  • Not very often. Maybe once a month or so. The type of nightmares I've had also drastically changed over the years. Back when I was a child and young teenager (until 15 or so) my nightmares mostly involved imaginary and unrealistic things such as monsters, zombies, aliens, being hunted by wild animals etc.. As I became an adult, my nightmares became much more realistic. Nowadays when I have a nightmare, it usually involves a family member having a terrible accident or dieing or something like that.

Have an opinion?

  • Pretty often, if you also count stressful dreams. In my opinion any type of dream that isn't relaxing can be considered a nightmare.
    Due to how often I get them, I usually sleep terribly. I take naps during the day to compensate.

  • Not very often... Tbh when I wake up they don't seem that scary when in reality if it was real it would be. Sometimes I kind of wish I hadn't have woke. Up to find out what happens next ๐Ÿ˜•

    • Yeah, I'll be fine. It's just not fun when it happens, haha. It is special. It's a "thank goodness that was just fake" moment.

    • No it's not fun, and scary though... I always love that moment though :p

  • Oh not often but when they happen its random and without a trace!

    • Hahaha, why what's wrong with your height? And your weight looks perfect! You can haunt me all you want :p but yeah exactly that's the right mindset, to not worry so much ^^

  • Not often anymore except the other night, when I was falling asleep, I had a dark dream and a woman came out and punched my arm, and she looked angry. I still felt the hit on my arm after I awoke. Dreams are weird.

    • haha they're actually very scary! For me it's not so much disasters or apocalypses :p More of real life situations like getting fails in exams, with teachers and all. Sometimes I dream about ghosts and stuff but they're not as scary!

    • I don't know, those grade ones May be worse! Haha cuz they're actually possible! XD

  • "The dreams in which I am dying are the best I've ever had"

    My dreams are dark, like my soul. Every night before I go to sleep, I cut myself... a slice of cheddar cheese. The mature kind, for old and tormented souls.

    • Ah man, I can so relate!

  • Only when I have to wake up for some reason at a given moment in time. Sometimes I wake up a few minutes before my alarm rings. Then I have the stupidest dreams which are so stupid I wake up. It involves peeing on carpets and pregnancy and teeth falling out.

  • Not very often. My dreams tend to be figures, different shapes and colors, and often asymettrical backgrounds. If it involves people they're usually faceless. Nonsensical situations that just jump one to another without any resolution, sometimes people I know appear, but they don't do much but being there in the nothing that is happening nowhere.

    Wait... maybe all my dreams are nightmares after all ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฃ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

    • Haha man those sound freaky and eerie! "faceless" ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

  • Nightmare would be a dream that leaves you terrfied and anxious. i do have "bad dreams" from time to time but they entertain me so i enjoy them in hindsight.
