Other people’s dreams are never interesting…except when they’re about sex. Each week, our dream analyst Lauri Loewenberg tells one lucky reader what their dirty dream means. This week, a reader asks Lauri:
My boyfriend and I have been together for three months. We live together and are very happy. But I had a dream we broke up. And two weeks after we did, he was engaged to someone else. It wasn’t anyone I knew. And he and I were sitting on a deck outside as I talked to him about his decision. Although I was devastated, I wouldn’t let him see that. Please help me interpret this dream!
Lauri: Fear not my dear! This dream isn’t foretelling of your relationship’s demise. However, it does suggest there has been some sort of separation… perhaps a separation of ideas. Do you recall having a disagreement around the time of this dream? His engagement is most likely connected to some activity or idea he has “engaged in” in waking life that you perhaps are none too happy with, something that may lead to you feeling left out. Your dream is giving you advice, as our dreams often do. Just as you are outside discussing his decision in the dream, so should you get your feelings “out in the open” regarding this waking life issue. Hiding how you feel doesn’t do anyone a bit of good. Aside from friendship, open honesty is a big key to a long, healthy relationship.
