One of the most common nightmares that people have is a dream about running away from a man.

#4. Ex Boyfriend/Girlfriend Dreams
Another common user submitted dream is the ex boyfriend dream. Whether or not people are in a relationship or not, doesn’t seem to change the fact that a lot of dreamers are dreaming about their ex. Dreaming about an ex doesn’t mean you are still in love with them (although it could mean that), it usually means that you miss a certain characteristic from that ex that you don’t have in your life. For example, maybe your ex was a very caring person and your new partner doesn’t have the same caring nature.
#5. Dreaming of Animals
Dreaming about your pet can signify the bond that you have with that animal and the emotions you feel. Usually these dreams are happy dreams and represent the good times in your life. Animal dreams can represent basic instincts and emotions that we have inside. Dogs in our dream represent friendship and loyalty and the deep connection we have with people we love. If you hear your dog barking in the dream it can represent gossip and people talking about you.
#6. People From Your Past
Another common dream that people have is about people from the past who are no longer alive. The bonds that we have with loved ones who die never leave us, even if that person is gone from our lives. Dreaming about people from the past can be necessary to the healing process. These dreams can help someone cope with the loss of an influential person in their lives. Your interactions in your dream will help you determine what it means to you.
#7. Falling in Dreams
Falling dreams can either by minor falls or falling off of a building. Sometimes we might have embarrassing moments in our dream where we fall down in front of people we know and other times these dreams can represent nightmares of falling to our death. Your reactions to the fall will often help you determine what the dream can mean to you. If you are falling down a set of stairs, it can represent obstacles that are preventing you from achieving more in your life.

Dreaming about having a baby is another popular dream that many women experience. These dreams usually can occur if someone is in a relationship and looking for more or it can occur if you haven’t been practicing safe sex in the bedroom.

#9. Dreaming of Flying
Have you ever dreamed about being weightless and flying in the clouds? The journey you take in your flying dream will often determine what it means to you. For example, if you are flying away from something it might mean that you are trying to escape something in your waking life. Conversely, if you are flying towards something, it can represent you moving towards your goals in life.
#10. Dreaming about Teeth
If you haven’t lost a tooth in your dream, you haven’t been dreaming long enough. Teeth dreams can represent fear of losing something in our lives, or if you want to use a Freudian interpretation it can represent sexual repression and a desire to be nurtured in our lives.

Bonus: Dream within a Dream
Have you ever had a dream about being inside of a dream? Every dreamer has experienced this dream at some point in time. False awakening dreams are dreams where you think you wake up, but you are still dreaming in the bed. Lucid dreaming is when you are aware that you are in a dream and can control your actions in the dream. These dreams are two very common themes that many dreamers experience.
Dreams can have a huge impact on our emotional state when we awake from the dream. If you dreamed that your boyfriend was cheating on you, those feelings and emotions will feel real when you awake from the dream. When it comes to interpreting dreams, it is important to avoid trying to literal interpretations. You need to find the hidden meanings inside your dream that are trying to speak to you.
If your boyfriend cheated on you in your dream, it doesn’t mean that he is a lying cheat in real life. Sometimes dreams will represent your worst fears and things that are not true, so you can deal with those fears and confront them.
