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:

Last night I had a dream about hooking up with this guy my best friend likes. I don’t feel anything about him and I can’t tell my friend — she might think I want him.

LauriYes, it is a good idea not to tell your friend about this dream. Even though it doesn’t mean what you might think, she still might get bent out of shape. Remember, dreams are symbolic, so this dream may not be so much about him, but rather about what he represents. And hooking up isn’t so much about a physical union you want but rather a psychological union you need.

That being said, what qualities stand out about this guy to you? Is he really funny? Is he easy going? Does he have strong opinions? Even though you may not be into him as far as chemistry is concerned, there is something about him your subconscious mind is attracted to and wants to unite that quality into yourself and make it your own.

We’ll also hook up with certain people in our dreams when we have “come together” with them on some level in real life… or when we NEED to come together on some level. Did you and this guy recently have a conversation where you connected in some way? Or maybe odds are good he’ll be dating your friend soon, so your subconscious mind is urging you to connect with him on some psychological level. Whatever it is, it’s all good!
