When the male lion is young and does not have a mate, he has to hunt for his food. After the male lion gets a mate, the female lion (lioness), hunts for food and she offers her male lion the food to eat first. After he has his fill, then the female lion and the cubs will eat the kill.
If you are a female and you dream of a male lion, it can mean that you are doing all the work in real life. Your male partner does not help you.
If you are a male and dream of the female lion, it can mean you have been over dependent on females for your basic necessities.
This dream interpretation can mean you should change the way you live your life. You should learn to be independent.
