How Do You Know You Have Met Your Soulmate?

How do you know you have met your soulmate? It’s commonplace to be a bit unsure when you meet a romantic soulmate.

The feeling is real. And it is intense.  But because it comes on so fast, people often wonder if it’s attraction or infatuation. It defies reason that one cares so deeply, or feels such a strong connection, to someone so quickly.

Since it’s so hard to believe your own feelings are real, it’s easy to question if the other person feels the same thing. So how do you really know if  you’ve met a soulmate or if it is something else entirely?


When soulmates meet, it’s a mystical, cosmic experience. There’s an instant spark, a flare, an immediate attraction between you. You each feel the intensity but probably in different ways. There are also soulmate signs that will help you identify a true soul partner.

You may feel they’re the only person in the room while everyone else around you seems to melt away into a void. The energy in front of you is the only thing that matters at that time. Your spiritual counterpart may instead focus on feeling they’ve known you for a long, long time, even though your meeting was just that day.

Some people may like to call this love at first sight. But esoterically it’s a much deeper experience. It’s the soul recognition between you.

You’re reaching a checkpoint in your soul blueprint and saying to each other Oh there you are, I have been looking for you. Let’s get this show on the road!

It’s a feeling of coming home. You feel you know this person already or that you have met before. And you have, just not in this lifetime.


There is a recognition on the soul level when soulmates encounter one another for the first time. Although you may not fully be aware at the time this can be indicative or sharing past lives.

And this time together, before you’re born, is when you work through your soulmate contract with each other. Your ego will not be aware of these things necessarily upon meeting. All you may be conscious of in that moment is the intense attraction and pull you feel to this person.

You probably share many lifetimes together. There will be a feeling of comfort and contentment in being in the presence of this energy that feels so familiar to you. You can’t quite put your finger on it, but there’s just something about them that resonates with your soul.

Of course you have no idea of the karmic life lessons about to manifest in your life as a result of meeting this person. Things between you start out so well, yet chances are it will become a challenging karmic relationship in the future.


The beginning of a soulmate relationship will be exhilarating and joyful. You have so much in common, and not just things like both your grandmother’s first names. The commonalities that are much more unique.

Whatever it is, it will be something special. And if it’s not readily apparent, as you get to know each other, more similarities will reveal themselves. You have long talks and spend hours on the phone going over all the connected pieces between you.

You will spend countless hours together. You’ll think each others thoughts and complete each other’s sentences. And you will both truly believe you’ve reached a state of perpetual bliss as you turn all your focus upon the one you perceive is The One for you.

There will be mind-blowing sex and you just can’t get enough of each other. You talk about the future, making long range plans, even though you consciously know it’s too early on in the relationship. You both know better. But you throw caution to wind, because in your souls, you know fate has brought you together.

You feel you’re destined to be united and nothing will tear you apart. You might even neglect a lot of other responsibilities and people in your life because the only thing that matters to you is the soulmate relationship and your connection.

Non-romantic soulmates

Now if it’s not a romantic soulmate you may be wondering about a soulmate relationship with a friend, family member, co-worker or pet. These connections tend to develop over a longer period, but not always.

When friends meet and form a strong bond it’s usually a kindred spirit connection. You share a lot of similarities in terms of background, belief structure, likes, dislikes and life in general.

Over time though, as that friendship deepens and you become more closely connected, it evolves into a soulmate friendship. And you may be able to feel each other and communicate telepathically. Soulmate friendships have a bond as deep as family bonds. This is because they are a part of your soul tribe or soul family.

We also invited you to take our Soulmate Connection Test to see if you’re with your soulmate.

  1. I thought I came across a soul mate though it turned out to be a narcissist who know exactly how to give those signs of a soul mate.

  2. We both knew something was different right away, didn’t know it was a soulmate connection but we knew it was something substantial. We have had our ups and downs, but we are still standing strong.

  3. My first real love reconnected with me after 47 yrs to say hi .. I was Blown away this man who I had loved when I was very young but have always thought of him right through my life even when I was married.. See my husband had passed away only two years when he When my first love contacted me through messenger .. Then that was the beginning of us fully contacting each other connecting.. we started off as friends then went to what would’ve been like if we had of been together now to this amazing connection which drew are so close together but he lived in another country and he was married this went on for 18 months then it had to stop I know he is my soulmate

  4. Recently I knew one guy in whats up.
    Actually this guy keeps on sending me sms before as I have posted my no.on a website for part time jobs…But I never replied to his messages..

    One time,I was bored,it happened last August..He sent me sms on what’up…
    I don’t know what happened but I replied..Then we started chatting on what’s up…

    I am in the depths oh my complicated relationship ( now I”m officially S.I.N.G.L.E) that time but I don’t know why I bothered to share it with him,to someone I didn’t meet yet (not a friend rather)..Someone I don’t know yet..He asked me to meet him but I’m scared..Did not meet him up that time…

    But he still replied to my dramatic and annoying messages..He always checking me…But oftentimes he’s so harsh on his comments..But then,I don’t mind..I still send my reply to him,share things from time to time..

    We always fought..I mean because he’a acting so harsh and wild at times…
    He will sometimes push me away like telling me” I’m bored with you,don’t like to hear your drama,I’m not your time and You’re not my type..Don’t waste your time in knowing me..blah blah blah…But still I’m sending him messages and he still replied….

    Until one time,I reached to that point that I felt being rejected by Him..I mean,he’s too harsh for me…I decided not to send him a message for 2 days…

    Then he suddenly message me after 2 days ” you’ve been quiet”…

    I don’t know,I was happy that time and I replied ” You miss me?” on and so forth…

    We met in person yesterday,27th September 2013…It’s really weird as when we first said our “hi and hellos” in the car,I’m too comfortable..I mean,I never felt shy or awkward..As if I met this person for so long…

    We have talks…We can discuss anything under the sun yesterday..We were laughing..Throwing something on each other..We played truth or dare…Then I did something foolish which keeps me thinking until today..

    I lose the game of cards,as a Dare..He kissed me..

    OMG..My first time to kiss a guy..1st meeting, not my boyfriend or whomsoever.,..

    And I just don’t understand why I can’t forget that 1st met that we had..That ” kiss”..Though it’s not my first kiss at all…

    Please advise…

    Thank you…
