What do you think of the concept of "soulmates"? Anything and everything

That might sound delusional, but I always dreamed of having like one person you can share everything with. Someone that helps and believes in you, but also is not afraid to give you the uncomfortable thruth. Someone who is more than just a romantic partner or a best friend. Like you have this one person who is this anchor in your life. There are many ideas on the topic soulmate or true partner or however you want to call it. And I would like to hear some of your ideas, thus we can talk about them. Just one thing, even if you think what you read is a punch of nonenss - please stay respectful and be polite to one another. Thank you!

God can be your soulmate, he is everything youve told here soo yeah he would be amazing

That's a very interesting topic. It's hard to think of "soulmates" that is not your best friend or loved ones. I do have the following questions about this:

1. Can a soulmate be someone you hate but supports you at the same time?
2. What if there is some connection between you and the other one (e.g. if you get hurt, the other person would feel it too)?
3. Does a "soulmate" need to be a human (e.g. an animal, ghost/soul such as "Beyond: Two souls")

I'd love to see how you think about this.

It may sound kinda delusional, that's true, but I could agree with you that it is really awesome to have such a close person in your life. But other questions about determination came to my mind:

1. What if you lose him or her? Was it like an only chance to be truly happy in relationships (doesn't matter romantic or not).

2. What if you don't meet such a person? It seems that in this case you must feel too lonely and lacking something essential (if you were hoping to meet this someone and relying on you fate)

For me it sums up to some kind of fatalism. There can be different opinions as usual but I pertain to the not fatalistic one: if you believe that there is a person destined for you, you'll not struggle for the other relationships much because "it is not THE ONE you are truly waiting for". And if it's you who decides with whom to be as close as possible, life seems easier, more light and less determined.

For me #Define "soulmate" is a person who you can rely on, day and night. But I think this soulmate-ship doesn't need to last until either one dies. Just as with any friendship actually. I think it is unrealistic to think a friendship lasts until either death. Friends come and go, that's just how it is, and it's not bad.
I think, in accordance with what the others said, one should not be going looking for a soulmate. I think you can come across people, who can become friends, and friends can maybe become soulmates.

1. Can a soulmate be someone you hate but supports you at the same time?
2. What if there is some connection between you and the other one (e.g. if you get hurt, the other person would feel it too)?
3. Does a "soulmate" need to be a human (e.g. an animal, ghost/soul such as "Beyond: Two souls")
1. Yes. I've several times hated my friend (who I consider to be very close to me) for being truthfully honest with me. All they did was holding up a mirror in front of me and confronting me with the uncomfortable truth I didn't want to see.
2. As a human being, I feel empathy. Sometimes so much that it hurts me. It's a belly/heart feeling. I think you seek the answer to: "Is there an actual link between souls". Which I think, no one can prove or disprove
3. I don't know. I think some people love certain objects (Their car), or animals. This however does not always allow relying on said object or animal. I think an animal can comfort you when you're sad, but If you have financial problems for example, I don't think they can actually help you to pay the bills or make a plan of action. So I'd like to stick with soulmates as being sentient human beings.
