Do you think soulmates are a thing? I do, but I may have a different take on soulmates than most people. I think we have multiple soulmates, not just one. I believe there are different people we need in our lives that understand us on a level most people don't. So, not every soulmate is a romantic one.

I stumbled on this quote on the Mind Journal a few years back and it's stuck with me since.

"Soul mates? I think they exist. Just not always romantically. I think there are certain people you will meet in your life who you just connect with more than anyone else and you just know it isn’t a typical thing and you understand each other perfectly. And this person won’t always be your “significant other,” I mean it could be your friend or sibling or parent or teacher or the person you’re dating or whoever. It could be just about anyone you’ve ever interacted with."

A YouGov poll asked 15,000 adults if they believe in the idea of soulmates and 60% of us do. Some of us weren't sure and 23% of us don't believe they exist. Women were more likely to believe soulmates were a thing than men.

Are you a "hopeless romantic?" If you identify as one, do you believe in soulmates? According to this poll, 64% of "hopeless romantics" believe their perfect match is somewhere out there. In fact, an old poll done in 2018 found that more than half of us will wait to find our soulmate, while 11% will settle.
