The idea of soul mates usually makes me throw up a little bit in my mouth.  I mean one perfect person chosen for you by destiny, fate, God, the angels, or to meet all your needs sounds straight out of a cheesy fairytale.  Until I saw a scene from Grey's Anatomy where Meredith says to Christina (her BFF) that Derek is her husband but she's her soulmate.


Christie and Lara from way back when
I had never considered the notion of a friend being your soulmate but it sounds much more plausible and way less cheesetastic then the knight in shining armor business.  I don't have one best friend right now, but I have in the past.  Someone who you can bare your soul too, someone who will tell you that you do look fat in those pants, someone who will show up to your house with a pint of ice cream and a bottle of wine when you're having a bad day, someone who gets you, someone who makes an effort to spend time with you, who cares how you're doing and vice versa.  It's been a long time since I've had someone like that in my life and I miss it.  I wonder at my age if I'll ever find it again.

My cousin Christie and my friend Lara are soulmates.  They've gone from being super close, to slightly distant, to super close again.  But it doesn't matter.  They are each other's soul mates and always will be.  They've been friends for years and the fact that Lara spent the bulk of this past year living in Australia hasn't affected them.  I admire their relationship and the bond that they have.  I love them both and I'm very close to both of them, but it's different, you can tell that they are different and I hope to never see it change.

I have one, my best friend. Even though I only met her 2 years ago we've known each other for ages.

Great post! You're right a friend can definitely be a soulmate. I have a best friend like that; I just wish she was closer! But you're definitely not too old to find another friend like that too! I'll keep my fingers crossed.
