Soulmate V/S Twin Flame: What’s The Difference?

Admit it, as busy as we keep ourselves, we always find time to entertain the possibility of love. Looking for our soulmate or twin flame is a journey we’re unconsciously always on – and honestly, it’s a pretty rewarding one. But how exactly do we distinguish the difference between a soulmate and a twin flame? Which one helps us grow? And most importantly, which one is long-lasting?

Here, we listed the main differences and similarities between soulmates and twin flames. Keep reading below to see which one is everlasting and which one was sent to help you evolve spiritually.

Twin Flame

In theory, a twin flame is described as one soul split in half. After ascending into higher frequencies, souls often split into two, causing them to end up in two different bodies.

It can feel as if two souls become one in a merging sense in a relationship with your twin flame. The two of you share so many similarities; it feels unreal. Your twin flame reflects who you are, and sometimes that can be a good and bad thing. It can be an extremely gratifying relationship but also a challenging one because they mirror your own issues, forcing you to reach a new level of self-discovery. This connection is intense and usually involves a romantic partner.

Soul Mate

A soulmate is someone cut from the same energetic cloth as you. It can be a romantic connection, family members, and even friends. It’s an instant match and quintessentially a mate for your soul.

Soulmate relationships are not tied down to one single person, and it is possible to have more than one in a lifetime. Meeting a soulmate can happen at any age and time in our life; in fact, as we grow and develop throughout the years, we attract different soulmates for more advanced levels of ourselves. Soulmates offer lessons that help you evolve and move forward.

Both twin flames and soulmates have a lot in common, so it can be hard to distinguish the difference between the two.

However, meeting both will give you a sense of instant familiarity and deep connection. Twin flames and soulmates are both connections you’ve had in past lives that are destined to cross your path in each lifetime.


There are key differences that distinguish the twin flames and soulmates from one another. Twin flames are one soul split into two bodies, and soulmates are simply two extraordinarily linked souls. These relationships are often more stable and long-lasting as opposed to twin flame relationships.

The common misconception is that twin flames are supposed to complete one another, but truthfully they are sent to help us grow into the best version of ourselves for our soulmates.
