This article is from the Dreaming FAQ, by "Lars Rune Foleide" larsrune@sf.telia.no .

4.2. Is it possible to share dreams?

Yes. Dreams can be shared and people may even have conversations with
others with 100% accuracy. This is an interesting concept, and again
you should be lucid in order to make conscious contact with others in
your dream. Many people experience similar dreams with friends or
relatives. This is not uncommon either. Shared dreaming is also called
mutual dreaming. Telepathy is an area that has been done more
research on. The same laboratory that experimented with precognitive
dreams, have also experimented with dreamtelepathy. They have done 13
various experiments with dreamtelepathy, 9 of those gave statistical
significant results.

my Lucid Dreaming FAQ. If you suspect having had a shared dream, then
write it down for later comparing of notes.
