I can't believe it's actually happening. Back in high school, I dreamed of him. Now we're together and he's everything to me.
2. To envision someone or something in one's sleep. While recovering from dental surgery, I actually dreamed of all the foods I couldn't eat. Waking up was quite a disappointment! What does it mean if you keep dreaming of the same thing every night?
