I read somewhere that there are some that soul mates are the natural fit. This is the part that enchants me the most...there is the belief that your souls don't die they stay and find each other over and over. I think this can go for any type of relationship. I know my most powerful relationships have been with girl friends, who I know are soul mates. We click from the first time we see each other. Time can pass and we start right where we left off. When one is happy we both are. When one of us is sad the other feels it almost as deeply.
Soul mates teach you great life lessons about yourself, about who you can be and about what you want to be.
