A 24-year-old woman was a high fashion model and was very beautiful. She dreamt that her boyfriend was showing her a female friend who was in the same graduate program that he was. The friend was plain looking and smart.
This friend intensely admired the dreamer’s boyfriend. The dreamer wondered why her boyfiend was making such a big deal about his graduate school friend.
It is important to remember that each character in the dream represents a part of the dreamer’s psyche. The part of her that was involved with her boyfriend was advising her to behave emotionally somewhat more like his female (emotions) fellow graduate student toward him. He wanted to be admired for his brains which would counterbalance the relationship somewhat.
He felt she had all the power in the relationship because she was beautiful and rich. He was more uncertain regarding his future and his prospects for success. He wanted her to support his hope that he too would be successful in his own right.
