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!

    In real life this boy that sits beside me asked me do you know (my crush’s full name) then I was like yh they also go to the same club so they know each other well. Why did he ask me that I know his crush cause it feels like my crush told him something about me?

      It is certainly possible that this person’s behavior was caused by a discussion that he had with your crush. You may assume that your crush is aware of your statement. Determine what you want for the future of this relationship. Speak with him about your thoughts and feelings, and give him an opportunity to do the same. Have a great day, Yr!

      Your dream is a reflection of your social and emotional connection with your crush. You are interested in developing a relationship with him. However, he is in a relationship. Allow thoughts of him to fade. Focus your emotional energy elsewhere. Continue to share your kindness and compassion with him. If his relationship naturally ends, then speak with him about your thoughts and feelings. Have a great day, I!

    Hello! Thank you so much for this article! 😁

    A month ago, I had this dream where my crush hugged me, and it was the most special hug I ever received. I mean even after woken up, I was still feeling this warm feeling of bliss!
    And yesterday I dreamt again about him, this time we just smiled at each other and I put my hand and his hand, once again I felt this weird warm feeling I’ve never felt before, even in real life.

    So I’m desperately trying to understand what does it mean!
    He seems inaccessible for me because we don’t have any occasion to meet… We have a lot of similar interests but he is so handsome that he already has a lot of girls who flirt with him so I thought it would be wiser to forget about him (but my dreams say otherwise)

    Thank you so much for your help, I really need someone to lighten me about the meaning of my dreams 😊

      Your dreams are reflections of your thoughts and feelings. He is likely an attractive person, though you should not allow other people from preventing you from attempting to speak with him. The two of you likely share a strong social connection, so you will find benefit in speaking with him about your thoughts and feelings. Have a great day, Gumi!

      You are shy, and you will find benefit in being more direct with your behaviors. It will be beneficial for you to determine what you want for your future. If you want to nourish a relationship with your crush, then spend additional time with him in person. Perhaps try to make eye contact. Speak with him about your thoughts and feelings when it is appropriate. Have a great day, Hf!

    I had a dream lately when my crush says hi to me in a shy way like he was force to do it—in a shy way. The venue is there on my school’s cafeteria I’m with my friend. My crush showed up, all by himself and says hi to me then I hide my giddiness at that moment, and in my dream i could feel so tense up and embarassed. Then after my crush says hi to me, he walk away in a slow lazy walk manner that he usually do every morning like he is so tired of all the sht about going here at school. In my waking life, I had a friend and she says she is going to have a dare on my crush on saying hi to me and I’m so fvcked up and doesn’t know what to do here on my waking life. I don’t know what does it mean. Then today, I sent a message to my crush (my first message actually cause a friend ask a favor to ask my crush about their academic club) until now, my crush didn’t reply back or seen my message and now I’m fvcked up like my dream was.

    I had this dream that I cornered and kissed my crush (and he kissed back), and after that we walked together and started chatting. It was a pretty lucid dream ’cause I still can recall some sensations and impresions from it , even in the very dream I questioned myself if it was real.
    I haven’t been able of stop thinking of this dream since I’ve had it, is the first one of this kind I’ve ever had, usually my dreams are a disturbing-awkward blur, and I don’t know how to interpret this new outlook. Help?
