Recurring Dreams About Boyfriends
Choosing between Current and Ex Boyfriend
I've been having a recurring dream the past year; it 's always the same. I run into my ex and we end up spending lots of time together. He wants to get back together but I’m now dating my current boyfriend. In the dream I still have feelings for my ex and am tempted, but hesitate because I love my current boyfriend and don’t want to cheat on him or hurt him. In the dream I am really torn.
Torn; really felt love for my ex.
I have no contact with my ex; we were a couple on and off for two years. I’ve been with my current boyfriend for four years though it feels as if he has become a little distant of late and working a lot.
Someone keeps experiencing the old and is torn between old and new.
Running into Ex: What pops up unexpectedly; in this case, likely a metaphor for thoughts that are popping up in your head about current relationship and what you should do about it.
Old boyfriend: Actual person or the traits of the ex are being highlighted.
Current boyfriend: Actual person and a comparison with the ex.
Feeling Torn between two men: Suggests you are having second thoughts about current relationship and does not mean you'll get back with ex; it shows you have to make a decision about what you want in a relationship.
What it Means:
When "two of a kind or more" appear in a dream and there is difficulty choosing between them, the dream is about a choice you are facing.
You may have been wondering why your current boyfriend is distant these days, and your mind turns that into a question and gives you insight into your question. Or, because he is becoming distant in real life, you may have thoughts of what life was like before you met your current love. Or the dream may bring up whether you are feeling torn about the life you have with your current boyfriend and the kind of life you would really want? The old and the new boyfriends may represent your values and the dream invites you to evaluate what you really want.
Plus, you say your current boyfriend is distant and working a lot. Ahhh... those can be signs that he wants a new direction and is doing who knows what ... that you may not know about, and your dream may be picking up on that.
Bottom Line: Decide what you want; that can include a truthful talk with your boyfriend to get things out in the open, and make sure you're both on the same page.
