Go Super to Listen Go Super!

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?
