dream about

(redirected from dream of someone or something)

dream about (someone or something)

1. To fantasize about doing something. I've dreamed about being an astronaut since I was eight years old.
2. To envision something in one's sleep. While recovering from dental surgery, I actually dreamed about all the foods I couldn't eat. Waking up was quite a disappointment! What does it mean if you keep dreaming about the same thing every night?
