dreams & the BLOW OFF

Does this sound familiar? You run into the person that blew you off and they tell you how much they regret hurting you, how much they miss you, and how much they want you back. All the emotions come flooding back, you tell them you still have feelings for them too, and then...BAM. You wake up. It was just a fucking dream!

So, not only does this suck, because A. the person that blew you off doesn't in fact want you back, but B. Now, you are missing them all over again. You thought you were over them, but that stupid dream felt SO real. The last thing you needed was a reminder of what your ex looked like, smelled like, sounded like...but thanks to your subconscious, that's what you got.

Then, (if you're a girl) you inevitably start wondering if this dream was some sort of a sign or a premonition that the two of you are meant to be together. Chances's not.

My ex-boyfriends still pop into my dreams here and there and I don't know if I'll ever get rid of them. I seriously think I'll be eighty years old and still have a dream about that random guy I dated during the turn of the century. Lame! The only thing that comforts me is that maybe somewhere out there, I'm randomly popping into some guy's dream and reminding him of my awesomeness.

But maybe it's okay. As much as we'd like to get rid of them, our exes are permanent fixtures in our past and maybe crossing paths with them in our dreams is better than running into them in real life. And look on the bright side, if old loves didn't pop into our dream states, Nelly wouldn't have written this incredibly catchy song. I mean, how awesome is the giant floating wedding ring in this video?


  1. I love/hate when that happens!

  2. Only someone who is already engaged- cough, cough -- would write something like this:

    "Maybe crossing paths with them in our dreams is better than running into them in real life."

    Oh, how easy it is to forget how palpable the heartache can be!

  3. hahaha, shhhh O. I've got a rep to protect. I only think it's better in the dream state, because I don't need any guys making me all confused in the flesh. cause at least in my dreams i usually look good, but in real life i only run into people i've dated when i look like crap!
