I cry in my dream when it has to do with my ex boyfriend. We dated for years and we ended up falling apart from on another. I am still not over him and every time I see him in my dreams I cry and cry telling him how much I miss being with him. He would hold me in his arms and rub my head (like he used to do) and tell me everything will be just fine.
