We can have many soul mates but only one soul mate on a level of pure love.
The man you are seeing now has issues to deal with that you cant fix only he can.
Anyone who has trust issues, anger issues and past hurts are not ready to enter a r/ship regardless of what you feel from this man.
Only time will tell if you are meant to be together as this is your experience that you both chose to have with each other before you came here.
By saying he doesn't want to hurt you to his friends is his way of saying I am not ready for another r/ship yet emotionally.
Enjoy what time you spend together without trying to read him too much or too much into the situation as it is and if the two of you are meant to grow together time will show you whether or not you both are meant to be that is how it is in reality I don't tell people this one is your soul mate because I don't know if he is or not but I do not that a person with deep issues of mistrust, anger, past hurt, self insecurities what ever they may be going through emotionally will stop them from having a r/ship that lasts until they seek help and deal with their own personal issues that another person isn't responsible for.
Those who expect another person to fix up their emotional problems find themselves wondering why the other person isn't sticking around waiting for them to change its because they cant handle their issues and are constantly being questioned about their whereabouts, who they are talking to, etc, it all becomes too much for them and we are not responsible for another person mistrust, insecurities, doubts, hurts or anger that they put onto us they are.
I would take a big step back if you chose to and let this man deal with his emotions his way or there is always professional help and counselling available Chris has some very good help on this site about r/ships have a look you may be able to offer him a suggestion from what you read and that's all you can do really some will want to get help for their emotional issues and some wont it is up to them as some do not see they have any faults and will blame others for their emotional issues then wonder why they are alone for the rest of their lives.
Time shows to us what we need to see, feel and hear with a person in reality and it is up to us whether or not we want to continue with this person or not our feelings tell us the truth our gut feelings over what we think we cannot think this person is right for me we need to feel that emotion.
A soul mate r/ship on a soul level of love is when two souls are destined to meet both of their energies are attracted to each other on a soul level for this meeting a soul mate love is one of trust without trust in a r/ship you don't have a r/ship all karmic issues are cleared by both people who meet on a soul level of love in past lives so they come to a new life on this Earth Plane ready to meet their true soul mate of love knowing at first sight and feelings they are meant to be together.
Hope that has helped you to understand a little more of how life in reality is here on this Earth Plane we use our free choice and will in the way we wish to and we are totally responsible for who we choose to bring into our lives as a potential friend, lover, r/ship, marriage.
We have karmic learning lessons in r/ships, we have soul mates on a soul level of love and we have those who chose to be on their own because they are happy that way what ever is meant to be in our destiny will be for us because we have chosen the lessons we need to learn and grow from before we come here to this Earth Plane..
Our lives here are all about learning and growing both physically and Spiritually the two go hand in hand as we are spiritual beings having a human experience here on this Earth plane and we have many lessons to learn while we are here.
