What is the most boring dream you've ever had? I'm just curious, I most certainly had the most boring dream i have ever had about 2 days ago. It was a very long dream and i was playing chess the whole dream and there was complete silence

I have had a couple of dreams where I have been stuck in my grandmother's apartment for hours. Once, we had one movie to watch, and it was in spanish. It repeated itself over and over until I finally realised it was a dream! It went on to be a very nice LD. siiw


Current LD goal(s): To bring back art or a song

I had an ND where I was sitting in my dad's truck reading a book that made no sense whatsoever, I should've noticed this obvious dreamsign and become lucid.

I don't get many truly boring dreams, and when I do I tend to forget about them all since I don't bother writing them up (they really aren't worth remembering).

For me, though, it's quite subjective anyway. It's not what I do, but a certain feel to the dream that makes it boring - I know sometimes I've dreamed of things that ought to be very exciting, such as flying, and found them extremely dull and pointless just because it was that kind of dream. Likewise, I once dreamed of studying for and taking a test and found it fascinating!

However, I'd have to say the worst I remember was one late last year where I was trying continually to put my contact lenses in and failing for ages (but was too stupid to give up).

I once dreamed I was a plant just standing there in the corner of a room. It was pretty.... boring.

there is a learning technique . you study a lesson just before you sleep for a while , and u think about it in the bed , this way you are supposed to learn it deeply. I used this technique sometimes for math and it gave me the worst nights(so i think it works). it felt like those dreams last all the night and , there were numbers , triangles passing by , and problems you could never solve.

I had a few awful boring dreams where I was writing code.

Worst thing was I just kept rewriting the same boring things with slight differences. I remember saying to myself "I'm done with this! Stop thinking about it!"

I think it was a view into a repetitive problem-solving thought process that I wasn't supposed to see, because in both cases I woke up in the morning knowing exactly what was wrong with the program I was writing, and sat down and rewrote much of it entirely in a very short time.

in the days before I could drive, I had many boring dreams of driving on a non-descript highway for the whole dream.

Nowadays, I get the same dream over and over again: I'm stuck in a dull maze-like mansion, I have to get out.

My most boring dream was when i dreamed an entire day. I went through my usual monotonus day, only to wake up and realize that it was a dream after I checked the date. Or did someone change my clock?

Ooh, I just remembered an even worse one - one week when I played minesweeper a lot, I kept having dreams about playing minesweeper, except that the games just went on and on and on without winning or losing... grrr, that was incredibly dull, lol.

I agree with Stormthunder, it's the general atmosphere and mood in the dream rather than the events themselves, that decide whether it's a boring dream or not. You can say the same thing for waking life as well, by the way.

As for boring dreams, at least among the dreams I remember I haven't had many of them.

I really laughed when I read this - very cool dream! gni

One of the most boring dreams I remember was my first LD ever! I┤m not kidding! That was years ago and I didn┤t know about this whole stuff here and what is possible in a LD. I was in this castle doing nothing special and suddenly I knew I was dreaming. I was very exited but I just didn┤t know what to do! Isn┤t that sad? So I just walked up a corridor in this castle up and down all the time without knowing what to do. Today of course I know thousands of things which I can do in a LD, but back then... I just don┤t know why this happend. But until I had my first "real" LD I was scared that this would happen again.
Thats kind of embarassing to me... my first LD one of my most boring dreams ever....... cry

I think that the reason i had the chess dream is because at the time I went a lot to a nice cafÚ and played chess for hours but that wasn't boring at all but in a dream it can
