What Does It Mean to Dream About a Guy You’ve Never Met?

Dreams are strange creatures. Sometimes, you have an amazing dream of being in bed with a wonderful, gorgeous guy. In the next dream, you are running for your life as an attacker chases you along the streets. Figuring out how to interpret these dreams is not always easy. Even though dreams are a reflection of your subconscious mind, you might not always be aware of what is going on in your subconscious mind. When this happens, it takes a little extra effort to figure out what is going on in your dreams.

can you dream of someone you have never seen

We get this question regarding a number of dream situations. Some people see an unknown guy trying to attack them, or they just see an attractive stranger in their dream. In most cases, ladies want to know why the Mr. Right in their dreams is someone that they don’t know. There are many types of cases where an unknown stranger can appear in your dreams, but the most common one is in a romantic dream.

You May Not Have Mr. Right in Your Real Life

One of the most common reasons why Mr. Right is an unknown stranger in your dreams is because you don’t actually know who he is in your real life. You may want to have a romantic relationship or a sexual fling in your real life. Since you do not have someone to actually play that role in your waking life, your subconscious had to make someone up for your dream. Your mysterious stranger will most likely be replaced by a real person once you find the right guy in the real world.

i keep dreaming about a guy i've never met

You May Want Something Else

Some women dream about a mysterious stranger when they are in a relationship. This does not mean that you want to cheat. The more likely answer is that the stranger represents something that you want in your current relationship. If you have been dating your current partner for a long time, your subconscious may just be providing you with a chance to spice things up and have a no-guilt fling.

In other cases, your subconscious is trying to give you a quality or something else that you are missing in your real life. Perhaps you feel like your significant other never pays attention to you. Your dream guy may give you just the attention you need. In other cases, you may be angry that your significant other never helps out at home. In your dream, you suddenly have a significant other who supports you and helps around the house.

When someone is angry with their significant other, they are more likely to dream about a mysterious stranger in their dream. Your subconscious is basically looking for someone new who is less stressful for you to love. Basically, your mind is trying to give you a romantic vacation while you sleep.

Is the Guy My Soulmate?

Unfortunately, this is a very common myth. For some reason, people have a bad habit of believing that they will eventually meet and marry the person in their dreams. This is highly unlikely. Your subconscious chose the stranger to play the role of your soulmate, but this does not mean that they are actually your soulmate. The guy in your dreams might not even exist.

There are certainly some cases where you run into your dream guy in real life. This is not because you are prophetic though. Most of the people and images in your dreams are actually pulled from your memory. Consciously, you might not even remember seeing the guy. He may have been on the other side of the grocery store as you checked out. He could have been the car behind you on the roadway. Whatever the case, he was in your life enough for your subconscious to remember him, but not enough for your conscious mind to recall him.

Since there is a good chance that he is real (or at least a model in a television ad), then it is always possible that you will run into him in real life. Some people even make a move and try to date the dream guy because they feel like they are supposed to—and there’s nothing wrong with that. At the same time, you should keep in mind that your dream guy probably is not your intended soulmate and you should make romantic decisions on compatibility instead of dreams.

If you are still uncertain about why you dreamed about a guy you’ve never met, take some time to analyze your dream. Look at the exact events and situations that unfolded in your dream. There might be a symbolic element to your dream, or the guy may represent some trait or life change that you want to have. By taking a closer look at your dreams, you can figure out exactly why your dream is happening.

  1. I was 13-14 when I first dreamt of this guy. By the time I turned 18, dreams about him became frequent. I’m 20 now. He practically comes to my dreams every week or so. And it’s different scenarios everytime. One time I saw we were getting married. One time I saw we were in “the” act. One time I was crying hysterically bc of something he did/said and I woke up crying as well. One time he got shot, died and I killed myself too. These dreams may seem nonsensical to anybody if I told them but I need to stop dreaming these things. They are impacting my day-2-day life and I have become really different. I don’t like to talk to anybody (family or friends) and just like to sleep so I could avoid everyone. But then, I also don’t want to dream of this guy again. Its like he is at the bottom of a lake and he’s inviting me to come. He has that smug but satisfied smile and I wanna go but I’m dead scared. I resist him but still want to dream of him. Help me!

    • These dreams may be a reflections of your social and emotional influences. The person in your dreams may be someone from your distant past or your future. The associations of death of the bottom of the lake may be a sign that you should focus your energy elsewhere. You have stated that you wish to stop dreaming about this person. You are also aware that you do not talk to other people frequently. Allow this dream and knowledge to influence you to nourish other social relationships. Do this by spending time with your friends and family in person. Have a great day, Poorvika!

      • Your dream may be a reflection of your social and emotional desires. You may want someone in your life to take action and nourish a relationship with you. You want to feel comfortable and secure in a relationship. Determine what you want for your future. If there is someone in your life that you want to maintain a relationship with, then spend additional time with that person. Have a great day, Carla!

  3. Hi. I am reaching out because I had a dream that i was at church with my children and my deceased mom. We weee all very happy and singing. I saw my ex in the distance, as well as, a mystery guy looking my way. Then it switched to my fiance. He was arguing with me in his car. Then all of a sudden I’m in the backseat of the car with my children. i am trying to get out of the car but he keeps locking the doors and laughing. Then I see a taxi card with a lady’s name so I ask him about the card. He gets upset. The dream then switched to seeing my Dad sad at his home, alone. I can see him but I’m not there and I hear him say, I am so sad of being alone. Then I woke up.

    • Your dream was a reflection of the wide range of emotional and social relationships in your life. Your ex and the stranger may be appearances of the social relationships that are no longer available to you. You are engaged, so focus your emotional energy on your partner and children. If you feel unsafe in your current relationship, then determine what you want for your future. Honor the memory of your late mother by sharing your kindness and compassion with everyone in your life. Have a great day, Joy!

  5. This started happening last year where I would dream about this guy that I would start dating and we met at school and just fell for each other (it’s cliche). The dream would begin to happen more and more frequently. Anyways I did end up meeting him in person which is when the dreams stopped but we never really happened. Up until recently the dreams began again now I’m getting them every day but all I recall is a guy with dark hair and beautiful bright blue eyes. I’ve dreamt about that same person for numberous times. In the dream I’m always madly in love with him and so is he and eventually we end up getting married and having kids. It’s just always that exact same person over and over. I do recall how incredibly happy I am though.

    • Your dream is a reflection of your social and emotional influences and desires. It is possible that this person is from your distant past. He may manifest into your life in the future. It is possible that this person is an amalgamation of various people in your life. Allow this dream to guide you to share your kindness and compassion with everyone in your life. This will help to draw positive people and energy toward you. Have a great day, Kitty!

  6. I dreamed about this guy and we were in one of my classes, I’m a early edmajor and there arent many guys, I remember everything that happened. Even his name but this person doesn’t feel familiar to me.

    • This dream may be a reflection of your social and emotional desires. It is possible that you want to develop a relationship with him. He may also be a reflection of other people in your life. Determine what you want for your future. Speak with him about your thoughts and feelings. You may strengthen your relationship by spending additional time with him in person. Have a great day, Joanna!

  7. It’s weird for me because I dreamt of this guy I never ever saw or for me.he was not familiar.He came in my dreams about a year ago and he was only smiling in the dark and nothing else happened. At first I was thinking that it’s just another weird dream. But later on this year, He appeared more than once, 5 months ago…he was with a friend, I couldn’t see his face because he turn his back towards me from far away but I knew it was him straight away.He was walking away down the hall so I followed him by running but suddenly woke up sweating and didn’t even get to call him but was inches apart.And then 2 months after that I had another dream about him, he was in a swimming pool and he didn’t have any expression on his face but just stared at me and nothing else happened. Then last night I had a dream about him again, I was in my swimming pool and when I went under water, he suddenly appeared. He swam towards me and lock me in his embrace underwater and he suddenly kissed me when i wasn’t even ready for the kiss. Then when I woke up, I was just curious to the point where I had to search on internet to know what it means. I’m sort of attracted towards this mystery boy and I’m kind of obsessed with the dream about him and secondly I don’t know if I have a crush on this guy because i don’t even know him and don’t even know if he exist. The thing is…he is not my type, he had black hair and pale white skin.I wonder if this dream is just normal for all girls.

    • Your dreams are reflections of your social and emotional desires and connections. This type of dream is normal for all people. It is possible that he may appear in your future. He may be a reflection of someone who is currently in your life. Allow this dream to guide you to share your kindness and compassion with everyone in your life. This will help draw positive people and energy toward you. Have a great day, Jane!

    • Did you know everyone you see in your dreams you have seen in real life even if just a stranger You see in the street or a background character in a move you once watched as a kid you have seen them before in real life even if you don’t recognise them.

  8. I had this dream of this unknown man I met in a school,It seams like the dream skips around, one minute we in the school the next I’m at his place and then I meet his mother and the I’m cleaning up and the we are standing by a wall kissing passionately wh then I see swinging me in air and I have on a wedding dress what dose this mean

    • This dream may be a reflection of your social and emotional desires. The dream goes from an area that you are familiar with to his place. Meeting his mother may be a sign that you want to strengthen the relationship. The wedding dress may mean that you are interested in maintaining a life long relationship. Allow this dream to influence you to share your kindness and compassion at all times. This will help draw positive people and energy into your life. Have a great day, Tracie!

  9. I had this dream where my parents forced me to marry a stranger from my country. For some reason I was back at my old house where I grew up. My parents and I got into a huge fight I told them that they’re taking my freedom away they yelled even more at me and started to threaten me. I ran away down the stairs to the big window (It’s the same window where I played and spend most of my time when I was a child) I opened the window and started crying. Out of nowhere was this handsome man by my right side. He had a grey suit on and his briefcase rested on the window bench he had lightbrown short hair and I think hazel or lightbrown eyes. The moment I saw him I was very attracted to him. He looked at me for a while and said “Do you know what I am thinking right now?” I said instantly you’re flirting with me. He started laughing and said “no you’re wrong” he said “come here I want to show you something”. On the window bench was now a open notebook, everything was written in french. He said “write a sentence in french” and I did. I wrote “j’aime les anges” which means “I love angels” (this is weird because I am learning currently french, and second I was always fascinated by angels now even more cause I’ve been seeing repetitive numbers all over again since this summer) while I wrote that sentence I felt his eyes on me. When I was finished he just closed his notebook smiled and looked at me. Then I woke up. What could this weird dream possibly mean?

    • Your dream is a reflection of various influences in your life. Your love for angels and your desire to learn French manifested in this dream. It is also possible that you are interested in developing a new social or emotional relationship. You want your parents to be happy with your partner. Ensure that this dream guides you to share your kindness and compassion with everyone in your life. Have a great day, Jasmine!

  10. My dream I came downstairs and saw the back door was cracked open. I was home alone with the kids. I blamed my boyfriend for leaving the back door unlocked after walking the dog in the morning before leaving for work. I looked out the back door window and see a homeless man on my back porch and quickly tried to lock the door, afraid they would come in but relieved I locked the door in time. I went upstairs. Came back downstairs to find the man, and 2 other people standing in my living room. They had come in through the back door that I had just locked. So I guess it didn’t lock. I was slightly afraid, but not too afraid of them. Afraid enough to attempt to call 911 to report the break-in. I wasn’t scared of being harmed and they didn’t speak or threaten me. They just stood there. However, every time I called 911, it would not go through. I called over and over, and the call wouldn’t go through. One time it did, but a store clerk answered and said that their was something wrong with my cell phone service and the lines were crossed and they were getting lots of 911 calls in error. I was mad at one of my children for not dressing the younger child so that I could leave out the front door and escape the man/people breaking in. So I ran upstairs, locked myself in the bathroom and refused to come out until the police came to rescue me. Though I never reached 911. But that was my thought process and that I would not answer the locked bathroom door unless the police office said the code word: Butterfly. Rescue never came as I never reached 911. The thing that stood out about this dream was the man on the back porch and eventually came in. His hair was white, not grey or silver, but bright white, and long, and shiny. I can’t help but think this man has a significance in my dream, and his hair. I called these people homeless in the dream, but they were not dressed like homeless or dirty or anything.

    • Your dream may be a reflection of your fears and concerns. You may be concerned about your house being broken into. It is possible that you feel that you may not be able to rely on the police. Your decision to remain locked until help arrives was reasonable. The person at the end of your dream may be a reflection of a relationship between your spiritual beliefs and the homeless people of your dreams. Ensure that this dream guides you to share your kindness and compassion at all times. Have a great day, Renee!

  11. I had a headshot photo of myself that I wanted to be made into a painting and framed. So I went to a store, but they couldn’t do it. I befriended the sales clerk and found out she was someone who dated an ex of mine after me. I do not know this person in real life. My dream state made her up. Anyway, we befriended one another and left the store together to go to the bar/club and hang out. I was sitting at a booth and I kept checking the inside of my pocketbook because I had a baby wrapped up in my pocketbook. I kept checking on the baby to make sure it was ok and breathing since it was wrapped up in my pocketbook. I looked up, and a man (Jason Bateman, the actor played the man in my dream but he was just a man, not a celebrity in my dream). He walked up to the booth/table that I was sitting at with my new friends. He showed up to meet up with one of the guys. He walked up to the table. As he approached the table, I hummed to myself. Like…mmmmm, as in he looked good to me, and he was “the one”. He stared at me as he approached the table. He said hello to his friend at the table but was staring at me the entire time, and I heard him humm too, as he looked at me. We basically, fell in love instantly. Love at first site. He told me that I was so beautiful. He asked me how does a man such as himself get to see me again? When can he see me again? He kept saying I was beautiful and I told him he was handsome. I told him that he was the man of my dreams…and I giggled because it was as if I knew it was a dream. The man of my dreams literally in my dream…was my thought process. We were very much into one another and fell in love. I know it sounds weird but, I want to see him again…but it was just a dream, I know. I’m wondering what this dream means, and the man means, and also the humming. We both hummed when we saw each other.

    • In some manner, your dream was lucid. Part of you was aware that you were dreaming. This may mean that the man of your dreams is a reflection of someone that you may or may not know. The presence of an actor that you appreciate may have offered a level of trust and awareness. This dream should influence you to determine what you want for your future. Ensure that you share your kindness and compassion at all times. This will help draw positive people and energy into your life. Have a great day, Nikki!

  12. Ok so I meet this boy in my dreams he had brown/dark slightly curly hair he had blue eyes he was so cute, and I believe he recalled his name was Nathan, I have a cousin that look similar to him but why would I dream of my cousin and Nathan the mysterious guy in my dreams I am pretty sure we were dating I can’t remember though can someone help me?

    • This dream is a reflection of your social and emotional desires. His similarity to your cousin only means that you share a strong relationship with him. It is likely that you want to maintain a romantic relationship with someone in your life. Determine what you want for your future. You will draw positive people into your life by sharing your kindness and compassion at all times. Have a great day, Erin!

  13. I had a dream that as I was driving I saw a cery mysterious guy in car. He had the bad dark vibe that every teenager loves (i’m 19) he was in front of me and i saw him stop at a cafe. I wasn’t planning on goung there but I stopped anyways. I daw that he had some kind of rara tatto on bot of his ankles. He was tall, bearded and was a really good looking guy. Now as I try to remember his face is all blurry. Anyways I went up to him and we talked for a little bit and then I left. He was there with a guy. A couple of days later I got a message that he was looking for me and as I was about to reply someone kidnapped me. I woke up hanging on the outside of a brigde. I somehow managed to save myself from that and ran. Aw I was running the same guy caught me again and i said I want to meet him. Why are you here ? Let me meet him myself. I want to talk to him. I then saw myself walking downstairs to an underground restaurant. He was there sitting, waiting on me. As he saw me he walked towards me to give me a vert tight hug and it felt so real. We then sat down and ate and talked. Wel i was doing all the talking and he was listening. He seemed like a really good listener and I wanted to have that irl forever. I didn’t want to wake up from it. I got the feeling that he was in some kind of mafia bussines or something but that’s the kind of vibe i was getting from him at the moment. And then i woke up cause my alarm went off. What does this mean ??

    • Your dream may be a reflection of your social and emotional desires. You may be attracted to the dark vibe. You are aware that the vibe that you are attracted to often is a sign of criminal or harmful activity. You will find benefit in abstaining from consuming violent and dramatic media. Ensure that you share your kindness and compassion with everyone in your life. This will help draw positive people and energy toward you. Have a great day, Ranjeeta!

  14. I had a dream that I met a blonde boy at the pool of my compound, and what I felt was ethereal. I was just so in love with him, we were laughing and joking around like best friends who are also lovers. But I’ve never met them before, nor are blondes my type. Yet he made me feel so good I can’t even describe it in plain words. Then yesterday night I had a dream of the drummer of my favourite band, Queen and he was a blonde. But he didn’t have his usual high pitched, rock star-like voice nor did he have his British accent. Then I got a chance to look closely into his blue eyes and then I felt the same feeling as the dream before. I feel like that might be my soulmate pls explain this thx. (Side note, the drummer of Queen is obviously very hot but he was never my favourite, because again blondes are not my type.)
    Are these dreams trying to tell me that I will end up with someone who is not my usual type (and maybe just happens to be blonde)?
    School is starting and hopefully new people will come, and maybe he might be one of those new people??

    • This dream may have been a reflection of your social and emotional desires. There may have been a recent influence in your life which has made you think of blond hair. It is certainly possible that the person in your dream was a manifestation of someone that you may meet in the future. It may have also been a reflection of someone that you already know. Ensure that this dream guides you to share your kindness and compassion at all times. Have a great day, Asumi!
