If you want to know how to find a soulmate and fall in love as kindred spirits, you should start by looking for some key personality traits that are essential for soul-connected relationships.
Emotionally mature and responsible men and women demonstrate considerate behavior towards their significant other in relationships. This speaks to their compassion, moral internal compass, and conscience as both people and partners.
While this may seem like a no-brainer, it’s shocking to see how many people endure relationships with people who lack these minimum emotional standards. Being in a relationship with emotionally immature people results in unhealthy or toxic relationships, which can be difficult for some to leave.
So, what personality traits make someone a potential soulmate and are signs that they’re emotionally stable enough to have a long-term, committed relationship?
If you want to know how to find your soulmate, look for kindred spirits with these 7 personality traits that make the most loving and soul-connected partners:
1. They are honest.
They are transparent in all of their interactions and consistently tell the truth.
They wish to be honest, and they don’t lie, try to trick you, or omit or spin information for their own gain.
2. They are accountable.
They take ownership of what they say and do and follow through with promises. They take responsibility for their own emotions and their behavior. And, if they make a mistake, they own it and make amends.
3. They are empathetic.
They respect other people and, most importantly, respect you — enough to be considerate of how they choose their words and how they behave.
They have no intention to hurt, humiliate, or demean you.
4. They are assertive.
This person will state their thoughts, feelings, and opinions and expect the same from you. They will be assertive in their communication style and strive toward a win-win outcome, where you’re both satisfied with the solution.
Revenge is not in their bones. They can ask for what they need in a direct, honest, and respectful way, where everyone’s dignity remains intact.
5. They are rational.
They are reasonable and rational in their interactions, rather than prone to behaving like a petty and petulant child.
They do not allow emotions to govern their behavior, and you feel safe approaching them with concerns.
6. They are supportive.
They want to support you in a healthy way, where both parties take ownership of their lives and emotions but still support one another throughout the ups and downs.
They have no interest in tearing you apart to get what they want. They want you to be emotionally intact and healthy.
7. They are loving.
They want an emotionally safe, healthy, loving relationship based on the fundamentals of mutual respect, decency, and commitment.
They are open to true intimacy.
If you want to know how to find your soulmate, you should start by looking for kindred spirits who share these 7 critical personality traits, which are essential for building healthy and happy relationships.
