... And they all lived happily ever after? Why you don't need the perfect - 'till death do us part' - relationship to find your soulmate, by Rosa Fairfield

I have experienced so many amazing things and can envision myself having many more magical moments.
Yet, I can't really picture myself getting married or having a conventional relationship. Society puts so much emphasis on finding, 'the one' and romance.
Whenever I meet someone new, straight away I am asked if I have a boyfriend.
Sure, romance is wonderful but there are so many other relationships that are just as important: mother, daughter, friend, cousin, mentor... etc.
I believe that soulmates do exist... but they could be anyone, a friend... parent ... mentor... just a random acquaintance.
Someone that comes into your life, even if it is only for a hour, and changes how you think about the world. A person you fully connect with.
The relationship doesn't have to be a romantic one and you can have multiple soulmates. You don't need a long list of shared values or interests and the person doesn't have to be a 'perfect' human being.
I much more prefer this way of thinking.
The concept of soulmates and 'the one', in the romantic sense, puts so much pressure on people.
You jeopardise relationships because you are waiting for a fairytale concept. Then, as the years pass, you start to question your worth, if you haven't found your match.
