Who hasn’t spent hours at an end daydreaming about their crush? Imagining asking them out on a date, picturing their reaction, kissing them in our minds. It is, thus, not surprising that so many of us dream -regularly!- about our crushes.
While this might be nothing more than wishful thinking, it might also be an omen or a message our subconsciousness is trying to send to us through our dreams. In this article, we’ll discuss precisely what does it mean when you dream about your crush.
So, what does it mean when you dream about your crush? Can it be that there is no underlying symbolism to this dream, and that you are just processing your feelings in a healthy way? Well, yes, that can be the case, but dreams are usually far deeper than that. So we’ll discuss the different details you might have noticed and interpret what messages your mind might be trying to send your way!
Dreaming about Your Crush being ill or Dead
If during your dream your crush becomes gravely ill or dies, than you shouldn’t scratch it off as being just another nightmare. This is a way your subconscious is trying to tell you that your feelings for this person are not as strong as they once were.
You are getting ready to let go of what you felt for them, bit by bit, and your crush simply isn’t as passionate and hopeful any longer. Much in the way that a child might pretend their imaginary friend died when they are over that phase in their life, you are symbolically killing off your crush in order to let go of the feelings you once held for them.
If this was an unrequited crush, then this is great news! If you feel you have a chance at making things work, this might be the last chance before you lose interest on this person altogether.
Dreaming about an Old Crush
If you dream about an old flame you thought you were already over, this is something you should not readily ignore. It’s not just taking a walk down memory lane: It’s a great sign that something good is about to happen to you!
You will soon be experiencing good luck and will be given an opportunity to try something new, perhaps something you’ve been meaning to do for a long time. Don’t let your shyness or anxiety get the best of you, since this might very well be the opportunity of a lifetime.
If you are currently in a relationship, it might also mean that you are beginning to notice similarities between your partner and your old flame, meaning you probably have a well-defined type you fancy. This is nothing to concern yourself with, though, as the past is still the past, and your feelings for this old crush have most likely not been rekindled.
Dreaming about Someone Having A Crush on You
If you discover that someone you’ve been dreaming about has a crush on, you then this is a great sign: You are confident and proud of the person you’ve become.
You might have been an insecure and hesitant person in the past, and through effort and perseverance, you are slowly beginning to feel more confident about your abilities and your self-worth. Try and continue down this path, as it will lead to happiness and self-awareness. Remember not to give up in the face of adversity, as there will always be obstacles standing on your way.This dream is a reminder that you can overcome your obstacles and grow into a better person, the kind of person you are finally proud to be.
Dreaming about Your Crush Rejecting You
If the dream doesn’t have a happy ending, then this is not a bad omen, so don’t worry. It’s not a sign that you shouldn’t declare your feelings for your crush, but rather a reflection of your own insecurities and anxiety about being open about your own feelings.
You are currently experiencing fear of rejection and might not feel that you are worthy of this person’s attention, so it’s time to work on your self-worth and try to gain more confidence in yourself.
Remember that this is not a sign your crush will reject you in real life, but rather your own concern about this happening if you dare to take the leap, so perhaps it’s time to finally try and be honest about your feelings. You might be surprised by their reply!
Dreaming about Your Crush Kissing You
Your dream had the best possible outcome: Even if only in your mind, your crush finally kissed you, and it felt amazing!
This is a sign that it might be time to finally take a chance and ask them out, or at the very least make your emotions for them clearer, so that they are aware that you actually like them. You might be surprised by their reaction, even if you might be worried about being rejected.
You are probably understanding your feelings for them better and beginning to comprehend why you like them specifically, rather than just fancying them as a whole. Perhaps you’ve noticed just how smart they are, or funny, or how kind. Whatever the case, your feelings are starting to evolve and this might be the best moment to finally come clean about them.
Dreaming about A Celebrity Crush
This could be just a result of you watching a movie, show or concert featuring your celebrity crush and enjoying a bit of the impossible in your dreams, but it might have a deeper meaning than that.
You admire a trait that celebrity possesses, whether it’s their good looks, charming personality or even their intelligence. You might be looking for someone who shares this trait, or hoping for someone similar to walk into your life.
In this case, it’s best to try and consider if you are being unreasonable in your expectations. Maybe it’s possible for someone in your life to share this trait, or maybe you are setting your standards impossibly high and missing out on a real chance at happiness with someone else simply because they are not perfect in every way.
Dreaming about Your Crush Asking You Out on A Date
Thought this can very well be just wishful thinking, don’t scratch it off as nothing more than an idle fantasy just yet: You are most likely experiencing a more positive self-image than you had in the past, and finally feel like you are worthy of love. You might have been insecure or anxious about being in a relationship and are slowly -but steadily!- beginning to feel better about yourself.
This might also be a sign that your subconscious is picking up clues your crush is sending you. Perhaps you haven’t noticed yet, but they might be more interested in you that you know, and have been low-key flirting with you, in an attempt to build up their courage and finally ask you out. This dream might be your mind’s way of preparing you for this happy occasion!
Dreaming about Your Crush Dating Someone Else
This dream is a real bummer, and you might wake up feeling blue, but don’t begin mopping around just yet. This might be just a sign that you are feeling abandoned in real life and that people don’t have your back.
It might be a good idea to take a good look around and consider if those you love and care about don’t support and help you, or if this is simply your insecurities playing out. You might be feeling lonely and would benefit from asking to talk about stuff with your family and friends, so that you can be reassured of their support and love.
Most of the time, it’s simply our lack of confidence getting the best of us and not a real sign that something is wrong in the real world, so finding help is the best way of getting over your feelings of rejection and your sadness.
Dreaming about being Intimate with Your Crush
Though this might be a very sexy and lovely dream, it’s not the best of signs. You are most likely feeling lonely and left aside, and have been aching for the kind of intimacy you have been lacking lately. It’s not just sex you want, but the feeling of being close to someone, having a person you can trust and rely on at the end of the day.
So perhaps it’s time to finally put yourself out there and try and find that special someone. It might be time to declare your feelings for your crush. If they reject you, you can at least move one and look for someone else who’ll like you back. If they want to be with you, then it can be the beginning of something beautiful. Don’t let your insecurities get the best of you, since this is making you feel alone and vulnerable, and locking the world out for fear of rejection will only make you feel lonelier in the end.
Dreaming about Your Crush Starting An Argument with You
If you find yourself arguing or even fighting with your crush, then this symbolises an inner conflict you are currently going through. It’s a sign that you are dealing with stressful insecurities and don’t know how to work them out.
It’s a good moment to find some help, since you feel you can’t solve the issue on your own. Speaking to friends and family, or even a professional, can make you find new ways of dealing with your problems both in the short and long run.
It might also be a sign that you refuse to ask your crush out not because you fear they’ll reject you, but because you feel like the relationship won’t end well. You two might seem incompatible now, but you’ll never know for sure if you don’t take a chance and try it out for yourself!
