Even if you have not dated for years, you still have memories of being together. Because of this, it is normal for dreams about your ex to happen at any point. Your dreams are made from your subconscious mind and just show your own thoughts, feelings and desires. While it can mean that you still have feelings about your ex-boyfriend, this is not necessarily the case. It could mean that you have unresolved feelings about the ex or that you need closure. Dreams about an ex-boyfriend are especially common if you have had to go through a difficult break up.

Often your mind will be revisiting the period in your life when you were with this individual. Your dream is visiting feelings and hopes that are connected with your ex. If you are dreaming of being in your twenties and married for the first time, your mind is recreating that happy experience and memory that you had in those years. Maybe you had an ex-boyfriend that was great with your family, while your current boyfriend is cold toward others.
