A boyfriend can be a friend, enemy, lover, companion, or 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 accordingly.

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.

We went to somewhere near the beach and he carried me going to the beach but the water is not that deep. Only knee level. And i was so happy and enjoying with him but i was a little scared about him running to the water while hes carrying me.and he found a pair of slippers in the middle of the beach,he wore it and we went back to our hotel.when i was trying lay down beside him, his face is different, my boyfriend is 40 and when i saw his face hes like 20’s. And really different. I dont know the person anymore and i asked him, i noticed you look younger and your face isnt look like my boyfriend anymore. And i am looking everywhere to my boyfriend and i was scared amd i am missing him sp badly and i am crying and hurt. And one woman whos working in the hotel i asked her if she saw my boyfriend, and she told me that ohhh! Theres a black magic happening now, someone took your boyfriend and you cant go easily there because theyre not in earth right now, before you go there you have to give him 350,000. And i was crying because i lost my man and i couldnt find him. Just waiting and gets to the point that im impatient.

  18. Elizabeth was here lol on

    I dreamed that I was cheating on a rocker kid on “The Voice: The Best of Hard Rock in Blind Auditions Worldwide” at 9:15 of the video on youtube. I was cheating on him with my husband from the Waking Life. I thought how weird that had to be. The feelings for my husband in my dreams we’re hot of course but I was caught in action with my husband and I have no idea what in the world these dream means. I mean there we’re more to the story but the dream before was fuzzy but I remember that bits in pieces. I tried to look it up but that’s pretty difficult since it don’t match a cheating dream dictionary of most. Post me if you have an ideal? 😀

  19. Estephania Martinez on

    I had a dream where my boyfriend came over and you know I didn’t tell anyone in my fam because they would rat me out, so throughout the dream it was him my boyfriend but then towards the end i was kissing some girl and I was so confused, so then I tried kicking her out because well she wasn’t my boyfriend and then it switched to this other girl and all she said was “I want to go suck some dick.” And left to my neighbors house,, maybe it’s just a dream but it still freaks me out that I was kissing a girl in the dream :/

  20. I had a dream that my boyfriend walked in on me with another guy and he shot the guy and ran away then the police came but I denied that it was him

  21. I had a dream that my boyfriend for almost a year now broke up with me to sleep with another girl got me back and then cheated on me with the same redheaded girl. It’s a repetitive dream and I wake up in tears I live with him also.
