While it’s so easy to complain about our love lives and the struggles of the dating world, it’s also fun to think about our potential soulmates.

Many people in the world have become a bit more cynical when it comes to talking about love online. I can understand that, as humans have gone through so much in the last few years. Plus, the digital age has drastically changed how young people date and find love.

However, something that makes people a little more optimistic is the idea of soulmates and the notion that the love of their life is somewhere out there, just waiting to meet them.

If you’ve been on TikTok a lot lately, you may have noticed people talk or post about the “invisible string theory.” Since Taylor Swift released her song about it on her album “Folklore,” the theory has been discussed much more in the media.

So, what is the invisible string theory?

It’s essentially the notion that the universe has tied two soulmates destined to be together by an invisible string, meaning that one day, fate will bring them together.

In Taylor Swift’s famous love song, which has introduced people from younger generations to the theory, she sings, “Isn’t it just so pretty to think all along there was some invisible string tying you to me?”

TikTok users and creators have recently been using that line of Taylor’s song to create content, posting videos of themselves with their partners, displaying how they believe they’ve found ‘the one.’

Although Swifties have been bumping the song since it came out in 2020, the invisible string theory has been around for a long time. Many researchers date the theory back to Chinese mythology and “The Red Thread of Fate,” a folklore legend that believed true loves were connected by an invisible red thread that pulled them together.
