Old Friend

Uncover Hidden Dream Meanings

To see an old friend in a dream, especially if this is one from childhood shows that you are overwhelmed or overworked in your waking life.

Often these dreams represent a desire to be more irresponsible or just wanting to have more fun in life. The relationship you had with the old friend or friends is also important. If this was a person you were close with but lost touch with, it can often mean that you are missing them. However it usually means more than that. When you see this person in a dream, other than trying to reach out to them in your waking life, you may also want to consider what aspects of your own life are affected by reconnecting with them. Usually there is something missing from your life which you desire to have back.

In this dream you may have...

  • Reunited with an old friend.
  • Wanting to see an old friend.
  • Hanging out with an old friend.
  • Being young with an old friend.
  • Calling an old friend.
  • Yelling at an old friend.
  • Imagining an old friend.
  • Needing an old friend.

Detailed dream meaning...

To see an old friend in a dream can signify parts of your personality that you have suppressed or rejected. If you are, for example, in a fight in your dream with an old friend and act childishly, this can indicate that you are not being fair or giving full credit to someone in your waking life. When you see an old friend and embrace them, then the aspects of the old relationship are what you are missing. Perhaps you do not feel that you have someone you can really talk to anymore.

Seeing old friends in dreams also represents regression in your waking life – taking steps backwards. Sometimes this is good if you have gotten too serious as an adult. It can show getting back to the basics and enjoying success and reward. If your dream is of a re connection of you and old friend, especially with a party or a joyous occasion it is a sign that good tidings are coming your way and an omen for celebration. Yelling at a friend, or be yelled at by one means all one of your old friends may contact you soon.

When you dream about an old friend that was never you friend, this is a dream that you are going to have a more active social life and is a good omen for making friends as well as networking connections.

This dream is in association with the following scenarios in your life...

  • Making friends.
  • Needing a vacation or more fun in your life.
  • Being childish.
  • Not feeling like you have someone to talk to – feeling distant from others.
  • Needing advice or lacking experiences in your life

Feelings that you may have encountered during a dream of an old friend…

Happy. Loved. Welcome. Unsure. Confused. Angry. Mad. Nonchalant. Silly. Amazed. Welcoming. Abrasive. Tenacious. Absolute. Relieved. Excited. Daring. Carefree.
