Finding a partner who understands you like no other is a true blessing. The things that happen when you meet your soulmate are signs that they are the one for you. Everything about the relationship feels right, you feel happy and giddy, and the bond you share is as strong as a diamond. From not being afraid of commitment to feeling that undeniable spark, you truly feel like destiny has brought you two together.

But, there is more to falling in love than just that. Your soulmate is someone who encourages you to live your life to the fullest, supports you in doing the things you want to, shows love and affection, makes time for you, corrects you if you are wrong, and also bickers over the simplest of things. They just keep the spark alive in your relationship. They will be with you always – at your best and at your worst – and accept you as a whole for who you are. They also nudge you to become a better version of yourself. They help you improve, heal, and become the person you aspire to be.

If you want to know what happens when you meet your soulmate, you need to look out for the 11 signs listed below. These signs will help you confirm that you have found your soulmate. Read on to check them out!

11 Things That Happen When You Meet Your Soulmate

1. Everything Comes Naturally

Imagine this. You are in a relationship that feels light. It’s easy to talk to the other person, the silences aren’t awkward, the conversations don’t always have to end up in fights, and everything feels natural like it was meant to be. The relationship doesn’t feel constricting.

The relationship feels more like something you want to contribute to, instead of it feeling like work and full of compromises to make it work. That’s what a relationship with your soulmate feels like. You will notice yourself being you instead of acting like someone your partner might accept.

Netta, a blogger, shares her experience of meeting her soulmate in her blog. She mentioned that she was dumped right before she met her soulmate and never worked to get her soulmate into her life. It all happened organically. She wrote, “He came looking for me. That is how I met my soulmate (i).”

2. You Fight, But You Fight Fair

It’s not always butterflies in a relationship, so fights are bound to happen – small ones, huge ones, ones that end up with either one or both of you crying, or ones that are meant to be playful and end up with equally good compensation. And the fights are not destructive – they are for the improvement of each of your lives as individuals.

Fights are important for a healthy relationship. If you don’t fight, do you even notice each other? But too many fights are not good, either! You are trying to be in a relationship, not control each other’s every movement.

Don’t seek perfection. Rather, embrace the flaws, admire the imperfections and accept each other. That’s the foundation of a stable relationship.

3. You Keep No Secrets From Them

Every person has a side they don’t show anyone. Most people in your life haven’t even seen more than one of your sides. The person who makes you want to show all your sides to them – good, bad, and worst – is the person whom you call a soulmate. They are a part of your comfort zone. Being with them gives you a feeling of being home.

You get a sense of security and wish to tell them everything that you have experienced. This includes your secrets, your wishes, your deepest darkest desires…literally everything. This also means you won’t face that constant fear of acceptance and rejection every time something happens.

4. You Experience True Intimacy

When you meet your soulmate, it’s not just your body that craves them. It is so much more than just physical attraction and romance. You might crave physical touch, but that is not everything. It’s also the emotional, mental, and psychological factors that play a role. It’s the way you speak – easy conversations, playful bickering, simplest exchange of glances, the way they make you smile, their quirkiness, the way they care for your well-being, and any other details about them that make them who they are.

5. Your Outlook Changes

Dopamine, the happy chemical, along with adrenaline and norepinephrine, are actively released when you talk to, think about, or are around your soulmate (1).

You just can’t stop smiling. You become optimistic, and your days of being cynical and pessimistic are left behind. This also means you will be making some stupid decisions in the near future as you can’t see the negatives of a situation anymore. It also means that you get better at solving the problems you are facing now that there’s someone who always has your back. Your productivity, however, is on a swing. You get more productive than you have ever been, but you are also lost in daydreams about your partner for most of it.

6. You Get Addicted To Their Company

Even from the early stages of the relationship, you feel a sense of peace, comfort, and security. Being with them is like finding the perfect match for yourself. It almost feels like you balance each other and get the feeling ‘Oh, you most definitely are made for each other!’ quite a lot.

What you share goes beyond liking someone. You become addicted to their presence when they aren’t around you. You crave for them to be with you at all times, which may surprise most introverts. You find yourself thinking about them when they are around you and even when they aren’t – almost to the extent that it may seem comical to the others.

7. Your Relationships With Others Improve

Oxytocin is a chemical released by the brain that helps in social bonding, among other uses. The chemical is released when you have met your soulmate, a person who makes you extremely happy (2). Thus, when you meet your soulmate, you have found someone who balances you, makes you happy, understands you, and wants you just as much as you want them. They also happen to, directly and indirectly, affect your relationship with others. You become social, approachable, and better at connecting to people. Your bond with the people close to you becomes stronger, and it’s easier to talk to people in general.

8. You Become More Confident

Remember the brain changes that occur and how they make you better at solving problems? It happens because you have your partner supporting you and the fact that they have your back. This gives you confidence in doing the things you have to do and the things you want to do. There’s a spring in your step as you walk the path to your goals, accomplish things, in the way you carry yourself, and in the way you take charge of your life. It almost feels like a superpower to have a soulmate by this time, right?

9. You Feel Vulnerable – Yet Secure

As you are as open and comfortable around your soulmate, you will understand, support, and help each other, not have any secret between the two of you, feel each other’s emotions and pains, have utmost trust, and much more. This may make you feel vulnerable in a way you may not have thought to be possible. Even after, if you still feel like you are ‘home’ when they are around, most definitely, you have found ‘the one.’

Being vulnerable is brave. Relinquishing your fears gives you a chance to understand each other, foster empathy, and connect deeply.

10. You Feel Sparks Flying

‘Sparks’ are the sign that you have found your soulmate. You may feel an immediate, deep, unique, and undeniable connection to that person. Your chemistry with them is unlike with any other person.

What occurs is that when you are attracted to someone physically or emotionally, your brain releases an overwhelming amount of chemicals.  This causes you to feel a spark. Hence, no spark equals the fact that you aren’t as attracted to a person as you would be to your soulmate.

11. You Go Through Ups And Downs

Nothing is just good or bad, and nothing is always positive or negative. Even the world isn’t either black or white. Similarly, even our lives and relations are an abstract art of the shades of gray. The fact that a soulmate brings color into your life is as true as the fact that it is us who forget to look at the colors and focus on making things black and white.

A soulmate is someone who has seen the best and worst of you. They have been a part of your best memories and stayed through your worst. They don’t judge you for being the way you are and expect the same from you.
