Dream about a Man If your dream last night included a man, you can be sure of lots of different types of meanings to your dream. There are different meanings to glean from a \u201cman dream.\u201d If the man is known to you, the dream may be a reflection of your feelings towards him or even any concerns you might have for him. If you are a man and dream of an unknown man, you are examining your own masculinity \u2013 the part of you that may be assertive, aggressive, rational and competitive. If you are a woman and dream that a man is holding you in his arms, it means that you embrace your stronger, assertive personality. It can also mean that you desire to be in a relationship and your dream man is your image of the ideal. Sometimes, the man\u2019s behavior towards you in the dream can spotlight anxieties or feelings about a relationship that you may be currently involved in. To see an old man in your dream might represent wisdom or even forgiveness. Often, an old man personifies and may even validate an internal wisdom you have within yourself but have so far ignored. It might also mean that you are dealing with a problem to which you are having a hard time solving, maybe because of your conscious view and beliefs of the world. You may be reluctant to solve the problem the way you feel inclined to because you see it as old-fashioned. Seeing the old man in your dreams means that your subconscious is trying to teach you that you should listen and solve the problem in your own, perhaps \u201cold-fashioned\u201d way.
