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 that my crush is looking straight and smiling to me at the flag pole because we’re raising our flag that time. But in real life, he doesn’t look at me that straight and ignoring me all the time. What does that mean?

      Your dream is a reflection of various influences in your life. The flag aspect of your dream could be a reflection of your thoughts related to your country or education. It is possible that you are interested in developing a relationship with him. Make a decision about what you want for the future of this relationship. Speak with him about your thoughts and feelings. Have a great day, Marley!

    Last night I dreamt that I went to eat with my colleagues, I don’t know if it was a farewell or something. But then I went to walk and saw a guy play the piano, I sat near him and started playing together. I rested my head on his shoulder, and his on mine. Then we got interrupted by some people but then they went away. After they went he kissed me. I was so happy we took photos and walked together. I don’t know what this means. I’m confused in real life if I like him or not.

        He does not work with me, I just saw him there. The fact that scares me the most is that he is 16 and I’m going to be 19 in October.

            Because of your age difference, there may be legal or social reasons for why you should not nourish a romantic relationship with him at this time. Nourish your friendship by sharing your kindness and compassion at all times. Speak with him about your thoughts and feelings, and give him an opportunity to share himself with you as well.

Since the two of you do not talk, you should make a decision about what course of action is appropriate. Either nourish this relationship by spending additional time with him, or speak with him about your thoughts and feelings. Have a great day, Naralie!

      Your dream is a reflection of your social and emotional desires. If your crush does not currently talk to you, then determine what that is the case. If the two of you are not friends, then determine what is viable. If he is upset at you, then speak with him about what you can do to make him not upset with you. You will find great benefit in sharing your kindness and compassion at all times. Have a great day, Natalie!

    I had a dream that I was at the shops with my sister when I found weed in her drink and had a sip, later on my sister left and I had to do a few more errands at the shop. As I was leaving the shops I saw my crush and we spoke for a bit were happy and laughing. His mum got there and picked him up as they were about to drive and I was walking away his mum said “is that you girlfriend” and he said “I wish”. The next day nicki minaj died and we all went to the same shops where my mum and a few more members of my family were sitting outside a shop with some drinks. I went and got a drink from zaraffas and asked my sister if she had weed and she gave me a little ziplock bag and I put some in my drink. My crush and I met up and I took him to where my family was sitting before, he sat next to my mum and I sat across he spilt his drink and I went and got him a new one. Overall I think he liked me in the dream. I have had numerous dreams all different ones, like when I was at school and walked into the girls toilets and saw him talking to a chick in there I got angry and walked odd my crush chased after me and we sorted it out, next minute he has him arm over me and we are sitting next to each other with my hand on his thigh and chest cuddling up to him while his arm is over me, and those are just two I have one nearly every night with him in it. Please help and is there something attached to the weed situation?

      Your dream is a reflection of various influences in your life. It is likely that you feel that weed helps you maintain social relationships. It is possible that you and your crush spend time together and smoke weed together. The presence of your mother is likely a manifestation of your desire to maintain a relationship with someone who your mother approves of. Determine what you want for your future, and nourish your relationship with your partner by spending additional time with him in person. Have a great day, Bella!

      Your dream is a reflection of your social and emotional desires. His appearance and qualities are manifestations of attributes that you find attractive in a partner.

      Your dream is a reflection of your emotional connection with your crush. The two of you likely share a strong social relationship. Because your crush is your brother’s best friend, it is possible that he is uncertain about maintaining a relationship with you. Doing so may cause stress in his relationship with your brother. Determine what you want for your future. Speak with your brother about your thoughts and feelings, as this will give you an opportunity to learn about your feelings regarding this relationship. Have a great day, Ria!

    I had a dream of my crush and she was crying and realized my true love for her when she read the letter. When I saw the letter I noticed that the letter was from me. As if I remembered writing it. It’s just that this case in real life, I had already confessed to her and she refused that I like her. So now…. What do I do?!? Do I write a letter or what??

      Your dream is a reflection of your emotional connection with your crush. You have already informed her of your thoughts and feelings, and she informed you that she is not interested in maintaining a relationship with you at this time. You can write a letter if you want to, but she has already shared herself with you. It is always beneficial to share your kindness and compassion at all times. Have a great day, Yasin!

      You do not have a crush on the person who appeared in your dream, but it is possible that your feelings for him are growing. You often feel like the third wheel, so this could have manifested in your dream with your cousin being the third wheel. Take this time to determine what you want for your future. If there is someone in your life that you want to maintain a relationship with, then speak with that person about your thoughts and feelings. Nourish your relationship with your cousin by spending additional time with her in person. Have a great day, Oryleigh!

      Your dream is a reflection of your previous emotional connection with your crush. The two of you now go to different schools, so make a decision about what you think is viable and appropriate for your future. If you want to reach out to him, then do so. If not, then allow this dream to fade and focus your emotional energy elsewhere. Have a great day, Rain!

    I had a dream about my possible crush saying he wasn’t looking for anything right now. Then later on we were talking in the dream and he said I was a player anyways (I don’t know why I’ve never been with a guy. I was with a guy for a day he fingered me and left me 2 years ago). Yesterday he went to prom with me and he was a gentleman opened doors took pictures and he went to get me punch.( I asked him) I’m honestly not sure if I like him as a friend or more. His friends always jokingly call him gay, but that’s honestly how a lot of people are. I have never been wrong with my gaydar and it just doesn’t go off for him though I don’t think he’s fully straight. I get super upset and when I see him in pictures or videos with other girls. I’m not sure if I should say something or not. Everytime I wake up from a dream about him I’m always sweating.
