Murky water - dream analysis

THE DREAM I was at the edge of some basin or water reservoir with rough concrete edges, the water was clear but black. There was a man swimming in it, I saw him from behind. After some hesitation, I entered the water and swam behind him. The water soon became murky and was thick with black leaves. There were trees around but I could not see which type. The dream ended as I could swim no further due to the thickness of the leaves.

GUESSWORK The previous evening the dreamer met a guy and liked him a little bit, but knew in her heart it wouldn't lead to anything. She met him on an internet dating site and saw the real life situation as opposed to what he had written in his profile.

The "Guesswork" stage of interpreting a dream involves spotting issues likely to cause dreams. For help with this click here

1. The dream featured a man and so it may relate to any issue with men in general. The previous day the dreamer had met someone from a dating site and so the dream could represent some thoughts about that date.
2. The dream features the word leaves and so could be a potential wordplay. It could represent any situation where the dreamer is "leaving", should "leave" or wishes to "leave alone".
3. Swimming often represents emotional efforts and energy. In this case the dreamer had put a lot of effort into meeting people on this site.
4. In the beginning the water is clearer and then turns murky. The dream captures some change in the dreamers thoughts. From something that was perhaps clear to something that is murky.

DREAM ANALYSIS In guesswork the dream was linked to the dreamers date the night before. The dream deals with the following themes
- The dreamers attitude towards men
- The dreamers own emotions
- The need to leave something
- A belief that something is not quite as clear as it was before.
If you weave together the different themes you find that they could capture these thoughts -"That date last night was useless. What he wrote on his profile and the reality was quite a contrast. I should just leave this alone."
