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!

    So my relationship with my crush is kinda confusing… all of our friends and classmates think we’re a couple and ship us as one but he doesn’t seem to care too much and kinda wants them to stop.. but he stares at me in class, teases me, and makes dirty jokes at my expense. So, I had a really short dream where my crush teased me about something strange I was doing, which he does all the time irl. I’m not sure how to take this dream and I need help…

      His behaviors are indications that he is attracted to you. Your friends are aware of your connection. He may feel uncertain about your feelings toward him. Make a decision about what you want for the future of this relationship. Speak with him about your thoughts and feelings, and nourish this relationship by spending additional time with him in person. Have a great day, Piper!

    Last May 31, i had an afternoon sleep cause i was so tired. I dreamt of jichangwook and we were a couple. It was a game dream, the game was pretty realistic. You have to survive at all cost and i met him and we became a couple and i met the rest of his friends and my siblings. In the end we got out of the game. Its weird that im having good dream lately. Last may 29, i dreamt of my previous crush (not sure). We were pretty close in the dream than in real life. We were happy.

      Your dream is a reflection of your relationship with your crush and your appreciation of the actor that you appreciate. It is possible that you are interested in maintaining a new social or emotional relationship. Make a decision about what you want for your future. If you want to nourish a relationship with your crush, then speak with him about your thoughts and feelings at that time. Have a great day, Brianca!

    So I’ve liked my crush since the first or second term of school. It’s now summer break. We sat by each other in the very last class and we talked and stuff and I would give him goofy, stupid little drawling of deformed people. Sounds extremely weird when I write it or say it out loud buuut it was our thing I guess. I would always find something to talk about with him. He is very quiet and likes to be on his phone a lot. Any chance he takes to be on his phone he does it. Well I’ve been dreaming about him quite often. For three or four nights perhaps.
    My dream last night was about me running around school trying to find my locker, when I get into class I walk to my desk which is beside my crush but a old friend was there her name is Isabella. So I go sit behind my crush. I walk up to the teacher and ask for materials to start working. I walk back to my desk and my crush moves his desk to be by mine. His name is Aaron. So I ask Aaron if I could have a piece of paper. He ignored me and said exactly “You didn’t come to class a long time and now that you have you only have three minutes.” I nod and look up at the clock. Aaron moves his chair right close by mine and smiles as he goes back to his phone. I smile and watch him play and we sit there in silence for awhile but then o notice everything disappears and I wake up.
    The dreams I’ve had before are different completely except for where we sit and when we sit next to each other. One I had three nights ago was when he and I would sit arm by arm to each other and talk and smile. That’s basically what we did in school except we were arm by arm. We would just talk and smile.
    Does dreaming about him for three to four night mean anything?
    Does us being side by side enjoying each other’s company also mean anything?

    I had a dream over a month ago about this boy that I had a mutual relationship with (we’ll call him E). In the dream I felt so happy to see him and then we hugged for like 5 minutes. Then after we had a sword fight ?? When I woke up, I just felt different about E and now I think I like him? Then a few nights ago I had 2 major dreams about 2 different guys, one being E, and one about T. In the first dream about T, we held hands and danced around everywhere with each other, and it was a nice loveable moment. Then I skipped straight to a second dream with E, this dream was a lot more laid back and comfortable. We just laughed and had fun together. I’m confused on what these two dreams mean, because I obviously didn’t like E before the dream, and now I do.

      Your dreams are reflections of your social and emotional desires. The three different people who appeared in your dreams are manifestations of the people that you be attracted to in your life. It seems as though you feel a strong connection with E. Make a decision about what you want for the future of this relationship, and speak with him about your thoughts and feelings.

You are aware that your crush may be interested in maintaining a relationship with someone else. Since you do not think that you crush is interested in anyone else at this time, you should ensure that this dream guides you to make a decision about what you want for your future.

    I had a dream that my crush took hold of my hand when I told him it was shaking and said that I had to go to the office (in school) to get it checked out because it might be a trapped nerve. I replied by saying that it was my anxiety and that I would be fine as it had happened before but he still urged me to go to the office.
    P.S A few weeks ago my hand was shaking and it turned out to be a trapped nerve and in real life I have anxiety.

Your shaking hand was caused by a medical condition, so this may has appeared in your dream due to your knowledge of that condition. Make a decision about what you want for your future.

There were boys who are older than us tried to tease me and hurt me (maybe sexually harass me too) then my crush stood up for me and fought them. In real life yesterday, I decided to forget him. Does this mean, I should rethink about the situation?
