As children we were taught that there was one special ‘someone’ out there, just waiting for us to discover one another. Watching movies and listening to tales of Prince Charming, destiny, true love and happily ever afters, we set our standards high, and that’s not a bad thing!
As we move into our adult lives we are then faced with the reality of the world around us. The ‘dating game’ is really that, a game, where sometimes you win and sometimes you lose. Yet many of us still hold onto the hope that our soulmate is out there.
In a Valentine’s Day poll conducted by the Monmouth University Polling Institute, two-thirds of Americans believe in the idea of a ‘soulmate,’ a person that you are destined to meet and be with. The concept of true love is alive and well in the United States!

Interested in discovering your soulmate? Find out what your Zodiac Sign reveals:
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Impulsive, enthusiastic and upbeat, you live your life in fast-forward and you can’t imagine slowing it down for anyone. Your soulmate is someone who shares your zest for life. You are quickly bored and turned off by monotony and routine, often feeling trapped or confined. When you find that ‘special someone’ they will embrace change, putting the effort into keeping your life interested and keeping you on your toes.
Taurus (April 20 – May 21)
Known for being one of the most stable and down-to-earth signs, you like you believe that everything has a place and that you ultimately know what that right place would be. Stubborn and stuck in your ways, there is nothing that irritates you more than someone who tries to change you. You soulmate has a similar outlook on life, which means they just ‘get you’ without the need for any annoying explanations. They fit into your life without changing much, if anything, allowing you to maintain the order and stability that currently keeps you so comfortable.
Gemini (May 22 – June 21)
Indecisive and inconsistent, you likely struggle with sticking to one path in your life as you are easily influenced by all that glitters around you. While there is nothing wrong with dreaming big, you struggle to keep your eyes on the here and now, acknowledging the steps that need to be taken in order to move forward. You seek someone that can command your attention, drawing you away from the distractions and back to your relationship and your life. They open your eyes, helping you to see all the amazing things that you have before you, highlighting the fact that, contrary to the thoughts you often have, the grass isn’t always greener on the other side.
Cancer (June 22 – July 22)
Cancers are the masters of emotion. Highly sensitive, you have a fragile heart and will go to extreme lengths to protect it. This often results in an inability to commit to a relationship and trust your partner early on. When you find the right person, however, they will go to great lengths to show you that they will never hurt or betray you. When you are with them you will feel comfortable and content. They have a way of making you feel safe and protected that no one has before you in your life. Furthermore, they don’t shy away from your emotions. Instead, they embrace them and see them as one of many great qualities that you possess.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
You’re the king/queen of the jungle, and you demand the respect and attention of everyone that you encounter. Often looking down on others in every area of your life, most relationships don’t last as they simply can’t measure up. When you find your soulmate, however, they will stand tall and proud with you, prepared to go head to head when required to prove that you aren’t going to intimidate them or push them around. They are strong and independent. While others may be looking for someone to ‘complete them,’ they know that they are complete already and see you as a perfect compliment to their already amazing life.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
You view the world through a lens of practicality and logic. While others may be content to lead with their heart, you can’t imagine putting your life under the control of something so unpredictable. Instead, your highly analytical nature has set the bar high – let’s face it, you’re a perfectionist. You’re already incredible critical of yourself and all that you do, so you don’t need someone else to come add to that. Instead, your soulmate will show you the true meaning of unconditional love. They will accept and support you throughout all of life’s adventures without judgment, loving you without setting expectations. This will allow you to open your heart to view love in a whole new way.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Holding yourself in high esteem, you have created a life in which you surround yourself with people who look up to, trust and respect you. You are diplomatic and gracious, but only in the event that things are continuing in a fair and positive way. You dislike the idea of confrontation so much that you will go to extreme lengths to avoid it, making it difficult at times to establish a relationship with you (let’s be honest, they aren’t all sunshine and rainbows). When you find your soulmate, they will light up every room that they walk into, radiating positivity, love, and respect for everyone that they encounter. They aren’t made jealous by the people who put you on a pedestal. Instead, they celebrate alongside you, building your pedestal up themselves.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 22)
Life for you is an adventure of extremes. Highly passionate and driven, you refuse to ‘half do’ anything in your life, jumping in with both feet. This includes your relationships, which can be incredibly intimidating. When you find your soulmate the first thing you will notice is their intensity. Prepared to not only face the world through your eyes, they share in many of your views and are more than ready to jump alongside you. They don’t, however, just accept your word as fact. Sometimes your passion can cloud your judgment, and they aren’t afraid to challenge you in those moments, opening your eyes to a new way of viewing a situation while still maintaining the passion and trust that has developed between you.
Sagittarius (November 23 – December 21)
You are a wanderer and adventurer, always on the search for the next opportunity for fun an excitement. You like to push yourself to the extreme, sometimes taking this too far. When you find your soulmate, they balance you out helping to keep you grounded. It is through their logic and common sense that you are able to avoid making big mistakes or taking unnecessary risks. They don’t hold you back from enjoying life, in fact, they love your free-spirited view of the world, they just help to rein it in and control it when it is necessary.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 20)
Responsible and disciplined, the rest of the world sees you as someone is always organized and prepared to deal with anything that life throws your way. The truth, however, is that underneath it all you are self-critical and insecure in your life decisions. Your soulmate can see through the mask that you wear, but they aren’t going to take that intimate knowledge for granted. Each and every day they go out of their way to empower, encourage and support you, helping to lift you to incredible new levels in this life. Together, you are an unstoppable team.
Aquarius (January 21 – February 18)
Many view you as being eccentric and a little ‘off,’ but the truth is that you are highly intellectual. Your soulmate will match you in this area, always ready and willing to engage in a stimulating intellectual conversation one-on-one rather than pushing you into uncomfortable social situations. This is someone who will connect with your ‘geeky’ side, sharing many of the same interests and hobbies. To the outside world your relationship may be confusing, but for the two of you, it all fits like the pieces of one large, elaborate and intellectual puzzle.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
You often find yourself wrapped up in your own mind, your thoughts, actions, and decisions influenced by your compassion, fear, and intuition. While this has empowered you to be an incredibly wise, gentle and sensitive individual, it can also hold you back in life forcing you to settle for less than what you could accomplish. When you meet your soulmate, they will love and accept you for who you are while also pushing you to step outside of your comfort zone and chase down your goals and dreams. They don’t expect you to do so alone. This perfect match for you will take you by the hand prepared to tackle the obstacles between you and your dreams together as a team.
