Have to agree with this. After all, I want a gender change later in life so I have to be open to suggestion.

Well, I can't exactly turn male to male, so yes.

What kind of girl in her right mind would dump you?
Flattery aside, I think, in one way or another, we always end up with that special someone, even if it isn't sexually or romantically.

A close friend can be just as good if not better than a "lifemate".

Yes, but that's moving the goalposts, and not what was being discussed.

Also, a lifemate must by definition also be a close friend anyway.

I'm just saying it in response to the fact that you replied that you are heterosexual in response to my post which suggests that you see being heterosexual as your justification for thinking that a soulmate means a life mate. They aren't the same necessarily.

My mother's soul mate is a male that she has been close friends to all her life..Her gender difference hasn't changed her friendship one bit.

I wasn't shifting the goal posts at all, just saying that soul mates are just as good even if they aren't an intimate partner.

Different people have different terms. What everyone else here was discussing was a lifemate, as in someone where there is actual love between, not just friendship.
You're right about a very close friend, that can certainly be anyone, but that is not the same as what I've called a lifemate, which is concerned with love, with a relationship.

I'd say I don't need to meet everyone in the world. A majority can be instantly eliminated as a possibility for any number of reasons, and of those that remain, there needs to be common ground in everything from personality to interests to intelligence, not to mention being available, and anything happening being at all practical...

*Sigh* That's why I didn't use the term "lifemate" I used "Soulmate" which has a different cultural meaning.

I understand that - it's just that you brought it into a discussion about a different concept.
