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 some 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, real 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 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 any more 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 an enduring desire for your ex-boyfriend, then 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 of 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.

  1. My boyfriend and I have been dating for about a month. We’re head over heels for each other and never have a dull moment. I had a baby with my ex before him and my boyfriend was involved with a girl before me who also had a child. At first he was the one having dreams of either me leaving him or someone coming along trying to take him away. But then a few nights ago, I had a dream that his ex was trying to take him away. What does this mean when we both have the same type of dream? We trust each other and haven’t givin each other any reason not to.

I called him and no answer..he called me I pick up I hear her in the background .then she gets on and tells me to stop calling and texting him he doesn’t want me never did and so on and so forth.. we go on fo a while. Me telling her let him b a man.. they hang up .. I texeted him u never cared. He texted back ure 100% right Denied. What does this mean .. should I tell him about the dream.

    • Before analyzing your dream it looks like your relationship is not built on a solid foundation. Anytime you are sharing a person with someone else, it shows that the person doesn’t have the same emotional attachment to you as you have to them. This sense of doubt shows up in your dream when your boyfriend essentially tells you that he doesn’t want to be with you anymore. Your subconscious is probably picking up specific signals and signs that he does not care about you the same way that you care about him.

      Usually when it comes to relationships we always doubt ourselves and try and deny what we know deep down to be true. Often the unconscious mind will give you specific signs to try and reveal this truth to your conscious mind. I think the dream might be a sign for you to move and and try to find someone else who can give you more in a relationship. The only person who can truly understand the meaning of this dream is you. It is up to you to piece together all the aspects of your current situation to give you the underlying truth of the dream. Good luck.

  3. I had this weird dream where me and this one guy(he is attractive) went to a bookstore. He was talking to me but I don’t really pay attention to him or perhaps I’m too shy to talk to him. He is so sweet and we have odd chemistry and sparks between us. Then I saw a book. I wanted to read it but by the time I reach the bookshelf, there’s no book there. And at the same time,this guy is somewhat sulking to me. I’m crazy worried. And in my dream, we looked like a university students.Could he be my future soulmate/boyfriend/husband? Just to let you know, I’ve never been in a relationship before. And what is the meaning of the bookstore?

  4. Hello, so recently my boyfriend and I have been fighting but we never break up because we both love each other and can’t live without each other. We’ve said this to each other all the time, and he’s the one always saying it first. But recently he’s been having dreams of me cheating on him with other people and he just allows it and sees me walking away. But I’ve never cheated on him or left him. He’s the only guy I’ve been serious with and I’m the only girl who he’s ever dated. But now he’s having dreams of this other girl he really really loved but he never told her how he felt and in those dreams he tells her how he feels and she admits it to him and they leave together happy. I know who the girl is and he’s told me every time he dreams this. But he’s never had a dream where we’re happy and like that, it’s always of me cheating and leaving. I’ve never had a dream of other guys and he’s the only one I dream about if I ever have dreams which are rare. I really need help because I feel like one day he’s gonna finally tell the girl who he used to love that he loves her (if he still does, I’m still unconvinced he doesn’t because I know she meant a lot to him) and then they leave and be happy and I’m left with a broken heart. I’ve planned my future already with him and we’ve been dating for 3 years. I’m scared that the dream is telling him to leave me.

In the dream he shows up with his kids to pick me up for a graduation and mind you in the dream we both knew we were married. My husband was actually at home when he came to pick me up so was my mum, dad, and sisters. I woke up from the dream in which I had on a jean and blouse but when I fell back asleep the dream continued. This time I changed my outfit because I noticed he was dressier and didn’t want to wear jeans so I changed into a pretty, girly dress which my sisters approved of. I kissed my hubby and said goodbye to all and went out to join my ex and his kids. I said hello to his son who was playing outside his car and that was it. I woke up confused because I was in no way thinking about him not even days before. So it was really strange.

  14. I had a dream that my boyfriend and I hadn’t seen each other in a long period of time and we “reunited” what would that mean?

  15. I had a dream last night that my boyfriend died in an accident and I can’t accept it so I was crying intensely and when I woke up I saw myself crying for real. Please help me, what does it mean?

  16. I had a dream that my boyfriend who i’ve been with for 7months left me for some other girl and in that dream he seemed to not even care that we had broke up. What would that mean? )’:

    • The dream could represent some anxiety that you have over your boyfriends current emotional state. Your boyfriend leaving you could represent your fear of losing control of your life. If someone leaves you then it is a loss of control and creates a world that is unstable. The dream could mean that you need to learn to accept things that are out of your control and focus on things that you have control over.

    • I had the same exact dream, I was so upset. I’m laying right next to him and he reassures me he loves me.

  17. I had a dream that both my current bf and my ex were in the same room and somehow I ended up next to him looking at my bf from a distance and decided to run away. Its a bit confusing

    • Whenever we leave a relationship it is quite common to have repeating dreams about old partners. The involving your current boyfriend and your ex indicates some confusion you might have in terms your relationships in general. Sometimes our ex boyfriend is a reminder of making wrong choices in life and a warning of repeating a bad habit. Running away from both shows that you might not be facing your problems head on and choosing to avoid them. Maybe you have issues that you have to deal with that you have been avoiding for some time.

  18. Tyler and I are just friends.. I broke up with him 4 months ago because he wasn’t my type. We actually still hanged out after that and acted like everything was fine a few months. He had to move away and he came over for a bit. I walked him home and we said our goodbyes. I did grow feelings for him after awhile because I’ve known him for 7 months. I’ve grown to know him better. I dreamed of him the other night just walking with him. That’s it, just walking and walking. No talking just walking.. I think I’m dreaming of this because I never told him how I really felt and let him walk away. What do you think?

    • Dreams are often a reflection of our subconscious thoughts that are present in our waking state that we are not able to verbally express. If you feel that you didn’t get a chance to tell Tyler how you felt, this dream might be an expression of this feeling for him. To dream that you are walking with Tyler may represent you walking towards a specific goal of yours. If you are walking with ease, you maybe be moving towards your destination.

  19.

    • destiny rodriguez on

      Girl.. In my opinion your day dreaming because ur slowly falling in love I do the same thing c; and a dream
      Doesn’t necessarily mean he loves or doesn’t love u it comes naturally just give it time 🙂 I’m sure everything will work out and by the sound of it if u guys have been dating 5 months then he seems to be in love with u I’m sure just keep the relationship healthy and stick together 🙂 hope i helped!

  20. well i had a dream about my ex and we broke up 2 weeks ago and the same day i had the dream he talked to me and he smile at me and i made him laugh and then when i had the dream he had another girlfriend who abused him and then i messed up something but i told my friend it was not on purpose then he got pissed off at me then i walked off and my bestiie belie(nick name her real name is anabella) came and sat next to me and tell me everything was okay then she made me laugh then my ex came (Declan) and he said you wanna go on a ride with me then he said you just fall like the free fall(cause we went out on camp then the day befor we broke up he told me to go on the free fall at questicon) but there was a twist we had to hold hand but he went out on the other side then when we got to the bottom the we sat next to each other and laughed then he said chichi i really miss you (i think thats what he said) then i said then kiss me then he what then i said kiss me then we kissed then i woke up and tere was nothing else when i went back to sleep plz some one tell me what it means

  21. I had a dream last night that my boyfriend left me,
    because he didn’t love me anymore.
    It was weird, because the last message I got from him,
    said “I love you.”
    there was a lot of other weird things going on in my dream.
    (same dream,) I had an ice cream truck pull up to my window,
    with a ladder, and serve me banana splits (and Im pregnant.)
    but because my “friend” (who is generally just an aquaintance,) stole my ice cream, I tried to drown her in the bathtub.
    His friends were calling me (still
    in the dream) and harassing me, and wouldn’t let me speak to him,
    they’d disconnect the call when I asked for him.
    (I do NOT get along with any of the three specific people that were “calling.”)
    It was just all around weird, and disturbing.
    I’m not sure whether to call it a dream, or a nightmare.
    I woke up in tears, and have been up for two hours now,
    unable to shake it, or fall back asleep.
    I’m really confused about what it all means.
    I usually have nighmares when he doesn’t say goodnight,
    but this, Id have to say is the worst dream Ive ever had.
    I have never been in such a panic waking up,
    and it wasn’t even really that bad of a dream.
    I’ve had much more vivid, and gruesome nightmares.
    But this hit me the hardest.

    Anyone have any ideas what all of this could mean?
    Or had the same dream? Or something similuar?

  22. i had a dream that my boyfriend was texting me saying he didnt love me and he was going back to his ex

  23. I was dreaming about a ex boyfriend where he comes looking for me, I cant stop dreaming about him we are not together anymore
