How many times have you woken up in the middle of the night due to a dream of your ex-partner? Even if you're married, visions of an individual you spent years with my pop into your head once you fall asleep. After all, you still have memories of the time you had together.
That being said, there are a few interpretations that can be made about this type of dream. First, the Huffington Post claims that dreams about exes may indicate that you aren't completely over how the situation ended.
"That doesn't necessarily mean that you're meant to be together - or that you actually have to be around that person to deal with these issues," Ally Mead, who studied dream analysis at the Jungian Institute, told the source. "For example, if you're entering into a relationship with a new person, your psyche may still be trying to sort out the pluses and minuses of your old relationship. In this situation, your psyche is trying to ensure success with your new relationship."
The key to ending these dreams is to come to terms with your feelings on the matter and put them in the past.
