do soul-mates exist?

from time to time, more or less we have all heard a lot about soul-mates. about the famous alter-ego. the mirroring of ourselves in the face of someone else. many have tried to find theirs. i do not know whereas you believe in it or consider it to be a myth, a big lie created by the romantics to remind to the broken-hearted that there will always be a potential to find the ultimate lover. personally, i have dreamed of the white-knight, yes, of the fair prince riding a nice horse, a great deal. though growing older i limited my imagination to a guy wearing jeands and riding a dusty car- i don't like riding motorbikes. i finally understood that i live in a city and not in a fairytail i guess. but honestly, i do not think that i might have a lot of chances to find him.
oh, and you what's the worse part of the story? when you kiss the prince, then kiss him again and again, and the sneaky creature becomes a frog after having stolen too many kisses! and the nightmare can be endless... alternative end for the story: after yuo have given many many kisses to that prince without having taken notice of any suspicious changes in his height( you can still kiss him without being forced to kneel or hold him in your hand), colour( no, he has not become a huge fan of green yet), or speech(well, even if there was a change in his speech, if love can be blind, it could also be deaf right?), you live happily ever after. what? not in this alternative! in this story, you realise after some time that you have found the wrong prince! imagine having met a prince in really high spirits and that you were in a desperate need of a prince because of the season(spring and summer can be really tricky indeed!) or i don't know what else, and after some time you realise he is not the prince of south let's say, but the prince of north. what are you doing then? you tell me.
to get a little more serious though, i'll try to expose my more mature approach to this controversial issue(even more controversial than the one considering the existence of gay penguins-ok, i've nearly found the mature one; i think it ir right...here.)
so, how do we consider our soul-mate to be like? should he be someone as beautiful internally as externally as we'd wish him to? is it really possible to find someone that can fully live up to our expectations? hey, don't wait for answers here! if i had them, i would not bother writing this thing, i would be out tracing my precious!
and supposely soul-mates really exist. does every single person has one? what if some people don't? and is it possible for alter-egos to exist? i mean, for more than one soul-mate for each one of us? and are we bound to meet at least one of them during our life? and if yes, how are we going to recognize him? are we destined with our alter-ego for ever once we've found him, or is it possible to break-up? but can we really move on after losing our soul-mate? i will not bother with the potential of three alter-egos existing and only two of them getting together. poor third one!love is made just for two!
so, is it possible to meet our soul-mate? what if he lives far away, in another country? and what if he has another relationship or family? or if he is much older or younger than us and we are not comfortable with that? or if he belongs to the same sex and we are not gay and vice versa? what happens if one of the two dies before they even meet? what if we spend the whole of our lives near each other and never get the chance to see one another? moreover, are soul-mates bound to be lovers? or can they be inlolved in some other kind of relationship? friendship, blood-relation etc? what if our soul-mate is a pet? anorthodox views you think? well, never claimed to be right!
so, honestly, what do you think? should i give up hope and give the frog a chance evn if i know that he won't become a prince? or at least a human-being?
