Recently, I wrote an article about soulmates, who I'm not sure that I believe in. I do, however, believe in 'the one.' These sound like the same thing, but I consider them very different. You see, 'soulmate' implies that there is only one person for you in the world, and relies heavily on fate and destiny to get you to him or her
But 'the one' suggests a degree of choice. I consider 'the one' to be whatever person I meet that I decide to spend the rest of my life with. That doesn't necessarily mean he is the only person in the world for me. It just means that I choose to be with him over all those who possibly are better matches.
I know that sounds a little confusing, and they are extremely similar. Basically, I think there is only one soulmate decided for you. But I think there are many "ones" in the world for you, and you just happen to pick one based on your life circumstances and, of course, your heart.
I'm sure this post will receive comments against marriage and about how people aren't meant to be in monogamous relationships. And maybe both of those arguments are true, but I still like and want monogamy and eventual marriage. So yes, I do believing in finding the one to spend the rest of my life with.So my question to you, for all those folks who are married or just know is - how did you know when your S/O was the one?Image Source
