If you really want to know how to respond to sweet dreams messages, just stay here because you can find it in this article.
One of the simplest ways to respond to “sweet dreams” text is “thanks, you too!” or “good night [name/nickname of the person you’re texting].” These replies work well in almost every situation.
There are other ways of “good night, sweet dream” replies, depending on your relationship and the tone and the atmosphere you and the other set for the conversations. To discover such cases, let’s read the rest of the article.
How To Reply To Good Night, Sweet Dreams, Or Have A Nice Dream
- Acceptable “You too” reply
If you want to have a simple response to the “good night sweer dreams” text, just use “you too.” As I mentioned, this is the acceptable and kind of friendly way to reply to such goodnight texts.
- Not replying
Besides, just reading and ignoring is also another acceptable way to reply to a ‘sweet dreams’ text. Some people use ‘good night’ or ‘sweet dreams’ as another way of saying ‘goodbye.’ So, if you are friends or even strangers to each other, not replying to such texts is okay.
- Using emojis, stickers, or gifs
Another way for ‘sweet dreams’ responses is to use emojis, stickers, or gifs. I often use the “sleeping” emojis and stickers to reply to my friends or my family when they say “good night” or “sweet dreams.” I think using emojis as a response is a cute way, so you can try it.
Flirty response to ‘sweet dreams’ and other goodnight texts
One of the best ways to have flirty responses is to use texts that evoke the other’s imagination. Here are some examples for you to send a flirty response to ‘sweet dreams’ texts:

- “Goodnights are better when I’m with you.”
- “I can’t sleep because I’m missing you.”
- “I will hug my pillow and pretend it’s you. Good night!”
- “Dream of me.”
- “I’ll be dreaming of you tonight ;)”
- “What kind of sweet dreams would it take to get you in my bed right now?”
What Is Another Way To Say Sweet Dreams?
If you don’t want to say “sweet dreams” to the other, you can use the following alternatives:

How To Respond To ‘Dream Of Me’
As “dream of me” is a way to say good night to your romantic partners, it often has a flirty meaning. So, if you two are not in a romantic relationship, it could mean that the other likes you and/or is flirting with you.
Besides, with that meaning sense, “dream of me” is not a suitable phrase to say to your family members that are not your spouse or with people you don’t know.
You can simply reply to their “dream of me” text with other goodnight text alternatives having friendly or flirty meanings or even ignore the text if you don’t want to reply.
Some friendly goodnight texts for you to use in this case:
- “Good night.”
- “Sleep tight.”
- “Sleep well.”
- “Night, talk to you later.”
- “Have a good sleep.”
And here are some examples of flirty responses you can use in this case:
- “Already imagined you’re in my arms/holding me in your arms.”
- “I can’t imagine myself with anyone else.”
- “Man, I wish I was with you right now… Good night :)”
- “Ok I will have a sweet dream of you tonight ;)”
- “Okay handsome guy/beautiful girl. I know you can’t fall asleep without me.”
- “I’ll be dreaming of your face!”
What does it mean when someone says you were in their dream?
There will be two situations here:
- If both of you are friends or best friends (without having a crush on each other), it means they are making jokes, or they did have a dream with you being a character in it.
- If one of you is the other’s crush, it means they are trying to flirt with you. This is also a sign showing that they like you if they did dream of you. When someone likes you and frequently thinks of you, it is easy for you to appear in their dreams.
To know suggestions for how to respond in such situations, you can see the next section.
How to respond when someone says they had a dream about you?
For this question, I would divide the answer into three cases, depending on your feelings and relationship with the other person.
- If you are curious and interested in it and/or both of you are friends
Okay, in this case, you can just go with your curious instinct and ask them what they had dreamt about, like, “Oh really? What was it about?”
Or you can make your response sound funnier, like: “Oh, is it a nightmare? Tell me, I can bare it! Don’t worry!”
- You have no interest in it, and both of you have just talked recently
But if you feel that the person speaking that sentence to you is just trying to flirt with you and you don’t want to know about it, you can reply, “Oh, cool, I hope that was not a nightmare,” with a cool tone and facial expression showing no interests about what they’ve said. And if they text you such messages but you have no interest in it, you can text them back “Oh OK” and leave it.
- Both of you are in romantic relationships or flirting with each other
When your partner text or say that they dreamed about you last night, for example, you can reply to them, “Baby, I dream of you every night” with a smile (emojis).
And if you are single and want to reply in a flirty way, you can type, “Oh, it must be a sweet dream. I had that sweet dream too,” and have an emoji with a “wink” or “heart” at the end of the text.
What does “sweet dreams” mean when a girl or guy says it?
“Sweet dreams” is just a pleasant phrase for saying good night to others. So, when a girl or a guy says/texts “sweet dreams” to you, it means that she/he wishes you have a pleasant dream filled with happiness. In other words, they are wishing you a good sleep.
When a guy says “sweet dreams,” what do you say back?
Simply, you just need to respond “thank you” and wish him a good sleep. You can reply with a cute tone or flirty tone if you want to. For example, “Night night, don’t let the bugs bite,” or “Dream of me, handsome.”
Is saying sweet dreams flirting?
It depends on the tone you set for the conversation.
“Sweet dreams” is a nice and friendly way to say good night to the other. It can be flirty if you add other texts behind it, such as their pet names or other flirting phrases. For example, “Sweet dreams, beautiful/handsome” or “Sweet dreams, wish I could sleep in your arms.”
