Your soulmate is someone you learn something new about every single day. They are constantly surprising you, they’re always curious about new things and new experiences, and they are always focused on growth. With them, you never feel like you’re settling or slowing down – you only feel like your life is jolting forward at a thrilling speed.
Someone who understands what you need.
Your soulmate is the one you seems to ‘get’ you effortlessly. They know that at your core, you are filled with love and warmth and affection and thoughtfulness, but that sometimes you struggle with the need for security and certainty and reassurance (which are difficult things to maintain when it comes to the unpredictability of love). Your soulmate is the one who can both appreciate all the goodness you have to give while also knowing how to reassure you and assuage your doubts in a way that is healthy and productive for both of you.
Someone who reminds you what truly matters.
Your soulmate is someone who helps to bring you outside of your own head. They love your fun, bright, lively side, but they also know that you can go to deep, dark, insecure places very quickly. And they are the person who can always bring you back, and help you to be yourself, and lead you towards the path of not caring so much about what other people think.
Someone who doesn’t make you feel like you have to earn their love.
Your soulmate is the person who finally gives you the amount of love, care, and priority you deserve. You are so used to taking care of everyone else that you never stop to rest, relax, and take care of yourself. Your soulmate will be the person who never looks at you as someone who will do things for them – and instead looks at you as their number one priority, and someone they want to take care of every day, for the rest of their life.
Someone who makes you truly feel like you’ve met your match.
Your soulmate is someone who makes you finally feel like you’ve met someone on your level – in ways that are both exciting and intimidating. Not only do you feel like they are supportive and encouraging of your dreams; you also feel like they call you out when you need to be called out, and they don’t let you get away with being bossy or arrogant. In all ways, they make you a better, more confident, and simultaneously more humble person.
Someone who loves you for exactly who you are.
Your soulmate is the person who loves you not only for your intelligence and wit and intellect, but also loves you for all of your complexities, all of your anxieties, all of your worries, and all of your struggles. They always bring a much-needed dose of calm and reassurance to your life, and they give you the freedom to spend time truly figuring out who you are.
Someone who’s not intimidated by you.
Your soulmate is someone who’s not intimidated or threatened by your charm and popularity and admiration. Their own sense of confidence, security, and levelheadedness make them an even match for you. They never bore you or stifle you – they constantly fascinate you and intrigue you, all while continuing to give you the space to live your own independent life.
Someone who makes you feel simultaneously safe and challenged.
Your soulmate is the person who constantly supports you, champions you, and cheers for you. They love your determination and passion. But they also challenge you and stand up for themselves; they don’t let you get away with bad behaviors like jealousy or stubbornness, and in this way, they truly feel like a healthy life-long match for you.
Someone who grounds you and lifts you up at the same time.
Your soulmate is the one who loves your infectious sense of positivity, optimism, and joy. They adore your thirst for life and they cheer you on in all things. But they’re also practical, and focused; they bring a sense of realism to your life, they encourage you not to give up on something even if you don’t accomplish it right away (or at all), and they inspire you every single day to be better than you were yesterday.
Someone who has standards, but without trying to change you.
Your soulmate is the person who reminds you that your career isn’t everything. They absolutely love your sense of ambition and they support you in everything that you do. But they also emphasize that there need to be boundaries between work and life – they want you to flourish and chase your dreams, but they also remind you of the importance of family, and relaxation, and taking time for yourself. They somehow encourage you in every aspect of your career while also expecting you to treat your personal life with the same amount of care.
Someone who understands you without you having to explain yourself.
Your soulmate is the person who understands that you have a hard time opening up, and you have a hard time being vulnerable, and they don’t let it scare them away. They work every day to earn your trust and they expect you to earn theirs too. They care about the things you care about and they make you feel safe enough to let your guard down, even if it’s a slow and steady process.
Someone who wants you to want more for yourself.
Your soulmate is the person who will never settle for mediocrity, in a positive way. They look at your potential in a way that no one else ever has – they believe in you so much and they’re not afraid to challenge you and they inspire you to want more for yourself and to believe more in yourself. With them, your life is anything but the ordinary and monotonous path you had expected it to be.
