We have all, at some point in life, had very strange dreams that made us wonder what they could really mean. For example, dreaming of looking for someone. This dream can be interpreted in many ways, and therefore an individual who has such dreams should observe and analyze for himself which interpretation corresponds to his current life situation.
According to one theory, dreaming of looking for someone means that something is missing in your real life and you are trying to find that thing. The “thing” missing in your life could be love, peace, wealth, happiness, spiritual enlightenment, a way to solve the problem you are in, etc. In short, your search can be related to something physical, cerebral, emotional or even spiritual.
Analyze the relationships and situations you are currently facing. By doing this, you may be able to find a connection between this dream and your life. If you are finally able to find a connection and understand what you really want in life, then start striving to achieve the same.
Another theory says that if you dream that you are looking for someone you know, it can mean that you are afraid that your relationship with this particular person will disappear. The dream could mean that you are trying again, or wanting to, rebuild the intimacy and connection you once shared with that person.
An interpretation could mean that you want to instill or cultivate traits and qualities of the person in your dreams, in yourself. If this person is strong, individualistic and independent, you want the same attributes in yourself. If the person is a good friend, you probably yearn for that friendship and closeness in your life. If this person is your lover, you may be looking for love and intimacy.
The key to interpreting your dreams lies in how connected you feel to yourself, your feelings, your thoughts, and your inner voice. Ultimately, if this dream occurs repeatedly and you cannot analyze the reason yourself, consult a dream analyst or therapist. These professionals can help you interpret your dreams and also teach you ways to use them to improve your life and your relationships.
To dream that you are looking for someone and cannot find them may represent the awakening of the feelings of life on an aspect of his personality which no longer functions socially. Trying to figure out why certain behaviors or social skills are no longer helping you. Try to find out why someone is mad at you or if you are having unexpected bad luck. You wonder why you can't do something you're used to or trust anymore.
To dream of being wanted may reflect your fear that someone else will find out secret or personal information about you. Feeling that you can't hide anything from anyone.
