Have you ever experienced an unexplainable connection with someone?
Maybe you recently met a guy you just clicked with and it feels like you have known each other for years. Or maybe you have a deep connection with your best friend that lives on the other side of the world.
While these soulmate connections are rare, they exist.
I have witnessed them with women that became good friends of mine and family members, I have a strong bond too. But also with a man I ended up in an on-again-off-again relationship for years.
And sometimes they even happen with strangers.
However, today I want to talk about the beautiful soulmate relationship some of us experience with a romantic partner and how to tell the signs.
What is a soulmate connection like?
I believe that we only experience a soulmate connection with that special person.
A true soulmate in its essence feels like you have known the other person your whole life. He feels so familiar to you that you immediately feel comfortable around him.
Even though you barely know him you feel like you can open up, be vulnerable and show up as your authentic self. He understands you and you understand him and you don’t feel the need to put on a persona.
When you have a soulmate connection with someone, it means that you found someone you can be yourself with. You found “The One”.
Do both soulmates feel the connection?
If the guy you are experiencing a special connection with is really your soulmate, then he will feel it too. He will have an instant connection with you and be eager to explore it more as well.
Both of you will feel like you were meant to be together.
And even though you can’t explain why, you just know. But if you really want to know how to recognize a romantic soulmate, then the following list of soulmate connection signs will help.
10 Soulmate connection signs
Of course, there are different ways in which soulmate signs, however, the ones below are what I know to be true for myself.
1. You feel connected to him
The most obvious sign of a soulmate connection is that you feel spiritually, emotionally, and mentally connected to him.
When you have a true connection with someone, you think and sometimes even dream about him all the time.
And oftentimes, that intense connection remains the same even after you break up. That is because soulmates are energetically connected to each other even if they don’t end up in a romantic relationship.
2. You feel like you have known each other forever
One of the most surprising signs of a soulmate connection with someone is that you feel like you have known him (forever).
He instantly feels familiar like an old friend that has been part of your life forever.
He can read your thoughts, your body language, and your mood. And on top of that, his ability to calm you down is like that of your closest friends or mother.
3. You feel comfortable around him
The best thing about a soulmate connection, however, is that you can be completely yourself around him.
When you meet the right guy you don’t need to put on an act in order to seem attractive. You get to show up as yourself and know that he appreciates it.
You feel like you can finally be your true self and are not afraid to be rejected by him.
4. You feel each other’s pain
This point is probably the most exhausting sign of a soulmate connection. And that is that you can feel each other’s pain.
When my ex-boyfriend and I broke up I would feel when he was in pain, even though we had not talked in months. I would feel very sad and depressed for no reason and experience a very sharp pain in my stomach.
I knew that it was our soul tie. A strong spiritual connection to your soulmate where you share his feelings, good and bad.
5. You feel at home when you are with him
This is my favorite soulmate connection sign!
There is a saying that “home is where the heart is”. For a traveler like me that used to mean my favorite travel destination – The USA.
However, once you experience a strong connection with someone, home becomes where he is. You finally feel you found true happiness.
His hugs make you feel safe and his voice calms you down. When you are with him you forget everything around you and just enjoy being present.
6. You feel understood by him
One of the most important signs of a soulmate connection is that you feel understood by him.
He just gets you.
No matter if you are frustrated or excited, he understands your behavior and reacts accordingly. His positive energy encourages you to get out of your comfort zone and be vulnerable with him.
There is nothing you can’t talk about.
7. You feel at peace when you are with him
One of the signs of a soulmate connection you will immediately recognize is the peace he brings.
Contrarily, to the men you may have dated before, being with him does not evoke intense feelings of anxiety or neediness.
When you have a soulmate connection with someone, you will feel a peace that surpasses all understanding. Rather than wondering about his intentions for you, you will feel relaxed knowing he has your best interest at heart.
8. You have similar dreams for your lives
Finding a soulmate does not always mean that he will be in your life forever. Sometimes soulmates are only with us for a season and still leave a positive impact.
However, when you find your true soul mate, he will have similar values and dreams to you.
You will experience synergy when it comes to the things you want to see, experience, and achieve. Which is why he becomes your life partner. It just makes sense to spend the rest of your life together.
9. Your needs and wants match
This sign of a soulmate connection is probably the best indication of a healthy relationship. The two of you have compatible needs and wants.
When you meet a man that is a potential soul partner, you will bond over everything. You will feel like he is a perfect match for your habits and behaviors and so are you for his.
Finding someone that understands and accepts your needs and wants is important in intimate relationships but also the best way to make a soulmate connection last.
10. You help each other heal, grow, and love
Last but not least, this is my favorite sign you found your soulmate.
He helps you heal, grow, and love.
All types of soulmate connections come into our lives for a reason and oftentimes become the catalyst to real transformation.
They teach you life lessons and deep personal development work. Which is a lot of work but helps to unlock the best version of yourself.
Life is not the same again after you meet your soulmate!

What happens when soulmates connect?
The idea of soulmates is not new. I have heard people talk about it in many ways and a lot of relationship experts don’t believe in it at all.
I, on the other hand, see soulmate connections in the traditional sense. Meaning it’s the type of relationship that invokes very strong feelings.
So, a lot of times when soulmates connect, they experience a lot of very good times, but also a lot of very tough times. Soulmate energy draws you together but doesn’t always guarantee a lasting relationship.
I know, because I’ve been there.
I had an undeniable connection with my ex-boyfriend, which made me a better person in many ways. However, that same relationship also hurt very much because we didn’t have the capacity to make it work.

Are soulmates meant to be together?
I don’t think that soulmates are always meant to be together, because I don’t think that there is only one for each person. I think that there are multiple human beings walking this earth that have the potential to be your soulmate.
So, some of us will have soulmates in our lives, in the form of friends, loved ones, and sometimes even as romantic lovers.
But not all of us.
