Have you ever dreamt that you got into a fight with a friend who you’re otherwise getting along great with? Or had a sex dream about someone who you don’t even find attractive in real life? If so, then you’ve probably wondered what it means when you dream about someone. While the meanings could be obvious, there’s usually more symbolism at play than we think — so dreaming about someone else can offer us lots of insight into our own subconscious.

While dreams about other people are interesting, it’s even more intriguing to consider what it means when someone dreams about you — because that can tell us a lot about the dreamer and what you represent to them. In dreams, most things (and people) are symbols for certain feelings, relationships, or situations from waking life. That said, appearing in someone’s dream could say less about you and more about the feelings or qualities that the dreamer associates with you. The same thing applies when analyzing what it means when you dream about someone else.

“Each dream someone has of you has many layers and can mean many different things, but one thing it can mean that this person is processing what they subconsciously feel about you and your relationship to each other,” mystical practitioner MaKayla McRae tells Bustle. “It can also represent the characteristics and qualities that a person identifies with you on, which helps in communicating with those parts of themselves.”

Next time someone tells you that you appeared in their dreamworld, get the details and do some dream interpretation work together. Read on to explore the different possibilities about what it means if you dream about someone, as well as what it means when someone dreams about you.

Dreaming Of Someone In A Negative Light

It’s always awkward to find that we showed up in someone’s dream in a negative way, or to dream of someone we know doing something cruel or acting badly. But that doesn’t necessarily mean that the dream-bully has a secret evil streak IRL. “Showing up in someone’s dream can [indicate] that this person is subconsciously trying to process their feelings toward you, so if someone dreams that you’re mean to them, it doesn’t usually mean that this person literally finds you rude,” McRae says. “They may actually be processing a fear of their own — perhaps a fear of your rejection.”

It’s important to look at the context of the dream and the relationship that the dreamer has with the person they’re dreaming about. “For example, if someone has a crush on you they may have a dream where they see you kissing someone else and laughing in their face,” McRae says. “This is because their hidden fear may [involve] you not returning their interest or being into someone else.

Dreaming Of Someone In A Positive Light

It’s always nice to have someone show up in our dreams in a positive way — and it’s sweet to hear when someone else has a good dream about us, too. Having a good dream about someone could simply be a reflection of our affectionate and positive feelings toward them. It could also indicate that the dreamer is processing something about their relationship with the person in their dream and coming to an optimistic conclusion about things.

“When someone has a positive dream of you, it can represent where they see you ideally — which may literally mean that they have overall happy emotions tied to you in your relationship to one another,” McRae says. “It can also represent that this person sees a lot of qualities about you that they can relate to.”

Being Upset Or Fighting With Someone In A Dream

Dreams about fighting with someone can be stressful — and hearing that someone dreamed they were upset with you doesn’t feel good, either. “When someone dreams that they’re fighting with you, it sometimes can represent real-life conflicts in your relationship,” McRae says. “Oftentimes though, this frustration is usually between the dreamer and themself, with [the person they’re fighting with] only representing a part of their psyche.”

Often, disagreements in dreams are more about inner-turmoil on the part of the dreamer as opposed to real-life negative feelings toward the person they’re upset with in a dream — so it’s important to analyze the personal symbolism involved with that particular relationship. “For example, if someone sees you as a courageous person, then starts arguing with you in a dream, this [may show that] this person wants to be as adventurous as they perceive you to be,” McRae says. “They are subconsciously arguing with themselves to be as brave hearted as you.”

Having A Sexy Dream About Someone

The meaning of sex dreams can vary wildly, so there’s no one-size-fits-all when it comes to interpreting them. Dreaming about hooking up with someone could be an obvious manifestation of our affectionate feelings or attraction to them, but it could also be more symbolic. Sex is about connection, intimacy, and energetic exchange, so having a sex dream about someone could mean that you’re trying to integrate some of the qualities that person represents into your own life.

The same is true of someone having a sex dream about you. “This dream could just represent one’s fantasies of wanting a friendship, relationship, or some sort of association with you receiving them warmly,” McRae says. While it certainly may indicate a crush or hidden desire to consummate your relationship, it could also mean they simply hope to meaningfully connect with you in a non-sexual way or more fully align with the qualities that you represent to them.

1. When you dream about someone are they thinking of you?

The idea that when you dream about somebody, they are dreaming about you is a common misconception.

This is actually a false assumption because your brain never stops making new connections, even when sleeping.

Of course, it can also be the case that when you dream about someone, they are often thinking about you, or even dreaming of you.

This phenomenon is called “dream telepathy” and has been extensively studied by scientists, who have not found any solid evidence that dream telepathy exists.

Some research suggests that when a person dreams about someone else in their sleep, they are actually dreaming about themselves.

Dreams are basically reflections of what someone has been doing or thinking about before sleep.

So in that sense, it is of course possible that the person dreaming about you is thinking about you.

But there is no evidence to suggest that this is something that happens often.

2. What does it mean when you dream about someone you hardly know?

Dreaming about people that we barely know can be very confusing and startling.

It is not uncommon to dream about people from our past whom we have forgotten about, or whom we never had a strong relationship with.

When you dream about someone you hardly know, it is a sign of a connection that you feel with them, even if you might not know why.

It could mean that you like the person, and that this person has a place in your life in some way.

It could also indicate that this person represents something to you that you are not fully aware of.

If there are people in your life who constantly show up in your dreams, then it could be because they play an important role in your life that you haven’t (yet) fully acknowledged.

Make time for yourself to think about these people, and what they might represent to you — why do you think they’re showing up in your dreams all of a sudden?

There are many cases of people even dreaming about someone they have never met.

For example, if you liked someone in your childhood and never got to meet them during that time, the dreams might represent the frustration from not being able to make contact with the person, or even your emotional attachment to them.

3. When you dream about someone, does that mean they miss you?

In a word, no. In fact, dreaming about someone is a common experience for many people.

A study found that 60% of people dream about someone they know, and 95% of those people dream about their current romantic partner at least once a month.

Dreams can also be deeply personal and may represent anxiety or insecurity that you are not consciously aware of.

When people dream about other people, it usually has more to do with the dreamer’s life, not the other person’s.

The dreamer may be concerned about the other person, and may be dreaming about them because of some emotional state they are in at the time.

Dreams are a product of our subconscious mind, and so dreams generally don’t really have any actual relevance to what is going on in other people’s waking lives.

However, sometimes there can be symbolic meaning that we can infer from the dream.

And because dreams are the product of our own subconscious thoughts and experiences, that means that when we dream about someone, it is not because they are thinking about us, but rather because we are subconsciously thinking about them.

4. What does it mean when you dream about someone all the time?

Dreams can be interpreted to provide insight into a person’s subconscious desires or fears. The person you dream about might be a part of your life that you need to be focusing on.

When we have dreams of certain people over and over again, it could signify that they are significant or important to us, but not in the ways that we would expect.

Dreaming about someone might represent a relationship with them in your life. The person might also be an aspect of yourself that you are struggling to understand or have not dealt with.

Dreams can help us understand ourselves better as they often reflect parts of our personality we are unaware of.

People generally dream about someone they have strong feelings for.

Thus, if you dream about a specific individual on a regular basis, it is likely that you have strong feelings for them.

It may be difficult to confront these feelings, but do your best not to let them consume you and cause distress.

5. What does it mean when you dream about someone your ex?

People dream about their exes for many reasons, but one of the most common is that they’re feeling conflicted or unresolved about the relationship.

Dreaming about an ex could mean that you want them back, or it could be a sign that you are ready to move on from them.

Dreaming about an ex can be a sign, for example, that you are at peace with the breakup.

It can also mean the opposite, namely that you are still pining for them, or that you are still attracted to them and you want to get back together with them.

The dreamer will often interpret their ex in a dream as a sign of their deep-rooted feelings for the person.

They may also be dreaming about what could have been if they had chosen to stay in the relationship or not chosen to break up with them.

It is important to note that not all dreams about an ex mean anything significant.

Dreaming about someone you used to like can show that you are trying to reconnect with that person. It may be that you have not learned how to let go and move on.

Dreaming about an ex is often a sign of unprocessed feelings or unresolved anger.

You may be dreaming about them because it is the only way you can communicate with them.

It is also possible that your dreams are providing a sense of closure to the relationship, which will allow you to heal and move on.

6. So how do I stop dreaming about my ex?

Many people experience nightmares about their ex, and this is especially true for those who have recently gone through a break-up.

The dreams are usually related to an unresolved event in the relationship, which could be anything from jealousy to the absence of closure.

No one likes to dream about their ex, not even if they’re happily in a relationship.

It’s just a waste of sleep and can keep you from enjoying the present.

The key to stop dreaming about your ex is to understand what triggered the nightmare and find a way to resolve it.

It could be as simple as getting closure or changing your perspective on the situation.

There are also other ways; for instance, you can write a letter or talk with someone about how you feel.

In concrete terms, the best way to stop dreaming about your ex is to get them off your mind by concentrating on other things before you fall asleep.

Give yourself something to do before bedtime: watch TV, read a book, make dinner, wash the dishes, listen to calming music, or take a bath and just let yourself relax before bed.

The key is to occupy your mind so it doesn’t wander to your ex.

Also, try getting some exercise during the day (but not too close to bedtime).

Research shows that this can help some people sleep better because it helps reduce stress and anxiety.

8. What does it mean if I keep dreaming about people from high school?

In the interpretation of dreams, high school is often seen as a new beginning.

In a high school setting, a new beginning is often met with trepidation.

If the previous day was a day of trouble, the dreams of that night may reflect that.

High school dreams may show a person trying to escape from themselves or their problems.

The dreams may also show someone who has made some mistakes and is trying to make up for them.

Common dream interpretations for why some people keep appearing in your dreams

Dreams are one of the most interesting parts of life. They happen while we sleep and can be very informative.

In some cases, they are a sign that something is going on in our lives that’s not being addressed.

Dreaming about someone may just be a reflection of your thoughts and feelings towards that person.

However, it could also be a sign or symbol of something else that is important in your life.

It is difficult to interpret exactly what dreams mean, but they are often symbolic of the situations in our lives that we struggle with the most.

It could also be an indicator of things we are thinking about in our waking hours.

Dreams can be about anything, sometimes even things we haven’t seen or experienced before in real life.

When you dream about someone, it is usually a reflection of how you feel about them in your waking life.

Your dream may be telling you to pay attention to that person in your waking life.

Your subconscious may be trying to connect the dots on something and needs your conscious mind to help them figure it out.

You might also want to take note of any recurring themes for clues on what might be going on in your life.

Why should you discuss these dreams with people you know well?

Your best friend has a knack for what your subconscious mind is trying to tell you.

They know you better than anyone and can tell what you’re going through without you even saying anything. If you have a problem or are having a terrible dream, just tell them about it and they’ll know what to do.

As for your co-worker, they’re less likely to be able to pick up on what’s bothering you.

They’re not as close to you and don’t have the same perspective on the many different ways that your mind works.

Every dream is a different story and can be analyzed by examining the symbols in the dream, the current situation in the dreamer’s life, and their family dynamics.

For example, a dream where a family member is disapproving of the dreamer’s current relationship may reflect the fear of disapproval from the family member.

This type of dream may also be an indication that the family member is feeling lonely or left out in the family.

Dream interpretation in general

Dreams are the result of your subconscious trying to process emotions and thoughts that you’ve had during the day.

Some psychologists often interpret dreams with a sort of symbolic language. These interpretations may differ from person to person, but there are some general themes you can expect.

Dreams can be analyzed using Freudian and Jungian psychology because they are representations of mental processes.

Dreams usually represent what we are feeling in the present or what we want in the future.

They also represent our hidden desires and our deepest fears.

The unconscious mind tries to make sense of everything that has happened during the day and it does this by responding with symbols and images from our everyday lives and experiences.

Some people believe that dreams are just stories created by the brain to help process information or make sense of experiences and feelings, while others say dreams have a significant meaning behind them.

A dream can be seen as a way for the subconscious to process information that it does not understand consciously.

Dreams allow us to work through our own experiences and emotions and the thoughts of others in a safe environment where everything is possible.

Dreams can also help you learn more about yourself, your personality traits, and your emotions, which you might not be aware of when awake.

There are many different theories about dream meanings and what they might represent.

For example, some people believe that dreams are the result of memories from daily life or a release of unconscious thoughts.

Sigmund Freud, for example, believed that dreams were a way of resolving conflicts in the dreamer’s mind.

He believed that most dreams were wish-fulfilling and typically involve satisfying needs, urges, or desires.

Others believe that dreams are forms of wish fulfillment.

The interpretation of dreams is an ancient and time-honored tradition.

One well-known school of thought holds that common dreams appear to be universally understood in similar ways by people from different backgrounds.

Such common dreams are often interpreted as symbols, or as warnings to the dreamer.

Dreams that deal with danger and fear, for example, might be interpreted as a warning to avoid such things in daily life.

The interpretation of dreams can vary depending on the person and the circumstances.

For example, in one person’s dream, their best friend may be a co-worker. In another person’s dream, their co-worker may be their best friend.

What does it mean when you dream about your crush?

Dreams about a crush can be interpreted in a variety of ways.

They may be wishful thinking or your subconscious trying to tell you something about the person you’re dreaming about.

One interpretation is that, as children, we are taught to admire love and affection from others.

When we dream of our crush, it may be that we are identifying with them in some way.

Perhaps they represent someone who is strong and confident, like a hero in a movie or book.

It’s been said that Freudian theory has been debunked because it doesn’t make any sense for people to dream about their crushes in order to fulfill a need or want.

But, it’s not so much about the person themselves as it is the unfulfilled need behind the dream.

Dreams about your crush might be a sign that you are feeling insecure.

When you dream of your crush, the interpretation can change from person to person.

For some, it might mean that they see them as a safe thing that they can depend on or it could symbolize a longing for someone that they have been separated from.

Enter the dream analysts

People who are trained in the art of interpreting dreams are called “dream experts.”

Also known as “dream analysts,” they are able to interpret the meaning of dreams by analyzing the symbols in the dream.

Professional dream analysts are trained to interpret the significance of dreams.

Dream experts have said that dreams are a way for the unconscious mind to process thoughts, feelings, and memories.

A dream is a visual representation of your thoughts and feelings, and the symbols in your dream are what your mind is trying to process in order to make sense of them.

This is why vivid dreams can be intense. For this reason, it’s important to analyze what a dream means because they often point to something the person needs.

Three of the most common dream terms

  1. REM sleep: The most restful stage of sleep, characterized by rapid eye movement, which is why it is often called “REM” sleep. When someone is dreaming in REM sleep, their eyes will move rapidly behind their eyelids.
  2. Vivid dreams: Dreams that are remembered. They happen when people are in the REM stage of sleep.
  3. Sleep cycle: A complete sleep cycle lasts about 90 minutes.

Conclusion: what does dreaming about someone really mean?

Dreams are an unusual phenomenon but they are also a great way to understand oneself. A dream is when the unconscious mind communicates with the conscious self.

It’s important to remember that it’s not always easy to figure out what your dreams mean and it can take time to decipher their meaning and intention.

It could also be a sign of a need. For example, if you are dreaming about an ex-boyfriend or girlfriend, you may be feeling a need for companionship or some type of emotional support.

It is generally accepted that dreaming about a person, place, or thing can be a sign that the person, place, or thing is significant in your life.

Dreams can offer clues to problems you’re currently facing.

Most importantly, though, dreams are symbolic representations of events in our waking lives.

In order to understand the meaning of a dream, it’s helpful to look at the context of the dream and how it relates to your waking life.

This can help you uncover their “hidden meaning.”

In conclusion, dreams can mean many different things.

For example, the dreamer may be curious about the person in their dream.

It’s important to understand the context of the dream before reading too much into it.

How to dream about someone

There is no right or wrong way to dream about someone.

Nonetheless, one of the best ways to dream about someone is to focus on them when you are awake, which will help you remember them in your dreams.

This could be as simple as having them on your mind while you’re at work.

Alternately, it could involve something much more intentional, such as writing a letter to them, imagining what you think they would say.

This kind of “intentional dreaming” is a form of lucid dreaming.

Lucid dreaming is a skill that enables you to be aware that you are dreaming while inside your dreams.

You can control what happens in your dreams, and experience anything that your imagination can come up with.

In other words, it is an experience in which you can consciously manipulate your dreams.

If you want to have lucid dreams, then there are certain things you can to do before going to bed.

Follow the 15 steps below, and hopefully your lucid dreaming adventures will soon begin

15 Simple Steps to Fantastic Lucid Dreaming

  • What is a Dream?

A person without a dream probably simply does not exist. From early childhood, we begin to dream. Some of us dream of new toys, some of us dream of becoming a superhero or just a cartoon character, some of us dream of growing up soon, some of us want to become an astronaut (or something else).

When a person grows up, his childhood dreams "grow up" with him. An adult already dreams of a promising job, creating his own family, traveling and much more. An adult, unlike a child, can make his dream a goal and achieve it. Of course, it happens that children carry their dream into adulthood and make it come true, but this is very rare. Yes, and adults do not all make their dreams come true. In many cases, dreams remain dreams. And why? Yes, because people are afraid. Someone is afraid of failure, for someone public opinion is more important (I will not start, because people will say ....), and someone is simply afraid that he will have nothing more to dream about.

So what is a dream? For some, this is a goal, having reached which, a person finds harmony with himself, and for others, this is the most secret desire that they keep in the depths of themselves and are afraid to let out. A dream is what a person thinks about when he closes his eyes.

A dream makes a person purposeful, makes you work on yourself, start, fail and start again. Moving towards his goal, a person works, makes mistakes, on which he learns, acquires a core. Not a single person has yet limited himself to one dream for life. Therefore, do not be afraid that you will live without dreams.

Having achieved one goal, a person becomes stronger morally, more self-confident. A person feels excitement, he has new dreams, and a thirst to bring them to life as soon as possible.

One should not be afraid of one's desires, especially one should not be afraid of public opinion. If you have a dream, do everything to make it a reality. Nobody can stop you from doing what you want. If you realize your dream, you will become the happiest person. Do not listen to those who will dissuade you, who will say "you will not succeed." Such people, on the contrary, should motivate you to take action. Prove to them that you can. Very often discouraged by those who, for whatever reason, could not fulfill their dream.

Therefore, you must do everything so that in the future you do not become someone's unnecessary "public opinion". Do everything to later support your loved ones in the fulfillment of their desires, so that you can prove to your children by your own example that you don’t need to listen to anyone but yourself.

After all, everyone chooses whether to live with one dream all his life or turn it into goals and turn a new dream into reality each time.

2nd option

What is a dream? Everybody knows. Have you dreamed? Yes, every day. I have a dream to become an astronaut. But it's so unattainable. That is why it is a dream. When you are 10 years old, or maybe 15, such dreams come to mind every time. You can imagine yourself as the president of the Russian Federation, a great artist, or maybe even immortal.

Everyone has a dream. It appears in your head and every time you imagine before going to bed. How wonderful it is to dream! And in an instant you began to lead a lot of people, you perform at a solo concert or your loved one is next to you.

Once I had a dream to be on a desert island. You wake up in the morning, and there is the sun, the beach, palm trees, various fruits, and there is silence around. The city is very noisy and there are a lot of cars. On the island, you can do whatever you want, whenever you want.

Then, when I was 15 years old, I had a dream to become a pilot. I saw photos of planes and pilots and admired them. I saw on their faces happiness, firm confidence, courage. After all, not everyone can become a pilot. To do this, you must go through many checks and trials.

If people didn't dream, there would be no such development now. Everything starts with a dream. When you dream, you visualize. And it helps to get desire. Everything seems simple. But it's not like that. In order to get your dream, you must act. Nothing is given just like that. If you want to be a straight A student, try hard.

A man without a dream is not a man. Dreams give you a sense of where you need to go. Dreams are like a compass. You can wander for years, but having a dream, it immediately becomes clear.

Having killed a dream in oneself, one can be very disappointed. You need to keep your dream alive. And then after a while you can find that everything came true.

A dream can be achievable or unattainable, one's own or imposed by someone. You need to know exactly what you really want. To do this, you will need time and resources. It may take years before you get what you want. And time, as we know, is the most valuable thing we have.

Whether you are an adult or a child, you can dream of anything. The dream has no boundaries. With them, you will always be one step ahead. They will motivate you to new achievements and really great things.

The dream is to listen and hear your heart. Don't think, but feel. This is the dream. What lies deep in your heart. They don't need to be looked for. Everything has its time.

Essay about dreams

How often do people give up their cherished desires and dreams, due to the fact that in the harsh reality it is simply impossible to realize half of them? In a huge number of works, writers showed how dreams and desires, their main and non-main characters were shattered.

A dream is exactly what a person sincerely wants to receive. And having achieved the fulfillment of this desire, a person acquires a sense of happiness. However, not always this happiness and joy can be enjoyed to the fullest.

Examples of the destruction of the dream of harsh reality

The protagonist of the work "The Overcoat", which was written by Nikolai Vasilievich Gogol, worked hard and hard for a very long time, saving on everything, just in order to buy a new overcoat. He dreamed about her, imagined what she would be like and how he would like to wear her. After Bashmachkin bought it, he felt like the happiest person in the world. But, unfortunately, he did not have time to get enough of the new overcoat, as he would like. The new overcoat was stolen the same evening, and no one helped the hero in his search. The harsh reality only gave a little "feast" on the new purchase. Because of this, the main character dies of an illness.

The second example can be observed in Alexander Nikolayevich Ostrovsky. The main character of the work "Thunderstorm" Katerina, faced with rude misunderstanding and contempt. E parents gave her complete freedom in actions, choices and in general in her life. When the heroine marries, she expects that her freedom of action will also be regarded as something normal and common for all people.

However, Katya is completely disappointed in family life, and only dreams of everything being the same as before. Her mother-in-law constantly humiliates her, finds fault and complains to all the neighbors about her. The husband completely indulges his mother.

Having fallen in love with another young man, Katerina decides to confess her feelings to her husband. Counting on understanding, she starts a conversation. But everything she said was used against her.

On the example of these two works, one can see how human anger, aggression and condemnation can affect a person's life. Unfortunately, even now one can observe examples of how dreams break into reality, and a person cannot do anything about it. Due to the fact that a person wanted something for a very long time and achieved it, but did not receive it in full, he begins to wind himself up, while blaming everyone and getting angry at everyone. Making it worse for himself in a moral state.

Variant 4

What do dreams and reality have in common?. An amazing question for me. One could imagine that the theme should be "The Difference Between Dreams" and Reality. But here - more interesting! It is usually said that a dream is very different from reality, which is why it breaks. But they also have something in common.

I think they can captivate people. The dream definitely captivates the one who created it! He can share it with others. So they tried to create, for example, communism. Shared dream inspired! And reality never ceases to inspire us. She is often so beautiful, interesting ... People admire her, write pictures, novels, travel a lot to see our whole world. Build ships and space rockets!

Dream and reality are definitely connected, as one wags the other. A dream can push people to action, to create something new, and this changes the world. But reality also affects dreams - he changes them. A person came up with something like this, but in reality, for many reasons, it doesn’t work that way, but a third option comes out. I think that almost always the third option turns out - not the dream itself, but its likeness, because reality influenced.

And dreams are not entirely divorced from reality. The dreamer takes something - pieces of life, an image of his success. The idea of ​​how it was and became after this invention. It really depends on the imagination of the author. If he presented everything completely in pink colors, then his dream will have to change a lot in order to be realized. Here the author may be disappointed!

But sometimes a dream has to be a little crazy. Then, in order to realize it, it will be necessary to change the conditions of reality. For example, it is only possible to grow something so new in space. Or on earth to create artificial weightlessness in some kind of greenhouse, then you can also make a dream come true. It is not necessary for a dream to always adapt, because then it ceases to be a dream, but turns into a reasonable plan - there is no flight! Sometimes you just need to relax and dream. Here I dream of becoming a singer, although there is no voice. But we don’t know everything, we can’t take everything into account. We do not understand everything in our world - there are still more questions than answers! What if in reality it turns out that I have a unique timbre, the voice will help to do it - you can learn to sing, I'm not talking about computer programs that draw out the voice. And now I'm a star! And if I rationally looked at everything, I would immediately refuse to check the timbre.

In general, different things, but they constantly influence each other.
