I had this dream that I was sitting in a room on a bed watching movies and my friend walks in. Pretty soon he starts kissing me but he kisses me just like my boyfriend does in reality. I told my boyfriend about it and he thinks the dream means that I want my friend; I don’t think that’s the case. I had a very similar dream last year but instead a girl was kissing me. Please interpret dream!
Lauri: It is only natural that your boyfriend would think your dream means that you want this friend you dreamed about. That’s because he (like most of us) is looking at your dream literally rather than symbolically. Dreams speak in symbols so looking at them literally often causes unnecessary fear, angst or even anger. So please tell your boyfriend I said, Fear not! Kissing in a dream is really about communication and conversation more than anything else because kissing, like a conversation, requires two mouths.
Let me give you a personal example. Just two nights ago I dreamed this really good male friend of mine kissed me. It is not because I desire this but because the day before we had a very lengthy conversation about a project we are working on together. He initiated the kiss because he not only initiated the conversation but is also, somewhat, taking control of the project. So your dream is probably connected to a similar situation in your waking life. The day before the dream, do you recall having a significant conversation with your friend? And was he the one that initiated the conversation just as he initiated the kiss?
It is also not random that you were on a bed. That may mean that the conversation may have been about the need to put some issue to rest. If the kiss was good in the dream, and I suspect it was since it felt like your boyfriend, that’s a good indication the conversation was good as well.
