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!

    Also, before he kissed me directly, he gave me a quick (but deep) kiss on the cheek and then when he kissed me: on the lips softly with a quick French in there then that was it.
    In the dream, we were going into the hole (the special place) and in the entrance when I got stuck (very tightly for some reason-strangely since the opening was a big hole)I got stuck and I told him “I love you” at which part he pulled me free and after a deep, meaningful hug asked “Like lovers?” and I answered “Yes..” (a bit awkwardly but not so ashamed)
    Then the kiss happened. When we went into the hole we were in danger but as soon as he pulled me through, the imminent danger was very far off.After the kiss, he motioned for me to follow him so we could be safe from the danger. Then for some reason, He was sitting down holding me(I was sitting on his lap) jostling around (and while I was anxious I felt it was okay; like we were going to get involved slightly more) at which point my younger sibling came in as an older child, a boy, and started making fun of me sitting on his lap.While I was hesitant, I didn’t seem to mind.

      Your dreams are reflections of your desires. Allow the circumstances of your waking life make decisions for your reality. If you find that you are comfortable reaching out to him, then do so. If you want to develop a relationship with him in real life, then you need to speak directly and honestly with him about your thoughts and feelings. Have a great day, Damsel!

        I have been thinking.
        Maybe when it’s the right time
        (when we’ve been friends for a while)
        then I might confess.
        Thank you for answering.

    Today (or rather last night) I had a dream of someone who I felt great affection, love, and desire for in my dream (a crush). This person seems to be a manifestation of my real life crush who appears in my dream as: older (about two or three years)than me,looks a bit different (but same colored eyes and hair), is taller than me, seems to like me, interacts, talks, and is affectionate with me, cares for me, and ultimately (before I woke up) kissed me with great affection. In the dream we would have a small hidden spot in a room in which he and I would just lay or sit next to each other and talk sbout random things or just think. In my dream, as I went to hang out with him, my Father forbid me to do something (he said “Name! You had better not-” angrily at which point I waved/cut him off by saying “Yeah, I know. I won’t do anything today.” The ‘next day’ in the dream we kissed.) All my other dreams of my crush have him distorted or as a different person who says “Who are you?” (only once I had that dream.) or just me staring with great longing toward him or trying to say hello awkwardly which he says “Hi” then leaves. In all my other dreams, except this one, I have had a sense of fear and unreadiness. In real life -even though I want to- I’m kinda scared of getting involved in a relationship with someone; In ‘today’s’ dream I felt a sense of readiness and tranquility like no other. In real life, my parents tell me to not have a relationship or get involved with boys until you’re at least older(and believe me, though I’m not 17, I’m most definitely NOT some crazy 12 year old.). In real life I have tried to make friends with him but he doesn’t really react meaning he’s like hi(one time -_-) but never says hi when I pass him or vice-versa. I think my mother knows I like him because at a certain time she began talking ALOT about hw he (and only he,mind you) was a bad choice and that I should never date him. I think I may have been too friendly or dropped too many hints as he’s kinda awkward and never talks to me unless he has too and when I reply he looks surprised. I also think he knows I like him (though I have never told anyone) and tends to stay far away from me. We are two months apart in age (he’s the older one). I’m also not a creepy stalker like some people. Please help me..

      It sounds as though you have a lot of influences in your life. You have made an excellent determination about your feelings and the actions that you should take. If he is not interested in developing a relationship with you and your mother does not want you to date him, then allow him to fade from your thoughts. If he reaches out to you in the future, then determine what you want for your life at that time. Have a great day, Damsel!

      Your dream is a a reflection of your influences and concerns. It is likely that you are concerned that he is going to leave you. Allow this dream to fade, as it is simply a manifestation of your fears. Allow the negative aspects of this dream to fade. Treat everyone in your life with kindness and compassion. This will nourish your current relationship. Have a great day, Alfo!

    I keep having dreams with my crush. They are so vivid. I feel all the love and affection deep in my heart. Some dreams are about kissing, and others aren’t. The one from last night was bizarre. We were hugging, but we both knew we couldn’t kiss each other. I hugged him, and he was protecting me from something. He was even putting my shoes on, and was just so loving. In the dream, I felt so incredibly safe, and loved. I know it’s corny, but I wonder what does it mean? I adore him, we work together, and have an awesome working relationship, but why do I keep dreaming such deep loving dreams?

      This dream may be a reflection of your thoughts and feelings regarding this person. They may represent themselves, a stranger, or a reflection of you. The teeth may be signs that something is being lost, or partially lost, as the case may be. Allow this dream to influence you in a positive direction. Treat everyone in your life with kindness and compassion. Have a great day, Oklei!

    I had a dream about my crush and it was in my school gym. We were playing dodgeball or something and then she turned to a kid beside her and just kissed him repeatedly and they continued kissing on the floor and I just didn’t know what to say. I walk up to her and say is this what you really want? She replies to me “yes” and she walks away with him. As they walk away I experienced fear and jealousy. What does this mean?

    My dream was with my crush and he was trying to talk to me but i kept pushing him away and ignoring him because it was awkward. (I told him in real life that I liked him and he told me he didn’t like me) which is why it was awkward. I was talking louder than I usually do so he could over hear my conversations. I had gotten a cut on my arm and he got me a band aid but then he quickly left after that. I like him in the dream but I just can’t help that he does not like me. What does this mean? Could he possible like me now?

      This dream is a reflection of your thoughts and feelings regarding your current relationship. If he did not respond to you regarding your feelings about developing a relationship with him, then give him time. If you want to spend additional time with him, then that would help to strengthen your relationship. Look inward and determine what your want for your life at this time. Have a great day, Anon!
