I am in love with a younger man who refuses to enhance our relationship physically. Last night was the first time I dreamed of him. He was with me in an antique shop and questioning me about the use of a silver piece (a small little dish). I felt very uncomfortable. I did not know the answer and realized with pain in my heart his “cold character.”
When looking into the mirror later on, I saw that all my teeth were half broken and I was surprised I had not noticed it before.
The dream caused some fear in my heart. Although it doesn’t sound cruel, I told the man after the dream not to call me for the next four weeks. I have not dreamed of him since.
Wow! You are a woman who acts upon her dreams! And, based upon what you have told us of your relationship with this man, I think you made a wise decision to cool off on this “cold character.”
Dreams of teeth falling out are surprisingly common. (Ask any of your girlfriends if they have had this dream. You will discover that most of them have.) They always are disturbing, and their symbology, similarly, is puzzling. Our teeth fall out when we are in public (we often try to conceal this fact from others), when we are alone, and when we are in the middle of a conversation with friends. What is the significance? Is it time for a dentist’s appointment, or is there a deeper meaning?
The key to understanding “teeth” dreams is to recognize how important our smile is in our presentation to others. Because of this connection, we find that dreams of teeth falling out almost always are associated with concerns about appearance. And, while the dreams often indicate concerns about our physical looks, it is important to recognize that they also signal concerns about our social, intellectual, and emotional appearance. All of these concerns are reflected in your dream.
