What It Means To Dream About Cheating With Your Jerk Ex


This week, we have a submission from Eloise* who dreams about cheating on her perfect boyfriend with her shitty ex:

Here's Lauri's interpretation:

Having a dream about an ex sucks. Pretty sure we've all been there.

And if you're some sort of emotionless robot who has somehow managed to bypass this horrible experience, let me paint you a picture of what it feels like.

It's like you're FINALLY managing to get through days without even thinking about him, when he texts you saying he "misses" you. Yeah, that feeling.

The feeling is even WORSE when you're in a loving, happy, new relationship with someone who's not your shitty ex. Not only do you feel like a pathetic loser who is, somehow, not over her ex, but you also feel added guilt for being an evil dream cheater.

But luckily for anyone having this dream, Lauri seems to think it doesn't actually make you a pathetic loser who's not over her ex and who's also an evil dream cheater.

Take the dream as what it is: a warning. Deal with the problems that are buried deep in the back of your subconscious and get rid of those creepy dreams once and for all.

I hope this was helpful to Eloise and anyone else who may have had a similar dream.
