Dream Of A Dead Ex-boyfriend (Former Lover Dream)
An ex-boyfriend killed himself this past June. We hadn't spoken since he moved away almost 9 years ago. At one point we were very close. We started as friends and then dated for about two and a half years (lived together for over a year). After breaking up, he would stop by randomly (semi stalking) for another 6 to 8 months. Eventually we had a huge fight and we decided we couldn't be friends. We decided to take time completly apart and then we would be friends after we were both over each other. Neither of us ever made an effort so that never happened.

I would think about him occassionally before but since he died, I have had several dreams about him. I always wake up very sad and thinking about him. I honestly can't remember the dreams but they always involved hm being alive.

Last night I dreamed he called and asked if I wanted to hang out. We went to a park but I don't remember us talking about anything really. I guess we just sat on a bench next to each other (can't really remember). The next day, my mom had to stop by his house to set up an appointment for him to come over so he could do some repairs on the house. I don't remember much about that but do remember my mom wanted new window screens ordered (he had never done home repair and didn't worked for my parents in real life). I went with her to his house but we again didn't really talk. We stode outside and him and my mom talked. I remember wanting to ask him to go see a movie with me but didn't want to ask to soon (didn't want him to think it was a date) or wait to long that he was busy. I also remember being afraid he didn't have any money for the movies (I guess because he had been dead). I think I woke up before asking him to hang out. I really don't remember much abour the dream but when I woke up, I know I had really wanted to see him and hang out with him again.

I guess I am wondering what the dreams mean and why I am dreaming about him. Does anyone think it is becuase he is trying to contact me?

I had a semi similar situation just happen. I was with someone for about a year and a half. We were friends before that, and were inseparable. We basically lived at each others apartments. We broke up just over a year ago. A few days after Christmas this past year, he killed himself. Even though we werent together, I still cared about him and wished he knew that I could have been there for him. Since then I've had dreams about him. I could never remember much about them until the last one, which occurred about a month ago. I havent had one since.
In the dream, I had just woken up and he was standing at the foot of my bed. I knew he was dead, he did too, and I asked him "why did he do it, told him regardless of everything I would have been there for him, Suicide is permanent, etc." He grabbed me and put his arms around me, put my head on his chest and just said "shhh". I asked him to stay for awhile and he did, but he kept saying he had to go. I asked him to stay with me until I fell back to sleep, and he did. When I woke up in the dream, he was gone, and I was happy.

Then when I woke up, I was relieved. I believe that it was his way of telling me that he was ok, and that I couldnt blame myself for the situation.

I think right now its easier to think about him because of learning the news and your subconsious relays that in your dreams. Its also a part of grieving because even though its been years since you've talked, the loss of someone that you care/cared about is always hard.

Also if you still have feelings about him and never told him that might be the meaning of the whole wanting to ask him to the movies thing and not getting to it. You didnt get a chance to ask him, because of other factors and then you never went. If you had feelings for him, maybe you never told him because of whatever the reason, and now you know you cant.

If that is the case, I found that writing a few letters to my ex helped. I sent them to his email, I know it'll never be read, but it was my way of telling him what I was feeling so I could start coping with it, and grieve. You might want to do that, or even in a journal.
