I am in a wonderful relationship, with the most wonderful man I have ever met. He is my best friend, confidant and lover. I am the happiest I have ever been in my entire life.
However, I have been having reoccurring dreams that my boyfriend cheats on me, leaves me OR ignores me while I cry and beg for his attention. More specifically, I had a dream last night that he was giving me the silent treatment — while I am sobbing he simply says, very coolly, “You’re not good enough for me.” I always wake up feeling confused and hurt because in the two years that we’ve been together, he has never done anything to betray my trust.
It seems that my dreams are telling me that I am needy and/or insecure, but that is not who I am in real life. I am a confident young woman with a very fulfilling life. I am hoping you can help me decode whatever my subconscious is trying to tell me.– Confused
I had a dream the other night where I was standing in front of a mirror and I felt like I had something in my left eye. So, I started digging around in my eyeball and popped off the casing of my entire eyeball like it was a contact lens or something. I could still see perfectly it just looked like my left eye was completely white. When it came off if looked like an emptied out cow eyeball like I dissected in middle school. It was really dirty inside, so I started cleaning it out with soap and water until the water inside ran clear. Then I panicked for a moment, not knowing how to get the casing back on my eyeball. I took a deep breath, I was kind of grossed out, and I shoved it back in and my eye was back to normal. What does this mean? – One-eyed lady
I am curious about a dream I had last night. Before I share the dream, I should give you the background.
In college, I had a near-affair with a close friend. Unfortunately, the timing and where we were in life was all wrong and we ended up severing all ties in 2003. We got back in touch this past October. He was going through some difficult things at that time, and said that he wasn’t very good at maintaining relationships. It has in fact been very difficult to communicate with him at all on any subject, no matter how impersonal. In December, he informed me that he “couldn’t offer me the kind of closeness [I] wanted.” Note: what I wanted was never discussed. But he said he didn’t want to stop talking altogether. I have not heard from him since, nor do I expect to in the future.
I just woke up from a strange dream and need your analysis. In my dream, a pretty woman picks me up from my office for a dinner date. (I’m not a lesbian in real life, by the way.) She’s dressed like a guy and is seemingly laid-back and quiet, with an intense smile. We are seated in our booth and make small talk. She keeps picking on the waiter by ordering really specific things. Apparently, when our entrees arrive, she is unhappy and excuses herself from the table. I’m still seated and soon I hear loud arguing coming from the dining room. I refuse to turn around because I’m pretty sure my date is yelling at the waiter. I feel people glancing over at me and I’m embarrassed. Soon, she returns, looking disheveled and bruised. I ask if everything’s OK and she smiles at me and says, “Yes, but we have to leave.” So, we leave without paying for or eating our meals. Once we return to my office’s parking lot, she stops in the middle of the road to let me out, without a word. She also glances at the message on my phone from a colleague asking to meet up for drinks later on (not a date, just a friend). I tell her “thank you for the evening” and open her backseat to get my laptop and gym bag out. Before I can get a firm grasp on my bags, I feel the car pulling away; luckily, I’m holding on to them and they slide out of the car as she starts to drive off. Her car doors are still open and she stops to close them. I reach the car before she can and ask why she just pulled off. She barely looks at me and says, “I thought you got everything you needed.” I just walk away looking for my car, feeling angry. What does this mean? — Dating Nightmare
I’ve been dating my boyfriend for a year and three months now and our relationship is great. He’s intelligent, super nice, treats me with respect, makes me laugh, and is generally just the sweetest person ever. But whenever I dream about him, he’s a completely different person! He does things to deliberately hurt me, treats me badly, and is just a total jerk to me in my dreams. Very rarely do I have positive dreams about him. I’ve been having these dreams since near the beginning of our relationship, and it’s really confusing and frustrating to me because I know that he would never act this way in real life, and I’ve never suspected or feared that the dreams would come true. What’s going on? – Not My Dream Man
Three years ago I became pregnant with my son and the father was my then-boyfriend. The day I told him I was pregnant, he hit the road and I didn’t hear from him until my son was three weeks old. He stuck around for a month and then hit the road again, just as quickly as he came back. Since then, the only contact I’ve had with him is via e-mail, until he decided to delete that e-mail address so I could no longer contact him. He is a doctor, not just some deadbeat with no money, so finding him is relatively easy. Over the past two and a half years, he’s pulled some extremely hurtful moves and it goes without saying that I obviously hate him. Well the past few months, I’ve been having tons of dreams about him, where we secretly get back together even though we know it’s wrong. We’re flirty, happy, lovey dovey, having fun, and hanging out with friends like we used to. When I wake up, I feel sick about the idea of ever being romantic or even friendly towards him again. I’m also mad at myself for having these dreams and letting him have any control over me whatsoever, even in my subconscious. Why am I having dreams about him and what do they mean? – Bedbeat
