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?

    I had a dream of my crush kissing me on the cheek and telling me he loves me but I don’t know what it means. We are a little more than friends but I know he is still mostly hung up on his ex. I am very confused as to what this dream means

      This dream is a reflection of your social and emotional relationship with your crush. He is thinking about his ex, but he is single. Make a decision about what you feel is appropriate for the future of this relationship. Speak with him about your thoughts and feelings, and give him an opportunity to share himself with you as well. Have a great day, Ari!

    Last week I had a dream that a friend of mine asked me to marry him. (I have no attraction toward him, and we’re not even very good friends anymore.) But in my dream I agreed to marry him, and he put a ring on my finger. Then he left to tell his friends, and I suddenly regretted it and broke down crying. My best guyfriend came and wrapped his arms around me, and told me it would be okay, and said he’d go take the ring back for me. I tried and tried to get the ring off my finger, but it was stuck, and I hugged him tighter. Then I woke up, still crying.

    Any idea what it meant?

      This dream seems to be a reflection of your thoughts in regards to relationships and commitments. It seems that you feel a strong connection with your bestfriend. He likely cares for you and wants you to feel comfortable. It is possible that you are navigating an emotional relationship at this time, and you feel that your real emotional focus should be on your bestfriend. Make a decision about what you want for your future, and take whatever action that you feel is appropriate. Have a great day, Amy!

    Last night i dreamed about my ex – he was sitting at a table, with three girls. I walked towards him, and asked him to join me at the other end of the table. He followed me, and I gave him a tender kiss on the forehead, and embraced him – I wanted to signal the other girls that he is mine. We stayed in an embrace for a while until I got called away. By the time I returned to the table, he and the three girls had gone. (my ex broke up with me, abruptly, two years ago to live with another woman)

      This dream is a reflection of your previous emotional relationship with your crush. The two of you have not been together for years, and you are aware that he is maintaining a relationship with someone else. Allow thoughts of him to fade, and determine what you want for your future without him. You will draw positive people and energy into your life by sharing your kindness and compassion at all times.

    dear, last night i dreamed about my ex. I saw him at a table, with three girls. I walked towards the table, asked him to move a bit closer to me (on the other end of the table), gave him a gentle kiss on the forehead, and wrapped my arms around him – as a sign to the three girls that he is mine. We stayed for a while in a tender embrace, until someone called me. I walked away from the table. By the time I returned, all four (my ex and the 3 girls) had left the table … (fyi: my ex broke up with me abruptly two years ago – for another woman).

    I have been in love with this guy for 14 years. We didn’t connected for 11 years, and a month and half back I told him I love him on Instagram. He respected my feelings but he has someone in his life or this is what he said. But after a few days I dreamt of him and a stranger girl in a room arguing as if they were breaking up, then I called him accidentally and I was shocked to see that it’s him. He seemed shocked but I saw hurt in his eyes as if he was in pain from the argument he was having with this girl before. I apologized and hung up. In next dream, I saw us preparing for some school function together and we seem to like each other’s company quite well. In the third dream, I saw us having a kind of argument with our respective families but then my heart ached when his family scolded him. The fourth dream was him texting me which he hasn’t done since the confession night. My instincts say all the time there is no one in his life and he simply said all of it because he was shocked with my confession. But these dreams are quite unusual for me. They came in gaps but still it’s all about him.

Make a decision about what you want for your future, and speak with him about your thoughts and feelings.

    I dreamt of this guy, we met at an event. A host come near me and flashed a 2 heart card and told me that someone wants to meet me. Then he escorted me to a new table and there I saw a guy patiently waiting for me. He smiled as I reached our table. Then it seems like my dream had a fastforward, I was still with the same guy I met at an event but we were hugging each other and we looked so happy together. My dream ended when he asked me about something while I was busy doing my school works.

    I’d dream this particular guy for like 3 times already. He was actually my “almost” he already got a girlfriend by now. They’re happy. But in my dream we are like together? The way he holds and entertwined are fingers felt so real. Like really. But then theres this point in my dream where he is talking someone over the phone and whisper some “goodluck” and then one of my friend and his friend was there and like teasing me that I’m jealous but answered them with a smug “no” and I forgot what happened next but before I woke up i remember that I was crying in my dream because I kinda felt that he is still not over with her ex but I pretended to be okay like Im not hurting but and the end I kind of invite him for a day so we could talk and we spent a day well we were happy before I bid my goodbye to him for real. I actually kiss him before whispering “iloveyou. Iloveyou, so I’m setting you free.”
    And thats it i woke up having tears in my face.

    And now Im wondering whats that dream all about? Whats the meaning or what was it implying?

    I mean yes i like him but i know for real that his with somebodyelse already and that their happy.

    Is that mean something?

    Married for few years. But I still see this person in my dream. Most of the time I usually chase him in my dream and when I was trying to talk he disappears. Last night , I dreamt of him again and in my dream I saw him well groomed and we were about to marry but suddenly got awake. Every time I dream of him , me and my husband will end up in an argument although I never share my dream with him .

When you wake up from these dreams, you may behave in a certain manner or your partner’s behaviors may influence you to react in a certain way.

      This dream is a relationship of your concerns regarding infidelity. It is possible that this dream is a manifestation of the shows that you watch. Abstain from consuming dramatic media. If your partner is behaving inappropriately, then speak with him about your thoughts and feelings. If his actions are acceptable, then nourish your relationship by spending additional time with him in person. Have a great day, Cynthia!

      The dream shows a desire to love someone and to find someone who loves and protects you. The fact that your family was there in the dream seems to indicate that you want them involved in your real life relationships and you want to find someone they approve of. Once you find someone like this in your waking life, your dream guy will most likely be replaced by your real life relationship.

The dream was like i was wroking at a hospital(I’m a doc) and he was with amnesia, retro grade one where he is forgot me. That dream reminded me of good quality he had. I never had talked to this guy like real for abt 3yrs. Nor do I miss him. Only thing i felt guilty about was the intentionally tried to hurt him once. Whole day i had guilt consciousness

      The dream seems to represent how your subconscious feels about him now. He is no longer a part of your life, and your subconscious mind feels as if have forgotten him. It may also be due to a worry that he has forgotten about you in return. Either way, the dream does not mean anything significant about your feelings for him and it does not show what you should do in the future–it merely shows what is going on within your subconscious mind.
