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.

Can someone please tell me why i am having these dreams and what this last one meant ?

  9. I am always dreaming about my boyfriend cheating and leaving me. In my dream, he’s cheating with one of my friends. He seems to treat me coldly and cheats even when when I’m around. He alse gets annoyed with me always in my dream. On the contrary, he’s a very loving and caring in real life. Someone that you don’t think can actually do the things he did in my dreams. What’s the meaning of my dreams?

    • I have been having the same dream, reoccurring, the dream has a different type of situation, but it’s the same girl everytime. Except were not close friends, it’s his ex girlfriend.

    • I’ve had those same dreams where my boyfriend ignores me and cheats on me right in front of me. And in person he too is loving and sweet. So one day i checked his phone and found out that He had been cheating on me while I was at work and even brought her to our home. So in a way he was cheating right under my nose.

  10. I had a dream just this morning about me having a talk with someone, he’s a friend. Then we are heading to a gathering. I sat at the table and later on, my boyfriend in reality comes with his new girlfriend in my dreams. In reality we were in a relationship, but in my dreams, we broke up i guess and he was with another girl.
    The girl has a long hair, she’s kinda fat. Opposite with mine. 🙂
    What does this imply?

  11. I keep having this repeat dream that my fiancé leaves me, and that he wants to take my son, and when my daughter is off the breast her too. And then we fight and everything always goes back to the words but we were suppose to get married. HELP!

  12. Hi all,

    My boyfriend has been dreaming about me leaving him. Twice this week he has dreamt this. He says in his dreams we remain close and that it seems we are a famous, because the world wants to know why we broke up.
    In real life, we are easily one of the best couples we know. No arrogance intended, we just are so insanely and openly happy, we don’t keep any secrets from each other and we are madly in love. Only this week we made some very big plans for our future together – marriage and babies in the next few years. I can’t imagine any reason why we would break up, but these recurrent dreams about us scares me. I am about to file for divorce from my former husband so we can have the future we want together, perhaps he is doubting my ability to stick by him?
    The other thing that further concerns me is that I did a home oracle card reading with my best friend the other day. The past and present cards were quite accurate then I turned the Heartbreak angel card over (which was positioned in my future). We both have terminally ill mothers (which is a daily heartbreak for me), so I don’t know if it could have related to that rather than heartbreak in the romantic sense?

    Please help put my mind at ease. 🙂

  13. I have been dreaming a lot about my boyfriend leaving me for someone better. In these dreams I always beg him to stay. It gets so bad that I cry in my sleep. My housemates have woken me up asking if I was okay. Just recently, it’s started to effect me more, causing a weird depression to set over me and I tend to cry at a moments notice. I don’t understand, am I just that insecure?

  14. First off let me start by saying I never remember my dreams. This morning I woke up, and remember everything very vividly. My ex boyfriend was outside my house and my father was out there as well. My ex boyfriend asked for my dads approval to take me out. My dad ends up approving and my ex goes home to get ready. When my ex comes to pick me up, my current boyfriend come to the house with flowers and gifts. I look out the window they aren’t arguing which is weird.. My ex sees my current boyfriend and heads back to his house, my boyfriend follows him and talks to him outside his patio, I ended up leaving with my current boyfriend , I turn back around and my exes face was so depressing, it broke my heart.. What could this mean?

  15. Me and my boyfriend are a little ways away for a while. I had a dream where he came to my school and did nothing but hug me, I have a wild imagination so he had a weird power, he turned a couple people into things and he really likes clowns, so he turned the room dark and had magically got a clown face, I simply smiled at him. After that was over, the teachers started calling him a devils child, I got PISSED. I was screaming no he’s not! And he just hugged me again and whispered don’t worry as long as I’m with you, I don’t care about anyone else.. Then my dream ended

  16. I had a lucid dream where it began as my boyfriend asked my name from behind me and we hugged. Then, human Princess Celestia noticed a door near us almost opening and looked at us and said, “We must hide. It is not safe here.” Which I replied with “What..?” and bf still right next to me said “You’re dreaming, but there are these really badass villians that want to kill us and we don’t have weapons, so-” The door opens. “HIDE!” and I’m in a window sill thing staring at the door. All of a sudden, it opens with a really bright light and the dream ends.

  17. I had a dream I was out with my bf he viewed a new flat then we went to a bar were he met the bar maid. He sent me home an he stayed out with her then they moved in his new flat together an he left me

  18. My bf and I have a long distance relationship.
    It was a realistic dream, I could almost feel being there but I wasn’t and it’s not a memory.

    In my dream, I somehow managed to come into his room through his closet. It’s an open closet with a curtain and I was sitting just behind the curtain shuffling passed towards him which wasn’t far.
    He was laying and I was sitting on the floor beside him. He was taking a nap and I was playing with his hair. He woke up eventually and laid on his side facing me. He looked at me softly but seriously and looked kinda sad, then looked to the floor or my hand maybe both. He held my hand and started playing with it, kinda like fidgeting, locking and unlocking fingers, squeezing finger tips, matching our hands together and stuff (it’s not unusual for him to do so). Then he sat up slightly, locked fingers and sandwiched my hand between both of his, squeezing softly, then unlocked but continued the sandwich. He stopped fidgeting a little and said ‘I do want you you know’ then gave me a quick glance with a sad expression as if he was going to cry. I just smiled at him even though he wasn’t looking and said ‘Hmm I know’ in a soft cheerful ‘I know silly’ tone. I brushed through his hair while he was still playing wih my hand. Our eyes met and he still looked sad, subtle tears in his eyes but I didn’t seem surprised and just kept smiling softly. He let go of my hand and gestured to lay next to him so I did and he just hugged me tightly but gently. I fell asleep in the dream and woke up in real life.

    Even though it’s not unsual, it keeps playing over and over in my head. Sometimes the full thing or just a replay of the short dialog.

    • It’s not bugging me but I don’t know…it’s just always on my mind since I dreamt it.

      Can someone explain it?

      I think it may be that he said ‘want’ rather than ‘love’ that’s subconsciously bugging me… But at the time ‘want’ had a stronger meaning. A week later he said both when he messaged me in the morning.
      Maybe I just miss him…

      • Maybe he said and did all the things you keep your self from admitting you need him to do and say when you aren’t together. In your sleep, your mind finally used the dream as a way to get what it needed – real physical contact, reassurance, and to know he doesnt just love you or need you but WANTS you. Even if its just the feeling of your hand in his.

        Or… maybe astral projection is real and you visited him while the two of you were sleeping. The ultimate way to communicate long distance! When your souls meet on the astral plain! … less likely though

  19. Serena Rockwood on

    I just had a dream that my boyfriend was somewhere in a tux, and i came to stop by and see him. well he was flirting with another girl, meaning he was putting his hands around her, and touching her. so i flipped out, i mean i went crazy. like a crazy woman would. and after that i dont remember….but i told him about the dream and all he said was that i was stressed and didnt get enough sleep…im really confused on what my dream is telling me..somebody please help me.

    • Maybe paranoia that he could be with someone else without you knowing? I don’t know, probably your subconcious getting to your paranoia side?

  20. Miss Cristina on

  21. Hey!
    I dreamed about me and my boyfriend.
    So it went like this.
    I was working in a Hotel then my Boyfriend and his wife and his baby daughter came to the Hotel. Then I entertained them.
    Then he grabbed me and then pulled me to a corner.
    And said ”Please come back to me. You’re the girl I love and I love the most.”
    And I said ”You have a family now. It’s not allowed any more.”
    Then he walked away, he was very sad.
    Please tell me what it means. Thank you!

  22. i dreamed that my father takes me to a building and opens up a room in which a man was lying on a bed covered with a white cloth.

    • Oyfriend yelled don’t hurt her I love that cat then I ran arround and saw him laying in the snow and I asked if he was okay and he did not reply and then I went under these steps with my friend and we was talking about having a sleepover and ya

  24. I keep on having a recurrent dream that my boyfriend intentionally tries to stay away from me, instead opting to sit next to a girl I cannot stand. Some dreams theyre laughing and talking together, completely ignoring me, and other times he’s just ignoring me. I want these dreams to stop; its making me insecure in real life and I hate it so much. Please help me! Maybe if i figure out what these dreams mean I can move on with my dream life.

    • DIANA,
      I had a similar dream, where my boyfriend is at everyone else’s needs, and paying attention to everyone but me. In my dream I was in danger and running for my life, to walk into my house to find him at home with all these woman having the time of his life as if I don’t exist. I blow up and tell him I have been suffering and he just turns his back to entertain someone that is of no importance. It’s been a reoccurring dream so that’s why I think theres definitely some underlying tension, that we haven’t been able to talk about. On top of that we do have a quite a gap in age difference so thy could also have a lot to do with why I feel this way.

  25. Someone Random on

    Ok so this morning, my boyfriend told me that he had a nightmare that the police officers came and took me away and he couldn’t see me anywhere or visit me at all. Plz we love each other so much so I need to find out what this means IM SO CONFUSED!

    • Miss Random,
      You’re boyfriends dream indicated that on some level, he believes this relationship to be wrong. That he is doing something wrong by being with you. Also, that other lookers on, authorities or anyone else with power over you, would object to the relationship as well. May I ask your age? I assume you are young, in your teens perhaps. I can’t see an adult being so rattled or confused over a dream such as this. Then again, I may be wrong. I think that possibly you are under age, and that you are either hiding this relationship, or the relationship is not accepted by those who care for you. Maybe you and he have spoken about you moving in with him, or maybe you have been spending time together in which the people who care for you think you are elsewhere. At any rate he is having stressful dreams of your current situation. He may possibly not be ready to take the relationship to the next step or is fearful or the consequences if he does. With love……
