The Meaning and Interpretation of Dreams About Ex-Friends

Written By Jamie Young

The meaning of dreams about ex-friends depends on the other symbols and images you experience during the dream. Dreams about ex-friends are most often connected to your innermost thoughts and feelings. They are a way for your subconscious to tell you things you may be ignoring, which is why they can come true.

What Does It Mean to Dream About an Ex-Friend   

If you’re dreaming about an ex-friend, your subconscious is telling you to forget about being friends. The end of a friendship isn’t always about anger, jealousy, or betrayal. Sometimes people grow apart and just have different interests and life directions. If you dream about your ex, it’s often a sign that you need to move on from a relationship and think about other areas of your life.

Dreaming about your ex-best friend indicates that you are trying to push them out of your life, but you can’t seem to do it. This can be because they still have access to parts of your life, so it’s hard to forget about them. Alternatively, this dream might also just mean that you miss this person and you’re still dealing with unresolved feelings.
