What Does It Mean When You Dream About Your Crush?

By on December 29, 2013

On average every one of us dreams seven times per night. We might not even realise it, but that doesn’t make it any less true. All too often people don’t realise this and claim to never dream, not realising how statistically unlikely that actually is. Since you’re reading this, I think it’s safe to say however that you’re not one of those people. I’m going to take a shot and say that you remember your dreams quite a lot, perhaps most nights, and I’m going to take another shot and say that a lot of them feature a certain, very special, someone.

But what does it mean when your crush keeps popping up in your dreams? Why is it that he just can’t contain himself to real life, why is he flaunting himself in your dreams too? Here’s your answer…

The Why

‘The why’ in ‘why is your crush dream stalking you?’ is simple – you’re thinking about him in your waking hours and unable to forget about him when you switch off for the night. When we sleep our subconscious gets free reign and in that time it paints us pictures using the people, objects, places and scenarios we’ve been thinking of when we were awake.

There’s not much else to the why, like I said, it’s simple. You’re focussing on him while you’re awake and your subconscious is simply playing on that fact and creating a dream from it.

What It Means

Depending on your beliefs and whether or not you’re superstitious, dreams can either mean nothing or they can mean everything. They can hide clues to the future or your deepest desires or they can simply be nothing more than your mind playing a trick on you. If you don’t believe dreams hold clues to our futures or insights into our souls then I suggest you skip over this section, it may not be for you.

Here’s a few common dreams that may include your crush and what they are commonly interpreted to mean…

To dream you are kissing your crush symbolizes love, affectation and harmony. Your mind is expressing your waking desire to be close to this person and form some sort of attachment, in this case a relationship.

Don’t panic if you and your crush were arguing in a dream. This doesn’t mean you aren’t compatible as a couple. Arguing in a dream can symbolize tension and that you are trying to resolve an internal conflict. In this case, it’s likely your mind trying to tell you how frustrated it is that your crush is nothing more than a crush. It could show that your mind is ready for the two of you to become more than friends.

If you receive a love note or letter in your dream means that there could be a new relationship ahead of you. It also however symbolizes that you are insecure about something and need reassurance about your feelings or relationship. My advice in this situation is to be hopeful but beware, don’t let your insecurities get the better of you.

What To Do About It

On a whole, dreaming of your crush shows that you have an unresolved issue with him in real life, namely that he’s only your crush and not your boyfriend. You need to take action in the real world by attempting to get closer to him to see if a relationship is on the cards or not. Either way, your dreams about him are likely to grow fewer, if not stop altogether, as you start to live out your fantasy of speaking to him in everyday life. Chances are, you’ll be happier for it too. Instead of waking up feeling slightly hollow every morning seeing as your dream was only a dream, you’ll end each day feeling fulfilled that you spoke to him.

Try reading my article How To Get Your Crush To Like You for tips on how to interact with your crush in real life. As much as we’d all like to, we can’t go on dreaming forever. It’s time to stop dreaming and start living so go out there and make your crush fall head over heels for you!

    I am not sure if it posted because i can’t see it. Last night I had a dream. A dream that kinda had me thinking throughout the day and having somewhat of a crisis about it. Also wanted my head to explode because I had like no clue of what to do. Always my dream started off with Landon, I and a few other friends from trinity were at school ( a different and more modern campus of trinity a school both he and i went to) were in our own separate groups for a little. Some of the girls and I went to go see this one certain girl (she was blonde) in an office, turned out she planed something to get back at the school by the track/football field. The girls and I ran to go see the field of where the boys and Landon was, I knew something was going to happen and soon. When we got close to the fence on the hill we saw it all happen. An explosion hit between the school building and field where the boys were running. I ran around the fence to help some of them up to the hill but only Landon and another boy named Cai M saw me. Once I helped Landon up I looked behind him and just saw bodies laying on the grass injured or possibly dead. I was confused, scared and sad all at the same time, I asked him how many people could be injured or worse and Landon said it hit everyone really hard. After I helped Landon up we went to his father and told us that Landon should stick with me for a while until its safe. So my parents, Landon and I went to Costco to get some things. At the warehouse, Landon told me “Let’s be together, let’s try it and see how it goes.” I was happy, I had the man that I been wanting to have for years to be with me and possibly fall in love with. Every time we touched, hugged or talked I was happy and had the biggest smile I could have. I just wanted to have him hold me and I wanted to do the same but never let go of him. We were happy, I was happy. And that’s where it had to end. I woke up today confused, confused on what I should do or how to act but I was definitely not confused with my feelings. I was been thinking to reach out to him and send a letter to get in touch and hopefully see him again. My feelings though want him, I need him in my life, I miss him a lot. Its been 3 years almost 4 since I last saw him and it’s killing me inside. Every now and then I go through a phase of thinking about Landon for a long period of time but this one is different. Deferent in way that I do need to see and want to be with him for sure. But we also have been going to school together since kindergarten and just in 5th grade is when it all started.

      This dream is a reflection of your social and emotional relationship with your crush. The explosion in your dream may be an indication of recent shootings and other violent events. You have not seen him in years, so make a decision about what you feel is viable regarding your relationship. If you are able to contact him, then share your thoughts and feelings with him. If not, then focus your emotional energy elsewhere. Regardless, you will find great benefit in sharing your kindness and compassion with everyone in your life. Have a great day, Kira!

      Your dream is a manifestation of your thoughts regarding this relationship. It is possible that her leaving within the dream indicates a change in your waking life. Determine if you believe whether or not this relationship is viable. Make a decision about what you want for the future of this relationship. Speak with your crush about your thoughts and feelings, and give her an opportunity to share herself with you as well. Have a great day, Joshua!

    What is I’m dreaming every night about my crush but he’s barely in the background, I see him in the corner of my eye and then when I look at him he seems so casual, relaxed and he doesn’t see me?

    And then also, this started a while ago, dreams of my crush trying to kill me? Just tonight it was so intense, he had a gun to my head and was yelling at me, but I wasn’t scared at all actually, at a certain point he clicked the gun and asked if I had any last words, I said “I forgive you” and then I woke up.

    Can that also mean something?

      Your first dreams were reflections of your emotional relationship and desires regarding your crush. The shooting aspect of this dream is an indication of concerns and worries that you may have in your life. You are aware of recent shootings and other violent events. Abstain from consuming violent and dramatic media, as this will draw positive people and energy toward you. Make a decision about what you want for the future of this relationship and take appropriate action. Have a great day, Tunafish!
