What Does It Mean When You Dream About Your Crush?

By on December 29, 2013






On average every one of us dreams seven times per night. We might not even realise it, but that doesn’t make it any less true. All too often people don’t realise this and claim to never dream, not realising how statistically unlikely that actually is. Since you’re reading this, I think it’s safe to say however that you’re not one of those people. I’m going to take a shot and say that you remember your dreams quite a lot, perhaps most nights, and I’m going to take another shot and say that a lot of them feature a certain, very special, someone.

But what does it mean when your crush keeps popping up in your dreams? Why is it that he just can’t contain himself to real life, why is he flaunting himself in your dreams too? Here’s your answer…

The Why

‘The why’ in ‘why is your crush dream stalking you?’ is simple – you’re thinking about him in your waking hours and unable to forget about him when you switch off for the night. When we sleep our subconscious gets free reign and in that time it paints us pictures using the people, objects, places and scenarios we’ve been thinking of when we were awake.

There’s not much else to the why, like I said, it’s simple. You’re focussing on him while you’re awake and your subconscious is simply playing on that fact and creating a dream from it.

What It Means

Depending on your beliefs and whether or not you’re superstitious, dreams can either mean nothing or they can mean everything. They can hide clues to the future or your deepest desires or they can simply be nothing more than your mind playing a trick on you. If you don’t believe dreams hold clues to our futures or insights into our souls then I suggest you skip over this section, it may not be for you.

Here’s a few common dreams that may include your crush and what they are commonly interpreted to mean…

To dream you are kissing your crush symbolizes love, affectation and harmony. Your mind is expressing your waking desire to be close to this person and form some sort of attachment, in this case a relationship.

Don’t panic if you and your crush were arguing in a dream. This doesn’t mean you aren’t compatible as a couple. Arguing in a dream can symbolize tension and that you are trying to resolve an internal conflict. In this case, it’s likely your mind trying to tell you how frustrated it is that your crush is nothing more than a crush. It could show that your mind is ready for the two of you to become more than friends.

If you receive a love note or letter in your dream means that there could be a new relationship ahead of you. It also however symbolizes that you are insecure about something and need reassurance about your feelings or relationship. My advice in this situation is to be hopeful but beware, don’t let your insecurities get the better of you.

What To Do About It

On a whole, dreaming of your crush shows that you have an unresolved issue with him in real life, namely that he’s only your crush and not your boyfriend. You need to take action in the real world by attempting to get closer to him to see if a relationship is on the cards or not. Either way, your dreams about him are likely to grow fewer, if not stop altogether, as you start to live out your fantasy of speaking to him in everyday life. Chances are, you’ll be happier for it too. Instead of waking up feeling slightly hollow every morning seeing as your dream was only a dream, you’ll end each day feeling fulfilled that you spoke to him.

Try reading my article How To Get Your Crush To Like You for tips on how to interact with your crush in real life. As much as we’d all like to, we can’t go on dreaming forever. It’s time to stop dreaming and start living so go out there and make your crush fall head over heels for you!

    In that dream, I also dreamt that I protected he from perverted guys.. And, unrelated to my dream, the next day, I read a book which was relatable to my dream but didn’t know it would be relatable..

      It is always an interesting experience when our reality is applicable to our dreams. Perhaps allow these influences to cause you to act in a positive manner. Share your kindness and compassion with the people in your life. Have a great day, Lucky!

    I had a dream that I was in a relationship with my crush. But when I was, I was happy I was in a relationship, not happy that I was with her.. What does this mean?

      Your dream may be a reflection of your desire to be in a loving relationship. The fact that you were not happy with her in your dream may be a realization that happiness does not come from events. Happiness comes from your viewpoint on the events in your life. If you want to develop a relationship with her, then speak directly and honestly with her about your thoughts and feelings. Have a great day, Lucky!

    I had a dream about getting married with my crush.. In that dream he said my name and told that he wanted to marry me. I was shock and there’s also my friends at that time and they also look shock. After I got married with him I went to his house. I remember that I went a ride with him in a car and taking selfie together… We were so closed and not even get awkward with each other.. That’s all I can remember… If you wouldn’t mind can you tell me what does that means? I’ve been thinking about it all the time

    So I’ve had dreams about my long time crush of 18 years but last night was different. We seemed to be in some type of school setting (possibly where he works since he’s a teacher) and he started out playing Hide n Seek with my sons while I worked. Then all of a sudden towards the end of the dream I’m walking out of the building where I work but I walk out before him and it’s raining, and as he’s walking towards the parking lot, he calls my name and I turn around and the just rain stops. He asks me what am I doing Friday night, so I’m thinking he’s going to ask me out but he doesn’t, he just mentions some kind of fundraiser.

      If the two of you are free and available, then you should take action toward this person. 18 years is a long time to wait before you to develop a relationship. Speak directly and honestly with him about your thoughts and feelings. He may have similar feelings toward you. Have a great day, Vonnie!

      It is not unusual for people to have interests in cousins. Many people only have exposure to people of the opposite sex with family. Allow these dreams to fade away. It is not beneficial to you and your cousin for you to nurture these interests. Take this as a sign to move toward developing a relationship with someone else. Have a great day, Bayar!

    Alright, so I have a boyfriend but before we started dating, I had this huge crush on someone. Last night I had a dream about them (my old crush), we were sitting in a classroom and he grabbed my hand and told me he loved me. All of a sudden he pushed this girl, so I told him to run after her and apologize. My heart began to sink as he left, when he came back he was very distant. Later on, my locker was jammed and he helped me, but he was holding me from behind. It’s weird because we had almost all the same classes together and he always helped me with my locker issues. I moved away before I could tell him my feelings or even get his number. This isn’t my first dream about him, but it’s the only dream that’s really stuck with me.

      Your dream about your old crush can fade from your thoughts. You are currently in a relationship, so it would be best to allow dreams of other people to diminish from your life. Take any positive energy from your dreams about other people and put it into your current relationship. If you do not want to be with your boyfriend, then leave him before you reach out to someone else. Have a great day, Jenny!

      Your dream is a reflection of the many influences in your life. Perhaps this dream should influence your future actions. Allow the positive energy from this dream to work through you as you move into the future. Remember the gratitude of your teacher and the closeness of your friend. Enjoy life and have a great day, Sophie!

      Your dream is a manifestation of the influences in your life and the memories of your past. Take this dream as a reminder to develop new relationships and strengthen old ones. Try to reach out to someone in your past and try to become closer to someone that you already know. Best of luck, Diljit!

Speak directly and honestly with him about your thoughts and feelings. Perhaps try to go out with him on a nature walk or anywhere where the two of you can be alone and speak freely. Have a great day, Kayla!

      Your crush is there because you like him. He holds you in the dream and is romantic because you are hopeful that he could like you back in real life if he gave you a chance. Unfortunately, dreams can only show your own subconscious thoughts, fears and desires, so there is no way to know if your crush does or could like you back in real life. You can always hope though!

      It most likely means that you want him to come closer to you and make a move in real life. He does not talk to you in the dream though because you are uncertain how he feels in real life or if he plans on making a move at some point. You can always hope though! Best of luck, Janni!
