Once again, that's due to increased dopamine, in addition to increased norepinephrine levels and decreased serotonin levels. There sure is a lot going on! As a result of those hormonal changes, you might notice a change in some of your daily physical habits, sometimes in drastic ways. Rojas says that you next move into the attachment phase, which is super important for relationship-building.
Thus the wild ride keeps going, and your body keeps changing in all sorts of new ways.

During the attachment stage, your body starts ramping up production of oxytocin, which is also known as the "cuddle hormone," with good reason. And attachment is the cornerstone of infant-parent bonding and necessary in establishing and maintaining social and non-romantic friendships.
Who knew hormones were so powerful? Oxytocin isn't the only hormone at play during the attachment phase, as vasopressin levels also increase during this time, according to psychologist Dr. And of course, vasopressin has impacts and effects that are different from other hormones and chemicals in your body.
So, what exactly does vasopressin do that's unlike everything else? Vasopressin functions in a particular way when you meet your soulmate, too. Rojas added. No wonder soulmates feel so good around each other, even as time goes by. One thing that should be abundantly clear when you finally meet your soulmate is that their actions speak just as loud, if not louder, than their words. Additionally, those actions should be in alignment with eight things you have a right to in a relationship, according to an article in Psychology Today.
5 Differences Between a Soulmate and a Life Partner
Specifically, you are entitled to affection, compassion, respect, consideration, time, interest, intimacy, and generosity. And while those things may look different for different couples, you should never feel like you're being denied these things in a manner that's unfair, especially from your soulmate. For example, your partner should naturally demonstrate that they like you, whether it's physically or verbally, whatever your preferences are. Additionally, your soulmate should innately respect you and your interests, acknowledging them as valid and never violating your boundaries.

Plus you and your soulmate shouldn't have issues expressing yourselves intimately to one another. Finally, your soulmate will always try to make time for you, even if they're super busy. Finding your soulmate, as exhilarating and euphoric as it can feel, is — like anything else complex — only as healthy as you are. To that end, it's important to understand that there's a difference between falling in love and developing emotional dependency. And that in and of itself can be difficult to parse out, especially if you have traumatic experiences in your past.
In order to be ready to meet your soulmate, it's important to make sure you know the difference between love and dependence. That way, you can welcome the experience of healthy, lifelong love , according to Dr. Margaret Paul, when your soulmate comes knocking. Trust is important in any relationship, whether it's a romantic one or not. So when you meet your soulmate and fall in love, not only should they have full confidence that you're trustworthy, but you should also feel the exact same way that they do.
To that end, there's no reason that you should read their private correspondences without their permission, or even feel the need to. That's a red flag that you aren't confident that they're telling you the truth — something true soulmates don't struggle with. Why do people snoop on each other anyway, according to the experts? Mary Lamia penned in an article on Health. And yet, according to a Marist poll, nearly three out of four people believe that they are destined to find the one person out there for them. But bad odds aren't the only reason for abandoning the myth of the soul mate.
The truth is, seeking your soul mate is actually a really good way to find yourself in an unhappy marriage or alone. When you develop an image of what your ideal type or soul mate is, you create a fantasy. Pining for that unattainable ideal becomes an enthrallment of the experience of the intense emotions of being in love, rather than a reality-based interest in the potential partner.
Research shows that people who hold a strong belief in destiny are prone to lose interest in their partner much faster and are likely to give up much more easily when the relationship starts to go through hardship. You lock eyes, the connection is fast and furious and filled with passion and intensity. Your mind then tricks you, omitting the non—soul mate qualities and amplifying the similarities and all the things that are perfect about that person.
This is confirmation bias at play. Confirmation bias occurs when we are motivated by wishful thinking and attached to a certain idea to be true. Instead of seeing reality and facts, we have tunnel vision and only see evidence that supports our initial belief. If you're searching for your soul mate, your brain is going to try its hardest to make you find that person, but once the infatuation phase is over, that idealized person becomes just another normal, flawed human being. For too many people, this realization doesn't set in until after they have had their fairy-tale wedding—making them face the work of getting to know one another, for real this time, all over again.
