You may think that dreams are just a fun way to keep you entertained while you sleep, but that’s not really true. Sure, sometimes they’re fun and interesting and you wake up feeling like you watched a movie while sleeping, but they do have some meaning behind them.
The truth is, our dreams can tell us an awful lot about our deepest desires and how we’re really feeling about the situations in our real lives. Our subconscious has a way of constructing our dreams based on how we’re feeling when we’re awake in a really unique way for us to understand.
For example, dreams about your crush could mean totally different things than what you actually see in your dream. If you want to know just what it means when you dream about your crush, here it is.
Why You Dream About Your Crush
There are many reasons we dream about certain things in our lives but if you have a habit of dreaming about that special someone way more than you think you should be, here are a few reasons why. Knowing the why can definitely help you understand your own feelings about your crush better.
- You Think About Them During Waking Hours
Ultimately, the one thing that is consuming our mind – even our subconscious mind – during the day is the thing you’ll end up dreaming about. If you always think about them and picturing yourself with them during the day, they’ll usually show up in your dreams in one way or another.
- You’re Worried About/For Them
If you know that your crush is going through something difficult or you know they have something important coming up, you could be dreaming about them because you’re worried for them. Stress and worry are two things that manifest themselves most in our dreams so there’s a good chance this is a reason you’re dreaming about your crush a lot.
- You Don’t See Them Enough
If you’re always dying to see your crush and you just don’t see them nearly as often as you’d like to, you could end up dreaming about them to ease your subconscious mind. By seeing them in your dreams, your brain is basically feeding itself with that desire so you can be more satisfied during the waking hours of the day.
What it All Means
We’ve obviously established that your dreams are happening because of your immense feelings for this person, but what do the different types of dreams really mean? Each dream could have a different meaning about your crush and knowing what that is can help you solve the problems.
- Dreams Where You’re Together
If you have dreams where you and your crush are actually in a relationship, this is obviously because you desire it in real life. When you really, really want something, your mind will find a way to make it happen in your dream so you’re more satisfied when you can’t actually have them.
- Dreams Where You’re Mad at Them
If you’re always fighting or are mad at your crush in your dream, chances are you’re subconsciously angry at them in real life, too. Maybe you’re angry that they don’t notice you or they don’t like you back. Those feelings can come through in your dreams even if you don’t realize them in real life.
- Dreams Where They’re With Someone Else
If you dream that your crush is in a relationship with someone else and you’re always sad, this could be because you’re afraid they’ll be with someone else before you get to them or that they really are with someone already and it hurts you more than you think it does in real life. It could also be your mind’s way of telling you to get a move on before they’re gone!
What to do Next
So you’ve discovered why you’re dreaming about them and just what your specific dreams mean, but what do you actually do about those dreams? Well, here’s what you should do next when you keep dreaming about your crush.
- Tell Them How You Feel
This is the easiest way to make the dreams stop – at least the bad ones about your crush. If you actually tell your crush how you feel and get it off your chest, your subconscious mind will feel more at ease and can dream about other things during your sleep.
- Try to Get Them to Like You Back
A lot of your dreams probably stem from your subconscious being upset that your crush doesn’t notice you or like you back. You can remedy this by trying to get your crush to like you back so you’ll feel better about the situation. Sometimes your subconscious dreams about your crush as a way to encourage you to do just this! So make your dreams a reality and it’ll help with the dreams.
- Get Over Them
Sometimes there’s really nothing more you can do when your crush just isn’t interested in you. It really sucks, but if you keep holding onto them, you’ll keep having dream about them and that just hurts even more. If you really want to make the dreams about your crush stop, then you have to move on and get over them. Once your subconscious is fully over them, you’ll stop dreaming about them all the time.
- Think About Something Else More
When your mind is too busy thinking about other things, it’ll overpower the thoughts about your crush. So if you force yourself to think about other things all the time, you’ll more than likely stop dreaming about your crush all the time. Reading books, watching a ton of movies, and even just talking to new people can get your mind off your crush and onto different things to dream about.
Dreaming about your crush can be really difficult if you know you’ll never have a chance with them. If you keep dreaming about that special someone, this is what it means and what you can do about it.
