Hi everyone!

I am having some strange dreams lately, I have a boyfriend whom I am very happy with, but I keep having dreams that I am with other men. They are not sexual, but I have dreamt of being with my ex (I was sitting on his lap and he had his arms around me) I have dreamt I was with guys I don't know in real life, and with someone from my job. It used to only be my ex, but lately it has been more frequent and it is really annoying!! What is my brain trying to tell me? I don't get it.

Tisha-1 agony auntUncle Sneaker, it could have been worse, Susan could have said 'billions!'

To our poster, dreams are just our minds way of staying healthy, so don't over-analyze them. They might be a useful tool for examining what's troubling us in life, or they may just be simple nonsense of random thoughts.

Don't worry about this, really, my guess is that everyone here who can even remember a dream will have dreamed of an ex or a friend or a celebrity at one point or another.

All the best.

Susan Strict agony auntThe reply from "anonymous female":

"You don't stop fancying other people automatically just because you are with someone"

It's worth saying again.

And adding that there are probably a million people out there who are more attractive than the one you are with. It doesn't mean they are right for you to share your life with. It applies to ex's as much as to those you haven't yet met!

Dreams are just that, dreams, nothing can ever be interpreted from them, if so, my hubby would be dead. I keep dreaming about him and his ex getting back together, when there is more chance of hell freezing over. Take them with a pinch of salt.

take care

You don't stop fancying other people automatically just because you are with someone, and this is only dreams.

You say you are happy with your boyfriend, so don't worry about the dreams.

Seeing as you are happy in your relationship then it probably doesn't mean much. Maybe your mind is just comparing what your boyfriend was like to your ex and what he is like compared to strangers. Maybe it's just telling you that you are happier with him and that these guys are not the same. Or maybe it's exploring doubts. What ever the reason I don't think you should be worries about it. It may be annoying, but hopefully it will stop soon and you can have a peacful night's sleep. Try not to stress.

Uncle Sneaker agony auntThe chances are that it doesn't "mean" anything. Your subconscious explores all sorts of irrelevant subjects while you are asleep. It's one of the natural processes that keeps us sane. You could say it's the insane part of your brain being allowed its outlet so that it doesn't take over during the day when we need to be rational. Sometimes you remember these things, and sometimes you don't.

Nothing to worry about.
