    I've recently wrote some affirmations for manifesting my desired soul mate like vegan, yogi, artist etc. I've a facebook friend. He was my friend from past one year. We share some similar interest like diet, yoga and all. And moreover he is a resident of my favorite place; which is my country but another state, language and entirely different culture. He's a good artist and I love that; which I always wanted to be but never become. I've been liking and sharing his artistic posts and recently he sent me one of his work. And I'm feeling instant connection. We've never even talked. I've this gut feeling from past 3 days that we're gonna be together. I've never noticed the fact that he's same as my affirmations. It's overwhelming and strange! He's not getting out of my head. I don't even know whether he is single. I feel intense love for him. I don't have the courage to tell I love him...never talked... Don't know him... I've even stopped using fb...what will he think of me... Like I'm a bit weird right. My gut feelings never get wrong until now. Is it possible that we're going to be living together?

    Whenever you have a gut feeling the next step is to move forward cautiously and see whether there's something real there.

    If you see a warning sign in a lobby saying "wet floor" you're not going to slip and fall just because you walk through. Maybe someone intends to mop soon and hasn't gotten to it already. The whole point of the warning is to look where you're going, be cautious, and walk carefully.

    Gut feelings work in a similar way.

    This may just be a sign that he matches your qualifications, and the universe is hinting it's worth getting to know him a bit better. It doesn't mean "he's the one!" but it does suggest he qualifies. It will help if you add "single and looking for a life-partner, mutual attraction, appreciation, and respect" to that list of yours as the primary qualifiers of who is eligible to be with you. Review your list for a few days with those points featured as the most important and see if your gut feeling still says he's worth your time.

    If yes, the next step is to find out whether you match what he's been requesting of the universe, too. All you have to do is respond more openly to his art and ideas. The conversations will naturally take more time and space if he's interested in talking to you, too. With time you'll know him well enough to ask if he's dating anyone (if he doesn't spontaneously tell you first.)

    Don't invent too many fantasies about him. I guarantee a lot of what your emotions are latching onto isn't his character, but a dream you're having. Nobody wants to be compared to an ideal. We humans always fall short when we're put on pedestals, and it's uncomfortable. Expect him to have character flaws. Assume he's probably dating someone and unavailable. Whatever it takes to help you down from the emotional high of this crush enough to interact with him out of curiosity instead of "needing him to be who you hope he is."

    Be cautious. Just because he's attractive to you or you like his art doesn't mean he will offer you the same respect and appreciation in return. Don't let your gut feelings overwrite common sense evidence of his true character and intentions. The "perfect match" for your life partner will naturally come to want to be with you without manipulation or changing who you are to make it happen.

    If it doesn't work out with him then someone even better will come along in time. Since we all live many lives with assorted people, you probably have many strong past life connections on this planet. It's likely you'll meet more of them in the future.

    I'll do as you said... I'm confused and frustrated as my heart is telling the same thing again. You said it right, it's not necessary for him to appreciate and respect me too. Thank you so much for giving me such a clear picture! :)

    When you are talking about soul mates it is not obvious that you'll live together in the future. It might happen, of course. But it's not the natural outcome of this kind of love. The love between soul mates is on a soul level and 'just' love is not enough for a relationship. This love feeds and transforms the soul.
    To answer your question above: yes, it is certainly possible to love someone you've never met or don't know well. Especially through the internet. I always consider the internet as a collective consciousness. It really connects people energetically.
    I don't believe in 'summoning' a soul mate to appear. Those meetings happen regardless anything as soon as the time is right. When you actively make affirmations you'll get what you might ask, but not necessarily your soul mate. They (the soul mates) are not the answer to a wishlist, they are a package full of contradictions, mirrors, and other soul contracts which sometimes don't include you. But they DO transform you. And there IS an enormous amount of love.

    I can't really speak for intense love, but I've definitely felt drawn to or curious about some people right away.

    Yes, I believe it is possible to feel love for someone you don't know well, but it might not be true love just yet
