Why do I keep dreaming about my ex-girlfriend?

You must be wondering that though you and your ex-girlfriend have been over for a long time; why is she still there in your dreams? Why does your sleeping mind keep bringing back the images of a person a person who you tried to forget in your waking life. 

Sometimes dreams about ex-girlfriend are unexpected and weird pop ups that look strange and confusing but do carry deep-seated meaning. Several reasons are mentioned in dream dictionaries about the probable justifications behind such dreams. Few of them are discussed below:

1. Unresolved conflicts between the two of you

In most cases, dreams about an ex-girlfriend symbolizes hidden and unfinished business. Maybe you were not ready for a sudden breakup and wanted to give the relationship another chance to revive its old charm, however the reconciliation never happened. 

You are still carrying the emotional burden and feeling anxious about it in waking life. You are feeling guilty and deep within, you haven’t given up over your ex completely.

Another notable thing is, if you’re the one responsible for the breakup, the dream means that you’re feeling guilty and regretful about your behavior and hasty decisions. You should have been more mindful about your actions and your ex-girlfriend’s feelings.

Contrary, if your ex-girlfriend broke off from the relationship, then the dream represents your desire to validate your feelings in front of her. In both ways, dreaming about an ex-girlfriend symbolizes unresolved conflicts and unfinished tasks that need to be healed from inside to lead a healthy life.

2. Loneliness and mourning

You’re feeling lonely these days and your ex-girlfriend shows up in dreams to muse you with some fond memories of the past. It will make you feel happy and blessed.

If you had a very good relationship with your ex-girlfriend, she would remind you of the lost happiness, deep bonding and connection that you people had in the past.

As you are feeling alone now, your subconscious mind is revisiting a happy timeline of your previous relationship that is no longer available now. 

Moreover, if you are feeling sad and unhappy with your present relationship, and mourning the loss of the relationship with your ex-girlfriend, the dream may become a recurring occurrence every night.

3. Anxiety and worries

If you are dreaming about your ex-girlfriend quite frequently, it is usually a vivid dream that signifies your anxiety and fearfulness about the success of your present relationship.

Maybe you are concerned whether a similar pattern of relationship issues and conflicts can arise in your present relationship as well

Your subconscious mind is just trying to ensure success and stability with your present partner, wife, or girlfriend. The present relationship should not show red flags, otherwise you need to be careful this time as well.

4. Fear of being hurt again

Breakups are indeed heartbreaking and can cause immense pain and suffering. If you are having recurring dreams about an ex-girlfriend, it means you are still carrying the burden of hurts and pains with you in waking hours. You have not overcome it so far.

Thus, you are scared of being hurt again in a new relationship. Your past agonies are a reminder to change the course of your present relationship with your wife or girlfriend, so that similar problems never arise again.

5. Need for emotional closure

If your ex-girlfriend dumped you and you never had a chance to develop a deep bonding or emotional closure with another woman in your waking life, the dream symbolizes your need for emotional closure. You may feel like you’ve been rejected and humiliated.

Since you are angry and resentful in waking life, your subconscious mind is showing positive images of your ex-girlfriend just to help you relax and cool down; reminding of the good times you shared with your ex-girlfriend.

7. Seeing your ex on social media

If your ex-girlfriend is frequently showing up in your Facebook feeds and Instagram stories, you may suddenly start seeing her and the lost love all over again in your subconscious state; even if you are not thinking of her consciously in waking life.

You may feel tempted to click on the feeds and postings and know about her latest updates. The urge to stalk an old girlfriend was always present in the unconscious mind. You were always interested to know about how she is, or what she is doing now etc.

Maybe you are wondering whether she has a better life now, or how she looks now, her present relationship status and much more.

If you are seeing her a lot more these days in real life than what you have ever expected, she may also torment you in dreams frequently.

8. Missing a happy timeline of your life

When you’re dreaming about an ex-girlfriend it symbolizes that you are missing a happy timeline of your life that is no longer a part of your life now. You are missing those carefree, happy, and relaxed moments of life because there is too much stress and agony around you now. 

Your sleeping mind wants to remember those happy moments shared together with your ex-girlfriend.

Even if you are satisfied with your present partner, ex-girlfriend can show up in your dreams because you are stuck in the past timeline that gave you immense joy and excitement. You just do not want to let it go.

9. Ex-girlfriend contacted you

If your ex-girlfriend contacted you recently through a phone call or message; or through social media, it may remind you of the lost love and you can see her while falling asleep.

She may appear in your dreams unexpectedly and you might start wondering why did your girlfriend contact you after so many years? Is she alone? Is there still anything left in the relationship?

10. Walking down the memory lane

Sometimes our subconscious mind will remind us of weird images that are not related with our present waking life. Your mind brings back those happy memories that were joyful and pleasurable. You are just reliving those less stressful and easy going days of your life. 

It might be that your ex-girlfriend had left a deep imprint in your psyche and it’s hard to let go of such thoughts. The loving and fond memories of her are ingrained in your unconscious mind. Certain parts of your past pop up suddenly as a reminder to stay happy and blissful as always.
