Dream from the mailbag:
I recently had a dream the other night that just stood out to me and I was wondering if you could help me.
I was with this boy and we were sitting on a couch. I was snuggled up in a blanket and he was kinda laying on me, looking at me. I could see his face just plain as day but in real life I have never met this person or seen him on TV or anything. He had dark brown, curly hair and vibrant blue eyes and he had a little facial hair. That’s all I remember of it and I know it isn’t much but I was just curious to who this person is supposed to represent or what he is supposed to mean, if anything. Your help would be greatly appreciated.
I can relate to your experience of dreaming of unrecognizable people. I have had two recent dreams where I was with people whose faces where new to me that instantly came to mind, so hopefully my experience will be of some help to you when trying to figure out who this boy is. .

Consider the idea that this dream reflects a life event. The boy in the dream could be a subconscious interpretation of an interaction you had or will have with a boy you know. This boy, may be a love interest, it may be your brother. It is a young man in your life. You guys are on the couch, not a bed for example, so one might presume that this relationship is still in the cordial stages, possibly platonic, likely a friend.

Being snuggled up in a blanket, makes me think that you were perhaps protecting yourself from this person by acting cold toward him. Him laying on you, makes me think that he was ‘laying it on thick’ or that you felt some sort of pressure from him. He just wanted to look at you, meaning, you have his attention.

Sometimes people we know appear to us in dreams in different ways. This may be for any number of reasons, for instance the dream character may appear to have curly hair and blue eyes because this describes the way you are looking at this person and not what they actually look like. You see, the dream boy is a metaphor for a real boy and if I am correct, look for characteristics that match your description; blue eyes could be symbolic of his ability to connect or communicate to you with his eyes; the little facial hair might suggest he is a little scruffy, rugged or rough around the edges. The dark brown curls… I’ll let you tie that one together.
All in all, my guess is your dream is reflecting either recent a life event with a guy or one that will occur in the very near future. Either way, consider the idea that you perhaps you felt comfortable and protected but possibly came off a little cold. Maybe you felt pressured or intimidated by this situation or this person, when in reality, he was only getting a good look who you really are.
Hope this helps!
