A critical component is lacking in your relationship. The dream is deception and cover-up of some situation. You may be experiencing some delays or setbacks toward your goals.

You need to take small steps in your relationship, toward your goal, in a work project or whatever undertaking. This unfortunately draws attention to your desires to blend into the background and not be noticed. You lack the ability to fulfill or sustain your needs.
