Falling in love (infatuation) with a dream person.

I've had the experience occasionally of having a dream about someone and then waking up feeling a very strong longing and attraction for them. It can be a person I've encountered casually in real life, or someone who I knew only from the dream. If it's a real person, I may not have been aware I had any such feelings for them. The feeling can last for a few hours or go on for some days. How common is this phenomenon? Have any of you had a similar experience? Is there a name for it? Has it been studied?

Why do any therapists trust The Interpretation of Dreams?

I'm reading Freud's The Interpretation of Dreams, and the jumps he makes in interpreting dreams -- from a dream image to someone's long-ago memory to some quote to another quote to a childhood wet-nurse -- strike me as absolutely ludicrous. How and why do any therapists put any faith in this method of interpretation (I know many don't)?

Dream a little dream

Two nights ago I woke up whlie I was in a vivid dream. Last night, just before I fell asleep, the previous night's dream came back to me out of nowhere. Not a repeat, but more of a " previously on" moment like TV shows do. Has anyone else experienced this or know what causes it ? Sure, there's some [more inside]
