What Does It Mean If I Keep Seeing the Same Person in My Dreams Every Day?


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. Hello!
    What does it mean when I dream about a guy who is a complete stranger to me, i remember him talking to me. He smile and as i look through it, i was talking with him too and i can’t make out what we’re talking about . As if we’re in relationship. More strange was we’re talking at living room.. at my house. Then i remember i walk him to his car that he parked outside the house. More weird, i had this dream when i was maybe like 10. Now I’m 18years old. I don’t even remember i had that dream until i dream about it again.

    Thank you for reading this and have a nice day!

    • Your dream is a reflection of your social and emotional desires. What the two of you shared in your dream is a manifestation of your desires. The age difference in your dream may be a sign that you are aware of the changes throughout your life. The repetition of this dream is a sign that you should look inward. Determine what you want for your future. Ensure that you share your kindness and compassion with everyone in your life. Have a great day, Sharifah!

  2. Dear admin, could you interpret my dream? Some background about my situation: a few years a go I was harassed sexually by my employer who was also my ex professor, but kept quiet about it, forgive him, and even form a friendship with him. During the friendship I often felt bullied, because he oftentimes made me feel worthless by commenting how I was incompetent & naive.
    I moved on to another job and interacted with a completely different group of friends, which kept me apart from him, but still dreaming about him almost every day.
    Last night I dreamed about him berating me and a few of his students for not remembering his birthday (in reality I do forgot to greeted him a happy birthday a few months a go). After that, he bullied me by ignoring me in front of a discussion group. I was feeling uneasy when suddenly the dream perspective shifted, and I was looking to the meek version of me. I told her to get up and go home, and remind me of the world outside of this discussion group. Nobody seemed to realised there was suddenly two me in the dream. Then I went home by taking a bus. One of his student chased me and persuaded to go back, but I ignored her. In the bus I struggled with a stranger-lady who tried to mugged me and succeed to subdued her. Then dream went on to another mini dream which I completely forgot.

    • This relationship was both abusive and neglectful. You decided to maintain a relationship. You are now out of that relationship, and you are aware that this relationship is unhealthy. You had a dream that was related to your experiences with him. This was a negative dream. Ensure that this dream guides you to allow thoughts of him to fade. Determine what you want for your future without him. Do not communicate with him. Have a great day, Dee!

  3. Dear Admin, can you interpret my dream? Ive been getting a lot of dreams about this one person. And that person is my ex. Here is some background story: so back in 6th grade we dated but it just dint work out and only lasted 1 week. Months passed and we were in 7th we started getting close again. We started talking as friends. And we just really really close. People even though we were dating again. Then we both went to a school dance together. Weird things happened. Like things I dint expect him doing too me. Like like we never hugged before. But on the dance he started hugging me at random points and holding my hand. Then after the dance we stop talking and stop hanging out together. Some months passed and now were starting to slowly talk again but he always be staring at me for no reason. Like I have almost all my classes with him I look at him and I catch him staring at me. And yeah I’ve started getting a lot of dreams of him and me. In those dreams I have we act like were a couple and i guess were dating in the dream. I dont now if that could mean anything? So A Admin can you interpret my dream please?

    • It sounds as though the two of you continue to nourish feelings for each other. His behaviors in your waking life may be indications of his feelings toward you. Your dreams are reflections of your feelings toward him. It seems as though you want to develop a relationship with him. Determine what you want for your future. Nourish this relationship by spending additional time with him in person. Have a great day, Meya!

  4. Hi
    I too get dreams of a guy who is really handsome as he’s an artist..I randomly followed his profile on Instagram and commented few times on his picture which was quite genuine…we never chatted and I don’t know why I always visualize myself with him as if I’m really close to him and I don’t understand why I feel as if I’m close to him …I’ve never seen him in my life and it’s just been a month that I’ve got to know him …I personally don’t think about him everytime but since the day I started following him I felt something different about him ..like I’ve known him for long and usually in the night I get dreams of him keeping friendship and slowly relationship. So , what can we conclude and what can I do for this person

    • These thoughts may be related to the discussion that you had with him. The dreams may also be signs of your knowledge of his social media. Perhaps you may be interested in developing a relationship with him. You may want to determine what you want for your future. If you want to maintain a relationship with him, then speak with him about your thoughts and feelings. Have a great day, Shia!

      • Thank you for your kind reply ,
        As mentioned in my previous comments that the guy is an artist by profession and I’ve texted him few days ago but he hasn’t replied yet and I’ve also noticed one thing about him , that he follows certain people but and like their posts as well but the all of a sudden you find him unfollowing them as well. Also , he talk to every woman who comments on his picture thanking them but a little close to me twice or thrice
        So , inorder to share my feelings with him even as a friend shall I wait for him or give him signals
        Please guide

        • You may want to share signals and attempt to reach out to him. Each person is different. It seems as though he focuses on someone for a time and then changes his mind. It is possible that this relationship will be best nourished by spending time with him in person. Decide if you believe that this relationship is viable. You likely will want to be direct and honest with him. Have a great day, Shia!

          • Challenging as though this seems because we stay in two different places but I completely believe in myself and I feel that things can change anytime and I too believe in miracles, but still I’ll try my best and rest is in the hands of the universe
