    1. In my mind, I was wondering how many opportunities for love are missed due to superficial expectations. I understand that everyone to an extent, is shallow (myself included), but in a perfect world, the interior self would be the only important aspect of an individual.
      Thank you for the support!

    1. I’m not sure. I think the idea is very romantic, but there are so many ideas behind the soul mate, and so many different interpretations. Lastly, I think that the fact that the idea of soul mates is debated and questioned and wondered about so often, keeps the trope fresh.
