What Does Kissing Represent in a Dream?
A dream about kissing can mean a lot of different things. It is usually symbolic of things such as passion, contentment, love, harmony, and peace. Let’s look at each of the possibilities one by one.
Symbolic of passion
A kiss is usually given when you are feeling passionate or romantic about someone. When you kiss in your dream, you may be feeling elated in your waking life.
This is a good thing. Try to recall more images of who you kissed or what you kissed in your dream, as well as how you kissed. These may all give you more insight as to the specifics of your feelings in your waking life.
Symbolic of fondness
You also kiss people you are fond of, people you care about, people you are acquainted with in some way. The deeper the relationship, the more automatic it is to kiss someone when you meet them.
Kissing in a dream may mean that you are experiencing a certain fondness for someone or something in your waking life.
This may be towards a certain person you’ve just met, or a person you’re looking at in a different way now, even though you’ve known each other for a long time. This may apply to both platonic and romantic relationships.
You may also be holding someone in high regard in your waking life. Maybe you are curious about this person and want to know more about his/her life, and want to be closer to him/her.
Symbolic of appreciation
A kiss may also be a sign of appreciation. There may be people in your life that you don’t really have much regard for, that you are seeing in a different way now.
Maybe you have taken for granted how they are able to give you certain things, or serve you in some way, and maybe you are realizing how important they actually are in your life.
This may invite you to open your eyes more to the good things in your life, and see that there is so much to appreciate.
Symbolic of contentment
A kiss may also mean that you are content with the life you are living right now, and you can’t really ask for anything more.
You are deeply satisfied with the situations you find yourself in, and the people you are dealing with. This is a great thing and you should be thankful for this fact, and give it much attention.
Symbolic of dissatisfaction
Sometimes, depending on the context of the dream, a kiss may also mean that you are dissatisfied with something in your life.
You may be craving more passion and vigor in your work, relationships both personal and professional, family situation, among others.
You may feel like you are going through the motions, and just want something to give you more energy and excitement in your current situation.
Symbolic of anxiety
There may be times that a kiss in a dream may be an anxiety-laden experience for you. If this is the case, you may feel like you are in a situation you really don’t want to be in, and you were somehow just forced into it and felt like you really didn’t have much choice in the matter.
You may have to reassess the things you say yes to in your waking life, and check to see if you can say no when that’s what you want to say in reality.
This is really to avert your resentment towards people and situations, and get more happiness and satisfaction in your life, as your dream is seemingly suggesting.
Symbolic of agreeing
You may have come to an important agreement with someone, or regarding something in your life that’s pretty significant.
A kiss is sort of the thing that seals the deal, and seeing this in your dream means you’re all set towards the decision you have taken and are excited about what is to happen soon.
Symbolic of change
In fairy tales, the kiss is what wakes the princess up, turns the frog into a prince, or heals the person who is ailing or dying or maybe already deceased.
A kiss in a dream may be symbolic of some sort of transformation, a big change in yourself or someone important to you.
Common Situations in Which You Dream About Kissing
Dream about kissing a person passionately
This dream may mean that you are wanting to be in a relationship with another person. This may mean that you already feel passion towards someone in your life, or are craving to feel it so that you may feel more alive and motivated again.
Dream of kissing someone on the forehead
When you dream of kissing someone on the forehead, this may symbolize a deep and all-encompassing acceptance of a certain person or situation in your life.
You may not necessarily like what is happening, or how a person is behaving, but you have come to terms with the reality and are able to wholeheartedly accept it for whatever it is.
This kind of kiss is more about setting yourself free from resentment or pain from the nonacceptance or resistance to it.
Dream of kissing a family member
This dream shows how much you care about a certain person. This may be a symbol of your deep fondness of that person, or your favoritism towards him or her.
It may also mean that you want to come to an agreement with this person, and are maybe finding it challenging in your waking life.
Dream of French-kissing someone
This dream may mean that you are craving for passion in your life. You may want to have a relationship with someone, or have more excitement for your work, or just feel more lively in general.
You should be able to find ways to do this constructively and not let the zest for life slip out of you.
Dream of kissing someone who isn’t single
This dream may mean that you just want to be in a relationship and feel the love that you observe from this person and their partner.
This doesn’t necessarily mean that you are interested in having a romantic relationship with the person you kissed.
It may be that you are a bit jealous of how their relationship seems to be going so well and you want the same for yourself.
Dream of kissing a stranger
This dream may mean that you want to be a bit more playful in your life. You want to see the magic more often, instead of just going through the motions and feeling like you have to drag your feet all the time.
The feeling of kissing someone for the first time is exciting and brings a lot of promise, and that may be what you are craving for at the moment.
Dream of kissing a family member
This dream may mean that you want to come to some sort of agreement with this person. It is possible that you are not seeing eye to eye recently, or that you miss this family member who may be a bit too busy to give you time and attention as of late.
This signifies your deep love and connection with them, something you would want to ignite again.
Dream of kissing someone you don’t particularly like
This dream may be symbolic of certain trust issues you may have with the person. It may also be telling you to be a bit more cautious in dealing with this person.
There may be a betrayal coming, and you can protect yourself by listening to your gut instinct and being more careful in what you say or how you choose to trust this person.
Dream of kissing your own romantic partner
This dream may mean that you are craving for more passion with them lately. You may be in a rough patch, or you may have been in a relationship with them for quite a long time, and you are wanting the fire that you used to feel when you were just starting.
This is a good reminder to spice things up a bit and not be afraid to express yourself when you are with your partner.
You should cultivate a safe space for reconnection and communication so that you can always feel satisfied and empowered in your relationship.
Dream of kissing someone on the hand
Just like how they do this with royalty, a dream of kissing someone on the hand means that you are regarding a person very highly.
You may have deep respect for this person and really crave for more attention from him or her, or possibly even want to be like him or her.
Dreams about kissing are usually pleasant and connote good things for your life, or your need for more passion and satisfaction.
Don’t be afraid to heed these signs and take action in order to get more of what you need and more of what will satisfy you in your life.
