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 where me and my crush were in a classroom glancing at each other. Then suddenly we were at my house with my family. Some of my family members had to leave so the rest walked them to the door, but my crush stayed. We slowly started walking closer to each other, until we were right in front of each other. Then my crush hugged me, and held me really close and tight. Then we started glancing at each other’s lips, getting closer and closer. Then we started snogging lol. Then I sort of put my legs around his waist, and we snogged a couple more times, then we stopped and he just held me like that. He had his face buried at the side of my neck if you get how I mean. The dream was amazing it felt soo real!! 🥰🥰🥰

      Your dream is a reflection of the social and emotional connection that you feel with your crush. The location of your school and house are signs that you want this relationship to be accepted by your friends and family. Your intimate interaction with him may be a sign that you want to strengthen this relationship. Speak with him about your thoughts and feelings. Nourish this relationship by spending additional time with him in person. Have a great day, Klaudia!

      The note was likely a reflection of your desire to receive a communication from your crush. It is likely that you want to develop a social or emotional relationship with him. Take this time to determine what you want for the future of this relationship. Perhaps speak with him about your thoughts and feelings. Give him an opportunity to share himself with you as well. Have a great day, Liam!

      This dream is a reflection of your social and emotional relationships. You may be thinking about developing an intimate relationship with your partner at this time. Because of this, you might be thinking about becoming pregnant. This thought appeared in your dream as a discussion between his father and your nan. You feel a strong connection with your partner, and this is why you felt comfort with him. Have a great day, Izzy!

      Your dream is a reflection of various influences in your life. You may be interested in maintaining a relationship with your crush. The concern of materialism may be reflected in the clothing shop of your dream. You will find great benefit in reducing the amount of things that your purchase and own. If your dream is accurate, then this action may cause him to want to maintain a relationship with you. Have a great day, Beso!

    So my crush told me he liked me back but we aren’t dating because he doesn’t wanna be in a relationship. So now I’m constantly having dreams about him. One of the dreams was when ( this is so weird) that I was pregnant and he was smiling which is so weird. The second dream is always trying to impress him and doing what he likes but trying to be better and all I could remember is just making him smile and then he started teasing me and making me laugh and smile

      You crush has informed you of his feelings. Your dreams are manifestations of your desires as well. He does not want to be in a relationship, so determine what you want for your future. Decide what is appropriate. Nourish your relationship by spending additional time with him in person. This will help to strengthen his feelings for you. Have a great day, Nia!

      Your dream is a reflection of your social and emotional desires. It is possible that you have been thinking about him. He may have been an amalgamation of various people who are in your life. Your relationship as his girlfriend may be a sign of what you want for your future. If there is someone that you want to maintain a relationship with in your life, then speak with that person about your thoughts and feelings. Have a great day, Sarah!

    Good Morning!! Well, today I had a dream about my crush. I was walking out of the bathroom in school and he was just standing there, I was blushing. He noticed it and gave me a flying kiss. Then, after walking into multiple classes I walked into my last class and my crush was there. When he spotted me, he stood up from his seat and pulled my wrist and when he sat down, he pulled me and I ended up sitting on his lap.

      Your crush’s mother invited you to join the club. It is unlikely that she would be direct regarding her knowledge of your feelings toward her son. She probably thinks that you are nice. She may want you to maintain a relationship with him. Determine what you want for your future. Speak with him about your thoughts and feelings. Have a great day, Anon!

His insult may be a manifestation of his behaviors during your waking life. His insult may be a reflection of the media that you consume.

    Hi😊
    I dreamt last night about my crush that I like for 2 years now but he recently told me in real life through a friend that he doesn’t feel the same way and that literally broke my heart.😞So last night I dreamt about him and I haven’t seen him in almost a month.In my dream he followed me everywhere but we never talked.Almost at the end of my dream we were alone in a park with lots of trees around us.I remember I told him how ashamed I was that his friend had to tell me of his rejection and not himself.He said sorry and I could really see it in his eyes but then out of the blue he gave me a hug and kissed me.I was so suprised but I felt butterflies.Then suddenly he said he has to go and ran to his car driving away while looking at me with so much sadness written all over his face.Please give me some advice.
