If You Had a Dream of Someone, Is It Because They Think of You?

By on October 6, 2018

When you have a dream about someone out of the blue, you will most likely wake up thinking “why”. And why wouldn’t you? Having a dream about someone can be completely random and leave you feeling stumped. Luckily there’s a few different reasons why you may be dreaming about someone in particular.

They Are Thinking About You

A lot of people believe that when you have a dream about someone, they are in fact thinking about you. However, there is technically no scientific evidence to back this up.

Keep this in mind, though: just because it hasn’t been researched in depth and we don’t have solid evidence this is what your dream means, doesn’t make it untrue. In fact there are plenty instances in which someone ended up dreaming about someone while they were thinking of them. Coincidence? Maybe. But you can certainly consider this a possible reason for dreaming about this certain someone.


You See Them Often

Dreams are typically just a reflection of our day-to-day lives, our minds recurring places, people, and events that have happened recently. If you notice that you tend to see the person in your dream on a regular basis, they may have popped up for literally no reason at all.

While this solution to discovering what your dream means is rather basic, it can take the edge off if you find that you’re dreaming about someone who you’re not particularly close or fond of.


They Represent a Feeling

When you have a dream about someone in particular, it could be that they are representing a feeling that you have. What you need to do is take a deeper look at the person in your dream. What type of feelings did they bring to the table?

For instance, if you are having a dream about an ex-boyfriend that you despise, then you may just be having some pent up anger in your life that cam through in the representation of a person you can’t stand.

On the other hand, if you’re dreaming about someone who is successful in life and you look up to them, you may be having an urge to improve your life and become more successful in life just like them.

You need to consider when and where this person was in your life and what type of emotions and feelings they gave for you. Was it happiness? Sadness? Anger? The dream may have nothing to with them, but rather an emotion you’re feeling while you sleep.


They Represent a Want

This special person you’re dreaming about can actually just be a representation of a want you have in your life.

Let’s go back to the ex-boyfriend scenario. Perhaps the two of you ended on good terms. You are no longer sad or mad about the breakup and you don’t miss him at all. If you ended up having a dream about him, it doesn’t necessarily mean you want to be with him again. It may mean that you have a want or desire to be in a relationship and have that feeling of love again.

Dreaming about someone with your dream job? That may be just because you have a deep desire for having that career, and it’s shown through this person.


At the end of the day, if you are wondering if dreaming about someone means that they are thinking of you, the answer is truly uncertain. You must take a deeper look into your dream and all other possibilities before settling on a decision as to what your dream means.


If you are able to actually ask this person without sounding completely crazy, then that is a huge bonus! Go ahead and put your dream to the test and see If they were thinking of you. You never know what their answer may be!

    Ok so I had this dream about a guy that I kind of know and I’ve always thought of him as an acquaintance. He is pretty good looking too, but I have never been into him. When we first met, he was not the biggest fan of me, but then we became better acquainted. I still wasn’t a big fan of him because he didn’t like me as a person the first time we met so I’ve always let that tick me off and never really tried to build like a friendship with him. A couple months ago, I wrote a feature story on him for my university newspaper and I learned about a hard time in his life where he did something inspiring and I began to respect him, but again, I did not have feelings.

    I hadn’t seen him in a while until in the past two weeks I had seen him 4 times at different social gatherings, one of them being his graduation party, which I went to with my friends. So one thing that happened was that at the end of his graduation party when I was leaving, he turned around to give me like a hug or high five, I wasn’t really sure, and I saw him for a split second and then I just kind of swerved him (this was because I wasn’t a huge fan of the guy), and I’m not sure why. We had a good laugh about it though with our mutual friends later.

    So fast forward one week, and this was yesterday, I had a very vivid dream about him driving me and my friends home. I was in the front passenger seat and we had a really good conversation in the dream and I really liked him and at the end he was driving just me and he was holding my hand and I just felt so good and so safe with him for some reason. That dream really changed my perspective of him and now I see him as somebody like that and I am not sure what it means.

      Your dream is a reflection of your social and emotional desires. Your recent interactions likely influenced this dream. It seems that you are interested in maintaining a relationship with him. Make a decision about what you want for the future of this relationship. Speak with him about your thoughts and feelings, and give him an opportunity to share himself with you as well. Have a great day, Richara!

    Hey, I’m Sharon. I have a bestfriend but actually we are more than that but we never declare we are couple due to some reason. But lately, he said he need time and space since i caught him lie to me about his family. But that’s not a big deal. Now, we still texting but once or twice a day. Just morning wish and silent. I started to think that probably our relationship will end. But every morning he the one who always text me Good Morning wish. Before this, he used to call me babe, but now he call me by name. What do you think of this? Is bcs he doesn’t feel interested in me anymore?

      The two of you are maintaining a relationship, and you feel that his feelings for you may have changed. If you believe that he is no longer interested in maintaining a relationship with you, then determine what you want for the future of this relationship. Speak with him about your thoughts and feelings. Give him an opportunity to share himself with you. If he ignores you or treats you poorly, then you are aware of his feelings regarding your relationship. Have a great day, Sharon!

    Ok listen, I absolutely hate this guy, but I can’t stop thinking about him. I have dreams about him occasionally and it seems like he might like me. AND the major difference is I’m in 6th grade and he’s in 8th and his brother is in my grade!! Does this mean I like him?

      You have stated that you do not like this person. This means that you are not interested in developing a relationship with him. It is likely that you share a social connection with him. If you determine what you are interested in maintaining a relationship with him, then speak with him about your thoughts and feelings. If you are not interested in him, then determine what you want for your future without him. Have a great day, Priya!

      Your dream seems to be a reflection of your previous relationship with your ex. The two of you are no longer together, so it is possible that something else reminded you of this relationship. It seems as though this dream could be a reflection of your negative memories. Allow your thoughts of your ex to fade, and focus your emotional energy elsewhere. Ensure that you share your kindness and compassion with everyone in your life. Have a great day, S!

    I like this boy (crush) in my math class. We stopped talking because he didn’t like one of my ex-friends. We then reconnected and i followed him around all the time. He said we couldn’t be friends because i was “creepy”. I try to live my everyday life without him, but i can’t. We both liked each other, and i want to fix things, and reconnect. How do i do that??

      He has shared his thoughts and feelings with you. He is not interested in nourishing a relationship with you at this time. Allow thoughts of him to fade. Continue to share your kindness and compassion with him. It is possible that his feelings for you may grow over time. The best option may be to be patient. Have a great day, Amber!

    (I am a girl)I had a dream with my kinda crush..since we finished secondary school i decided to forget about that person and stopped watching her snap stories so i forgot about her since i havnt watched anything to remind me of her. however i started dreaming again of that person..i was in the mcdonalds with a friend and i wanted water so i asked my friend… if i could have some water . she told me “of course go get some ice” i stood up to get the ice and saw my crush when my crush saw me she was surprised and did a smirk i just got nervous and asked myself why? Of all mcdonalds why this one? My crush was supposed to leave mcdonalds now since she was finished with the food but since she
    saw me she started following me and asked for another menu… she started making conversations with me i cant quite remember but i remeber she asked me some questions that maked me replied and other questions that maked me being silent and other questions that maked me nervous? but i remember in one of those conversation my crush told me “i missed you” i didnt say anything i just looked into her eyes and she smiled…she was talking too much to me.. that she even forgot about her menu so the lady had to remind her she took her menu.. and said bye to me with a wink.. i went back to my seat and my crush and her friends could see me and my friend..but we couldnt see them they were at the back of us..in reality my crush is asthmatic..so in the dream after a while she started getting asthma attack and was all sweaty she was moving a lot.. and got embarrased since she didnt want me to see her like that her friends and me and my friend took her to her house and then when we arrived to her house there was this girl that was practically all the time in the dream but never spoke just kept giving me dirty looks and told me to fuck off.. then when we arrived to my crush house that girl appeared out of nowhere again.. that girl didnt want me close to my crush but my crush didnt give a f*** my crush kept talking to me and wanted to be with me my crush friends were shook about the girl appearing like that and the girl that appeared out of nowhere like that said “what..you thought i wouldnt come?….. And then i woke up. I dont know what it means but i would love to know because i havnt seen my crush snap stories for a good 3 months now and i forgot about her i havnt even thought of her.. so why did i have to dream ?

      Your dreams are reflections of your thoughts and feelings. Your strong emotional connection with your crush may have manifested due to a memory of him. Perhaps attempt to reach out to your crush. Determine what you believe is appropriate at this time. Ensure that you share your kindness and compassion with everyone in your life. Have a great day, Litxie!
