This was no way for a true-hearted Maiden to speak of her Soul Mate.
I was, as we say in our cult, able to visionize my Soul Mate.
If he is not the soul mate she thinks him, the attraction will wane.
In a few years I found that my soul mate was no mate at all!
She is as philosophical as a fisherman, as independent as a church pillar, and she's my soul mate!
If this new love is the "soul mate" she thinks, the attraction will be all the stronger and steadier in a year or two from now.
As to the new one, not even you can know for certain whether that other man would pan out the soul mate you now imagine him.
