An old soul seeks a partner who celebrates and encourages mutual authenticity. They don't want to have to hide, pretend or change who they are in any way. They are at peace with who they are, and they want a partner who is willing to embrace them.
Old souls have an innate understanding of each other that makes it feel like you've known them your entire life. Many times, you look at old soulmates and think that you've met them before. This is because your souls will have a natural, easy connection; like looking into a mirror.
Deeply empathic people, or empaths, are often seen as old souls. The ability to consider the experiences of others and feel what they feel can grant you a sense of maturity and gravity.
They are romantic.
Old souls have a flair for fun, for passion and adventure, that they'll reveal to those they love.
Old souls are often unique, or “in the spotlight.” Therefore, they are frequently outcasted or at least picked on. People who are less inclined to be conditioned by society and more expressive of who they really are naturally make themselves more vulnerable to judgement and hate.
"A true old soul realizes they can't be the only one. Old souls are looking out for one another, they're trying to find one another, so they're trying to make that connection because they realize there's a connection to be had." This is where you see those instantaneous soul connections that run very deep.
The rarest personality type is the INFJ personality type, known as 'The Counselor'. INFJ is the rarest personality type across the population, occurring in just 2% of the population. It is also the rarest personality type among men. INFJ stands for Introversion, Intuition, Feeling, and Judging.
You can be seen as a loner.
Old souls are after long-lasting, impactful, meaningful relationships in all aspects of life. They'd rather have a few close friends than dozens of acquaintances they hardly know but this can give the impression they're some sort of social outcast.
When you feel a soul tie, it's simply the sense that another soul is in your life for a reason. For example, if your life is very busy yet you meet a new potential friend or potential business partner, the sense that you have a soul tie to this person could inspire you to make room in your life for the relationship.
Soul ties form through close, intimate relationships.
When two people bond in body, mind, and spirit, a soul tie is created. Vows, promises, and commitments can also create soul ties between two people.
Signs of a Soul Connection
You feel like you've known a person for a long time—even if you've just met. You meet them during an important transition in life, like a move or breakup. You both notice a lot of coincidences, like showing up in the same places.
They want authenticity
A truly authentic love is one that makes you feel comfortable with being yourself. An old soul seeks a partner who celebrates and encourages mutual authenticity. They don't want to have to hide, pretend or change who they are in any way.
Research finds that 40-50 percent of people have reunited with an ex to start a new relationship. On-again relationships tend to suffer lower relationship quality and worse functioning than never-broken relationships. People often resume relationships with ex-partners because of lingering feelings.
We look for more meaningful and rewarding relationships
As we mature we become a lot more self-reliant, self-assured, and self-loving and less likely to need a relationship in our lives to feel stable or validated. We want more than just companionship in our relationship; we look for it to be rewarding and meaningful.

In the search for truth, deeper understanding and inner exploration of yourself and the world around you, it is common for the Old Soul to experience a lot of mental fatigue. Double this with acting as a mediator between people and their problems, and you'll end up exhausted at the end of the day.
Are old souls loyal? They are fiercely loyal. Loyalty comes easily to old souls because they've learned that it's loyalty that is the foundation of strong and healthy relationships. They know without it, the other important facets of a relationship (love, trust, stability, etc.)
What is an 'old soul'? They are deep thinkers, introverts, possibly you. The most difficult feeling of living as an old soul is being misunderstood. Of feeling different to a point that you might want to retreat just a little more every day.
