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 twice this week. The first time, it was pretty vague but he was just there, talking and smiling a lot to me. The second time, it was an org party of mine and for some reason he was there too (he’s not a part of my org tho) and we were both surprised to see each other. We spent the whole night talking. What could it mean? He’s taken in real life tho 🙁

      Your dream is a manifestation of your social and emotional connection with your crush. The org party could be a sign of other influences in your life. Take this time to determine what you want for your future. Speak with your crush about your thoughts and feelings. Nourish this relationship by spending additional time with him in person. Have a great day, Mica!

    So, I am totally in love with this guy. I have known him since I was three and all I’ve been able to think about ever since we were little is how much I want to date him. But, every time we talk to each other, I get a slap in the face reminder that he will never like me on account of the fact that he calls me his sister. He just started dating someone new, so I’ve been trying to get over my feelings, but last night I had a dream. I had a dream that I was with this lady, kind of a witch-like lady, who brought me to places and said I could do whatever I want and no one will remember when I’m brought back. So I went over to where he was sitting and I wrapped my legs around him. We started kissing and it was amazing. He didn’t resist he just went along with it. Then he said to me, “Let’s go somewhere more private.” I can’t remember anything after that, but that was probably the best dream I’ve ever had. I don’t know how to get over him and don’t know if I will. But I really need help because it is so painful to see him and know he will never feel the same way about me. Please help me!

          I’m 16 and a sophomore in highschool. I’ve became friends with a freshmen….and I’ve started to have really strong feelings for him. I think about him all day, and mostly before I go to sleep too. I”m not attractive at all, I would say that I’m ugly. He’s way out of my league but I can’t stop having feelings for him. I had a dream about him last night where we for whatever reason having school outside at some random place at night. We were sitting in desks in the grass outside. He drove up in his car (he dosent have a car) parked and sat in the desk right in front of me. He pulled his chair and sat right in front of my desk. His face was inches away from mine, and all I could think was that I wanted to hug him, and tell him I missed him. He kissed me. It wasn’t a long kiss…. maybe like 2 seconds. I asked him if he liked me, and he said yes. I told him that I liked him too. But there is no way that he could ever like me like that in real life. I’m really tired of chasing a fantasy that will never happen. I don’t know what to do. Please help me. Do you have any advice for me??? I’m even trying to lose weight so that I’ll be “good” enough for him.

    I dreamt that I was at school and someone went and told my crush I liked him (this has happend alot of times in real life.) And then I just braved it and admitted all my true feelings towards him and I thought he would reject me, but he actually was so kind and supportive and he seemed flattened by my interest in him. So then we just walked around school talking and then as he was leaving to go to his class he hugged me and we kissed on the cheek. I really wish this would happen in real life but he is 2 years older than me (we look the same age though) but I am now tempted to tell him that I like him (in real
    life) becuase I really like him and he doesn’t know how much I love him.
    Any clue of what my dream indicates or what I should do next 🙂

    Today I had a dream in which I was sitting with my friends on a bench. My crush was sitting beside me. He pulled me towards himself to say something in my ears “lemme….. Never mind” he said. I told him what was it, he said nothing. After that I went to sit on another bench. He came to me. Hold my face and pushed my hairs back behind my ears and gently kissed me on my cheek. The dream felt so so real. I started to blush and look down. My heart got heavy and I couldn’t able to breathe. He said that why am I not able to breathe then I heard him saying isn’t that what I wanted from him?….. I guess the universe was shocked after my reaction. 😅😂

    I had a dream where my crush finds out about a letter I made, it has his initials at the front and it has a blue and pink color. When he was about to read it I forced him to give it to me because I was pretending that my friend owns it, I was nervous because I don’t want him to know about the letter since he has a gf. So we fight over it not actually the right term for it but he was laughing and idk sorry for my bad english though.

      Your dream is about your social and emotional relationship with your crush. You are interested in developing a relationship with him. However, he is currently in a romantic relationship. Do not attempt to maintain a romantic relationship at this time. It is always beneficial to share your kindness and compassion with everyone in your life. If his relationship naturally ends and he reaches out to you, then speak with him about your thoughts and feelings at that time. Have a great day, Dana!

    I had a dream about me and my bestfriend who is secretly my crush standing in my kitchen. I was busy making something to eat while he was just standing there. I can’t really remember if it was something that gave me a fright or what I saw… But something we saw through the kitchen window caused us to hug. We hugged for a minute and I wanted to let go and he held on. Then he kissed me and I pushed him away… And that’s when I woke up.

    Now I’m gay but he doesn’t know it however, I’m sure he suspects it. He makes himself out to be homophobic but he was completely fine when I confessed I had a crush on him. I’m really confused

    I had a dream where I was talking to one of my friends and then my crush appeared. Keep in mind, this is the guy I’ve like for basically 4 years. He came up to us and was talking to us for a bit but then he had to walk away. While he was talking to us, he was trying to play around with my fingers, tryna hold my hand. When he began walking away, he was still tryna hold my hand. My hand felt all warm and tingly and we were both smiling like goofs at each other.

I was “out of my body” and I saw him sitting next to me and faced me, leaning closer into me, giving me a small peak on my lips. I felt tenderness and soft lips placed on my own.

That connection did not break when the plates fell, which could be a manifestation of a confrontation that influenced both of you. Determine what you want for the future of this relationship.
