When you keep seeing the same person in your dream every day, it can be disconcerting at first. Initially, you might think that it is nothing, but then it happens again and again every night. Depending on how you view dreams, you may view this as a sign or nothing at all.

Does It Mean Anything If You Keep Seeing the Same Person in Your Dreams?

In some cases, it may mean nothing if you see the same person every night. At their most basic level, dreams are just electrical brain impulses that occur at random. Random images and thoughts are pulled out of your memories to construct a dream story. According to one theory, these random thoughts don’t even make a dream: you do. In this theory, humans create the dream story when they wake up as a way of making sense of their dreams.

Some psychologists do believe that dreams may indicate things. Since a dream is made by your subconscious mind, it could indicate your thoughts, feelings or desires. In many cases, a dream shows that you are focusing on something for one reason or another. If you keep dreaming about the same person every night, it may be because you are concerned about them or worried.

Often, you will dream about the things that you think about the most. Some people try to think about the same thing (like a crush) every night before they go to sleep because they want to dream about them. Even though you may have never dreamed or thought about the person before, you had a random dream with them in it. Because of this dream, you wake up thinking about them and continue thinking about the dream the next day. Because of these thoughts, you end up dreaming about them over and over again, even though they may not have been someone you ever really thought about that often.

What Do They Mean?

There may be a reason why that person came up in your dream initially. Think back to when they were in your life. What did they represent? Did you tend to feel safe, angry or happy around them? In some cases, the person represents a feeling that you want or had in your life. You may keep dreaming about them because your subconscious wants you to have that feeling again.

In other cases, the person represents a quality you want in your life. For example, imagine that you continue to dream about a former crush. You don’t like the crush or think about them anymore, but you keep having these dreams. In this scenario, your subconscious mind may have chosen that crush as a placeholder for someone you would like to meet. You may want a romance in your life or love and affection. Your subconscious chose the crush at random to fill this role because you do not have someone else in your life that could fill it.

You May Just See That Person a Lot

Dreams are pulled from your thoughts and memories, so you are more likely to dream about a place or a person that you encounter frequently. If you normally spend your day at school, many of your dreams will probably be located in a school or a school-like setting. If you see someone frequently, then they are more likely to be in your dreams. If this is the case, there is no reason to read too much into your dream because it may just be because of your daily life that it occurred.

According to noted psychologist Carl Jung, dreams are a window into the unconscious mind. In this theory, the dreams are a symbolic form of what is going on in the unconscious. If you are obsessing about something in your normal life, you may have dreams about the same topic. For example, if you are worried about getting fired or not being good at your job, you may dream about successful friends and feel envious about them. If you want to get a promotion, you may dream that your boss asks to talk to you.

What Should You Do If You See the Same Person in Your Dreams Every Day?

If you keep seeing the same person in your dreams every day, stop to think about how you see them. Do they represent a certain feeling or event? What happens in the dream? What was going on in your life when you originally met that person? Is there a normal time when you see that person in your dreams?

What If the Person Is a Stranger?

During your REM dreams, you will often see two or three different people in your dream. Up to half of these people may be unfamiliar to you. Sometimes, you will see the same stranger in your dreams over and over again. Statistically, strangers in a dream are more likely to be male and they are more likely to behave aggressively. Often, strangers in a dream turn out to be enemies or threatening characters.

If you keep seeing a threatening stranger in your dreams, you may be worried about something. Perhaps you feel like there is some threat to yourself or your family nearby. You may feel like you need to escape from that situation or person in real life, so you keep dreaming about a threatening stranger every night.

It is important to look at the situation that develops in the dream. A threatening stranger has a far different significance than a reoccurring dream about a kind grandmother. Look at what happens in the dream. Are you running from the person or greeting them openly? Do they bring you a message or protect your from harm? The circumstances of the dream and what happens are often just as important as who is in it. By looking at what occurs in your dream, you will be better able to interpret its true meaning. In the end, a dream’s meaning is what you decide it should be.

  1. I’ve been having repeated dreams where I keep meeting this man at his concert. I know but have never met him. (We live in different places. He is also in a k-pop group, kind of embarrassing) The first time I ran away from him because I was anxious. I dont know why because I’ve never met him. I should have no reason to feel that way. The next few times I always end up in front row, when he sees me he always gets off stage to come to see me and I always play with a necklace I have since I was little. Once he talked to me. Last time he danced with me and met up after. I might be looking for answers that don’t exist, but I wanted a more professional opinion.

    • Your dream is a reflection of your appreciation of this person’s talent. If this is someone that you know, then speak with him about your thoughts and feelings. If he is a celebrity that you do not know, then take this time to determine what is viable and appropriate. Ensure that you share your kindness and compassion at all times, as this will draw positive people and energy into your life. Have a great day, Daya!

  2. I keep having a dream where I’m bear this guy I went to schol with. We do talk. And he wants to hangout. But I’ve been to shy. But for like the past week hes all I dream about.

    • Go ahead and hang out with him! If he is asking to hang out with you, he is most likely interested in you! If you turn him down to hang out, he’ll think that you aren’t interested in him and he’ll stop asking eventually–you definitely don’t want that to happen. The dream is probably related to the new hope you feel. Whatever the case, go for it before its too late! Best of luck, Marie!

  3. I dream of the same girl I’ve never met her yet in my dreams she is my couple. Its weird I’ve framed her several times what can it mean if I’ve literally never met a female that resembles her in my life.

    • Often, the subconscious mind will make up imaginary people as a placeholder in a dream. This person just represents a relationship, experience or attribute that you would like to have in your waking life. Once you actually have a girl to play this role in your waking life, the dream girl will most likely be replaced by the real one.

  4. I’ll try to not make this really long, but during the past few months, I’ve had frequent dreams with my crush in them. Now, at first I really didn’t think anything weird out of it, just thought that it was probably my feelings taking control of what I wanted to dream but then, as I mentioned previously , these dreams with him in it started to get much more frequent and there would be times where I wouldn’t even be thinking about him and I would just have him in my dream. Something that all of these dreams have in common, apart from him being in them, is that they always have to do with him confessing his feelings towards me and sometimes there are bits and pieces that are shown in the dream that happen in real life, like this one time I had dreamt about him and in the dream he looked really sad, I remember I was trying to avoid him and was also treating him horribly and when he noticed the way I was treating him, he looked much more hurt which also pained me, before the dream ends he tells me that I won’t have to wait anymore but to be a bit more patient, that he would tell me, ofcourse I was confused and didn’t know what it meant. My friends have also told me in several occasions that they have dreamt with me and my crush and it’s either him and I getting married or him just confessing. I want to keep clear the fact that I haven’t spoken with him much ever since he moved back to my city but my friends actually think he likes me. I won’t make this even longer than it already is, but if you could please tell me what does all of this mean! I am just so confused, I would be forever grateful if you could help me!

    • Your dreams are reflections of your social and emotional desires in regards to your crush. It sounds like there may be some distance between the two of you. You should determine what you feel is viable and appropriate for the future of this relationship. Speak with him about your thoughts and feelings, and give him an opportunity to share himself with you as well. If you want to maintain a relationship with him, then nourish the relationship by spending additional time with him in person. Have a great day, Gabriella!

  5. I keep dreaming about a guy who I used to date but I’m married now. I stopped thinking about him altogether but now me and my husband are at odds I dream about his every night – about us dating , going out- talking on the phone , enjoying each other’s company.

    • Your dreams are manifestations of your previous emotional relationship with your ex. You are married, so allow thoughts of your ex to fade. If you think about your ex in the future, then focus your energy on your partner. If you are no longer satisfied in your current relationship and no longer want to maintain a relationship with your partner, then speak with him about your thoughts and feelings. Do not attempt to maintain a romantic relationship with someone else while you are with your partner. Have a great day, Kpop!

  6. I had dreams with my ex boyfriend for 2 nights now. It’s like we’re settling with something that we formally do. I’m currently in a relationship now. I feel anxious upon waking up because what happened in my dreams seemed to be real. I wanna tell this to my boyfriend, but I am afraid that he might feel unwell about this. What can I do? Can you give me some piece of advice? Thank you so much.

    • Your dreams are reflections of your previous emotional relationship with your ex. Your dream was not real. You are currently in a relationship, so allow thoughts of your ex to fade. Nourish your relationship with your partner by spending additional time together. Have a great day, Cris!

  7. I dream often about my childhood cousin crush. He broke my heart in 10 grade. I never thought of him afterwards but its been four years i keep seeing him. I dont want to. And i never think of him

    • Our first loves or crushes tend to remain in our hearts for the longest. In this particular case, the dream is most likely connected to all of the memories and thoughts you once had of him. Even though you no longer think about him, you still have thoughts of him in your subconscious mind, so it only makes sense that you would dream about him from time to time.

  8. I have dreamt about this person constantly for about 3 years now, I dreamt of him from the very beginning, before we started talking, I dreamt of him while we were dating for a short will and still dream of him now that he has moved away. the longest period i go without a dream about him is about 2 weeks. I don’t keep in contact with him, I haven’t heard from him in 9 months. Admittedly, I do think about him but I cannot understand how I still dream about him. He has moved on and moved away. I understand we will never be. I have tried everything but nothing seams to work. Sometimes I dream of him and I can still feel very very strong feelings in my dreams. And i dream of him with his partner and when I do, i feel anxious, emotional and scared. I’m losing my mind. I feel like this is absolute torture. Is there anything you can suggest

    • Your dreams are reflections of your previous emotional relationship with this person. Your statement seemed to indicate that he has a partner. If he is in a relationship, then allow thoughts of him to fade, and focus your emotional energy elsewhere. If he is single, then make a decision about what you think is viable and appropriate for the future of this relationship. Have a great day, Jas!

  9. Thank you for your sweet reply Admin

    Unfortunately, I think I will be plagued by this for a very very long time.
    I lose either way as there is no hope.

    Thank you

    • You have made the decision to choose to react in this manner. This is your choice. Since that is what you have decided to do, allow it to fade from your mind. Focus your emotional energy elsewhere. You will find great benefit in sharing your kindness and compassion with everyone in your life, as this will draw positive people and energy into your life. Have a great day, Jas!

  10. I am constantly having dreams about my ex-friend whom I proposed & she rejected. We stepped out of each other’s life & it’s nw over 6 months, haven’t even heard her voice. Her thoughts bothered me everynow & then, but eventually I came to stage where I just shrugged her thoughts and concentrated on something else. Everything was fine but from past 45 days she keeps coming in dreams frequently even though I don’t want her in my life now. For Past 2 days(I sleep bth in afternoon & night) she came Everytime I slept and she doesn’t speak in my dreams just stares at me.

    • These dreams are reflections of the strong emotional relationship that you once shared with this person. Your relationship changed, and the two of you decided to remove yourselves from each other. Allow these dreams to fade, and focus your emotional energy elsewhere. If the two of you see each other in the future, then speak with her about your thoughts and feelings at that time. Have a great day, Kumar!

  12. ok so i keep having this dream where i am dating this girl i have not met are seen ever in real life and it’s happened for 2 maybe 3 days straight don’t know depends on tonight but please tell me what this means and how to stop it

    • This dream is a reflection of your social and emotional desires. The person in your dream may be an amalgamation of various qualities that you find attractive in a partner. You want to stop having these dreams, so you will find benefit in focusing your emotional energy elsewhere if this dream occurs in the future, then address the person in your dream about their purpose. This will reduce the frequency of similar dreams from manifesting in the future. Have a great day, Tony!

  13. I keep having dreams of a former lover and although it ended of no fault of our own I still have strong feelings toward him. Whenever I dream about him I feel happy and am always laughing like I did when I was with him in real life and when I wake up I can’t stop thinking about him. Fond memories keep rushing back to me making me emotional in a good way. What does this mean though?

    • Your dream is a reflection of your previous emotional and social relationship. These positive dreams are indications that something in your life may have reminded you of the positive interactions that the two of you shared. Determine if this relationship is viable or not. Make a decision about what you want for your future. Regardless of your decision regarding the future of this relationship, you will find great benefit in sharing your kindness and compassion at all times. Have a great day, Ryl!

  14. My ex and I broke up three months ago he left while I was while I was at work.
    I never got a chance to ask why but after eight years of off years Of after off and on. He finally left,Don’t get me wrong I loved him and still do very much I blame myself for our arguments and the reason why he left.
    I know it’s a blessing in disguise but I have learned to forgive him and miss him so much but I know this
    is best. The last past three days I’ve dreamed about him last night was much more vivid.. I remember just being sad and disappointed. Two months ago I attempted to reach out to him but he ignored me, And it’s OK if she’s with someone I don’t want to know if he’s not with someone I still don’t wanna now the less I know the better.
    My heart is still broken but each day gets easier day by day I have a learn to fill all the gaps in my life now ,So I don’t have time to think about him but then I dreamt about him. I just remember waking up, feeling Satisfied and slightly happy to see him in my dream. In my dream he is begging me to come back and that he’s made a mistake.

    • Your dream is a reflection of your previous emotional relationship with your ex. The two of you are no longer maintaining a relationship together. You have a mature perceptive regarding the end of your relationship. Allow thoughts of him to fade. Determine what you want for your future without him, and focus your emotional energy elsewhere. You will find great benefit in sharing your kindness and compassion at all times. Have a great day, Spicy!

  15. I see a man every night, as if I know him deeply. I see him watching me and telling me that hes always here for me. When I am with him as if I know this person so well in the dream but in really I have no idea who this man could be plus I am marrie and I love my husband and am not thinking about someone else at all. Somehow it starts to bother me his presence in my dream is so intense that I feel i know this person

    • This person in your dream may have been someone from your distant past. There may have been someone who cared deeply for you. This is not likely an indication of a romantic relationship, and it is certain that you can take care of yourself physically. Nourish your relationship with your partner by spending additional time with him in person. Allow the positive energy from this dream to guide you to share your kindness and compassion at all times. Have a great day, Beat!

  16. I keep dream about this person who was my childhood it been 12 years since I last saw him and he keep getting on my dream I never think about that person what that supposed to mean 😂

    • This person may be a reflection of your social and emotional desires. It is possible that your interactions with him were positive, so these dreams may be guiding you in a beneficial direction. Share your kindness and compassion at all times, as this will draw positive people and energy into your life. Have a great day, Jmf!
