Fall in love with an old soul, the kind of person who thinks and loves deeply and intensely. Fall in love with the person whose wisdom does not match their physical years, the introspective type whose experiences have weathered their hearts, but left them equipped with the type of knowledge that usually only comes with age. Fall in love with an old soul.
Despite this wisdom that makes them tick, old souls are still filled with a sense of wonder. They appreciate the little things, the tiny moments that happen in our day-to-day experiences. They realize that it’s these little moments that cumulate into bigger and greater things. They know that it’s these tiny instances that make up our lives.
An old soul will remember the little details about you, about your relationship. They’ll remember the favorite part of your favorite movie, even if you haven’t watched it together in some time. Fall in love with the person who will remember your favorite foods and be ready to bring them to you when you’re sick or had a shitty day. Fall in love with the person who knows exactly what it is that will make you laugh, and be the shoulder to cry on when you need to.
After all, old souls tend to be empaths. They can sense how others are feeling easily and intuitively, and in fact will most likely feel along with you. They pick up on emotional cues without trying, and will be able to know exactly what needs to be said, or what doesn’t need to be. You should fall in love with an old soul.
And when you fall in love with an old soul, be prepared for a deep relationship, one that prioritizes passion, compassion and communication. Be ready to share a love with someone so true and raw that you will never be able to compare to any other like it. Know that you will be staying up till 2 AM some nights, sharing your thoughts on the universe and beyond it, conversations that reveal parts of you that you thought you could never share with anyone, but with them they feel safe. With them, these parts of you are welcome and cherished.
Because an old soul realizes that we’ve all been through pain that others will never truly understand. An old soul has enough compassion to know that everyone hurts and has ugliness that they hope no one will ever see, flaws that we like to bury deep so that we keep others around. But after enough times, these parts of us show and when they do, it will make them love you even more. After all, flaws never drove someone away from love. Otherwise, we would all be alone.
So when you’re finding someone to spend your little moments with, when you’re looking for a partner who will support you and love you wholeheartedly and cheer you on, who will empathize with you, find an old soul. When you’re looking for a deep thinker, someone who gets lost in their own minds, who goes down twisting paths of thought and hypothesis, myths and daydreams, look no further than the old soul. Because if you fall in love with an old soul, you are lucky because they know how lucky they are to have you.
