Some people believe that we all have one special person whom we are meant to be with. This one special person isn’t just someone you find attractive or have fun with. It’s someone you have a deep, almost spiritual connection with. It’s your soul mate.

It’s a comforting thought, in a way. It can also be a little scary. If you really have a soul mate, a single person with whom you’re supposed to spend the rest of your life, what happens if you never find that person? Or what if you fall in love and marry someone who isn’t actually your soul mate? What if someone you barely know suddenly decides you are his soul mate?
That’s what happened to Freida Pinto, the beautiful actress who starred in the movie Slumdog Millionaire. Her co-star Dev Patel said that he thought they were soul mates, and they weren’t even dating!

Freida thought Dev was pretty weird for calling her his soul mate when they were just friends and co-workers. But he might have actually been psychic. After playing soul mates in Slumdog Millionaire, the pair started dating, and have been together ever since.

Have you found your soul mate? Do you think that soul mates really exist?

finding your perfectly matched soul mate doesn’t only exist in holywood world. we are fated to meet our other half and live the rest of the life with him.


a friend has told me before if you can’t sleep it is because you are awake in someone’s dreams.


In fact I do believe that oneday I will be with the one with whom I am destined to share my life with. I think its not a difficult thing to achieved , its just a result of a deep , strong and last love relationship.

The soul mate it’s meant someone is understand with you of all everything. Even if you don’t tell him  just to look into eyes  or don’t tell any more but can to be understand with it. Someone  that’s make you laugh , smile and willing to be hear when you want him  know about something. Someone to be beside of you when other hate you. For love it’s not enough with it …I think, the understand to each other that’s important in soul mate life.


Unfortunate! I haven’t found him…
