I had always thought a soul mate was someone you enjoyed being around for long periods of time and had very similar views/outlooks on life and were almost connected in a spiritual way, stronger than a 'normal' way to the rest of the folks in your life. One of my very best friends, that I have known for over half of my life, is what I would consider a soul mate (my definition which is likely not the generally accepted one). Our connection ebbs and flows but remains strong throughout the years. We are quite opposite in some respects so that makes our friendship/deep love unique, to me.
I think some folks believe that they have met their soulmate and, for them, that is wonderful.
Some of the examples of a soulmates 'duties' listed above are not things I would want in a relationship romantic or otherwise.
I wouldn't know if it is fantasy or real because I don't think I know the 'proper' definition well enough.
