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. Got a dream you want Lauri to analyze? Click here to submit it (18 and older only, please). This week, a reader asks Lauri:

I had sex with more than one guy and don’t know who is the father of my baby. All day and all night I think of one guy, I dream about us getting back together, us fighting, him loving his baby. I dream about the time we had sex — every dream I have is about him, and when I’m not dreaming, I think about him. What does this mean?

LauriYou’re dreaming about this one guy so much because you think about him so much. You see, we tend to dream about what is on our mind the most. Clearly, of all the guys you’ve been with, he’s the one you have feelings for.

Do these dreams mean he IS the father? Maury Povich could answer that more accurately than these dreams. But what they are telling you is this: He is the one you sure hope is the father. In addition, they are also trying to help you come to terms with your situation.

Your dreams of fighting with him are you trying to deal with your own inner conflict about your situation and how you are alone right now. When you dream you are back together, on one level it is because that is your desire, but on another, it is you trying to come to peace with your circumstance.

What I can tell you with 100% certainty is that these dreams are going to continue to nag you until you find out who the father is. The dreaming mind does not like complacency or unresolved issues, so it will nag us to death until we take care of what is left hanging. Find out who the father is then take it from there. Good luck, and sweet dreams!

Dreamer’s response: Yeah, somehow at the back of my head I knew that it has to be about feelings. I love how you interpreted it though. You didn’t say what I want so desperately to hear, which is that he is the father. But you didn’t lie — so much better. The thoughts and dreams continue but I will find a solution. Thank you!
