For me, knowing someone is a soul mate is the sense that your connection is without beginning; like you have always known and loved the person. I feel this with Redpepper. It is freeing because it gives the sense that no matter what the shape or expression our connection takes, I truly believe we will always be in each other's lives. I can not ask for anything more than that!
I believe it is possible to have multiple soul mates. I just don't have them simultaneously
