Whether this type of dream happens regularly or just as a one-off, it can often throw you off and leave you feeling confused. But it doesn’t always mean that you want to get back together with him/her as some people would have you believe.
Many possible reasons
If this dream only occurs once, it may be as a result of something that happened during the day. If you are single, it may mean that you are missing something from your life, emotionally speaking. This happens all the more if the relationship lasted quite a long time.
But if you repeatedly have this dream, it might mean that you haven’t really moved on. You may miss certain parts of their personality, certain memories you shared together, your intimate relationship or even what happened as a result of your break up.
However, there is another interpretation. For example, it is possible that, if you are now in a new relationship, there could be similarities, so your unconscious mind is trying to warn you not to make the same mistakes again or is even trying to heal some (still) open wounds.
In reality, your subconscious is comparing your past relationships to your current relationship. Maybe there's something missing from your current relationship. Maybe your current partner is lacking that unexplainable something.
An opportunity for self-improvement
In any case, you should take this dream as advice from your unconscious mind to focus on the personality traits of your partners that make or made you happy.
Finally, try to figure out which meaning applies to you so that you can better understand why you are dreaming about your ex.
