“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.

    Please help me. I’m scared and confused…

    Last night I had a dream about running around in the mall frightened.
    There was this person chasing me and looked like he wanted to kill me. In the dream I kept on yelling out my boyfriends name, like I was trying to find him. But all of a sudden in the dream it went black and I felt like I was falling so I kept on yelling out his name. Then in the dream someone picked me up nicely ( I didn’t know who) but I thought I was my boy friend till the person took me into a room, turned on the lights and it turned out not to be him.
    That scene ended and this other one came on. I was still looking for him but I never did find him when the dreams ended.
    And when I woke up in the morning I was clenching on to a stuffed animal that he gave me for Valentine’s day.

    Please help me. He is my first actual boyfriend who I want to be with for a long time. And if there’s anything that you could do and help me figure out why this happened please do.

  2. I need advice or something, so my fiancé and I have been in long distance relationship for 7 months been together for 5 years. He is flying down from New Hampshire to live with me again and I have so many feelings and emotions he’s coming in 4 days. Which leads me to my dream last night, he was dressed like a guy but his eyebrows were done and long hair his voice changed like a transgender and didn’t want to talk me to he was grinding on my friend and wouldn’t even talk to me and there was nothing I could do to fix it. It was really bizarre.

  3. I had a dream last night that I was cooking pancakes and I heard a voice behind me. I turned around to see my boyfriend. He kissed my forehead and then my lips. When I opened my eyes again he was gone. I was video chatting him from 1500 miles away. Then it flashed forward to the school dance and there were many guys asking to dance this one slow song with me, I kept saying no, that my boyfriend would be there soon. I requested a song and then (In the dream) I went back to sleep ’til it played. After that (still in the dream) I woke up next to my boyfriend, wrapped in his arms. But in reality I woke up alone

  4. Please help me…. last night i dream about my ex boyfriend who is dead… i saw him in a glass coffin along with his mother and father… my parents urges me to visit him and to look at hom because they think he is still alive…. then when i go to see him i did not go to his coffin but i talked to people around… just then i just saw he opened his eyes when he heard my voice.. opened the glass coffin and stand up… i look at him and went to him directly… he was looking at me with that smile of his smile… the smile he always have before when we are still in love… when i got near, he kissed me all over my face.. then i kissed him in the lips… all people are staring at us as if they are waiting for it to happen… and what is weird is that his parents also went back to life…. i really dont know the meaning of this….

  5. I dreamt that my boyfriend is walking in a bit crowded location at least because a few strangers are between us in an alley. I exhausted all my vocal cords power to call him but he could not hear me. I saw a shortcut to where he is heading and took that route. When, I was almost near him, the place again became crowded until he passed by me in that new route unable to hear nor see me. The feeling was so bad for i felt he truly loves me but he did not stop from walking. I was without any clue where he is heading up to.

  6. I saw that my b.f is my husband in my dream and 2 month baby. 6 month ago i saw i have married my b.f. wearing red lehanga .plz tell me what is the meaning of it?

  7. I dreamed last night that my boyfriend on our holiday at the coast just left me there hanging after he saw an ex of his and just left me with no explanation, the dream was so real and full of emotion and shock. because he just went to her and left me not minding me or what I have to say.

  8. So my girlfriend had a dream and she said we were having sexy which is unusual for us because we made a pact not to have sexy or even kiss until we got married and so she said our pastor from our church Wales in and kinda just looked at him for a second and then kept on going and then moments later his son Wales in and his son is a friend of her and me and so then we kept on going but then her ex walks in and we just looked at him for a second than kept going but then she said the weirdest part about it was that we didn’t even care that they were there and we’re were not a shamed or in barest. Can somebody please explain this to me this dream is driving us both insane.

    • Not only you happen this… Like that thing happen in our culture also.. If we cry they happy… We cant understand some people.. They tell lise to us.we belive them very much. That is d reson to get tears to us my dear.. If u like to talk with me msg my email..

  9. Your dreamt my boyfriend bringing me a wedding dress which was pinky and white in colour. I loved it but I didn’t like it for my wedding though, I wanted to go in the shop and choose one for myself.

  10. i had a dream about my boyfriend multiple times but the thing is hes in jail and hes gonna be there for a while..i miss him terribly

  11. Can anyone elaborate on this for me? I’m confused.. . ” A boyfriend leaving you in a dream may mean that certain aspects of your life are no longer helpful or supportive for you”

  12. i had a dream that my ex boy friend ran away from me when i tried to give him a gift

    i had another dream about giving him his christmas gift but insted yelled at me for emmbarising him in front of his friends

    the thing i found out about this is the friends part because his friends where against our relation ship 🙁

  13. So my dream had my boyfriend in it. He and I can both agree that we’re very happy with our relationship but it wasn’t a “wonderful” dream. It revolved around him, a steep hill with forests, and a buck (male deer). My boyfriend and I were holding hands and walking down a forest path and the buck lifted his head and flapped his tail. He was staring directly at us. As soon as the deer looked at us, my boyfriend disappeared. I looked around but I didn’t see him so I just ignorantly pet the deer.
    THEN…The DEER ran off!
    The buck led me to a darker forest without paths and without light. The deer’s antlers starting glowing and showing me where to go. He finally took me to my final destination and as I turned around he wasn’t there.
    I looked up inside the cave (that the deer brought me to) to see a small opening of light shining down on what looked like some kind of shrine. My boyfriend was there leaning up against the shrine, staring at me.
    It wasn’t a creepy stare. It also wasn’t a casual or romantic stare. It was a stare he WOULD NEVER or I’d never see him making at me personally.
    This stare was like reject. It was a deep stare that I was scared to look at…but that was when I woke up :p
    What does this mean?

    • It’s all in the dream,something dreams aren’t that complex, pay attention to details,look at the path as a journey,yall walk together at first then a situation came up (the deer )he disappeared,but you took the situation on and find where it lead you ,which so you at the end instead of your bf being proud he didn’t approve (rejected)it or you, things in this relationship will be hard because someone is pretending to care when clearly doesn’t,and you know who.

  14. I dream a lot that I have a boyfriend, while in real life I am single and never have had a boyfriend ever. Although it is true that I want a boyfriend more than anything in the world, I am hoping that this dream could mean anything. I study psychology and and am too scientific and sceptical to believe it actually does. I have read enough in my course material to know that dreams are nothing but a reflection of our own feelings, desires, fears and thoughts. Either conscious or subconscious. I think it is because I want a boyfriend so badly that I dream this a lot. But still I feel so happy after dreaming this, and since I have always been a very vivid dreamer and thus picture his face clearly in my mind (and I swear it is a face I have never seen before), I still hope that one day I will meet him..

  15. Ms. No Name on

    I Always Dream That Me And My Boyfriend Are Holdin Hands Or Kissing. Usually Were Riding In Some Type Of A Vehicle, Or Whatching People Fight. In Real Life We Basicall Don’t Touch Other, Other Than Holding Hands. Were Pretty Much An “Awkward” Couple.

  16. Your Comment I dreamed my boyfriend this afternoon he came to see me it was like I was at the funeral house and he followed me then I asked him that lets go home he never wanted to leave a the very place he wanted us talking just there then at last he accepted to take me home then on our way we were having kisses and hugs we found people who were about to fight and they started fighting with guns then I asked my boy friend let’s go let’s not know much information about this at last this people can shoot us by mistake but my boyfriend was like he wanted to see and know what’s happening

  17. i had a dream today were i had to fight to get to my boyfriend by going through all my fears i have at this big game mansion, but when i got through and got to him after all my hard work he just ignored me and walked away from me with his friends what does that mean ……. i love him with all my heart i really do

  18. I dreamed him twice (Yesterday & today) but tbh I don’t clearly remember yesterday’s dream, I can say that he was being nice & sweet; Last night’s dream was different, we were in a mall & a girl got up to us & just started talking to him & they stood talking there for hours & I swear it seemed like he felt attracted by her (I remember how she looked like, but I’ve never seen her before in my life) I mean, I feel a little bit insecure about it but what does it mean?

  19. I had a dream of my boyfriend holding my hand and he said that he is breaking me up. That was all. Is it because we’re in a long distance relationship? Or god is just telling me something else?

  20. I had a dream i got cheated on or left by a guy i don’t know . In the dream there wasn’t really a set location , the first part i’m doing homework ( although i’m not in school anymore ) then have kind of like a flashback of a guy saying ” i didn’t really like you / i did like you but she means more / i’m sorry ” but it’s like bits and pieces , afterwards this same guy ( he has no face literally ) pops up but he’s kissing this girl and he’s holding her . I get upset for some reason and i just glare forward and have a conversation with myself in my head ( i can’t believe this , what about me , how can he do this ) . The girl is also unknown she doesn’t have a face ethier but i seem to know both of them not personally but like just the feeling of seeing them before although they don’t have faces . It switches to me at my grandmother’s house and i’m still upset the couple are sitting on the couch and i walk past them to go outside because i don’t want them to see i’m upset and i want to put on a show of indifference . I walk back inside and they have stood up , it’s weird because they stand infront of each other her hands on her chest one holding the other and the guy has his hands on her shoulder . They just look at each other even though they don’t have actual faces , overall the guy gave me the feeling of not actually knowing him but after he tells me he likes the other girl and i witness them kiss i get the feeling of knowing him only because of what he just said and what i saw . As far as the girl it seems like i don’t know her but when they kiss i got the feeling of ( he told me not to worry about her or like i was suspicious of her at some point ) . I don’t know what the dream means but i felt like i dreamt it once before , this time around upon waking up i felt sorta sad but the feeling didn’t stay long now i feel weird like i don’t understand the feeling i have now

  22. I have a steady dream of leaving my ex over and over and every time I do he continuously beats me. This has happened before but I want to know why the nightmares are there and so vivid

  23. Hi! It’s a beautifully written article ..
    I too have dreams about my boyfriend who works in the army. Most of the dreams occur early in the morning. Since two days I’ve been seeing him come to me riding his scooter. It’s so realistic and makes me very happy as I haven’t seen him for months.. Can you please tell me the meaning of my dream?

  24. I had a dream that felt so real it was like or as if it was happening which the dream was in my house and I seen everything in my room and I heard my boyfriend voice and also another woman. Was my dream trying to tell me that he talks to another woman?

  25. I just woke up from a dream and felt so good. I told my family to organize a wedding party for me. They did even though no one has ever seen my bf. Then I realized thered be no bridegroom coming to the wedding and I’m in the wedding dress be left alone. Then with that fear in mind, I wandered and went to pray. Suddenly, at the place where I was on my knees praying, some boy in his wedding clothes came with a man ( I guess his Dad) and he came to me, bent down and kissed me on my cheek. After that we had a gathering with many friends. We were sitting opposite each other at two ends of the long table the group is sitting. People chit chat jokingly said something about us two being a couple. He said yes, he would marry me. I was so happy because there’s an insecurity and worry that no bf was gonna show up at my wedding and it’d be a shame for me and my whole family. Before that, i even planned of hiring someone to be my bridegroom and when the weddings over, we dont need to have any relationship. Luckily, this strange and kind boy came to me and agreed to really marry me. Next scene of the dream, we werr walking hand in hand along a street then all of a sudden he left me to go somewhere. I tried to look and finally saw him. He turned out to be someone who has supernatural abilities, wtf… I dont need that, he can be just a normal guy and Id still feel very warm. However, I felt this boy could protect me well. At the end of the dream, we were on a motorbike, being confused I was thinking about evrything just happened. Then I suddenly hugged him from behind. I felt very lucky to have such a bf in my life even though I heard some old woman saying something abt him ( I guess not supportive because there’re creases on my forehead when hearing that). I guess I’m craving for a new relationship because Ive been single for long and those are the things I want us to do together.
