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!

      Your dream is a reflection of the closeness that you feel toward these two people. You may be concerned that they are interested in developing a relationship with the other person, but do not allow that to influence you. This is simply a dream that reflects the concerns, thoughts, and feelings that exist within you. Share your positive energy with both of them. Have a great day, Shanu!

      Your dream is a reflection of your concerns about your mother. It is clear that you have a strong emotion connection with her. Allow the negative energy of this dream to fade from your mind. Instead, allow it to influence you to treat your mother with kindness and compassion at all times. Have a great day, Alfo!

      Your dream is a reflection of your emotional connection to this person. If he is married and has children, then do not attempt to develop a relationship with this person. It is likely that you care for him, and that is perfectly fine. Share your kindness and compassion with him and every other person that you meet. Have a great day, Kesha!

      Your dream may be a reflection of your desire to enter into a relationship with your crush. Speak directly and honestly with him about your thoughts and feelings. This will give him the chance to do the same. At that point, you can choose to nurture your relationship. Have a great day, Andrea!

      Your dreams are manifestations of influences that you have in your life. There is no reason to feel concerned about the end times. People have been dreaming and telling stories about the end times since humans started dreaming. Allow this dream to fade from your thoughts. Look to the future with a positive lens. Have a great day, Alfo!

      Your dream is a reflection of your desire to succeed in the tasks that you take on. You may also have a hidden interest in family planning. Perhaps allow this dream to influence you toward kindness and compassion, as these are excellent traits for all people to develop. Have a great day, Alfo!

    also i had another dream about this same crush.. so i was walking out of school to catch the bus and i saw him but i didn’t walk up to him yet. i was trying to find the bus with one of my friends and then he was standing in front of me so i walked up to him to give him a hug but he shook his head. by this time i thought i did something wrong until he was like “no, i want your hand.” but i couldn’t hear him at first because he was talking low. so i was like “say that again. i can’t hear you.” and so he told me again and i gave it to him and i asked him “why?” and he was like “because i remember you saying how you wanted to see how it felt.” i only told my closest friend about me wanting to know exactly how his fingers felt while they were locked with mine so i was shocked when he said that. then he started rubbing his hand against my palm. then my friend, kendalyn was like “aweee, goals.” so i started smiling and looked at my crush and said “no, not like this.. like this.” then i locked my fingers with his and LORD IT FELT SO GOOD! then he started smiling and then we were walking around until my bus came and then i layed my head on his shoulder. then when my bus came he walked me up the bus steps and then he picked me up, gave me a hug, kissed my cheek while grabbing my butt. then i started laughing and was like “danzelllll?” then he started smiling and got off of the bus. what does this mean?

      It is clear that you have strong feelings for this person. You will want to speak directly and honestly with him about your thoughts and feelings. It is highly likely that you are close with this person if you are having such strong feelings for him. Speak with him tomorrow. Have a great day, Amayah!

    i had a dream about my crush a few weeks back and right now in this moment we aren’t really talking like i’d really want us to. but anyways.. so i was walking into the mall to get me some socks from nike and he was there with a friend. he glanced at me and i looked away because i didn’t want to make it obvious that i missed him very deeply. when i finally looked at him he smiled at me and i exchanged. we were hesitant in if we wanted to give each other a hug but in the end we did anyways. he wrapped his arms around my wait and he was hugging me so tight. i layed my head on his shoulder and placed my arms around his neck and we just stood there for a moment. i don’t know, it just felt so good, like we didn’t want to let each other go. then he slowly let me go, like he didn’t want to and i looked at the floor and i smiled. when i looked up he was staring at me before he walked away.

      Your dream is a reflection of your feelings and influences that you are having in your life. If you want to reach out to this person, then do so. It is also possible that this person is no longer in your life for a reason. Take this time to determine if you want to speak with him at this time. If you do, then be clear about your feelings. Have a great day, Amayah!

      Your dream is a reflection of your concerns regarding your feelings. It is likely fear playing with your mind. Instead of allowing this dream to bring negative feelings in your life, it would be best for you to speak directly and honestly with your crush about your feelings. This will allow him to share his thoughts and feelings with you as well. Have a great day, Lindylou!

    I recently met this guy and after awhile of hanging out together, I started to have feelings for him. I asked him about relationships a couple weeks ago and he wasn’t interested. I had a dream about him during my nap a few minutes ago. We were at a party. He was sitting next to me. My friend was sitting a few feet away from us. My crush was holding my hand. Then suddenly he tried to kiss me and I pulled away. When I pulled away I looked at my friend cause I was scared that she would see us. I guess I was shy. Then he tried again and we smooched. I quickly pulled away again saying while smiling ” there are people. ” I glanced over at my friend and she saw the whole thing. She smiled at me and I smiled back at her. My crush tried a few more times kissing me but I didn’t go in for it. So we just enjoyed the party then after awhile he tried again then eventually I gave in and we started kissing for about a minute. I pulled away again and told him ” we shouldn’t be kissing, there are people around. ” Then he said ” oh my gosh ” and laughed. He again tried kissing me again but I kept pulling away. He told me ” we hardly have time together so I just wanted to kiss you. ” Then my friend asked ” why don’t you guys have time together? ” We both didn’t say anything. But honestly I was actually happy that we kissed and although I pulled away I wished we kissed more. I woke up after that. It felt so real.

      Your dream is a reflection of numerous influences that you have in your life. It is clear that you have some thoughts about developing a relationship with this person. You may not be interested in sharing your affections in public. And it is clear that you are interested in how your friends view you. These are all great things and you may find that you will be best served by speaking directly and honestly with your crush about your feelings. Have a great day, Bao!

    I had a dream last night where I was walking around the school naked feeling embarrassed then my crush came to help me out, giving me a little piece of clothing to cover up the front of my body, either that or I no longer felt like I needed to find any clothes. We then went around the school to find me something proper to wear. It was a nice dream because when they arrived I no longer felt embarrassed. We were laughing and talking the entire time until I found something and then the dream just ended with me waking up. It feels like a combination of the naked dream and the crush dream, should it mean something? I hadn’t even thought about them that night (although I did see them in the day and we aren’t even close).

If he feels the same about you, then he can share his feelings with you as well. If he does not want to develop a relationship with you, then continue to remain his friend. Best of luck, Lover!

If he has not given you any reason to believe that he is interested in you, then he may not be interested in you. However, it is certainly possible that he may have feelings for you. Have a great day, Jude!

    I didn’t think of her, she just appeared in my dream all of a sudden. She cared about my feeling but also made me cry. We were looking at each other mostly, i was trying to touch her hand out off control, like my mind was attached to her. After hours and hours, we were ar the school, my brother and the others were drinking (they are 13-14-15 years old) i didn’ care that much cuz i was feeling lonely and my heart was hurting. So i walked away from the crowd to a small place that we really don’t have in our current highschool, it was full of water in the areas like it rained. I sat down and played with the water that was just 2 steps away from me. (Btw: when i touched her, she looked at me like i was weirdo or something) Then she came and sat REALLY close to me. I tried to avoid it and played with the water. (Btw the place we have been, were parts of minigame kind of things and many parts of my school and only one part of my highschool, it was basically changing and adding sooo much textures and things that i was confused where i was) She started to talk with me, she was like “Are you okay, Hi, how are you? Why are you like this” and lots of things that i can’t remember. And the only thing that i remember THAT I said like a f*cking douchebag was that no one cares about me and why she was with me when she has so many friends and that i don’t have any friends, so it got messed up all those things… So i just got away from there and started to cry. All night it continued like that. I saw her crying too. At that time i was trying to get to the highest point of the texturized minigame thing that we just finished with the crowd. She was leaving but i tried to talk to her. My dream just stopped there where i was about to talk to her.
