“He was cheating on me in my dream!” To dream about cheating indicates a fear of betrayal, either that someone else will betray you or you will betray someone else. This is often a personal betrayal, even if your dream was about money or property. If you dream about adultery, this often indicates a stressful relationship with your spouse, but it is not necessarily precognitive of actual adultery.
It could also reflect a simple miscommunication that has made you feel vulnerable or betrayed. A dream about betrayal is often an indication that something is happening in a relationship that you do not recognize – either someone is treating you badly and you do not realize it, or you are not treating someone else as you ought to.
Most people can remember a dream when they woke up in a pile of sweat furious at the person lying next to them. Unbeknown to your partner is you just had a dream that they were in the arms of another woman or man. If one spouse accuses the other of cheating because of a dream, it can cause a lot of problems in a relationship.
Dreaming about cheating or being cheated on is one of the most commonly reported, and most disturbing, dreams for people who are in relationships. These dreams can be so real and vivid that you can have all the feelings and emotions that you would have if your partner really did cheat. A number of people believe these dreams to be prophecies that their boyfriend, girlfriend or spouse is cheating. Most of the time these dreams are usually related to an insecurity or fear. However, there are instances where these dreams can represent an omen of truth.

Foreshadowing Dreams about Cheating
When I was a child I had a dream that foreshadowed my parents getting a divorce. I was 10 years old when I had a dream that my mom was cheating on my dad. I woke up from this dream and immediately thought I had a nightmare. This dream was so vivid and clear that I couldn’t get it out of my head. As it turns out, 3 weeks later in real life, my dad found out that my mom was having an affair with a friend of hers.
Thinking back about this event in my life, I am not surprised that I had this dream. Although, my conscious mind did not sense any problem with my parent’s relationship as a child, my subconscious mind was reading all of the signals that my brain wasn’t. It was my subconscious mind that compiled all the hidden signs and portrayed them in a dream that revolved about my mom’s unhappiness in the marriage.
Whenever a dream about a cheating spouse, boyfriend, or girlfriend turns out to be real, it doesn’t necessarily mean that you are physic. It usually mean that your unconscious mind is better at reading the subtle signs that your conscious mind has either overlooked or simply blocked out in order to avoid hurt.
A great example of an unconscious mind picking up signals is a wife not noticing that her husband is staying out a little longer after work each day. Her husband may have also started improving his wardrobe and she might have thought nothing of it. While these changes may not be picked up by the conscious mind of signs of cheating, the unconscious mind may be putting each piece of the puzzle together to come up with the conclusion in a dream.
Cheating Dreams Representing Insecurities
In most cases, dreams about cheating represent some aspect of yourself. You could have issues with trust that are causing you to feel that your partner is constantly cheating on you. Most people who have these dreams have deep insecurity and anxiety about themselves that are caused to reflect in a dream.
Dreaming that your partner is doing the cheating on you usually represents some kind of anxiety or worry that you have about your own personal feelings towards yourself. You could have anxiety over your own physical appearance, or be worried about the future in general. Usually dreams that have someone cheating on your represent fear and anxiety.

Also, being cheating on represent a deep hidden fear that you might have. Although, the dreams may not actually represent the fear of someone cheating on you, it could represent your fear of failure in a work or project.
If you have a dream that you are the person doing the cheating then it could mean that you feel guilt for another aspect of your life. There is another possibility that your conscious mind is entertaining thoughts of cheating and these are reflected into your dream state. If a person is constantly thinking about cheating on their spouse or partner, chances are they might have a dream about it. Sometimes these dreams reveal the painful impact of cheating and allow us to experience the guilt of deed without actually going through with it.
Interpreting and Understanding Cheating Dreams
When trying to analyze a cheating dream it is important for you to look at the specific situations and circumstances that you encounter in the dream. Is there a particular person that you are cheating with or someone is cheating on you with? You should always take note of the specific locations, people, objects and places in the dream.
Remember that your conscious mind can influence your dream. For example, if you are jealous of a coworker because of her good looks, this jealousy could be reflected in a dream of your spouse having an affair with her. Always take note of any conscious thoughts that could have influence over these dreams.
It is important to find the underlying root cause of the dream that is often hidden in an insecurity you have with yourself. Remember that most cheating dreams are not a reflection of reality, but reflection of an insecurity. Although there are some dreams that can offer an omen of truth, it is important to thoroughly analyze your dream before you come to this conclusion.
