Finding Soulmate And Relationship Compatibility
Am I in the “right” relationship? How do I find my soulmate? Are we truly compatible?
Many people show up for dating coaching, life coaching or even marriage counseling with a lot of angst around these unanswered questions. People who are dating can wonder if they’ve found “the one.” Premarital couples sometimes worry whether they’re compatible enough to get married. And even married or long time partnered people can wonder if their relationship issues are due to their being too different.
I’m simply glad that people are asking these kinds of relationship questions. After all, who you choose to marry is going to have a greater impact on the quality of your life and your long term happiness than just about anything else.
And it’s also true that everyone is a mixed bag, with aspects to them that are both delightful and frustrating as all get out. So how do you determine what is a relationship red flag, or sign that you’re fundamentally incompatible? How to you figure out what differences are okay? When do opposites not just attract, but actually make a partnership stronger?
On today’s episode of the Love, Happiness and Success Podcast I’m going to talk through all these questions with you. To do this though, I need to wear three hats.
Relationship Compatibility in Marriage:
First, I’m going to put on my marriage counselor cape hat and talk about the most common culprits that make married couples wonder if they are compatible or not. Listen and learn what (frustrating!) differences might actually be strengths for your relationship, and what differences are harder to overcome. I’ll also give you tips for how to build bridges to the center, and appreciate each other for who you are. Want to see an example of this in action?

Finding Your Soulmate
Next I’m putting on my dating coach wizard hat to talk about the serious business of finding your soul mate. Dating is all about “auditioning” people and getting to know them over time. I’ll share the down low on the biggest mistake I see dating people make, and how it can impair their ability to find a true soul mate. If you are on the dating market, I’ll help you understand what’s important to look for in a potential partner, and what is NOT as important when you’re looking for love. I’m also sharing some practical steps you can take to make sure that you’re finding a good match in terms of both character and chemistry. Check out my recent post: Are You Ready For Love or Not
For Premarital Couples
Lastly, I’m sharing my advice as a premarital counselor. If you’re planning a wedding with some lingering questions on your mind, you’ll want to check out the case example I shared about what it looks like when someone is NOT asking the right questions leading up to marriage. The best time to prevent potential pitfalls is before the wedding. It’s essential to have serious conversations about your personalities, hopes and dreams, and expectations prior to the “I Do’s.” Why? First of all, it’s enormously helpful to get on the same page and identify potential problems before you’re married. But an even bigger reason? Because the one of the most serious red flags for a relationship is not being able to talk through important things respectfully. If you are literally not able to have “Who are we, what do we each want, and how are we going to get on the same page?” conversations together, you might want to slow down.
