If you dream about cheating, first: Relax. Cheating dreams don’t necessarily mean that your relationship is at its peak. It’s something you should be curious about because every single thing in our dreams means something. Your subconscious is probably telling you something – or trying to get you through – something. Because the dream of cheating is one of the most common dreams that people have, we bring you this cheating crib sheet.
It usually involves one of these underlying issues. Emotional Dissatisfaction: It is less about the physical connection and more about the psychological or emotional connection that sex represents, the emotion you experience in the dream is very real and comes from a very real place. Your plan of action is to discern exactly what that emotion is. Common culprits? Feeling guilty, insecure, jealous, bored, anxious, angry or overwhelmed. Sexual dissatisfaction: While most cheating dreams they are not about real sex, some are. Dreams about infidelity can occur when there is some uneasiness about your sexual relationship.

When you dream that your partner cheated on you…
Dreaming about your lover cheating on you is much more common than dreaming about your partner cheating on you. Let’s start there. Here are some common scenarios where your partner is cheating in your dream state, as well as what they might indicate.
1. If your partner is cheating with a stranger.
You’re probably upset because you’ve been cheated out of valuable time and attention: Did they put in more hours than usual? Could it be that they have been spending too much time on the internet or playing World of Warcraft? Is it true that they recently joined the band?
2. If your partner is cheating with an ex.
You can have this dream even if you are 100% sure that your lover loves you and will not leave you: In general, this is a sign that you are envious of your ex’s possessions. Maybe it’s their sense of style or confidence. Maybe your ex knew about your crush in college, but you didn’t.
3. If your partner is cheating with someone you are close to.
Is there a good relationship between your partner and this person? If not, the dream could be a sign that you value them getting along. Otherwise, consider what this individual possesses and reflects what you desire. How are your finances? Do you have a good sense of humor? is it a baby
4. If your partner is cheating with someone else you know.
It most likely has nothing to do with your partner. Instead, it has everything to do with “the other.” What does this guy have that you don’t?
So, what if you are a fraud…
There is no reason to panic! Dreams in which you are a fraud often indicate that you feel guilty, that you have betrayed yourself, or that you have compromised your ideals or beliefs in some way. Interested in learning more?
1. If you are cheating with a stranger.
You’re probably the one splitting your focus in too many directions in this case. What causes you to have less energy for your partner? You probably have a bad feeling about it.
2. If you cheat with your ex.
Understandably, this makes you feel strangely guilty. The good news: Just because you don’t want/shouldn’t get back with your ex in your conscious state doesn’t mean you really do/should.
Instead, consider what you’re still fixing from your previous relationship and how you might carry that over into this one. It could be an actual act of infidelity or another form of betrayal or an emotionally hurtful comment or dynamic.
3. If you are cheating with someone your partner is close to.
Explore how their relationship with their partner makes you feel. Your dream probably indicates a desire to get closer to someone your partner is close to.
4. If you are caught in the act.
What do you feel guilty about? This dream says that it is time to clear your consciousness or take ownership of something that you have been hiding.
5. If you are cheating with someone who is also in a relationship.
No, you probably don’t actually want to be that other person. They probably have some of the qualities you’re looking for in a long-term buzz.
6. If you are about to get married or are newlyweds.
Whenever you have a dream about cheating before a life or relationship milestone—such as a wedding, moving house, or engagement—think feeling in a dream, not in real cheating. Is it excitement? Nervousness? Fear?
For a long time, the purpose of dreams has been a controversial issue. There are many opinions about why we have dreams and what they mean. Excess tension, thoughts or emotional energy can be released through dreams. Others claim that dreams can reveal information about your thoughts and hidden emotions.
If you’re in a romantic relationship, waking up to find you had a dream involving infidelity or cheating can be upsetting and make you feel insecure about your relationship. If you’re single and having nightmares about cheating (with an ex or a complete stranger), it can be just as confusing to figure out what’s going on in your mind.
