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!

      This dream is a reflection of your social and emotional desires. You likely are interested in maintaining a relationship with your crush, which explains his presence in your dream. Your action of hiding from him is a sign of your inaction. You are aware that if you do not reach out to him that it is possible that he will focus his energy elsewhere. 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, Gail!

      You do not have any problem. It is common to feel a strong emotional connection with a crush and sibling. This does not mean that you have something to worry about. Make a decision about what you want for your future. Speak with your crush about your thoughts and feelings. Give him an opportunity to share himself with you as well. Nourish this relationship by spending additional time together in person. Have a great day, Rose!

What does this mean because I’ve had dreams of her alot recently and she told me that she didn’t like me that way awhile ago. Whats does this all mean?

      This dream is an indication of the knowledge that your relationship has changed. It is clear that you feel a strong emotional connection with your crush. She has informed you that she doesn’t want to maintain a relationship with you, so make a decision about what you want for your future without her. You will find great benefit in sharing your kindness and compassion at all times. Have a great day, Brendan!

    I had this dream that I was in a restaurant with my friends and my crush came up to us with his friends and said hi to us. While my friends were talking to them, my crush and I were awkwardly staring at each other like be both knew what was up and whether we liked each other or not. It was a pretty short dream but I’m not exactly sure what this dream meant and I’m hoping that you could give a bit of an explanation for it.✨

      This dream is a reflection of your previous emotional connection with your crush. This connection was felt 6 years ago. You now have a partner. Allow thoughts of your previous crush to fade, and focus your emotional energy on your current partner. Nourish this relationship by spending additional time with him in person. Have a great day, Nice!

      This dream is a reflection of your social and emotional relationships. It is likely that you feel attracted to the person who chased you. You may be aware that your friend is also interested in you. Make a decision about what you want for your future. If there is one person that you want to maintain a relationship with, then speak with that person about your thoughts and feelings. Have a great day, Izzie!

      It is possible that he is interested in developing a relationship with you. It is certainly possible that he is uncertain or confused about your feelings for him. 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. Have a great day, Serine!

      Your friend Jaz seems to be interested in maintaining a romantic relationship with someone in her life. She should take this time to determine who she wants to maintain a relationship with. She should speak with that person about her thoughts and feelings. She will find great benefit in sharing her kindness and compassion at all times. Have a great day, Lucy!

    Hello, a couple of weeks ago I had a dream about this guy I really like but can’t be with because he’s a little too young for me + he has a girlfriend. In the dream we see each other in the street, he comes up to me & hugs me (I specifically remember his body feeling very firm) and I look down & notice he’s missing half of arm. Apparently a homeless man we both know cut it off? We then walk to his house, where I meet his mother (I’ve never met his but he has met mine irl) and i leave soon after. It wasn’t a long dream but I’m unsure what it could mean? Would love some advice, thank you.

      Your dream is a reflection of your social relationship with this person. The age difference is not a reason to not maintain a relationship with someone. However, you are aware that he is in a relationship. Focus your emotional energy elsewhere. It is perfectly acceptable for you to nourish this relationship by sharing your kindness and compassion at all times. Have a great day, Boo!

    I just dreamt this thing… After an zombie apocalypse thingy I had in my dream… My next scene was there was a near bathroom and I hid there because it’s like I don’t wanna get caught.. Then after some time on I can see an approaching 2 people (boy and girl) which I just know but not really close or something and they want to hide too so as long as they had seen my face they another boy had come on our place and when the two people came to accompany me there was a gray sports car when the boy was to come inside and I think we are hiding in the woods and even though I’m not talking I was just watching them on how they are going to hide so the two now really got in and they were by my side and there’s a washing machine outside the door that the third one matches his shirt on the color so he decided to hide there in case but when he was standing and holding the door to come in i stared at him and there I knew that he was my crush so when the time that I spoke out his name not that loud he was shocked and we hold each others hand indicating like we should trust each other cause I can see it in his face and after our hands got away to each other the gray sports car started to move and go back so he need to hide but he can’t so he stayed still and fortunately he is not seen then came the truck with lots of people when he attempts to go inside to hide but he was caught so he just stayed like a statue and his right hand started to hurt so he was whimpering and put his hand to beside his mouth and when the truck was going back and also there was a problem on handling the door cause like I was loosing energy to hold it so that we can’t be revealed.. The driver noticed him and said like are you watching something rated spg and he was like scolding him because on how he looks then when that happen I was really nervous especially that we are hiding then.. That’s how my dream stopped… I was just curious on how my 2 years crush(when I was in grade 8 and came back in grade 10)suddenly came into my dream and when I woke up I had this sensation that I’m still into him but I know that he wasn’t in real life but in the scene in the dream I somewhat seen our connection cause in real life I can always see him in the situations where I don’t want too and still I’m confused that’s why I wrote this down and the entire dream so that I can know the entire meaning… Please reply

      Your feel that this dream has a reflection to your real life. It is certainly possible that your crush from years ago has developed feelings for you. People’s feelings often grow and change over time. The zombie aspect of your dream is a reflection of various influences in your life. You will find great benefit in abstaining from consuming violent and dramatic media. Make a decision about what you want for your future, and take appropriate action. Have a great day, Ann!
