Boyfriend Dreams – Everything You Need To Know


“Last night I dreamt of my Boyfriend!” Ahh, your boyfriend! I knew we’d get to this someday. Dreaming about a boyfriend can mean a number of things depending on the situation and circumstances of the dream. This article will help you understand some of the symbols surrounding these dreams. The meaning of boyfriend dreams will depend heavily on the current circumstances of your life.

What do these Dreams Mean?

Boyfriend DreamsWhen you dream of a specific person such as a boyfriend, you’ll need to concentrate more on the other symbols in your dream as your boyfriend can represent several different aspects or people in your life.

A boyfriend can be a friend, enemy, lover, companion, or the symbol of any of these things in the emotions. If he threatens bodily harm, however, it might be best to take this as a literal, true dream, and act according.

Dreams involving boyfriends can tap into several different emotions and reasoning’s behind their presence in your dreams. Often these kinds of dreams that include your boyfriend reflect real life concerns you have with them whether they are good or bad.


These dreams often show the underlying feelings, emotions or fears you have with the relationships, or perhaps portray your own struggle with your feelings in certain situations.  It could uncover fears for the future or reveal a fixation with the past.

If in the dream your boyfriend is dead, that may symbolize that you think the relationship is dead and over.  It could also mean you feel stagnated in the relationship; your needs and feelings are not being recognized or prohibited.  This kind of dream may suggest that you break off the relationship since it is not a positive one.  A boyfriend leaving you in a dream may mean that certain aspects of your life are no longer helpful or supportive for you.

Subsequently, the arrival of a new boyfriend represents new situations and aspects that will be helpful and supportive for you.   If the boyfriend in your dreams is loving and kind then that could mean you subconsciously believe that you are a person worthy of being loved.  It is a sort of way for you to reaffirm your love for yourself.

“Dreams involving boyfriends can tap into several different emotions…”

Should you dream of dating a friend’s boyfriend, it is not necessarily about the boy himself.  It may have more to do with slight envious feelings for you friend. You may desire certain qualities that they possess. It could also mean that you wish to be closer to said friend.

If you are dreaming about having another boyfriend there is a good chance that there is something that the ‘dream boyfriend’ is doing that you want you real life boyfriend to do. You should try talking to your boyfriend about these certain aspects and desired changes.

If you dream about your boyfriend being gay or that he doesn’t love you anymore than it can represent feelings about insecurities that you have in the relationship. It may also mean that your relationship is headed in a new direction and that you are having anxiety and fears about this changing situation.

I feel like she wanted something in me, but in my dream I remember is to lay on top of my body. We are opposite gender as well and we were laying on some bed or couch and I was holding her body as it brush against mine. I really can’t find the answer for this dream.

  4. I dreamed about my friend who happens to be a marine right now and my fiancée. In this dream, I dreamt that I had joined the Marines after getting married. And over time and going to war and being protected by my friend in battle I became close to him. My fiancé (husband in the dream)became distant and eventually filled for divorce and slowly I became more involved with my friend.

  5. I never see my boyfriend in my dreams. Very rarely it does happen, but I seem to forget who he is. I try hard to remember about him ending up in shreds of broken memories.
    Of all the people I know, this happens only with my boyfriend.
    Does that mean I don’t love him enough?

  6. I had a dream one minute I was with my boyfriend and family and then I was at my house but no one was in then my ex walks in my bedroom and i sleep with him but cried in my dream and instantly felt sick.

      It means that you must protect your relationship maybe some other girl is trying to separate you from your boyfriend

  11. I had a dream about my Fiance. It was really blissful. My fiance and I were on a picnick with someone. My fiance was sitting on the ground and against the tree, and I was sitting in between his legs. It was perfect weather and sitting there I felt complete bliss. It’s crazy how you can actually feel emotion, in your dream but this is truly the most blissful I have ever felt. I felt completely relaxed and all was right in the world. Also before this scene in my dream I was dreaming that my mom found love liked she has always wished. It was one of the best dreams I’ve have ever had. Sitting with the love of my life, and my mom finding true love.
