Dream About Ex-Boyfriend – It is a little unnerving to wake up from a dream about your ex- boyfriend. Maybe the circumstances that surrounded your breakup were not pleasant.
No breakup is ever pleasant anyway so to dream about someone who is no longer your boyfriend is not something that makes you wake up with a smile unless of course, the dream was a happy one.

Why your dream of your ex-boyfriend
There are various reasons why you dream of your ex-boyfriend and they are as follows.-
You aren’t over the breakup
The relationship obviously meant a lot to you and when you broke up. You didn’t want to break up but it happened anyway because maybe your boyfriend no longer felt the same way.
The breakup was, of course, painful for you and you might not have gotten over it yet. The dream could be a reflection of how you constantly think about your ex.
You wish to get back together.
You could be having this ex-boyfriend dream because you wish to get back together with him. This is the case especially if you dream of him apologizing and wanting you back.
Don’t be misled and think that maybe he does because nothing could be further from the truth. The dream is simply a reflection of what you want to happen. Most likely the guy has moved on and you should do the same.
You are experiencing conflict.
You could be experiencing conflict in your life. The conflict could be the way you feel about yourself. You could be your own worst critic and don’t love yourself enough. You often sell yourself short and think of yourself as weak, not as good as others and lack courage.
You have a difficult time loving and being a friend to yourself. If you started looking at yourself in a positive light maybe you would start having more inspiring dreams.
Your current relationship lacks passion
You could be dreaming about your ex-boyfriend because your past relationship with him represents passion and spark which your current relationship lacks. Things might have become routine and you no longer feel that sizzling passion for your current partner.
The lack of this passion could be your subconscious way of reflecting it in your dream. Think of ways of bringing back that passion in your relationship rather than dwell on past passions.
You are experiencing some sort of misery
Maybe your relationship with your ex-boyfriend is one of those experiences that you would rather forget. But you are dreaming of him again and reliving the abusive relationship in your dream. It could be happening because you are experiencing some sort of misery in your current life.
Could be that the one you love or those you love are causing you misery and you wish it could end. The dream could be reflecting on what you are going through in your current life.
You are lonely
You could be single and lonely after a plethora of relationships which didn’t seem to work. You might also be craving a healthy relationship full of genuine love and support. You ex-boyfriend could have represented that and this could be a reason why you are dreaming of him.
Maybe you should try and date again and this time take your time and choose the right person. Make sure you are the right person yourself by living a good life.
Common dreams about your ex-boyfriend
There are common dreams about your ex-boyfriend along with their interpretations and they are as follows.-
Dream about your ex-boyfriend apologizing and wanting you back.
When you experience this dream where your ex-boyfriend is apologizing and asking you to be his girlfriend again, don’t even for a moment think that he wants you back.
This is simply you wanting him back and exploring what you are hoping is a possibility. What you need to do is explore new possibilities of a relationship with someone a lot better for you than your ex-boyfriend.
There is a reason why you broke up and as long as that reason is there the fact will remain that he is your ex. Open yourself up to new possibilities of other fulfilling relationships with your loved ones.
Dream about falling in love with your ex-boyfriend of many years ago.
The ex-boyfriend of your teenage years could be showing up in your dream because he is a symbol of what love first felt like.
That excitement, passion, desire and that feeling of being desired and always wanting to spend time together. That wonderful feeling of love and bubbles and innocence is what you always think of when you think of him.
This could be a way of your subconscious reminding you what love feels like and what you are missing in your current relationship.
You could either do something to awaken those feelings in your current relationship or leave that relationship. Think about what you want.
Dream about your ex-boyfriend rejecting you.
You could have this dream where your ex-boyfriend is rejecting you and saying he doesn’t want you back and you want him back.
This could be a sign for you to come back to reality and stop living in the past or building castles in the air. Start looking at what you could do to make your current life better if you are not in a relationship yet.
If you are in a relationship already think of ways in which you can make it better and something you can always be proud of. In short, make your current reality a better one.
Dream about fighting with your ex-boyfriend
This dream could be the symbol of your own personal conflict. You could be having a battle with your self-esteem. You don’t love yourself enough and are not your own best friend but instead your own worst critic.
Find the good in yourself and appreciate yourself more. Don’t always consider others better than you and well-deserving of a better life but think of yourself as deserving of the very best things in life.
Dream about having sex with your toxic ex-boyfriend
When you have this dream, first ask yourself if you will take him back when he comes back. If you still have feelings fight them and do everything you can to get over him.
However, if you are already over him and there is no way you will take him back when he comes begging then this could be a sign that you are getting over him.
You have grown a healthy attitude about it and have finally accepted that it is your past and the lesson has been learned and will not be repeated.
When you dream about your ex-boyfriend, this doesn’t really mean you aren’t over them. Often times it is hardly about them at all.
It could just be a reminder of our past and the current status of our waking life. Let anything unpleasant of the past be a good lesson that makes you avoid similar future mistakes.
