What does it mean when someone does not talk to you in a dream?

Below are likely causes and what would make each of them more likely.

Purpose of dreams

It is thought that dreams are usually based on recent conversations, activities or other issues in your life. Dreams can function to help us get through trauma, to prepare ourselves to deal with threats, and to ensure that we do not forget important memories. (source)

To play out scenarios

Humans are social animals and it would have been important for us to keep members of our tribe happy in the past. The reason why you dreamt about someone not talking to you could be that your brain was helping you to prepare for the scenario of someone not talking to you. This would be more likely if what you dreamt about has never actually happened in real life.

To deal with trauma

It could also be the case that your brain is helping you to deal with past trauma. This would be more likely if what you dreamt about was something that happened in your past that was traumatic for you in some way.

To remember something important

It might also be your brain’s way of helping you to remember something that was important. This would be more likely if you dreamt about a time that someone actually did not talk to you but it was not so traumatic for you.

Consider what else happens in the dream

It would help to consider what else happened in the dream. If other things happened such as you being removed from a group, it could be your brain’s way of helping you to prepare for traumatic scenarios. Whereas, if it involved something that actually happened, it would be more likely to be to help remember what happened.

Consider what has happened in your life lately

It would also help to consider what else happened in your life lately, since you might have been dreaming to help process a recent event. This would be more likely if something traumatic happened recently such as having a falling out with a friend.

Consider if you have had lifestyle changes recently

Dreams occur most when we are in REM sleep which is the deep sleep stage where our brain is supposed to be the least active. If you have been able to recall your dreams easily, it might be a sign that you have been having problems in your life lately. Causes could include not sleeping enough, getting stressed or anxious or getting less exercise.

What does it mean when someone ignores you in a dream?

If someone ignores you in a dream, it could be because your brain is preparing you to deal with someone not talking to you in real life or because it is helping you to process something that happened to you which would be more likely if the dream involves something that actually happened.

What does it mean when you dream about someone you don’t talk to anymore?

Likely reasons why you will dream about someone that you do not talk to anymore are so that you do not forget about them and so that you can remember experiences that you gained with them which could be useful in your future.

If you want to learn more about body language, a book I would recommend would be The Definitive Book of Body Language (on Amazon). It shows you how to interpret body language and understand people's true intentions.
