Dream Interpretation: My Boyfriend and I Both Dreamed I Cheated

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:

What does it mean if I dream I cheated on my boyfriend and he had the same dream too, that I cheated on him?

Lauri: You’ve got two very excellent questions that a lot of people wonder about: the cheating dream and having the same dream as someone else.

Let’s start with the latter. When you have the same dream as someone else on the same or close to the same night, it’s because you are both dealing with the same waking life issue and your subconscious minds respond to it in a similar manner by giving you similar dreams.

Next: You both had a dream of you cheating. This is a big clue as to what the waking life issue is that you two are dealing with. I’ll assume that you’re a good girlfriend and haven’t cheated and that is why this dream is confusing you both. If that’s the case, then this shared dream suggests you both feel there is a third wheel in the relationship, but rather than it being another man, it is more likely something else that you are giving your time and attention to. Is there a new baby that is taking up all your time and affection? Or is it something else like your job or a side project or even a friend or family member that is taking too much of your time?

Whatever it is, your boyfriend is feeling cheated out of your time and you seem to be aware that something is getting in the middle of your relationship. Rather than allowing this dream to upset you, let it be a wakeup call that your relationship needs a little more TLC right now. Do that and the dream won’t come back… for either one of you!
