I think it is somebody that one thinks is meant to be with for life, as if they were destined to find one another, be together, and share the rest of their lives with. I consider my husband to be not only my best friend, but soul mate. You just "get" each other, in every way, have each other's back in every way, and would do anything for each other. My opinion of course.
WHEN she is stooped And frail and old, When bones are weak And blood runs cold- Hold her hand. When he is trembling, And sore distressed, Fraught with fancies And cannot rest- Hold his hand. When you are worried, And oppressed with care And sights of suffering You can hardly bear. HOLD HIS HAND. tha'ts what a soul mate means to me guys and no this is not one of my own
