  1. im thinking about breaking up with my boyfriend because ive been to busy to ever get to be with him but i had a dream about him, it was a good dream for sure, but now i have no idea if i should break up with him or not.

  2. This is the SECOND type of dream I’ve had
    The first one was my bf picking my best friend over me the recent one was him picking some other girl over me… both situations me and the girl or bestfriend was lost and he asked me to help find her and he gave her more love and support and he searched for her with me by his side but when he found her I would either wake up or run off crying while they’re kissing

    What does that mean for us?

  3. I had a dream of my current bf asking me to have his baby and in the dream he gave a significant time frame..what does this mean…also prior to this dream i had one where he was older. .like we grew old together and he just entered the room and ever thing looked heavenly and serene..what does this mean?

  4. That can way heavy on your conscious mind. I think the reason for your dream, judging by what you have said is because you have been thinking about it so much that it made its way into your subconscious. Ask him! that’s the only way to know for sure. If you remain unhappy… Then it’s time to leave. Don’t worry! When a door closes, other doors open.
