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 connection with your ex. You likely have strong feelings for him, and you may feel that he has similar feelings for you. Your lack of care in regards to your classmates is a sign that you are thinking about your crush quite a bit. 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. Have a great day, Tiff!

    I had a dream my crush was in my class and his friend gave me a note saying he liked me. We talked and he gave me his hoodie. I wore it. Then he asked me to wear his number on my cheek and I did. He got really happy. Then we started dating and everything was okay.

Of course, if you do not reach out to him, then he may move on. Make a decision about what you want for your future.

    I’m weirded out… Dunno how I feel about this…
    But this was my dream from the night before…
    I dunno where I was or what not but I was with my ex-crush at this temple like place. Ex – crush so basically the guy I had the hots on before I got with my boyfriend. Not ex-bf
    To note this is a guy I have not met in the past year or two cause he was a friend of my ex but we became friends too like going on trips as a group even without my ex
    Then it was all kinda sweet cause we were friends too. I know how to keep my cool even when around guys I liked cause I never wanted to break a friendship over him being weirded out or what not. Anywho, he was the one nervous instead.
    Then somehow we magically reached a sitting area. He started sitting across me before moving to my side. It was like a bench type sesting. Anyway, I was imagining him telling me he liked me and I could feel myself getting giddy and ahead of myself in my head.
    Then I remembered I have a boyfriend and felt soooo bad for wanting to say yes even if I was happy with the guy I’m with.
    Out of the blue, another girl came around and slams the table from between us. She was a pretty thing and she was mad cause I was with her boyfriend or crush (I forgot). Basically she’s saying he’s my property and fuck off with the guy while the guy is looking shocked. I don’t know but I was chill and was smiley and shizz when I told her congratulations on scoring a wonderful guy and we’re just friends cause he hadn’t said anything about asking me out at the time. She was taken aback and retracted her claws, embarrassed “umm… OK… Sorry” smiled and ran away. I could only laugh.
    The boy smiled sheepishly and asked if I’d like to have a walk with him.
    I just went cause what the hell were we doing at the tables anyway.
    Then he proceeded to start saying how back then (1year-2years ago) he actually liked me and just didnt dare to say anything. I was a floating loner and he was a handsome guy that a lot have chased. I nodded to everything he said but before I could finish the dream I woke…
    Wish there was some closure tho… Even it was just a dream
    Hope someone can tell me what it means

      This dream is a manifestation of your previous emotional relationship with your ex crush. It sounds that you are currently maintaining a relationship with your partner. Your interaction with the girl in your dream may be an indication of your thoughts regarding various social influences that you have at this time. Allow thoughts of other people to fade, and focus your emotional energy on your current partner. Have a great day, Meygan!

    I had a dream sitting next to my crush(married man) and he was sharing stuff with me from his phone. It was as if he was letting me in on deep secrets. We were sitting too close to one another in a hall.I was mesmerized and he was very happy. The dream was peaceful.

      Your dream is a reflection of your social relationship with your crush. However, you are aware that he is married. Allow your emotional connection with him to fade. It is acceptable for you to continue to share your kindness and compassion with everyone in your life. Do not attempt to harm his marriage. You may find benefit in nourishing a romantic relationship with someone else. Have a great day, Anon!

      Your dream is a manifestation of various influences in your life. You are interested in maintaining a relationship with your crush, but you are aware that she has a partner at this time. You may also have thoughts regarding pregnancy. Since she has a partner, do not attempt to nourish a romantic relationship with your crush. It is appropriate to continue to share your kindness and compassion with everyone in your life. Have a great day, Brianna!

    I had a dream that I saw my old crush (this crush is my ultimate crush) in his university because we were having a dance practice there. Later on he started to flirt with me and revealed that he likes me. My boyfriend in reality is also my boyfriend in the dream. He was there sleeping in the corner. When he woke up and saw us flirting, he entered the conversation and emphasized that he is my boyfriend. I introduced them to each other. He and my crush suddenly started arguing who’s better for me and roasting each other. I felt the dilemma in that dream. My family was also there. In the end, my sister told my crush to just leave, so he rushed out. I tried to follow him but my family forbid me. My boyfriend tried to comfort me but I still kept thinking about my crush and feeling bad for him. Conversations within my family continued and I woke up.

      Three different social relationships appeared in this dream. Your ex is someone from your past who you are not interested in maintaining a relationship with. Your crush appeared, which may be an indication of your emotional desires. And your brother’s friend appeared, which may be a sign that you are aware that he is interested in maintaining a relationship with you. Make a decision about what you want for your future, and take whatever action that you feel is appropriate. Have a great day, Laura!

    i had a dream about my crush a few days ago. well, actually, more of a nightmare..
    he was talking with his friends and when i ran past him and glanced at him to get to my locker because i was running late for class, he stopped talking and blushed visibly. i didn’t hear what his friends said to him after but it sounded as if they were teasing him. then a friend of his on the other side of the hall, near me while i was trying to get my locker open, starting saying something along the lines of, “…-how could he like her? she’s so ugly…-“ and i did not catch anything else. i was about to cry and then i woke up.
    but the crazy thing is, two days later, almost the same thing happened! i had to get my stuff from my locker because i was late to class, i ran past him, yadayadayada. except this time, he kept talking but more quietly and he stared at me subtly.
    then as i was struggling to open my locker, one of his friends, a girl i saw many times, said the same exact thing! i held back my tears and had to run back to the class without my things bc i couldn’t open my locker. help!!? 🙁
    please respond asap, i have no idea what just happened??!
