Would love help interpreting this dream. Ok, little background info. This guy and I both are really attracted to each other, but he has a girlfriend and is having a tough time ending that relationship. I've told him I can't see him until that is over. I had a really weird dream about him last night and would love help interpreting it.
I was in some sort of European style city - old churches, small cobblestone streets, cobblestone squares, old buildings. My friends and I were at a restaurant, in the back in an outdoor area. I went outside for some reason and thought I saw this guy I like. I thought that it wasn't time for us to meet again, that I wasn't ready. I turned around and headed back inside, I could feel him following me. I weaved my way back through the restaurant, just as I reached my friends outside I could feel a hand on my shoulder. I turned around and it wasn't the guy I like. The stranger asks if he can talk to me. We then headed outside of the restaurant. He says that his is the guy I like's best friend. The guy is heavy set, tall thin face, lighter hair, no facial hair. He said that he came to find me. That the guy I like is miserable without me. That he loves me. He said that I needed to come with him because he is going to get us together. He said that all we needed to do was meet, kiss and that'll be it. I don't know if I'm ready, but decide to take a leap of faith and go with the best friend.
I go with the best friend to where the guy I like is. He's with other friends and his girl friend. He is surrounded by his friends, the gf is off to one side with some friends. The best friend walks up to him (I'm next to him) and says that there is someone that he wants him to meet. The guy I like turns around and stops stunned when he sees me. I'm surprised since he has gained a ton of weight, he's pretty fat. But none of that matters - we are both instantly lost in each other, the connection and attraction still really strong. Suddenly I knew I was ready to see him again.
I say "hey." He says "hey" back and then holds out his arms and says "can I get a hug?" I say yeah, step forward, wrap my arms around him, he wraps his arms tightly around me and presses his cheek to my forehead. I could just feel love oozing from him. He whispered he missed me and I whispered I missed him too. Finally we break apart still staring at each other for a few more moments.
I turned back to the best friend, he says that I was supposed to kiss him. I said he didn't kiss me. He tells me to just grab his face and kiss him. He then pushes me into the guy I like. I take his face between my hands and kiss him deeply. He's stunned for a second, then wraps his arms around me and crushes me to him and gives me a deep passionate kiss. Again the world shrinks to just us. We end the kiss and just smile knowingly at each other. All his friends and the gf are watching us.
Suddenly a giant dog that belongs to him (in real life he doesn't have a dog) get loose. the dog is huge (about the size of a great dane). He has brown/gold hair, it's a short haired dog. I say I can find him and run after the dog. I run through winding streets and finally come upon the dogs standing in an open and not too crowded square. I grab the dog by it's collar and hold it tight. It's a really strong, big dog. I look back and the guy I like hasn't arrived yet. I think "hurry up, I can't hold him for forever, he's really strong." Then the dog yanks hard and gets away again. The chase resumes. He finally stops in a crowded space. I grab his collar and say "sit". The dog does. The dog likes me, he and I are close. He licks me and now behaves better for me - no pulling at the collar. He seems happy I am around. I go the feeling I had a better/more special bond with the god than the gf or most of the guy I likes' friends.
This time the guy I like is close behind and arrives quickly. All the extra weight is gone and he now looks like his normal self. He gives me a hug and a kiss. It felt like there are very few people this dog would listen to/behave for/let catch them. It was like the dog and I had a special bond. Everyone else then arrives.
We all go and sit down in a restaurant at a long table. The guy I like is at one end and his current gf is all the way down at the other end. On one side are a few friends, the best friend, myself and then a few more friends. the gf hasn't said mush, but I can feel her staring at me. She obviously knows, but I don't care. I know they're over and he's ready to make the break.
I look at my food and I have no appetite - I feel it's time for action (on my part). I get up, walk over to him and bend down and whisper in his ear. I tell him it's time for him to make a decision. That it's me or her. What we have is real, true, amazing love. That I firmly believe we are soulmates. That being together we would at times challenge each other, but it would only make the relationship more rewarding. That I wanted him to know that I love him and wanted to give him the freedom to choose. The freedom to choose us. Because that's what amazing relationships are based on - freedom - that's what makes them work. And that's one thing that would make ours so great, we both let each other be free to be who we are but we also have so many interests in common and have so much fun together. I then kiss his check and whisper that I have faith in him to choose us.
I then leave the restaurant. I felt powerful. I felt the power I have from his love and our connection. I knew what between them was over. The best friend comes running after me ecstatic saying that it went perfectly and that he;s going to do it, pick us and finally make the break with her and we will be so happy.
Then I woke up. So that's the strange, rather detailed dream. Sorry it's so long. Would love anyone's take on it. I woke up and the dream just felt important - like the universe was trying to tell me things or show me lessons to learn.
Thanks so much for the help!
