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!

    In my dream, I dreamt that I was in my school along with my friends preparing for a carnival. We were laughing and having fun until I turned to see at the rooftop where my crush was standing and he was smiling at me. However in real life he just knows I exist. We don’t have quite proper interactions. He is an introvert and mostly stays busy in his cell phone. Honestly, I want him to like me back but I only dream such stuff….What should I do?

    I dream about my crush. I think its already the time for his birthday when I dreamed of him. So in my dream, I saw him with his niece and sisters. I greeted him ‘happy birthday’ and the next thing I remember, we were very close (well, we’re friends in reality and quite close, you could say that) so close that I could even cling to his arms and he could be much closer to me that both our skin touched. Then I ask him if its okay for his girl (well, not his girlfriend but they just have a mutual understanding) for me to cling and be close to him like that, and he replied, “It’s fine. You’re the one I like.”
    ……..So, I’m thinking if what I thought is right, that I am hoping for it to happen in reality? was it? Actually, he’s kind of my ex?… we’ve love each other before yet we’re not together, okay, just a mutual understanding.. but then, months later, he told me, his feelings faded so we peacefully make our relationship as a friend, but I still like him. So what’s my dream about?

      Your dream is a reflection of your social and emotional relationship with your crush. The two of you seem to be friends, but you are aware that he has a partner. It seems that your relationship has a history, and you may be interested in addressing him in the future. For now, continue to share your kindness and compassion with him. If he feels that it would be appropriate for you to reach out you about nourishing a romantic relationship, then speak with him about your thoughts and feelings at that time. Have a great day, Charm!

        Oh, and what about my previous dream.. its him again. Well, in my dream, it says that I have a strict boyfriend and he invited me on a date with him. So while waiting for him at the restaurant, I begun eating snacks. And when I heared the door opens, I shot a look at it and saw him walking through my direction, but he’s with my boy bestfriend. I thought he was my boyfriend(because that’s how my dream starts) but as soon as I look in front, I saw my boy bestfriend infront of me eating beside my crush.

        Actually, this boy bestfriend I have is bisexual, but doesn’t have a feeling or anything to my crush. He’s always the one by my side, who advice me what I should do, who I talk to with these kind of stuffs. So I think there’s also a meaning of it. So what is it?

          And btw, on this dream, I saw my previous crush too. Hmm.. and other guys.. I forget about seeing any girl in this dream.
          ……

          Also, the next dream I have (next to this dream), I have dreamed about my previous crush (my first love, and I don’t love him anymore). So this is how, Well, I saw him walking,.. I bump into him and we greeted each other. On the other time (my dream keeps on jumping) when I bump into him again, he gave me a red rose, I accept it and I some of his friends (I think) came to us and tease us. Then I forgot next because I suddenly woked up.

          … So this is our background, we were school love team, well its what they called us. I don’t really like him at first, but he always blush whenever they’re teasing us and I don’t know why. But then, months passed, I begun liking him until I really fell in love with him. Almost all of my classmates told me he have feelings for me so I assumed too, but then there’s nothing happen for the both of us. So what’s this dream about?

            Like your other dreams, this dream is also a reflection of your social and emotional desires. It seems that you are interested in this person. People are teasing the two of you about your feelings for each other, which is likely an indication that he has feelings for you. You should take this time to determine what you want for your future. Additionally, speak with your friends for their advice as well. Have a great day, Charm!

          It seems that you are attempting to navigate your social and emotional relationships. Your best friend who advises you likely cares for you. You may want to address your questions with him. Speak with him about your thoughts and feelings. It is clear that your trust his advice, so give him an opportunity to help guide your actions. Regardless of your decision, you will find great benefit in sharing your kindness and compassion at all times. Have a great day, Charm!

            THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR ADVICE AND FOR ANSWERING MY QUESTIONS ABOUT MY DREAMS.

            …. but pardon me, I still have one dream that happen before the day I dream of having a kind of date with my crush (the first dream I commented)…

            So in this dream, We were all busy.. I might forgotten what happened but I would never forget that he tied my hair into ponytail. He takes care of me. And in my dream it tells me that he is like, he’s there for me always.

    In my dream i was at school sitting in the front line in front of the PE teacher, and at my right there was my friend talking to me, then i looked behind her and he was looking at me smiling, and it felt so good, and later at home i found that the iphone that i’ve got(i don’t have it in real life) in my dream was broken, because a big spider broke it and i killed the spider.
    I haven’t spoke to him for a long period of time, at school we don’t speak often and now we haven’t seen eacher the whole summer, soon school will begin and we will meet eachother, and we are friends and he knows i liked him, and he liked me too, and we’ve been a couple for 1 day, but i still like him but i don’t know if he does…

      Your dream is a manifestation of your feelings toward your crush, your thoughts about school, and your fear of spiders. It seems that you are aware of your thoughts toward your crush, so make a decision about what you feel is appropriate for the future of this relationship. Within your dream, you killed the spider. You will find great benefit in abstaining from harming other beings in the future. Have a great day, Danielle!

    In my dream I was hanging around with my friends standing in a circle then all of the sudden I get yanked out of the circle and it’s another one of my friends. When she yanks me out and starts speedily walking with me she tells me “they have to talk to you” so we keep walking and we eventually get my my crushes group of friends. My crush is the only one talking to me and is telling a story or gossiping. But I couldn’t really understand him.(I don’t know if I was zoning out in my own dream or not)

      The social circles in your dream may be indications of your friend groups. Your friend’s actions within the dream could be a sign of her desire to help you strengthen your relationship with your crush, who may be stuck within his own friend group. Speak with him about your thoughts and feelings, and give him an opportunity to share himself with you as well. Have a great day, Angelina!

          Your dream of his calling to you could be a sign of your desire to have a conversation with him about the future of your relationship. In your waking life, he calls you by your first and second name. This may be a sign that he is interested in you and wants you to know that you are in his thoughts. Make a decision about what you want for the future of this relationship. Speak with him about your thoughts and feelings, and give him an opportunity to share himself with you as well.

              His behaviors are indications that he is interested in you. It is possible that you have similar feelings for him as well. Make a decision about what you want for the future of this relationship. If he is attempting to stop his behaviors, then that may be an indication of his uncertainties.

      Your dreams are manifestations of your emotional relationship with your crush. His mother appeared in your dream, and it is possible that she is aware of your social relationship. It is certainly possible that your crush has similar feelings forward you as well. Make a decision about what you want for the future of this relationship. Speak with your crush about your thoughts and feelings, and give him an opportunity to share himself with you as well. Have a great day, Julie!

    I had a dream that my crush and I we’re doing a project in school. Let’s be clear here also that we don’t talk to each other and he has a girlfriend. I know it’s wrong but I can’t help it! But anyway we started to talk in the dream and became really good friends. Then we started to text in the dream. He started to ask me personal questions and I told him. Personal questions I don’t think I’ve ever told anyone. If we don’t talk in real life but in my dreams what does it mean?

      This dream is an indication of your thoughts regarding a relationship with this person. However, you are aware that he currently has a partner, so do not attempt to nourish a romantic relationship with him. Additionally, the two of you do not speak and are likely distant from each other. If his relationship ends, then speak with him about your thoughts and feelings at that time. For now, focus your emotional energy elsewhere. Have a great day, Zoey!
