A Don Draper-Like Man And Martin Thomas

I am not sure if this is just one transitioning dream or several dreams so I will type it as one dream, I only barely remembered part of the first two parts of this dream thanks to me thinking about my dreams to voice record them before getting out of bed to use the bathroom and then voice record my dreams, but unfortunately my favorite part of the dream (the first part of the dream) is too unclear to properly type accurately so expect errors and missing details and confusion; and I think that it was partly inspired by some Pauline Croze videos on YouTube that I watched last night before going to sleep as I was trying to decide if I should replace the video at the end of my About page or not or any other videos on that page (I looked through some Inception and Luther videos as well).

All that I can remember of the dream is being inside a windowless hotel-like room with whitish/grayish colored carpet/walls/ceiling, there was a woman who either was Pauline Croze or there was a woman who reminded me of Pauline Croze or Pauline Croze and another woman were in the dream at different points in the dream and/or some of Pauline Croze’s music was in the dream, either way there was a woman with whitish colored skin who I wanted to build a relationship with or to at least be close to physically/mentally/emotionally/socially/et cetera and it was not about sex and there was no sex or nudity in the dream.

Instead of sex or lust or any of that it was about simple human connection/relationship/et cetera, like having someone to hug/cuddle/make physical contact with and to not have to sleep alone in bed and having some one to talk to and having someone to listen et cetera, and so I was not even worried about or thinking about sex during the dream; it was all about the simple human need to be close to someone on those various levels that I mentioned earlier, and I assume that was something that I was missing in my life and I was hoping to fill that need.

Unfortunately I can not remember most of the dream but I do know that I had some nice moments with the woman during the dream in my room over several different days, we talked and made physical contact and even slept in the same bed sometimes (no sex), and we seemed to be building a relationship; but something happened that I can not remember where I learned that I guess that she only liked me as a friend, so I guess I got rejected, but I still enjoyed the time that we had spent together and even though I was a bit disappointed with not being able to build our relationship any further I was okay with things staying the way that they were even though it seemed to send mixed signals about our relationship.

The next part of the dream took place in a multi-story apartment-like building (maybe the same building from earlier) on an upper floor and it seemed to be inspired by a post called Mad Men – Opening Theme – RJD2 – David Carbonara that I read on Bettie Albatroz’s blog where she had a nightmare about being Don Draper from the television series Mad Men (which I have never seen before yet, but I have heard of it; and I have created a Mad Men Yourself avatar before).

The dream seemed to be taking place during the time period that Mad Men takes place (so the visuals and clothing styles fit that time period, I was somehow seeing this all, and it felt a bit like being in the film Rear Window) and there was a Don Draper-like man with whitish colored skin with light-to-medium colored hair who was always wearing a suit who was living on the upper floor of this apartment building with his wife who had whitish colored skin and who seemed to be older than him and not very attractive, and it seemed that he was not very attracted to his wife and that he was getting bored of her; and so he started staying out late at bars/restaurants.

His wife would get angry at him and nag at him when he would return late at night, she assumed that he was committing adultery/cheating on her, but surprisingly he was not cheating on her yet which was surprising; and this caused huge problems in their marriage and they started to distance themselves from each other, after constantly being nagged by his wife and accused of adultery each night, the Don Draper-like man decided to actually start committing adultery.

During his late nights at bars/restaurants he started meeting various women and committing adultery, at some point he no longer cared to try to hide it, and one late night he brought home a woman who lived in their apartment building who somewhat reminded me of Miss Lonelyhearts from the film Rear Window; and his wife confronted both of them, they lied and denied committing adultery, but it was obvious and the wife did not believe them; but the Don Draper-like man no longer cared what his wife thought and he told her so, but that is all that I can remember of this part of the dream.

The next part of the dream involved me talking with my mom or parents’ inside a house, she/they told me that my brother GC had a job working at a store, and so I went to the store to shop and visit him; and the store was in a quiet shopping center near a pier-like area with wooden walkways, and his manager and one of the other workers were two women with dark-brownish colored skin with blackish colored hair.

I greeted my brother GC, his manager, his other co-worker, and we briefly talked and I learned a bit about what kind of work they had my brother GC doing; and it seemed like a nice quiet job that he could handle, and that even I could handle so I was happy for him and probably wondering if they had another job opening but I did not mention this.

I did not see any other shoppers around which was nice, the manager mentioned that they were having problems with a water leak in the building but that they were not sure where it was coming from, I told them that I could try to help see if I could find the leak; and they asked me how much would I charge to do this, I told them that I did not know how to do plumbing really but that I would see if I could help, and that I would give them a price estimate if it was something that I could help fix.

I started looking around for the leak and I found at least one place where it was clearly leaking but I did not know how to fix it, I told the manager that my dad did plumping work (among many other types of work) and that I would call him to see if he could fix it, and so I called my dad and he arrived to try to fix the leak.

I remember my dad repairing the leak by setting up a fire hydrant-like object on the location of the leak, but we found out that there were more leaks to be fixed and so my dad started searching for those leaks; and then I went to get something to eat while he did that, and I was going to return and help him after I eat first.

I walked along the wooden walkways to a small restaurant with a concession-like stand, I bought a sandwich and something else that I can not remember, and they cut my sandwich into several pieces for me; and then I went outside and I saw a fictional male celebrity and his celebrity wife and their child or children who all had whitish colored skin, and Martin Thomas from Double Toasted.

The wife and kid(s) were near the wooden walkway, the husband was on the walkway, and Martin was about to enter the restaurant that I was walking out of so that he could get them all some food; and so I decided to give my sandwich to Martin so that they could share it since it was already cut into pieces, but Martin needed to break it into at least two more pieces so that everyone could get some.

Martin thanked me and we briefly talked, I told him that I recognized the husband and wife as celebrities, and Martin told me to go tell them what was going on as he broke two more pieces of the sandwich; and so I walked over to the husband to greet him, I told him about the sandwich situation, and how I knew who him and his wife were and we briefly talked.

He introduced me to his wife and kid(s) and we briefly talked, and then we said goodbye as Martin was bringing them their pieces of the sandwich and as I was leaving to go back to help my dad fix the leaks; but I woke up.

The end,
