Dream: Shower. Naked, unattractive workmate. Escape.

by thesagittarian12 on November 26, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

I'm having a shower when I sense there's someone behind me. I turn around and see one of my workmates standing there naked. She grabs me in an attempt to stop me from exiting the shower, but I break free from her clutches.

This dream happened about three days ago, and I've worked with the woman in question on two consecutive nights since. I can't help wondering if maybe this woman actually DOES find me attractive, and my subconscious (by way of a dream) is trying to tell me that.
