What are the 6 signs you've found your platonic soulmate?
Think of a best friend that just gets you and always seems to know what’s bothering you. That person could be a platonic soulmate.
“Platonic soulmates love each other but do not share any sexual intimacy," Spiritual Life Coach Keya Murthy explains.
On the other hand, "Romantic soulmates are in love with each other and also share sexual intimacy.”
Love is not restricted to romantic partners. We all love our family and most of us would say that we love our friends, although that love is different from the romantic idea of love.
“You can be platonically in love," Murthy says. "When you are platonically in love, it is not something you consciously choose to engage in, it simply is and you cannot explain or justify it with rationality and logic.”
Platonic soulmate relationships can take on a few different forms based on the relationship dynamic.
