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!

      Your dreams are reflections of your social and emotional desires. However, you are currently married. It is acceptable for you to continue to nourish your relationship with your friend by sharing your kindness and compassion with him. Focus your emotional energy on your husband, and nourish this relationship by spending additional time with him in person. Have a great day, Penny!

      Your dreams are reflections of your emotional desires in relation to your crush. You are aware that he is married. Do not attempt to nourish a romantic relationship with him. It is perfectly acceptable for you to continue to share your kindness and compassion with him. If his relationship naturally ends and he reaches out to you, then speak with him about your thoughts and feelings at that time. Have a great day, RRR!

    I had a dream about my crush which was the video playing as if he was dead and the dream stopped when the funeral was completed. In between the whole video streaming, I saw both of our friends, classmates, his family, my family and i saw myself sitting beside his body and crying a lot. What does this dream mean?

      Your dream may be a reflection of various influences in your life. Death is often a manifestation of a change in a relationship. The presence of your family and friends could be an indication that you are aware of the strength of the numerous social and emotional relationships that you have in your life. Ensure that this dream guides you to share your kindness and compassion at all times. If you want to nourish a relationship with your crush, then speak with him about your thoughts and feelings. Have a great day, AMS!

    Hi, I had a dream about my crush kissing me. We were sitting together and he said he wanted to say something and told me to lean in but he was getting closer and closer and finally kissed me. In real life, I confessed to him but he neither accept or reject and he’s also moving away too

      Your dream is a reflection of your social and emotional connection with your crush. In your real life, you spoke with him about your thoughts and feelings. When you spoke with him, he didn’t tell you his feelings for you. This likely is because he knows that he is going to move and that this relationship may not be viable. While he is still here, you may nourish your relationship by spending additional time with him until he leaves. Have a great day, Anon!

    So, I had this dream that we were at my house, laying in the grass and coming up with ideas for something. Afterwards, he kissed me on the cheek multiple times and then we departed. My crush is my friend, but I rarely see him. What does this mean?

    Hi, um, I had a dream of this person that I think I like but I’m not sure? The dream started off as me playing with my friends with this weird dream. Then, they all sort off went blurry and I was now laying beside my “crush”. He lifted his arm but had difficulty of putting it around me, so I helped him. In the background I could hear my friends cooing at me, but even though I was embarrassed the dream just went on with me and him cuddling on the floor……..
    What might this mean?

          Hello, I had a dream where me and my crush were sitting together on the couch and watching a movie and it was like we both wanted something to happen but nothing did. ( like wanted to hold hands and cuddle ). Later we ended up out the front of my house from being dropped off ( I don’t think it was related to the first part ) and he picked me up so I had my legs around his waist and arms around his neck, he somehow got really tall while I was on him. And again there was sexual tension, we both wanted to kiss each other and went in for it but didn’t and just had an inmate moment of being close….. what could it mean?

    I had a dream last night about my crush, we never talk, we had our conversation when we first met and when he will tune my instument once. But whenever we are near each other, I feel that awkwardness and we glancess at each other every time that we are seeing each other. And go back to my dream, in my dream he always help me and guidance me whenever I’m in my hardships and even when I don’t know where I’m going he always lead the way and make sure that I’m safe.
