Dreaming about love and feelings of love can have a significant impact on us when we are awake. The person, place, and situation surrounding your dream will all determine what your love dream really means.
Dreaming about Love
For most people, Love dreams include someone that you know in your waking life. This could be your partner, someone you are in love with, or a family member or someone that you hold dear to your heart. The act of love in a dream, often signifies that you care about someone or something about that person.
If you find yourself lonely in your waking life, this dream could be a wish-fulfillment dream. Sometimes the act of being in love in your dream can represent a longing to find happiness in your own life.
Perhaps you need to make an effort to step out of your comfort zone and take a risk at love. To be in love with someone is to allow yourself to be vulnerable and open. If you have been hurt in the past, it is hard opening back up and letting down your guard again.
Dreaming of being in love is common when we enter a new relationship and experience falling in love again in real life. If you spend countless hours during your waking day thinking about your partner, you are likely to have those thoughts leak into your unconscious mind and visit you in your dreams. There is a broad range of emotions that we experience when we dream about someone we care about.
