To dream of love or being in love suggests intense feelings carried over from a waking relationship. It refers to your contentment with what you already have and where you are in life. On the other hand, the dream may be compensatory and implies that you may not be getting enough love in your life. We naturally long for the sense to belong and to be accepted. To dream that you are being told that you were never loved refers to your own personal feelings of being unworthy. Such feelings stem from feelings of guilt and/or low self-esteem.
To see a couple in love or expressing love to each other indicates success ahead for you. Dreaming of saying the words “I love you” implies that you are ready for love and want to give love. To hear someone say “I love you” signifies that you are ready to accept love into your life. If you say “I love you” to someone and he or she doesn’t say it back, then it represents uncertainty in your relationship. Perhaps you feel that you are giving more than you are getting back.
To dream that your friend is in love with you, may be one of wish fulfillment. Perhaps you have developed feelings for your friend and are wondering how he or she feels.

On the other hand, the dream may suggests that you have accepted certain qualities of your friend and incorporated it into your own character.
To dream that you are making love in public or in different places, relates to some overt sexual issue or need. Your dream may be telling you that you need to express yourself more openly. Alternatively, it represents your perceptions about your own sexuality in the context of social norms. You may be questioning your feelings about sex, marriage, love, and gender roles.
To dream of your lost love represents an idealistic relationship. You are looking for romance, excitement, and freshness that is lacking in your present relationship.
