Being socially inept, I don't know if there's a proper way to bring up the subject of telling people that you dreamed about them or not.
I once told a guy (that I had a good work relationship with) that I had dreamed about him. I told him because I wanted to ask if the dream were at all real. It was an inoccuous, non-sexual dream in which I had seen him when he was in college and he was fatter and had a pony tail.
Since we are different age groups and did not go to college at the same time and I had not met him until a year prior to the dream, I was wondering if he had a pony tail in college or if he had lost weight since then.
He was rather offended and promptly told me that he was a happily married man and his wife would not like to find out that some woman was having dreams about him.
I never got to ask him the question I wanted because as soon as I said, "I had a dream last night and you were in it" he jumped in with his statement before I could finish the sentence. I spent the next several minutes trying to apologize and explain that it wasn't "that" kind of a dream but the damage was done.
Moral of the story....keep it to yourself unless you know they are the kind of person who might want to hear about your dreams.
