So, I pretty recently got out of a long-term relationship. Although difficult, it is clearly a good thing, objectively. Needed to happen. Anyways,
there's this girl I work with. We've always talked and gotten along good. And she's good looking. But, she's had a boyfriend, and I've had a
girlfriend. And I was just thinking to myself, in the few days before what I'm going to talk about, how I liked her and everything, but wasn't
interested in her in that way. And I thought this was a good thing. Because, when I was younger, if a girl was good looking and I got along with her
good, of course I'd be potentially interested. But, I've felt we didn't really connect 'in that way,' even though she's good looking and we get along.
So I thought, this is a good thing, it means your views on relationships are maturing. I want to actually really connect with someone in the right
way, before I would be interested and pursue something like that.
But then, I had a couple of dreams about her. Despite what you might think, they were not sexual whatsoever. They were extremely innocent, like the
first romantic connection. In the last one, it was just her and I sitting next to each other, talking. And we kept making little incidental, but
meaningful seeming, contact. Then our hands started lightly and playfully touching, coming closer to actually holding hands, until we were finally
actually holding hands, and just looking into each others eyes. And the way that I felt. It was just...so amazing. The love and happiness I felt was
absolutely overwhelming. Now, this is a 'type' of dream I have from time to time. A dream that generates a feeling of the most absolutely intense love
you can possibly imagine. The most amazing feeling I can possibly imagine. This feeling is sometimes in a romantic context, but not always.
Anyways, before that dream I didn't really think of her in that way at all. I actually had it pretty clear in my mind that I wasn't interested in that
way. But then after that dream, when I've seen her I can't help but think about it. I remember that feeling I had in my dream, with her, how amazing
it was. And weirdly, the next day after the dream, when I saw her at work, which is also the last time I saw her, a couple things happened. One, she
went out of her way to talk to me more than usual. We were talking in a less superficial way. And, she mentioned that her and her boyfriend broke up.
And the fact that this all happened the next day also makes me think the dream may have had meaning. Now, in this thread I went into a bit of detail
about the particular situation. But that is mostly just an illustration, it isn't entirely the point of the thread. I just found it interesting that
my whole thought process changed, as a result of a couple dreams. I'm still not sure if I want to act on it or not, but I find it interesting. And I'm
curious about others' experiences. Whether you've had dreams which caused you to change your thoughts or behavior in relation to what the dream was
about. And whether dreams actually have meaning, and should have that effect. Or if they don't really have meaning in that way, in the sense of taking
their content seriously and having it impact you in a way that changes your thoughts or behavior. I've always been fascinated by dreams, and have been
finding this to be interesting, and find the general form of it, dreams having real-life impact, interesting.
