A Wish Fulfillment Dream

A common interpretation for dreams about a crush is that you are simply acting out a scenario that you want to happen. This is a wish-fulfillment dream because you are fulfilling your wish of being with your crush. Whether or not you have a real chance of being with your crush in real life is irrelevant, in your dream you are the only two people that matter.

Anytime you spend a lot of time thinking about someone or something, those thoughts will start to penetrate your subconscious mind. Once those feelings start to enter your subconscious, they will then start to make appearances in your dream. Your dreams about your crush will satisfy that internal desire that you have to be with that person. Even if you can’t be with them in real life, you can still see them in your dreams.

Now, whether or not your dreams will come true or not is a completely different story. The only way that you will end up with your crush in real life is if you are willing to put yourself out there.

It’s Time To Let Your Crush Know How You Feel

Sometimes dreaming about a crush may be your subconscious telling you that it is time to let that person know how you feel. Being able to speak your mind and get your thoughts off your chest, can often give you peace in mind.

Whether or not your crush shares the same feelings that you have is irrelevant. As long as you can let that person know how you feel, it will get that weight off your shoulders.

It is important to know that dreaming about your crush doesn’t mean you are meant to be with that person. It usually means that you have feelings for that person and should let them know how you feel.

Telling someone how you feel and asking them out, will put the ball on their court. If you are meant to be with that person it will work out, if not, then you can move on and find someone who shares the same feelings.

What If They Have A Girlfriend/Boyfriend Already?

If you dream about a crush who is already in a relationship, you shouldn’t try and act on any feelings. Do not try and get involved in someone else’s relationship and play the role of home wrecker. You wouldn’t want anyone doing it to you, so don’t do it to anyone else.

If you are truly meant to be with someone, then that person will break up eventually with their partner and you will be together. Sometimes you need to be at the right place and the right time for a relationship to work out.
