About This Quiz

Unfortunately, not everyone is lucky enough to stumble upon their soulmate in high school, college or at the local bar. Sometimes your soulmate lives in another city, country, or even planet if you believe the universe is like the Star Trek Federation. For other people, time is a bigger issue than distance. 

There are many old souls who walk among us. They long for a time when everyone wasn't always glued to their phones and connected to the internet. They want to go back to a time that was slower-paced and people stopped to enjoy each other's company. These people find modern life exhausting, but get swept up into it because it's the only way to survive. If you feel as though an older way of life is ideal for you, you may find that your soulmate lived during the time you fantasize about.

Have you ever felt out of place? Do you feel like you're haunted by a soulmate from a different time? If you had a time machine, would you use it to seek out true love? Does this sound like you? Then, you were born in the wrong century and this quiz is just what you were looking for! With a few quick questions, you'll find out which century your soulmate lived during!
