Are most people in your dreams real people you know, or people with no real-life counterparts?

For me it's 100% either people I know or real life celebrities.

And celebrities usually appear in my dreams a lot, probably 50/50 with people I know.

most of them are friends from school who I haven't seen since. I admit this bothers me a bit, because that was a long time ago now

(what also bothers me is that sometimes I dream about these people as if they're just people I see every day, but sometimes I realise I haven't seen them for a bit, maybe a year or two

I get this alot too (although usually friends I've made and lost/haven't kept in touch with from at least university and forward). I take it as a sign that it's been too long since I've seen or talked with them and should give them a ring. I too often let good friends fall by the wayside by not staying in touch. I think back and realize the last few times we talked, they called me rather than the reverse - it's easy to see why they would think I don't really want them in my life anymore even though I do.

Not surprising I don't dream of celebrities - I don't pay much attention to celeb culture IRL either. I pass by the tabloids with headlines screaming about the latest scandals, with celebs identified only by first names, and I don't even know which Jen or Bob they're referring to.
