Relationships can be very enjoyable and boring at the same time. It all depends on how well you know and understand your spouse. Nowadays, different people have different beliefs, philosophies, personalities and tons of other attributes. Finding the right match may take some time. You may be required to go on several dates before you identify an old soul. Old souls are a group of people who don’t really relate with the current world’s trends. They live a life of their own and seem to have come from a past lifetime. They aren’t interested in the normal things that excite most of us nowadays (much more like old folks). If you’re in a relationship with these guys, you need to understand them well just like when dating other normal people. Here are some indicators that your spouse is an old soul.
- Home lovers
Does your partner prefer staying indoors and ordering pizza rather than going to a flamboyant party in the neighborhood? If so, you might just be dating an old soul. Old souls love sticking indoors. Instead of going out every now and then, they’d rather lock themselves indoors watching the notebook. In contrast with most of their peers who might be out partying, these guys love sitting on the porch enjoying the comfort of their loved ones, having a beer, reading or just enjoying the comfort of their lone times.
- They love simplicity
Old souls are very simple. They seem to understand the basic truth that most people don’t: the most valuable things are the little ones that we take for granted. You don’t have to take them for dinner at a classy restaurant or buy a sophisticated birthday present. If they love watching a romantic movie on Sunday evening, taking walks in the afternoon or engaging in a common activity for you both, then your partner is definitely an old soul.
- They value some lone time.
Solitude is one major characteristic of old souls. Every once in a while, they take some time to go in an alienated location where they can think deeply about life. You might have noticed that your partner does some solo jobs such as gardening just to have their own time where they reflect about important aspects of their lives.
- Wisdom and good advises.
Your partner is always showing you some new skills every now and then, throwing some lines from a great philosopher or the religious book. When you’re in a dilemma, they always seem to figure something out. They can closely relate to you and you feel like they’re familiar with everything you’re going through. People always think of him/her as wiser than their age. This is definitely an old soul.
- They’re always different
Old souls are always the black sheep of the family. They view life differently than most of us do. They’re the weirdos of every gang. They will always volunteer to do what the rest of you refused. If your spouse is always seeking to unveil the truth about different political, religious and cultural concepts, then they’re more likely to be old souls.
- They value relationships
Old souls really value connecting with others at a deeper level. These are the people who don’t like playing the cheap games that other people play when dating. It’s hard to be heartbroken by an old soul leave alone being cheated on.
- They are not materialistic
These guys are unattached to monetary possessions or material things. You might have noticed that although your partner works very hard, money is not everything to him/her. Why value some paper, yet it does not amaze you as you would after be having a meaningful chat with the ones you love.
Old souls are exceptionally free and give a lot of freedom. If you love science fiction movies or one of those soap operas, they will let you do your thing. They won’t control or restrict you from being yourself. Rather, they will let you blossom in the comfort of what you like. Similarly, they expect you to understand when they want to have their alone time or do their thing.
- They don’t keep up with trends.
Of course they know what Facebook or Twitter is but rarely use them. They know about the new iPhone six or the latest Samsung galaxy or a sports car, but these things do not excite them. While their age mates are busy looking for extra cash to buy these items, your partner secludes him/ herself to go and read some poetry.
- They’re romantic in their own way
When old souls love you, they love you unconditionally and use their own simple ways to show you this love. They can be romantic and try their best to win you over. They’re always there for you when you need them most. When you need a shoulder to lean on, they’re always listening, giving you an old ear to let off your fears and deepest worries.
- Extreme generosity
Whenever they can, old souls give out with the whole of their hearts. Whether it’s financial aid or your time, old souls are more than willing to share it with those in needs.
- They love spending time with older people
Just as their name suggests, old souls love old things, antiques and definitely being with old people. They relate well with these people since they are mature than their ages. Old people are also full of wisdom and great advice which they share with old souls.
- Dream big.
Your spouse is always telling you how they’ll start a firm, run for senator or outdo some competitor. Surely, this is an old soul.
- A different approach to life/things
Old souls are always thinking of alternative ways to do stuff. They do not conform to what other people think or do. They just have their set principles and philosophies.
