Maybe you have already encountered the saying - love needs no map, for it can find its way blindfolded. A truly romantic statement. However, when you step back into reality does this line hold any truth or justice? Finding your soul mate is 50% destiny and 50% choice. Destiny gives you the opportunity to meet and get to know people from the opposite sex. The other 50% is up to you. This is the crucial part—your choice. And this choice could mean everything. To make a successful match you need a pre-defined set of criteria that describes what you are looking for in a partner. Here are some of noteworthy things you may want to consider when searching for your soul mate.

Look for someone who values growth In the relationship - It is important that you find out about a potential partners values and background. This way you can find out if his values and morals match up with your expectations. One thing you may want to think about is how he values growth in terms of a relationship. If he sees growth as something long-term, then maybe this one is a keeper. Respect for his parents, especially his mom can also give you an idea on how you might be treated by him in the long run. You may want to look for a partner that complements your values rather than searching for someone who shares every single one of your beliefs.

Find someone who understands the important aspects of a relationship - A person who understands that being a true partner involves more than just romance may be a good choice for a mate. You have to take a keen look at whether he understands the double function of a relationship: den of pleasure and laboratory of growth. Den of pleasure is a metaphor of all human needs, sex, companionship, fun, laughter etc. These things keep your soul alive with passion. The laboratory of growth is a more intricate concept. It is an area of you and your partners personal life where your souls are nurtured so they may grow together. This is where inspiring each other enters into the picture. It also represents individual character development that will serve as an oasis of strength and encouragement for each other.
