Meeting the Family

Thank you for taking the time to help me interpret my dream... I had had it several times and in color.

I am walking through what looks to be a "Little House on the Prairie" scene, but rather in modern times with paved roads... Kinda like the old country you would see in the text books, like Europe or something. I go through the door with my friend Vincent and to my left there is a room with 2 barrels of hay and to my right is a room with green sofas. We both walk through the hallway together to find a long table with lots of people being happy and cheerful and eating Italian food. They act like they know Vincent and are happy to have me along. (Note: I have never even met Vincent's family in real life) He sits at the end of the table and I shyly sit to the left of him and someone serves me and him a plate of spaghetti with meatballs. He sits there and looks into my eyes and it is as if there is no body else in the room but me and him and he is trying to make me laugh and I am trying to be polite and trying NOT to laugh coz I am eating with a bunch of people I don't know, and he just continues to look into my eyes and in my dream it feels like time is standing still, and he just continues to sit there and smile at me. After leaving the table, we walk through the hall way and find our way to a room on the right with a blue blanket on the bed where we lay down. He begins kissing my forehead and we end up falling asleep in each other's arms. THEN I WAKE UP...

..And every time I have had this dream it feels so real and when I wake up I find myself looking for Vincent, like a dork.

I would really appreciate it if you could help me out. Thanks so much

Good morning, Jacquelyn.

Any time we repeat the same dream, it's likely we're not yet getting the message. But color is not quite as significant as some seem to think - everyone who can see color can dream in color. There are exceptions to this, depending upon the importance of the color in the dream, and whether you felt anything in particular upon seeing it.

You didn't include anything about your waking relationship with Vincent. From your dream, it sounds like you very much want to be closer to him - to the point that you are idealizing what his family must be like. The quaint country setting, the traditional Italian meal - these are your idea of what it would ideally be like to be in his family, and it is an ideal which looks all positive. True, you don't know the family, but they seem accepting of you.

A dream like this can have its origins in wish-fulfillment - you want something so much that you dream about it. However, it's also useful because it clearly defines how you feel about your desire - and this one is very strong. I don't get an idea of whether it's going to happen, or if it is a good thing to have happen - but it's obvious that you want the quiet romance that your dream depicts, complete with the family acceptance.

Pleasant dreams,
Peregrin
