“A gypsy soul isn’t lost and looking. A Gypsy soul is one who loves movement and finding the pulse in nature and flight as a metaphor. One who thinks everything is music. One who knows and holds an inward and therefore outwardly contagious kind of freedom.”
(Victoria Erickson)

If you ever came across a girl with a gypsy soul, she must’ve made some impact on you. She was probably like nobody you met before.

That free-spirited girl was somebody that made you feel comfortable and good about yourself while in her presence, and you would very much like to meet her again.

The things listed below enable you to have a deeper look at all the unusual but yet incredible elements that define a girl with a gypsy soul:

1. Emotions are her guideline

She always follows her heart no matter what.

She thinks too much and feels too much. She is empathetic and very considerate of other people’s needs, but she doesn’t neglect her own.

The bad thing about being extremely emotional is that she can get hurt easily. Everything other people do she takes close to heart.

Her emotions are not tamed. She can get very happy and very sad with the same ease. Fortunately, she is able to let go of negative emotions quickly.

2. She relies on her intuition

She always follows her soul no matter what. She is not afraid of taking chances and living in uncertainty.

She is brave even though she might seem thoughtless at times. She is aware of who she is and decides to depend on her intuition.

3. She is adventurous

She lives life to the fullest with her bags always packed and ready to go.

Routine is not her thing. She loves change, and she is always looking for something new.

She likes diversity which is why she likes meeting new people in new places and listening to their stories. Otherwise, she might get bored easily.

4. She is a bohemian

Her spirit is wild and free. She refuses to be tied down by conventions. She doesn’t let society’s rules dictate what to do.

She resents people constantly telling her how to live her life. She has her own path to follow and rivers to flow in.

5. She is unique

She doesn’t imitate anybody. She is her own person with her own ideas and dreams. She has her own sense of style in every aspect of life.

She is in her own motion picture movie, and she doesn’t allow anybody to tell her how to live her life.

Being accepted or understood by others isn’t so important to her. What is more important is how she feels in her own skin.

6. She is a nature lover

She appreciates and feels the grandness that is nature. All those breathtakingly beautiful places are art at it’s finest.

Outdoor adventures are her thing. She loves discovering new places but she always goes back to the old ones.  

She loves animals. She probably has a pet or is thinking of getting one.

She gets inspired by mountain streams, forests, oceans, rain, snow, and the sun. Whether living in the countryside or the city, she always finds time to spend in nature.

7. She is unpredictable

Because of her heightened emotions, she can go from extremely happy to extremely sad in a matter of minutes.

One minute she is ready to hang out with friends, the other she is canceling her plans. That’s why she is constantly searching for balance in her life.

8. She is self-sufficient

Her ‘alone time’ is very important to her. She enjoys her own company. When she is alone among her four walls, that’s quite OK.

It makes her feel comfortable.

She never relies on other people to make her happy; she creates her own happiness.

9. Art is important to her

When you listen to her speaking about art, you feel like she is exaggerating. But she is really into it, and she understands art.

She might even be an artist herself. She is an artist in her own way, anyway—she paints life with her own colors.

10. Music runs through her veins

Music is her drug. It makes her move in ways you can’t even imagine. She loves all the musical varieties from soulful roots rock, jazz, blues to pop music and Latino beats.

The music genre is not so important as long as it makes her feel and move. She enjoys words, rhythm, dance—everything that defines music. Everything that essentially defines life.

11. Her gypsy soul is filled with fire

She does everything with great passion or she doesn’t do it at all.

She chooses her career, friendships, and relationships based on passion.

Passion is her lifestyle.

12. She has a mouth she can’t control

She simply speaks her mind. She is protective of her beliefs. She has her own ideals, and she is not scared to stand up for them.

No matter what anybody thinks, she has her own opinions and strong viewpoints.

13. She enjoys her freedom

She is free-spirited and doesn’t like anything that burdens her or ties her down. It is irrelevant if it is a relationship or something else—it has to give her sense of freedom.

She runs away from everything that pressures and constrains her.

14. She tends to ask these deep questions

She is out in search of the deeper meaning of things. She is curious. She asks things like:

What’s your life philosophy? Which phase of your life did you like best? What’s your biggest regret?” , “When was the last time you felt really happy to be alive?” etc.

She also sees the deeper meaning behind your words and wants to know what you really meant if you seem like you are hiding something.

15. She has a heart for vintage things

She is an old soul in the new world.

At first glance, you can see that she has successfully mastered her boho style. She combines old with new so skilfully.

She finds old/ new things in second-hand shops, her mom’s closet or has them custom made. She prefers old things to new ones because they have history and meaning.

Sometimes, she finds some old movies, screwball comedies, and other things people nowadays consider outdated.

16. She is a collector of moments

Material things are not important to her. She can live almost anywhere as long as it is clean and decent. She doesn’t like fancy clothes and designer outfits.

She collects moments, not things. She cherishes those special points in time that she experienced with people she loves.

Making memories in new places with people important to her is a priceless possession.

17. She loves unconditionally

No matter what you do or how you behave or if you are currently in a good or bad place. She will never judge.

She accepts you for who you are. Her love is unquestionable and undeniable. Her love is something you can rely on.

18. She is a wanderer

She is in a constant search for herself. She wanders around, trying to figure out what is it that she really wants from life. That doesn’t scare her.

Being lost gives her a sense of direction. She always finds new ways to improve herself and is not afraid to take different paths to lead her to her destination, even though she still doesn’t have a clear picture of where that is.

19. Life doesn’t scare her

She takes everything as it comes. Troubles and heartaches make her stronger.

That doesn’t mean she has no meltdown point and that silent tears don’t roll down her face.

It just means that she welcomes them as a natural part of life. They are bound to happen.  

So, she closes her eyes, holds on tightly, gets through them and accepts them for what they are.

20. She believes that something good is always waiting around the corner

She is what comes to mind when you hear the word ‘optimist’. People usually say that she’s watched too many romantic movies. Not everything is so peachy.

She is always on the lookout for that one little miracle which will change everything for the better. Optimism is food for her soul.

The best way to sum up everything that has been said, and catch the essence of this amazing and unique girl is through this gypsy soul quote by Brooke Hampton:

“I like stormy nights and full moons. I like wolves and wild water. I like to wander and I like adventures. I like unpredictable kisses and conversations full of unexpected truth. I like things that have the soul. They make me feel free.”
