The concept of a "soul mate" is destructive

The idea of "soul mate" teaches you that there is just one person for you and they will be perfect in every way. But every person has many people who would make them a great partner, and none of them will ever be perfect. Even the happiest couples have challenges. Waiting for a soul mate is dooming you to overlook potentially great partners, and could possibly leave you waiting forever. Do you agree or disagree?

Agree. The idea of souls mates and unconditional love are destructive and abusive traps.

Yeah I defintiely agree. I used to subscribe to the soul mate idea, but I realized over time how harmful that can be. I just aim for as close to 100% compatability as possible, but it's important to know that 100% is not attainable. And that's okay 😊

I disagree fundamentally. I think people just have askew perspectives of what 'soul mate' or any like-term means. I can safely say there's enough people on this earth at any given time to have every individual have multiple 'soul mates' the likely-hood of you encountering them is determined by your location and the way you interact with the world.

Yes, I just mean it's destructive when people think they only have one soul mate and also that person is going to be perfect. I definitely agree with every person has many potential partners that would be excellent.
