Dreams of Kissing Someone

You’re in the perfect place. Despite the pouring rain, you remained staring at each other. You don’t care about what others will say because you’re in your world. Slowly, inch by inch, you closed the distance between you. Eyes closed— lips locked— hearts racing.

Kissing someone in a dream can surely make you blush once you wake up. Generally, dreaming about kissing someone symbolizes love, optimism, admiration, and contentment. 

However, there are instances where a kiss foretells betrayal. That’s why it’s crucial to decode your dream if you’ve got a kiss of love or misfortune.

What Does It Mean To Kiss Someone in Your Dream?

According to Aunty Flo, kissing in dreams is symbolic of releasing your pain. A kiss can give you pleasure and relief. In your subconscious, a kiss is a medicine for your comfort.

Kissing in a dream can represent the intensity of your love, your acceptance of yourself, new adventures, and the positive things to come.

Conversely, a kiss can mirror emotional issues, life challenges, or a brewing betrayal against you.

It’s important to get a detail of your dream, especially its elements. This way, you’ll be able to interpret it clearly.
