I didn’t address pre-destination. I think our soulmates are the people who are right for us. Not almost-right. Not good enough. I think anyone can make a relationship work, but I think the difference in a soulmate relationship is that it’s not about “making” it work; it just works because it’s the right connection, which isn’t to say it doesn’t take effort to nurture the relationship. But that’s just my opinion and my experience. It took me a long time to meet the right person for me, but I can tell you that everything shifted into place when I did. It was a feeling like no other. I could have been happy with other people, but it wouldn’t have been the best fit for me.
