Thinking your dream was real and being sad when you wake up

<mod>moved from gen luc moogle </mod>

I have had a lot of dreams where I am convinced they are real and I am so happy and then I wake up to find out they didn't really happen.
ex. Getting a date with the girl I like, my parents adopting a younger brother (who I like better than my current one), finishing high school.

Then I wake up and I'm just like [insert swear here]!!! I wish that had been real or I'm just sad or confused. Does this happen to anyone else?

This has happened to me... but generally, my dreams aren't realistic, so if I have a really great dream, its so completely far fetched when I wake up that I can't really feel that bad about it.

Of course... Recently I had a dream that was awesome, and I mean it, it was awesome. But was a ND and yes, I felt sad when I woke up and found out that this wasn't reality... But so what... And every time when I remember this dream I'm happy. ^^

Several times in the past, and it was always about some girl I liked and finally got to be with.
Then I woke up and felt extremely disappointed. sigh

Yepyepyep. I've had this too.

I had a very realistic dream where Gomez (my cat) came home. In real life, he disappeared some years ago and I never found him.

But in my dream I was deliriously happy that he came back. When I woke up I was completely shattered. I almost hated that dream, it was like losing him all over again. sadblauw

Yes I think it's the one disadvantage of aiming for good dream recall. When my grandma died a few years ago then I had quite a few dreams where I found that she was actually alive, and was really really happy, and then woke up to remember that she'd died sadblauw

I had a very pleasant dream this last night, which made me feel both energized and sad at the same time.
I was flirting with a beautiful 40-year-old cashier at a small store (I've always thought 40-year-old women are so damn attractive, and the age difference 24/40 makes it feel really forbidden and exciting).
She had absolutely gorgeous eyes and smile too, so eye contacts were extremely long all the time we talked - then just as we were getting together (lots of physical contact and that magical moment when both parties know it's time to kiss, etc), I woke up.

I had that happen before. I was dreaming that there was a zombie apocalypse. My younger brother got bitten by a zombie and I had to stab him in the head a few times to protect some other people. I was sad when I woke up.

I get this when it's about a guy or an ex I still like sadblauw a lot of the time I don't remember my dream as soon as I wake up, but during the day something reminds me of it and I have that sad/let-down feeling come over me.
