Dream meaning: Man, Men

Man, MenThe meaning of a particular man, or men, in your dreams varies considerably with the setting, other characters, action, and any other apparent symbolic in the dream. If known to you, a male can refer directly to concerns or issues or feelings you have regarding him; or he could represent another, possibly new, man in your life with similar aspects that you may need to consider.

An unknown man and his actions can represent your ideal man if you are a woman; aspects of yourself, possibly inner resources such as assertiveness, fortunes, business acumen. A man’s behavior toward you can also highlight anxieties or feelings about that aspect of your behavior, possibly within a relationship, but not necessarily.

    Cryselle ~ Might this be a past life experience? Could be this man may be a “soul mate” or someone who comes back with you. That would explain why he is familiar to you. (?) Also you said it feels like a “memory”. Often this is how we start to remember past lives. Check out “Many Lives Many Masters by Brian L Weiss.

    I used to dream about a person that I could not at all see. I’m always small and toned in these dreams even though I’m huge now. I dreamed once no it was a couple of times that I heard his voice. It was deep husky yet sweet and surprisingly British. I was fourteen when I first heard his voice. I’m twenty -eight now. And I heard him say “Come to me and he was so enthralled by me.

    I saw this man with long black hair, about to his waist. I forgot what he wore but it was somewhat a robe or kimono..his face was pale and he looked older, he looked about four or five years older than me. He was always carrying a smile on him though, he looked calm and said he would protect me.

    There is a man that I have been talking with for about two months now. We have not met in person yet. I like him alot. The other morning. I dreamt him showing up at my work. We started kissing. Through the whole time he was with me at work thats all we would do kiss talk a little and kiss. Me the whole time at work was worried if they were going to tell me something. I had about an hour and a half of work time left and I realized that we spent most of my work time together. Then I woke up.

    one of the grownups was a reverened priest,whom i guess is most likely to be a catholic priest..what would this probably mean?

    I recently had a dream about an unknown man.When i woke up i was baffled it felt so real,i felt sad,desperate,anguish feelings of have loosing something so precious.I have jad dreams of him where i only see him in a blur his shadow.Yet yesterday i had been very sad and depressed .I didnt and dont understand why my love life has been treating me the way it has.I jad been crying because i wanted to see what i have been doing wrong.That night i had a dream,it felt like A memory .I was walking in a salon with a red carpet large ceiling like those of fancy places,the people around me walked dressed so elegantly,the ladies wore jewels and talked and smiled.This seemed so odd to me it was like the 1950’s ,i walked as if running away or hiding i felt like i was looking for someone.Then i felt a bump someone walked past me ,then i saw him the guys shadow that had been haunting me in my dreams.My response was to stop him I wanted to se his face,I reached up to him and slightly tapped his shoulder.He slightly turned looked at me and smiled my heart sank i felt and increadible amount of pIn as he continued walking.His hair dark blonde wirh small green eyes dressed in a suit went up some stairs.He stopped midway and looked back at me as i finally got to see this man he was young mid 20’s ,he signaled me to come with him i didnt move i felt as thoigh i couldnt follow becaise i felt as though something was watching me and i was avoiding something.He came down the stairs there was alot of people,elegant people,he touched my face and i saw him walking fast towards someone.I felt my heart sink deeper and deeper I kept on yelling no!stop!i ran after him following him.I remember in my dream i was crying.I think it was a conflict.I dont know.as i ran after him the place began to blur my world began to spin.I had woken up.I lay in bed thinking Bouy this dream

  • Frappe // Mar 3, 2014 at 4:15 am

    i saw this guy on my dream. he was so cute and handsome. he was anonymous. i don’t even know him, but in my dream, he was my boyfriend. and told me that he loves me.. :’)

  • Rabbit // Feb 17, 2014 at 11:10 am

    Ever since I was a little girl I’ve been having dreams of a man–tall, pale-skinned, blue-eyed, and blond haired. Even though i know he has blue eyes, i’ve never seen his face, or maybe dont remember it. The dreams are always different, but he never changes, except for his hair-it gets longer.

    In most of the dreams, he’s trying to kill me, or he’s murdering members of my family. However, lately he’s not been trying to kill me, he’s leading me somewhere. The latest dream had us walking down a long stone road. My brain told me we were somewhere in Europe, but I don’t know where… I’ve never been outside of the United States, and “Europe” is a little vague, isn’t it?

    I don’t know who he could possibly be, but in the dreams I love him, yet I don’t trust him a bit. Probably because he usually ends up coming after me with a gun.

    A dear teacher of mine suggested that this man is someone I will meet one day, someone that going to change me in a big way (hence the ‘killing’)

    I hope I meet him soon. His dreams leave me exhausted and worried for weeks after. I just want to smack him for stressing me out so much.

    Today,I dream about MYSTERY MAN, I asked him with smiling face ” what are you doing” he look at me and smile,I saw his skin glowing ..He was laying down on the white sheet bed doing his stuff, and I try to go near him.. my dream vanished and I been awake.. strange…

  • Preans // Jun 25, 2013 at 4:45 am

    I had this really vague dream and there was a man that I had never seen before. We were in a room and in that room, there was this large rectangular window. From that window, the sun shone so majestically that it felt like heaven. Then, he took me into his arms and he looked into my eyes and whispered something but I couldn’t hear it because there were people around us who were preoccupied with their own things. He gently pecked me on my lips and proceeded with a long passionate kiss. It didn’t feel like he was forcing it on me. As I gasped for air, his face started to blur and I was lying on my bed. My heart was racing and thumping, all I could think of was the mystery man. It was all too real to be make-believe but dreams are never real. This was the first and the last time I had a dream of a kiss with an unknown man.

    In my dream, I always wake up in the morning inside a penthouse with a man wearing a polo. Every morning I could not remember why I was in his house. I apologize and there was a time a subordinate of this man, probably his secretary, showed me the whole place. But I can see him outside the penthouse but he doesn’t talk to me. We can only talk inside his penthouse but whenever I would say I don’t remember him or anything that has happened or why I was even there, he would smile sadly. He’s a handsome man and probably 5 years older or so. And he has a wife and a baby but he is not the father. He talks about his affair with his infuriating wife openly but he was talking about me– the girl who can’t remember when she wakes up in the morning. And there was a time when I woke up with nothing else on but a bed sheet and I even asked him if I could take a shower and my shampoo was Dove. ^^,

Then i woke up.

  • Amber // May 12, 2012 at 7:51 am

    I dreamt I was a fugitive on the run. I can not remember clearly why, but in the beginning there were two people who were also on the run. One was a girl, my childhood best friend who I no longer really know very much and a friend from a few years ago. The scenery was so interesting. I think we were in an airport at first. The two other people decided they wanted to turn themselves in and they did…leaving me to flee on my own. I had just a a couple hundred dollars and a photo of my parents and two sisters. As I was running (and for good) a tall, thin, white, blonde haired man (this is not typical of the type of man I am drawn to) who was a cop was chasing me and caught up to me, but instead of arresting me…he said he has been following my story and wanted to go with me. He had learned a language he knew I spoke and had $10,000 cash on him and was so sincere and and loved me deeply. So we ran and the scene I remember is I wake up in a big boat and we are calmly floating down a river with amazing trees and wild life all around us. He is on one end of the boat and I am on the other. We make eye contact and we both smile. I wake up.

  • Vonn // Apr 21, 2012 at 11:46 am

    I had a dream of having lunch at a restaurant with some of my family and he sat in front. He was a very handsome caucasian with blue eyes. The rest of my family gets up and walks away, and the guy comes towards me and gives me a fruit roll up. I walk away with it smiling and when I get to the car I unroll it and there’s writing in it saying how pretty I am to him, giving me his number. I got all super excited that’s when I awoke!? Ma,n I hope this comes true hahaha It sounds cheesy but hey it wouldn’t hurt :)

  • xmas // Dec 23, 2011 at 4:36 am

    A man (who I am certain I have never met) often appears in my dreams. He has kind eyes that are the most vivid blue I have ever seen and a smile that seems to shower light on everything around him. I often dream of seemingly insignificant things; his smiles, the way he acts when he’s nervous, how he broods when he doesn’t get his way, how his eyes twinkle when he teases or crinkle when he laughs. Insignificant moments…that are more precious to me than I can adequately describe. These dreams are filled with so much happiness, love and contentment that I don’t know if the feelings are radiating from him, me or the two of us combined. I feel like I’ve already shared lifetimes with him yet I don’t even know his name, let alone whether he really exists or if he’s just an image conjured by my subconscious due to hormone imbalances or insufficient sleep or some–such logical explanation. I do know, though, that when I wake from these dreams I’m filled with a profound sadness, a sense of loss as if I was holding something wonderful and then it slipped from my hands. On some days I don’t think of the dreams at all, but once in a blue moon they hover at the edge of my every thought, reminding me of a paradise that may or may not have existed and loss that such bliss is missing from my life. On such days I enjoy dressing up and going out with friends (to the mall, library or perhaps a movie) fancying that, one of these days, I’ll walk around a corner and see him. I may walk past him. I may not recognize him or even register that he’s there. But the thought that the possibility of meeting him exists, even if the likelihood is minimal, gives me comfort. And hope. Any interpretation is welcome. (P.S. Sorry if this seems long winded and cheesy! I’m in one of my sentimental moods ^.^)

    I often dream of a man whom I don’t know at all. I never see his face, but I feel his love. Everything about this man is unreal, he is sweet, kind, caring, gentle, just a wonderful human being who, in my dreams looks after me and protects me and makes me feel that everything will be alright. Recently I dreamt again of an unknown man, except this time we kissed and I saw his face, incredibly I recognised the face, it was an actor on TV! I don’t even like this actor, but it was strange because both in the dream and in real life, he was much younger than myself. A couple of nights later, I dreamt of the unknown man again and this time he asked me out to dinner and again I saw his face, it was the car salesman that I bought my car from months ago! Despite having seen a face this time, the feelings that come from this man are the same. They are just strong feelings of love and care and concern for me in all of them he is so very very kind to me. And each time I wake up feeling so incredibly sad, that I am not with him. I have to say, I love this unknown man, his love that I feel from him is incredible I just want to sleep all the time and see him or at least feel his love because it is the most fulfilling thing ever. Who is this man? Why do I feel so sad the day after seeing him in my dreams? Does it mean that there is a man out there who loves me that much? Is it a spiritual being that feels sorry for me because I feel heartbroken? Or is it symbolising what I wanted my ex partner to be? Who ever he is, I never want him to go away, I hope I always dream of him :)

  • Mary // Apr 21, 2011 at 10:59 pm

    I’ve had several dreams about men who love me dearly but in a very possesive way. They either lock me away in massive houses or chase me across the landscape. No matter how far they chase me or how much they try to prove their love I don’t want them I always run.

    I don’t care about their attractiveness or how rich they are, I just run and hide from them. I can’t understand why.

  • naza // Mar 9, 2011 at 3:44 am

    Saw myself getting married to a very tall, handsome man with black hair.
    N.B: This man is unknown to me.

  • Louise // Feb 24, 2011 at 10:24 am

    I’m visiting a customer who used to live in a large city but now lives in a smaller place about an hour from where I live. In this dream, her daughters are now sons. They are on a hockey rink outside their home and I am watching from the front window. When they come in for supper, they bring a man with them they call “The Millionaire”, but it’s some sort of inside joke. The Millionaire is a tall man, a little soft around the edges but it’s apparent he’s worked hard all his life and he is visually strong. As he takes off his skates, he pulls his pant leg up out of the way of his laces, and I notice he has a long scar around his knee. As he bends over to undo the laces, I see another scar encircling his neck. He has sandy hair that is thick, and a little too long and kind of flops all over his head. He is very tanned and his smile is engaging. I’m not sure what we’re talking about, but our conversation is lively and full of laughter. He heads toward the basement steps as though he’s going to go downstairs, but sits on the edge of the stairs instead. I kneel beside him to talk to him, but he leans back and kisses me while I’m talking to him. It’s a light kiss with no motion; in fact, I’m still talking while he kisses me! Then he says, quite clearly, “I’d like to get to know you better, but there’s this business with my back.” I say no hard feelings, then get up and leave.

  • Bhumica // Jan 3, 2011 at 3:56 am

    I saw my car (the vehicle that I presently own) parked, kind of, stuck, in the parking of the park where I normally go for my evening walk. My children (I am divorced for some years and my children live with my ex-husband, in the same locality where I am staying) are playing nearby, and I am thinking how to get them in the car and get the car out of the parking and get on.

    A man (known in real life, however only from looks, & not acquainted; he’s very attractive, with a smiling pleasant face, and I somewhat fancy him) suddenly appears. He indulgently and laughingly talks and jokes with the kids, without any apparent effort or persuasion manages to get the kids to my standing car. He bundles them into the back seat of my car (which I’d been thinking so hard a task). He then closes the door firmly, (smiling and fully in control, yet very gentle in behaviour) comes towards the front of the car (I think for a moment that he’d take the passenger seat), but he goes around the front of the car and gets into the driver’s seat. I notice that he is dressed all in black (shirt, trousers, belt, and shoes, all black) He comfortably and smoothly backs the car out of the drive, and drives me home (I don’t actually see myself, just feel so). He brings me home (my humble home suddenly appears very beautiful to me, though unchanged). The man then tells me gently and lovingly, this is your beautiful home, and then points to another house and says, “..and that is mine”. He looks like going towards his own home now, and I feel disappointed that he does not intend to stay with me.

    My husband is in the hospital very ill. I had a dream of a very tall man standing over me. He grabbed my hand and asked if I was married. I told him my husband was ill. He then danced with me. All of a sudden, we ended up in what looked like a bathroom. We began to kiss and all of a sudden it began to start physical. When I realized what was happenning, I tried to push him away and he got forceful. I then woke up and I realized I was in the hospital at my husbands bedside.

    I was meeting a guy that I like at the grocery store. He was sitting in the bank department talking to a teller. He saw me and wavied. I walked around the store waiting for him to finish, two little people, both men starting chatting with me, then they turned to each other and started kissing each other.

  • Anne // Mar 11, 2010 at 3:30 am

    I was in a house, never seen that house before. I was there with a man, someone i love, and my best friend, we sat together and talk. Somehow i had this thought that he was there with a woman, and he had sex with that woman. I spoke to my best friend and said : “hey, i’m so lucky that i didn’t end up with him.”

    it’s kinda weird, because i was so sure that it was him, but some part of me tells me that it wasn’t really him there, it was someone else, someone mean and tricky and evil.

  • Bebbie // Jan 28, 2010 at 2:19 pm

    I was sitting with a man I had dated once. He was sitting lower than I with his head leaning on my thigh and I had my arm over his shoulder with my hand on his chest. We were gazing up at the sky where an aeroplane flew past some clouds and wiped the clouds out as it passed. It did this a few times and then vanished. We searched for the aeroplane only to find that it was so huge that it filled the sky and we could see only part of it. The mood was deeply satisfying and content.

  • yss // Jan 27, 2010 at 6:43 pm

    I was at the altar to get married but I didn’t know who I was going to marry. Two men walked up one at a time, they were pleasant and smiled and both said they were not the one. Then the one came and he was attractive, very engaging and in a wheelchair. We prepared to get married.

  • juliana // Nov 5, 2008 at 7:35 pm

    OK, so this was a strange but short dream. I was in a luxurious bed that was definitely not mine but was warm and there was a fireplace. There was a guy, 20 or so, with hazel green eyes, brown short hair and curly goatee, but not scruffy. elegant. He was smiling a half-loped smile. I looked calm to him, but I was terrified inside. I felt nervous. He was leaning towards me, one eyebrow raised. He asked me something. I was too scared to listen or to answer. The light made an orange glow.

    He did something that scared me. I cant remember what. Then he kissed my forehead and whispered something that scared me even more. I couldn’t hear it.

    And i woke up. Scared and cold. But in my room. It scares me considering I’m only 13. Someone help me interpret this, because the man is unfamiliar to me, and I was in his room.

    any ideas?

  • Liana // Oct 24, 2008 at 6:12 pm

    In my dream I am with my male friend on his farm, and there are 2 guys sitting with us, one behind me, one next to me and my male friend on the other side of me. I touched his hand and kissed his finger, the other guys saw and all of a sudden me and another girl started running away from these 2 unfamiliar guys. They didn’t catch us. I woke up. I do have feelings for my male friend but he is married and we decided to respect that. Nothing sexual has ever happened between us.

  • Watson // Dec 28, 2007 at 6:33 am

    I saw this guy I used to see intimately, he left one morning and I spent the day wondering where he was and all of a suden he was coming at me on a motorcycle and he gets off and give me the biggest hug and I was thinking this can’t be true, he died over a year ago.

Post your own dream or interpretation
