If he dream-cheats on you with another woman, it's because he's attracted to one of her nonphysical qualities, like her ambition or quick wit. And if he dreams about a fictional person he's never met, pay attention to the particular sexy adventure. That's what he really wants to do--but with you.
2. Being Chased
He's feeling pressured by something, but that doesn't mean he's necessarily running away from it. The pursuer could be a symbol for something that motivates him and is merely pushing him in a certain direction.
He is overwhelmed and feels out of control, either at work or in his personal life.
4. Studying for a Test
Surprisingly, this dream becomes more frequent once guys have graduated and entered the workforce, and it's a sign of perfectionism. "It's usually a high-achiever's dream," says Holloway.
5. Being Late for an Event
