How To Know If Someone Is REALLY Your Soulmate? 21 Signs

Finding your soulmate is probably one of the most extraordinary things to experience in life.

Your soulmate is there to support you on your path in life. You have a deep understanding and connection with your soulmate, and things just feel right. 

But, there will be times when you think someone is your soulmate, and they are actually not.

I am sure you have been caught up in all the new and exciting feelings with someone!

So, how do you know if it is real or not? How can you tell if someone is your soulmate?

Thankfully, there are some incredible signs that someone is your true soulmate, and I want to go through these signs with you today. 

What Actually is a Soulmate?

Before we dive into the signs of someone being your soulmate, let’s remind ourselves of what a soulmate really is. 

A soulmate is someone you have a deep connection and understanding with. You get them, and they get you!

The relationship is defined by respect and equality. You support each other, and they are your biggest cheerleader!

A soulmate is someone who totally accepts you, from your bad habits to your weird hobbies.

You can be yourself with your soulmate, and things just feel right. 

Soulmates differ from twin flames, as soulmates are two distinct souls who have an incredible connection.

Twin flames, on the other hand, are two halves of the same soul. 

Are Soulmates Real?

how can you tell if someone is your soulmate

If we haven’t met our soulmate yet, we may start to doubt the existence of soulmates.

But they are completely real!

Trust me, I have witnessed the power of soulmate connections time and time again. 

The term soulmate may differ from person to person, and that is totally okay.

This is because we all are individuals and need our own specific things from our soulmates.

But, this doesn’t mean soulmates don’t exist.

They just are different for everyone!

Now let's get into the 21 signs that reveal if someone is your soulmate.

How Do You Know If Someone Is Your Soulmate? 

Have you met someone and are wondering, ‘how do I know if he is my soulmate?

If so, let’s look at the 21 biggest signs that this person is in fact your soulmate!

#1. You are totally comfortable around them

A huge sign that you have met your soulmate is if you feel at ease around them.

When we are dating people, we tend to put on a bit of an act. This is totally normal as we want to present our best selves to our partners!

However, a soulmate relationship is a little bit different. You may feel the need to put on an act at first, but once you get to know them, you soon realize that you don’t need to. 

When you have met your soulmate, you feel completely relaxed and comfortable in their presence.

You don’t feel the need to dress up or change yourself when they come round.

You act just like you do by yourself because it feels as if they are a part of you. 

You know they are your soulmate because being around them just feels natural. You know you don’t have to hide anything. 

#2. You can hang out with them for ages

I am sure you have been there. You are dating someone, and you spend a few days with them and them.

You just need alone time. You need to relax by yourself and recharge your energy. 

When someone is your soulmate, you don’t really get this. You can hang out with them for ages, and it doesn’t feel weird or tiring. 

Being with your soulmate feels totally natural, and spending lots of time with them just feels right! 

#3. You feel safe around them

When you are having a bad day and your special person makes the worries disappear, you know they are your soulmate. 

Your soulmate seems to calm you down when you are upset simply by being in your presence.

A hug from them will ease any anxiety you have, and their kind words allow you to see things more clearly. 

Feeling safe around someone is a huge sign that they are your soulmate.

They are able to dispel any fears and concerns you have by just being around you. 

#4. You are best friends

Being best friends with your partner is a really important part of a relationship.

If someone is your soulmate, you enjoy their company on so many different levels.

There is a sexual and romantic connection, but there is a deep friendship, too.

When you have met your soulmate, you get on like best friends. It sometimes feels as if you have known them for years! 

You laugh and joke with them and enjoy experiencing new things together.

You don’t always have to be romantic with each other, you can get on like friends, too.

A true soulmate will always respect you and listen to you. They will want to hear your thoughts and feelings and will do everything they can to understand your point of view. 

Communication is a really important part of a relationship; your soulmate should know this!

They will always respect your emotions and want to find out all the depths of your feelings and personality. 

When someone is your soulmate, you are able to be totally honest with them, as you know they will listen.

You don’t feel as if you have to hold back your emotions and truth. They want all of you!

Do you feel sad if your partner is having a bad day?

If they achieve something at work, do you feel super excited and proud of them?

When you have met your soulmate, you tend to feel their emotions with them. This is because you are deeply connected with them and care about them so much!

#7. You share the same values in life

A soulmate is always someone who shares the same core beliefs and values as yourself.

Of course, you won’t agree on absolutely everything. They might hate Sex and the City, but that won’t stop you from quoting it every day! 

But, you will agree on the things that really matter. You believe in the same things and share the same lifelong goals. 

Oh, and they will totally put up with a Sex and the City marathon with you from time to time!

#8. You have fun with them no matter what you are doing 

If they are your soulmate, they will join you for a Sex and the City marathon, even if they hate it.

This is because they have fun with you, no matter what you are doing. 

A grocery shop will turn into a fun trip out, simply because they are by your side.

A night watching  TV and eating a takeaway feels amazing, just because they are there with you!

Everything is great when your soulmates are around because they make you feel good.

#9. You know their flaws, and they know yours

Knowing the flaws of your Soulmate

A soulmate is someone who totally accepts you for who you are.

You will soon discover their flaws when you have met your soulmate.

This is because they don’t feel the need to hide anything from you. 

This works both ways, too! You are fine showing them your flaws because you know they will accept them. 

#10. You are there for each other

When you have met your soulmate, you know that they will be there for you no matter what.

They accept you when you are down in the dumps and struggling with life, as they just want to be there to support you. 

You are there for them in the same way. You want to hear about it and share their pain when they are going through a tough time. 

#11. You bring out the best in each other

A soulmate is your biggest cheerleader, and they will do everything they can to support you and make sure you achieve your goals. 

If someone is your soulmate, you tend to feel like your best self when you are with them.

They encourage you to go after your dreams, and you are there to encourage them. 

You feel that, when you are together, you can achieve anything you want.

#12. You are constantly thinking about them when you are not together 

If someone is your soulmate, you probably want to be around them all the time.

But of course, you have your own lives and commitments!

When you are apart from your soulmate, you will constantly be thinking about them.

Not in an overly obsessive way, but they will always be there in your mind. 

You will wonder how they are feeling and what they are doing and will be looking forward to being with them again.

#13. You feel secure in the relationship

Of course, you might get the occasional feeling of worry or jealousy, but these emotions will be very fleeting. 

When you have met your soulmate, you will feel totally secure in the relationship.

You will not doubt their feelings for you because you can feel them too! You simply know that you can trust your partner. 

#14. You work together 

No relationships are total without issues, not even soulmate relationships.

However, if you have met your soulmate, issues are something to work through together.

You know that any issues will not end the relationship, as your partner is there for you and always will be. 

When you and your soulmate face problems in the relationship, you work together, not against each other.

You view the issue as something you are facing with them, not alone. 

#15. You complete each other 

Okay, I don’t mean that a part of you was missing before you met them. But, your soulmate will kind of complete you. 

Perhaps you and your soulmate have pretty different personalities.

They might be more outgoing, whereas you prefer to stay at home. 

However, they will bring out different parts of your personality that you never really knew existed!

The outgoing streak that you never thought you had will come out, and you will enjoy exploring this side of you. 

Similarly, you will help them discover different things about their personality.

Perhaps they have never really expressed their creative side, and you love to paint.

Your creativity will allow them to explore their own, and together you will feel much more complete. 

#16. Their happiness is as important as your own

How do you know if a person is your soulmate?

When you have met your soulmate, you will care just as much about their happiness as your own.

Sometimes, you will even put their happiness above your own if they are in need!

You will do everything possible to ensure your partner is feeling safe, secure, and happy.

This is because you have huge empathy for them, and feel their emotions alongside them. 

#17. You have compatible star signs

When it comes to soulmates, it is super interesting to learn about the different star signs and what are compatible!

I have found that soulmates tend to have compatible zodiac signs. 

Perhaps you are a Gemini, and your partner is a Leo.

As these are compatible star signs, it is a sign that this person is your soulmate.  

Of course, your soulmate might be an incompatible sign, so don’t base your relationships solely on astrology.

However, I believe that the zodiac can give us an idea about who might be our soulmate.

#18. You let your guard down

When you have met your soulmate, you won’t think twice about letting your guard down and being totally honest with them. 

You are comfortable with your soulmate and know that they accept you totally.

This means that you are able to show your true self to them, all the good and all the bad!

You will not worry about your soulmate getting scared or put off by who you truly are.

You know that they support every aspect of your personality.

#19. Everything feels easy

I always know when my friends have met their soulmates because they will tell me that things just ‘feel easy.’ 

Of course, there will be the odd issue in the relationship, but when you have met your soulmate, things just seem to fall into place. 

It is as if they have been there your whole life. There is no huge effort in making the relationship work because it just… works. 

#20. You want to make little sacrifices for them

Perhaps you had plans with your partner to go out with your friends for drinks, but they have had a rough day at work and just want to chill. 

You were looking forward to going out, but if they are your soulmate, you don’t really care about making small sacrifices for them.

You are totally okay with not going out, staying in, and just relaxing with them. 

You know that they need you for support, and this is more important right now than you going out for drinks and having fun. 

Of course, never make huge sacrifices for the person you are with.

Oh, and if they are constantly asking you to cancel plans with your friends… they won’t be your soulmate. 

#21. You just know 

Finally, one of the biggest signs that this person is your soulmate is if you just know. 

You have met them at the right time and enjoy life together.

Things feel easy, and you are excited about what the future holds for both of you.

A soulmate is someone who fits you like your favorite jumper. You know, the one that you always get out on cold nights when you are feeling down and out. 

They feel as if they have been there all your life, and you know they will be there for you for the rest of your life, too. 

When someone is your soulmate… you just know.
