A little gist of the story of, author Okemaru’s Yumemiru Danshi wa Genjitsushugisha:

The story of Yumemiru Danshi anime begins with Wataru Sajou, a high school boy who is deeply in love with his classmate, Aika Natsukawa. To the point where he has daydreamed about both of them being together and continuously seeks her attention every day. But Wataru starts questioning this imaginary lovely-duo to be not right and begins to stay at a proper distance from her. What will happen next between these two? Only in the anime can unveil this.
