Dreams are never just dreams. They are the only means of communication our subconscious mind has with our conscious mind. Most of the times, what we are dreaming about represents our feelings - positive or negative - about the situation we are in in real life or our dreams are somehow correlated to things we see, hear or do. Though there are many common dreams all of us have at some point or the other, a large number of them are dreams about boyfriends. Our partners are so close to us in life that they are, more often than not, a part of both our conscious as well as subconscious life. Here are 10 dreams we have about boyfriends (you might have too!) and what they probably mean!
If in real life, you and your partner have been experiencing some relationship trouble then this dream usually is bringing forth that aspect. Even if your relationship has been a little strained lately and you have been thinking about it, your subconscious tries to resolve those issues while you’re asleep. But when you wake up, if you remember what you and your partner were arguing about, you might want to actually have a discussion with him… Minus the argument, of course!
Dreaming about being pregnant could have many meanings, depending on what the situation is in your dream. However, usually pregnancy in a dream signifies a new beginning. So if you dreamt about you and your boyfriend having a baby together, maybe the two of you are entering a new phase in your relationship.
Don’t start worrying yet! It can be daunting to dream about your boyfriend breaking up with you, especially if there has been some recent turmoil in the relationship. But a break up only signifies the end of something. Which could either be your feelings for your boyfriend or just the bad phase you’ve been going through. For after every end, there is always a new beginning.
Marriage is always used to signify a lifelong or at least long term commitment. Have you and your boyfriend been taking it slow? Maybe it is time to kick it up a notch and accept that you are looking at a future together. After all, you’re literally dreaming about it!
Traveling dreams are actually the most common. You might see yourself in a train, plane or even driving to a place. How did that journey look like? Happy and easy or tumultuous? This signifies how you see your life journey with your boyfriend. Of course, this perception, like all other things, can also change with time.
A dream about being cheated on can be so disturbing that you end up picking a fight over it in real life. Take a deep breath for a moment. Dreaming about your boyfriend cheating on you doesn’t have as much to do with what he is doing as it has with what you are thinking. It could mean that you are actually a little insecure about your relationship. Maybe you feel that he might end up leaving you? This could be because of various reasons and definitely deserves some deep thinking before you discuss it with your partner.
On the other hand, when you dream about cheating on your boyfriend, don’t freak out. It doesn’t mean that you don’t love him or are interested in someone else. This actually signifies your emotion of guilt. Now, this doesn’t necessarily have something to do with your relationship. You might be feeling guilty over something else in your life but your subconscious decides to portray it in this way.
Sex dreams are another one of the common kind. We’ve all had one at some point or the other. Sometimes, of course, they are a way for you to release your sexual desires if you haven’t been intimate with someone for a while or if you wish to get intimate with your partner. At other times, sex dreams are about you wishing to incorporate a trait that the ‘dream you’ has and you think you don’t.
There are two different kinds of things that a dream about someone’s death signifies. You either feel that your relationship has come to a standstill and not going anywhere - or you feel like you have been emotionally distant from your partner lately. How were you feeling in your dream after your boyfriend’s death? Neutral? Happy? Or sad? That explains what your thoughts about your relationship have been like when you’re awake.
Maybe you dreamt about calling him but he won’t pick up? Unanswered texts? In some way or another, you just can’t seem to reach or talk to him. This dream speaks of neglect. You feel like no matter what you do, you are unable to actually express your emotions to your boyfriend in real life. Maybe you feel like he won’t understand or he might take it negatively? Nevertheless, it’s always worth a shot!
