The Case of the Vanishing Partner
You're carried away by passion in the arms of a lover who knows how to do everything just the way you like it. You feel uninhibited, safe, swept away. Just as your thoughts seem to melt and you're losing yourself in the feelings, the intensity lessens. You reach for your partner and try to move into them again, but they seem to be disappearing. In fact, the partner, like a ghost, is just vaporizing. He or she is turning into fog and disappearing, leaving only traces in the air. This dream is a picture of passion that is frustrated due to lack of an adequate partnership. This doesn't mean necessarily that you are alone in life, but that at the times when you most want to connect or be spontaneous, the answering response just isn't there for you. Women report more dreams of this sort than do men, and they appear to have more dreams that reflect sexual and romantic frustration than do men.
This is more than a report on frustration. This dream can offer profound clues about what you need to feel fulfilled in a relationship. Whether it's spontaneity, respect, being known for yourself, or being found desirable, this quality is something you need to foster in the connections you form. Being aware of what really matters to you, what allows you to feel connected, is important. Not only does it motivate you to help create this in relationships, but it may help you to recognize and treasure connections in which this experience is present.
