Do You Know What Your Dream Symbols Are?

Dreams can tell us what's happened, what's happening, and what is going to happen. They connect us to the other side and offer us insight that we couldn't get anywhere else.

Your dreams will never lie to you as long as you know how to listen to them!

I've been studying my dreams since I was young and I've gotten pretty good at lucid dreaming, meaning I can 'wake' myself up in a dream and tell myself that it's a dream and then do what I want - fly, see an old friend, or ask an important question. It's a huge part of my excitement for going to sleep at night!

Every morning I remember my dreams and try to figure out if they meant something important, or if they were just random and fun little movies for the night.

Sometimes my dreams offer me the best relationship advice or personal advice that I could ever ask for.

We've all heard of great stories about dreams like Albert Einstein whose theory of relativity was inspired by a dream...that's how powerful dreams really are! You just need to know how to interpret the symbols in your dreams to understand what they mean for you.

Challenge Yourself To Start A Dream Journal And Interpret Your Own Dreams

If you really want to understand your dreams, then you need to be able to interpret them for yourself. No one else has the insight into your life, your dream symbols, and your fears, worries, and thoughts that you do, so you are the only one who can really understand your dreams. Take a 30-day dream journal challenge and see how good you can become at interpreting your own dreams.

Your Dream Interpretations Are Unique To YOU

Everyone looks at certain symbols in dreams and associates something different to them. We do not all view things in the same way.

For example, you might associate the lake with peace while your friend associates it with partying. So when YOU dream of the lake, it most likely represents peace in your life whether you are striving for it or currently receiving it. In short, the lake is your symbol for peace.

Sit back and think about what you associate certain things with. Don't overthink it! Just write down what comes to mind first.

For instance, I would associate the following things as follows:

  • Darkness = calm
  • Water = Peace
  • Parent's home = conflict or turmoil
  • Grandpa's home = comfort
  • Red = love


When you are interpreting your dreams, keep all of your own personal dream symbols in mind. Remember the truth will resonate with you when you see or hear it.

Following are some general interpretations in regards to feelings, sights, and emotions regarding relationship related dreams.

Common Dreams and Interpretations

Sometimes we have dreams about things regarding relationships and we take them a face value - but a lot of the time they are really pointing to some other area of your life.

Dreams Regarding Marriage

Bride - To dream of being a bride, whether it's yourself or someone else, means you are coming into an inheritance.

Man Kissing A Bride - This can mean a joyous get-together between family and friends.

Elopement - This may mean unfavorable events that will or are already occurring in your life.

Partner eloping with someone else - Watch out! You may soon learn about your partner being unfaithful. Alternatively, this could mean you have insecurities or questions about your relationship.

Marriage License - You may make a bad alliance that ends in you being hurt or humiliated.

Dreams With Big Emotions

Happiness - This may be pointing out the obvious but this probably means being happy now or in the near future.

Ecstasy - You will have a visit from a long absent friend.

Joy - To dream of feeling good means there will be harmony among all your friends.

Pleasure - If you dream of gratification you will have many financial and personal gains of enjoyment.

Cheerful - This means that joyous events and activities will soon prove profitable.

Delight - This is letting you know that your life is going well or going to be well soon. Everything is going work out.

Common Dream Symbols Regarding Relationships

There are some very common dreams that we all have. Chances are you have had one or more of these things in your dreams at some time or another. Remember your symbols and listen to your inner self when trying to interpret your dreams. Take into account colors, feelings, time of day, who is there, and everything else when you are trying to interpret your dreams.

Baby - It may mean that an idea or thought is growing and getting ready to be born. An obvious interpretation could be an impending birth. It can also bring to your attention a dependent behavior or need. If the baby is alone it can represent your independence.

Breasts - Of course they may represent sexual desire. It can also represent becoming a mother, need for nurturing, or if you are running around naked, it could mean a fear of exposure.

Kissing - This may suggest romantic involvement. It can also be a symbol of you and someone making up or a reconciliation coming about. It could also mean kissing the past goodbye. Married people or couples kissing means everything is going smoothly and happily and full of harmony. What time of day is it? If it is during the dark it may represent danger or an inappropriate situation. If it's sunny out it may represent good intentions and well meaning.

Pregnancy - It could indicate a desire for a child or not knowing that you are pregnant - but I dream of this a lot and I don't want children! It could also mean something new beginning or coming into your life. Maybe an idea or thought that is getting ready to come out.

Veil - If you are walking around with a veil over your face it may not just be an upcoming marriage. It may mean that you are looking at something through the veil or someone looking at you that way.

Adultery - This can signify your sexual urges and desires that are wanting to come out. It can also indicate disloyalty from your subconscious. You may soon find yourself or already be finding yourself in something shady or disloyal. It probably won't end well.

If your partner is cheating on you it may being showing you your insecurities and your fear of being dumped. It may symbol your feelings of your partner being less attentive and 'there' in the relationship. It may also be your guilt coming out and show you that you are not measuring up to the expectations of others.

Are you dreaming about sleeping with your spouse's friend? This doesn't necessarily mean you want to cheat with them. It may mean that you are feeling neglected by your spouse.

Cheating - Are you dreaming of cheating on something or someone. This may mean you have compromised your beliefs or integrity and/or not making the most of your time and your energy and putting it towards bad decisions and activities. Taking it literally it can bring to life your sexual passion and exploring areas of your sexuality.

To dream that you are cheating at a game, suggests that you are not being honest with yourself.

Lovers - A lover appearing in your dream show your acceptance, self-worth, and recognition of your true value. It may also indicate integration of both your masculine and feminine traits meaning you are feeling complete or whole. You may also dream of your 'dream person' which may indicate that your relationship is not satisfactory to you or it is unfulfilling.

To dream of an ex can symbolize unfinished or unresolved issues that relate to that person. I think we've all dreamt that at times. This may happen when you are in a good relationship and it's waking up your inner issues and memories.

Sex - This may mean you are missing aspects of the person you are having sex with and you want to incorporate them into your own character. It also may just be your desires way of telling you that it's been a long time since you've had sex. If you are trying to find a place to get it on then the dream may be represent your search for a certain intimacy and closeness that you can't find.

Are you having sex with a well known public figure? It indicates your drive to be successful. What do they represent to you? For instance having sex with Angelina Jolie may mean you want to help other people and have the drive to do it.

To dream that you are having sex with an ex may just be showing you that you have some hesitation about getting into a new relationship or situation. Normal!

If you are heterosexual and you dream that you are having sex with someone of the same sex don't spend all day thinking about it. It may just be an expression of being more comfortable with yourself and letting others know you do not affect them.

Do You Meditate?

Do You Meditate? Meditation Can Help You Interpret Your Dreams

Meditation is simply about being in a relaxed state. In short, you calm your mind (usually into an alpha state) during meditation, just as you do before you go to bed or when you daydream or when you are really relaxed sitting in front of the ocean - or wherever else your mind naturally calms down. Meditation has so many benefits for your health, but we are talking about dreams here - right?

If you want to interpret your own dreams, then meditation can help you do that. Why? Meditation gives you more self-awareness and allows you to find answers that you cannot find when your mind is buzzing and going from one thought to the next.

If you meditate in the morning on your dreams instead of instantly jumping out of bed to get ready for your day, you will have a much easier time remembering and interpreting your dreams.

Moreover, if you meditate before bed, you can focus your attention on things you want to dream about or find answers to - and you will have an easier time influencing your dreams.

Dreams have the power to give you answers, help you sort through issues, and give you insight into your future - and meditation has the power to connect you to your dreams and help you understand them.

You Are The Only One Who Can Really Interpret Your Love Dreams

Remember that whatever resonates as the truth to you is what your dream means.

I get a lot of people asking me what their love dreams mean but, as we discussed, certain symbols mean different things to different people. For instance, darkness for me is calming whereas it might be depressing or scary to you.

I can give you my interpretation of your dream and even let my tarot cards guide you towards a theme or situation, but I don't know all the details of YOU and your life, which is important for interpreting dreams. inside, you know exactly what your dream meant - you are the one who had it! So, you need to learn how to interpret them yourself.

We are all built with an inner guidance system. Meditation is a great tool to help you get access to that inner guidance system. The information is in you, in your cells, waiting for you to find it - so start looking inward instead of outward.

Happy Dreaming!

      @Adriana - It sounds like a worry dream.

      It starts out great. You are enjoying yourselves, spending time with your families. But then it takes a turn and you are a little more relaxed with your ex. (Not sure if there were others emotions in that part of the dream, but they are worth noting.) Then the worst thing happens, his ex calls and says she is pregnant with I'm assuming his child.

      You may be worried that things are going to stay good in your relationship. Or, you may be already seeing a decline in some way and that's why you've had the dream.

      I would fix any issues you are having and talk to him, especially because his is a very straight forward guy.

      @Elen - The dream probably has more to do with your feelings for him than anything. So, instead of admitting that he doesn't want to be with you, the story is that he didn't want to look into your eyes - for whatever reason - and he's sad about the breakup. When in reality he could be really happy about the breakup and happy with his new girlfriend.

      Arguing does denote intense feelings, one way or the other - hate or love. But, if it's been a year and he's moved on, then there's a good chance that it wasn't just because he was hurt and couldn't look you in the eyes.

      And the real life situation..He currently has a gf now and we broke up 1 year ago and he would always argue with me like crazy after we broke up, but im still in love with him.

      @Adriana - It could mean that he feels like you are insecure with your body. Maybe it's a turn off for him or maybe he just has to deal with your insecurity all the time and is now dreaming about it.

      If you are not an insecure person, then it could mean that he's superficial and will make you insecure down the road.

      @Katelynnlingle - Well, it seems like you either think there is something wrong with your relationship or you think that someone else thinks there is something wrong with your relationship. Anger or immaturity might be an issue considering he threw a fit in the dream.

      I had a dream that I was with my son, my Fianceé, and his son at an at home daycare we we're checking out. My Fianceé throws a fit then storms out slamming the door. Then, the attractive husband of the care giver (which has a similar image of my fiancee, in a fashion sense) tells me that I'm not in a good relationship, then I wake up. What does this mean?

      There is this girl who I knew and now realize that I loved her. I never got in touch with her, but a am trying. Let's call her Sara. I had a dream that Sara and my ex, but now close friend, are knocking on my door while I'm sleeping. I wake up and open the window while staring at Sara with goo goo eyes while she stares at me the same way. Because I missed her so much, I run up to her and kiss her as hard as I can. Somehow we end up walking all around town kissing each other. As we move around town, my mind drifts off to a chess piece of me and Sara kissing moving around the corners of the board as the rook would. My mind then drifts back to us kissing. What does this dream mean?

      @MissyBean - You could be dreaming about your future love. I had a dream about being in passionate love when I was younger, and a few years later I realized that I was with the man in my dreams.

      It could also just mean that you are feeling a lot of love and happiness in your life and you are playing that out in your dreams.

      Whatever it is, it's a good thing!

      @Kiara - My first thought is that maybe it's a good thing your crush might not be into you. Maybe you know he's not right for you on some level, so when he tells you that the is propose to someone else, you can let go of your crush and celebrate that you dodged that bullet.

      Hi Kari, thank you for the reply... We have a wonderful "connection" and are very affectionate, so that is not a challenge. He says he's happy and recently put a post about being together over 5 years now..

    • Relationshipc profile imageAUTHOR

      Kari 

      4 weeks ago from Alberta, Canada

      @Tessarose49 - It could be either, but it's probably what you think.

      If you have a good relationship, and there are no signs that he is unhappy, then it's probably just a concern he's having.

      When my husband and I are not intimate for a while, I always dream about him wanting to leave me and not calling me or acknowledging me. He's not unhappy in the relationship - we have a great relationship - but the dream represents my feeling of being distant. Once we are intimate, the bad dreams go away.

      So, you may also want to take a look at your relationship and any feelings he may have of not being connected or validated by you.

      Have been living with my boyfriend for 5 years. He had a dream that I left him and he was upset in the dream that I didn't even call him. There was also a glass poodle in the dream. My take is he is concerned I will leave him and he was upset I didn't call him. Others on his social media are saying that it means he is unhappy and he is wanting a change. Thoughts?

      @Liz - It's probably just your fear that he doesn't like you or is not interested in you that way. Because nothing is set in stone between you two, it's natural that you are not sure what's going to happen and you would dream about all the 'what if' scenarios.

      @Liz - Sorry for your loss. Purple is a color relating to the spiritual. There are many people, including me, who believe that butterflies in your path are a sign of loved ones acknowledging you. So, your dream may have been your connection to your parents who have passed on. Because they were glowing, it may be a connection that is just starting to turn on or it may be a connection that is bright and totally turned on.

      Also, because you were walking down a small mountain and heading into the dark, the dream could be a message from your parents that they will be there with you in the dark times lighting up your footpath and helping you find your way.

      @Simone - It could mean you are feeling guilty about something. Maybe you are doing something that your husband wouldn't totally approve of.

      It could also mean that you are worried about something. Maybe life has taken a turn for the worse and your husband is going to react to it.

      Also, it could mean your husband is being weird about something else. For instance, maybe he's questioning your beliefs or habits - even in a small way - and that's what's setting off your dream.

      Whatever relates to you is probably the most likely explanation of the dream.

      @CJ - If things are going well with your ex, then it was likely a representation of that.

      If things aren't going well, then the dream may be expressing a desire to get along with your ex and have that type of acceptance and peace in your relationship.

      @Clair - I would think that you feel comfortable with him and that's why he would be saying I love you in a dream. It's something that easily slips out when we are feeling good about the other person, so that would be my guess.

      Although, maybe he did say it to you?

      I currently have a friends with benefits relationship with a guy I used to date. We both decided that he wasn’t ready for a relationship and I didn’t want one but we still liked and enjoy each other and settled for this.

      He and I were in bed asleep when I woke up to my alarm going off. I woke up and switched it off and closed my eyes. I felt like I was asleep but awake at the same time. I feel like I was aware of the outside world. I turned around and looked at him and he just woke up as well and smiled at me. Just as my eyes started closing he said that he loves me. In a sleepy state I nearly said it back but stopped myself after “I love-“ thinking, ?? I don’t love him?? And after that thought I wasn’t aware of the outside world and fell into deep sleep.

      The thing is I don’t know if it was a dream or not, I think it is because he would never say those words but at the same time it seemed so real. If it was a dream, what would that mean?

      Thank you

      @Britney - Did they give you any signs that they might be together? If not, it's probably just your fear causing you to dream about that. If you haven't heard from both of them, then one assumption would be that they might be together, which explains the dream.

      Don't freak out. Just keep trying to contact your sister. Once you know what's happening you will feel better, so go to her house or get someone else to go if that would make you feel better.

      And, if they gave you signs that they may be together, then you may be dreaming about what's happening. But, it's more than likely about your fears and concerns.

      @Sabrina - It could be a symbol for your breakup. You see him, put effort into sitting beside him, and he acknowledges you but doesn't give you what you want, so you get up and he's shocked that even though he didn't give you what you want, you got up and left. Also, when we love someone so much, it's natural to hope that our ex would get up and look for us - want us - so we make ourselves visible.

      I'm assuming it's just a symbol for what happened and how you felt.

      I had a dream of my ex. We were together for 13 years which ended 5 years ago. I have never loved anyone the way that I loved him and he broke my heart very bad.

      In my dream I saw him sitting in a crowded place and there was an empty chair beside him, So, I went and sat beside him. He acknowledged me when I sat down but didn't say anything after.

      Then I got up and he looked shocked and I walked away.

      I tried to find another area to go so he would find me if he did look for me.

      @Tumi-Rox - Did anything happen with your crush before the dream? Something promising or positive? That could provoke the dream.

      Otherwise, it sounds like you are just fantasizing about being with him - intimate, comfortable, getting to know each other, and sharing some personal things with each other. That's a normal thing to fantasize about with a crush, so it makes sense.

      Have you had any real signs outside of your dreams that tell you she doesn't want you around? If not, then you are simply reading into your fear or worry and making it a reality when it might not be.

      Remember, your dreams are usually just an indication of your feelings. So if you have doubts, those doubts would play out in your dream. It doesn't mean that she really wants you to leave her alone. It just means that you are worried that she does.

      But, if she's giving you signs in real life, then your dream may be a heads up to how she feels. Only you know if she's actually giving you signs or not in your waking life.

      On the 14th August 2018 around 3h10am, I had a dream that my crush and I had our first kiss. We were sitting very comfortably at a pause area at work. He started by taking my hand and lightly pinching my my nipple. In the dream we were in school uniform. We both had grey pants and white shirts. He told me in the dream that he smokes because of stress and I was very surprised that he smokes as I've always viewed him as this perfect person. I also remember telling him in the dream that I have started praying over a piece of land where I'm about to buy property, but don't remember his response to that. I was very happy in the dream and it all felt so right.

      I had a dream about a girl i like. Her name is Alice. We spent rather a lot of time together, although I have not seen her for a week now. I did not tell her how i felt to avoid an awkward situation.

      The dream was set at a dance and at first she was not in the dream. I was alone on the dancefloor, which makes sense as i have no significant other to dance with.

      I walked out into the hallway, where she and a group of people I didn't know were. Someone said to me that she was trying to move away from me. She then called out from afar, 'just leave me alone'. Although she was speaking, the voice wasn't quite like hers in reality. Then I woke up feeling very sad.

      The location of a dance, I think refers to when i tried to teach her ballroom dancing. This was our longest physical contact.

      While there was no romantic relationship, I was sure we were good friends, now I am doubting that. We spent some good time together, with some good conversations. I made her laugh a few times as she did I.

      I've rambled on for a while, but hopefully have provided enough context to make some sense of this mess.

      @Jordon - Please use punctuation when you write to someone else... even online. It's hard to read without punctuation.

      It could be possible that you think they would be a good match in a different life - one where you are not with her.

      Or, it could be that you feel like they are in a world of their own when they are together and you don't understand it. Maybe they have some big things in common.

      This morning i had a dream about a girl i like. She has been on my mind a lot recently and I last saw her a week ago.

      The dream included me being in attendance of a dance that had been organised by a group of friends. I was on my own at this dance, as i would expect, having no gf. I went out into the hallway near the exit, and she was out there, not dancing.

      Someone else, who i dont know, saud to me that she was trying to 'drag away from me' in those exact words. Ive never known anyone to speak like that so it is a bit strange. She then said, from across the room, 'just go away'. I then woke up feeling very sad.

      The location of our meeting makes sense to me, as the longest physical contact we had, was when i tried to teach ballroom dancing to her one evening after we had spent time looking at the clouds

      I didnt tell her how i felt, for fear of making our interactions awkward, but i was happy in the knowledge that we were at least friends. We had spemt a good amount of time together and had some good conversations, during which she made no signals that she didnt like me or wanted me to go away. I made her laugh a few times as she did I. I also upset her a little bit once or twice, through careless speech, but i apologised profusely for this. One thing in particular was that i corrected her grammar, twice, which she did not take kindly to.

      What could this mean?

      @Cruz - I think your dream is just a fantasy. If you are happily married, then it's probably just a fantasy about something you never experienced. Especially because you still have a crush on this woman. Since you are happily married, you wouldn't go after this woman in real life, so your dreams offers you a space to do so without worry or repercussions.

      @Anthony - sorry for the delay.

      I'm willing to bet that you do like her on some level. That's why you are dreaming about her. She's unfinished business, the one that got away, or an experience that you wish you would have had.

      You probably had the dream because you either saw her or heard about her, or because you are thinking about a relationship with a girl in general.

      I keep having dreams about being in love with someone but at the same time, I'm not allowed to be with them in the dream. One of the two that I more clearly remember was that I was in love with a guy except I wasn't allowed to even love him. And now in the other dream that I had last night, it was about a girl who I loved but it's like I wasn't allowed to let anyone know, including her. I've had other dreams like this but I don't know why. If anyone can interpret these dreams, that'd be much appreciated.

      @kate - I think you mean that you dreamt there is two men who want you?

      It could be because you are feeling desirable right now. Maybe your confidence is high and you are feeling like you have a lot to offer the people around you, and they know it.

      It could also mean that you have a big decision to make. It doesn't necessarily have to do with two men. It could be anything where there are two attractive choices - work, school, vacation, etc.

      @Anna - You may need to confess all of it.

      The only way he can truly know how you feel is to tell him. And, him being honest with you is the only way you can truly know how he feels.

      I wouldn't play any games. I would let him know that you have feelings for him and that you can't go on the way you are going.

      Tell him that you need to know what he's thinking and communicate better with him because you care about him.

      If he's not willing to do that, there's not much you can do.

      You can either stay in the situation, which will tell him that he can keep doing what he wants to do.

      Or, you can leave the relationship, which will tell him that you mean business and that you are not willing to keep going on the way you two are going on.

      Also, if he does communicate, take what he says at face value. Don't try to read anything into it and make it more than it is. Don't try to make him confess something you want him to confess. If he tells you how he feels, then accept it as truth and make your decisions based off his truth.

      Maybe I'm not supposed to ask about advice on this website, but I really need some. So this same boy is really pissing me off. I mean it's clear that he is giving me mixed signals but I want him to either treat me like a sister or confess to me about his feelings. Because sometimes he even ignores me and when I get angry he tells me that if he didn't want to talk to me he wouldn't but he does. He tells me that when he ignored then that means he is busy but I have a gut feeling that he does that because he knows that we always fight but then both of us stick around. I want to change that. What can I do without confessing about all of this to expose him or put him in a situation where he has to speak?

      Hi! I dreamt that they boy that I love told me he loved and we got together. In real life we are just friends because he told me that, but his actions speak something different. He is cold as a person and does not open up about his emotions but every time I want to pull a way he tells me "no", and when I ask why he answers me "i cant answer that question". In school I even see him looking at me. When we text, there comes a time where he does weird things from sending me a song about love, telling me goodnight with a heart (which he never uses) to being cold again but not wanting to let go. I'm just confused. Is there a chance that the dream is real?

      @Purnima - I'm assuming you meant that you had a dream that your partner cheated on you with 'his' best friend because you mention that you are not in a good relationship with 'him'.

      Anyway, it just sounds like you are worried about what he's doing. It sounds like you are not together, though you are not very clear about that, but if you want him to come back, he must be gone. In that case, are you broken up? That may be a huge cause of you worrying about him being with someone else. And, like all of us, we worry about the person we love finding love somewhere else, especially during times of trouble. So it just makes sense that you would dream about him cheating with his best friend - that would be a fear, even if it's not likely to happen.

      Did you break up with someone? You could be dreaming about your ex because he seems like a better fit for you.

      Did you find love? Are you interested in someone? Is your family happy for you for some reason? You need to explain more.

      @VividDreamer - It sounds like the theme is pretty much being betrayed right in front of you. And, I'm not sure how you reacted the first two times, but in the last dream you weren't happy and you made it known.

      So, do you feel like you are being betrayed in your waking life? It doesn't have to be in your relationship, it could be with family, friends, coworkers, etc.

      Also, because you are dreaming about your ex best friend, it could simply be about her. Maybe you saw her recently (in person or on social media) or you heard about her or you just thought about her, and you are dreaming about her and the way you feel about her. Your boyfriend is a symbol - maybe trust, love, or support.

      In short, did you feel betrayed by her? Still do? If yes, then that might be what it is.

      At the moment I keep having dreams about my boyfriend and my ex best friend being romantically involved. I have no reason to believe my boyfriend as unfaithful. What gets me about the dream is in waking life these two do not know each other, none of them involve sex explicitly and the three dreams (over the last week) have all been different, 1st was them meeting, 2nd was me walking in on them naked together and the 3rd was that my ex best friend came to a romantic meal with me and my partner but then they started being romantic infront of me, which ended up me throwing food over their heads. Literally I am at a loss, what could these dreams mean?

      @Jennifer - I have a friend who still dreams about the one that got away twenty years after the fact.

      When you feel like someone could have played a bigger part in your life, it's hard to let that go. So, it's only natural that you would still dream about them and the situation being different than it is.

      Sometimes when my friend is stressed or unhappy, she dreams about him because it's a symbol of something that she thinks may have made her happy. But she can't know that for sure, and neither can you.

      Maybe he did you a favor by moving on. Maybe your relationship would have been bad. I think once you let go of the 'the one that got away' mentality towards him, you won't find yourself dreaming about him and being so emotional about it if you do.

      I'm currently in a happy relationship.

      However, there's the one that got away, and not because of me. He didn't chose to take it further. He's the only man who's ever not wanted "more" with me.

      In my dream I was at a party at his house. I was getting evil looks from his sister. Finally I asked what was wrong and she told me she was angry that I broke her brothers heart. I looked at him and said "What does she mean? I wanted a relationship with you, I wanted more, you are the one who left things alone and let it die out, and when I told you I was going to move on because I felt as tho you didn't want a relationship with me you said you didn't blame me and that you would do the same (it was clear he didn't want anything serious with me). He told me I took it wrong, that he loved me and always wanted me. I woke up feeling confused, angry, and shocked that he was even on my mind because I am in a very happy relationship now and haven't spoken to the man I dreamed of in over a year!

      @ Maria - There's a couple possibilities. Maybe you are lacking trust with him or just feeling suspicious of something in general, and that feeling is translating into your dream.

      If you've been noticing signs that something is wrong - real signs like lying or growing distant - then that's another reason for the dream.

      You could also just be feeling like he's not validating your feelings as much as you would like him to, since that was a part of the dream.

      Unless you've seen signs, I would assume it has more to do with you and your feelings than him actually cheating on you.
