For the past year my boyfriend has been having dreams about his ex-girlfriend. It’s not a daily occurrence but about every three or four months he has a dream about her. In his dream they are always arguing or fighting over something. The latest dream was she gave him a letter to read and it said that she was getting engaged and then he crumpled the letter and shoved it down her throat and then punched her. He is always mean to her in the dream and angry.
The last time they saw each other was a few months before he left for Iraq. They dated for about five years so I know they have a lot of history together but she broke his heart and he just has a lot of anger toward her still.
I started dating him right before he left for Iraq, also. He has been home from Iraq for about four months now and I figured the dreams would stop. But I would really like to know why he dreams of her and what it means.
I know he loves me very much and we are very open about everything. He always tells me his dreams when he remembers them and I am not sure if he wants me to know that he hates her or that he just wants to remind me that she is still in his mind.
