    What Does it Mean When You Dream About Someone?

    By on September 22, 2014

    Dreams are mysterious. They open a realm of extreme curiosity and oddities that us as humans are always trying to decode. And when you throw certain people and events into the mix, dreams become all that more astonishing and questionable. What are these messages hidden in our dreams trying to tell us, anyways? If you’re wondering what it MIGHT mean when you dream about someone, here’s a few answers:


    Dreaming About Someone:

    Dreaming About Someone

    There are many, many reasons why you might be dreaming about someone in particular. What is your subconscious mind trying to tell you? The simplest reason could be that you simply fell asleep while thinking about this certain person. It’s only natural that you thought about them while you fell asleep, and they found their way inside of your sleep pattern. Another simple reason is that you’ve been thinking about this person a lot– maybe even more than you should be. They’ve been on your mind for quite some time throughout the day, so of course they’d be in your thoughts in your subconscious dreams as well.


    On the other hand, your dream might not even be about this person. It may be something much deeper. For instance, you might be dreaming about certain qualities this person’s personality: you are going through a stressful period in your life, and this person was a stressful impact in your life. Therefore, you’re dreaming about this stressful individual as a result of what’s going in your life at this moment. Your dream could also represent the relationship you had with someone. For example: maybe you had a very pleasant relationship with this individual, which may occur if you’ve entered into another great relationship with another person or you’re simply at a peaceful time in your life.


    Dreaming About Someone You Like:

    Dreaming about someone you like

    It’s not uncommon to dream about someone you’re interested in. After all, you’re probably thinking about them heavily on and off throughout the day, so of course they’re going to come into the realm of dreams. However, pay close attention to what happens IN the dream. For example: Did they like you back? This means that you are secure in yourself and have confidence. You may even have enough confidence to believe they like you back, which means you’re ready to take the next step towards advancing the two of yours relationship.

    On the other hand, if they didn’t like you back, this could be a signal that you are unconfident and believe you will be rejected by this certain someone.


    Dreaming About Someone You Love:

    Dreaming about someone you love

    When you dream about someone you are in love with, it’s important to pay close attention to what happens in your dream. Dreaming about someone you love, more often than not, will show you how deep your love and passion is with this individual. For instance: if you’re dream is nothing but happiness and joy, the two of you hand in hand on a romantic date, then it’s fair to say you have a deep connection with your partner. On the other hand, if there’s lots of fighting and instability, it could be a sign that you’re losing the connection with this certain someone. If you’re dreaming about your partner being with someone else, it could mean that you don’t feel as passionate as you once did with this person. However, although this type of dream is sure to stir up some unhappy emotions, it’s important to remember that it’s just a dream- no matter how vivid it was. Look to find the root of why you dreamt your lover with another person and build from that.


    Dreaming About Someone Who Has Passed:

    Dreaming about someone who has passed

    These dreams could either represent something very positive, or something negative. It all depends on what happened in the dream. For starters, a deceased person whom you were close to may visit you in a dream to offer you some comfort and closure. Did you have an issue with this person before they died? Maybe that issue was resolved at some point during your dream. Are you going through a rough patch in your life? Maybe this person has returned to give you some great comfort and give you some guidance on what you should do next.


    There are some spiritual theories that suggest some deceased individuals will return to disclose the location and reason of their death to those closest to them. For example: was this individual found dead but the killer was never found? They may disclose to you who did it. Was their body never found? They may tell you where the body was hidden. Depending on circumstances, it might be an insight that needs to be followed up with authorities.


    Dreaming About Someone in a Sexual Way:

    Dreaming about someone in a sexual way

    This type of dream, otherwise known to some individuals as “wet dreams” have an obvious reason: the individual is turned on to a certain extent and needs an outlet for their passions and desires. Now, it’s important to know that having a sexual dream about someone in particular doesn’t always mean you’re attracted to or even want to engage in that behavior with said person. It’s simply a way for sexual emotions to be outpoured and the person may vary. For example: just because you had a sexual dream involving your boss, doesn’t mean you’re sexually attracted or interested in him. You’ve been around him all day long, so of course he’s on your mind to a certain extent. Your subconscious paired the two and left you with such a dream. (But of course, if you’re dreaming about someone you’re interested in it could very well mean that you’re attracted to them and fulfilling your passion and relieving sexual tension through a dream).


    Dreaming About Someone Famous:

    Dreaming about someone famous

    There’s a couple of reasons why you might have a dream involving someone famous. The first most common interpretation is that you wish to better yourself or do what this individual is doing. For example: if you’re dreaming about a football star on your favorite team, you might want to become a football player and try to make your way to the top (or simply play for fun). On the other hand, dreaming about someone famous is also a way for us to get over disappointments in our lives: something big happened that let you down, but dreaming about this famous somebody who’s done something amazing gives us hope and happiness for the future.


    Other Reasons You Might Dream About Someone

    Other Reasons You Might Dream About Someone

    Sometimes when you dream about someone- no matter who it is- it has absolutely no correlation to the actually individual. Sometimes these people are there to symbolize things you’re feeling or things that are going on in your life. Sometimes these dreams are meant to help you see through problems, get over a bad experience, or bring you hope and joy. Never read too deep into the actual person- pay more attention to what is going on in the dream and how the dream made you felt. As we all know, dreams can be incredibly real sometimes- and sometimes that’s exactly what we need to see through situations or feeling in our current lives.


    What’s the craziest, weirdest, or most wonderful dream you’ve had involving a certain someone? What do you think the dream meant, and how did it make you feel?

      Last night I had a dream of me being in some kind of social setting.. A party or event perhaps? In this dream I was apart from other people, and everyone was doing their own thing although I did not see any faces. I was also dressed- I had a pink day dress with my hair down and done, makeup, and I wasn’t wearing my glasses.This man I had never seen before comes to me and wants to talk. He’s dressed in a business suit and at first I wanted to get away. Then he asks me if I want anything and I simply tell him I want a cookie. It was easier to simply say that, so that’s what I went with. It’s strange I suppose, but that’s what happened.. I like food. Not long later, he comes back with a vanilla wafer cookie. I take it, and from here it’s a little hard to remember exactly what happened. I forget most of my dreams. I think he hangs around me and then later, he goes and buys me a full pack of the same vanilla cookies and that’s it. I wake up..

      I don’t know what to make of it. What does it mean to dream of strangers? Much more, what does it mean when a stranger buys you stuff?

      In the dream, somehow I specifically knew he brought it for me- not sure if it means anything. Can you please give me an interpretation?

        Dreams of social gatherings and strangers are often reflections of your desires to establish new social relationships. Gifts are often manifestations of our influences and thoughts. The cookie may be a sign of innocence. You likely want to develop a relationship with someone that you trust and that you feel secure with. Allow this dream to guide you to share your kindness and compassion with everyone in your life. Have a great day, Ommm!

      Hi. I keep dreaming about my physically abusive ex. Most of them are him following me around the town we used to live in. Or him not letting me go anywhere and controlling me.but the dream i had last night started off as me wanting to be with him. We got back together and he abused me so i ran away. But i had this feeling like i wanted him to find me. I hate this guy, and i haven’t been with him for 3 years. Lastnight i had about 5 different dreams with him in it. What does this mean and will it stop?

        Your dream is a reflection of your experiences with your ex. His abusive actions were traumatic, and something in your life may have reminded you of his actions. This thought manifested and has passed, so allow the negative aspects of this dream to fade. Focus on your current life and strengthen your close relationships. Have a great day, Molly!

      I sometimes dream of different people at different times that I used to know 20 or more years ago. I was never close to these people. Just knew them from school, work, etc. Yet I am doing something or going places with them in my dreams. Any meaning to this?

        These dreams may be reflections of those relationships. Something in your life may have reminded you of someone from your past. Allow these dreams to guide you in a positive direction. Everyone in your life have led you to where you are now, so share your positive energy to honor their memories. Have a great day, Saul!

      I dreamt that my boyfriend and I were talking and he referred to me as his wife on another different dream he was introducing me to his mom. This stirred a lof of emotions in me. I mean is this just a normal dream or am I the one thinking of our life as a married couple. I’m a bit confused.

        Your dreams are reflections of your strong emotional connection with your partner. It may be a sign that you want to strengthen your relationship with your partner. Take this time to determine what you want for your future. Strengthen your relationship with your partner by spending additional time with him in person. Have a great day, Nic!

And the driver replied no … I looked worried but she was mean and laughed!!! Then the driver kept on driving and took me so far away from home …… this driver is the same mean driver from middle school! I told him to stop but he didn’t! That night … I don’t know for what reason I planned with my friends to go and watch the fireworks! And ..

        Your dream may have been a reflection of your emotional and social connection with your old flings ex girlfriend. The media that you consume may have caused this dream to manifest as well. Your relationship with your daughter’s father may have manifested, which may have caused a strong emotional feeling to accompany this dream. Focus your emotional energy on your family at this time, and attempt to reduce excess stresses in your life. Have a great day, Lowri!
