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.

What Does It Mean to Dream About a Guy You’ve Never Met 1

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.

What Does It Mean to Dream About a Guy You’ve Never Met 2

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.

      The dream may mean you feel like you want something out of the ordinary to happen or for some kind of sign to show you the next step in your life.

      This dream may just mean you want someone to pay attention and like you in your waking life, so your subconscious created a guy who has a crush on you in your dream.

    I dreamt about this guy they came into my job and he was a very attractive guy. Then we just like caught each other’s eyes and he ended up asking me to help him like find some clothing because I work in a retail store. And he was in there for a good hour and a half just looking at clothes and me helping him. And I ended up getting his Snapchat and phone number but I was too scared to like text his phone number so we’re just texting through Snapchat and we ended up hanging out with everything what does that mean because I’ve been having these dreams for the past week or so

      The dream shows that you want to find someone to love and be with in your waking life. You may not have anyone in your real life who could play that role, so your subconscious made this guy to play the part in your dreams.

    I had a dream that i was somewhere with my friends and i met the boy and his family and then we were always flirting and it was clear he liked me and i was starting to like him. Also his older brother liked me He. had a secret but when i found out he was fine because i helped him with it. Then we ended up leaving where we were but i bumped into his brother so i asked for his number so i could contact the boy. Later I saw the boy with a girl who clearly liked him and whenever i came over to talk i thought he was ignoring so i went off. His brother found me and cheered me up because I was really missing the boy. Then later on i went to ask him out but the other girl got there first but got rejected and then he said yes to me. I felt like I was in love.

      The fear experienced within your dream may be an indication of a concern or stress in your life. Be mindful of your experiences and social relationships.

    I’ve been speaking to this guy online. I like him and he says he likes me but we haven’t got round to seeing each other due to how busy we are. I dreamed about seeing him in a suit in my house in my dream! What could this mean?

      The two of you are interested in maintaining a relationship with each other, though it is certain that the two of you are busy. The suit could be an indication of your thoughts regarding his professionalism or his career. Make a decision about what you want for the future of this relationship, and speak with him about your thoughts and feelings. Nourish your relationship by spending additional time together in person.

      Your dream was an indication of your desire to receive emotional support. Ensure that you are kind with everyone in your life, as this will bring you benefits in the future.

      The person in your dream may have been an amalgamation of various qualities you find attractive in a partner. This person may appear in your life in the future.

      He may have appeared within your dream as a placeholder for someone else. You may be interested in maintaining a new social or emotional relationship at this time.

    So in real life I’m single and in the dream I was too. So I was helping a little girl that I’ve never met go to school so I was walking with her and there was a cute guy riding his bike next to us and I saw him and he looked at the little girl and stopped riding his bike because he knew her and wanted for talk to her. So I was talking to him and all these girl were coming up to him like trying to get his number or sc or anything but he kept on ignoring them. Eventually I got sick of it and shouted at one of the girl saying “No go away!” And then he laughed and I said sorry and he said it was fine and then the dream ended.

      You may want to explore and record the world. You may know someone with similar interests. If there is something that you want to experience, then put your energy toward it.

      Your boyfriend is right–I really wouldn’t worry about it. Sometimes, these dreams are totally random. It’s also possible that you just want to spice things up romantically, so your subconscious sent the random guy into your dream–in real life, you can spice things up by enjoying a weekend together or buying new lingerie instead. Whatever the case, I wouldn’t read too much into it.

    I am a huge game addict and I play this MMO game and socialise with a lot of people on there. This guy that I have been talking to recently is really good to me, but I’ve had about 4 dreams of him within a week. Strange, right? I can’t quite remember much because it was a few weeks ago but I remember in the first two dreams we kissed. Weird, right? The first was in a cottage or something and thr second was in a field of flowers, I remember a few white flowers and green flowers. And on the third dream, we were all together (my other group of friends) sitting on the bottom floor of a ship and sharing fairy floss together. I was minding my own business until the guy nudged me and offered me fairy floss from his hand. The weirdest part was that I took his hand like it was some giant lollipop and started to kitten-lick it. It wasn’t awkward in the dream because it seemed normal and he looked like he’d even enjoyed it. No one else was looking either, they just laughed and joked amongst each other and we were just sitting on floor, arms nd legs spread out in a comfortable position. In a ship, mind you. Then it was time to go to sleep and I just remember that the boy and I were talking to each other in another part of the ship. The even more weird part, there was a girl on board in a wheelchair. Not just any girl on a wheelchair, my classmate!! So she had this smug look on her face, not talking or making a noise and somehow, the glass windows at the sides of the ship were open and she just slid out of the ship. Out on the water. So I looked at him normally to see if he saw and he shrugged, not caring. “Aren’t we going to help her??” I asked him but he didn’t seem to care. Instead he oddly gave me a peck on the cheek.

    I’ve never met this person in person before, any help on what this may mean??

      The dream may show that you want a romance, and your subconscious mind decided to use this guy at random. It is also possible that you are starting to develop feelings for him, so you started dreaming that you were interacting in real life, even though you have never actually met in person.

    I’m my dream I’m texting a guy and ask for him to send me a picture of himself he sends me three different pictures of himself in different cloths and poses but I don’t recognise this person at all but his pictures are as clear as if I’d got them sent to me when awake( normally if I see a picture in my dreams there blurry) we continue to text back and forth then I’m stood with the guy talking at which point I walk up, what could this mean

      The dream may show that you want to find someone to talk to and be with. You may feel like there is a lot about this guy you don’t know yet, which is why you don’t actually recognize the pictures he sends you. Perhaps your subconscious mind is also trying to tell yourself to be wary until you know more about him.

      You may want to have a romantic relationship, or you may just want to have someone in your life who finds you attractive and can be introduced to your parents. Whatever the case, there is no way to know how he feels from just a dream unless you already know how he feels in real life.
