Most people have had their share of failed relationships. Whether it was your high school sweetheart, a fling that fizzled out, or the one that got away, chances are you’ve been there. In searching for love, you meet plenty of potential partners and may think someone is “the one.” And although it may be tricky, there are plenty of ways to tell if your partner is your soulmate.
