Got an Answer?
If he said it in his sleep, I’d not think anything of it. He may not have been dreaming of you at all
I’m a sleep talker and will often say shit like I love you while asleep. Most of the time it’s talking shit. Could be to you, could be to someone else, could be to tacos. Who really knows? My money would be on the tacos though.
The other night in my sleep I was looking for our cat. We don't have a cat. I wouldn't read too much into it haha. Sounds like that's what you want though so maybe have a chat to him. Good luck
