Soul Mate

Every Friday night, I try to post another term of Soap Opera Jargon. Find previous entries on the Soap Opera Jargon page on this site.

Soul mate – Despite the fact they break up on a regular basis, soap couples, especially super couples, say that they are each other’s sole mates. Fans say it about them far more often. For example, “Michelle is Danny’s soul mate.” The Merriam-Webster definition in their online dictionary (linked below) is for people who have matching temperament. I’d go beyond their definition. In soap operas the term is more specific meaning that this couple was fated to be together and are the only true match for each other. You will also seen it spelled soulmate, but according to Webster the correct spelling is two words.
