    What Does it Mean When You Dream About Your Ex Boyfriend

    By on November 4, 2014

    Dreaming about your ex boyfriend. One of the absolute worst dreams you could possibly have. You wake up almost with a chill, your heart racing and your mind running in circles, thinking “What just happened? What does this mean?” Well, if you thought that your subconscious is telling you that you miss him terribly and you need to call and make amends right this second- you’re probably wrong. So put that fear to rest and check out some of the most common reasons why you might dream about your ex boyfriend. 2dbfd645c66aab8c38e0b9a4bd639cd9

    1. You Miss Something About Him

    Maybe your ex boyfriend had a certain quality that you absolutely adored. Maybe he knew how to make you laugh really well, or maybe he just knew how to snuggle you just right when it’s incredibly cold outside. Whatever it may be, you might just be yearning for that one certain quality in a person- not the actual person himself. So think about it: is there something you wish you could find in your current relationship or future relationships that you miss?

    2. You Miss Being in a Relationship

    relationship2

    If your dream was happy-go-lucky: the two of you walking hand in hand, laughing and smiling, checking out the most romantic spots in town, it may just mean you’re missing being in a relationship. It probably has little to nothing to do with your ex boyfriend. You’re probably just tired of being alone and want to share special someones with someone you love again. Which, of course, is COMPLETELY natural and nothing to be ashamed or weirded out by. Just don’t go running back into the arms of your ex boyfriend because you’re feeling lonely, okay? That will definitely do more harm than good!

    3. There is Unfinished Business

    Sometimes, when you break up with someone, not everything is said and done. Maybe you’re still harboring some ill feelings towards your ex boyfriend. Maybe you didn’t tell him about something important, like that one time you kissed someone on the lips but realized moments later it was an accident. It doesn’t matter what it is. But if you’re having these dreams because of some unresolved feelings or problems, then you should probably put it all on the table so these dreams stop and you can live your life with an ease of mind.

    4. You’re Totally Done With Him

    This one might be a little hard to believe- but man, it’s so true! If you had a dream where you are leaving your ex boyfriend, saying goodbye, or he even dies, it may be a sign that you are finally, one hundred percent done and over with him. There’s not an ounce of leftover feelings and you have the go ahead to move on with your life!

    5. You Miss Him

    miss him

    Okay, so, I want to say at least 75% of the time dreaming about an ex boyfriend does NOT mean you miss him. But there’s always that chance. If the two of you recently broke up, or you still miss him when you’re actually awake and coherent, it may be a definite sign that you’re not over him and you might even want to mend the relationship.

    6. Totally Random

    Dreams are random. It doesn’t get any more basic or obvious than that. So, there’s a pretty big chance that your dream was completely random- especially if it only happened once or twice and is far from consistent. Maybe it was just out of the blue, or maybe you were ‘stalking’ him online- you know, just checking up to see if his new girlfriend is better looking than you or he finally got that promotion he wanted (don’t worry, we’ve all checked up on our exes- don’t feel bad!). Or maybe you visited that pizza place you and your ex ALWAYS went to, and it just brought up some past memories which followed you into your dreams. Last but not least, maybe he popped up into your mind before you fell asleep, so your subconscious mind held onto that thought and turned it into a silly dream. No big deal!

    I know- dreaming about an ex boyfriend can be seriously panic inducing, especially if you’ve had a bad past with that certain someone. Just remember that nine times out of ten, dreaming about an ex boyfriend has nothing to do with you missing them or wanting them back in your life. Try to look at the bigger picture. Look at what actually happened in the dream and go from there. It may just mean you need to stop looking at his Facebook profile or you might need to go out and find yourself a new man!

    We wanna know! Have you ever had a dream about an ex boyfriend? What happened in your dream? What do you think your dream meant?

      My ex and I has been broken up for 5 months now. I recently had a dream that he has passed away. Two days after that I had a dream that he was dating my cousin. Why do I keep having dreams about him?

        Your dreams are reflections of your previous emotional connection with your ex. The death in your dream may be a sign of a change and that you are aware that this relationship has ended. Allow thoughts of him to fade. Determine what you want for your future without him, and ensure that you share your kindness and compassion with everyone in your life. Have a great day, China!

      So in the dream it was me, my friend, my ex and his family. It was me and my friend hanging out at my house talking about my birthday and while we were talking I was texting my ex asking him if him and his fam want to come over and just hangout. So a few mins pass by and they show up. So I was happy to have them over and just talk to them. Literally all of us are hanging out in my room just talking and then out of nowhere they’re asking us questions like if we really wanna have a serious future and all that crazy shit. All I kept doing was looking at my friend like wtf is going on. Afterwards I invite to my birthday party and they said they’ll come. And then it literally became night time and my grandma was in the house cooking and his mom goes in and introduces herself saying that she’s my mother in law and my grandma looks at me and goes you’re in trouble! And I’m like welp okay then. Then all I remember is having my family members come over and say happy birthday and hand me gifts and I was literally walking out my house getting into the car with my mom and leaving

      I dream my ex boyfriend is walking away for good. He walked across to a field dragging his suitcase. On the other scene, i was holding a microphone giving a speech up in the stage but i dont see my audience. When i went home, i saw my ex passport left on the bedside table. I woke up so confused.

        Your dream is a reflection of your knowledge that this relationship has concluded. The speech may have been a sign that you have a message to share. Your inability to see them may come from your knowledge of being on stage or you concerns that you do not know who you want to speak with. Your passport may be a sign of your desire to travel or return home. Have a great day, Kris!

      I had a dream about my ex-boyfriend I was standing in a room with my husband and my ex walked in. We looked at each other and embraced with a very meaningful kinda long hug and I whispered in his ear I’m sorry and I miss you. He also whispered in my ear I still love you. My husband is standing there patient(the complete opposite in waking life) we separate from the hug and smile. I walk to my husband hold his hand along with my ex hand and say why can’t I have you both. Then I say I’m just kidding and I turn to my ex and say I’m sorry I’m leaving with him goodbye. I woke up next to my husband feeling confused with a aching heart…… is there clarity??

        He has shared his feelings with you. He still feels a strong emotional connection with his ex. He is attracted to you and feels comfortable sharing that information with you. Decide what you believe is appropriate for your relationship. Determine what you want for your future. Speak with him about your thoughts and feelings. Have a great day, Lorena!

      In my dream about my ex, a friend of his came to me and told me he wanted to see me. I went to see him and he gave me 2 keys to his house and asked me to come back later that night, but I didn’t go, I woke up but I soon went back to sleep it was very bizarre, the dream continued from that point!! I was at my house, he drives up and gets out of the car with this intense look on his face and gets a bag out of his trunk and walks up to me and says “he’s coming to stay with me and my mom”. My mom passed away 4 years ago and I haven’t seen him in 8 years. Please help me decipher this dream.
