Friend Dream Meaning and Interpretations


Friend Dream Symbol – First of all, dreams involving your friends are very common and can be interpreted in many ways. They could symbolize emotions and fears you have about that person in the waking hours or they may also be your mind projecting parts of yourself onto an image of your friend so you have an easier time dealing with a problem.

In other words, your dream friend may represent your alter ego or the part of yourself that you keep hidden in your waking life. Ask yourself, what is your friend doing in your dream that you may be repressing in life?

Dreaming about a friend is a very positive omen. If, of course, that friend meets misfortune in your dream, then you should warn them in real life so to watch out for such things. Friends are our greatest and most loyal supporters. They are not always who we think of as friends.

In fact, our best friends might be those who we wouldn’t normally associate with. Because of this, you should be very careful with this particular dream, because it might mean something different than you would have originally thought. If you dream of a pleasant situation with one of your friends it is a sure sign that you should spend time with them soon.

    I had a dream of my 2nd grade best friend. We’re the same age right now but in this dream I was the same age I am right now- and she was in the form of a 2nd grader- like she was just a little girl. I was walking this path/sidewalk and then i see her and then I walk up to her and I instantly take her hand and feel the need to protect/take care of her- I dunno what this means I just found it a bit odd…

  5. I keep having dreams that make no sense, why they would happen in real life, but they could. They keep coming along with one guy in my class. Last night, I had a dream he and someone else from my class were trying to jokingly touch my butt. One of them said as I was pushing him arm away that I don’t look strong but I am. I eventually get to my house (the dream started just outside my house on the road) and I opened the door, there my family was, my mom told me to be quiet, and the two guys were gone from my steps. I said “sAvE mE” in that tone waving my arms in the air, then woke up. Still confused.

At first I didn’t recognise her and she didn’t recognise me but when we did I ran away.

  15. I haven’t dreamed of my best friend for a while. We had an argument 4months ago. In this dream I am either a producer or know the TV crew. I was talking to them while watching the screen. I had mentioned the name of my best friend and said she would like the program. In that instant she shows up to talk with the TV crew asking questions. At the point I tell the camera man that’s my friend I was talking about. The cameraman goes to her and says your friend is watching you do you want to say something? She looks surprised and sad, she then talks to the cameramen headphones and says my name with the following: how can you say we are friends when we are distant and walk away.

  16. I’ve had three dreams in the last week and am feeling uneasy as I’ve never dreamt about friends before and all three dreams involve the same collective group of friends. The first dream showed me that a friend had lied to me about her whereabout, but I’ve seen her since and got no sense of hostility, the second dream the friend was shouting at me, then she said sorry as I’d done nothing wrong (in the dream, I’d thrown a ball for her dog and it had come back covered in mud and she’s blamed me!). Then last night, in the same dream but with all the people in, and more (basically a wider group who hang out togther), I’d walked into a restaurant to see them all dining and remember feeling awkward that my husband and I weren’t invited. Instead of walking out and being nice, I recall snatching my coat off a chair and being clearly angry. Something is going on for me to have three dreams in a week and I feel very uneasy…can you please please?

  17. I dreamed just now about my girl bestfriend being a half zombie, she is a zombie physically but she is mentally okay then someone wants to kill her then when her dad already hid her, i locked the other door and tried to be calm but the person who wants to kill my friend which is my former biology teacher opened the door and came in but i cant see her but i can hear her voice. What does it mean?

  18. Erik Lopez on

    Well I dreamed of my best friend which is a girl and she was having a good time with her new girlfriend while her xgirlfriend looked at them and got mad and argued with my friend about her new girl. After that I had some kind of trouble with some people and my cell phone broker and I couldn’t contact my best friend because she was waiting for me so we can leave that place where we where it was like a cofeteria to a church…after that I did find her but I awoke.

  19. I had already 2 dreams of my ex best friend, I actually don’t know if we could be friends again but there’s no fighting we just didn’t tak to each other then i had a dream of spending good times with her and travelling does this mean something? Is there hope that I could still be friends with her again?

    • I have a friend who was my best friend for years. Savannah. Beautiful girl, sweet, fun, awesome. I treated her like a sister. She was everything to me. When we started middle school, she completely cut me of. Recently I’ve seen her in the halls a lot and dream about her almost every night. I cry myself to sleep and then dream about the last thing she said to me before she cut me off…”Sorry, I’m too busy.” Does this mean anything? I’m crying in my bed right now just begging myself not to go to sleep for fear I’ll dream about her again.
