Ex-Boyfriend Dreams

The dream interpretation of Ex-Boyfriend

Ex-Boyfriend Dream Definition

Were you dreaming about an ex? In your waking life, having this dream doesn’t necessarily mean that you’re still in love with them.

Instead, ex-dreams could how the things that you’re missing in your current life. It might be that you used to receive more affection in your old relationships than your current relationship, and perhaps you’re missing that?

Wherever we are in our present life, there will always be a part of us still in our ex-boyfriend or old relationship.

A person can leave a big impact – regardless of if it was a forced end or something quite natural. Don’t leave yourself wondering how you move on from an ex-boyfriend when really all the dream is explaining about your life is what it is missing in relationships. Or something as simple as revisiting previous memories of a relationship.

Most Frequent Examples of Dreams about an Ex

Did you dream about an ex-boyfriend being abusive?

Was your ex-boyfriend in real life or was he sweet in real life? To dream of an abusive ex, examples of that are the reason you may struggle with the unconscious mind.

You need to ask yourself what are you missing from your life? It’ll take time – dreaming of an abusive ex is tough.

You shouldn’t put your breakup on a pedestal, ultimately, it relies on your own pure bravery. An abusive ex-boyfriend means that, yes, you suffered with becoming a new version of yourself – don’t hold back the emotions, you’ve got all the tools you want.

Did You Dream About… the Breakup of an Ex?

To remember the break-up of your ex-boyfriend in waking hours is incredibly difficult to move on from. It’s entirely normal for you to miss them. However, the break-up happened.

There are two sides to every story. And as an ex-boyfriend suggests, it’s all in the subconscious mind. If you’re truly struggling, then medical associations are always a good idea. Over time you’ll move on from what happened – just break the cycle. Don’t let every future love turn out like a recent ex.

Out of any ex-boyfriend you’ll have, your first is always the one that will break your heart the most. It’s not necessarily about what they do, sometimes it’s how they make you feel – and that feeling is difficult to translate form an ex-boyfriend to someone who is a current relationship.

Did You Have Recurring Dreams About an Ex

Dreams About an Ex Could Make You Feel…

Positive Dreams

Excited: To be excited about dreaming about an ex-partner may be linked to the fact that you have a lot of love for them still. Remember, emotions are complicated. Just because your feelings for a former flame are positive, doesn’t mean you haven’t found your peace.

Curious: If you wake up feeling curious after dreaming about your ex doesn’t mean that you should reunite with them. This certain person left your life for a reason, and although your feelings towards them may be romantic ones, you can still wonder what is happening to a person and not have them in your life.

Content: Did you wake up feeling content after your dream about an ex? This is a great thing! It indicates that you’re over the emotional baggage that you were carrying around and now you can move on from that ex-person you had so many feelings for.

Negative Dreams

Worried: If you wake up worried from your dream about an ex, then there may be a few reasons for this. It could be that in your real life, the past trauma from your relationship is appearing again, or it could be that you’re worried you’ll never find a new partner. Regardless, your dreams depends entirely on you – not your ex. But instead, dreaming about an ex is a manifestation of things not going well in your waking life.

Confused: Emotions can be confusing, especially when you’re dreaming about an ex when you’re in a new relationship. But generally speaking, your current partner is not a reflection of your past relationship. Dreaming about your ex doesn’t mean you’re unhappy, instead, it means that the subconscious mind is reliving memories you once enjoyed (or didn’t) in the past. It probably doesn’t mean anything.

Hurt: To wake up with negative feelings after a dream about your ex-partner typically indicates that there are still some emotions attached to the situation. Perhaps you’ve had a hard time moving on from your ex-partner, or your emotions aren’t being met by your present partner. Either way, you need to figure out how you fill those unresolved feelings. And often times, that doesn’t mean you should go back to your ex, but instead, you need give them to yourself.

A Bit of Context Into… Dreams About an Ex

The Spiritual Meaning

Spiritually, dreaming about an ex-relationship is an example of that ex-boyfriend still thinking about you.

This can be quite uncomfortable in dream analysis, but it doesn’t mean you don’t love your current partner. Instead, consider the relationship from long ago that still haunts you. What went wrong? What would you change?

This is your sign to take any unresolved issues and find a way to break the cycle that you’re in.

The Psychological Meaning

From a psychological perspective, Sigmund Freud believed that a dream is associated to our subconscious minds.

When you wake up from dreaming, do you write it down in a dream journal? We recommend you do. It’s important to spend waking hours considering the complexities of the mind. But remember, you can miss someone and they not be right in your life.
