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.

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.

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 this dream recently. btw i’m single rn. it seemed that the guy and i were really close. i never met him before and i don’t know him. we were walking out of a mall and he confessed to me through a video(?) or a letter, i’m not really sure. but anyways he smiled at me and i could really see that he liked me. i kept on hugging him and i think i liked him too. we had a really great bond together. what does that mean for me? does my dream symbolize a future that i will have?

      The dream shows your desire to meet someone, fall in love and enjoy spending time with them. You may not have someone who can play this role in your waking life, so your subconscious mind created this guy to play the role of your love interest instead.

    I had a dream last night with this guy I have never meet and he was soo handsome, we were soo happy toguether. All the time we where smiling. In the dream we where toguether in a relationship and it felt like he was the right guy, the one I was gonna stay for the rest of my life and I could see in his eyes that he loved me soo much as well.

    (That guy I dreamed of, I followed him months ago on Instagram and felt attracted by him long months ago and then I unfollowed him long months ago because I felt he will never notice me) then I forgot about him( in other words) it had passed moths I don’t see him in social media. I don’t even know him, either though of him before lol.

    I’m single in real life but in the dream I was in a relationship with that Instagram guy. Kinda kinda famous.

      The dream may have occurred because you want to find love and a romance like this in your waking life, so your subconscious mind picked someone to play the part. The fact that you had a crush on this guy previously made it more likely that he would end up being the one to play your love interest in the dream. Meanwhile, the fact that he is kind of famous may mean you want to be recognized or admired in your waking life.

      This dream seems to be a reflection of various qualities that you may find attractive in a partner. It is certain that the various influences in your life have colored this dream. Take this time to determine what you want for your future. If there is someone that you want to nourish a relationship with, then speak with that person about your thoughts and feelings.
