    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!

      Hi.I’m 18 but no boyfriend since birth.I had this long time crush on someone, let us say its been 5 years. I had a dream about my crush for two consequtive nights. The first night, is all about me and him and we are in a relationship. My mom, who is in real life does not allow me to have a boyfriend seems happy about our relationship. My crush and I were holding hands and happy being together. In the second night that I dreamt about him. The first scenario is my classmates were inside a classroom and my crush was also there. (He is my classmate in real life). Then my cladsmates teased us. I told them I don’t have a feelings for him anymore. Then, my crush suddenly told me that likes me up until noe.(In real life, my crush and I once had this mutual understanding.) I walked out of the room because I was really mad about him telling me that. The we argued. I blamed him for being so heartless because he told me that he likes me but he had a past relationship with someone though our feelings were mutual. After that, He said sorry and asked me for another chance and were going to start all over again. I accepted it and forgave him. The last thing I could remember was we walked back in the room and he is having his sweet gestures on me. What shoupd I do? In real life, we don’t even talk to each other because it’s kinda awkward.

        It is common to not develop a romantic relationship until your adult life. Your dreams are reflections of your emotional and social connection with this person. The presence of your mother in your dream is a manifestation of your desire for this relationship to be approved of by your family. Determine what you want for your future. Speak with your mother about your thoughts and feelings. Her response will indicate her feelings on whether or not you should speak with your crush about your thoughts and feelings. Have a great day, Zari!

      Ethan had a girlfriend and she was really pretty and then they started making out… Then I started texting J(one of the guys I used to like) and he was like “people are starting to ship us so do you wanna go out?” and then I was like “HAHA NOPE. Lol Bye.” And then I started texting C (the guy I currently like) and he kept on sending me memes, which is really weird because like one he would never text me, two even if he did he wouldn’t text me MEMES, three that’s like super out of character for him, and four I would be the one sending the memes… and then I had to be in Math and History at the same time even though Math is at 7:30-8:15 and History is 10:15-11:30 and I was telling him about this and then he was like “tough luck. Wanna met somewhere?” And then I woke up.

      My dream was that my crush was waiting outside a store, and no one came to pick him up, so I walked over there and was talking to him and offered him a ride. We walked to my car and before we got in he put his arms around me and just stood there. We talked for a while like that. Then I decided to kiss him and fell laughing and saying “Oh my god I probably did that wrong!” And we both just laughed. The weird thing was that my friend was standing right there and was like “Ohhh my god” and he also has a girlfriend so I woke up feeling guilty lol.

          Your desires for freedom may have caused this dream to manifest a vehicle in your life. Perhaps you will find benefit in learning how to drive. Have a great day, Fan!

        This dream is a reflection of your emotional and social connection with your crush. The presence of your friend in your dream may be a manifestation of your desire for this relationship to be approved of by your friends. However, your crush is in a relationship. Do not attempt to develop a romantic relationship with him at this time. Continue to share your kindness and compassion with everyone in your life. Have a great day, Fan!

      Hi! There’s this girl at college i really like and she’s totally my crush, she’s seen me and obviously I’ve seen her, she doesn’t know my name and we have never spoken either, too, but we have kept long visual contact like 2 times, and last night i dreamt about her, it was like we were sat somewhere, and we were just talking, sharing information about each other, i remember it was my month of birth (we actually share the same month of birth) and some other information like that. what does this all mean? I really have this desire to approach her and get to know her, but i find her so interesting and attractive that it even gets intimidating for me, and im not usually like that with women.

        This dream is a reflection of your emotional and social connections and desires with your crush. If you are aware of her birth month, then it is likely that you have other knowledge of her as well. Take this time to determine what you want for your future. Since the two of you share eye contact, it is possible that she is interested in developing a relationship with you as well. Speak with her about your thoughts and feelings. Have a great day, Joe!
