High school crush

Date: 3/8/2023

By Purple

In my dream, I was back in high school, but at my current adult age. I saw the guy who I had a crush on in the 8th grade. I finally approached him and told him I had a crush on him back then. (He went through puberty changes in the summer between 7th and 8th grades.) He said he knew, because I was frequently caught looking at him. That’s odd, because in real life, I was way too shy to look at him, let alone make eye contact.

AI generated interpretation Thank you for sharing your dream with me. Dreams can often represent our subconscious thoughts, desires, fears, and unresolved emotions. It seems like your dream revolves around your high school crush. Seeing someone from your past, especially someone you had feelings for, can often trigger nostalgic or reflective emotions. Your dream could be interpreted in two ways. One interpretation suggests that you may have unresolved feelings or curiosity towards this individual from high school. It is possible that you never acted on your crush, and now that you are an adult, you may be wondering "what if" or "what could have been" in regards to this person. Alternatively, your dream could represent a need for closure or resolution. Your high school crush may have been on your mind subconsciously, causing you to dream about them. The fact that you finally told him your feelings in the dream may indicate that you are seeking closure or resolution regarding your feelings towards this person. Regarding the discrepancy between your dream and real life, it is not uncommon for our dreams to contain elements that are different from reality. Dreams often incorporate our current emotions and thoughts, which can alter or distort the details of the dream. Overall, it is important to acknowledge any feelings or emotions that may have been brought up by this dream. Reflect on your own personal experiences and feelings, and consider whether or not any unresolved emotions or memories from the past are contributing to these dreams.
