Why Do You Have Dreams About Sex With an Ex?
Firstly, it's important to note, that you are definitely not the only person to be having dreams about sex with an ex. In fact, it's extremely common and most people will experience it at one point or another. However, that probably doesn't explain why you are dreaming about someone you are no longer with. The chances are, you no longer have feelings for your ex and you may even be with someone new. Which is why it can be a huge surprise when you wake up to find you've had a sexual dream about them. Luckily, there's no need to be alarmed.
Having dreams about sex with an ex doesn't necessarily mean you want to get back with him or her. Instead, it could suggest an underlying fear that your current relationship is moving in the same direction; this doesn't need to be related to sex or love, it could be related to any part of the relationship. It is natural for us to worry that history is repeating itself when we notice similarities between relationships, and this can sometimes manifest itself in the form of a dream.
Another reason for having dreams about sex with an ex is that you are not completely over the relationship; this could be likely if the breakup happened recently. Again, this is a total natural reaction and it doesn't mean you want the person back. Instead, it highlights that you're missing the closeness you had with him or her. Unsurprisingly, dreaming about having sex with an ex could mean that you do have feelings for them. Whether you're aware of it or not, it isn't uncommon for feelings like these to exhibit themselves in the form of a sexual dream.
