Considering the massive amount of people in the world it is quite possible that they were be multiple people with timers ending at the same moment your timer does.
Lets think of a rock concert there thousands of people. You know you gonna meet your soul mate right there at this concert. But as the timer hits 0. You watch starts beeping as so does a girl next to you but then at the same time 2 more beep a guys watch and another girls watch....so how do you know which are meant to be.

I have encountered an issue with this problem: it kind of breaks causality. There are 3 types of universe in which this "soul-mate clock" could occur, and I will detail each of them.
1: The Predetermined Universe - In this universe, you will always meet your soul mate at the same time, and anything you do will only lead up to that fact. If you try to meet them early, you will fail, as your date of meeting them is predetermined, and takes into account your attempts to try and meet them. In this universe, the database will not help because your time of meeting cannot be changed.
2: The Updating Universe - Your time to reach soulmate can go up or down based on your actions. This is the universe in which the database is most helpful, because it can move your time forward, however because your time to soulmate would constantly be changing, it kind of defies what the post sets out - the pre-anniversary of your soulmeeting would change over time, and so this is probably not the universe described.
3: The "Not My Fault" Universe - Much like the Predetermined Universe, the soulmate clocks in this universe never change - they are set for exactly when the moment will occur. However, rather than this meaning that all attempts to meet your soulmate fail, in this universe, they are effective as usual, but your clock is faster to show this - every action you take simply moves you closer to the point the clock is describing, but rather than an asymptotic approach, it is a linear one - meaning that soul mates meet each other very, very soon. This is the one case in which the database could help and the post accurately describes the situation, but there is an issue (next comment because length)

In universe 3, if you tell everyone who their soul mate is as soon as you figure all the pairings out, then they will all buy plane tickets and meet each other within the next few days. If all of humanity meets up in that time, then all clocks will be set to run down in the next few days. Even assuming it takes people a week to reach their soulmate, that's just over 600,000 seconds, meaning that the database will have ~10,000 different entries for each second, give or take a few thousand based on popularity. If all these people have the same time of soulmate, the system couldn't match them - and therefore they couldn't meet their soulmate at the assigned time, so it wouldn't have been their assigned time after all, because all times are predetermined. As such, the existence of such a database would break causality.
TL;DR: A database won't help - and coming from me, a guy who loves his databases, that's saying something.
