Hi Rockchick, I lately I've been experiencing the exact thing you have, I've been having dreams and signs about my possible soul mate too. I wouldn't automatically dismiss your "signs" as meaningless if I were you.
For me, the possibility of my guy being my soul mate started out when I was playing with a Ouija board a few years ago, and me and my friend were asking who we were going to marry and it spelled out his name. Since then, like you, Iíve been getting tons of odd signs and vivid dreams about us being together. So anyways, I wouldn't give up hope if I were you. I guess in this situation, only time will tell.
