This is a very interesting topic for discussion. I can absolutely understand what you are saying and relate to how you are feeling for the most part.
When I started to get into this and long before I even had my first lucid dreams, I introduced my friends to the topic of dreaming and lucid dreaming in particular. I was a schoolboy back then and very excited about this discovery. Although they listened to what I said and respected my new hobby, they were not particular interested in it themselves. One of them signed up to join wolfgame however and become an addict
About one year ago however, I find a bunch of whatsapp messages from my best friend waiting for me when I wake up in the morning. They were something like “omg I got to tell you this because I know you’ll understand, I just had my first lucid dream and what a blast was this“. Turned out he tried it a bit again by himself and was successful. So since then it’s a topic we talked about a little, but he got too busy recently.
When I started out I also told my parents about it, but I think it’s a fair assessment to say that they don’t understand lucid dreaming at all and also not why this discovery also greatly elevated the importance of normal dreams for me. An assessment whose fairness I’m not so confident about is that they did not even spend an effort to try to understand. “Are you still writing down your dreams?“ is a question I get every other year or when they spot my DJ when I’m on a visit, but sometimes it feels like it is accompanied by a frown.
My current girlfriend, my previous girlfriend and the people I mostly hang out with these days have an almost hostile attitude towards dreams, it’s a cultural thing. My ex-ex-girlfriend was a dreamer herself though, so that was smooth. We always told each other of our dreams after waking up.
Nowadays I still tell my girlfriend if she played a significant role in a dream or if a dream was very important to me, but I can’t say she cares very much. I also sometimes tell other people of individual dreams that they played a part in or that is related to them somehow, e.g. if I have a funny dream about a project we are doing together. But it’s like sharing a story for the sake of conversation or small talk, it never goes deep.
