I'm a lucid dreamer, and it's awesome! Anytime something is extremely illogical, dangerous, or stressful, I immediately realize I'm dreaming and change the dream.
On the downside, I'm also a sleepwalker, and I wake up in random places sometimes.
MixedHead saidI can never recall how faces of guys I fall for in my dream look like,
Don't hold me to it, but your brain actually processes faces in a separate area from vision and primary consciousness. There is some thought that may account for why most people can't clearly remember faces. In the same vein, most people can't actually read in a dream either. You might be able to recognize words, but most people can't actually read. As for the faces, it's usually a hazy figure w/o detail. I'm sure there are exceptions though.
