I have a slight crush on my boyfriend’s friend. I dreamt that I went to see him to tell him how I felt. He stopped watching the football for me, which is weird because he would never do that for anyone. Suddenly there was music and acting and laughing and he was acting out some scene where he was on top of me but holding himself up. He was about to kiss me but had tears in his eyes. He said he couldn’t because I had blood, acting out a scene of a vampire maybe?! He then said he needed to talk to me. He started off saying he didn’t want to hurt my feelings and then proceeded to say that I know what I want and I’m confident and believe I’m too good to be stuck here. He said it in a nicer way but that was the gist (I think this may be relevant to my boyfriend wanting to get a job interstate and take me with him, in which conversation with the friend, he said, jokingly, that I should stay and live with him). Continuing on with the dream, I said no I’m actually just very shy, which is true. He said I should make that clear to people. I then admitted I ‘kinda’ liked him. I wasn’t looking at his face in the dream but he just said ‘hmm’. I couldn’t tell if it was good or bad. Please help!!!!!!!!!

Lauri: Crushing on your BF’s BFF? Oh my, that’s an interesting situation you’ve got there and you can bet this dream is trying to help you with it.

All the music and laughing in the beginning of this dream reflects how you feel on the inside when you see him or think of him. He then acts out a scene and winds up on top of/over you. That’s probably connected to you “pretending” that you don’t have these feelings when you’re around him and your boyfriend. He is holding himself over you because you are holding him in a position in your mind where you look up to him. The tears in his eyes are most likely your own inner tears. Deep down you know this revelation – were it ever to be found out – would bring tears and heartache with it. That’s also why he tells you he can’t kiss you. This is a no no. It would break up a friendship and a relationship.

What he continues to tell you in the dream is super important to pay attention to because that is really coming from your wiser, intuitive self. Long story short, it seems you are telling yourself that you are better than this, crushing on your BF’s BFF and that you need to move on from it rather than allowing yourself to be stuck in that torn mindset. Listen to thy inner self and thou shalt never be steered wrong!
