It is quite normal to dream about your ex-boyfriend. Even if you have not dated for years, you still have memories of being together. Because of this, it is normal for dreams about your ex to happen at any point. Your dreams are made from your subconscious mind and just show your own thoughts, feelings and desires. While it can mean that you still have feelings about your ex-boyfriend, this is not necessarily the case. It could mean that you have unresolved feelings about the ex or that you need closure. Dreams about an ex-boyfriend are especially common if you have had to go through a difficult break up.

What Does It Mean When You Dream About An Ex?

Most of the time, dreaming about an ex-boyfriend does not mean that you are still in love with them. Your subconscious may make these dreams at random because of the memories that you have. The dream could also demonstrate what you want in a new relationship. Your subconscious may have chosen your ex-boyfriend to represent the love or affection that you want in the future. It may have also chosen your ex-boyfriend to show the fear that you feel about having a relationship that was just as bad as the last one. An ex-boyfriend could be a symbol of your hope for love that you are missing in your current relationship.

It is also important to look at what your ex-boyfriend is doing in the dream to figure out the meaning. A dream with an ex-boyfriend dying means something far different than a dream that your ex-boyfriend is having sex with you. You have to consider the context of the dream to discern its real meaning.

Specific Dream Meanings About Your Ex-Boyfriend

1. Dreaming That Your Ex-Boyfriend Is Dying

Death is often a sign of transformation in dreams, so dreaming about your ex-boyfriend dying probably does not mean that he is actually going to die or be injured in real life. Most likely, it shows that your subconscious is starting to move on. You recognize that he is no longer a part of your life and that he could move on to someone else. This type of dream is often a good sign that you are getting the closure that you need to heal and find a partner who is better suited to you.

2. Dreaming That Your Ex-Boyfriend Is Cheating on You

If your ex-boyfriend cheated when you were together, this type of dream could just be a throwback memory to the past. It could also represent your fear that the same type of thing could happen in your next relationship. Cheating dreams may not mean that your ex cheated though. They could also indicate that you feel betrayed by him. Since he left you, this is a natural feeling. You expected to be with him for years, and he betrayed you by leaving and no longer being someone that you could depend on.

3. Dreaming About Your Ex-Boyfriend and His New Girlfriend

This dream can represent fear or closure depending on the general ambiance of the dream. If you have moved on, then the ex-boyfriend may seem happy in the dream and you may not care that he is with another girl. If you have not actually moved on yet, the dream may indicate that you recognize that he could be with someone else and you are uncomfortable about that thought.

4. Dreaming About Your Ex-Boyfriend With Another Girl

This dream has a similar meaning to the previous one. Since the girl might not be his girlfriend, it could represent a fear that someone else got in the way of your relationship or that you are worried he could have cheated in the past.

5. Dreaming About Your Ex-Boyfriend Getting Married

Dreaming about your ex-boyfriend getting married could symbolize that you have completely moved on from the relationship and hope that he does as well. If this dream occurs immediately after a break up, it could represent a fear that he will have completely moved on in life before you can truly heal and move on yourself.

6. Dreaming About Your Ex-Boyfriend and You Getting Back Together

As you may have guessed, this dream generally shows that you still have feelings for your ex-boyfriend. It may represent a desire to be with him again or just a wish that things could have worked out differently. Unfortunately, a dream can only show your own thoughts, feelings and desires, so there is no way to know if your dream could even be possible in real life.

7. Dreaming About Your Ex-Boyfriend’s Family

When you date someone, you become an integral part of their life. After spending so much time with your ex’s friends and families, it can feel strange and lonely to suddenly be cut off from that part of your former life. This type of dream generally represents the fact that you may miss his family or that you miss being such an important part of someone’s life.

8. Dreaming About Your Ex-Boyfriend Having a Baby

A baby represents new life, hope and family. In this context, it could show that you are afraid that your ex-boyfriend will move on or that you accept that he has moved on. It could also show a fear that he will be willing to commit to someone else in a way that he was never able to commit with you.

9. Dreaming About Your Ex-Boyfriend Trying to Kill You

Death can be a transformation, but being killed in a dream is slightly different. Often, this type of dream shows that you feel like your ex limited you in life and “killed” off parts of you while you were together. It could also show that you figuratively feel as if the old you must be killed before you can move on, get closure and become the new you.

10. Dreaming About Your Ex-Boyfriend Crying

This could show that you hope or feel like your ex-boyfriend is unhappy about the break up. Often, dreaming that your ex-boyfriend is crying indicates that you feel depressed or sad about the end of the relationship, and you want him to feel just as bad about it. Unfortunately, the dream can’t show how he actually feels, so there is no way to know if he is just as broken up over the break up as you are.

    • This dream is a reflection of your emotional connection and abuses that you have suffered. Your current partner is not your previous partner. If your partner treats you will respect, then you should nourish this relationship. Determine what you want for your future. Share your kindness and compassion with your partner.

  2. I dreamt about my ex twice in a row as if I was calling him for us to meet up but he didn’t seem keen on the call and the second time it was as if I was at his place and there was another girl inside so I left. What does this mean?

    • These dreams are reflections of your previous emotional connection with this person. You may be aware that your ex is now in a new a relationship. Allow thoughts of him to fade. Focus your emotional energy elsewhere. Determine what you want for your future without him. This will reduce the frequency of similar dreams from occurring. Have a great day, Anne!

  3. I had two dreams in a row of my ex. One he was running after me trying to shoot me, then the next dream, he was involved with another female and they were having sex and I could see it and I was going crazy

    • Your dream is a reflection of your previous social and emotional connection with your previous partner. The shooting may have been a reflection of your knowledge of recent shootings and violence. The other woman may be a sign of your knowledge of his behaviors or potential behaviors. Allow thoughts of him to fade, and determine what you want your future without him. Have a great day, Lasha!

  4. I have been having sex dreams about my ex another one us him comeing to my house to say he loves me and then it jumps to a wedding and at first I though I was part of the cort but turns out I was the bride and he was the groom,and last is if ua also considering a child and at child birth were yet again he says he loves me but we both have been having these dreams what does all of this mean

    • Your dreams are reflections of your previous emotional and social connection with your ex. It is possible that you have been thinking about marriage. Allow thoughts of your ex to fade. If he reaches out to you in the future, then share your kindness and compassion with him at that time. For now, determine what you want for your future without him. Have a great day, Lala!

  5. I had a dream that it was the future and my ex texted me trying to hang out or get back together and I’ve had this same dream like 10 this year

    • This dream may be a reflection of your previous emotional connection with your ex. The two of you are no longer in a relationship, thought something in your life may have reminded you of your ex. Determine what you want for your future. Since your relationship has previously ended, you may find benefit in allowing these thoughts to fade. Have a great day, Ariana!

  6. I had a dream with 2 different ex boyfriends on different days in the same week, one ex the relationship was good, one point It was going to end but we tried it again and within days he texted me to ended without me knowing really why and the other one was bad(he cheated) but I got over it within days. I currently have a boyfriend 1 year together, I hate that hes not romantic unless I tell him to be. In my past relationships it was natural for them to be extremely romantic without me saying a word and my current bf nothing comes out of him naturally I have to tell him. He doesn’t even remember our day it is very annoying. I don’t know if these dreams mean to leave my current boyfriend which Ive thought because of the lack of emotion he gives or It means its what I want from him from what I had in every relationship that he doesn’t give me.

    • Each person is different, and the behaviors of your current partner are aspects of his character. You are aware of his behaviors, and if you can not handle that he is less romantic that your exes, then you may not be a good fit for him. Allow thoughts of your previous relationships to fade, and don’t hold your partner to the particular standards of people who you are no longer in a relationship with. If you are no longer happy in your current relationship, then end it. However, you will find great benefit in nourishing this relationship by spending additional time with him in person, as this will give you an opportunity to grow with a faithful partner. Have a great day, Hb!

  7. my ex and i still loved each other when he broke up with me as we both have other priorities to look after. However, i still dreamt of him and we were both really happy with each other when he hugged and kissed me in my dream. However in the dream, he told me, “Don’t u want to wake up?”.I didn’t want to cause i missed him so badly. I don’t know what does it mean but i really missed him day by day and its already been a month. What do i do? i woke up from my dream crying

    • Your dream is a reflection of your previous emotional connection with your ex. The two of you are no longer in a relationship, so you should allow this dream to fade. If he reaches out to you in the future, then make a decision at that time about what you want for your future. For now, focus your emotional energy elsewhere and determine what you want for your future without him. Have a great day, Joy!

  8. I had a dream that my ex boyfriends new girlfriend called me and said “hey this is such and such ex girlfriend Andrea have you talked to him?” What does this mean? Me and my ex have a baby together. But his new girlfriend isn’t named andrea.

    • Your dream is a reflection of your thoughts and feelings regarding his relationship. Andrea does not exist, so allow this dream to fade from your memory. Since you have a child with your ex, you should ensure that you spend additional time with your child. If the father is a good person and you have a good relationship with him, then have him see your child when possible. Have a great day, Courtney!

  9. I’m a college student and my ex and I had been in a sort of long distance relationship for 3 yrs. We were engaged for around a year. Before we broke up my ex and I were barley talking. We were arguing so much that we both were tired of it. He called me one day too end things. I found out he cheated and I blocked him and his family from contacting me on everything. I haven’t spoken to him since the day we broke up.
    I had a dream that he came to my school to try and kill me. The entire school was in lock down and I was hiding but I had a gun. As I was hiding I heard him say that he came for me because I was talking shit about him on Twitter. I don’t even have one. I don’t understand that. I have recently allowed myself to start taking to others again. I don’t know if this has anything to do with it.

    • Your dream could be related to the negative interaction that you had with your ex. It is also possible that your knowledge of recent shootings appeared in your dream as well. Allow thoughts of your ex to fade, and focus your emotional energy on the people who are in your life at this time. You will find many benefits in sharing your kindness and compassion at all times, as this will bring you many benefits in the future. Have a great day, Nia!

  10. I had a dream my ex was a “gunman” in the town and I was walking fine until he found me, didn’t shoot me but “branded me” tormented me for ages making me do humiliating things, get naked etc crying telling be he hates me and I’ve made him this awful person etc then everyone decides to help him cover this all up from his new wife so she doesn’t leave him a they feel bad for him 😐
    Meanwhile I faint naked on the middle of town haha crying and shaking haha.

    I wasn’t the best girlfriend to him but this was ten years ago for goodness sake.

    • Your dream is a reflection of your regrets regarding your previous relationship. The gunman aspect of the dream is also a manifestation of your knowledge of recent shootings and other violent events. Allow the negative aspects of this dream to fade. Ensure that you learn from your behaviors and do not harm your partners in the future. You will find great benefit in sharing your kindness and compassion at all times. Have a great day, Sarah!

    • Your dream is a reflection of a wide variety of influences in your life. Your sexual thoughts may be related to sexual fantasies of infidelity. The shooting aspect of this dream is a manifestation of your knowledge of recent shootings and other violent events. Abstain from consuming violent and dramatic media, as this will reduce similar dreams from manifesting in the future. Share your kindness and compassion at all times, as this will draw positive people and energy into your life. Have a great day, Coco!

  12. Hi i had a dreamed of my ex boyfriend this morning like 9-10am. Our relationship lasts for 5 years. It’s been 4 months now, he didn’t communicate with me after the break up. I saw him in my dreamed, wearing black shirt, we do vc as i showed him up with my nephew via vc (me & my nephew went in a mall that time) , then i saw a window via vc and heard a girls voice & kid. I asked him if he’s in the Philippines rn , then suddenly i saw him in a mall we met, we talked as i was surprised. I thought it was real because i totally saw his face. Like the first time i met him. I cried and asked him if he’s meeting someone else. Then he just walked away. And i saw him again on the beach but i didn’t saw his face only his back still the same he’s wearing black shirt. This is the same day i dreamed. What Does it mean? Help me pls. Thank you!

    • The two of you have not communicated for four months. Your dream is a reflection of your previous emotional relationship with your ex. Something in your life may have reminded you of him. Since the two of you are no longer maintaining a relationship, you should allow thoughts of him to fade. Focus your emotional energy elsewhere. You will draw positive people and energy into your life by sharing your kindness and compassion at all times. Have a great day, Mary!
