Compatibility: “A state in which two things are able to exist together without problems or conflict.” Soulmates: “A person ideally suited to another as a close friend or romantic partner.” Two things existing together without conflict lines up with two people being ideally suited for each other. For those who want to fall in love and get married, the goal is finding our soulmate. This seems like an impossible feat because “ideally suited” is an exceptional goal.
When you do find that person, assurance pulses through your veins like an electric shock. You know they’re the one you’ve been searching for. There’s no one else who understands, respects and loves you the way they do. For the first time, you can take down all the barriers you’ve planted to protect yourself from heartache and rejection.
“A soulmate is someone who has locks that fit our keys, and keys to fit our locks. When we feel safe enough to open the locks, our truest selves step out and we can be completely and honestly who we are.” – Richard Bach
I knew on our second date, which sounds premature. The reason you know is the signs. Some signs appear on the first date and some show up later. I’m continuously discovering new reasons why he’s the one. The way I lean my head on his shoulder when we share a hymnal during Mass; how our fingers intertwine when we’re taking walks or riding in the car; the warmth I feel when we spoon; and the way we finish and anticipate each other’s thoughts – proving we’re mind readers.
I’ve always loved to laugh, so the man of my dreams needs to be hilarious. I want us to joke around all the time. I want to be with a goofball, and I’m happy to say he makes me laugh more than anyone else. The fun we have together reassures me that our life will be filled with joy. The surprises will never end, the romance will make me cry and the laughter will leave me breathless. I’ve found the man with the key to unlock my heart. I can’t imagine where I’d be without his jokes, charm, support, attitude, and love.
