This means to see a man in your dream and it is a very common type of dream to have!
Seeing people in our dream is a very common experience. Sometimes we know who they are, and the dream makes a little more sense. Sometimes even knowing who they are does not help us much.
A man in a dream represents the masculine archetype, it represents qualities such as masculinity, power, ambition, drive, protection, strength, and courage.
Therefore, these qualities will relate to issues in your waking life that your subconscious is trying to bring to your attention in your dream one way or another.
Dreaming About A Man You Do Not Know
If you see a man in your dream that you do not know, one interpretation is that this person is on their way into your life.
They may be someone to help you in your situation, or may simply be a new friend coming into your life.
This dream can also indicate that masculine-dominated qualities inside you are being repressed or ignored. There may be issues in your life which call you to take on these qualities and harness them, hence why you are having the dream at this time.

Dreaming About A Man You Know
If the man is known in your life already, then the details and symbols that will appear in your dream with him will indicate what area of your life this person is relevant in.
Sometimes we are not sure if we should have people in our life and then we dream about them, and this is often a cue that this person is there for a reason. This sometimes even means this person is a soul connection, as dreams are one method our soul connections use to communicate with us.
Dreaming about a man you know often means you have an important karmic connection with them and you are living it now. The circumstances and atmosphere in your dream can sometimes give you clues as to what this karmic connection is.
Dreaming About An Older Man
An older man appearing in your dream is suggesting that more wisdom is required in your given situation.
You may need to consult a third party for more details and information before you make a decision, or you may need to consult an older male in your life, like a father or grandfather, to help bring you some peace over a situation that is vexing you.
Dreaming About A Younger Man
If you dream about a younger man, it could mean that a younger man in your life is going to play a significant role in your waking life in the coming future.
This dream can also indicate that your masculine qualities are still at a ‘young’ stage and you may be required in your waking life to help them grow by acknowledging them and nurturing them.
