What does it mean when you dream about someone you don’t know?

It often happens to us that we dream of different things, strange events or some common ones but it also usually happens to dream about people we don’t know and, even, we don’t know if they exist.

Dreaming of strange people is one of the most difficult to interpret, but it is linked to certain doubts. An example of this is finding a path we don’t know, and we don’t know whether to follow it or not, because we don’t know where it comes from. This point is related to the fact that we do not know where we are going in life.

Some of the most common interpretations are associated with seeing many strangers, which means that a good friend will help you.

Dreaming that you kiss a stranger represents the acceptance of the repressing aspects of yourself.

Dreaming of a stranger who pretends to be someone you know means that you know well who that person is but that he is not what the rest thinks he is.

If you dream that you have intimate relationships with someone you don’t know, it means that you want more passion and risks in your life, in addition to wanting to go in search of new emotions.

Dreaming of marriage among unknown people means that a member close to you will die.


Depending on how the dream has developed and the events you are currently having, they may have different interpretations. Thus, for example, to dream that a person wants to harm you (to dream of torture ) may suggest your fear and anguish in the face of problems that lie ahead. To dream that a stranger speaks to you and gives you advice is a reflection and pain for not having anyone to talk to.

Paternal figures and friendships are absent, or you think you can’t turn to them for advice. You have a terrible problem and a secret that you need to externalize, but you can’t find anyone to express it. Other common examples of dreams with strangers may be the following.


Dream of having sex with a stranger. It is a widespread dream in people. It usually reflects the desire and sexual appetite. Sexual fantasies come to light. 

To dream of kissing a stranger. This is another widespread dream among young people and teenagers who are discovering new ways of loving. Read more about dreaming about a kiss or dreaming about infidelity or cheating.

Dream about unknown according to your personality. The unknown represents your current character. Possibly you are going through a stage where you want to hide certain aspects of yourself. You are not honest or transparent with the people around you. You fear that they discover certain hidden secrets that you don’t want to bring to light.

  1. What does it mean when i call out a stranger’s name because im saving them? I had a dream that i was yelling “Anthony Tobald!”. he was ontop of my roof when a tornado was happening. I dont live where tornadoes are common nor do i personally know a Anthony Tobald.

  2. What does it mean when I dream that a stranger (who is in a relationship) is interested in me. In my dream I was spending the day with friends which I don’t recognize in real life. The stranger, who was a friend & in a relationship, kept showing interest in me while his partner(who was also a friend) was there. I can’t link this dream to any male friend I personally know because none of them are in a solid relationship, to my knowledge

  3. what does it mean when u have a dream of someone famous that you know but they don’t know you. in my dream i was walking somewhere by myself and i saw the celebrity and he looked at me in a way as if he liked and i gave him that same look. after that i went home and saw my aunt and my mom and the dude i saw earlier and he kissed me out of nowhere (in real life he’s in a relationship)

  4. I had a dream where I was heading out of the house (I don’t remember why, it felt like I was heading out to work or something) and I said bye Uncle to a man I’d never met before. He had a really striking look to him though, and his name was on the tip of my tongue but for some reason I couldn’t say it. I do remember him having short orangey-red hair.
