Dreaming About Your Crush? Find Out What Those Dreams REALLY Mean

Are your recurring dreams about your crush reflections of your waking life, or something more?

Sometimes, we dream about our crushes simply because we're thinking about them all day. Other times, they can have a hidden meaning beyond that.

Keep reading to discover some of the most common dreams about crushes and what they might reveal about your subconscious mind.

You and Your Crush Kissed

If you dream about you and your crush kissing, it mostly means that you've thought a lot about what it would like to be with them and wish that the two of you could be together. On the other hand, it can also mean that you're becoming more aware of who you are and becoming more accepting of who that is. You're eager for a relationship—but not necessarily ready for one. Take stock before you make your move.

Your Crush Asked You Out

If you dreamed about your crush asking you out, you're likely feeling positive about your self-image, and you're projecting that into your dream life. Feeling good about yourself makes you feel like your crush might be interested, too. Your brain is mentally preparing you for the occasion, so it might just be time to let that person know how you feel about them.


Your Crush Called You 'Bro'

A dream that your crush called you "bro" or another name that implies that they see you as one of the guys and means you're afraid that your crush sees you exclusively as a friend. You don't want to consider the idea that you'll never be more than just buddies—but you'll only know for sure when you find out how they really feel about you.

Your Crush Died

If your crush died in a dream, you're probably feeling a little traumatized by the whole experience—but the meaning isn't as dire as it might sound. Often, a death in a dream is your subconscious's way of telling you that it's time to let that person go. The crush you have on them may be ending. It can be a bittersweet moment, but it may be time to move on.


Your Crush Found Out You Liked Them

If you dreamed that your crush found out you liked them, it usually symbolizes change. Your crush's discovery of your feelings might mean that you're turning a new leaf in your life. You might be finding out something new about yourself as well. While it may also reflect your own worries about them discovering your true feelings for them, it's more indicative of transitions and uncovering truths about life.

Your Crush Ignored You

If your crush often fails to pay attention to you in real life, a dream about them ignoring you is simply a reflection of that. However, it may also mean that there's something about yourself that you're ignoring. It could be a sign that you need to look inward to see if there's an aspect of your life that needs more attention. With that in mind, try to put yourself on a path of self-improvement in that area. Your crush may even take notice.


Your Crush Likes You

If you dreamed that your crush likes you back, it's often a reflection of a change in your own attitude. There may be aspects about your crush that you admire, and maybe you've learned from them and tried to emulate those actions in yourself. With your confidence at a high, it may be a good time to make your move and let your feelings about them be known.


Your Crush Messaged You

If you have a dream that your crush messaged you, it can mean either that you feel closely connected to them or that you've been eagerly awaiting communication from them. Sometimes, the messages you receive in a dream are something that your subconscious is attempting to communicate with you, rather than something that you think your crush would actually say to you. It's a good idea to follow any advice or guidance you receive in these dreams.

Your Crush Rejected You

Being rejected by your crush in a dream typically means that you're not feeling confident about yourself and the way people see you. These dreams most often occur when you have no idea how your crush feels about you in return. If in your waking life you think that there's no chance they're interested in you, you may experience these dreams again and again. It may also be your subconscious rehearsing in case the real thing ever comes to pass. Eventually, you may get used to the idea and work up the courage to ask them for real.

Your Crush Was With Someone Else

If you dreamed about your crush being with someone else, it may be a reflection of real-life feelings of abandonment and feeling like you don't stack up against other people that your crush might potentially date. This dream can result from suspecting that they're more interested in someone else than they are with you, but most often, it's a result of insecurity getting the best of you.
