Dreaming of falling in love with a stranger: What it means & why you’re dreaming it

They say that love is what makes the world go round.

We couldn’t imagine a world without love in it.

Of course, love looks different for each and every person.

This powerful and divine force isn’t something you can plan for or force into being.

So, what does it mean when your dreams are focused on love?

There are so many different forms of love out there. Love for your partner. Love for your family. Love for your friends…

Feeling something in a dream is a very emotional experience.

And it’s definitely something that is worth remembering and holding onto in your waking hours.

Being able to interpret those dreams and work out what they mean for you and your life is just as important.

Only you can truly interpret your dreams and understand what they mean in the context of your life. Here are some of the potential meanings of your dream, and what it might be for your waking life.

Dreaming of falling in love with a stranger

When most people dream about love, it’s usually about someone in their life they know of.

A partner.

A friend.

A celebrity.

A family member.

Being in love with a stranger often brings with it a completely different meaning. And it isn’t always about your love life.

Dreams are mysterious and we may never completely understand exactly what they mean. However, they often act as a reflection of your feelings and emotions in your waking life. You just have to take a long, deep look to extract the right meaning for you.

Check out the potential meanings of your dream, and why you’re having it.

Potential meanings of a dream where you fall in love with a stranger

1) Love could be on the horizon

If you’re single and find yourself dreaming about falling in love with a stranger, then take it as a good sign!

New love is exciting and full of hope, promise, and overwhelming emotion. If you experienced all of this (and possibly more) in your dream, then hold onto it as a glimmer of hope.

It’s highly likely that you’re about to meet someone with who you will fall in love. Or at the very least, you’re about to meet someone who you are going to spend some very enjoyable quality time with (whether or not love is on the cards).

This is someone who you have probably never met before (hence the stranger in your dream).

Keep an open mind in your waking life. You never know who might walk into it!

2) Ready for new love

If you’re in a relationship already, and dreaming about being in love with a stranger, then it says a lot about your current relationship and how you are feeling.

It’s possible that you’re not entirely satisfied with your current relationship and are on the hunt for something exciting and new. Something that is missing from your relationship. Dreaming of a stranger takes you back to the beginning of a relationship, where everything is unknown and exciting.

There’s the thrill of the chase.

You clearly miss that and want it back in your life.

And one way to be sure about these feelings you’re experiencing is to talk to a real psychic. They can give you more clarity on what’s missing in your life and what’s to come.

But how can you find a psychic you trust? In this day and age, it’s so important to stay away from fake ones.

I recently tried Psychic Source after going through a bad break up. They provided me with a unique insight into where my life was going, including who I was meant to be with.

I was actually blown away by how caring, compassionate and knowledgeable they were.

Not only will a genuine psychic tell you why you dream of falling in love with a stranger, but they can also reveal all your love possibilities.

3) You’re bored

Women often dream of falling in love with a stranger out of boredom in their current relationship.

As relationships progress out of those early stages of infatuation, it’s normal to miss that passion that came early on.

You don’t necessarily want to cheat on your partner, or even leave them for someone new.

It could be a simple case of your subconscious offering up a little taste of what things could be like. And that taster might be enough for you.

4) You’ve recently argued with your partner

Another reason you might be dreaming about someone you’ve never met is because of a recent argument you and your partner had.

No one likes arguing, but it is a very normal part of being in a relationship with someone.

Dreaming about falling in love with a stranger doesn’t mean you’re ready to leave the relationship.

Instead, it’s your subconscious way of escaping the stress and anger that comes through arguing to give yourself a bit of a break. Something we all need every now and then.

5) There’s something missing in your own life

This often has nothing to do with your current partner (if you even have one).

It has everything to do with what you’re going through in your life.

For example, you could be on a very difficult project at work, or going through a tough period with a friend or family member.

You feel alone and like no one is able to help you out.

As a result, your subconscious dreams up Mr. Perfect. Someone who understands exactly what you’re going through and is there for you through it all.

He offers the right support. He offers sympathy. He knows exactly what to say.

Have a think about what is going on in your waking life and whether or not the man from your dreams might be the one helping you out.

6) A surprise is coming

Another reason you might be dreaming about falling in love with a stranger is because a surprise is on its way to you.

This might have nothing to do with love at all or it might be that you’re about to meet your soulmate.

But how will you know if someone really is your soulmate?

While the universe will give you some telltale signs, I’ve just come across a new way that removes all the guesswork.

A professional psychic artist can draw a sketch of what your soulmate looks like.

This isn’t just any ordinary matching making or dating site. It’s a lot more fun than that…

Even though I was a bit skeptical at first, my friend convinced me to try it out a few weeks ago.

Now I know exactly what my soulmate looks like. The crazy part is it looks exactly like someone I used to dream of too. You don’t get a clearer sign than that.

If you want to know what your soulmate looks like too, get your own sketch drawn here.

7) You’re about to see another side to your partner

Sometimes we dream about falling in love with a stranger. But in reality, that stranger is actually our other half.

He comes across as a stranger in our dreams because he’s showing a side of himself that you don’t know.

It can act as a sign that you’re about to see this other side to your partner.

While it might seem like he’s a complete stranger, to begin with, it’s something to excite and strengthen your relationship.

8) You’re in need of something

If the stranger in your dream is professing their love for you, it could be a sign that there’s something in your life that’s missing – you just don’t know what.

As the confession of love is coming from a stranger, it suggests that this thing you’re missing is actually already in your life, you simply don’t know what it is.

Now’s the time to take a good hard look at your life to see what could be missing that’s right in front of your eyes.

9) You’re being insincere

Sometimes, dreaming about love has nothing to do with love.

One reason you might be dreaming about falling in love with a stranger is that you are being insincere in your own life.

You’re worried that those close to you will uncover this and see who you truly are. So, your subconscious creates a stranger who you can be yourself around without any of the daily worries that you face in life.

Will I meet this guy in real life?

This is a common question that many people ask when they’ve had a dream about a stranger. Of course, you want to know whether or not this person is going to come into your life. And if you might fall in love with them.

It’s normal to think he’s your soulmate.

But, that’s very rarely the case.

In most situations, it’s simply someone your subconscious has brought into being to help you through something in life.

He’s probably someone you saw in a magazine, on a billboard, or serving you at the supermarket, who you then formed a memory of.

Dream interpretation is a very personal experience that is so unique to each individual. It’s especially important to go through every single detail of your dream in order to work out what it really means for your waking life.

Why do you dream about falling in love?

Now you have a greater understanding of exactly what your dream is trying to tell you, you might be wondering why you had the dream in the first place.

Many cultures believe that dreams are an extension of our reality. They heal us spiritually. This is why most dreams have a deeper meaning that only you can interpret. After all, you’re the one who has the deepest understanding of your own life.

Always think about every little detail of your dream in the context of your life. It might help to shed some understanding. Let those emotions flow to truly unleash your thoughts and feelings and unveil why you might be dreaming these things.

Here are six reasons people dream about falling in love:

1) You’re not ready for love

One of the reasons you might dream about love is because you’re simply not ready for it. If you find that you dream about love, but there’s never another person and nothing ever happens in those dreams beyond the feeling, it suggests that love isn’t on the cards just yet.

2) Your love is one-sided

You can be close to someone in your life without actually being in love with them. Instead, you have dreams of love, lust, and excitement, feeling that person so close to you, yet also unreachable at the same time. This suggests a one-sided love is in the picture.

3) Love is on your mind

When love is on your mind, it’s only natural that you’re going to dream about it from time to time. You may have feelings for a particular person in your life, or simply be longing for love in any form.

4) Love is coming

Another reason we dream about love is as a sign that there will soon be love coming into our lives. If you’re dreaming about a total stranger and aren’t yet in a relationship, then this is a highly probable reason you’re having these dreams. Keep your eyes peeled for Mr. Right!

5) Your love life needs a chance

Finally, we also dream about love when we’re currently unfulfilled in our relationships. It acts as a warning that changes need to be made in order to get what we need from our other half.

Dreams about falling in love

Dreams about falling in love are very common and take on a number of different forms. Here are just some for you to consider:

  • Dreams of falling in love at first sight
  • Dreams of falling in love with your partner
  • Dreams of falling in love with a celebrity
  • Dreams of falling in love with an evil person
  • Dreams of falling in love with your friend
  • Dreams of falling in love with a ghost
  • Dreaming about an ex
  • Dreaming about saying “I love you”
  • Dreaming about kissing or making love to someone

Dreaming about falling in love can mean many different things, depending on where you are at in your love life.

Many people want to know whether or not their dream of love has any important significance.

The answer is yes.

You don’t just dream about falling in love for no reason at all. A dream is never a coincidence.

The best thing you can do is to try and remember the smaller details of the dream (often easier said and done).

Knowing these smaller details will help greatly when it comes to dream interpretation and ensuring you get the most accurate information possible, based solely on your own situation.
