Out of the various kinds of people out there, I’m one of the skeptical ones. Actually, most of us are. The skeptics are the most puzzled sort. And while some people believe in heaven-sent soul mates and some dismiss the idea by calling it cliché, people like us are always uncertain.

Being with someone who will reciprocate your love and stand by you for the rest of your life is the best dream anyone can have granted.

Finding true love, someone who is a perfect match to your mental and physical self, someone you feel connected to, someone you have a chemistry and a sense of belonging with is something we all think of at times.

I hope you get the picture that these statistics provide and understand the first major hurdle in your search to find your true soul mate. *Continue reading on next page*
