Wondering what it really means when you dream about someone? Check out this article to find out whether it’s just a creative illusion or if it signifies a mystical connection.

Dreams about someone liking you usually symbolize something you’re avoiding in your current life. Let’s say you’re in a great relationship, but then you realize they want something more. You’d get upset and probably become depressed. You’re afraid of attachment and think you’ll quickly get bored of each other. It’ll take you a while to admit this to your partner, who will have already started to notice something’s off.

All Other Possible Meanings of the Dream Mean When Someone Likes You.

Probably Your Subconscious Showing Your Best Qualities

Loewenberg says that if you have a dream where someone likes you, it’s probably your subconscious showing your best qualities. If your crush compliments you, it’s probably because you feel good about those qualities.

Symbolize the Person You Are Attracted to Will Maintain a Distance From You

Having a dream in which someone likes you can symbolize that the person you are attracted to will maintain a distance from you, even if there are moments when it seems they might be interested or give you some attention.

A Reflection of Your Actual Feelings Toward Your Crush

Our crush is often in the back of our minds, and this desire to be with them sometimes manifests in dreams. So when we dream about our crush, it’s a reflection of our actual feelings towards them. To dream about an old crush is to reflect on our feelings during that stage of life.

Symbolic of the Love You Feel for Your Loved Ones

Dreams about the people we love usually are symbolic of the love we feel for them. If you dream about someone you love a lot, it might be time to ask yourself if you’re giving yourself and the other person the space to live your lives. Too much focus on one person to the point of obsession can lead to problems in both of your lives.

A Sign of Confidence and Optimism

When you dream about your crush, it’s a way for your subconscious to process what you want in real life. Do you want your crush to confess their love to you? Of course. But dreams about your crush can also be interpreted as a sign of confidence and optimism. So while you’re waiting for your crush to make a move, know that your dream is a reflection of your own self-worth and positive attitude. When you dream about your crush confessing to you, it could be a sign from your subconscious that you should take a chance and let them know your true feelings.

Symbolize a  Change in Your Life

Dreams involving your crush usually symbolize change. If they discover your feelings for them in your dream, it may mean that you’re due for a change in your life. It could be that you’re about to discover new things about yourself. Alternatively, it may simply reflect your anxieties about them learning how you feel. But more often, it signifies transitions and new realizations about life.
