I had this dream where I was fighting this guy from my english class because he was going to rape my girlfriend. He started taking steps toward her in my driveway then grabbed her inappropriately so I ran out and punched him in the face. He slugged me back in the chest and i lost my air. when i got my air back i fought against him using karate (which makes sense because i'm in karate, it would be my nature to use that style), and we swapped blows back and forth and then he grabbed me around the middle from behind and tried to throw me, so i jabbed his ribs with my elbow and ran backwards into a street light post and he hit his head on it and let go of me. I punched him in the head and he fell to the ground, dizzy and done fighting but not knocked out. I went back to my girlfriend and hugged her and said everything would be okay, but she was dull and lifeless, like she was soulless. I shouldn't have won that fight, he's shorter but a LOT stronger than me. what does this mean?
Dreams always mean something... even the ones we forget. Our brains are trying to work out the events that happen in our lives and sometimes they even tell us explicitly the things that we pick up on from subtle cues in conversation and body language. It's the subconscious coming to the fore.
I assume the guy from your English class also knows your girlfriend? Maybe you've been picking up on some behaviours that are agressive and threatening to her. Or maybe something else is going on in her life and she's acting differently and your mind has created this scenario to help you deal with the way she's behaving now.
I would look at the facts of the dream: a bullying rival, your need to protect, your girlfriend's trauma... and see if those situations are playing out in your life. That should help you be able to sort out the meaning. Usually putting the images from vivid dreams into the context of your life can help you define what you saw and felt.
I would keep an eye on this guy... and make sure that your girlfriend is keeping herself safe. :) Sometimes dreams are WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get), your conscious mind just doesn't want to take the hint and see what's in front of it so your subconscious has to kick you in the gut.
Hope that helps!
it means nothing dreams always come and go its just nothing i have dreams where am fighting and the guy just kicks me strait in the nuts i fall and lose i guess but thats all i think it means nothing
