EUGENE, Ore. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – If you’ve been dreaming about teddy bears lately, your love life may be lacking.

So says Peter Fenton, a former carnie and paranormal researcher who runs

Fenton recently analyzed Valentine’s Day dreams and what certain symbols like chocolate, lingerie, and teddy bears could mean for those thinking about them in their sleep.

If someone is snoozing to thoughts of cuddly Vermont Teddy Bears, their love life is a nightmare.

Fenton says teddy bear dreams symbolize that the heat has fizzled from a romance and it’s turning into a friendship.

If someone dreams of lingerie around Valentine’s Day, they’re into the sexuality of the holiday.

Dreams about heart-shaped candy or chocolate cake mean someone is feeling “sensual” about V-Day.

Fenton says women tend to have more positive dreams about the romantic day while men have tense nightmares over what to buy their beloved.
