    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 dreamt of my crush and i texting last night. my crush and i only text with matters regarding academics with me asking for help, and with me texting him first. however yesterday night (before the dream), he texted me asking for help with academics as well. and i went to sleep pretty late and i dreamt of him asking me if i was free and started telling about how his day had been, why he was angry and stuff like that. he then said that he wanted to call me and i was “the reason for his smiles these days”.
      could this possibly be a dejavu sorta situation? could this actually be true and mean that my crush and i have some sort of future together? i heard from his close friends that he isnt intrested in looking for a relationship as of now, so could this be just a false alarm or might this be actually come true?

      I had a dream my crush came and comforted me. He’s in a really close friendship with a girl and i don’t know where it will lead, but i asked him about her in the dream and he said he never liked her that way. then he kissed me. what does this mean? does it mean i should pursue a relationship and it will work out?

      I dreamt this guy, I guess my ‘crush’, was being really mean to me?

      This guy and I have been talking irl for a while and trying to meet up (we’re both super busy).

      In my dream I was in trouble and he wouldn’t help me, and then after we wen’t back to his parents and even they told him off for the way he was talking to me. He called me unattractive etc which I’m guessing points to some hidden insecurities I have?

      Thanks in advance xxx

        My dreams are even worse the past few nights I have had nightmares of my crush stalking me and wanting to murder me and then I bump into him in real life and I know he hates me as we had a big online argument . He was chasing me with a knife last night and we were screaming at each other when he asked me out on a car drive date . But some nights we are happy and passionate and have sex with each other . Please tell me what it means I’m worried thank you . Oh I’m a girl by the way.

      I just had a dream about me being at some party and my crush was there. I was under the blankets cause it was “cold” but we both talked a bit. Then they went downstairs and left me for 1 minute. They came back and said “Hi I’m back, I was lonely. And it was cold,”. So she layed next to me on top of the blanket. Knowing me I said something stupid as in, “I thought you were cold?” And she replied with “we can join together,” and she went under the blankets and got a little bit closer to me, but she was facing me. She’s my crush but she’s also a good friend of mine too. Do you know what any of this means at all?

      I’m a bisexual guy and I had a dream about a guy (pretty sure he’s straight) that I was in the shower at my house and he randomly came over knocked on the door so I put on a robe and opened the door, he walked in and asked if it was fine to have a shower I was like oh ok then yeah!! So he got undressed and then took my robe off, we complimented each other’s bodies and didn’t do anything sexual except look- we got into the shower but for some reason the showers were like next to each other but individual but you could see everything, then I woke up.

      I had a dream that me and my crush (he likes me too but we arent dating) were inside my house but somehow my house looks like a huge mansion. We were sitting on 2 different sofas side by side and he kissed me and touched my hands. It felt so real.somehow the next thing i saw is that he sleeps in a bed.

      I had a dream last night that my crush was in math class with me.a while later her girlfriend kisses him in the corner. The next day in real life I found out he has been dating that girl since 4 days ago and I would tell him in lunch to go with his girlfriend because he was sitting in my lunch table and he would say ” no her friend don’t like me ” and smile deeply into my eyes .

Then there was an event and he walk passed behind me but I was anxious if he ever smelled my hair because I thought I didn’t wash my hair. What does that mean?

      So, last night I had a dream that my family was throwing some kind of party. My crush was there, and I spent time with him. The most vivid thing in my dream that I remember, is when I hugged him because he was sad(he gets bullied), and I usually don’t hug anyone. I also remember making him smile and laugh, which whenever I visit him usually happens(we live 20 min apart). Can you tell me what the most vivid part of my dream meant, please?

      Hey, I had a dream that my crush asked someone out right in front of me and just as she rejected him I stood up and ran away. His friend came to talk to me and said he knew now that I liked him, I also saw him mouth “I haven’t talked to her in forever though”. Still he came over and sat a table distance away from me and asked me about my family and that maybe my oldest brother could date him sister I think as a joke. What does this mean? He didn’t really address it to me but he started talking to me too. Thankyou for your help!
