    a daydream person?

    Do you native speakers say, "he is a daydream person"?
    What does it mean?

    What about a 'day dreamer'? Does it sound better?

    Thanks

    We would say, "He is a daydreamer." which means that he is someone who is lost in thought when he should, perhaps, be doing something else.

    1. You may say I'm a dreamer.

    2. You may say I'm a daydreamer.

    What's the difference between the two?

    Thanks

    They mean more or less the same.
