Dreaming of Megan Fox

Dream Momma,

My boyfriend has a reocurring dream of being a successful lawyer, married to Megan Fox, living in a nice home with children. He wakes up from this dream and his reality seems like a nightmare. (he is 35 unemployed and is back living with his parents).  I try to be supportive but I'm hurt when he tells me he's dreaming of Megan Fox.

Dear Dreamer, one time removed.  I guess hurt could be the word that works but I'll tell you girlfriend, your problems are far greater than him dreaming of Megan Fox. You don't say how old you are and since he's 35 I'm guessing you're no teenage.  Why are you thinking like one?

Now here's the juice. You've hooked up with a loser. Not because he's unemployed but because his recourse is to live with mommy and daddy.  By 35 he should have more going for him than that, even a buddy with a couch.  His dream tells you how big his fantasies are compared to his reality.  Perhaps that's why he's unemployed. Nothing was good enough for him. I don't know, it's his dream, but I would have given him the same feedback about it.  Now, unless you are Megan Fox I suggest you take the not so subtle hint and cast your net elsewhere.  Good luck.
