You may have heard the phrase, “Oh, he or she is an old soul” when referring to people. Sometimes people will even say this about a young child or baby!
So what exactly does it mean? Do souls really have an age? If so how can you tell?
Old souls have an inner knowing about things without any logical or ready explanation. It’s as if they “know by knowing.”
Most old souls tend to have a philosophical outlook on life. When troubles arise, they view them as challenges or learning opportunities.
While they still react emotionally to difficulties, they are able to see the big picture in such scenarios.
Even when good things happen, they appreciate the blessings but try to take everything in stride.
They see it all as just a part of the journey. If that sounds like you, then it’s likely you’re an old soul.
So, it makes sense that an old soul would express their love for someone differently than most people. Below are 5 ways old souls express love:
1. They find love in the simple things in life
Old souls don’t need or want fancy, expensive gifts from their partner and don’t expect to receive any from them.
A thoughtful note, loving glance or hug…basically anything that’s more emotionally reassuring than flashy, is the way to win their love.
2. They prefer “old fashioned” dating
Old souls like the being taken out on a date and treated well. They prefer dinners or movies to “hangouts,” and “friends with benefits” isn’t in their vocabulary.
That’s not to say they don’t like to date for fun. It’s that they don’t want to waste their time on a relationship that isn’t moving forward.
3. Old souls are loving and affectionate, but also need their space
Old souls are hopeless romantics but realists at the same time.
Reconciling these contradictions may seem confusing at first, but it’s what brings old souls balance at the end of the day. So, don’t worry if they say they just want to spend a quiet night alone.
4. They find intimacy in communication
Knowing someone deeply and growing to understand them even more completely is incredibly sexy to the old soul.
Physical intimacy without mental connection makes them feel empty, and they shy away from anything that feels meaningless.
5. They love truly and completely
For however long you’re in their lives, an old soul will love you deeply, completely and to the very best of their ability. It’s just in their nature.
