An old soul is simply someone who is mature beyond their years as it relates to what is considered "normal" by society. They find it difficult to relate to people who are the same age as them on the grounds that their understanding and level of awareness is further developed than their counter parts. Being as such, old souls often enjoy solitude and their relationships are very different than so called "normal" people as well. Below we've compiled a list for you to understand this better;
Old souls enjoy peace and tranquility, regardless of the setting. Because of this, their homes are usually very peaceful places and they enjoy spending time their as it represents more than just a home, but a type of personal church and sanctuary to them.
Old souls are not impressed by materialistic things at all. If you are looking to get them a gift, put your heart and mind into the gift rather than your wallet. A meaningful letter from the heart means more than a meaningless costly gift.
Old souls like to keep communication strong to avoid unnecessary drama and make sure both sides are happy and feel free.
Old souls are not one night stand kind of people. They prefer to connect spiritually rather than just physically and can develop an attachment rooted in loyalty, love and friendship easier than others.
Old souls understand that fairness is a two way street and prefer peace over being right. They will always be willing to compromise except in extreme cases.
An old soul understands that creativity is one of the greatest qualities of a human and to give this gift to another individual is a sign of great friendship and love. Being as such, they will always find a way to invest their creative potential in expressing their love and appreciation for you.
Old souls are extremely intuitive and observant. If something is wrong, they will be able to sense it and ask you what is on your mind. Don't try to pretend or hide your feelings, share them and together you can figure out the problem and move on.
Old souls may come across as being pessimistic at times but they prefer to look at things as they are, rather than as most people wish they were, because they realize the only way to make progress is to first recognize the situation for what it truly is and then you can take action to make changes and achieve the vision you want to see.
Old souls love deeply and do enjoy the company of their loves ones but they also value independence and time spent alone. Respect this and never take it personally.
10. Difficult but worth it
It can be difficult to be with an old soul, but the intensity of their love, the depth of their understanding and their ability to think outside the box, will make it all worth it.
