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.

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’ve had several dreams of this guy, who I’ve never met and don’t know in real life. Although in my dream I knew his name. (Gale peters)
    In my first dream he saved me from a fire, then after protected me from people who’d try to hurt me or make me upset.
    I saw him again in another dream, although I don’t remember much of this dream. I remember we were standing next to each other. He appears a lot in my dreams.

    • This dream may be a reflection of your desire to develop a new social or emotional relationship. The person in your dream may be an amalgamation of various people in your life. You are interested in maintaining a relationship with someone who makes you feel secure and happy. Share your kindness and compassion with the world, as this will bring positive people into your life. Have a great day, Eloise!

  2. Hi, i am an Indian lady. I dreamt about shopping at a store wearing a short dress. A random guy whom I do not recall meeting ever before, keeps meeting me on every aisle & says hi. I would politely respond. Later I get to know he’s the store owner. He attended to me at the counter & offered to drop me home. I took the offer as the bags were heavy but had not given my exact address. In the car he then tried to hug me saying.. ” I guess u know now that I love you” .. I pushed him off saying… ” stay away, I am married “.. He sarcastically asked ” married??? & your husband has no objection if you wear such short dresses”.. I replied saying “no” & got off the car with my bags. I could feel his stares at my back & left with a feeling that he will follow me.
    In reality, I have recently miscarried (this was my 1st pregnancy & we have been trying for some time now), our families from both sides have been very supportive & took great care of me. My husband also was with me throughout. Once i recovered, he had to leave the country for work. I did not want him to leave more on an emotional level, but he had to & expected me to think practically. I am fully recovered & am with my in laws now & once the doctor approves I shall travel to be with him.

    I had this dream when he had left for the airport.

    • Your dream is a reflection of your fears and concerns regarding his absence. You may feel that men may attempt to take advantage of you at this time. Abstain from behaving in a manner that will draw unwanted attention. Travel to be with your partner when you are able to do so. For now, reduce stress in your life and focus on healing your body. Have a great day, Kajal!
