Dreaming about being unfaithful suggests that you take a better look at your current relationship. What was the person in your dream giving you (emotionally or otherwise) that your real life partner does not? Communicate effectively and begin to develop those areas of your relationship that most need improvement. Understanding this dream may assist you in understanding your relationship and the level of attachment to your partner. Many people write about “dreams of cheating.” Either they are cheating, or they believe that their partners are cheating on them. In either case, they are upset and outraged by such dreams. It seems logical that these types of dreams are connected to feelings of inadequacy or dissatisfaction.
