Where do soulmates come from?
After a difficult split ten years ago, I started to look into it. I was interested in linking the different versions of the soulmate ideal across time as a historian of religion and culture with a background in the history of ideas.
In a letter dated 1822, poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge writes, “To be happy in Married Life… you must have a Soul-mate.”
Coleridge believed that a successful marriage required more than just economic and social compatibility. It necessitated a spiritual link.
Plato, the Greek philosopher, authored a treatise several centuries before Coleridge “Symposium” explored the causes for people's desire for a soulmate. According to Plato, Aristophanes, all humans were once united with their other half, but Zeus divided them apart out of fear and jealously. The transcendent sensation of two soulmates reuniting is described by Aristophanes as follows:
“And when one of them meets his other half, the real half of himself… the two are engulfed in awe of love, friendship, and closeness, and neither of them will remain out of the other's sight for even a second.”

Where do most soulmates meet?
Instead, meeting someone through friends is still the most popular way to meet someone in 2018. According to the poll, 39% of people met their relationship through a friend, so it might be time to put yourself out there and have a friend recommend you to their buddy.
What age you will meet your soulmate?
The typical woman discovers her life partner at the age of 25, while males are more likely to find their soulmate at the age of 28, with half of people finding ‘the one' in their twenties, according to the study.
They also discovered that most people waited five months to declare “I love you” for the first time, as well as update their relationship status on Facebook, and six months to be granted their own drawer at their partner's house.
How many soulmates do we have?
You can have multiple soulmates. “You only have one twin flame,” says the narrator. According to the belief, if you meet someone with whom you have a strong connection, there's a good chance they're a member of your larger soul family.
Taurus is the most devoted of the zodiac signs, remaining faithful to the right person till the end. Their ideal soulmate is someone who feels the same way they do about their feelings.

Who invented soulmates?
The idea of finding one's “soul mate” has about as much validity to it as the idea that each of us has a doppelganger (an “evil twin”), and that if we happen to cross paths, a bloody duel will always ensue, because one of us must die.
The concept of a soul mate originates with Aristophanes, a humorous playwright and Plato's contemporary. He narrated a fable about two-headed hermaphroditic giants who were cleft apart by a jealous Zeus and were doomed to seek their other half for the rest of their lives. If you can get over the unromantic image of two-headed giants lumbering around on four legs, I suppose the idea of a one-in-a-million quality in one's alleged soul mate has some romantic appeal.
What is the theory behind soulmates?
The term “soulmate” indicates that there is only one person in the universe who is your match, who completes you – and who you will identify in a flash of lightning.
What if you wasted your time waiting or hoping to be star-struck in your hunt for genuine love? What if the perfect companion you're looking for doesn't exist?
Is this one of the reasons why, according to the Pew Research Center, the number of unmarried Americans has reached an all-time high?
What if, on the other hand, you enter a relationship, even a marriage, expecting the luster and satiation to last, but it doesn't, and it gives way to…regular life, where the usual concerns, doubts, and dissatisfactions of life resurface and linger?
Aziz Ansari, an actor and comedian, recounts a wedding he attended that could have been arranged by Aristophanes himself in his book Modern Romance:
“The vows…were quite profound.” They were complimenting each other in the most extraordinary ways. ‘You are a prism that takes the light of life and transforms it into a rainbow,' and so on…”
The vows were so exultant, high, and transcendent, according to Ansari, that “four different couples split up, purportedly because they didn't feel they had the love conveyed in those vows.”
How do you know if the universe wants you to be with someone?
There will be synchronicity and energetic flow when the universe wants you to be with someone. You'll meet someone who has all of the qualities you're looking for in a companion. Your ideals will be in alignment, your energies will be balanced, and there will be plenty of room for expansion.
