Saved by boy from shark - dream symbolism

The day before this dream the dreamer had talked to a boy about taking their relationship to 'the next level' but received no answer. How could the shark in this dream be a symbol for this situation? Maybe it is a symbol for the danger involved in talking to him. The shark a symbol for her devastated emotions?

THE DREAM I am in a furnished room full of water. Nothing in this room floats or seems to be in the water however. I am with the boy I like and there is a shark in the water. The shark doesn't pay any attention to us, so he wants us to cut our palms and see who the shark comes to first, like its a game. He makes a small cut on his right palm, and I thought he was going to make one on mine, but he doesn't. The shark immediately comes after me and I see blood in the water as a trail from where he was. I try and get away by swimming to the bottom but can't really hold my breath any more. I'm scared, but he comes and pulls me to safety and I can breathe again.

GUESSWORK The day before the dream the dreamer talked to the boy in the dream. She tried to talk to him about taking their relationship to the next level and become a couple. Sadly she didn't get a reply.

1. When a shark swims after a trail of blood it represents weakness and vulnerability. How could this situation relate to real life. The shark homes in on the vulnerable like people home in on weakness in the girl who has opened up her feelings and leaves herself open to a savaging of her emotions.
2. Blood often represents hurt feelings and its easy to see how blood represents the dreamers hurt feelings that this boy had not made an effort to reply to her wish to take the relationship to the next level.

DREAM ANALYSIS In guesswork the dream was linked to the dreamers conversation with a boy she liked. It deals with the following themes.
- Hurt feelings
- An easy and vulnerable target

If you weave together the different themes you find that they could capture these thoughts -"I asked him to move the relationship to the next level. Its left me really open and vulnerable. Only he can save me from my emotions taking a real mauling"
