I Forgot My Boyfriend’s Name!
I’m waiting for my boyfriend (in the dream I have a boyfriend/ my love who I am waiting to see. He’s coming to meet me and we've agreed to meet at this particular place). I think I am in a train station. I’m laying down on a bench and a strange homeless man comes up to me. He’s scary and wild looking. I don’t remember exactly what he said to me but he basically said he was following me and something bad was going to happen soon. He's so creepy. He leaves but instantly I think that “I need to get away”. I think to myself that I need to protect myself. If there is a strange homeless man here I am not safe and my boyfriend would want me to be safe.
So I ran away from that place and found myself in another place. Not too far but where I think it is safe enough to wait it out. I am with my best friend, meeting these people at a cafe. She offers me a ride in her car but says “Havilah, it will probably take a long time to get there” I am worried I won’t get to my boyfriend in time but I trust that she at least could get me going in the right direction. Others try to encourage me and give me advice about how to get back to the place for my assigned meeting with my boyfriend, but they are not familiar with the area where I need to meet him anyway. They try to give directions but no one seems to understand or have any urgency.
It was at this time that I realized I had forgotten my boyfriend's name. This worries me.
Later in the day I am with my family at a hotel. They are all wanting to help me where I need to go. By now, I am worried and anxious. My mom comes in and says she’s helped pack my bags for me. I look inside the bag she’s brought for me and there are only accessories in the bag - no basic clothes that can actually be useful. I tell her no I don’t need these I will pack my own bag. This isn’t practical at all.
Finally, I realize that I am so far from my original location - another state away. I need to get there myself since it is getting late and no one is really helping me anyway. I decide to call my boyfriend and explain my situation and tell him I so want to see him but I have gotten myself lost. I need his help.
I go to my phone to call him and then I realize again “I’ve forgotten his name!” I’m searching through my phone’s contacts and showing the phone to everyone - is it this one? This one? No one else knows him and I realize that I have forgotten his name too. I’m totally dejected and worried and decide to just call the first one that feels right.
I wake up before I know what happens.
