I was reading this in Barry Long's journal...

Soul mates
 A woman wrote in the agony of separation from a lover. His name was Joe. She met him under extraordinary circumstances and their life stories had much in common. There was immediately great passion between them and they had made beautiful love. But Joe had other things in his life and eventually he went away. He had said he would always love her, that their joy would continue beyond death from this world; they were soul partners.
Barry replied.
No living man's body is your soul mate. But man is your soul-mate. He is indeed in the flesh. But he is not in every body, nor does he have any particular man's body. He was in the flesh within the body of every man you have ever loved. He shone through them all, more or less. For this wonderful, beautiful man of yours is an energetic principle and he comes and goes in the flesh of the different bodies. It is always the same man, the same love, but in different men. He shone very strongly through Joe's body. But note, it was the flesh in the body called Joe, the indescribable feeling of oneness that you loved and recognised, not Joe's body. Your brain thought the body was the flesh   and so it misled you as it misleads everyone on earth.

You, too, are in the flesh: THE WOMAN of every man who has ever loved you. You, too, are the flesh, not the body. And you shine forth to he who can see you, until you or he start to lose the vision by perceiving the body and not the flesh. Then the love—or attraction—appears to fade.
In other words, the truth of love is in the flesh not in the body.
No two bodies can stay together for long. They're always on the move. The flesh is constant in every body, but the body is not. Men and women who perceive with the body fail to see the flesh for long; and so the bodies must move on. Only the constant seeing of the flesh can keep two bodies staying together in love and truth. If one falters, they must part or be parted by distance or familiarity. Two bodies living together without flesh is the sham of love and our civilisation.
You mentioned the similarities in the two bodies' lives: that is a partial reflection of the fact that you were to meet in the flesh—and then pass on. For gone, is Joe. And gone for him are you, in the flesh. Let it be. You are still in the flesh to yourself. . .Feel it? Feel your love? Wait and watch. He will come again in another body. Or you will meet in yours, eventually. But it won't be Joe. It will be your love, your own featureless, energetic man—he who never left you, in the flesh, anyway, but only appeared to, in the body.

... maybe you can make some sense from that.

I think you Want love and you think you are alone because you want ego love (terrestian and human love) but you are always love by god and angel .we are never alone ,never but we want always love by should love you Before expert love by other,it.s the more important i think

If a body can learn to be stable in this time, this shared consensual reality, then great joy for all can result.
Of COURSE love and union, communion is not dependant on bodies.
But mastery in a fixed assebly point is admirable, and to me, desireable. Hmph.
