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 had a dream that I was talking to my crush and then I got mad and blew up about how since he is not giving me the time of day when he has no one to talk to, I won’t be there. The thing is that I haven’t seen him since December and I haven’t been thinking about him since.

      Your dream is a reflection of your social and emotional desires. It is possible that you are concerned that the two of you are not nourishing this relationship as you would like. Determine what you want for your future. Speak with him about your thoughts and feelings. Give him an opportunity to share himself with you as well. Nourish this relationship by spending additional time with him in person. Have a great day, Carson!

      Your dream is a reflection of your concerns and worried regarding your relationship with this person. However, your dreams are not an accurate reflection of his feelings for you. Since he is currently in a romantic relationship, do not nourish your relationship in an inappropriate way. It is always beneficial to share your kindness and compassion with everyone in your life. If his relationship naturally ends, then speak with him about your thoughts and feelings at that time. Have a great day, Emily!

      Your crush may be interested in nourishing a relationship with you. However, he is currently in a relationship. Do not attempt to nourish a romantic relationship with you at this time. If his relationship naturally ends, then speak with him about your thoughts and feelings at that time. For now, simply share your kindness and compassion with everyone in your life. Have a great day, Anon!

      Your dream is a reflection of your social and emotional influences and concerns. Your crush currently is in a relationship, so focus your emotional energy elsewhere. You are aware that your friend is annoying and may have social troubles due to their behavior. Ensure that this dream guides you to support your friend as you are able to do so. Share your kindness and compassion at all times, as this will draw positive people and energy into your life. Have a great day, Anon!

    I had a dream that my crush didn’t want to be friends and left me but I was okay with it. But in real life if that happened I would cry.

      Your dream may be a reflection of your knowledge that the two of you are not currently in a romantic relationship. It seems as though you want to strengthen your relationship. Determine what you want for your future. Speak with him about your thoughts and feelings. Give him an opportunity to share himself with you as well. Have a great day, Anon!
