Other people's dreams are never interesting…except when they're about sex. Each week, EMandLO.com's dream analyst Lauri Loewenberg tells one lucky reader what their dirty dream means (after the jump). This week, a woman asks Lauri:
To start you must know the characters in my dream, there were only two… me and my male neighbor (I live in a townhouse, so he's really close). In real life a week ago, we had sex. We've never dated, he seemed to fancy me, so I invited him over to my place for a movie. Well, we never watched the movie and one thing led to another, it was cheap sex on the couch, then he left. I felt it went too fast and was a mistake, clearly he isn't right for me. That next week I tried to contact him and invite him on a hike or something via email and phone but couldn't get communication going. His last email read, "I'm laying low for now I want to get back with my girlfriend Donna." I haven't talked to him since.
So… Last night I was dreaming he was in bed with me wanting to give me a massage - no sex involved, he promised. I was very sleepy and just wanted to fall asleep peacefully. I finally took off my clothes and lay there, he spooned me and I told him to get out and go home! He jumped in the shower for 5 seconds, I thought that was a very short shower. I sat in the chair in the bedroom and put on a shirt and was about to put on some pants when he came in the room and fired I think about 5 shots in my chest. I actually felt the blood ooze down my crossed arms, it seemed so real. Then I softly said "I knew it."
Startled with this, I woke up and had trouble getting back to sleep. This is the first time I was shot like that in a dream and knew who it was doing the shooting. I wondered in those waking hours if this dream was telling me something to beware of with him. I live alone and am very frightened now. Please help.
