Advice for a friend--PLEASE HELP?

Hey, I wanna ask for advice on behalf of one of my friends. I was talking to her about how she needs a straight version of Oasis, then I was like *lightbulb*, I can just ask y'all.

Last year near the end of spring semester she developed a crush on a senior in her gym class. This was about three weeks before graduation, and she's cautious with guys, so she never really got his attention. However, they sorta became friends, just in that class. She fell really hard for him. Over the summer, she started having dreams about him. Not like that kind of dream, just like them talking and stuff. Sometimes she wouldn't have one for a while, but then she'd see him in town and she'd have a relapse. Recently, she briefly dated another guy. Just last night, though, she had another dream about the guy from last year. This time, in the dream, they kissed, which is the first time that's happened.

She's really torn up over this, especially because she doesn't really feel emotionally attached to him anymore. Her uncle who normally gives her guy advice isn't really helping and I have no idea what to tell her. Anybody have any advice/words of wisdom?

I do.

It's a fucking DREAM. Don't put too much weight on it. I think she's over-reacting.

While the dreams can show us about what we're thinking, they're also quite meaningless at times, even when they're recurring.

I had a dream I was being eaten by a clam. I didn't convert to scientology, now did I?

Maybe she should say hi to

Maybe she should say hi to him next time she sees him and when they become friends again she can see if she still likes him. Maybe she just doesn't have him out of her system since she never acted on her feelings.
