A term mentioned a lot in American television talk shows and by pop 'psychologists' like Dr Phil. A psuedo metaphysical cliché based on normative assumptions about personal relationships.

It is an elusive and subjective term and any definition would be to apply a generalisation to personal relationships. It could be argued that searching for a 'soulmate' will only lead to frustration because it is questionable that such an entity even exists.
Mary has become depressed because she believes her past relationships failed, as she was unable to locate her supposed soulmate out of the billions of inhabitants of planet Earth.

As a well known song states "It's got to be, perfect and I won't take anything less". Mary follows this statement too closely and is lead to constant disappointment, because she believes life is like a romance novel.

Noun, alternate definition. A word often applied to the elusive love of a person's life; the one who got away - soulmate is what a love-er calls the love-ee when the love-er is still in enough limerence to overlook the fact that the love-ee is really is an asshole/bitch. Blindly overlooking fatal flaws in a person, romanticism at an exponential level. Also used when clinging to the belief that because two people share some odd/romantic common factor they are forever linked. Used when denying fatal flaws.
"After he put an FM converter on my stock AM car radio, I knew he was my soulmate that night back in '82 we were both doing whippets at the same time. We were listening to the radio at DeWeese Parkway and 'Like A Hurricane' came on. It was so intense and beautiful that we were blown away. Then he had to go home to his wife."

See instead Mr./Ms. Right .
I once met my soulmate. She was having dinner with an elf, a leprechaun, and a troll.

Two people that are supposedly perfect for each other and meant to be together forever.

But for people who actually have a brain, the idea of "soul mates" is ridiculous. There are certain people who are right for you at certain times in your life. There isn't ONE person who you are always supposed to be with forever.
I thought my now ex boyfriend and I were soul mates. Then I grew a brain and realized that maybe we were meant to be with each other at that time in our lives, but as time changes so do peoples feelings. And neither of us feel the same way about each other anymore.
