I had a dream that I was walking to my dorm showers completely naked (except the hallway was longer than normal, and it was like there was only 1 set of showers in the whole building instead of one on each floor). I knew I was naked, and I didn't care or anything, in fact, I even debated going back for a towel, but decided not to bother. And no one else around me seemed to care. But THEN I imagined running into this person I know. And all of a sudden I felt ugly and unhappy with my body and my nakedness in the dream. So, instead of RISKING the UNBELIEVABLY SLIGHT chance that I'd run into them, I ran the other way completely. Like, not even to my room. I just ran, I wanted to go like home or something. I wasn't even worried about clothes, just about getting as far away from where the person MIGHT be as possible. And the reactions of the people around me ranged from "huh? oh, naked person? uhhh, whatever.." to "what the hell? put some clothes on!" to not even noticing. I specifically remember kind of leaning in the corner of this full elevator with my legs crossed and my hands holding my chest, and this guy looked over, raised an eyebrow, and then just went on talking to this girl he was with about what floor they had to stop on.


Does anyone know anything about what this MIGHT represent? I looked up stuff on nakedness in dreams that all SLIGHTLY make sense, but not really....

Thanks for your speculations

THEY NEED A COMMUNITY JUST FOR THIS! haha no seriouslyyy i am constantly trying to interrpet my dreams...
Okay Sooo I got this From Dreammoods.com
Read it all, because I know it doesn't sound like your dream at first. :)
"I'm Naked!" (under common dreams)

So you are going about your normal routine - going to work, waiting for the bus, or just walking down the street when you suddenly realize that you are stark naked. Dreaming that you are completely or partially naked is very common.�Nudity symbolizes a variety of things depending on your real life situation.

Becoming mortified at the realization that you are walking around naked in public, is often a reflection of your vulnerability or shamefulness. You may be hiding something and are afraid that others can nevertheless see right through you. Metaphorically clothes are a means of concealment. With clothes, you can hide your identity or be someone else. But without them, everything is hanging out for all to see. You are left without any defenses.�The dream may telling you that you are trying to be something that you really are not. �Or that you are fearful of being ridiculed and disgraced. If you are in a new relationship, you may have some fears or apprehension in revealing your true feelings.

Nudity also symbolizes being caught off guard. Finding yourself naked at work or in a classroom, suggests that you are unprepared for a project at work or school. You may be uninformed in making a well-formed decision. With all eyes on you, you have this fear of having some deed brought to public attention. You fear that people will see through your true self and you will be exposed as a fraud or a phony.

Many times, when you realize that you are naked in your dream, no one else seems to notice. Everyone else in the dream is going about their business without giving a second look at your nakedness. This implies that your fears are unfounded; no one will notice except you. You may be magnifying the situation and making an issue of nothing. On the other hand, such dreams may mean your desire (or failure) to get noticed.

For a small percentage of you, dreaming that you are proud of your nakedness and show no embarrassment or shame, then it symbolizes your unrestricted freedom. You have nothing to hide and are proud of who you are. The dream is about a new sense of honesty, openness, and a carefree nature




I would try to interpert your dream myself, but it's really hard to interpert others dreams if you know nothing about there life or who they are. Sorry if this isn't what you are looking for!

so what I'm seeing here is:

For the most part I am proud of myself and who I am, and the lack of attention paid by the majority of the people around me means that...its not a big deal? haha. But then when I think of this person, who must be my weakness, implicates my vulnerability concerning them, and my fear of...something?

this is hard, HAH!

Not an expert... but, I remember from classes that nakedness = vunerabilty. & the running around normally means you're apprehensive about something. Cause you're trying to run away from it in your dream, you're trying to run away from it in real life... but, beyond that, I'm not really sure. You should look up the distinctive memories of the dream, ie elevator, running, naked, shower/dorm... etc. Cause that also might get you some insight to this...

i have a book on this and me and my friend always talk about it & try to figure out what they mean.

i think you are probably intimidated by whoever you were running from

Yes, my friends and I came to that decision. Good news is, recently I had a dream that I was walking down the hallway with my pants off, and ran into them again, and ended up changing while they stood in the door way waiting for me, and I wasn't nervous or uncomfortable at all. It was great.
