In graduate school, I fell for a girl on the first date. Actually, it didn’t feel like a date at all. It felt like I was reuniting with someone I’d known all my life. This magical feeling of familiarity and trust came over me within seconds. Over coffee we discovered how much we had in common–our outlook on life, our relationships with our families, even our taste in movies. Yet it was more than the sum of those things. There was something else, something I can’t quite put my finger on. By the third or fourth date, there was no denying it. We’d fallen in love. 

And then, after five weeks together, something changed. We went from feeling like soul mates to feeling bored with each other. We broke up. It was mutual, but I couldn’t help but feel confused. What was the point of meeting this girl I thought was “the one”?  Were we ever really in love? Did soul mates even exist, or did we just get caught up in our feelings?
