What Does it Mean When You Dream About Someone?

By on September 22,2014

Dreams are mysterious.They open a realm of extreme curiosity and oddities that us as humans are always trying to decode.And when you throw certain people and events into the mix,dreams become all that more astonishing and questionable.What are these messages hidden in our dreams trying to tell us,anyways?If you're wondering what it MIGHT mean when you dream about someone,here's a few answers:


Dreaming About Someone:

Dreaming About Someone

There are many,many reasons why youmightbe dreaming about someone in particular.What is your subconscious mind trying to tell you?The simplest reason could be that you simply fell asleep while thinking about this certain person.It's only natural that you thought about them while you fell asleep,and they found their way inside of your sleep pattern.Another simple reason is that you've been thinking about this persona lot– maybe even more than you should be.They've been on your mind for quite some time throughout the day,so of course they'd be in your thoughts in your subconscious dreams as well.

On the other hand,your dream might not even be about this person.It may be something much deeper.For instance,you might be dreaming about certain qualities this person's personality: you are going through a stressful period in your life,and this person was a stressful impact in your life.Therefore,you're dreaming about this stressful individual as a result of what's going in your life at this moment.Your dream could also represent the relationship you had with someone.For example: maybe you had a very pleasant relationship with this individual,which may occur if you've entered into another great relationship with another person or you're simply at a peaceful time in your life.

Dreaming About Someone You Like:

Dreaming about someone you like

It's not uncommon to dream about someone you're interested in.After all,you're probably thinking about them heavily on and off throughout the day,so of course they're going to come into the realm of dreams.However,pay close attention to what happens IN the dream.For example: Did they like you back?This means that you are secure in yourself and have confidence.You may even have enough confidence to believe they like you back,which means you're ready to take the next step towards advancing the two of yours relationship.

On the other hand,if they didn't like you back,this could be a signal that you are unconfident and believe you will be rejected by this certain someone.

Dreaming About Someone You Love:

Dreaming about someone you love

When you dream about someone you are in love with,it's important to pay close attention to what happens in your dream.Dreaming about someone you love,more often than not,will show you how deep your love and passion is with this individual.For instance: if you're dream is nothing but happiness and joy,the two of you hand in hand on a romantic date,then it's fair to say you have a deep connection with your partner.On the other hand,if there's lots of fighting and instability,it could be a sign that you're losing the connection with this certain someone.If you're dreaming about your partner being with someone else,it could mean that you don't feel as passionate as you once did with this person.However,although this type of dream is sure to stir up some unhappy emotions,it's important to remember that it's just a dream- no matter how vivid it was.Look to find the root of why you dreamt your lover with another person and build from that.

Dreaming About Someone Who Has Passed:

Dreaming about someone who has passed

These dreams could either represent something very positive,or something negative.It all depends on what happened in the dream.For starters,a deceased person whom you were close to may visit you in a dream to offer you some comfort and closure.Did you have an issue with this person before they died?Maybe that issue was resolved at some point during your dream.Are you going through a rough patch in your life?Maybe this person has returned to give you some great comfort and give you some guidance on what you should do next.

There are some spiritual theories that suggest some deceased individuals will return to disclose the location and reason of their death to those closest to them.For example: was this individual found dead but the killer was never found?They may disclose to you who did it.Was their body never found?They may tell you where the body was hidden.Depending on circumstances,it might be an insight that needs to be followed up with authorities.

Dreaming About Someone in a Sexual Way:

Dreaming about someone in a sexual way

This type of dream,otherwise known to some individuals as "wet dreams"have an obvious reason: the individual is turned on to a certain extent and needs an outlet for their passions and desires.Now,it's important to know that having a sexual dream about someone in particular doesn't always mean you're attracted to or even want to engage in that behavior with said person.It's simply a way for sexual emotions to be outpoured and the person may vary.For example: just because you had a sexual dream involving your boss,doesn't mean you're sexually attracted or interested in him.You've been around him all day long,so of course he's on your mind to a certain extent.Your subconscious paired the two and left you with such a dream.(But of course,if you're dreaming about someone you're interested in it could very well mean that you're attracted to them and fulfilling your passion and relieving sexual tension through a dream).

Dreaming About Someone Famous:

Dreaming about someone famous

There's a couple of reasons why you might have a dream involving someone famous.The first most common interpretation is that you wish to better yourself or do what this individual is doing.For example: if you're dreaming about a football star on your favorite team,you might want to become a football player and try to make your way to the top (or simply play for fun).On the other hand,dreaming about someone famous is also a way for us to get over disappointments in our lives: something big happened that let you down,but dreaming about this famous somebody who's done something amazing gives us hope and happiness for the future.

Other Reasons You Might Dream About Someone

Other Reasons You Might Dream About Someone

Sometimes when you dream about someone- no matter who it is- it has absolutely no correlation to the actually individual.Sometimes these people are there to symbolize things you're feeling or things that are going on in your life.Sometimes these dreams are meant to help you see through problems,get over a bad experience,or bring you hope and joy.Never read too deep into the actual person- pay more attention to what is going on in the dream and how the dream made you felt.As we all know,dreams can be incredibly real sometimes- and sometimes that's exactly what we need to see through situations or feeling in our current lives.

What's the craziest,weirdest,or most wonderful dream you've had involving a certain someone?What do you think the dream meant,and how did it make you feel?

    I recently had a dream about a boy I had a crush on two years ago.The crazy thing is I haven't thought about him or seen him in years.In my dream,we were getting really close to one another.We kept leaning into one another and talking about our interests,lives,etc.Mind you I've never really interacted with him in person.I woke up and was thinking about how odd it was that I dreamt about him.Towards the end of the day,I went to my local dairy queen and saw him there!I guess I just want to know what this means

      You dream was a reflection of your previous social and emotional connection with him.It is possible that something reminded you of him.You dreamed about him,and then you saw him in person.Take this time to determine what you want for your future.If you want to nourish a relationship with him,then speak with him about your thoughts and feelings.Have a great day,Anna!

    I might have a little crush on this guy but tried to reconnect a friendship with him.We were kind of mates in earlier grades but never texted or really hang out.He started to ignore me with texting so I got tired.Me dream was he was asking for me and when he saw me he shouted my name.I stopped walking and we started to talk.He seemed worried and empathetic,which I thought was weird because I've never seen him that way.We continued our conversation and felt like he was one of my closest friend in the end of our conversation-which was when I woke up.

    Any thoughts on this?

      Your dream is a reflection of your social and emotional desires.You did not want to develop feelings for this person,though these feelings have developed.The conversation that he had with the other woman in your dream is a sign that you are aware that he may have other social or emotional relationships.Make a decision about what you want for your future.You will find great benefit in sharing your kindness and compassion at all times,as this will draw positive people and energy into your life.Have a great day,Anon!

    I once had a dream about someone who is in my school yet never talked to him but seen quite a few times and in my dream I flirted a little with him then he did as well.He then desperately wanted me and in my dream I said not right now because we were in a public place.He kept pushing me towards him and I laughed.This dream was oddly crazy.What might this mean?

    i had a dream where i was in a classroom (with younger grade than me) with my crush.we were flirting and my arm was loose and he was just playing with my hand and just lightly swinging my arm.i suddenly start to blush and i tell him that i like him.he smiled and looked at me so intensely.he was like "*my name* i have to tell you something"but then i woke up.
    i'm really intrigued in this stuff but i'm just not sure what it's about.
    (i also think this is a lucid dream cause i was able to somewhat control things and felt feelings in the dream)

    I had a dream of a recent deceased person.Not the dream I thought I would have.Disappointing,to say the least.This person came to my door intoxicated,and just nasty.I had to call 911 to get this person off my property.Later in the dream same person now w a pistol.
    Again,called 911.This person in my dream died in my dream.My meaning of the dream is how much this person didn't like me.Never doing anything personal to this person.I was not afraid to stand up for myself in the dream nor in real life.What are your thoughts?

    I had a dream that threw me back to the mid 1980's.I was going in a department store.My outfit was a clear indication of the mid 80's;a jean skirt is all I can remember,I was grabbing a carriage and proceeding in.Right at the front of the store was a guy shopping for something quick.He turned around and said"Hi and used my name".I said "Hi"back like I knew him and we were talking.The dream went into a another dream.This person and I did NOT KNOW each other then.The guy I dreamt of it is my current long term partner.He was wearing what he wears today,a T-Shirt and jeans,I recognized him immediately in my dream.What does this mean ?

    I had a dream i was walking down a school corridor with some friends that I don't really hang out that much in real life and in front there was a male leading us.

    next minute i know i was in this room sitting in a circle in a dark room,there were people i didn't know opposite me and they were doing this really weird ritual thing,i remember feeling scared and wanted to get out.The thing that made it creepier was that someone said they believe in a certain god existence type of thing (i dont remember clearly).me and a friend i was with went over to an unknown girl sitting on the floor saying that we are going to go first.the girl tried saying that she wants to go first but we went first anyway.we walked out along with some of my other friends and there were a few unknown people that went out too.

    It was a beautiful and sunny day outside and there were loads of people outside in small groups assuming looking for a car to leave the place too.I can't remember clearly if it was me telling my friend or my friend telling me that we should drop of at a random crowded place to change transports going home coz we should avoid letting those unknown girls knowing where we actually lived.my friend suddenly said she lost a key i went back a bit to pick up a key which wasn't the one she was looking for and i went to pick up another one which was also not the one,one of my other friend helped picking up a key and it was the one she was looking for.

    we were dropped of at a busy street and my friends boyfriend came to pick us up,i happen to be sitting in the front seat and my friend at the back she was eating because she was hungry.Some one was following us so we quickly drove up a road which passes under a big shopping mall.we managed to get the people following us out of sight and we hid at my friend's boyfriend's house.

    I stayed at the door to watch if the people were still following us,i looked out of the glass on the door to see there were several heads peeping out on either side of walls in a distance and slowly retreating behind the walls.but in the middle there was a young boy with black hair standing there holding on to a opened big blue umbrella above his head.

    I woke up after that.

    I really want to know how to interpret that because i can't seem to piece things together.

    Hi,I dreamed of someone,unknown.There were many people,like in a building and outside window view with a lake I think.Then this guy came to me and spoke to me,he made me feel comfortable because I wasn't.He shoved affection and caring towards me.Then suddenly like in a movie a picture changed,and I was in the farm,and in real life actually I work in a farm,so in dream suddenly I was also in the farm and I was doing something with my bicycle when tractors showed up from nowhere and started driving around me,I was terrified,it was dark,and tractors were driving so close,when the same person from before showed up also from nowhere and tried to calm me down,and was very caring and kind.and then from a hill round basketball sized stone rolled down and I looked at it and felt like it would roll on me,but I am not sure if the same guy pulled me away or me myself,but then I woke up.Why I had such a strange dream?Why those tractors were driving so close to me and I was so terrified looking all around scared?Why the same unknown guy was so nice to me almost like a guardian angel or protector or something and that stone at the end/ What all this could mean?

    Ok,so I have a customer that comes in once a week or once every two to three weeks.He came in three days in a row and finally saw me the third day and asked where I had been.He has always known I worked in the back.When he comes in he stares at me,even when his wife came in with him,he stood facing her but since he's taller…stared at me.I do work as a receptionist now.I had a dream about him the other night where he kissed me and some other stuff happened,but since then I haven't been able to look at him.Today he was standing at my desk and stared at me as I walked in.We are both married.What would that dream possibly mean?I know I wasn't thinking about him the day I dreamt about him.He flirts.I know he does by what he tells me,but we don't talk about anything but work.

        I forgot to tell you.I worked at this store back in 2013.(He was dating his future wife.) That's when I met him when I was attending him because I was working at the counter at the time.So,I was the person he came to.A year went on and I left to go somewhere else.Totally forgot about him.In 2016 I come back to this store,different owners now.Working in the back,I have to go up front to ask one of the guy something.Normally I don't pay attention to who they are helping.I'm talking to my coworker and I hear "*******,is that really you?!?He was so happy to see me and acted like he missed me.(Was now married after I left the store.) Talked about years ago when I saw him in a public place,asked me several times if I remembered that.He would just keep bringing it up.So,since I wrote you… He's been coming in a lot more now.Two Saturdays ago he was sitting on a stool,I got up to look outside and when I turned around he quickly turned back around on his stool to look away from me.(he almost fell).As soon as he walks in he looks over to my desk.Last Saturday he came in 10 minutes till closing,of course looked at me when he walked in.He was being helped while I was getting ready to leave the store.As I was leaving my desk I look over to say goodbye to my coworkers and he's staring at me.It kind of seems like he wants to talk to me/tell me something but like he's afraid to upset me or get me in trouble.I don't want to say anything to him because you never know what they are going to say.I'm happy to inform you,I have not had anymore dreams of him!I have been pushing my thoughts away from him.I do understand what you said before,but could I be feeling what he's feeling and we just both know we cannot act because we are both married?Could he possibly be having dreams about me also?

          Your experiences have shown that focusing your energy elsewhere will diminish your feelings for him.As you have followed these instructions,you are aware of the benefit of focusing on your partner instead of on this married person.Continue to abstain from communicating with him in a manner that may lead to unacceptable behaviors.Please share more of your experiences and insights in the future.Have a great day,Private!
