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.

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.

    • Sometimes, these things have a way of cementing themselves in your mind. You may have dreamed of him once, which made him a part of your memory so that you were later more likely to dream of him again. It is also possible that you saw or met someone like him, and he carried an unusual amount of weight in your subconscious mind.

  1. Sooo recently i dreamt about this one guy who was chassing me everywhere, cause he likes me alot and i was irritated by his action or u can say i wasnt ready for relationship also i like him but doesnt accept it. I even complained about him to ma parents and ma parents had a talk with him and after that he show me an apologetic face and mouthed “sorry” then…i dream about something else unrelated to him

    • The person in your dream may have been an amalgamation of various people from your past. Within the dream, you informed him that you did not want him to continue to pursue you. This caused the dream to focus from him. This could be a sign that you are not interested in maintaining a romantic relationship at this time. If you see this person in your waking life, then you may want to speak with him about your thoughts and feelings at that time. Have a great day, Rima!

  2. I have had this dream severally,different scenarios that am confused; we were just sitting outside after dinner when the sand shifted , he suddenly grasped my hand and he saved me .
    The second dream,he was chopping wood at the backyard with his dad assisting in storing them for it was winter.i brought them coffee and went back in the house.
    The third,he stopped me from leaving and asked me to take him to buy stuff,gave me some money for safe keeping.I took him to the store.

    • The first dream is an indication that you feel that you are interested in maintaining a relationship with someone that you can rely on. Your second dream is a sign that you want your partner to be someone who is supportive of your family. The third dream is a manifestation that you want a relationship based on mutual respect and financial security. Have a great day, Dee!

  3. Hi. This has been bothering me for a while. I usually dream about a man once in a while but this is the first time that I dreamt about a man that introduce himself to me. He said he’s named david. Not “dey-vid” but “da-vid”. He was with his sister when he visit me to get to know me, i forgot some but in my dream it seem like he did me some favor and he wants me to kiss him and i said no. But i saw a boar in our backyard and i ran to him and secretly kissed him on the lips when nobody’s looking. And then, he made a word puzzle and confess to me and he said that my answer should be in his puzzle. But he didn’t saw my answer because he turned ill and became blind.Then we went looking for a hospital. I woke up in between when dreaming but it continued when i fell asleep again. And it’s morning when I’m suffering from dysmenorrhea and fell asleep.

    I hope you can help me.
    ps. I’m a girl.

    • This dream seems to be an indication of your social and emotional desires. It is possible that the person in your dream may be from your distant past. It is also possible that he may appear in your life in the future. The word puzzle could be a sign that you enjoy intellectual games and puzzles. The make a decision about what you want for your future. Share your kindness and compassion at all times, as this will draw positive people and energy into your life. Have a great day, Aldine!

  4. Hi, I had a dream just today. I was at an event, my father is a caterer, he goes to numerous vending spots and I’m usually helping him with money, visitors, customers and such. So, I go downstairs, like a basement area, no one there and then someone comes up behind me. He’s a white guy, my age maybe older, he’s taller than me, he says we know each other but I can’t name who he is. He tells me we used to date but I don’t have a boyfriend and I only had one back in high school, I’m in college now, and he was a dark skinned boy. My family usually wants me to date or marry in my own race and I’m an African American, but that boy looked at me before taking my hand, smiling and I melted, he started pulling me over to the closet, or boiler room as people started coming downstairs. I hesitate, I still don’t know him but he’s so nice and familiar that I let him close the door behind us. He backed me up to the wall and he just started kissing down my neck, I liked it even though I’ve never had anything like this happen to me and I was wondering if I’d get a hickey and how I’d cover it up. He pulls away and I want to kiss him so bad as I turn around, we move to leave as he still has his hand around mine, my grandmother opens the door and gives me a suggestive look and I quickly blush and say we didn’t do anything. But, she’s not here for us, only to check the heating so she moves past us, accepting my answer. Me and the boy go upstairs and he talks to me, I’m only swooned further and I ask him if he wants to continue our conversation outside, I’m desperate to kiss him.
    I’ve never felt so conflicted before, now I’m wondering who is this boy, do I actually know him, will I meet him in the future?

    • The person who appeared in your dream may have been from your distant past, though it is possible that you do not remember him. You are aware of your family’s desires regarding the skin color of the people that you maintain relationships with, so it is up to you to either accept their desires or follow your own path. It is possible that this person will come into your life in the future. When you are an adult and no longer required to follow the instructions of your parents, you can choose to maintain a relationship with anyone that you want. Have a great day, Angie!

  5. So I’ve only seen this guy at a security job I had. I’ve seen him walk pass in the lobby and check in guests on a daily basis. I instantly had an attraction for him the first time I saw him. Tall dark handsome, About 265 pounds of all muscle and beauty, and a gentleman. I could never work up the nerve to say anything to him. I started dreaming about him every other night while I worked that job. Other than his Mother holding a conversation with me while I helped her carry some things when he moved out and him th Z making me for it, he hasn’t said anything to me or showed any sign of interest. I figured maybe because of my position as a security officer. Before I quit the job, I decided to copy down his phone number and email out of the computer, which was against the rules but I knew I wouldn’t be working there long anyhow. A few weeks after I quit, I emailed him expressing how I felt. How I was attracted to him and couldn’t stop thinking about him and thought he seemed like the perfect gentleman. Just basically expressing how amazing I thought he was. Long story short. I never recieved a response. So I sent another email apologizing and left it alone but for the pass three months I have been dreaming about him every other night and I am trying to forget him and its starting to make me depressed. If it’s not meant to be and he has never had any interest, why won’t my subconscious let go of him?

    • Your subconscious won’t let go of him because it doesn’t know if anything was possible. Your subconscious mind doesn’t even know if he read the email or remember that you are the woman who sent it. Because of this, your subconscious just can’t let it go because the entire incidence lacks closure. There is no way to know if he likes you or not from the way he acted–and the lack of response doesn’t necessarily mean he doesn’t like you or even got the message. If you happen to run into him again in real life, try talking to him and see how he responds. Good luck!

  6. I had a dream of being married to a guy .we were so in love with each other with 2-3 kids of our own. He was a gentleman with a very cool personality. But at the end, when I woke up he was someone whom I have ever seen or known. Totally, a complete stranger.

    • This dream is a representation of the kind of relationship and love you would like to have in your waking life. There might not be anyone to play this role in your waking life, so your subconscious mind created the kind of partner you would like to have.

  7. Hi! I always dream about this guy and he always asks me to stay with him. He knows I cook and asked me to cook without adding salt in it. This guy wears an old fashioned clothing and whenever I go, he is always there watching from a distance.

    • The guy in your dream almost seems like he is a fatherly figure. Perhaps you want a father figure in your life to give you advice and to appreciate you for who you are.

  8. I have had the same dream, only three times. One of them , I am with a guy I seem to know, in the dream. but I can’t see his face. The only thing that stands out, in all three dreams is his name. What we do together in each dream is different, but always fun. Why is the name always the same? Why is it the only part that really stands out, in the dream? What does A mans name mean, if used in all three dreams. I say it in two of the three dreams. It’s the same male name every time .

    • It depends on what the name is and if it has a special significance to you. The guy in your dream seems to be a placeholder for someone you’d like to meet. He doesn’t have a face because you haven’t found someone yet to play that role. To figure out what kind of person you want to meet or quality you need to have, you have to consider what else happened in the dream as well.

  9. I dreamt about a guy I’ve never met. We started dating and in my dream we went to an amusement park together and had a lot of fun. Later that night we are laying on a blanket looking up at the night sky and he asks me do you see my name in the clouds? I look and see where he points and sure enough I see his name in white whispy clouds. The name is Lex

    • The dream shows the kind of guy you would like to meet and the kind of date you would like to have. Sometimes, the subconscious creates dream people to play different roles when we don’t have anyone to play those roles in real life. It seems like this is probably a case of that happening, although you can always try to meet someone like your dream guy in the real world.

  10. I had a dream that I was sketching something on a sketchbook and next to me was a guy that I don’t know. After I finished sketching, we went shopping and bought some snacks at a mall. I don’t remember what happened but he was joking around and i was sulking. And I was like, “Iaaaannnnnnn!”. He comforted me right away. At the end of the dream, I knew that his name was Ian. Eugggg this dream sounds a little bit childish but could you tell me what is it mean?

    • The dream seems to show that you wish that you could find someone who shares the same interests as you do and who wants to do the same things as you do. You want a friend or a date who wants to hang out, relax and make you smile. Hopefully, someone like that will appear in your waking life soon!

  11. I keep having a dream is first starts out that my husband is cheating on me and I catch him and then I end up in a random place maybe like a circus? And there’s a bunch of snakes one snake is in a box from the others and is huge. I’m terrified of snakes and feel scared the whole time looking at them and then it switches over to me being somewhere else maybe like a party or an event but it kinda looks like church seats but it don’t feel like church bc everyone is partying including me and then someone tells me that his guy in the corner wants my number and I look up and do the call me thing with my had 🤙🏼 After that he approaches me he’s handsome in a uniform and I’m not sure if I want to be in another relationship again but he doesn’t give up and buys us tickets to a place in the Bahamas and included to get my hair and nails done for me and he tells me how beautiful I am and chases after me for my attention. It felt so easy and I was happy. After that I woke up.

    • It seems that your dream is a reflection of your social and emotional desires and influences. You may feel that your previous relationships have impacted the way that you navigate your current relationships. Make a decision about what you want for your future, and take appropriate action.

  12. I had a dream where I was put into an arranged marriage, but when we met it felt like instant sparks and we wanted to get married right there. He was so attractive to me. My side of the family wouldn’t allow it because my mother wanted the wedding to be a planned event. So we just went to theatre school together and talked about how we are both bad at theory lol (I’m 28…not going to school anymore). Then Miley Cyrus walks in asking if we want to go to Disney LOL. He said we should go to Tokyo Disney. I wasn’t done with a test, but he asked if he could go by himself. In waking life, I’ve had jealousy/ clinging issues but I felt trust in this relationship so I said go ahead without me. Dream me thought that was a big step and I didn’t experience any FOMO lol. All was fine, of course. He returned home and we spent many hours exploring, holding hands, giggling, kissing and cuddling. We couldn’t keep our hands of each other. He was bold, creative (an actor) romantic and very confident. We complimented the other on our talents/skills lol. He was tall with naturally tan skin and handsome in a unique boyish charm kind of way. We were also culturally different but it was exciting to learn about somebody else’s heritage. We both agreed we felt great about the relationship and we both felt loved by the other person. We were surprised how compatible we were. Towards the end of the dream people started ringing our doorbell at strange hours saying racist things about him and asking who he was. I defended him/ stood up for him then closed the door telling the strangers “He’s my soon to be husband and he’s an incredible person. Get out of here.” They left us uneasy but not surprised.

    Background: In my normal life I’m a recording artist and my significant other of three years is an audio engineer for many celebrities. We are also a duo music group and really hard workers living in NYC. He just started traveling a lot but now I enjoy the time alone. At first, I didn’t enjoy it at all! I hated putting a temporary pause on music. That being said, we’re happy and this third year has been really great. It feels like we’ve gotten over the hump of many of the issues we struggled before with. I’ve been able to learn who I am away from my career goals and I feel like I’ve grown softer and more open minded as a person. I’m definitely going through a big shift right now in my mind. We have plans to move in together within the year. My significant other is lovely but struggles with a lot of confidence issues. We think he might have walking depression. I love and adore him deeply, but sometimes I do miss the extroverted, confident artists I used to date. Wondering if this dream provided that escape for me? I assume the end part of my dream has to do with my political values? Maybe the current political climate? Being inclusive/ open minded is very important to me.

    • You are aware of the many potential reasons for this dream, and it seems that you are navigating your personal feelings and values. You are in a relationship, so you should make a decision about the future of your partnership based on your relationship with your partner, not a dream. Speak with your partner about your thoughts and feelings, and be certain to always remain respectful and mindful in your behaviors.

  13. I had a dream I met a guy in place that full of three we always met in a same place. The first time I met him is when I’m in grade 6 and now I’m grade 9. In that 4 years,we always met in a same place,then one day before I awake I said his name. His name is NATHAN. So after that I always find him I always search his name on Facebook even when I go somewhere I always find him. Then one day I dream again about him,a year 2018 I saw his eyes and his hand and he is a tall man. In his left eye his under eye there’s a mole and his left hand there’s a mole too. There so many signs that he is so real.
    -can you please tell me if Nathan si real and I think we had a same dream I think that he always find me I’m so very curious about Nathan at night I always pray for us that one day we met and we have a nice talk and a nice day.

    • It is possible that this person from your dream is real. He may appear in your life in the future. Share your kindness and compassion with everyone in your life, as this will draw positive people and energy toward you.

  14. I had a dream that I was at my sister house and it was some kind of gathering . I had sat down on this chair and the whole time during this gathering I never saw the man till I had turned around in my seat he sat behind me on the couch and he smirked waving his fingers at me , he was someone I found really attractive but I was confused cause I didn’t know who he was , he was fair skinned even though he was sitting i can tell he was way taller than me slim he had short curly hair I said a low “hi” with a smile so I won’t seem like I’m rude if I didn’t reply I had quickly got up from my seat and went into the kitchen where the rest of my family was ready to ask questions.

    • It is possible that you are interested in nourishing a new social or emotional relationship at this time. The person in your dream may be a reflection of various qualities that you find find attractive in a partner. Share your positive energy at all times, as this will draw positive people and energy toward you.

  15. I dreamt that I was sitting alone at this Italian place in my normal sort of dirty riding clothes and there was this guy sitting at a table with his friends. We made eye contact a couple of times and I thought he was attractive. Anyway, I leave later and I’m walking around the streets of some busy town and walk into a mall. I walk around for a while and ask the info lady where some shop is, she tells me and then said a guy was looking for me and she described him and it was the same guy from the restaurant. I ask her which direction he went and sbe ended up walking me to him. We got there and he’s with his friends talking and the first see the lady who then introduces me and me and the guy look at each other and we just hug smiling. He then takes me on a date i think to his house and we just end up cuddling on his couch watching movies.
    This is probably though just me wanting something like that and my subconscious giving it to me

    • I think your interpretation is probably right on point. You most likely want to meet someone or have a relationship like that, so your subconscious mind gave you a chance to have that experience in your dream.

  16. For about a month i have had recurring dreams where my husband will be there but i no longer have ANY feelings for him and i am with a different man. It’s never sexual with this unknown man just affection, desire and strong feelings. The unknown man is always someone different and never anyone I recognize. I wake up devastated and angry that I could possibly have feelings for anyone other than my husband even if it is just a dream.
    About 4 years ago my husband became such a workaholic that i started to loose feelings for him. I never saw him and felt like a single mom. One day I had enough and told him I was leaving. He quit his job, we went for counselling and we “started over.” I feel like lately he has been working a lot and I’m scared to loose feelings for him again. I love him to death, we’re really good together.
    Are my dreams happening because of my fears of reliving our past?

    • Your dreams are reflections of your previous emotional relationship with your husband. It seems that the two of you are working toward you future. Make a decision about what you want for your future, and speak with him about your thoughts and feelings.

  17. In my dream their was a guy. It seemed as if me and him had an connection. I remember stopping at a place to eat and ran into him, He told me that he had just gotten fired from some inspectors. I looked to the left of me and it looked as if my classmates were in formation ( academy ) and these inspectors were looking at the attire on my classmates. I remember running the opposite way to get dress for formation so that I didn’t get caught with him to save myself from getting fired lol. What doesn’t sit right with me is that I left a guy that was into me to go to formation …. like whatttt ?? Help please

    • You may be interested in nourishing a new social or emotional relationship, and this person may be a reflection of various qualities that you desire in a partner.

  18. Hi and today I had a strange dream I was at my school than I saw a attractive guy and he came closer to me and told me his name was Josh and he asked for my name and I told him my name,after that we started talking and then I started feel that when we talk my heart keeps pounding and then after he confessed to me that he liked me and asked me to be his girlfriend and in my dream I said yes to him and then I remembered that I was riding his car and the scenery keeps changing the second scenery was we were outside the school, the third scenery was at the prom
    But I never had met this guy
    What does my dream mean??

    • This person may have been an amalgamation of qualities that you may find attractive in a partner. It is possible that this person will come into your life in the future.

  19. I have this dream about this boy I never knew. At the first dream we were running, and then we sat in a garden. It was so sweet. He was holding my hand while he was drinking his coffee while me I was reading a book that time. I remember that he was mumbling something but then I couldn’t remember after that. While the second one is we were in a park. I was standing there in the middle of the park, while he was watching me from far but staring straight at me. But I just keep staring at the sky, I remember it was night (the sky was very beautiful but I can’t explain it too well. The park was very beautiful too.) then after that I couldn’t remember what happened next but after that I was shouting his name. I mean I didn’t shout because of angry or scared I was just shouting his name. Then I woke up, I still remember his name. I was shouting Noah. But even all the books I read, there’s no noah. Ever. I don’t even have a friend or schoolmate that named Noah. So I was curious, what’s the meaning of the dream?

    • This dream seems to be a manifestation of a strong emotional relationship that you may desire or could have had in your distant past. The person who appeared may have been an amalgamation of various qualities that you find attractive in a partner. Draw positive people and energy into your life by sharing your kindness and compassion at all times. If you meet a man by that name in the future, then speak with him about your thoughts and feelings.

  20. I kept having these dreams where me and this guy would do things, it would be hold hands, play video games, draw, and just be next to each other all that time. But his face was always glitching out. But there was no bad signs at all… The dreams only came around when i was having a bad day or something bad was gonna happen. Next thing i know i find this guy and now were dating. What were my dreams trying to tell me…

    • The experiences that you shared with this person in your dream seem to be positive. Your inability to see his face means that he may be a placeholder for someone else. It is possible that someone who shares similar attributes as this person may come into your life. If this happens, then you should nourish the relationship by spending time together in person.

  21. I don’t usually dream about guys, but lately dreams of a nice guys appeared. The first one I remember was I was older with a guy my age and at school. He stuck to my mind but then I had a different dream about another guy, but for some reason he seemed similar to the first guy but different. So far I’ve dreamt about 4 or 5 guys, completely different but always making me feel happy. The first dream when I woke up I was met with literally an unstoppable smile. Most of them were unrealistic and I cant see how this relates to my desires. I feel I am too young and naïve to have a relationship, I just feel it would be nice to have somebody like that, but nothing else. I think. The romantic dreams have stopped lately though, my life is too occupied with other things as of right now. I just want to understand why im having multiple dreams with different guys I don’t know. I cant even remember their faces, its blurry. I’m sorry if this was a burden.

    • The guys who appear in your dreams may be reflections of qualities that you find attractive in partners. You will draw positive people into your life by sharing your kindness and compassion at all times.

  22. I keep dreaming about this man I never met and feel like he is the one I should be with.I know he exist in real life we just never met. I read somewhere that I could be drawing him closer to me. I remember his face perfectly and even vision him when I’m awake. Can you give me a little more insight please, thanks.

    • Your subconscious mind is most likely creating a dream guy you would like to be with as a placeholder for the person you want to meet and be within your real life. While it is unlikely this guy actually exists in your waking life, your subconscious is probably telling you that you should find someone like him to be with.

    • Your subconscious mind is most likely creating these guys as a placeholder for the kind of guy you’d like to meet. Once you meet Mr. Right in real life, the guy in your dreams will most likely change and become your Mr. Right.
