What does it mean if I had a dream about someone I used to like?

Asked by zicron (117points) September 8th, 2012

I had the dream last night, we were watching a movie laying down. He lifted me up and started hugging me. There was a blank space in my memory, then we were holding hands walking in a garden. Right before he kissed me, I woke up. What does this mean?

it means that subconsciously, you are thinking about them

Yes, it means you are thinking about them a lot…trust me, I know. Unfortunately, you can’t cause yourself to dream about them by thinking about them more…it’s just a random thing. (And trust me, I’ve tried…)

I occasionally dream about people I haven’t thought about in years, and nothing that happened before the dream would make me think of them. I guess it could be a subconscious thing like @DrBill said, but I don’t really think there’s much to dreams. Nothing worth thinking hard about.

When I was a kid, I had a recurring dream that my grandma was a witch and I would see her flying on a broomstick out my window. You couldn’t probably psychoanalyze that all day, but I really don’t think it meant much of anything. My grandma and I were really close, so I’d say I was probably just watching too much Wizard of Oz.

No one can really say what a dream means. We are all speculating. The one validity is the emotion you are left with when you awaken. How did you feel when you woke up.

The imagery stored in one’s brain is just that. How it is retrieved is anybody’s guess. And that’w what we do..guess.

It means you associate them with something your mind is working on. It doesn’t mean anything about them, but it does mean something about you. Then again, everything you think, consciously or not, is about you.

The way to think about this is to look at the feeling of the events in your dream, and to see what associations you have with those feelings. Do not take the identity of the person very seriously, unless you want an excuse to go looking for them. But if you want to go looking for them, that’s on you. It has nothing to do with the other person.

It means nothing.

Being able to remember dreams in any form means you are getting decent sleep! Good for you!

Dreams don’t mean anything, in and of themselves. You obviously have feelings for this person, even if you’re no longer together. Stress and spicy foods are ususally what cause vivid dreams. But in reality, dreams are just chemical reactions in your brain, but they’re based upon what we see or know about or desire or fear in real life. Sometimes the stuff we know about gets mixed with things that don’t normally go together and that’s why we end up with freaky dreams. In your case, I think you just still have feelings for this person and he showed up in your dreams because he’s on your mind. It does not mean that he’s thinking about or dreaming about you or that you’re destined to be together. You might be, but the dream has nothing to do with it, it’s just brain chemicals and your particular life history.
