Dream Interpretation: An Officer and a Gentlewoman

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:

The man I have feelings for is an officer; I am enlisted in the military, so a relationship is frowned upon, to say the least. But sometimes I get the feeling that he feels the same. I recently dreamed that he and I were working on something in a room and he looked at me very lustfully, and got very close to me. Then he kissed me. It was a very vivid kiss, and even though I wanted him to kiss me I felt strongly that he should know that I wanted more than a physical relationship, but when I pushed him away to tell him just that, other people walked in and I could not tell him. I was afraid he would leave after that, but he stayed like he was waiting for me to tell him something. Then I woke up. Please help me to understand this dream! Thank you!

Lauri: First of all, thank you for your service! Secondly, I feel for you. That is a difficult situation that your heart is in. So let’s delve right into this dream: It starts out where the two of you are working on something. Well, that reflects the fact that you are personally and emotionally having to “work” on resisting the urge to throw him down and ravage him right there on the spot every time you see him!

The make-out session that ensues is not only reflective of what you probably imagine to yourself on a daily basis but is also about a conversation that you desire in waking life. In my research I have found that kissing in a dream can always be connected to intimate conversation that has recently taken place or that needs to take place because – like kissing – it takes two mouths to communicate. Obviously the intimate conversation you desire is about your feelings for each other… and that is why you do try to begin the conversation right after the kiss! The people that come in and interrupt the conversation represent the rules and the parts of you that know this cannot happen, just yet.

The point at which a dream ends is the point, the main part of the message, your dream wants to leave you with. Your dream ends with him waiting for you to tell him something. That’s a good indication that your wiser dreaming mind feels it is best to wait for when the rules of the military are not going to be in your way… in the meantime, you can always live out a hot, sweaty romance in your dreams!
