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.

Dreams about an Ex Boyfriend

dreams about boyfriendDreaming of an ex-boyfriend may show unresolved feelings of love, or a current unsatisfying relationship.  The ex-boyfriend may be a symbol of all the hopes of love that you desire and are not being granted by the current relationship.  Alternatively, seeing an ex-boyfriend in a dream may also suggest that the return of a problem or a bad habit.  It could also be your subconscious warning you that you are recommitting bad habits, perhaps dating someone like your ex-boyfriend that wasn’t good for you.

If you have a enduring desire for your ex-boyfriend, than dreaming about them may represent the desire for something that you can’t have.  Another, simple explanation for dreaming about an ex-boyfriend may be that you just have unresolved feelings for them, or that your current boyfriend reminds you of your ex, either positive or negative.

Dreaming about a Boyfriend Usually Indicates Feelings

All in all dreaming about your boyfriend can simply be a reflection about your feelings for him and the nature of your relationship.  If in the dream things seem rocky, then you should assess your relationship.  If in the dream everything is rose colored and wonderful, then you are happy with how things are and shouldn’t worry.  In either case, dreaming about love interests indicates you have feelings for them, one way or another.

    I’ve been having dreams the past 2 weeks now abt my boyfriend not really making an effort and not really caring but he didn’t break up with me really… It still hurts though. Actually I took a nap earlier and I did dream he was flirting with another girl. I have been dreaming every night for the past 2 1/2 weeks abt random things but mostly abt him and my ex (who is my bestfriend). what should I do?

    I dreamt that i went to a concert with my friend family and my boyfriend tag along. So we wanted to eat at a cafe. He bought something for me then suddenly a girl came to my side and seated right beside me as was told from my boyfriend. i thought she was just a friend, and the shocking part was he puts his hand on her and keep feeding her so i got angry and scolded him. It triggered me to slap him and thats when i realised it was my ex boyfriend! But the whole time i saw is my boyfriend and the whole time was i know it was my boyfriend im dreaming. Even after i slapped my ex boyfriend face, im still thinking it was my boyfriend. And lastly in the dream, he didnt run after me yet he went with that girl… im curious and im also feeling too broken for this dream :(

Then the next night I had a dream that I was mad at him and hitting him because he left me. The whole time in the dreams he has this smirk little smile on his face like he dosent care. We have been dating for a little over a year and he lives with me. What does this mean?

      To dream that your boyfriend is dead means that in the waking world you may feel that part of your relationship is dead or things aren’t working out anymore.

  • Haley

    Last night I had a dream that I met a guy who I was really interested in, but I have a boyfriend (for over two years now) and I ended up leaving my boyfriend for the other guy. Which scares me a little because recently I haven’t been feeling the same towards my boyfriend. Does this mean it’s possibly time to let go of him? I’ve been feeling this way for a couple weeks now but I just don’t know how to react to it. I don’t want to hurt him but I feel like I’ll just end up leaving.. Help please. :/

    I dreamed I was sitting by my boyfriend, we were talking about a book(which one, i remembered so clearly in dream, but as i woke up no more remember), but the atmosphere is quite and a bit sad. I said I will write him diary of what i learnt from the book. He said he will make a dictionary for me with note/explaination of the difficult points which I don’t understand in the book. But i don’t know why in the dream when he said will make a dictionary for me as gift, I feel he is going to leave me and leave this as memory. I was so sad and just about to hug him, i woke up. and I really feel so pain.

    I love him so much. we are in distance. These days, I feel he is a bit cold to me, do not contact with me initiatively as before. I am not sure is that bcz i was busy those days and cold him while he didn’t feel fine. or it bcz sth else? what does it mean of the dream??

    Two days ago idreamed that my ex boyfriend was dead and i found of video of him saying he loves me. Then yesterday i had dreamed that me and him were texting and making jokes. Idont believe dreams mean anything but . . .

      Very strange dream. Sounds like he is definitely in your thoughts for you to be dreaming of him that often. I think the first dream you have of him could be your subconscious mind telling you how much your boyfriend appreciates you, even though he might not sure it on a regular basis.

  • Esha

    I’ve been with my boyfriend almost 4 years. We are about to have our first child. We’ve been going through somethings …. so this last year has been rocky. Last night I had a dream that he left me for this girl he had sex with way before he met me. What is this.?

    • SallyP

      Anytime you are going through big changes like having your first changes there is always the fear of the future and the unknown. It is not unusually for women to have dreams about their partner cheating on them when they are become closely tied together with someone they love. You should ask yourself what is causing the trust issues in your relationship. You might find that you are simply having anxieties of the big changes that are about to happen and your deep fear is that he won’t stick by your side. It is important for you to use your own intuitions and guidance to understand the true meaning of your dream. Good luck :)

    This month i dream that i’m loving my girlfriend more than 20 day , what the cause let me dreaming about she evey night

  • amanda

    I have had my boyfriend for over a year and things have been great and I love him. Buy last night I had a dream about him loving another girl and he told me while me and him were having sex. What can this mean?

    • SallyP

      Sounds like there are some trust issues in your relationship. Usually dreams about cheating and partners having sexual relations with other people are arisen from underlying issues that you might have. Maybe your subconscious has noticed something your conscious mind fails to see or you are simply being overly fearful. Try and find what is causing you to have the trust issues with your partner.

    My boyfriend and I have been dating for almost 8 months. Our annibersary is on Christmas. Our third month we dated he hurt me. He was on instagram talking to his ex asking her to give him oral sex. Then a month later he lied to me sayin he was at the gas station but he really went to go talk to and walk with another girl. I forgave him and ever since then I been having dreams about him leaving me for other women. in my dream he had sex with his ex best friend, he tried to come on to my friend, and he went to homecoming with another girl and I got upset which it was a little weird. Can someone help me please?

    • Jen123

      Sounds like your boyfriend has exhibited all of the signs of a complete waste of your time. Your dream is trying to show you that you need to move and think about something else. This guy doesn’t treat you like any respectable gentleman should treat their girlfriend. The best thing you can do is break up with him and look for a more quality guy. The dream is trying to tell you that he will cheat on you the moment the opportunity arises. Just my two cents.

    • Amanda

      This reply might be a bit late but it seems to me like you are still in high school? I don’t mean to be mean this is just my opinion but I think you should leave him. A guy that does those kinds of things will always be like that until he falls enough after he’s had enough. If its not with you he will cheat on someone else. He will also ask you for sexual things and use the old excuse “prove your love for me”. I was lucky enough to have gotten such a great man in my life and I’ve been with him for 4 years now. It hasn’t been a happy yellow brick road. He also cheated on me the first 2 years of our relationship. Its very embarrassing to say. I left him that day and had constant nightmares. We finally worked thw things that bothered us and now were morw happier than ever. He proved he was trustworthy again over time but it’s his last chance. So please don’t stay with him just because you “love him” stay if you can work out out between the two of you and be happy after. Make him prove himself to you, you’re the queen of the relationship! Be strong and move on if he’s worthless.
