Last Updated on

“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. I had a dream I went on holiday with my boyfriend and it was amazing stunning place ( no idea where it was tho ) he told me to go get something from the room so of I went , then I got grabbed and taken to a room , I was tied up and the doors were locked and no windows I was there a few days and he untied me he said no one can hear you scream and you won’t last long out there, day after day I tried getting out I wanted my bf and my new baby so badly , I eventually saw the door slightly open so I made a run for it I got out searching for him everywhere I saw his clothes in there washing so I was excited he hadn’t left me I turned the corner and there he was , he looked so sad I shouted him he didn’t look I shouted him again and nothing, I ran up to him and I could hear himTalking so I stopped and listen , he said oh how I miss her I loved her so much I still love her , it’s going to be hard but I will always remember her , then it clicked I had died from some kind of accident , I couldn’t hold him to say I’m ok I couldn’t hold my baby I just wanted to tell him how much I loved him but couldn’t and then I woke up ran down stairs to make sure he was still here got a massive cuddle and god what a relief that was one scary messed up dream

  2. For the past 3 nights I have had dreams about my boyfriend leaving me.
    The first one: (I’ll make this on short) We were on vacation somewhere, I’m thinking it was Greece or somewhere… But We were at an airport, and everyone was panicking, we were about to get bombed. We were running, I think to the car, but he insisted we stopped at the bathroom because he had to pee. So we stopped and once he was done we were running again, but it was too late. He was a little ways behind me and when I turned to look back, a bomb had been dropped and somehow had decapitated him. (I don’t normally see gore in these dreams, but this time, I did.)
    The second one: We were on a ship, I don’t know what for… But him and his best friend Korum were sitting next to each other and they just started laughing at me. I didn’t understand, but I could feel that there was something wrong. I could feel that there was about to be alot of pain. When I asked him why he was laughing, he just shook his head. I kept questioning him but he was just laughing, and I was getting frustrated. They were laughing at me like I was stupid, like I should know why he was breaking up with me. Like I wasn’t enough. Or like it was because I was ugly. I don’t know. I just remember all these emotions and thoughts going through my head.
    The Third One: (This dream kinda picked up from where the second dream ended) Me, Korum, Brandon (my boyfriend I’ve been having nightmares about), and Brandons new gf all went out to a drive thru movie. It was night and we were sitting on a hill. Korum had asked me out and I had said yes because he was the closest thing that I would have to Brandon. And they always hang out so I knew I would always get to see him. Even if it hurt. Korum kept trying to pull me closer and I had to keep telling him I wasn’t ready. I just remember being sad seeing Brandon with someone else, but happy that I was at least near him. It broke me, but at least he was there.
    I know Brandon would never hurt me… We have been together for a year on July 15th and he has talked about proposing to me in December. He has only ever done 1 thing to break my trust but that was months and months ago. We have known each other for 6 years so I completely trust him.

  3. I’ve not had a dream in years, then the other night I had a dream of my fiancee,with an girl that was like his best friend but they really don’t talk any more,it’s been almost two years now I guess,she did try an text him about her car a few months ago and he told me she did,he didn’t answer her,any ways in my dream I walked in on her setting across his back given him a massage it upset me but I jus walked into the other room,then I heard moaning I went back to the room he was setting on her back massaging her,,but they both where fully dressed..i wake after I said to them f’ing he got up yelling at me no baby girl come here..what does all this mean,,we are always together,,24/7,, I have gained so weight sence we first got together an that really bothers me I do have to say,,thank you for any help you can give..

    • I think maybe you are insecure…. Or maybe you subconsciously dont trust him with exs just because with exs, comes emotions. We date people for a reason. We all have a detailed past with the people we have dated. So…. maybe her texting him has just brought up some fears???

  4. I had a dream about me going to this skate park ive never been to, this was a while ago and since then we’ve broken up and got back together it seems like eveytime a bad drem about a boyfriend I’ve got occurs i know we’ll break up anyways i went to the skate park where he was and i went to hug him but he pulled away and acted like he didnt know me then he started walking off i follwed yelling his name saying please wait anyways he walked up this hill and i was at the bottom of it had tears rushing down my face and he was also crying he said im sorry and walked off into the distance. I then woke up crying and a couple of days later we broke up the strange thing is that i moved away from him to another state as i was forced to so it was like reverse in my dream.

  5. I am constantly having dreams of my boyfriend. A couple of dreams I had were of him and I getting into a small tiff and he just starts walking away. I normally catch up to him. Last night I dreamt that we were hanging out and I can’t really remember the setting but there were a lot of stores around and we were walking. I remember his other two best friends, one a guy and one a girl walking with us. Who I get along great with in real life. But all of a sudden he was not in view and I thought maybe he was just ahead too far. So now I’m walking faster and faster to find him. I can’t find him and now I’m getting frazzled and worried and scared and start crying and running through door after door just to find him. I never find him. But then I woke up. In real life, we have had a few little fights recently and we always move past it. But the past couple times and due to nothing I have done but because of certain people in my family and situations he just keeps saying I’m done. I feel like deep inside he wants to leave sometimes because of stupid reasons. But I have been his rock, emotionally, physically, I support him and take care of him. And I’m trying to figure out what this dream means.

  6. My dream was that I was in a festival and i stumbled upon a group of guys and one of them looked exactly like my partner but it wasn’t him, we both looked at eachother like we were experiencing the same thing and then walked past. He seemed in my mind more “attractive” in a way.. and i felt like I had a lot of feelings for him.

  7. I had a dream that I was in my bathroom I heard my boyfriend say to his friend I need to break up with Amy, then before his friend came to me, I went to the room they were in and got my boyfriend to do it himself so he did but I asked him why he did it he said because I don’t want to see you hurt then I woke up wanting to cry because of this dream, so desired to look it up and all I could find was ( To dream that your boyfriend or girlfriend is breaking up with you, indicates your relationship is moving to the next level, in a way, it’s an end to something; you are leaving some past behind. At the same time, it is the start of something new or better) I really hope this doesn’t change anything in my relationship at the moment I’m really happy with who I’m with now so let’s hope that something better is going to happen in my current relationship.

  8. i had a dream that i went over my boyfriends home. then there was a knock at the door and one by one each and every coworker i know came in and started unloading groceries. my boss started cooking and another colleague started meal prepping. they said hey we may need you to go into work today.
    i was on the phone with a friend of mine who told me her husband may be cheating on her and she didn’t know what to do but she kept putting me on hold.
    with all the madness going on i noticed my boyfriend upset at the intrusion and the. he was gone.
    he then texted me and told me where he would be. i hung up on my friend because she kept putting my on hold and i grew tired of the elevator music. then i left the apartment.
    i circled and circled around what felt like 20 floors to find my car but couldn’t. i finally tracked down a parking attendant but suddenly i was at the mall and it wasn’t a parking attendant rather it was a holy man, i assume it was a holy man because he was dressed in all white, very tall and had a very authoritative voice. when i grabbed onto his sleeve he kinda pulled back in fear but when he saw my facial expression he quickly came to my aid.
    i asked him if he could please help me get out of this building because i had to see my boyfriend. He said go to the jewelry store, they have a back exit. so i ran away and on the way to the jewelry store there was a famous lady who was talking to people waiting in line for a photo.
    i ignored the crowd but someone reached out from the line and grabbed me. this person told me i should talk to the famous lady by i didn’t want to. somehow i was pushed to the front of the line and the crowd gone. i plopped down on the chair in such frustration because i felt like there were so many hurdles to get out of my boyfriend’s building. anyway this famous lady asks me how she could help….
    well… i asked her if she ever fell for the wrong guy? do you think it’s a bad idea to be with someone who doesn’t love you? she didn’t respond. she looked down at her notebook and suddenly i found myself back at my boyfriends apartment with my coworkers.
    Now i’m angry. I yell at them. every single one and ask then how the heck they found me. what the heck they’re doing here?
    they said they tracked me down and just wanted to hang out.
    meanwhile my boyfriend is texting me his location but i can never get to him. he keeps texting me to come pick him up because he’s drunk but i can never leave the building to go.

  9. have been having dreams about my boyfriend the first one I had was him breaking up with me and second one was the one he rejected and denied my pregnancy and in that dream my mum was surprised …please I really need the interpretation for that dream

  10. I had a dream that I was in the car with the boy I’m talking to. (We’ve been talking for months now and all his friends refer to us as boyfriend and girlfriend however it’s still not official.) anyway, we were in the car and stopped at this place to get gas and as he was pumping as my ex boyfriend appeared and hugged me and said hi to me and my current boy (they are friends because they go to school together and are in the same fraternity) and then he turned back to me and was like oh are you going out tonight and I was flirting back with him and remember trying to make myself look good for him. While my current boy was watching me do all this and keeping a close eye on my actions but just smiling at me. But I responded no we are going to my current boys family’s house for the holiday and then my ex responded oh I’m going to go meet up with so and so who happened to be another one of my ex boyfriends. And then the dream ended.

  11. Last night I had a dream about my boyfriend… I dreamt that I was standing behind my back door & that Elmer (my boyfriend) was standing in front of me & Sheila (my best friend) was standing in between us but next to us. So then Elmer & I looked in each others eyes, smiled, & giggled. & then we sorta leaned in so that we can kiss, but we couldn’t, so instead we put our foreheads together, & looked in each other’s eyes. We tried again, but we still couldn’t. Meanwhile all this is happening Sheila’s just there sorta like staring at us, & just standing there. I’m unsure of what this dream means, so if u can help me, I would really appreciate it

  12. I don’t think any of these go with my dream. I had a dream twice about my boyfriend he lives somewhere else and like in the dream we seen each other hugged he kissed me but then he had to go he grabbed my hand and then left. But in the first dream he left with his mom, in the second with his dad. They are not together. Can you please explain what this means??

  14. I had a dream about a really close friend on mine was laying on top of me. Of course we both didn’t mind each other in that dream. We seem very relax and comfortable. I feel like she wanted something in me, but in my dream I remember is to lay on top of my body. We are opposite gender as well and we were laying on some bed or couch and I was holding her body as it brush against mine. I really can’t find the answer for this dream.

  15. I had A dream about my boyfriend And my best friend Evelyn We were At some kind of Camp And btw Im 11 years old so Im not Sure if this could be True Or not so Then we were inside And next you know There making out And It looked Like They were having uh sex And They had clothes on And my boyfriend was on top of my best friend And i got scared so Then For some reason i smacked my best friends face For no reason And Then We came TO The next day The good part was i had different friends And They were all boys so probably in reallity i might get friends boy And date them They were REALLY nice i had alot of fun with them until My mom went down stairs And talked TO my boyfriends parents And he oovooed me And i didnt talk And he said It didnt look Like It was And i got freaking pissed so i críed And got mad so now Im scared if he will Like my best friend And i will have TO leave Her Either way The good thing Is That She hits him And She farted ONE time in front of him And sticked The middle finger And stuff and i asked him if he likes Her And he said no But Im still not sure

  16. I dreamed about my friend who happens to be a marine right now and my fiancée. In this dream, I dreamt that I had joined the Marines after getting married. And over time and going to war and being protected by my friend in battle I became close to him. My fiancé (husband in the dream)became distant and eventually filled for divorce and slowly I became more involved with my friend.

  17. I never see my boyfriend in my dreams. Very rarely it does happen, but I seem to forget who he is. I try hard to remember about him ending up in shreds of broken memories.
    Of all the people I know, this happens only with my boyfriend.
    Does that mean I don’t love him enough?

  18. I had a dream one minute I was with my boyfriend and family and then I was at my house but no one was in then my ex walks in my bedroom and i sleep with him but cried in my dream and instantly felt sick.

      It means that you must protect your relationship maybe some other girl is trying to separate you from your boyfriend

  23. I had a dream about my Fiance. It was really blissful. My fiance and I were on a picnick with someone. My fiance was sitting on the ground and against the tree, and I was sitting in between his legs. It was perfect weather and sitting there I felt complete bliss. It’s crazy how you can actually feel emotion, in your dream but this is truly the most blissful I have ever felt. I felt completely relaxed and all was right in the world. Also before this scene in my dream I was dreaming that my mom found love liked she has always wished. It was one of the best dreams I’ve have ever had. Sitting with the love of my life, and my mom finding true love.
