Resolved questions
the different using habits for "about" and "of",thanks for your opinion.

It's confusing for me to choice "about" or "of" when I met such sentences which include "dream of" or "dream about",
for example : I dreamed of the love with you. - I dreamed about the love with you.
I heard of his brother having succeeded. - I heard about his brother having succeeded.
I can't distinguish the using feeling between them, can I get your help or your opinion about it.

thanks a lot for helping.

    In the examples you used I would always use 'about'

    I dreamed about you last night
    I dreamed about my best friend
    I dreamed of a holiday to America
    I dreamed of a time in the future when we can be together.

    In the context of dreamed, I would say you dream ABOUT a person, but you dream OF an object.
