Life Partner

Definition - What does Life Partner mean?

A life partner refers to a friend or lover who is a consistently positive presence in one's life. A life partner is there to offer friendship, love, and support. Relationships with them may be platonic or romantic. At the core of the partnership is mutual love, respect, and support.

Kinkly explains Life Partner

A life partner is different from a soul mate. While a life partner can be relied on for one's intellectual, emotional, and even physical needs – potentially for the rest of one's life – a soul mate is only around at crucial points of life. A soul mate is someone who provides the needed push in order for a person to achieve higher levels of awareness and personal growth. They are aligned to one's soul, but only stick around during brief windows of a person's life.

  • Sex is a commitment...Once you're there, you can't go back to holding hands...and when you give yourself both mentally and physically...well, you're completely vulnerable.
