Throughout the evolution of media such as films and literature we have heard of the idea of a soulmate. A soulmate is defined as someone whom you have a deep connection with but not having a dependence on said person. But have you heard of a soulmate in the form of platonic love? We all have different forms of love and not all of us will feel that romantic soulmate love but rather the platonic soulmate love. We can see this love within dynamic duos in films and even in our daily lives with best friends we may have not realized are our platonic soulmates.
There's so many examples of this dynamic in modern day media. Let's take it back to maybe one of the first examples we see in none other than Marlin and Dory from Finding Nemo. They have to be one of the more perfect examples of platonic soulmates because even though Dory may not remember much she does still remember how much they understand each other on that deeper level than a regular friendship. Dory will always find her way back to Marlin which I believe to be one of the more important factors of that dynamic.
Now let's talk about Meredith and Cristina from Grey’s Anatomy…i know the title may be off putting but they are literally each other’s person. They have that dynamic of being able to talk to each other about absolutely ANYTHING and know when they’re upset and just the right thing to say. When Cristina was about to walk down the aisle Meredith was the only one that knew exactly what to say so she was prepared to walk.
Lastly, Robin and Steve from Stranger Thingssss!! They have such a sibling dynamic that truly makes their relationship so special. Their interaction while working at Scoops Ahoy is always funny to watch because they have that love-hate relationship but they’re still about to talk about serious topics such as Robin’s sexuality.
