Ok. Here is why I don't believe in soulmates.

At the end of most love stories, the word "soulmate" is released from the mouths of the hopeless so smoothly. Along with birds chirping and stuff. Pop culture has us to believe that when we find our soulmate, we have struck gold. I must be related to King Midas! But if a soulmate, according to Wikipedia is defined as "someone with whom one has a special, almost spiritual connection" then I would have married several relatives, including the female ones. WTF!?!

I think UrbanDictionary sums up the term soulmate, as most of you use the word:

"A person with whom you have an immediate connection the moment you meet -- a connection so strong that you are drawn to them in a way you have never experienced before. As this connection develops over time, you experience a love so deep, strong and complex, that you begin to doubt that you have ever truly loved anyone prior."

(Excuse me while I throw up in my mouth)

If UD's definition holds true, most of us have found soulmates quite a few times! What happened? I'll tell you whathadhappened: the term doesn't live up to the hype. That's all it is to me, a bunch of hype sold to the masses via dating and wedding sites.

What happens when the soulmate has a bad day at work and cusses you out, drinks too much, or neglects his children? Are you supposed to stay with this mofo, because that's your soulmate right there? I feel for those who are searching for the hype. Good gravy.

So there it is. I don't buy into the soulmate shyt because to me, it's misleading. Hello! That last dude I was with, was a freaking "soulmate" as defined by many of you, and the definitions I've pasted here.
