My dream waking another 3 hours away


New member
Hello -my first time here!
I have many dreams, and many questions, but I’ll start with this.
When I was in my 20s, I dated a man who came from another city and had gone home.
I had a terrible dream one night where I was being chased and I was screaming. I awoke and it was around 2 am.
Early the next morning, my fellow called me and asked me if something had happened the night before. This was long before cell phones.
He told me he had been awakened by me screaming. He thought it was a dream, as we were 3 hours away from each other.
He was still unsettled about it. This happened to him at 2 am.

Did we share a dream? How is this possible?
Thank you.
