What Does It Mean to Dream About a Guy You’ve Never Met?

By on March 7, 2018

Different people will have different ideas when it comes to dreams. There are some people who believe that dreams are just your mind’s way of getting you to think of something, remember something, or tell you something. A hidden and secret language that your mind understands, but the rest of you doesn’t.

Other people believe that dreams are just that — a dream. Something that the mind puts together, while you are sleeping. A glitch, perhaps? Usually, nothing to pay too much attention to.

Dreams (and sleeping, as a whole) have been studied pretty extensively by scientists, eager to learn about what happens not just to the body, but also to the mind, when you close your eyes. These studies seem to suggest a theory that you can’t ‘make up’ an entirely brand new person, in your head, so that person that you dream of MUST be someone that you have seen or met at least once before. This doesn’t mean that you might have had a conversation with them, or even interacted with them in anyway, but just that you have seen them somewhere, at some time, and they are now featuring in your dreams — your subconscious. You may have bumped past them in the shopping mall, or maybe even just been on the same bus as him one day. Whatever the case, if you believe these experts, you will always dream of someone that you have come across already.

What Does It Mean to Dream About a Guy You’ve Never Met?

Before you look into the interpretational meaning about dreaming of someone you’ve never met, you must first take a closer look into what is actually happening, in the dream.

If you are flirting with the guy you’ve never met in your dream, it would suggest that you are lacking some form of affection or intimacy in your life. Some dream experts even believe that you could be embarking on a brand new relationship in the near future, almost as if your dream were predicting the future for you. This doesn’t mean that you are going to get into a relationship with the person in question (the guy in the dream), however.

If you are already in a relationship with someone else and you dream of a guy you like but have never met, it could be a sign that your current relationship is missing something, probably affection, intimacy, the flirting that you experienced when you first started dating, and that you’re looking for it somewhere else.

Sticking with the theme of being in a relationship, if you dream that you are single (and the guy you’ve met is in the dream), it doesn’t mean that you should BE single. This is not your mind’s way of telling you to break up with your current BAE and jump ship to the new guy (who you’ve never met), but it does mean that, once again, something is missing for you. In this scenario, rather than missing out on the intimacy or affection, you could be feeling overpowered — missing out on the power. Perhaps you aren’t standing up for yourself in a situation where you should?

If you’re dreaming about the guy you’ve never met and he materializes in a ‘secret admirer’ form, there IS a chance that your subconscious is telling you that you’re missing out on something, once again, but this time, you’re missing out on something that is happening around you. It could be that the guy you’ve never met likes you, but you just haven’t picked up on those signals yet. At the same time, it could also mean that something else is going on around you — NOT related to your love life — that you haven’t yet picked up on. You need to wake up and open your eyes to your surroundings. It’s your head’s way of telling you to pay attention to something.

In Conclusion:

Although it might be very nice to think that you’re dreaming of the love of your life in your dream, there’s a much higher chance that your dreams are telling you that you’re missing out on something in yourself. Your subconscious is making you aware that you’re lacking in intimacy or affection, or that you’re not getting something that you need from your current relationship or single status. Dreaming of a guy you’ve never met (and really liking him) when you’re single is usually a sign that you’re ready to date, or maybe that you’re missing the closeness you would feel when happily coupled up.

What Does It Mean to Dream About a Guy You’ve Never Met 3

If you’re dreaming of a guy you’ve never met when you in a relationship already, don’t be too quick to jump ship into what looks like the better option. This new guy might seem like a dream come true, but dream’s rarely come true in ‘real life’, and the grass isn’t always greener on the other side. Dreaming about someone else when you’re already part of a couple is a sign that you need to pay attention to what’s going on there, not invite someone else into the mix.

    I had a strange dream. It took place in another country where I went on vacation with my sister. We were staying at a vacation house we rented, but these two guys I never met before were renting it too. One of the guys I never met before kept flirting with me (at least, I think that’s what he was doing…he kept wanting to do things with me alone, he was always super funny, outgoing, touchy-feely, & nice to me) then when his best friend came over to stay at the vacation home, I talked to him & found out that we have a lot in common. We would talk a lot in private, but the first guy would get clingy. He would always try to occupy my attention too from the second one. Then a storm hit, a pretty bad one, and the two guys got into a pretty bad fight over me. Then I woke up and the dream ended.

    What all do dreams like these mean, when it’s two guys you’ve never met flirting with you?

    (I think they were anyway…I’ve never dated before so I wouldn’t know.)

      Your dream is a reflection of various social influences in your life. You and your sister likely are interested in traveling. The behavior of the man in your dream is a manifestation of your personal desires. You may be interested in maintaining a new relationship. Ensure that you share your kindness and compassion with everyone in your life. Have a great day, Luna!

    I had a dream that some guy about my age was trying to flatter me, I don’t think I’ve ever seen him before and I wouldn’t know him in real life but I do remember the back and forth flirting. (Both him and I were flirting back) I’m alsmot 19 and I most certainly feel a lack of love but in my current situation but I cannot do much. I don’t remember having such a satisfying dream, it felt real, as if someone I didn’t know was really into me which made me quite shy in the dream, I kept needing to go somewhere to freshen up as if I was trying to impress him, although I don’t remember wearing any cosmetics. The dream unfortunately finished, by my alarm clock, with him smiling at me.

    Out of the dream:

    The strange thing is that only very recently my ex came back and started texting me, trying to earn my forgiveness in the arguments we’ve had and at least wanted to stay friends. This is an internet relation ship so it’s been a little hard knowing his exact intentions but we’ve known each other for about 3 and a half years, even though we were together for the first year.

    I’ve stated and have made a promise to my self that I cannot engage in a relationship with this man because he simply isn’t good for me, his mental state wouldn’t help mine, we’d be bringing each other down and his lack of confidence is something I don’t find very flattering. So I agreed to stay friends with him but in no way do I intend to peruse a relationship with this guy as the dream dictionary may suggest.

    I’ve been on several sites and one says to be careful because my conscious is trying to warn me that someone is trying to get into a relationship with me and that I should stay out of it.

    So all in all I dreamt that a cute stranger flirted with me as I also flirted back and I’m not all too sure what it means. I know I have a lack of intimacy in life but is that all this dream is trying to tell me, is it related to the ex that came back or is there a deeper meaning?

      There are various influences in your life which may have manifested in your dream. Your interpretation is likely correct. You have already made the decision to main attempt to nourish a relationship with your ex. On top of that, you are currently in a relationship. Do not attempt to nourish a new romantic relationship while you are currently in a relationship. Determine what you want for your future at this time, and take appropriate action. Have a great day, Rose!

      Your dreams are reflections of the influences that are in your life. You may be interested in having children. It is possible that the people that you may be interested in nourishing relationships with are another race, which may have manifested as the children in your dream. You may not be able to find the person in your dream, as your desire for children may be strong than your desire for a partner. Have a great day, Taylor!

    I’m a Black young woman and I’m having a baby dream but different the first time I had 3 children 2 boys 1girl. The first dream I was at the club had a 1 night stand and left the guy the next day. Years later my kids are older but I can’t find the father to tell him about the kids a have a unknown friend who knows about him is helping me look. The thing is the child is mixed because the man was not black. I was happy to have my kids but sad about the father. The second dream starts of we’re I’m pregnant and having the baby soon I have the child and after we have a party where my baby is 1 and he is pretty bad but happy like my first boys in the first dream. My grandmother who has passed is there helping me with the child at the party. But again I can’t find the father even though I’m inlove with my child I’m sad about not being able to find him. But again my child is mixed but the father is out there I just can reach him like last time. Why are my kid mixed and why is it I can’t find him.

          You have had dreams about this person before you met him. You are aware of his social relationships, so if he is single, then determine what you want for your future. Decide what type of relationship you believe is appropriate. If he is not married or in a relationship, then nourish your relationship by spending additional time with him in person. Continue to share your kindness and compassion at all times. Have a great day, Princess!
