Kate Rose Love Quote

In a YourTango interview, Kate Rose breaks down what these loves are and the purpose behind each of them.

The soulmate is "that safe comfortable love," says Rose. Often this relationship will help you to figure out who you love, not who your family wants you to love.

Though the connection is comfortable, it won't encourage you to grow or step outside of your comfort zone.

Next is karmic love. This is "the challenging one that we end up thinking or hoping is forever but ends up being karmic and helps us learn so much," says Rose. This type of love should teach you about self-worth.

Lastly, there is the twin flame, whose "purpose really is to encourage us to be our better self," says Rose. This is the forever love.

But why is it that we only fall in love three times? Well, according to Rose, it's because we only need those lessons. "There's actually not really any lessons outside of them to learn about love."

Don't worry if you haven't found your twin flame just yet. Rose promises that everyone has a forever third love, but you won't be able to find them until you have learned all the necessary lessons.

If you're in search of your twin flame, Rose says "the most important thing is to really stay rooted in who [you] are and what you actually want."

Rose actually suggests creating a "job description for your partner" to help you really understand what you are looking for and what you need in a relationship.

"Instead of worrying about whether or not the man in front of you, or that you're talking with I'm Bumble, is going to call you back," Rose suggests you stop and ask yourself "if this man was to apply for the job of partner right now, is that a position that he deserves?"

Though it might seem hard to imagine right now, there is a third and final love out there for everyone.

"Is there a healthy love, a reciprocal love, a balanced love out there once [you] learn all the hard lessons?" asks Kate. "Absolutely."
