Finding the right person to spend our lives with can be difficult although sometimes people do get lucky. These are the folks who meet their husband or wife early on in life (perhaps starting out as high school sweethearts), get married and live seemingly happily ever after. Other folks have a trickier time finding someone to settle down with and many of them spend years, sometimes even decades, searching for the perfect soulmate; enduring heartbreak and loss along the way.
There might even be times when we think we've found the right person only to be disappointed. And although that can be tough to bear, we have to accept that some relationships just aren't meant to last.
Finding the perfect soulmate is about so much more than just looks or hobbies. It's about finding someone that we enjoy spending time with and someone who brings out the best in us. The perfect partner is the one who wants us to achieve great things and is there to support us along the way.
To find out which star sign would be the perfect match for them, all our readers need to do is take this quiz. Just answer these basic life questions and we'll reveal the ideal match. It doesn't get much easier than that!
