There is much to be said about interpreting dreams, as they can reveal layers of meanings which can only be found in the subconscious. Dreams about strangers can have many meanings, often in context with the rest of the theme of your dream and how you have been feeling of late. As a result they can be symbolic in completely different ways depending upon what your inner feelings are and what else you are thinking about.

Strangers can often be representative of your inner self. For example, if you are feeling sidelined, repressed or belittled, the loss of confidence can make you dream about strangers because it signifies how you perceive yourself at that moment in time. Conversely, the stranger could be a way of expressing a side of yourself with which you are not usually familiar; if you feel that you are having a change in values and personalities and are subconsciously aware of this it could come out in your dreams. Hence the actions of strangers can often be confusing and extreme, as they are bringing out depths of your personality which you may not have explored before.

On the other hand, a stranger can also feature in a dream as someone offering you insight or advice, as you imagine him or her as an impartial and unconnected source to those involved in the dilemmas which you may face. They offer you the solution that you have been looking for, which people who you do know may be unable to do, hence the need for a stranger to see the answers clearer.

Dreams about strangers are therefore intriguing and have no straightforward explanation. However, when you try to out them into the grander scheme of your current situation, they begin to make a lot more sense.

You could be having a precognitive dream about someone coming into your life. It might just be someone you meet in everyday circumstances. Start keeping a dream journal, writing down when you had the dream and as much as you can remember. I would need more details to give you a full interpretation of your dream.

I keep having different dreams but with the same guy. And I always see his back and never his face or if I do I never remember what he looks like. I just know that he is tall, fit, dark skinned,cute and nice. Plus in my dream I'm still in high school and so is he. I hope I meet this mystery man soon

I have dreamed about the same guy since I was around 5-7 I have seen him grow up,, and I feel we're soul mates,, this sounds really weird I know this,, but last time I dreamt about him he made a passing comment about not seeing me in a while I hadn't dreamt about him in ages,, then told me he would always find me and I feel that he will,, we're the same age and I know he lives in london,, wish I could find out if he was actually real or something I have dreamed up ''/

I have that same dream actually today I did it made me cry because in my dream I knew this person for very long and had fallen in love with him even though I'm 14 I have people tell me I'm to sophisticated other people tell me I'm 14 going on 21, but I think its my soulmate and one day ill find him also he was about 18-20 and very nice, I'm guessing the perfect man for me and before I woke up we were hugging and I started to cry and say "never leave me please don't" then I woke up and started crying drastically for someone I love only before I ever meet them true story

I went to this hotel and I met this guy while I was in the pool he started talking to me and flirting with me and he was so cute but he never told me his name and I might see him because I'm going to a hotel in Dallas in a month or two so I might see him there

I've never had a boyfriend, but my dreams created me a neighbor who was my boyfriend. He would take me out to dinner, where I met his parents. Lol not sure where that dream came from.

I have had this as well, it was extremely vivid, and I was writing out this person's name on paper. Its an old fashioned name, and I've never known anyone by it!
