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 dreamed about my crush, i dreamed that we were in school and that my friend said really loud say that you want to be at the side of *my crushes name* and alot of girls heard and i was yelling at my friend for exposing me infront of everyone, i also said ”i can’t” he’s such a fuckboy hes not good for me” ”he’s not a good guy” and then these girls told him what i said and he got mad at me and said ”why are you calling me a fuckboy” i started laughing then crying which is weird because i never cry infront of people, then i went to go beside him *keep in mind we had a class this whole time so everyone saw what was happening* we started arguing there and then we decided to talk in a private place. We went to the park and everything finally felt so peaceful, i knew he had had feelings for me, and we just sat with eachother and i told him everything i felt and we just talked and talked? What does this mean

      Your dream is a reflection of your social and emotional desires. It seems as though you are uncertain about what you want for the future of this relationship. You may have uncertain feelings about him. Make a decision about what you want, and speak with your crush about your thoughts and feelings. Give him an opportunity to share himself with you as well. Have a great day, Bebe!

      Dreams about people that you do not know may be manifestations of your social and emotional desires. This person may be from your past. He may appear in your future. It is possible that he is an amalgamation of various qualities that you find attractive in a partner. Allow this dream to guide you to share your kindness and compassion at all times, as this will draw positive people and energy toward you. Have a great day, Arabella!

    I dreamt the other night that I was at the waterpark with my crush and we were floating around and having fun until it switches to where I see my crush about to kiss one of my friends and I stopped that by pulling my crush away? What could that possibly mean? Also if I have another dream about my crush that I’m confused about can I comment again and ask for another opinion on what confused me? Thanks!

      Your dream is a reflection of your social and emotional desires. It is possible that the interaction between your crush and your friend is a reflection of your jealousy or an acknowledgment of your knowledge that other people have romantic relationships with each other. Make a decision about what you want for your future. If there is someone in your life that you want to maintain a romantic relationship with, then speak with that person about your thoughts and feelings. Have a great day, Alexis!

      Dreams about death are often indications of your knowledge of change in a relationship. It seems that you are interested in developing a relationship with him, so 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. Nourish this relationship by spending additional time with him in person.

      When you are around someone a lot or you think about them a lot, it only makes sense that you would dream about them more often. Most likely, it is the intensity and the frequency of your feelings that have brought up the image of your crush within your dreams. Unfortunately, there is no way to know from your dream if your crush likes you back or not–you can always hope though! Thanks for commenting and good luck, Hi!

    Hey, so there was this guy a grade above me who I had a crush on. I’d never spoken to him, nothing like that. But he and I always made long eye contact. He’s been in my dreams constantly for months now, one dream in particular where we got married. What does this mean?
    Thanks so much for reading!

      Your dream is a reflection of your social relationship with this person. Since your family is moving back to where he lives. 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. Have a great day, Ann!

          Your dreams are reflection of your feelings of attraction toward your crush. However, you are aware that he is in a relationship. No not attempt to maintain a romantic relationship with him at this time. Allow thoughts of him to fade, and focus your emotional energy elsewhere. If his relationship naturally ends and he reaches out to you in the future, then speak with him about your thoughts and feelings at that time. Have a great day, Water!
