In This Guide:

The naysayers claim that soulmates don't exist. But for those who believe their ideal match is out there somewhere, they are not willing to settle for anything less. Here's what people searching for the right person may be thinking, and what you can say to support them on their journey.

They Might Be Thinking:

  • Finding my spouse seems like it's never going to happen.
  • No one seems to be interested in being honest in a relationship.
  • I wish I could find someone as good as my mom or dad.
  • I just want to find someone who is a good person.
  • I wish I could meet this person in a natural or organic way.
  • Why does this process have to be so difficult?
  • Finding the right person to love is the hardest thing I have ever done.
  • I want to be with someone who treats me with respect.
