A soulmate really isn't about physical appearance. People change as they age, so what someone looks like at 20 won't be what they look like at 40! It's what they are really like inside, the part that will be steady and there for you no matter how long you're together.
Sit down with a notebook and make a list of the qualities that are really important to you. Should he love Japanese food? Should she enjoy mountain biking? Look past that outer shell of the people you meet, and see if inside they are really what you are looking for in a partner. You might be surprised how close your soulmate really is already.
