Hi BunnyGirl

Yes, some people definitely do dream, I have always had the most vivid and symbolic dreams. I have also had precognitive dreams.

Yes, I believe that most people dream, depending on the day or how they are feeling can cause you to dream.. I would like to believe that most of my dreams are nice dreams..

Me too Lulu, there are times I dream so intensly I wake up exhausted.

I dream every night.
I occasionally have quite intense dreams as wh describes, but mostly are just fragments. .. except the ones I call 'frustration' dreams where I'm trying to get things done and everyone is being really unhelpful or I can't find a toilet (but then I wake up and go to the loo!)

I thought everybody had dreams during part of their sleep cycle but most of them are forgotten when you wake up - I think the theory is that the "memory storage" function of your brain is not usually operating during REM stage of sleep, when you are dreaming.

I rarely know that I've been dreaming unless it's been very intense and I've woken up mid-dream or if I've had one of those "lucid dreams" when I'm asleep but somehow aware that I'm dreaming and can sometimes direct some of the events in the dream. Even then, I don't usually remember the details after I wake up.

I do dream and sometimes have a dream that is repeated a few days/weeks later. .
The most idiotic dream is me going to a warehouse where bathrooms are displayed and me desperate for using the loo use the one on display.
Judance what would Freud say to that?

Sometimes a dream is so real that I can not tell the difference between reality and dream. perhaps too much wishful thinking?

I had a dream the other night about being away on a line dance holiday in Columbia. Our line dance teacher said that to get back over the border, we would have to prove we were line dancers and he showed us the dance we had to do. I told him, I wouldn't be allowed out of the country, because I couldn't do that dance and asked if we could do my favourite (for information it's called Stanryck!!). Nope can't do that one, I was advised. I wasn't allowed out of Columbia!

Told my line dance teacher about this dream at class on Monday and he did the dance Stanryck in class just so that I could get over the border in my head! So funny!

Mmmm, i think we went for a meal and a drink, i think we split the bill but i'm not sure, i know i offered to pay as i always do but as for a HonestBob type reward I’m sure i kissed her on the lips but i’m not sure if it was an Australian or a French kiss but my lips were really salty the next morning or was it something on my tongue ;-) ha ha

Yes, dreams do happen, but some people just dont remember anything at all the next morning. My ex was like that, he believed he did not dream, but I could tell that he did - he would talk, move around, sigh etc

When I used to tell him my dreams he said I was a nutcase and they would take me away !!

When I think back to the past it can be difficult to know if some things actually happened or I dreamt them.
