According to my experience in all these years interpreting dreams I can tell you that dreaming of your former romantic (partner boyfriend or girlfriend, husband or wife) usually reflects the emotions and attitudes you harbor over your romantic past.
Having this type of dream suggests that something or someone in your life is triggering similar feelings you had in the past when you were with your ex-partner.
Keep in mind that dreaming about your ex-partner doesn’t necessarily mean you want to get back with him (or her). This type of dream is common I see every day in my social networks; that’s right, that’s why you should not be ashamed if you dream of your ex having a new partner in the present, since your previous romantic experiences are part of your emotional past.
In some cases I have noticed that this dream is presented for the dreamer to self-examine or evaluate her current sentimental state and her future choices or decisions in the romantic aspect of her life. Particularly, if your ex hurt you deeply, you may be still dreaming of him from time to time as a reminder of bad decisions you shouldn’t repeat or the type of man or woman you should stay away from.
Dreaming that you argue with your ex
