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!

      Your dream is a reflection of various influences in your life. It is possible that you are interested in maintaining a relationship with your crush. You may have thoughts about your ex’s crush. Make a decision about what you want for your future. It is normal to have thoughts regarding both men and women. Nourish your relationships by spending additional time with each of them in person. Have a great day, Blue!

    I had a dream last night until I woke up this morning. It is very clear. Ive dreamt about my former crush (also former workmate/colleague/friend). The scenery happens before my birthday and Ive invited my former colleagues including him. Then after their working hours, we rode their shuttle service and I suddenly forget the grocery in the company. I went down the bus then when I turn, my crush was going with me.. then he suddenly became so sweet, embracing me at the back, holding my hands.. I honestly just think of him yesterday for only a few minutes because I do invite them for tomorrow’s celebration of my birthday (in real life). But I dont think about him before i go to sleep. And he also got a family now since I left the company..

    What this might mean?

Make a decision about what you want for your future. Make a decision about what you want for the future of your relationship. Speak with your crush about your thoughts and feelings. If you are not interested in maintaining this relationship, then simply share your kindness and compassion with everyone in your life. Have a great day, Dee!

    Laat night I had a dream about this guy I have liked over the years and we never really went there. He had taken me out on a couple of dates but that was it and then it all fizzled out. Recently I questioned him about it after reuniting with him after 2 years. and he said he doesn’t want a relationship was pretty obvious, although we kissed that night and danced when were out. I have been thinking about him a lot since that time which was over a month ago. He’s not someone I talk to everyday as he is generally not good at replying, although over the weekend we had.an ongoing conversation on messenger….In my dream we were with other people watching tv he was behind me then suddenly I leant over to kiss him as he wanted to kiss and I kissed him he kissed me a few more times but it was more intimate this time and we hugged and was so lovely. Now I’m thinking about it and him all again.

      The two of you share a strong social connection, though it is possible that he is not interested in maintaining a romantic relationship with you at this time. This could be for many reasons. It is possible that he cares deeply for you, but is not ready to maintain a life long relationship. Continue to nourish this relationship by spending additional time with him in person.

    I had a dream where I took my crush and showed him around my hometown, the school I studied, my old friends and all. We both know we love each other but officially we didn’t had the courage to put that in light. Everyone of my people were like “Cool! You finally won him!” After spending time at my place, suddenly things turned out and we both were in Paris before the Eiffel Tower under a pinkish sky, almost evening and the people were scattered around in motion. I was walking ahead and suddenly he pulled me by my hands, lifted me high before the Tower and said that he can’t keep hiding his love and kissed my lips before everyone. This was my dream but one year later, I came across the same view of the Pinkish Paris from my dream in a picture from Google but I actually wasn’t searching for any of that. What is it all about? It’s about 2 and a half years now but it still freaking me! What does it mean?

    It wasn’t just last night when I dream about my crush. The dreams about him are continuous but irregular. In ALL of them we don’t talk or do anything. In them I’m usually handing him a paper, or I’m far from him but looking at him. He doesn’t react or look at me though. I guess this means nothing..?

    A few months ago I had a dream about my crush. He’s on my swim team. In my dream I figured out he had a girl. Later in my dream he texted me and said “I don’t want her. She’s nothing compared to you. I want you not her.”. Then I woke up from for a text from him in the middle of the night from him? What can this mean?

      You woke up in the middle of the night due to one of his texts. If he is sending you messages late at night, then it is likely that he is interested in maintaining a relationship with you. Your dream may be a reflection of that knowledge. If he is currently in a relationship, then do not attempt to maintain a romantic relationship with him. If he is single, then speak with him about your thoughts and feelings. Nourish this relationship by spending additional time with him in person. Have a great day, Mara!

    I had a dream about my crush the other night. He already knows that I like him. In my dream, we were texting and he told me “why do you keep texting me? Can’t you understand that I do not like you? At least I don’t let my self fall for you, because I know I can’t have you!” (We study in different cities now and I haven’t seen him since August ‘18).
    I also had a dream about him 1 month ago.
    He came to visit. We were in my apartment and I was laying on the sofa and he was sitting next to me. I looked up the ceiling and it was full of post it notes. I asked what those were and he said that it was a way to express how he feels about me, that I should have told him that I liked him. And that I should have laid down with him on his bed where we were in a summer camp together. Then, he leaned on me to kiss me, but I wasn’t sure if I wanted to, so that’s when I woke up.

    So I had a dream about this one guy I’ve never talked to before, and a couple weeks later I have a huge crush on him. I told him the other day, something I’d never imagine myself doing. Is this some sort of sign that were supposed to be a thing? (He said he has a thing with someone, but she doesn’t like him like that)

Focus your emotional energy elsewhere. Make a decision about what you want for your future without him. Have a great day, Jainy!

    Last night, I dreamed of my crush. We were gathered in an event and we were casually hanging around. Then, I took out my phone to snap a photo and I called him to get in the photo. I only wanted half of our face in it so I asked him to get closer. All of a sudden, I felt his lips on my cheek then as I took a snap, his lips were already on my lips. I was blushing and we both pulled away. But I looked at him again and I gently kissed him again. That was the end. Ironically, before I had that dream we were at a celebration event but he was with his friends.

You will find great benefit in sharing your kindness and compassion with everyone in your life.
