Free and Professional Dream Analysis and What Dreams Mean
Ex Boyfriend Got Married
Hanging On to Old Boyfriend
I was at a gathering with people from my past and present including a woman who turned out not to be a true friend. I see my old boyfriend and hear him talking about how he had gotten married. I was so sad. As I look over, I see a thick gold wedding band on his finger. He didn’t even notice me as he tells others they had gotten married and would have a party later. It seemed strange to invite people to a party but not to the wedding.
Main Life Issues:
My old boyfriend got married, but I still love him and miss him.
Someone with a new commitment invites others to share in their happiness.
Wedding: A new commitment.
Party: Sharing in someone’s happiness.
What it Means:
The dream is a reality check that brings up the question: Why can’t you accept it is over and move on? It may be because of trauma in your past with men (e.g. not having a father or being in an abusive relationship) so that when a man leaves, it brings up that trauma and you can’t let go. It is important to figure out what keeps you chained to a closed option. If you were let go from a job, you would not hang around the old office and pine for the old work, you’d find a new job; healthy relationships work that way. Despite pain and distress when one ends, you can’t hold on to the old; if you stay stuck in the past, that speaks of emotional and psychological imbalance in some way.
Bottom Line: The dream is an invitation to move, or at least to figure out what holds you back from doing so. It is not love for him that holds you back, that one-sided love is an illusion. For your best health, figure it out and move along.
