I've always had pretty intense dreams, and I remember at least one dream every night. It's not uncommon for me to dream about the people around me, however these dreams have been bothering me! I've been having dreams almost nightly for a few weeks now that involve me having sex, going on dates, or just having other various intimate times with a male friend of ours. He isn't someone I see more often than any other friends. I am very happy in love and have no desire to be unfaithful to my husband, but these dreams are making me feel a little... strange toward this friend! He is one of our single friends, fairly attractive and the type I would normally "go for", which is not surprising considering he is our friend. I don't have "feelings" for him.
I am not the type to read a lot into dreams, either. However, I just don't know that much about the brain and how/why we dream to get a grasp on why my brain is doing this.
So, any suggestions? Anecdotes? Anecdata? Are you a dream specialist or a psychologist? I occasionally see a therapist for stress, but I am otherwise mentally and physically healthy and happy as far as I know. How do I stop having sex dreams about this particular friend?
