There are many of us who grew up believing that life would be like a romantic comedy: out of the blue, the universe would force us into a moment where we meet our soulmate as doves fly overhead and music plays. While falling in love isn’t exactly like a movie, there are people who believe that we do have a soulmate out there somewhere in the world. It’s a person who we can spend the rest of our lives with and yes, live happily ever after.
But what does that soulmate or perfect match look like?
