    I used to have that dream that seemed really common - that I was in High School, and suddenly realized...
    A) I wasn't wearing pants
    2) There was a big Final Exam or something that I had totally forgotten about, and for which I had not studied at all.

      Supposedly that one is due to having insecurities about your appearance.

      Another one I have is I find myself going back to my old house that I had before I bought my current one. And I don't even like that old house. But for some reason I am back there. Another one with a house is I am in some unknown house with a lot of rooms and I can't find my way out.
      That one is also pretty common, and I've had it too.

      Sometimes I have lucid dreams, where I am aware I am in a dream. I love those because I can do anything I want, including flying. But generally knowing I am in a dream means I can't maintain it too long and I wake up.
      Those are fun, but they are pretty rare, and as you said it is hard to maintain.

        In fact, there was a part where I had to fight this bear-like ogre in a room made of ice and the last time I actually apologized for having to kill him again -- and proceeded to kill him yet again.
        That reminds me of what I heard about PTSD related dreams.

          unprepared... and pantless! That was time to take control of the dream and hide out in the girl's locker room smiley dirtyflirt.gif

            I've had a repeat dream for a few decades now. The circumstances always are different in them, but there's one theme that repeats. I can fly (more like glide on the air currents) and no matter where I am, when I fly, my favorite place to be is in the middle of a storm cloud watching the lightning all around me and gliding on the currents... No one around, nothing else to see... just me and the clouds.


            Do you have a recurring dream in your life that you'd like to share?
            A Freudian might hold that recurring dreams of being able to fly contained symbolic references that may include a desire for power and/or control with the act of flying symbolising freedom by breaking the natural human constraints. Or it may simply represent feelings of elation in some aspect of your life, sexual or not, represented by breaking the bonds of earth and soaring high above it.

              Reading the accounts most of these dreams sound like anxiety dreams. Being unprepared in various ways, not properly dressed, forgetting something important like an exam, not being able to find something, having difficulty in finding one's way out of somewhere, hitting dead ends, being falsely imprisoned, etc.

                  In some ways I've been fortunate not to have many nightmares, reoccurring dreams, anxiety dreams, or superhuman dreams like flying.

                    Lately, I've been sleeping soundly, and wake up refreshed, not remembering any dreams at all.

                        Been doing that for nearly two years until early last week where I woke up from a dream that I could recall in full detail in order to use the bathroom. Then went right back into the dream after going back to bed.

                        Basically, I was supplying high end antique furniture to a store run by a pair of gorgeous women who were complaining that most of the stuff I got was from Philadelphia and I needed to find more variety.

                        I didn't say it was an exciting dream.

                          Is it usual for grown men to fantasise when conscious about being able to fly?

                            People, including grown men, have not only fantasized about it but kept trying to make it a reality. That's how we got things like aircraft and skydiving.

                              You're kinda drifting into debate, contrary to the wishes of the OP, maybe.

                                It was merely a question in response to a speculative comment.

                                As I have noted most of the dreams recounted here appear to be expressing anxiety of one sort or another.
