Was Jerry McGuire right? Do soul mates complete each other? Do soulmates even exist?

As Richard Bach once wrote, "A soulmate is someone who has locks that fit our keys, and keys to fit our locks. When we feel safe enough to open the locks, our truest selves step out and we can be completely and honestly who we are."

If you are reading this, the chances of you believing in the idea of a soulmate is high.

According to a new survey, 73% of people surveyed said they believe in soulmates.

Conducted by OnePoll on behalf of Hily, the survey also revealed 81% of people say compatibility is defined as sharing similar beliefs or interests while 68 percent believe someone is compatible with them if they get along with their family.

“Compatibility helps to create a strong and authentic connection with your partner,” says Marisa T. Cohen, Hily’s relationship researcher, in a statement. “One major component is sharing similar worldviews and beliefs. This, however, doesn’t mean that you and your partner are carbon copies of one another; rather, you share important core values. Differences are fine, and can even enhance a relationship (i.e., by learning from one another and expanding your horizons), provided these differences aren’t central to how you view the world.”

I guess the question now is, can you have more than one soulmate?
