To dream of a boy who you are crushing on in real life is usually just a straightforward reflection of your feelings for him.
If you dream that you’re in love with a boy who you don’t like in real life, your dream could be telling you that you are overlooking good qualities in that person that makes him worth crushing on. Or, it could mean that he has some personality trait (like being outgoing or sporty) that you wish you had yourself. Dreams about your boyfriend often reflect real-life issues and concerns you have with him.
If you dream that you have a boyfriend, but in real life you don’t, it symbolizes some sort of partnership or commitment. Maybe you want a boyfriend in real life, a common meaning, or maybe the boyfriend in your dream stands for a friend that you have commitment issues with.
If your dream boyfriend is loving, this is your mind’s way of telling you that you are a special person worth loving. You’re giving yourself some much needed affection and praise. Dreaming about an ex-boyfriend can suggest unfinished or confusing issues related to that old relationship. It doesn’t necessarily mean you still care for him, although it can. Often, it means that your current love relationship is awakening similar feelings that you had with your ex, either positive or negative.
If you dream of dating a friend’s boyfriend, your dream is actually about your friend and not the guy. Your friend has certain qualities that you wish you had yourself. Also, you may feel like you’re not as close to this friend as you want to be these days.
If you dream that one of your friends is dating your boyfriend, you may not be getting as much as you want out of your love relationship. This dream can also indicate that you are envious of a quality that your friend has - you wish you were more like her in some way.
If you dreamed about your boyfriend’s ex-girlfriend, you may be comparing yourself to the ex.
The dream is warning you not to make the same relationship mistakes that ended their relationship.
If you dream of having a different boyfriend than you actually do, think of how this “other” boyfriend acted in the dream. It may suggest something you want from your boyfriend - a way you wish he would act, or some way in which you’d like him to change.

What you feel in a dream, and the feeling tone of particular items or the environment in a dream are extremely important.
(1) Feelings in dreams are not symbolic: they represent nothing but themselves. They are feelings you really do have, even if you have shut them out of your consciousness.
(2) Feelings and moods in dreams are more often negative than positive: grey rather than sunny, violent rather than peaceful. This is because dreams express feelings you have repressed out of fear. Dreams have a therapeutic purpose, and that is why they bring to your attention those parts of you that are painful.
(3) Occasionally, however, a dream may express a beautiful positive feeling: glorious erotic fulfilment; blissful oneness with life; love, even for people who have hurt you. Such a dream may usually be understood as indicating the direction in which you should be moving.... A Dictionary of Dream Symbols

Dreams from which you wake up with a sense of unhappiness, regret and nostalgia for the past occur for two reasons. The first is to compensate for unhappiness in your present circumstances by reminding you of past happiness and the possibility of enjoying that kind of happiness again. The second is to help you come to face up to painful memories and come to terms with the past.
If you were awash with homesickness in your dream, try to pinpoint exactly what it was that you were missing. The answer may tell you what your unconscious has identified as lacking in your real life. Perhaps it was a sense of belonging, a sense of fun or childhood innocence and spontaneity....

In dreams, indigestion suggests an idea or attitude that does not agree with you or which you are finding hard to stomach in waking life; it may be something you have taken in, or upon, yourself that you did not realize was toxic when you welcomed it. We are ruled by our emotions and the stomach—being a nerve center which reacts to negative stimuli—is often the first to register changes in our emotional state. The dream may also point to actual indigestion.
Alternatively, could your stomach have been protesting in your dream because it is literally crying out for nourishment, either literally or because you are feeling starved of love?
If your intestines were the source of discomfort in your dream, could your unconscious have been focusing your attention on them to ask if you have the guts to do something that you have been dreading?

Try to discover who or what is upsetting you.... The Element Encyclopedia

Unless you are actually ill or sick, dreams in which your general health and well-being are highlighted may be commenting not just on your physical state, but on your psychological or emotional condition as well.
Such dreams can pinpoint areas of potential conflict and help you achieve a more balanced approach.
If any part of the body is injured or painful in a dream, this may be well worth following up, since illness has been diagnosed in this way before. Bear in mind that dreams usually use body parts and illnesses as symbols for other areas of your life. So try to make a link between your dream ailment and your waking life.
Sigmund Freud pioneered the use of dreams in psychological healing and most dream analysts today agree that in dreams, painful memories and feelings can surface disguised as physical illnesses or weaknesses. Sometimes such dreams foretell real illness if you don’t take better care of yourself, but most of the time they represent the way you approach life. Perhaps you feel you can’t cope with a situation, and illness is the easy way out. Dreams of this sort suggest that you are in conflict with some aspect of your personality and therefore not putting yourself in touch with a force that can give you health in both body and mind. Part of you isn’t well and needs to be cared for. You need to heal these inner troubles and find psychological harmony.... The Element Encyclopedia
