I liked him for 3 years, really really liked him, but for those 3 years I never once dreamt of him. I've only just recently moved on for good i think and now my mind wants to torture me by dreaming of him constantly...
Why is this?

If you were over him, it wouldn't be torturing you, but I digress...
In Sigmund Freud's "Dream Psychology," he states that the people you contrive in your dreams are not representative of the people themselves, rather, they are stand-ins which embody some sort of abstraction. This means that they are merely symbolic figures which manifest themselves as faces in your dream.
For example, if one is having really bad trust issues in a relationship, they won't dream about their partner cheating on them, they will dream about someone, a bad father lets say, in their past who encompass "mistrust," and in the dream he will steal from you, or something similar.
Every dream is very unique, so a more elaborate interpretation would be needed to get into any detail. However, you can begin to think about what he might represent to you. Perhaps he represents what is unattainable, or devotion, or that which is desirable.
So next time someone says they had a dream about you, take some time to dissect the dream, you may discover something profound about your connection with them, but remember, just because your face was in the dream doesn't mean the dream had anything to do with you.
If you want to give me a more detailed account of your dreams, I would love to help analyze them with you.1
