Lucid Intent? No

I was packing for a conference I had to attend in San Fran. I gathered my belongings and headed to the airport and then suddenly arrived in San Fran as if almost by magic. I checked into the hotel but it wasn’t really a hotel. It was like a beach house, beautiful, bright, shiny, happy, homey and comfortable. It had an inviting feel to it with books on shelves and a very clean and organized atmosphere. I settled in for the night. The next day I reported to the conference and the organizers were so unorganized that they ended up sending me home for the day since they weren’t quite ready for my classes I was going to teach. I returned back to the beach house and later I received a knock on the door. A friend of mine had shown up as he knew I was going to be in town for the event and he took work off that day to spend the day with me. This was the first time we had met in real life (but we've been friends online for a very long time) and I was very nervous and wasn’t sure what to expect. We had a great day though, we spent it together in an intimate way and then out exploring the town and soon he took me to dinner. We sat and ate at a very nice restaurant, he in his dress clothes and me in a little black dress and then he dropped me off later that night at the beachhouse. I bid him farewell and disappeared into the home and had a great night relaxing and getting ready for my next big day.
I arrived at the conference once more bright and early and they still weren’t ready for my classes to be taught so they asked me if I would volunteer and help with other things. I was to teach some information on quantum physics but I had no idea the other subjects they needed me to step in for. I decided I would hit the bathroom and several other instructors followed me and I asked why they wouldn’t just bring in the expert for that matter and send me back home until they are ready for the quantum phsyics group. Then one of them told me we weren’t allowed to leave until an authority type person released us…I responded with a perplexed look and then they filled me in more by telling me that large robots patrolled the halls and you couldn’t leave until you were released. I peeked out the bathroom door to find a large one coming down the corridor at that moment. I shut the door and my heart raced a bit. OK so I’m a bit trapped I see. I spent the next four days working from sun up to sun down and not getting much sleep. I eventually made it home and I was thankful to be done with that conference. The dream skipped several months ahead and I was again packing clothes for yet another conference in San Fran. I had not heard anything at all from the online friend I met in real life at the last conference in San Fran. We had been friends for several years but never met in person and since doing so I hadn’t spoken to him since. A bit worried about being abandoned I wasn’t sure if I should write to him by email and let him know I was on my way back out to San Fran or what I should do. I decided to text him and right as I pushed the send button, I woke up...a bit panicked...it was like a very bittersweet moment.
It's true I have a friend I've met online but have not met in real life. We have talked via email, text and by phone and I've seen video of him and he's seen video of me, but we've never met. We had been talking all weekend before this dream so I'm not sure if this dream was a manifestation of something I felt or what, but it was definitely not fun to feel abandonment like that.
