    Is the dream telling you something about yourself, or your relationship?

    Why does the man that you dream about,  fulfill your needs, better than flesh and blood man that you are with?

    Dreams are a reflection of our deepest thoughts not even we can totally understand or control. It could be your dream man is the release from reality you truly need.

    Science has yet to figure out why we dream. Any answers about dreaming and it's meanings are mostly just ideas and guesses to be honest. I won't go into all the guesses as to why we dream, it's possible importance to our general health nor the mechanics of the brain.

    When we are awake our brain filters the information it receives in a number of ways ... and every brain is different. For example when awake we may not see the deceit of a friend or family or stranger, but when we sleep, the filters (it is believed) are mostly turned off and we can see without the emotion, judgements and so on. The brain picks up information we are not even consciously aware of and so it is not to insane to suspect that when you dream of something personal it is your brain showing you (purposely or not) information you may have missed or showing you a different angle you refused (via filters) to see when awake.

    So yes to question one .... the problem though is interpreting the dream accurately when awake and the filters are back on.

    In regards to the question about the man you dream about ... I can only really think of one thing and that is fantasy is always better than reality because in reality you control only one person, yourself. In dreams you control the man as well and could theoretically change small pieces to make him more to your liking. You know? Like change that tone he uses when he is tired of your talking, or the way he smells sometimes, or that annoying teeth clicking or whatever... your fantasy man is your creation, your reality man is ... well his own man.

    I'm no expert on dreams, but it was always my understanding that dreams are rarely (if ever) literal and they can only really be interpreted from your perspective. So, for example, if you were in a bad relationship, it's doubtful the dream would use anything from the relationship to represent it and it would only be giving you your own perspective on things because it can't assess something from outside your own brain. This is why it always frustrates me when someone thinks a sex dream means they are unhappy in love or that they should be with someone specific. Very likely, a sex dream will have nothing to do with sex and the person you're coupling with is a representation of something other than their literal face.

    Well, I dreamed about my husband off and on for two years prior to meeting him. It was weird already knowing his face though I'd never met him before. But we fell in love, he's my best friend and I'm still as passionate about him twenty-two years later. Now it could be you simply need an ideal lover and your brain is helping you out by creating these dreams for you...or you could be having a foretelling of that wonderful Mr. Right you are meant to be with smile

    My dream was telling me about the person.  In my dreams, I was with my dead husband, and the things we use to do and share.  All of the little things that make up a relationship.  They were very exciting dreams.  He came to me to let me know that this person could not give me what I needed.   He was right.   Everything that I needed, I got from my husband.  Dreams that pertain relationships, don't always There are the little things that make a relationship, and if they are missing, then you need to let it go, and that was what my husband came to let me know.  He was showing me that I had the total package with him, and not to sell myself short, and that the right man will come along.

    So, you do need to pay attention to your dreams, for there will be a lesson there if you are willing to look for it.   I can't not help the fact that I have great sex dreams, but it has always been with my husband.  God rest his soul.
