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 have been having good recurring dreams about my fiance. He is very depressed and has shut everyone completely out, including me. I thought good dreams bring good progress.

We do talk just about every day since are co-parent our my daughter that I adopted. I am do make sure that I foster their relationship so I make sure in my dealing that I am amicable and authentic at all cost. I just do not know why he’s in my thoughts and dreams. We have resolved everything as it relates to what was and we better person as friends but for life of me why is in my present dreams and thoughts.

  5. I keep dreaming about a person who used to be my housemate. The dreams are almost the same-that he likes me a lot. I see his face, smiling at me. When I wake up I have positive feelings about him and it takes time to forget. In real life we are not in contact with each other for more then a year. Nothing ever happen beetwen us so I don’t understand why I keep dreaming about him for almost 3 years. I am not sure what to do about it.

  8. Hi, only recently I have had a lot of dreams of my ex, I haven’t spoken to him for around 7 years. One time he was dressed in a white suit and cuddled me. Another dream I saw a fire ball hit the earth from the bedroom window so I called out to my daughter and she opened the front door to go have a look and my ex was standing at the door. He apologised for the past and said it was his fault, it seemed heartfelt, it made me happy to hear it. Other dreams of him lately are just everyday stuff, but thefe seem to be so many??? Thanks for any answers

  9. Since January, 2018 a new teacher has been introduced in our department who currently teaches me. I think I first dreamt about him in February and after that I’m dreaming about him everyday , it’s April now. I can’t seem to find a logic behind it. The dreams are very vivid and I remember them even after waking up. Other people in the dream change but he stays. Why so?

    • This dream is a reflection of your social and emotional connection with this person. Do not attempt to develop an unprofessional relationship with your teacher. There are a variety of social, professional, and potentially legal reasons for you to allow thoughts of this person to fade. If you find that you are no longer his student, then determine what you want for your future at that time. Have a great day, Anna!

  10. I keep dreaming about an close old crush/almost boyfriend from when I was 15. I also never knew why we stopped being friends when we were kids in high school, he just stopped talking to me one day. Little did I know that he just transitioned into a woman and identifies as transgender. I still dream of him as the boy that I really admired and liked and that he really loves me and I feel safe. Then I wake up and am annoyed because I don’t exactly feel the same way about my husband. My husband is great but there wasn’t the same infatuation and admiration when we met and got married that is so strong when you’re young, innocent, and it’s your first “puppy love.” I wish I felt more in love with my husband, I just have walls and am afraid of being hurt. It’s getting better and better but the closer I get to him and the more connected I feel, the more intense dreams of connection and security I have with my crush.

    • You are in a relationship with your husband. Allow thoughts of this other person to fade. Spend additional time with your current partner, as this will strengthen your relationship. Treat everyone in your life with kindness and compassion. Have a great day, Marie!

  11.

    • This dream is a reflection of your affair. Allow thoughts of this other person to fade. Determine what you want for the future of your current relationship. Speak directly and honestly with your partner about your actions, thoughts, and feelings. Give your partner and opportunity to share their thoughts and feelings with you as well. Have a great day, Kyle!

  12. I keep dreaming of the same woman that I have never met. Each time the dreams are different. However in all of them she is very loving and caring but there is some reason that we are not allowed to be together. She implores me to wait as things will change and work out so that we can be together. I feel completely at peace, loved and desired around her even though it seems that we can never be together.

    • This dream is likely a reflection of your desire to develop a new relationship or nourish a current one. It is possible that you feel this person is communicating with you. Allow this dream to influence you to treat everyone in your life with kindness and compassion. This will go along way when this person enters into your life. Have a great day, Dave!

  13. My ex has been in my dreams for a month. We are not on bad terms or anything but the strange part about my dreams is that he only shows up when I am talking to someone that has passed away.what could this mean?

    • The presence of your ex in your dream is a reflection of your previous emotional connection with him. It is possible that his presence near death is a sign that he is no longer in your life. Allow these dreams to fade. Treat everyone in your life with positive energy. This will benefit you during this time. Have a great day, Mioesha!

  15. I have dreamed my ex longtime crush. Well this type of dream of mine is weird its almost six day since i dream about him but the problem is we don’t really communicate each other and i really really forget him and i don’t have a feelings of him anymore.

  16. For the past year I have been having dreams about a friend I used to know. We haven’t seen or spoken to each other in seven years. I broke off contact with him because I had feelings for him, and couldn’t stand to see him flirting with other girls while I was in love with him.

    I also moved 3 hours away from my home town to be with my current partner, but ever since I’ve moved here I’ve been having vivid dreams about this old friend. The theme usually involves he and I being intimate, or me expressing my love to him, and him reciprocating.
    I love my current partner, and moving away was a big decision for me, so these dreams do not sit well with me. I thought moving on mentally and physically would cease the emotional stuff, but he’s clearly still in the back of my mind. How can I fully move on?

    • These dreams are reflections of your social and emotional connection with your friend. You are in a relationship, so you will find benefit in focusing your emotional energy on your current partner. Allow thoughts of other people to fade. Spend additional time with your current partner, as this will strengthen your relationship. Have a great day, Rocky!

    • This person may be a reflection of people in your life and your emotional connection with them. He may be someone that you feel as though you know. Your emotional connection in your waking life may be caused by your continued dreams of this person. Allow this dream to influence you to share your positive energy with the world. Have a great day, Baby!
