Depending on the individual, dreaming about someone standing at your door could mean various things. In general, it could mean that you have some important news to share with this person or that you’re missing them and wish they were there with you. If the person is difficult to get along with, it may also indicate a feeling of stress or anxiety about dealing with this person.
It could mean some unexpected news if it’s a stranger you’ve never seen before. Whether it is positive or negative news depends on the context of the dream.
A dream about someone standing at your door may also represent your fear of being overwhelmed by someone else’s demands or expectations. The person standing at the door may symbolize those demands or expectations, and the door may represent your ability to shut them out. Alternatively, the person at the door may manifest your anxiety, a kind of self-criticism that you project onto someone demanding and critical.
If so, the door may represent your ability to shut this anxiety out of your life. Or the door may represent a barrier that you have put up between yourself and others, blocking intimacy and connection. If this is the case, the person at the door may be there to remind you that you are not alone and that you can let others in if you choose to do so.
Last but not least, it is essential to mention that this dream is very common among people (especially women) who have recently moved into a new apartment. Since they are alone in an apartment and in a new place where they have not lived, their thoughts of fear or worry are reflected in their dreams. If this is your case, I would suggest not looking for anything deeper into the meaning of this dream.
