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:

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:

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

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.

    I dream every now and then about a guy who is so much older than me. We’re friends but about 2 years ago we shared a kiss or three. We have not seen one another since. Every so often he’ll message me and we’ll talk but then he goes ghost again. He was someone I confined in when I was leaving an abusive relationship; I cherish our friendship. I’m at a lost in my feelings and reality.

      It sounds as though this person and you had a strong emotional attachment in the past. It is possible that you are interested in nourishing your relationship. If you are interested in seeing what may come from your relationship, then reach out to him. Speak directly and honestly with him about your thoughts and feelings. Have a great day, Angel!

If you want to nourish a relationship with him, then reach out to him. If not, then allow this dream to fade. Have a great day, Marie!

    I’ve been having many dreams of the same man for a while now. I think about this person in every way most of the time. I haven’t seen this person for months now, but still think about him daily and dream of him. I recently had a disturbing dream of a man I’ve never met. I watched him struggle while interacting with other people. This person lived alone and was very alone. He seemed to have a lot of problems. I dreamt him walking to the store and bringing home something from the store. He then took a bath. Time passed and I followed him into the washroom to find his cold, dead body in his bathtub. He was cold and blue and his eyes were open. It had seemed that he overdosed on drugs. Then I dreamt his friends finding him shortly after.

      Relationships between friends often develop into lifelong relationships. Continue to treat him with kindness and compassion. You may choose to date people if you want to. However, you can also choose to attempt to spend more time with him. The two of you will become closer as you spend additional time together. Have a great day, Ayauna!

      This dream is not a problem. Dreams are common and sometimes people speak during their dreams. Allow thoughts of this other person to fade. Allow these dream to influence you in a positive direction. Share your kindness and compassion with your partner at this time. This will help your relationship and ensure that his feelings remain as strong as ever. Explain to him that these dreams are simply dreams and are not controlled by your thoughts. If he is mature, then he will understand this fact. Have a great day, Jessica!

    I often dream about a beautiful girl I went out with when I was 17. I’m 31 now and married with kids. Every time this girl visits my dreams I wake up so happy and think about her all day. We are still friends but haven’t seen each other for years because we live so far apart. Maybe I should send her a message today and see how she is…

      It would be best if you did not reach out to her at this time. You are in a relationship with children. Allow this dream to fade and allow the positive energy from this dream to influence your actions. Focus on your wife and children. Share your kindness and compassion with them. In time, these dreams will fade and your emotional connection with your family will become stronger. Have a great day, Dave!

    For some reason, I keep on seeing the same person in my dreams. Even though I don’t know who he is, he keeps on appearing. He’s a boy about my age (kind of cute)… and I have this strange feeling every time that he’s an other half of me. He usually acts kind and super sweet but he’s also very sarcastic and intelligent.

      It is great that you are having dreams about this unknown person. Perhaps you should allow this dream to influence your toward positive action. Treat everyone in your life with kindness and compassion. If this mystery person enters into your life, then they will know your positive reputation and actions. You may already know this person or they may be a complete stranger. Have a great day , Alex!

    My dream seemed to be quite interesting….. I had a dream that my mother and I were purchasing bottled water and a drink from a vendor….well before they would give us the drinks they would taste them. I told the vendors how unsanitary it was and I decided to report them well we all went together and as we were passing the lines a guy I used to date was the guard to the other side of the window.i felt relieved when I saw him because I knew he would let me in. Indeed he did!!!! Then the dream jumps to him comforting me and hugging me. In my dreams I had never felt so safe in his arms. And he told me he missed the hugs and this was where he was supposed to be. I told him I was seeing someone else and he said let’s not make the biggest mistake of our lives.

      Your dream is a reflection of your emotional connect with this person. If you are currently in a relationship, then allow thoughts of your ex to fade. Put the positive energy from your dream into your current relationship. If this relationship ends for a different reason and you are still interested in this other person, then reach to the person in your dreams. Focus on what you have at this time. Have a great day, Dreams!
