Dreams can be a twisted version of reality. However, dreams often have elements of the truth in them. Most people aren't 100% straight or 100% gay. You may be somewhere in the middle of the spectrum. Feel free to explore your sexuality and don't be worried about it. The biggest key is to relax and accept who you are.

I cannot tell you what or who you're attracted to, because you're the expert of yourself. You want what you want, and don't EVER let anyone change you to be what they want you to be.

Dreams are basically like the junk yard for all the conscious and subconscious thoughts you have in a day. They don't necessarily mean anything (like the time Data from Star Trek: TNG pops up talking to your mom). If certain themes or people repeat, it could just mean they've been on your mind a lot lately. Try not to worry about your dreams. Just be present for your waking life and try to make good decisions.

It purely means that you dreamt about kissing someone of the same-sex, would you like to talk about it?

It probably means your curious, it isn't something to freak about about, being curious isn't a big deal nor is being homosexual.

It could possibly be just a dream, or it could mean that you're possibly homosexual. Either way I think it would be best if you consulted a professional about this dream.

Your sexuality may not be what you thought it was. Or, just as likely, your dream meant nothing at all. Plenty of straight people watch gay porn, and vice versa, but they still have the same sexual orientation they previously identified with. It may be something to give some thought to, but don't stress too much over it. Approach at your own pace.

The dream about kissing someone of the same sex is fairly common, it doesn't have to mean anything. You might find that in time it could mean something, however if that does happen, do what you feel necessary in your own time

Dreaming about kissing someone of the same sex is just your brain asking yourself about your sexuality or your desire for the same sex. Explore your feelings and your sexuality. if it feels right, then follow your heart

No one really knows why we dream what we dream, theories yes, but nothing for sure. It could mean absolutely nothing, just the way certain chemicals were released in your brain. Maybe think on your feelings and emotions you had when you woke up after said dream. Your feelings could reveal something about you, or they could not.

If it wasn't only once and you liked it, you might be bi, pan, or gay. It's not wrong! Everybody has dreamed about this atleast once.

It can mean many things believe it or not !: It can mean you are finally comfortable with yourself or that you have a strong desire that isn't being filled it being romantically of emotionally.

It could mean anything. You might be a little curious. You are a secreted gay. Or it was just a dream

Dreams do not always have to mean something. However they come from subconscious thoughts as well. It can only mean something if you want it to mean something. So you might be feeling curious about it but it doesn't mean your sexual orientation is suddenly manifesting.

It means you had a dream. :) Our minds are very strange, interesting places. Dreams can be brought on by something you saw, something you heard, something you were thinking of... If you're wondering if you're gay, I wouldn't take one dream about kissing someone of the same sex as the one thing that means you're gay. So don't worry! I had dreams of kissing (and other things...) someone of the same sex. And I'm happily married to someone of the opposite sex. Just take it for what it was, a dream. If you enjoyed the dream, then you enjoyed it. If you didn't, they you didn't. But it was just a dream. :) And I hope you have many happy sweet ones from now on!

That's nothing unusual, dear. I see you're a bit confused about it, but don't stress yourself because of it. It doesn't need to mean anything :)

Dreams are complicated, and this could mean something, yet other times it means nothing. Dreams can be a manifestation of our waking lives, so perhaps it could mean that your subconscious secretly desires of kissing someone of the same-sex. On the other hand, dreams can be an interpretation of totally different things, and kissing someone of the same-sex may not be interpreted literally.

It means simply what it says on the tin, your imagination showed you the thought of you kissing someone of the same sex. Dreams are not an exact science, it could be a little seed of a larger thing in your life that your maybe not fully aware of yet or your mind could have wondered for something a little bit different from it's usual path. I don't think it's something to worry about, after all, dreams are private. Processing what emotions you have connected to it will help you decide what steps to take next.

It doesn't necessarily mean anything. Sometimes it happens! Maybe you're curious. Don't look into it too much unless you think you have to reconsider your sexuality.

It doesn't necessarily mean anything unless you desire to actually kiss someone of the same sex. It may just be a harmless dream.

This may or may not mean you might be gay. You could just be wanting to experiment and maybe you could.

i can understand why this would be confusing, i identify as straight and i get dreams like this all the time! dreams are weird, they are made of your thoughts and experiences throughout the prior day, or even just things that you have seen or thought about that you can't even remember. it could mean that you may be questioning your sexuality, or it could literally just be a dream.

How did the dream make you feel? I would explore the feelings, thoughts, and situations leading up to the dream in order to grasp a better understanding. At the end of the day you are the only one who can truly answer that question honestly. Be honest with yourself.

dreams sometimes don't mean anything and sometimes they do.Dreaming of kissing someone of the same sex, if you are heterosexual, can indicate self-acceptance and an acknowledgement of your masculine or feminine side

When dreaming of doing physical things of the same sex, your mind may be thinking about transitioning, and the rest of you just hasn't realixed yet. If you're just wanting to date someone of the same sex, there is a chance that you could be gay, which is never a bad thing!!

It depends on how you feel about it. it could have been a random thought on your mind that manifested itself in that way and not really mean anything, or maybe its something more obvious live you may find that person attractive or be curious

Sometimes, it means nothing, just a dream, but if the dream has happened multiple times, it might be something else. If you liked the way the kiss felt, it may mean you might like the same-sex. If you feel attracted to the same-sex, that is a bother sign.

It could mean something, it could mean nothing. You're the only person who can figure that out. Don't stress about it too much, It could have been nothing more than a dream, if you feel like it means more though, it's perfectly okay to try to figure out what those feelings mean.

That doesn't mean you're gay. It's completely natural. You should relax and try to explore what you like
