I think this is the right place to put this...

So I generally take the meaning of dreams very seriously, because I believe dreams are the subconcious's way of communicating with the concious. I never really had "sex dreams" so to speak. Nothing like the female equivalent of wet dreams, nothing like that. I was beginning to think my subconcious was asexual [Wink]

Then I started going out with someone new, and I really like her and all that, and want to be with her as long as possible.

A couple weeks ago I had a dream with sexual activity between me and someone else - not my girlfriend. I didn't think much of it. But then last night (the first night of a three-and-a-half month summer break where we won't see each other at all) I had a dream where not one, but three people tried to seduce me.

I have no idea what my subconcious is trying to tell me. Any ideas?

amawesome - (adj.) a combination of 'amazing' and 'awesome,' usually by someone who has tied on a few too many. Ex: No, dude, listen! I like, luv ya man! I mean, you're like, amawesome!

I wouldn't look too far into it. Honestly, dreams can be interpreted a lot of ways. There are people who devote their lives to trying to figure out what dreams mean, if anything. Heck, there are supposedly symbols that, if you see them in your dream, mean something in particular. I think if a woman sees a snake, it has something to do with fertility/pregnancy.

I wouldn't try an analyze it. You'll just end up driving yourself crazy.

I don't believe that other people can effectively interpret your dreams for you. I think the best way to go about it, is to analyse all aspects of your dreams in terms of what they mean or represent to you. For instance, "sex" could represent forming a bond with someone (not necessarily a sexual bond though), so several people wanting to have sex with you COULD represent several people trying to form bonds with you, and your reaction to their advances could tell you something about how you feel about those bonds being formed. It could be that sex doesn't represent this to you at all, however-- you need to work out what it means to you.

i've been into dream interpretation for about 4 years now.

basically, you have to look at a dream as a series of metaphores. if you dream about dying it doesn't mean you're going to die, it just means that you're going through a transformation.

so, just because you're having sexual dreams about people other than your gf, doesn't mean you'll cheat or lose interest in her just because you dreamed it. i usually have sex dreams when i haven't gotten off in a while and my body/mind decides its time for some fun.

if your sex dreams start being about people you know, and aren't just about sex, then they can be something about your relationship to that person.

the best way to use dream interpretation is as a link to your subconcious. you can gain new insight about situations in your life. you won't be able to tell the future because it really doesn't exist yet, its basically just hope and speculation.

so, don't worry about sex dreams! i also take dreams seriously, but not all dreams are serious.

From "The Hidden Meaning of Dreams", byu Craig Hamilton-Parker: "Some current theories propose that dreams are the body's way of "rebooting" the brain. Dreams dispose of memories that would otherwise clutter the mind with unnecessary remembered experiences. In particular, they enable the emotions to become balanced(...) According to this viewpoint, without dreams we would simply overheat."

Of course,this isn't the absolute truth; it also says "Nobody knows for certain why we dream". I just thought I'd share.

As for dreams not meaning things that will happen? This is true in most cases, I believe. But personally, I dream of buildings that haven't been built, that I see years later as new construction sites. Of course, this doesn't mean that this will happen to you. I have dreamt of having sex with other people who I have no sexual interest in in real life. I wouldn't sweat it [Wink] . Dream interpretation is something interesting though o.o. Maybe you'll get sex dreams with other people now that you won't see your girlfriend, but I doubt that means you'll lose interest in her.
