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 dreamt of my crush assuring me that we’ll never be together due to the age difference. We were in the same office in the dream and he kept looking at me as I looked back at him hurting from deep down inside.It pretty much seemed like he wanted to talk to me but kept distancing himself instead since he kept giving me attention.What does this dream mean?:(

      This dream is a reflection of your emotional connections with this person. You may feel as though the age difference is a problem. This dream does not mean that he has a problem with the age difference. Take this time to determine what you want for your future. Speak directly and honestly with him about your thoughts and feelings. Allow him to share himself with you as well. Have a great day, Tamar!

    I confessed to my crush and he said he likes me too and also said he’s not accepting nor rejecting (guys are confusing…). He gives me mixed signals and sometimes I just want to move on. I had this dream where I was actually at my old school and I was just strolling around when someone is suddenly in front of me. I remember the bright sun behind him and i adjusted my eyes to see him. He was rude, he was like “Hey, it’s the childish girl”. I got annoyed and tried to walk away when he pulled me and put his arm on my shoulder. He asked me why I changed. I just said ,”Do you really want the old me?!” and walked away from him. I quickly meet up my friends and told them about him. I saw a guy with a hand fan behind me (he uses a hand fan in real life) and I got mad because I thought he was eavesdropping (he did this to me in real life too). Turns out it wasnt him

      This dream is a reflection of the social influences that you have in your life. It sounds as though your crush is unwilling or unable to enter into a relationship at this time. He may be confused or uncertain about his feelings. Continue to treat him as a friend. Share kindness and compassion with everyone in your life. Have a great day, Girl!

      This dream is a reflection of your mother’s emotional attachment with you. This may mean that she is interested in having someone close in her life. It likely does not mean that your mother is interested in your crush. Take this time to determine what you want for your future. If you want to develop a relationship with him, then speak directly and honestly with him about your thoughts and feelings. Have a great day, Alfo!

    Hey, There’s a girl ! I had no feelings for her ! But suddenly she came in my dreams (20-25 times). It all started since this January 2017. She kept coming in my dreams. In dreams, First dream was she came to me in a beautiful white saree and told me that she was going for a party. I thought “strange dream”. No feelings for her till yet. Later, after some dreams, I dreamed that there’s a road where iron pillars have fallen down but the people are safe, they(people) were thinking how did that happen?! So, I was about to start investigation by questioning them. I realised that my cousin and the woman (crush) was standing there, just surfing the phone. Then, She told me that There’s a call for me (On her phone! Why ? I have my phone). Then, I took her phone ringing with me, suddenly it cut off. So, I went to back to return it to her. I returned her phone. Somehow, I was distracted and when i saw her, she’s in the middle of the traffic, walking, looking into her phone. Suddenly, a car came at high speed and hit her hard. She fall down. I was shocked by seeing that. Then, another one about to come to hit her. I don’t know, Something snapped inside of me, I didn’t care about the traffic, i didn’t care about the damn cars on the road. I shouted her name with all my might (generally, I don’t call her by name). I ran to her to save her in the middle of the road, i grabbed her, suddenly, that fast car, the people have vanished. I checked her, her ribs injured. Then , I decided to take her to hospital by myself. I told her this and was about hold her up in my arms. She asked me “why are you doing this?”. Then, something happened! I confessed to her ! I said to her ” I LOVE YOU”. She went numb and kept looking into my eyes and to me. Then, I hold her up in my arms, with her, i went to a vehicle. 3-4 people helped me. Then, on the way, the road was very rugged like it was a off-road something! I saw that our vehicle was going up on some stairs, then, suddenly, some people started throwing rocks from above. The vehicle imbalanced due to that ! I jumped with her. She was not alright , she was unconscious. We were safe but the vehicle was destroyed and it fell down! Then, I realised she was not with me ! Where the hell she has gone ?! I searched for her. I couldn’t find her. I went unconscious. The dream ended. It was a horrible dream but it has awoken my feelings for her. The later dreams were like going to market, or to jewellers or having fun. I saw her back naked. She was smiling and looking gorgeous in a dream. I also saw her pregnant in a dream. I also saw her kissing me in a dream. Latest dream: i saw her taking care of me! P.S. – They are not recurring dreams. They have awoken some feelings to her. Most dreams are morning dreams which tend to be true! ( personal experiences). Isn’t it strange that I can’t tell her about my feelings. It feels like she is connected to me. It makes me happy when i see a good dream about her. I pray for her to have a good and prosperous life. And please tell me about this?

    So there’s this guy, he was never my boyfriend but I guess we kind of dated. There’s a long story between us, good and bad things happened. I’ve been trying to get over him but every now and then my feelings for him come back dreaming of him doesn’t help. So here’s my dream: One day, there was an event the local grocery store for some reason. I see the guy in the crowed. I star blushing and nervous. I try to get as far away from him as possible so he don’t have to talk. Like we still talk in real life sometimes but it would just be awkward since we’re not dating anymore. As I walk away, the store starts turning into my house for some reason. Everyone starts to leave expect for him. He uses my house phone to call his mom to come pick him up. I turn on the tv and sit on my couch pretending not to notice him. Of course in real life I would go talk to him at the point but in the dream I didn’t. I feel someone sit next to me, it was obviously him. He laughs and says ” why didn’t you come say hi to me in the store?” I put a pillow on his lap and make myself comfortable. Looked surprised. “Didn’t see you.” I said smiling. “I saw you look at me and your face Turing red, I got all excited but then you walked way.” He said. ” i do not know what you’re talking about” I replied. “Ok.” He said in disbelief. Then somehow we got into a mini argument but we weren’t yelling or anything. I don’t remember what is was about.The finally he says, ” sorry I’m dumb. I believe it was me who was wrong in the argument so I say, ” no really I’m the dumb one” without expecting him to doubt me. Then he says ” but what did was-” I forgot what he said. But I start to feel over whelmed and start crying. Normally I don’t cry in front of him in real life. He stops talking and looks at me with disappointment. Then he starts running his fingers through my hair petting my head. I pretend to fall asleep so we don’t have to talk anymore. So he carries me to my bed, tucks me in, and just left my house. The thing is, this dream isn’t far fetched because things like this have happened in real life but not for a while. I wouldn’t be surprised if it ever happened again because we still talk and were still kind of touchy. But I just want to know what the dream means thanks.
