Other people‚Äôs dreams are never interesting‚Ä¶except when they‚Äôre about sex. Each week, our dream analyst¬†Lauri Loewenberg¬†tells one lucky reader what their dirty dream means. Got a dream you want Lauri to analyze?¬†Click here to submit it.¬†This week, a reader asks Lauri:
I only hangout with people I work with — mostly guys who are 8 or more years older than I am. I’ve never been uncomfortable with this, in fact I’ve had a few flings with two of them. But I had a dream that I had a serious romantic relationship with my boss who is middle-aged, but attractive. I haven’t thought of him in this way at all until I had this dream. In it, my parents encouraged a marriage between us that I wasn’t wanting at all yet he and my parents forced me to marry him. How could I have such a dream?
Lauri:¬†Shagging the boss in your dreams can sure make it difficult to come into work the next day, huh? Remember, sex dreams are not necessarily about the person but rather about what he or she represents.
In the case of your boss it is most likely power, authority, management skills, decision making, etc. that you need to merge into your own life. Your parents are even encouraging marriage in this dream. In real life what have your parents been encouraging you to do? Take on more responsibility? Better management skills? Or maybe it’s your job in general that they are wanting to be long term for you?
You don’t want to do this in the dream so it must be connected to something in real life you aren’t to keen on… but that may in fact benefit you, regardless. Where in your life do you need to take on the role of boss?¬† Are you facing a tough decision?¬† Do you need to fire or get rid of a certain element, person or behavior in your life? ¬†Or perhaps you simply need to merge with your boss psychologically in order to deal with a client or project. Whatever the case, the message of this dream is that it’s time to take charge! Being decisive and authoritative would suit you well now.
