This Is What It Means If You Dream About Your Partner Cheating on You


Lifestyle | By Ian Anglin | November 28, 2017

Dreaming is a fascinating thing. Most people dream at least two or three times every night, although a large majority of dreamers don't remember their dreams. That's very sad, as remembering what you've dreamt of can be very useful if you want to uncover the things that worry or excite you the most. Dreaming about a cheating partner is just one type of dream that many people have. Today, this story is going to analyze the meaning behind this phenomenon.

Dreams Are a Reflection of the Subconscious

Scientists have figured out for a long time now that all dreams have their roots in the subconsciousness of our minds. While that means we most probably are not able to predict the future, it still means that our dreams can tell a lot of about what we feel.

Dreams Symbolize Our Worries

Since all dreams are about the emotions we feel deep inside of us, that means they often reflect the things that worry or excite us the most. Dreams about cheating are thus a symbol that there is something that worries us about our relationship.

Dreams Can Help With Interpretation

The reason why our brains have a need to "dream things through," is that often times, we can't process some of the difficult emotions that are inside of us. Dreaming of a scenario that hasn't happened is the brain's way of dealing with this uncertainty.

The Meaning of Infidelity

While no one can answer with complete certainty what a certain dream means, there are dream deduction theories that can help guide you along this path. The next photos and paragraphs are going to show what dreaming of infidelity really means.

Dreams Do Not Represent the Actions of Others

It is important to note that our dreams do not represent the actions of others. Dreams cannot show what another person is going to do. What they do show is our own image of ourselves, and what we perceive as a risk to our well-being.

Dreaming of Infidelity Does Not Mean Your Partner Is Cheating on You

A lot of people that dream of infidelity think that their partner is cheating on them - or is about to start cheating. Keeping this kind of thought pattern is not healthy for and your relationship, and in fact becoming jealous of your partner can lead them towards cheating.

The Self-Fulfilling Prophecy

Another important thing to note is about self-fulfilling prophecies. If your relationship is healthy and going according to plan, you should never change things or force your partner into "admitting" a cheating that does not even exist.

The Feeling of Being Betrayed

All dreams of infidelity are linked to a different kind of personal insecurity - that insecurity is the fear of being betrayed. Every person has this fear inside of them, but part of growing up is learning to come to terms with your insecurities, so they don't affect your life.

It Is Unfair to Your Partner

Imagine if your dream that your partner is cheating on you is wrong -and then imagine how bad your partner is going to feel when you attack them because of a cheating that never happened? In some cases doing that can even ruin your relationship.

What Are You Afraid of?

If this dream is still haunting you days or hours after it happened, you need to ask yourself what is it that you really afraid of? Are you really afraid of your partner cheating, or are you perhaps worried that you may not be good enough for the love of your life?

Trust Your Instinct

It is important to trust your gut feeling, aka your instinct in situations like this. If your partner has decided to be with you - that means that they love you, meaning you are worthy of their love, and there is no need to feel insecure.

Dreaming of Emotional Distance

If you dream of cheating on a frequent basis (meaning multiple times per month) that could mean that your partner is becoming emotionally and/or physically distant from you. You should have a talk with them if that is the case.

Projecting Distrust

Just because your partner has become more distant or cold towards you, that doesn't mean that they want to leave you or break up. Sometimes life gets in the way, and perhaps you need to make some adjustments in your relationship in order to improve it.

Healing Past Wounds

To gain more security in your relationship, you may need to begin the process of healing past wounds. Perhaps you or your partner has hurt each other in the past. If you have no properly healed from that event, you need to take the time and discuss this with your partner.

Tell Your Concerns to Your Partner

Part of the emotional healing process is to have a deep conversation with your partner. You need to tell them exactly what your concerns are, and what changes, if any, you need in your relationship. If your partner loves you, he is going to be able to accommodate your needs.

Chefs made their way into celebrity land a while ago. But how many celebrities that weren’t trained as professional cooks are actually whizzes in the kitchen? Here are several that come to mind.

II

Actress Julia Roberts is confident about her cooking skills. “I’m quite a good cook,” she told E! News. “I’m like a closet home ec teacher…I can really cook anything.” Roberts has said she often cooks fish for herself and her kids. And speaking of her three children, “They think that I’m a good cook,” Roberts told People. “They actually told me that I should open a restaurant.” She also relishes cooking for the holidays, particularly shredded Brussel sprouts. Roberts hasn’t published a cookbook, but we did find recipes attributed to her for peach crisp and banana hemp muffins. Or you can make the same summer salad the actress supposedly eats.

Chrissy Teigen started off as a supermodel. Then her love of cooking filtered into her professional life too. At this point, she’s created recipes for a limited Blue Apron release and also just launched her own home and cooking line at Target named “Cravings,” after the two cookbooks she’s released. Teigen describes cooking as “a time of peace” for herself. So maybe peace out to her tuna melt sandwich or the fried chicken wings that are a favorite of her husband, John Legend.

IV

Lady Gaga, whose real name is Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, comes from a cooking Italian family. Her father started his own restaurant in New York and also published a cookbook. And apparently, Lady Gaga has inherited the family’s cooking genes. Her Instagram account occasionally features photos of her culinary activities. Sure, sometimes it’s topless cooking. But other times it’s more poignant like in the post she shared about her bringing food to the family of her dear friend who passed away. Want to try a Gaga/Germanotta family favorite? Check out her recipe for whole wheat pasta with a sweet fennel sauce.
