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!

      It seems as though your dream is a reflection of your social and emotional relationships. Your dream took place at your work and on the road. This means that you want to feel comfortable with this relationship. It is perfectly normal and acceptable to have the feelings that you are having. Determine what you want for your future and take appropriate action. Speak with your crush about your thoughts and feelings. Have a great day, Anon!

          Your dream may be a reflection of various influences in your life. You likely want to nourish a relationship with your crush. You may want to take risks in your life. It would be reasonable for you to want to maintain a relationship with someone who makes you feel secure and safe. Ensure that this dream influences you to share your kindness and compassion with everyone in your life. Have a great day, Anon!

    I had a dream where my crush leaned in to tell me something and instead he bit my ear… and then in the second one he continuously put his hand on mine when we were at school and were climing a set of stairs, it was very crowded and I was holding on to the railing. His grip was quite strong too.
    I’m just confused..

      Your dreams are reflections of your social and emotional connection with your crush. The first dream is a sign that you feel as though he is close to you.

      This dream may be a sign that you want to spend time with your crush. The sports center may be a reflection of your athleticism or awareness that he enjoys being an athlete. Determine what you want for your future. If you want to maintain a relationship with him, then speak with him about your thoughts and feelings. Nourish this relationship by spending additional time with him in person. Have a great day, Anon!

    Lastnight I had an odd dream about arguing with my crush. We both already told eachother that we like eachother in real life. But nothing has really moved forward, so you could say we are taking things slow. Which I like a lot. But what really got me thinking and what I dont understand was that in my dream when we got into an arguement, he went and was spiteful talking to other girls and it was confusing. Because that’s not his personality. At least I haven’t seen it as such.

      The dream may have been a reflection of your frustrations within the relationship. He likely has similar feelings for you. He may want to move your relationship along, but he may know that you want to move slowly. Determine what you want for the future of this relationship. Speak with him about your thoughts and feelings. Give him an opportunity to share himself with you as well. Have a great day, Sam!

    I had a dream that me and the guy I like were cuddling on my bed watching a movie. We made out couple of times. We were gonna have sex but we didn’t have a condom so we just made out some more. He kissed me all over my face. Then we went downstairs I helped him do laundry. In real life we are friends with benefits we talk everyday and he is the sweets ever with me.
    He’s always there for me and I’m always there for him

      Your dream is a reflection of your social and emotional desires. In your waking life, you are uncertain about how to proceed with this relationship. Your crush is currently maintaining a relationship with your friend. Determine if you believe if it is appropriate to attempt to nourish a relationship with your crush at that time. Take appropriate action. Have a great day, Alice!

    I had a dream about my crush. We hugged a lot, and once i laid my head on his chest i heard his heart beat. I wanted to kiss him, but he said “Not now, soon”. That dream felt very real. Like a vivid dream. What could this “Not now, soon” mean?

      Your dream is a reflection of your social and emotional connection with your crush. He has moved away, so you are aware that this relationship may no longer be viable. You have explained that your inaction may be responsible for you not maintaining romantic relationships with people. Perhaps allow this knowledge to influence you to take action. If there is someone else that you want to establish a relationship with, then speak with that person about your thoughts and feelings. Have a great day, Gina!

    Hi. I had a dream that my brother had invited a friend over to hang out and play games. I seen him at school before but I never spoke to him, but I always thought he was very good looking. So, in my dream I was completely topless and only had my pajama “booty” shorts on and we were facing each other talking and making jokes casually. I found this quite odd and I also want to know why.

      This dream may be a reflection of various social desires in your life. You may be interested in maintaining a new social relationship. This person may be someone neutral to you. This may be because you are uncertain about who you want to develop a relationship with. Being naked in this dream may be a sign that you want to be open and honest with your partner at all times. Determine what you want for your future and take appropriate action. Have a great day, Angie!

    I had a dream that my brother invited his friend (a guy I thought was cute) to play games and I was topless (no shirt or bra) and in my pajama short shorts in my living room hanging out with them and then I started talking to my brother’s friend casually. We were sitting facing each other on the couch and laughing and talking about games When I woke up, I kind of found this odd. I never spoke once to the guy in my life.

    I had a dream that my crush randomly came to my table of group of friends and then my friend started saying “I wonder who your crush is. “But she doesn’t know in real life and u said to her in a cute voice “I wonder who your crush is. “And my crush started laughing cutely. Also my friend has the sane crush as me but she doesn’t know I still like him. Then I said to her in a cute voice”Do u want me to shout out their name?”And she started laughing and then my crush started laughing and smiling again cutely. For some reason he was mostly looking at me. After we needed to leave together I got a pen(that in real life I write it only to write notes about my crush) and I drank from the pen and threw it in the bin.
