I felt myself beginning to experience the Seven Stages of No Soul Mate Grief. All evidence to the contrary, Julie, I informed anyone who asked about it, that it was simply a question of time and luck before I'd meet my soul mate.
I felt like Nixon telling the nation "I am not a crook," or Michael Jackson saying with a straight face that taking a little boy into bed with you is the most loving thing a grown man can do. Its title: 500 Dates: Dispatches From the Front Lines of the Online Dating Wars.
Was I any different, saying "My soul mate is just around the corner"? As I moved into the Bargaining stage, I attempted to cope with my loss of soul mate hope by making a deal with God. But he says he’d trade all his success away in a minute for immortality, inner peace and limitless wealth.

"Lord, if You allow me to meet my soul mate, I'll become a better person. well done :)I think anyone going through the ardous task of finding a partner can relate to this-although most of us do seriously get discouraged with the process and forget to see the humour in it-so thank you for the wonderful spin on it! I was about to rest my eyes and I thought to myself I will never find my soul mate.
Dear Soul Mate, Forgive me for not using your actual name.
It's not that I'm being impersonal or forgetful; I simply have no idea what it is. Tell you what -- how ‘bout I just refer to you as Julie?
I've always liked that name and I wouldn't be surprised if you ended up having it.
Y'know, it feels strange expressing my deepest personal thoughts to a woman I haven't even seen, but I'm making an exception for you because, after all, we will eventually be together for the rest of our lives.
Plus, just because we haven't been able to locate each other yet, doesn't mean we can't share our feelings, right?
This way, when we finally do meet, we'll be that much farther along in the relationship. I hope you have enjoyed the first six -- I know I have. I'll be honest -- this past year has been a difficult one.
After many years of not being able to find you, the frustration of the endless search started to get to me.
I started to feel as though I would never meet my soul mate, never meet you. It seemed like I was right on track for turning into the male Jewish equivalent of the old spinster with seven cats and a passion only for crocheting sweaters for friends and relatives lucky enough to have found relationships.
