    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:

    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.

      To start off, I already have a boyfriend. I have also been working with a male co-worker for a few months. He’s also my supervisor. We share an office together and do the same work. These past few months I’ve been having dreams about my co-worker. These dreams occur about 1-2 times a week. I’ve started making a dream log about 2 months ago. I do forget some of my dreams but I’ve recorded most of them. I will list all the dreams I’ve had about my co-worker for the past 2 months:

      1. Co-worker played a role being part of an attractive family trying to pull a scandal on me and my family’s (non-existent) successful business and he had hide the fact,for his own family, that they were conducting human experiments behind our backs. Anyways, I’ve found files that he has secretly stored about human experiment. This is pretty relevant because we both do paperwork for our real life jobs. I exposed them to my mother who was a co-leader of the company. She was in shock and fired my co-worker’s entire family. My co-worker understood her actions and left for the airport to go fly back to his “home town”. And then missiles were launched there the next day and all I could do was hope he didn’t make it back there in time for that.

      2. My co-worker had a huge cup of coffee on his desk and I offered to buy him coffee and he accepted that offer. (Background, he sometimes goes buys his co-workers coffee)

      3. Other co-workers were aware that me and the co-worker I’m writing about were having some kind of affair. (That is not happening in real life!) The most intimate thing that happened was that I was giving him a hug. He also said that he was going miss me and he called me by name. I remembered feeling touched about that in the dream.

      4. Co-worker said he loved me and I was okay with that. I don’t remember in what context, what I wrote down wasn’t detailed.

      5. We were in a car and he put his hand on top of mine in a platonic, caring way.

      6 (today). Co-worker and I encounter someone on the brink of death. That someone stopped moving and we walked closer towards him. Then he jumped at us. And the stopped moving again. That must have shocked me so much because I had my arm around co-worker while he didn’t flinch. Just had worry and concern about the person. Then he went on to calmly explain what’s happening and tried to make the situation lighter by telling jokes. (His actions are very similar to real life. He explains a lot of things to me and he likes to joke time to time)

      I do not have any romantic or sexual feelings towards my co-worker. I think highly of him and respect him. I see him everyday since we work in I’m j

        Sorry my phone lagged and I accidently submitted before finishing. I was wondering based out of all that what it means if I dream about some that much with dreams like those. I’ve only known my co-worker for a little over 3 months.

          Your dreams about your coworker are frequent. The dream about the affair is a reflection of your thoughts and feelings. The hand holding in your dream is a reflection of your emotional connection with him. If you find that you have developed feelings for him, then determine what you want for future. Do not develop a relationship with him, as you currently have a partner. Speak with your partner about your thoughts and feelings. Take appropriate action. Have a great day, Jojo!

        This dream is a reflection of her social connection with you and this other person. She may feel as though she admires this guy. Her media influences may have caused this dream to manifest as well. The dream is a sign that she feels comfortable and secure with you. Spend additional time with her in person as this will strengthen your relationship. Have a great day, Naylah!

      I dreamed about this girl (which I know and talk to a little bit in the morning on my bus). I have never thought about this girl or had any attraction to her but in the dream we were both lying on the floor hugging each other.( I can’t remember why or how we got into that position.) Then she fell asleep hugging me and I fell asleep as well. When we woke up I kissed her forehead and walked away. After that my alarm went off and I woke up. What does this mean? (Keep in note I had no original attraction to her)
