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!

    Hey!
    I had this dream one time how I was running away from this building. I ran into the woods and stood there looking around. Then, out of no where, a pack of wolves started to chase me. I started to run. I heard some voices calling my name. I looked and saw that my crush was running towards me. I turned to the left and kept on running. Somehow, I tripped and fell. My crush knelt down by me and brushed my hair out of my face and was about to kiss me when i started to cry for some reason. He then just patted my head and called other people I knew and said that I was by him. Then my dream ended

      Dreams of being chased are indications of concerns or worries that you may have in your life. The presence of your crush is a reflection of your emotional relationship with him. It is possible that you are interested in maintaining a relationship with someone who makes you feel safe and secure. 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, Katie!

    This sounds weird but I have a crush on an anime character. It is normal for an anime watcher like me though, a few dreams about him were intimate, some were affectionate and some just a normal relationship. I dreamt once he passionately kissed me! but I like him. And its annoying knowing there is a slim chance of someone like him popping up in life.

      It is not uncommon for people to develop attractions to actors and actresses in shows that they watch. Some people develop feelings for anime characters. It is likely that his attributes are reflections of what you find attractive in a partner. Ensure that this dream guides you to share your kindness and compassion at all times, as this will draw positive people and energy into your life. Have a great day, Ella!

      Your dream is a reflection of your social and emotional desires. The stranger and your crush are both similar in that you never met them before. Ensure that this dream guides you to make a decision about what you want for your future. If you are in contact with your crush, then speak with him about your thoughts and feelings. Have a great day, Nimra!

      Your dream may be a reflection of your emotional relationship with your best friend. The two of you share a long history, so it is possible that you are aware of your mutual growing feelings for each other. Going into the woods together may be a sign of your thoughts of starting a new life together. Make a decision about what you want for the future of this relationship, and speak with her about your thoughts and feelings. Have a great day, Genesis!

      This dream may be a reflection of your relationship with your crush. It is possible that he has similar feelings for you as well. It is possible that you want to develop a relationship with him, but you may not want to maintain a close physical relationship. 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.

      This dream is a reflection of your social and emotional relationship with your crush. The number 36 could be a sign of a desire to look inward. Introspection will bring you many benefits. Share your kindness and compassion at all times, as this will draw positive people and energy into your life. Speak with your crush about your thoughts and feelings. Have a great day, Anon!

      Your dream is a reflection of your social relationships and academic concerns. It is possible that you are interested in focusing more on your education, though you are also concerned about your social relationships. If you are interested in maintaining a romantic relationship with your crush, then speak with him about your thoughts and feelings. Nourish this relationship by spending additional time with him in person. Have a great day, Desperate!

    I had a dream recently where I said to my mom that I should see my crush. She said ok maybe, and then I went into my room and he was there. Then we started hugging, and we hugged for a very long time. He told me I was going to be ok, and I told him I loved him. What does this mean?

      The first dream is a reflection of your social and emotional desires. If you are interested in maintaining a relationship with your crush, then speak with your crush about your thoughts and feelings. The second dream may be an indication of your knowledge of negative influences. You will find great benefit in abstaining from consuming violent and dramatic media. You will find great benefit in sharing your kindness and compassion at all times. Have a great day, Anon!

      This dream is a reflection of various influences in your life. It is possible that your social relationships have appeared in this dream. The flood could be a manifestation of a concern or worry in your life. The shootout is an indication of your knowledge of recent shootings and other violent events. Abstain from consuming violent and dramatic media, and share your kindness and compassion with everyone in your life. Have a great day, Roger!
