Do many other people get a lot of recurring dreams? I have two dreams that occur quite often, and several others that are also frequent, but I always find it weird that I have the same exact dream over and over again (my nightmares are another story, but they are also very frequent).
My most frequent dream is of me flying in some sense. I am either jumping high into the sky, or I am skating through the sky as if I am an ice skater.
The next one is of me swimming in a clear blue ocean that has a lot of sea animals everywhere, peacefully swimming along. I am often swimming next to huge whales, or with dolphins, or surrounded by beautifully clear blue depths. It's weird in the sense that I am deathly afraid of the ocean. I rarely go in any deeper than my knees because I always think a shark is going to jump out and eat me. But I guess my subconscious realizes that 'What the heck woman, you are SCARED of the ocean. Be SCARED now!' and so my ocean dreams then transform into having menacing sharks and me somehow drowning.
I heard from random people that sometimes dreams are representations of what we are missing or wanting in our real lives. I don't know how the ocean and flying dreams have anything to do with what I want in my life because I am deathly afraid of heights and the ocean...But I suppose it correlates better to the dreams in which I have someone that romantically wants me or has me.
I've only had one boyfriend in my life, and briefly dated another guy. I suppose this number would be greater if I was allowed to date before I went to college, but whatever. I don't feel ashamed by the fact that I don't date much. Especially since it has only been about two years since I have entered the dating world. But it doesn't stop me from wanting someone to care for me and take care of me. Not many of my other friends have boyfriends, but the ones who do are always taking about the new boyfriend off the month.
But still, the dreams in which there is a guy who slowly starts to like me because of my wit and charm (HA!) are the ones I love best. I could do without the whole love at first sight B.S. and chic flicks leave me screaming "CHEESE!! CHEESE!!! WHY IS THERE SO MUCH CHEESE?!!" to the point where my girlfriends never go to a romantic comedy with me (thank god...).
I suppose you could say that my favorite dream of all time was the one in which I was a detective, and for some unknown reason, was living my life as a boy because I didn't think girl detectives were respected. My partner didn't know I was a female but always found me hilarious and amusing. There was some weird case that I can't remember we had, but he started liking me in a way that he thought inappropriate because he thought I was a guy and he was straight. But it got to the point where he threw away his inhibition and confessed to me (I get butterflies just remembering it...sigh...) saying he didn't care I was a guy, but he loved me
and then took me away to be thoroughly ravished.
