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!

    One time I had a dream where I helped orphaned children who also happened to be mutants. My crush worked on the other side, but we had some sort of prior relationship. My crushes side comes to my hideout, and I run with the kid I was protecting at the time. Just as I was escaping my crush was in front of me. He gave me his weapon and told me to run, and then I told him I loved him. Then I woke up.

      Your dream is a reflection of your positive energy. It is clear that you want to help those who are in need of support. Being chased is a manifestation of your worries and concerns. Allow the negative aspects of this dream to fade. If you are chased in the future, then address whatever is chasing you. This will help reduce similar dreams from manifesting in the future. Have a great day, Morgan!

      The presence of your late parents in your dream could be a reflection of your emotional relationship with them. You likely would want their approval for your relationship. This dream is likely a manifestation of your social and emotional relationship with your crush. Take this time to determine what you want for your future. Speak with your crush about your thoughts and feelings. Share your kindness and compassion with everyone in your life, as this will help you honor the memory of your parents. Have a great day, Susan!

    So last night I dreamt of my crush and we were in gym class playing a game. The gym teacher told me it was my turn to play and to chose a partner. I was just standing there looking for someone to be my partner and he ran to me and said how he feels about me. He went where he sat. I told the teacher I wanted to go alone and while I was speaking with the teacher I saw he was staring at me and he smiled and I smiled back. I was lucky the bell rang so the game was over. After class, the teacher ordered me and him t clean up and somehow I tripped and he giggled a little and then he walked up to me and hugged me. I then pushed to the wall and we started passionately making out. In real life, he is really shy and somehow in the dream, I felt this sudden feeling of his true self. We both were comfortable speaking with each other and all but in reality and it is not as so comfortable. What does this all mean? I am hoping for your reply!

    I had a dream that he [my crush] wrote me a letter that he personally handed to me at my favorite shopping centre that he really liked me and he wanted me to reply to him if I would want him in my life as a permanent fixture. I said yes eventually after a long day at a difficult day at work. After that I went to spend a day with him at work where he accidentally dropped a bowl of green salad in his company car. He pushed the salad off the seat and proceeded to get into the car.

    so I’ve liked him since elementary school we’re both in high school now and we’ve been friends ever since, but I want to be more than friends but I’m to scared to tell him because I’m scared of rejectment. But I’ve told my friends and his brother(who is my friend as well.) So last night I had a dream we were in school and he walked up to me and started to hold my hand, then I and my group of friends were leaving and he ran up and pulled me aside and kissed me then all my friends started awwing. so what should I do???

Please respond back if that’s ok with you because I don’t want what I’m gonna tell you out on a public page, I hope you understand.

    I dreamt about my crush. We were talking about some stuff when he suddenly back hugged me. I felt my cheeks were burning. My friends were staring at me, they looked shocked but suddenly squealed. I think my friends in irl don’t really support my affection to my crush since they ship him and another girl, who is also a friend of mine (Yes, I told them about my crush.) so I was really shocked (in the dream) when they did that.

    Right now I don’t really think I like my crush right now, but I still do because he’s kinda flirted with everyone. So in my dream we were at his old school with tons of people and he was only flirting with me, and towards the end, he kissing me on the lips and smiled as if it didn’t mean anything. In real life he kinda changed because he was a respectful person and didn’t touch or flirt with anyone, now he flirts with a lot of girls. Before I think he used to like me because he called me pretty and stuff and he kept looking at me but I didn’t care because by that time he started flirting with my cousin and other girls. So what does this mean?

      Your dreams are reflections of your thoughts regarding your crush. You and your crush are not dating, so his behaviors are entirely reasonable. If you want to maintain a relationship with him, then speak with him about your thoughts and feelings. He does not know that you like him, so he is attempting to nourish relationships with people that may have feelings for him. Strengthen your relationship by spending additional time with him in person. Have a great day, Julia!

    I had a dream about this guy that I used to speak to him every day. But I haven’t spoken to him in a few days or so. I dreamt that I was crying with my family and he was there with his father. They helped us and he started to look at me in a certain gaze. Both of our parents questioned if there was something between us going on but we didn’t respond. Later he took me some where… it was a few meters away from our parents I think. He then kissed me out of nowhere. What does this mean?? Amen I going to meet him somewhere and we’ll start a relationship or is my subconscious telling me to get over him??

He helped us out and he looked at me with a certain gaze. In my dream my parents questioned if there was something between us but we didn’t respond. He then asked me to follow him and I did… when he knew the others couldn’t see us he kissed me. What does this mean? Do I still like him or does it mean I will meet him in a few days??

    I dreamt about my crush twice
    the first one is I went to the pool and saw him so I got out the pool going outside the place but he followed me and told me that there was nothing going on with the girls he is talking to. He accompanied me going down the stairs.
    Then asked me if i I can be his girlfriend and I said yes. We went to a school to take an entrance exam and I supported him and a guy friend of mine pulled my hair and my crush got jelous.
    the second dream is I was at home with my little cousin and babysitting her. We slept and I heard a band doing a parade outside which is the band my crush and me joined. after the parade my brother, my crush and my friends went inside our house. my crush went inside the room where i fell asleep then i slowly open my eyes and saw him so I closed it again until he went out. i thought he went away already so went to the other room and he is inside and he stared and smiled at me
