I think this Friday Five is a dud since for some people (like me) there are only two questions that can be answered, and the last three are left blank due to "if you are not". :(

1. Do you believe you can have more than one soulmate in life?
I'm not sure. At this point I'd sure as hell like to think so!

2. Are you with that soulmate now?
No. And I do consider him my soulmate in every sense of the word. Which is why I don't know if I'll be able to handle just being friends if we don't work back together (but its something we both want...)

3. If not, how long did your relationship with your soulmate last?
almost 9yrs


4. Do you still think about your soulmate, if you are not together?
Every day. He's still my best friend

5. IF you're not together, do you think your soulmate still thinks about you?
Bastard had better

I'm just not answering this; it all assumes that I believe in the concept of a soulmate, and I really don't. The very idea smacks very heavily of magic--divine or arcane; could be either one, really--and I'm a pretty strict believer in a mundane world. Oh, sure, I actually wish quite strongly it were otherwise, but if wishes were quarters I'd live in an arcade.
The best I can hope for is a kind of mutual compatibility with someone who doesn't have circumstances that preclude a relationship. But a soulmate implies several things:

A) That there's a soul in the first place
B) That souls can be complimentary
C) That certain souls were built to unite in that way
D) That destiny will bring soulmates together in a way and at a time when both parties are available and willing

I'm sorry, but I just don't buy it, so I can't answer this week's Friday Five. I used to believe in it--or, more to the point, hope it was real--before experience and experimentation taught me that there ain't no magic, there's no such thing as kismet, and soulmates exist only in the movies.

I just want to ask something, if you don't believe in a soul, then to you what makes someone who they are?

Do you believe you can have more than one soulmate in life?
I believe in romantic soulmates and friendship soulmates. I think there can be people in your life that just have to be there.

Are you with that soulmate now? No.

If not, how long did your relationship with your soulmate last?....

Do you still think about your soulmate, if you are not together?....

IF you're not together, do you think your soulmate still thinks about you?....

Do you believe you can have more than one soulmate in life? Yes. Look at how many people fall in love again and remarry after being widowed

Are you with that soulmate now? I am with my soulmate now. He is the only one that I have ever believed to be my soulmate

If not, how long did your relationship with your soulmate last? We've been together for almost 5 years

Do you still think about your soulmate, if you are not together?

IF you're not together, do you think your soulmate still thinks about you?

1. Do you believe you can have more than one soulmate in life?

Not really, and that's where my response ends...

...except to laugh at everyone who's getting all bent out of shape over the questions.

I have to say, that I think the quality of the question sets lately has gone down. I know the mod seems to not care at all what the people have to say, so maybe I'll start writing my own questions (for myself) instead of coming here. Something like that anyway... because I'm really disappointed and they really are not at all as good as the old friday five (that no longer exists)

You've always got the option of suggesting questions to be used, as well.

And as for not seeming to care what people have to say, I do care. I'm also not the only mod that chooses the question sets each week.

I'm sorry that you think the question sets aren't as good as the original friday five. The only suggestion any of us as mods can make is to suggest the questions you'd like to see used here.

1. Do you believe you can have more than one soulmate in life?

Absolutely. It could be a close friend that you have a strong bond with, someone who has experienced many lifetimes with you, or divine helpers that you meet along the way. But I believe soulmates come in many forms and are kindred that you share deep connections with.

2. Are you with that soulmate now?

I am! And I consider to him to be a soulmate in every sense of the word. We've been friends for six years, in a relationship for almost three, but it feels like that I've known him for much longer. Elim is my best friend and I would do anything for him.

3. If not, how long did your relationship with your soulmate last?

Doesn't apply to me.

4. Do you still think about your soulmate, if you are not together?

All the time.

5. If you're not together, do you think your soulmate still thinks about you?

I hope so! I definitely think of him. :)
