Cheat Cheated Cheating
Being dishonest with yourself. Not living up to your real feelings. Feelings about being betrayed or your trust abused in some way.
This can also be about acting in a way that takes advantage of another person to win; feeling one’s partner is ‘cheating’ on you, or you on them; taking love, money or opportunity under false pretences; not giving as good as you get; feeling you are not respected.
Some dreams are about social situations, such as being cheated by ones employer by not being fairly paid, or not getting your money’s worth in what you have paid for. But we might feel cheated by life events as well.
At times, as when we dream of a partner cheating, it is about feelings of suspicion, distrust or of not being loved or respected.
Example: Last night I had a dream that I was coming through a door way to find that my girlfriend/fiancée was kissing a guy….. and she looked up at me and just said we were over and I started crying begging her to stay with me, and she just kept walking away like I didn’t matter anymore… she started kissing that guy again like they had been dating for a while or something and acted like it didn’t bother me… I woke up crying because it felt real… would you have any idea what this mean?
Example: In my dream I’m with my ex girlfriend (who I still hang out with) we are hanging out being really close and lovey on each other. Then I leave the room for something and when I come back she is with a man. In this reoccurring dream she is always with a different guy and I don’t know who any of them are. When I walk in they are really close to each other and holding hands sometimes she is sitting on his lap. In my dream it always breaks my heart and I tell her how I feel and she acts like she doesn’t care. Then I wake up. In real life we were together for 2 years and I’m a girl. While we were together she cheated on me with men. We still hang out today but we are just friends with benefits.
This type of dream is usually from a young woman who either sees her boyfriend with another man or has powerful suspicions that he is seeing someone else. The dreamer is actually meeting her unresolved feelings of jealousy, of feeling not as good as the other person and not being lovable. Please see Ages of Love; Infidelity
