Before I get into the interpretation, I would like to ask you some questions.
1) how do you feel about the man in your waking life?
2) what were your feelings in the dream when you saw him presented as fat?
3) did you have any interaction with him in the dream? If so, what?
Thank you - I will await your answers.
Okay - that makes sense. Thank you!
So, my guess is that he was fat in your dream because you are sensing something about him that is off (and possibly unattractive) in your waking life. Another possibility is that you see him as being glutted with the attention of other women. Your subconscious mind translates this in a literal fashion by making him fat in your dream. I would go with the second interpretation if you didn't have any feelings of repulsion in the dream. If you just had a reaction of "that's curious," it probably just means that you see him as being rich with something (adulation, perhaps?).
It's interesting too that you saw him from across the room. Your subconscious mind was putting physical distance between you and him - this could indicate that you either don't want to be closer to him or that you feel distanced in some other way (emotionally?) You indicated in your response earlier that you are being cautious and your dream seems to be reflecting that.
I welcome your thoughts.
Wow - that's interesting! Your subconscious is reflecting that ambivalence back to you.
Just out of curiosity, is it the fact that he has several women interested in him the factor that puts you off? I ask because his intentions toward you seem pretty clear...
I see. It sounds like you're being appropriately cautious (for now). You may be on to something with his advances being so intense right away. Relationships don't usually progress that way. However, I'd hate to rule out something good by being too tenative... Either way, I think you're doing the right thing by exploring the relationship on your own terms (and on your turf). It's safer and more familiar. Also, you can give yourself time to learn about him and his history. If there are red flags, maybe your caution is correct - if not, just enjoy the journey!
I have to say, your subconscious sounds very smart! :)
