I believe sometimes, when you don't realize the meaning of the dream. Our mind has its way of receiving indications from our spiritual self about it. Each dream is different, and the user who has them.
In my experience, I stopped having it because It started to cause me stress in my life mental health wise. So I decided to avoid the indicators and triggers. Thus I stopped having it. But I realized long ago, that sometimes even if you love someone their darkness has a way of swallowing you whole. Thus the Dark seer represents the darkness of a person's self. It can be termed as the Shadow which doesn't allow another to manifest feelings of love for the beloved. The shadow won't allow it. As it doesn't deem you worth nor ready to accept the love of your dreams.
I believe this is what I understood from my dream. That sometimes even if I was worthy, the darkness of a person's self will never allow my love to manifest even if I prepare for it countless times. The result will always be the same.
What is meant to be, so shall it be? Only we can decide that for ourselves. And that I believe every single one of us has to make that choice ourselves to be selfless for the other regardless of what comes may.
It takes two people to make it work. One is a just a drag and a dead weight. This is a lesson by the spiritual realm itself to awaken your true self so that the shadow doesn't have any control over your options.
Exploring dreams is a fascinating thing. And I have many tales that have led me to fantastic and surprising places because of them.
