If you have a dream in which you see a dark figure, or a dark man, these are some of the most potent symbols because of the fact that they are so closely related to humanity but at the same time are not human. This can be perplexing and frightening to the mind but fear not.
If you have a dream about a dark figure this may at first appear sinister and it may very well be sinister but let's not imagine the worst case scenario first. If you have a dream about a dark figure, try to think if you have met anyone new relatively recently. If you have and then you have this dream of a dark figure then it could be that you are seeing this because you want to get to know this new person but you are not sure how. This new person is probably fairly interesting and you want to know who they are, but they keep their true selves hidden because they are so enigmatic. You can only get to know them by talking to them more and though it may seem intimidating, this dream suggests that you would really like to get to know him so you might as well go for it. Meet the dark figure; talk with him, and then maybe things won't be so scary, because a dream of a random dark figure means ominous things loom.
If you have a dream of a dark man your first thought might be to panic, after all this can be a pretty scary symbol. Nobody wants to see a dark man because they are scared of what he might represent, evil, death, destruction? This is actually a flaw in the way that humans think; we always assume that something new is going to be threatening if it has to do with darkness at all when this is not really the case. If you have a dream in which you see a dark man it is probably because you have met someone new in the waking world, or you are right about to. When you do meet this man again you want to get to know him better. The darkness in the dream is just a sign that you don't know him all that well and that you might want to get to know him a little bit better. If this is the case, just put a little more effort in when trying to establish a conversation with him and he will probably open up to you.
