Date An Old Soul — It’ll Change Your Perspective On Love & Relationships

There’s something incredibly sexy about someone who has a unique and exciting perspective on the world. Old souls find beauty where others see chaos and dating one is probably the best dating experience you’ll ever have. They focus on things that actually matter, they’re able to zone in on your needs, and they never take anything for granted. Here’s why old souls are truly the best souls:

  1. They’d rather cuddle at home than party at the club. Old souls aren’t usually constantly on the go. They like to relax and spend time lounging in their own space. Chilling at home and having a real (and private) conversation with you is way more their style than hitting up every desert festival. That’s not to say they’re boring, just that they appreciate their home comforts — and that includes you.
  2. They Appreciate The Little Things. Old souls know how important the little things are in life and in relationships. They’re more likely to cook their partners a romantic dinner at home than purchase an elaborate cruise for two around the Carribean — which is fine because old souls will surprise you with little things every day as opposed to once in a blue moon.
  3. They Don’t Play Games. Dating rules? Old souls might know about the conventional tips but they definitely don’t use them. They make their own rules and texting you back three days after you reached out isn’t one of them. They don’t believe in wasting their time playing games. If they like someone, they’ll vocalize it naturally and without any hesitation.
  4. They’re Realists with an optimistic streak. Old souls aren’t stupid or naive. They’re fully aware of how hard life is and how difficult it can be to make a relationship work. An old soul won’t pretend to be optimistic and blind to any issues that might arise. However, they’re willing to fight if it’s worth it — they won’t give up on something they really want.
  5. They’re Super Empathetic. A partner who isn’t afraid of you when you’re emotional and expressive is a rare find, but you’ll get that and more in an old soul. They have no trouble with emotions because they’re very emotional creatures themselves. They can sense other people’s feelings. They’re the ones who ask what’s up before you’ve even said two words to them. They’re in tune with their feelings and the feelings of others, which makes them empathetic and quick to help someone when they need help.
  6. They Don’t Judge. Old souls don’t feel the need to question someone else’s life decisions, probably because they’re usually making “out there” decisions themselves. They’re free-spirited and slightly spontaneous. They’re too focused on getting everything they possibly can out of life to judge others. Besides, they know everyone is different and what’s right for one person doesn’t necessarily work for another. As long as you’re not hurting anyone else, they’re happy to let you march to the beat of your own drum.
  7. They Know How Important A real connection Is. Old souls have no problem being alone. In fact, they really enjoy it. If an old soul is paying attention to something or someone, it’s because they’re truly interested. Dating them means you’ll never have to question if they want to be with you. The fact that they’re with you is proof enough.
  8. They Give It To You Straight. Honesty is important for old souls. They don’t ever want to feel like they can’t be upfront to you about their feelings and concerns. That’s the kind of person you want to build a life with. It’s important to have someone who can tell you you’re being dramatic (in a nice way) when you start to overthink dumb stuff. An old soul will happily do that.
  9. They’re incredibly loyal. When an old soul falls in love, they fall hard. Being in a relationship with an old soul means you’ll always have someone on your team. They’ll always have your back and side with you even when they don’t 100 percent agree. Old souls are loyal and they have no problem confronting someone who insults or makes fun of their person.
  10. They’ll Teach You How To Live. Old souls don’t question themselves and they’ll teach you how to stop. An old soul will open your eyes to what it really means to live. Every single day will be an adventure and even if the relationships ends, you won’t regret it. You’ll experience what it’s like to be loved by someone who isn’t afraid to express it. To be honest, every relationship that follows (if it’s not with an old soul) will be a slight disappointment after you experience a love like this.
