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!

    Can I have more than one crush at the same time? Cuz I might like one of my guy friends. But I don’t know if it’s just cuz we’re close. My 1st crush and I aren’t going anywhere, which used to bother me. Cuz it was just dreams with him. But it doesn’t bother me anymore and I still dream about him tho. I don’t know I feel it’s cuz of my close friend or not

      Your emotions are your own. You can certainly have a crush on more than one person at the same time. You may be benefited by taking this time to determine which person that you want to develop a relationship with. At that time, attempt to spend additional time with that person. If the relationship does not work out, then you can decide to reach out to someone else. If it is a successful relationship, then nourish it. Have a great day, Nixe!

      Allow this crush to fade. It is unlikely that you will develop a relationship with this actor unless you meet him. Additionally, you are in a relationship with someone at this time. If your relationship ends because of reasons not pertaining to this actor, then you may decide to reach out to actor in the future. It would be most beneficial for you to focus on your current relationship. Have a great day, Confused!

      Your crush probably has an influence on your dream. It sounds as though you would like to develop a relationship with him. Speak directly and honestly with him about your thoughts and feelings. This will give him the opportunity to share himself with you as well. Be certain to spend additional time with him, as this will strengthen your mutual feelings. Have a great day, Roselyne!

      This dream is a reflection of your connection with this person. You have been doing the right this. As you are in a relationship, it wouldn’t be appropriate for you to develop a relationship with him. Allow this dream to fade, but allow the positive energy from this dream to influence your actions. Put the energy toward you current boyfriend. Have a great day, Anna!

      This dream is a reflection of your concerns and influences. If you have reason to believe that you can not trust this person, then avoid him. However, it is certainly possible that he was simply a placeholder for a random person in this dream. If there is no reason to not trust this person, then continue your current relationship as you please. Have a great day, Bontle!

    Hey admin, i wanna ask about my dream. I got a crush when I was in junior high school. I tried to be closer to him and he said he like me too. But it ended up that we didn’t have any relationship because I think we were too young. When i was in senior high school we went to same high school, he got a gf, i felt a little bit jealous but i still wanted to focus on my study so i didn’t think about it anymore. When i was in college, i even didn’t remember about him anymore. But after i finished my final paper and celebrated my birthday, i got a dream about him. what does it mean? help me please.

      If you want to develop a relationship with him, then reach out to him. You may also want to allow this dream to fade. The dream was a reflection of your previous emotional attachments to this person. Take this time to determine what you want for your future. If you decide that you want to develop a relationship with him and he is available, then speak directly and honestly with him about your thoughts and feelings. Have a great day, Ichigo!

    I just like this guy, he’s all perfect, really!He’s strong, From studies to GK and speaks well, he’s a perfect gentleman! Although he doesn’t have handsome features he managed to attract me, a lot. After a while, I felt like I have no chance with him so I decided to move on. When I went on a vacation, I heard from my friend that he asked about me and stuff, even when my classmates take a days off continuously he never asked for them.That reopened my love for him and I always looked for signs if he liked me even for a bit. Sometimes I feel like he’s out of my league…. But I can’t stop thinking about him that he started to appear in my dreams….Today I dreamt of him speaking to me with a wide smile and I felt like shit when I realized it was only a dream…I really want to move on…but my heart skips a beat everytime i see him…help me, pls…

      Do not concern yourself with concepts such as “league”. People of all types have successful relationships with each other. It is clear that he cares about you. If you want to develop a relationship with him, then reach out to him. Speak directly and honestly with him about your thoughts and feelings. This will give him the chance to share himself with you as well. Have a great day, Supernova!

          If she is your current teacher, then try to spend more time with her and speak with her about dancing. This will help to bring the two of you closer at this time. If she is not currently teaching you, then reach out to her. Speak directly and honestly with her about your thoughts and feelings. This will give her the chance to share herself with you as well. Take this relationship into your hands. Have a great day, Tiffany!

    I had a dream where I first had sex (I am a virgin in real life) with this popular guy who I don’t really know that well, but he is nice to me. Then, I got pregnant. It was close to the end of the school year (I am a freshman) and I told two of my close friends. I walk home with a different guy everyday. (Both of us like each other, and we went to hoco together as friends). I have never kissed him or anything, but we went into his house to study for our science final. We made out and he wanted to have sex, but I didn’t want to. I told him I was pregnant then got an abortion.

      Your dream seems to be a reflection of numerous influences that you have in your life. It would be wise for you to allow the negative emotions that are associated with your dream to fade away. Instead, allow this to influence you in a positive manner. Treat everyone in your life with kindness and compassion. Know that there is no reason for you to have sex with someone that you are not interested in having sex with. Have a great day, Lily!

    I had a dream about my crush and he kept getting close to me and saying soon…. it happened alot during my dream and the entire dream we were just having fun, going threw the woods together and laughing, hugging, holding hands and talking. The fact that everytime he got close to me and before kissing me he said soon is making me wonder what it means.

      Your dream may be a reflection of your desire to enter into a relationship with your crush or perhaps someone that you do not yet have feelings for. Take this time to determine what you want for your future. Your best option is to speak directly and honestly with your crush about your thoughts and feelings.

        Now I remembered the whole dream. I was walking to school and enter my class. I see everyone and of course, the teacher, which is weird. They doesn’t seems to notice me at all. So I walk out, only to be asked by a teacher with grey beard to pick up the rubbishes and throw them into the bin. Everyone goes to the cafeteria for the recess while I’m still doing that rubbishes picking job. I noticed that my crush was looking at me until his friends greet him and leave me. Later, we enter our class and everyone’s there. Everyone’s talking out loud, so do my crush. The teacher does not bother to yell at them. So I look at my crush smiling cutely. My crush took a glance of me and smile, and then turn to his friends. Suddenly, everyone looks in front, so I did the same. Then, someone hug me from back. Everyone doesn’t seems to notice us!

        I also had this second dream (It was yesterday 3rd of July, I’m in Malaysia timezone) where my crush make a heart on his chest to show at me. I was surprised and excited (Everyone noticed me and they were all are more lively), that’s the only part I remembered.

          Your dreams sounds like reflections of your desire to enter into a relationship with this person. The first dream may have been centered on your feelings toward him, which is why the other people in your dream were background. The second dream may have been a manifestation of your desire to have your relationship accepted, which may be why people noticed. Speak directly and honestly with him about your thoughts and feelings. Have a great day, Evelyn!

    I had a dream about my crush but here’s the thing i liked him since the third grade and i cant stop thinking about him i mean we have talked before but here’s the thing he was one of those cute super hot popular football playing white boys he was a gentleman though he always would wear these tan pants with Nike sweatshirts and Nike shoes. I can’t stop thinking about him or dreaming in my dream last night he was holding my hand while we were running and having fun but he could not stop looking at me when we were in a kind off sort of classroom.
    What does that mean? Does that mean he actually likes me i am worried he does not because of my brother he told on him because he was shooting Nerf bullets at him when he was playing with my brother so was his friend. Does he like me you think yes or no? My guy friend had been saying that he could be in my future that i do not know what the future holds and he is right i am not complaining. Just what do i do?

      You seem to have a wide array of dreams. There is something that you can do to reduce the negative emotions and increase the positive emotions that you experience in your dreams. Firstly, treat everyone that you meet with kindness and compassion. Secondly, reduce your consumption of violent media, such as television shows or music. With these two things, you can begin to focus on the living moment. Allow these dreams to fade, and send loving thoughts to your mother every day when you wake up. This will help you and your frequent dreams. Have a great day, Alfo!
