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 had a dream me and my crush were sitting side by side on the floor and she asked me something about who I think is the prettiest between our teammates and after I replied saying she was I told her “what are we both doing we obviously like each other” to which she replied to by saying “obviously?” And by holding my hand and kissing me on the cheek, then it ended up with us kissing.

      The dream shows your desire to be close to your crush and to have her respond positively to you. Unfortunately, there is no way of knowing from just a dream if a crush likes you back or not, although it is entirely possible. If you want to find out if she is actually interested in you or not, try making a move and see how she responds.

      The dream shows that you want to receive some kind of message or sign from your crush. Considering who he is, I imagine the sign you want to see is whether he likes you or not. Your dream can only represent what is going on in your subconscious mind, so there’s no way to know if he is interested or not unless you make a move in real life! Good luck!

          It means you wish your crush would respond like this in your waking life. Your subconscious mind can only show your own thoughts, feelings and desires, so there is no way for a dream to show how someone else feels unless you actually know how they feel.

    I had a dream that my crush was behind me and he put his arms around my shoulders and then he kissed me on the cheek. Then, while he was walking away, he said “We can’t be together until we stop caring” but I don’t know if it means anything.

      This dream is a sign that you are interested in maintaining a relationship with your crush. The statement could be a sign that there is an emotional relationship that you are thinking about, and it is possible that he is managing a similar concern in his life.

    Last night I had a pretty weird dream, so this morning in my dream it was 5:59 and I didn’t know the time and there was nothing in the dream to show the time I was just in a big room with big white walls surrounding me. Then since my mom wakes me up at 6 for school before she came in the room in big black bold letters on the wall in front kf me it said “Your Crush Likes You!” then I woke up cause my mom woke me up by then and it was still 6 when she did wake me up. This dream probably means nothing tho since it was pretty random.😂

      The dream most likely occurred because you wish your crush would like you, so you dreamed that it happened. If you want to find out how your crush feels in your waking life, make a move and see what happens! Good luck!

        The dream shows what you wish would happen. Since he responded romantically in the dream, it shows your subconscious mind is hopeful that he could like you back in real life if he really gave you a chance. Unfortunately, there is no way to know how he actually feels in real life or not, but you can always try making a move to find out!

      Unless you know how someone feels, it is impossible for your subconscious mind to know how they feel. Instead, it just shows the thoughts, feelings and desires that are going on within your own subconscious mind.

    I recently had a dream that my crush happened to be in, and it was strange, because all I did was turn around and we had this weird handshake and he wouldn’t let my hand go. It was pretty funny.

      The dream probably represents your subconscious thoughts and feelings. You want him to make a move and be so interested in you that he can’t let you go, so you dreamed that this happened as well.
