  1. I dreamt last night that I was naked, or near naked with someone who looked nothing like my boyfriend, yet I instinctively knew it was him. He was protecting me from something, tho at the time I didn’t know what (it turned out to be zombies but as I like zombie movies I’m pretty sure they themselves were nothing significant). What was strange about it, other than my boyfriend looking like someone else, is that it’s the first time I’ve had a positive dream about my boyfriend. He cheated on me several years ago and whilst I forgave him, it caused severe trust issues. I still have a lot of trouble trusting him so it was strange to finally dream about him protecting me. Can anyone shed any light on why he didn’t look like himself? And why after so long have a finally had a dream that put him in such a positive light?

  2. My boyfriend and I broke up four months ago and our break up was very nasty. We always had very ugly break-ups, but somehow managed to find our way back into each others’ hearts and lives. This last break up, I knew was a permanent one because lawyers were involved.

    We had a very passionate and love-filled relationship so I have mixed feelings about him right now… I hate his guts for everything that he put me through, but I sometimes find myself missing him, missing all the time we spent together and wishing that there was a chance we could get back together again. I’m feeling rather upset right now because yesterday I received two phone calls from an unidentified caller, and something in me told me that the person on the other side was this ex-boyfriend. When I picked up the phone, the caller hung up.

    Then I dreamt about him… I dreamt that he asked me to give our relationship another try and meet him at his parents’ house so that we can talk about us and then go to an evening function that he’d been invited to. So I agreed, got dressed in a beautiful black evening gown and went to his parents’ house. When I arrived, he was cold and distant towards me, and didn’t even want to look at me, let alone talk to me. Then he told me that he “doesn’t want to do this anymore” and that he has actually asked another woman to accompany him to the function. As he was talking, he looked in the direction of the door, as though he was anticipating this other woman to enter, and that’s what I ran out. When I got to my car, I broke down in tears and he came running after me, apologizing. I didn’t give him a chance to get close enough to talk to me so I started my car and sped off.

    I don’t know what to make of this dream. All I know is that I’m upset because I somewhat “re-lived” our last break-up through this lousy dream, I miss him, I hate him, I love him, I wish I’d never met him and I just want these tumultuous emotions to go away.

    I need peace of mind.

  3. So, I keep having dreams about my boyfriend, and like, last night, he was walking across the street, and I was headed in the opposite direction, and he ran up behind me and hugged me. Then I went swimming, and my mom was there.. What does this mean?

  4. I had a dream that I saw a Snapchat from my 16 year old cousin and she was on a baby swing and my boyfriend was swinging her and they were all laughing and he’s not suppose to hang out with her or talk to her in reality this dream scared the hell out of Me and made me mad, what does it mean though? This isn’t the first.

    • Without telling us why he is not allowed near your cousin, I can only surmise that you do not trust your boyfriend.

  5. I had a dream that my boyfriend and I were perfect and happy and spending a lot of time together ect. But then he hung out with his ex and I found out so I broke up with him and ran away crying. But then the next day I hung out with him with a group of friends and I broke down crying begging for him back saying I made a mistake and he was the best thing that happened to me so he kissed me and took me back and said to pretend like we never broke up and somehow we ended up at the high school together and I saw my old math teacher that I hated and the rest of the dream is stupid. But I don’t know what it means. In real like my boyfriend and I have a great relationship. He makes me really happy. So I’m just really confused

  6. In my dream me and my boyfriend were happy, like everyday, we hugged each other and laughed and all that..(he lives 2 hours away and we haven’t seen each other for 9 months) I guess it means I wish he was by my side and that I miss him right..?

  7. Okay so my boyfriend has been in trouble for like two weeks now and usally when he gets in trouble his mom will take away his phone for ahwile it happens all the time so last time I talked to him was Saturday when he sneaked out his phone and told me been in trouble don’t txt back even after this txt bye so yeah I haven’t talked to him in a while so last night I had a dream about him and I was on snapchat and he snapchatted me because we always snapchat and he said his phone was taken away and he told me why and I got all sad and just said alright and he said I love you so what does that mean ?

  8. I had a dream that me, my dad, and my sister moved. And I got a boyfriend. It ended when we got near an old building, he. freaked out, and I woke up. It’s weird because I am going to move, I think I saw the guy that was my boyfriend, and my ex still has feelings for me

  9. These past two nights, I’ve been dreaming about having new boyfriends, two different boys, two different nights. and both of these boyfriends had blonde hair and blue eyes. My physical preferences usually consist of brown hair and brown eyes. My current boyfriend has red hair and brown eyes.. But anyway, In the first dream, I cheated on my current boyfriend for this one blonde guy who kept smiling at me and gave me several kisses. It was cute and while that was happening I kept thinking of the scene before I started loving on the blonde boy where I was holding and kissing my current boyfriend (in the dream). The blonde guy in my dream from the night before last night is someone that is in my grade that I’ve seen in school and had been in classes with but I never would think of having feelings for the guy he just isn’t my type.
    Last night I dreamed that my boyfriend and i completely broke up. The night before it was me cheating on him but this time me and him completely broke up. It started with me and my current boyfriend always having complications so we both took a break and went our separate ways. Then it was me who asked him if he wanted to start dating me again (and that’s weird because I’m a girl!) and he said no. I was obviously depressed and then this other blonde boy came along. Again like I said, different boy from the dream the night before. I know this boy also but I’m not friends with him, I’ve just seen him around school, he’s been in my classes and I’ve never had any kind of feelings for the guy because I barely knew him and from what I know he doesn’t meet my preferences.
    Now back to what I was saying. Now this next one here really had a thing for me and he had asked me out and I went right for it and said yes. As time progresses on during one of our first days of dating he at one point was holding me in his arms looking me deep in the eyes and gave me a kiss. Then he was playing video games and I was watching over his shoulder. That’s all I remember.

  10. I dreamt that my ex had changed for the better and he was trying to say sorry for his behaviour before abd wanted to try again.

  11. my boyfriend and I have been dating for almost 3 months, I’ve been having dreams about him a lot more frequently now. the dreams are good. I can tell we’re both nervous about us meeting the parents. so in the dream we’re always by our self some where random. but the dreams were good, nothing bad happened. it just felt like a dream where I was just with him and would randomly talk and do activities at that random place. but in my last dream my dad (who doesn’t know i’m dating anyone because I don’t live with him) came to pick me up, and you could tell he was nervous when he met them but he did amazing. does this dream mean anything? (my mom knows about it but she doesn’t like that i’m dating)

  12. I had a dream that my boyfriend left me for another girl & I was nonstop crying & I got in a fight with that girl. I love my boyfriend so much I felt sad when I woke up.

  13. It was valentines day and I decided to have a party I was going to take a shower when my boyfriend came in i had a towel on and mumbled some words and I said I was just going to take a shower and I also told him I would be back and that’s when it ended. could someone please tell me what this dream means !?

    • I had a dream where I was eating with my little sister and saw my boyfriend he was with his family so I pretended not to see him but he came to me and hugged me and all his family was there, and my ex boyfriends cousin who really doesn’t like me, and she whispered to me “can we be friends” I hesitantly said yes and then me and my boyfriend and friends were at a quincenera and I saw my ex there….and then I was walking someone where and saw a girl from high school and I was always kind of jealous of her. What does this mean?

  15. I keep dreaming about meeting my boyfriends family, I have already met his parents and he is a only child, but in my dreams he has a brother and we get on pretty well. It could mean nothing but it’s rather strange.

    • To me I would say it means that your mother doesn’t like him and or your mom knows some things and he’s not right for you …. idk but to think positive hmmm idk that’s a quit negative strange dream.

  16. when i was with my ex i had a vision type thing. it wasn’t a dream i knew he was there in a way.he was laying right beside me in my bed,he looked at me and smiled ,like he was really happy to see me or something.it felt like he was trying to say goodbye but saying its ok at the same time. i closed my eyes then opened them and he was gone. i thought he died but i saw him the next day at school. he was perfectly fine. i asked him if he was falling out of love and he said no ,we stayed together for one more month then yeah,the rest is my fault. i tried to not think of what it was but two months later and i’m still worried about him.he told me recently that his satanism got worse and that he likes pain. i don’t know if this had anything to do with my “vision” but i cant find any answers anywhere! it sucks and i’m just trying to find answers. maybe he needs my help?i don’t know i just feel like i need to do something

  17. I had a dream about being strangled by someone and changed into my boyfriend not only was he trying to strangle me but he was trying to drown me in the bathroom’s sink -..help?
