Dream Symbol: significant other
(partner, spouse, etc.) Dreaming about your real-life significant other can mean that person is on your mind for a particular reason right now. Pay attention to what's happening in the dream for cues about your thoughts and feelings toward them or the relationship right now.
In a dream where someone is your significant other who is not in real life:
- The dream person may simply represent your significant other and is portraying certain characteristics that you are noticing in them right now
- Your subconscious mind may be exploring what it would be like to be closer to the person in the dream (not necessarily romantically), or perhaps you just like this person, think they're nice, find them interesting, or you've noticed qualities you admire in them
Using this Dream DictionaryTips to Understand Dream Meaning
Dream symbol meanings are different for each person. It's IMPORTANT to consider:
- Personal meaning - What the dream symbol means to you, what it reminds you of, how it makes you feel.
- Context - How the dream symbol appears in the dream. For example, in a dream about a bee - what was the bee doing, how and where it was doing it, and how did you feel about it?
- Look beyond the obvious - A dream is often about something other than its obvious meaning. Physical events in the dream commonly represent mental or emotional matters.
