came into our life and became our soulmate.

See Fei said...

soulmate is like the missing half of the heart... you cant define it. but you noe when you find one. but sometime soulmate is just that ...soulmate and good for nothing else. they cant be your fren, wife, kaki... she or he is just an outlet for your to share and let go watever you have inside your heart. the moment intimacy or relationship comes in, the equation change & that person can no longer be your soulmate.

lorsor or not??

angel said...

Dear mistiliu,...
Thanks for the liuliu warm blanket... slept till kenot wake up! *LOL*
I din see yr first comment when I liuzzzed last nite... but it's ok... I 'got' the blanket :) TQ liu...
Errr... I still conpius abt the chesire cat worrr... nvm lah... when got that time, liu show show la, ok?
*hughugliu*

**********
Dear king's wife,...
I oso scratching my head... that's why I asked... :)

**********
Dear butty,...
Thanks for your thots...
One thing though... if soulmates are not something destined, then wot abt the person you are supposed to pak tao dou lo? U mean that ain't destiny too?
*conpius-ed again*

**********
Dear fantasyflier,...
Clicking for the rest of our lives eh? Click oni arr? :P

**********
Dear mistiliu,...
*LOL* Loved the mocha kopiliu & the strawberry cheesecakeliu! Love it, love it! But I was liuliu zzzzz at work not becos din get enuff zzzzz but becos I went to the doc again today and took some liuzzzz cough medicine, that's why I was liuzzzz at work... :P

**********
Dear sotongking,...
Still searching? Hai mm hai arr??
Add oil, add oil!!

**********
Dear ducky,...
Waaa.. very cheem... become our soulmate and are soulmates are different, u mean?
*konfucious yet again*

**********
Dear feikor,...
I think hor... your definition is the most profound one... and one which I agree except the intimacy part. Why should/would the soulmate relationship change when they become errr... intimate?
*wonders*
Damn this soulmate thing... can make u lose your soul! *LOL*

**********
Thanks for sharing... thank you very much...

moz monster said...

soulmates ... do they even exist? i am one with myself ... at peace, accepting who i am, all my flaws, imperfections and quirks. I am my own soulmate =)

angel said...

Dear moz,...
I donno the answer, whether they exist or not, I donno...
Uh huh... we complete ourselves... and maybe someone to complement us would be great, huh? ;)

vernonia said...

=) like this post. My personal opinion? One can have another soulmate other than you steady partner. I've seen it happened, but the possibility of it lasting is low. Your partner or your soulmate's partner can easily be a green-eyed monster. Although it'd be perfect to have your partner as your soulmate, i still believe soulmates can be in the form of buddies. :D

angel said...

Dear vernonia,...
It's quite sad isn't it if our partner is not our soulmate... Have you found yours? Lemme wish you this... May you find your soulmate who'll also be your best friend & lover... how about that? ;)

Vernonia said...

aw.. The same for you, k? =) or you have found one. hehe

i've found and lost a soulmate. It couldn't last as he is another's partner now. And my presence posed a threat to her. Sad, but having known that it had happened or at least it doesn't just happen in fairy tales lifted me up.

angel said...

Dear vernonia,...
Me? I found & lost more than one... and yes, I know exactly what you mean by the "threat"...

Maybe god IS trying to be funny...

Being own soulmate is a good idea too, huh? :)
