Why Do I Keep Dreaming About My Ex Boyfriend

These turbulent times have resulted in a slew of bizarre dreams, ranging from terrifying to sweet to violent. We’ll go over the most prevalent ones here.

Does he REALLY like you? Take this quick quiz to find out! Find out what he REALLY thinks, and how strong his feelings for you are. Start the quiz now!

If it’s a long-ago ex

“Dreaming about a long-ago ex, particularly a first love, is really common,” Loewenberg explains. “That ex becomes a symbol for passion, unbridled desire, fearless love, and so on.”

This is your subconscious mind’s way of informing you that you need more spice in your life.

If it’s a recent ex

It may appear like your mind is attempting to undo all of your hard work in the waking hours to get over this individual.

“Your subconscious is actually trying to help you recover and understand how you’re feeling about the breakup,” Loewenberg explains.

If they were abusive

Malina explains that dreaming about an abusive or toxic ex (physically or mentally abusive, serial cheater, etc.) is a normal trauma response.

If you’re dreaming about an abusive ex, Loewenberg says it’s probably because you’re still trying to figure out why it happened during the day.

If you’re “beating yourself up” in your waking hours about this old relationship, the dream could represent the abuse you’re now inflicting on yourself by obsessing.

If you miss them or they miss you

What characteristics did your ex possess that you don’t have in your life right now? If your ex was humorous, for example, set up a Zoom date with another funny pal.

What traits did your ex assist you in developing? It’s time to use them without your ex’s help!

If you want them back or they want you back

Again, consider the qualities you enjoyed in your ex or the ones you wish he or she had when you were together.

If someone is apologizing

Rather, it’s your mind creating up a scene in which your ex said exactly what you hoped he had said.

And what if you’re the one making the apology? There’s a good chance you’ve lately done or said something you regret. Your initial attempt to make apologies = the dream.

If someone’s confronting the other about past wrongs

“If you have a dream about facing someone, you’re confronting the part of you that has been wounded by that person,” Loewenberg explains.

If you’re getting back together

Babes, it’s time to dig deep and consider whether or not you’d go back to an ex if they came crawling.

If that’s the case, it’s time to reflect on why you split up in the first place. Those were probably some pretty solid reasons! (A therapist or a protective BFF can be really beneficial in this situation.)

If, on the other hand, you have no interest in such ex during the day, the dream is a sign that you’ve made peace with the relationship and mastered the lessons it taught you. Exciting!

If you’re falling in love again

According to Loewenberg, it means you’re longing to be cared for and cherished right now. Isn’t that an understandable desire in the midst of a pandemic?

If you’re getting physical

So, think about if you really want to reconnect with your ex. Making a list of the reasons you broke up can be useful in this situation as well.

“If you have a child together, it’s not about the sex or kissing,” Loewenberg continues, “it’s about connecting for the sake of the child.” That’s great to know!

If you’re fighting

“Dreams like this indicate a present issue in your life,” Loewenberg explains.

This is to be expected, given that we’re all going through huge routine change right now.

If someone’s cheating on the other

“If you’re dreaming about your ex cheating on you, it’s an indication you’re carrying feelings of suspicion into your current relationship, according to Loewenberg.

“Even if they didn’t, if you’re dreaming that they did, it’s likely that something in your current relationship is making you feel like the third wheel.”

If you break up all over again

Was it a long time ago? Consider what else is making you feel rejected in your life. Have you recently been dismissed as a result of COVID-19? Has one of your best friends started texting or phoning you less frequently?

If they’re in danger

If you play the knight in shining armor, you’ll most likely learn something from the connection.

Did your ex, for example, bring out your more extroverted side? Your subconscious is nagging you to practice your schmoozing skills in real life.

It’s actually an indication that you’re letting go of that relationship if you didn’t try to save them. Buh-bye!

If you kill them

Goodbye, baby! Most likely, you’re having this dream because you’ve put an end to any remaining resentment toward your ex.

This dream could imply that you still have a lot of anger and hurt to process against your ex if you’re still carrying around a lot of anger and hurt toward your former.

Is it true that if you dream of someone they dream of you?

Of course, it’s possible that when you dream about someone, they’re thinking about you or dreaming about you as well.

This phenomenon is known as “dream telepathy,” and it has been examined extensively by experts, who have yet to find any strong evidence that it exists.

According to several studies, people who dream about someone else in their sleep are actually dreaming about themselves.

What does it mean if you dream about someone repeatedly?

There is a lot of debate over what dreams imply, with the general consensus being that they disclose the depths of our subconscious, including our fears and wants.

But what does it indicate if you have recurring dreams about the same person when you go to bed?

Having reoccurring dreams about the same person, whether they are your best friend or your worst adversary, shouldn’t be taken too seriously, according to a professional psychologist.

Recurring dreams are a common occurrence, affecting two-thirds of the population. These dreams may not indicate that you are infatuated with this person, but they may represent your emotions and concerns.

Does dreaming about someone mean they miss you?

Despite the fact that I haven’t seen him in years, he’s been showing up in my dreams many times a week.

“When you dream about someone, it signifies they are missing you,” I’d heard before.

I was so perplexed by what was going on that I wanted to investigate more to see if dreaming about someone meant they were thinking about you.

Why do I keep dreaming about my ex and I getting back together?

Dreaming about an ex could signal that you still care for them, although this isn’t true for everyone. It could just indicate that you’re still processing aspects of the relationship for which you haven’t found full closure. “Dreams of reuniting with an ex-lover don’t always imply that you still harbor feelings for them or that you will ever be in a relationship with them,” Walden explains. “Unfinished business is a common theme in these nightmares.”

Our sleeping minds provide us a chance to reevaluate things from a more mature viewpoint, process unacknowledged sentiments, or find closure on things that have been lingering in our subconscious by revisiting former relationships in our dreams. Take time to talk about what came up in the dream and/or write it down in a notebook. Sometimes just dreaming about the circumstance and thinking on it in your waking life is enough to emotionally close the chapter with that ex.

How can I stop dreaming about my ex?

Even when your dreams are about something important, they are rarely actual fantasies. Dreams are frequently symbolic. Things we dream about are frequently a collection of thoughts, events, and reflections that accumulate over the day. It’s possible that you’re missing your ex. Similarly, if your former possessed a quality that your present spouse lacks, it could be a yearning for the attribute your ex possessed.

If you’re dreaming about an ex from a long time ago, it could be an indication of a yearning for the past. When we yearn for our past lives, we may be wishing for happiness or other positive sentiments associated with that particular period.

Dreaming about an ex can represent a point in our lives when we were less responsible, less complicated, or more enjoyable. We accumulate more duties as we grow older. This can cause us to miss more carefree or simple times. If this is the case, it might be appropriate to indulge in some nostalgia while dreaming, but remember to return to the present moment.

When you dream about an ex are they thinking of you?

According to Psychics Universe, an ex in a dream could be a representation of a part of you. Perhaps you gave up too much of yourself and what you love in a previous relationship, and now it’s time to reclaim it. Alternatively, it could indicate that you are ignoring yourself in some way. In any case, it’s not a bad idea to reflect on your own behavior throughout your time with your ex and see whether any big changes are required.

What does it mean spiritually when you dream about someone?

It’s possible that dreaming about someone is simply an expression of your affection or fascination with them. The dream represents your acceptance, self-confidence, and self-respect if the individual likes you back. If the individual in your dream appears to reject you, it’s a sign that you’re down on yourself and that insecurity is creeping in. You’re not sure you’ll be able to win the individual over, so you’re mentally preparing yourself for rejection so it won’t be as painful. This could be interpreted as a subconscious protection mechanism.

When you have a dream about someone you used to like, it’s not so much about the individual as it is about the sequence of events surrounding them. You might be going through a similar process in your life right now, or you might be having sentiments that are startlingly similar to the ones you experienced for them.

What does it mean when you dream of someone you don’t talk to anymore?

Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung, two of the most famous dream interpreters, felt that dreams represented your wishes.

If you have a dream about someone you don’t talk to any longer, it implies you have a strong yearning for them or something related to your relationship with them.

What makes it even more perplexing is if it’s someone you’ve never been very close to, such as a former casual coworker or a random stranger you met on a Paris bus.

What do you “want” for from them? It’s a good idea to delve a little deeper at this point.

For instance, a few weeks ago I had a dream about an old classmate named Colin and a game he and some of my classmates used to play in which we kicked around old crushed pop cans.

Why do I keep dreaming about the same person from my past?

“Some people are merely conjured up by the mind to offer a symbolic depiction of a certain theme or issue; others are generally symbolic of some aspect of the dreamer’s personality.” Seeing people from the past in a dream, according to Manly, indicates that there is a lesson to be taught in the present.
