Do men believe in “soul mates”?

Question by jenny s: Do men believe in “soul mates”?
I know lots of women who believe in finding their soul mate but was wondering if guys thought the same thing, deep down.
If you are a guy and you do believe in a “soul mate” what would make a woman that for you? Lots in common? A good mother to your children?
If you found a women who you believed was your “soul mate” but you were married to someone else would you eventually leave your wife or would you just suck it up and stay with your wife even if you weren’t truly happy?

    Serioulsy? a lot of them, NO. the sensitive ones, yes. People who are AWARE have no need for that kind of thinking, they pick the correct person for them.

    I’d like to think Men OR Women don’t belive in soulmates and eternal love.

    I always cringe when I hear a couple acting lovey dovey and saying they’ll love each other until the end of time. They’re not thinking logically at all.

    This also ties into why I don’t like marriage.

    But anyways, I do not believe in soulmates and most others don’t either. We discussed this in my English class. Most people think there are a variety of individuals who are compatable with us. There are 6 billion people in the world, and there’s not ONE person for everyone.

    There is no such thing as soul mates. Any man or woman that says there is is lying or in serious denial.

    Soul mates….nope ! I believe through friendship you develop a bond but not that there is one person that your soul is attached to

    Nope….because I have heard people say that they are with their “soul mate”…and when things end with that “soul mate”…they are off finding another one….

    My husband used to think I was his soul mate, and made the mistake of telling that to his ex-wife with whom he has 3 children. It was a stupid thing for him to say to her. They had been divorced for over 7 years when I re-connected with him, and it still made her cry.

    After over 9 years together and almost 6 years of marriage, I don’t think he believes in soul mates anymore. Marriages take a lot of compromise and effort, and ours is no exception.

    I think the concept of soul mates is just a delusion to make us feel less alone in the world. I think that if we believe that there is a perfect match for us out there somewhere, it makes us feel special and unique; when the reality is we are just one person in a sea of billions.

    I think that chemistry among two people is real and rare. I also don’t believe in eternal everlasting love. Love, like any kind of emotion, is something that needs to be maintained. Just look around YA and you will notice that people who fall in love take it for granted and end up with hate and bitterness because they didn’t maintain it. Somewhere along the line, when love is lost, it can be found again… Proof that soulmates is a concept, not a reality.

    My wife said “soul mate is some nonsense a married man made up to tell his wife just before he went out to screw his girlfriend” I must agree “soul mate” is a load of crap that would be ridiculous to think there is only one perfect match out there. what would be the odds of running that one person on earth not to mention if you both spoke the same language.

    i’ve found that men tend to believe more in love at first sight, while women believe in soul mates and/or fate. but that’s just from my own experiences.

    well yeah i beleave that you can be with the same person for along time and still feel that love that you had from the start. I found the perfect girl for me it was the first time in my life that i believed in “soul mate” we went to school with each other i was in love with her in 4th grade. i left school in 6th grade but somehow our paths crossed and today im 19 and still love her the same she is great with my daughter (that has a diffrent mom) but still we have always loved each other when i told her that i loved her sence the first time i have seen her i was shocked to hear the same. so yes i would say we are like “soul mates” we have ben with each outher for 3 years now and still dont plan on leaving each other. our love for each other is still as strong as ever. i say that somewhere out there someone is right for you and its just a matter of time befor she/he finds each other

    Yes , I BELIEVE that every one of our souls has a mate. One just for them, and when the two com-bind , that is a force to be recoded with.

    Soul mates are rare in today’s society, But if you find yours then go to it, you must.
