A bachelor or someone we know to be 'footloose and fancy free' appearing in a dream highlights the side of our personalities which prefers to have no particular ties. We are not tied down by mundane responsibility. We need to open up to the masculine side of ourselves in order to accomplish our destiny. Similar to the knight in tales of old, we sometimes have to challenge the status quo in order to achieve a breakthrough of some sort. To dream of meeting a bachelor indicates that we are searching for freedom either within our emotions or in our love life. In a mans dream it shows he may be wishing for the freedom to achieve something he might find difficult in partnership. In a woman?s dream it indicates she may be feeling constrained by a relationship. You may find further clarification in the section on Archetypes in the Introduction.
