What does seeing a shadow of a man at night mean?

Just curious if anyone has had any similar experiences or has any idea what was happening on this particular night. I was a 15 or 16 year old girl always getting into trouble. A friend and I got caught going out one weekend night somewhere we shouldn't have. I came home a huge lecture and a very disappointed mom. I let me friend sleep in my room for the night and I chose to sleep in my brothers room, he was at his buddy's house for the night. I had never slept in my brothers room, we lived in a very fancy neighborhood and the house was not very old. I had also never experienced anything odd like this in this house before. (We had lived there about 5 years.) I was very upset about into trouble again, I was wanting to change my ways but didn't know how. I was laying in bed hysterically crying and praying that I could change my life. I WAS NOT ASLEEP. I suddenly hear the bedroom door open, I spun my head around to see a tall black shadow standing in the doorway. I was so sure that this was a person that I actually said out loud "who's there?" The shadow did not respond, it just seemed to be staring at me although I could not make out any facial features. After about one minute it simply vanished, no movement at all. I jumped out of bed, ran to the light switch and ran to check on my friend to see if it was her. She was sound asleep in my bed. Next I ran to my Mom & step fathers room trying to get them to believe what I had saw. My step father checked the entire house and found nothing. I have had a couple of things happen in my life that cannot be explained but nothing like this ever and never since, I am now 25. I often think about that night and what this could have been or meant. Does anyone have any input?

it might be a demon
Hmmm, do your parents have any religion in particular? Because it could had of been like a ghost, devil...i dont know. Just I have had similar things happen to me like that, and all I did was pray, and I just say/recite verses from my religions holy book until in disappeared. The "thing" I saw was also just like a black shadow, but I couldn't see its facial features either, but what I did see it that it was tall, and very well built.

Your not alone at what you've experienced, I know a couple of people very close to me who have seen these shadow people before and I have seen them a few times myself but I've believed for a long time now that there are entities that walk amongst us within our own dimension and so it doesn't bother me when I catch a glimpse of one, I've never felt any negative, frightening energy from them or any hostility towards me and I've never heard of anything like that from the people I know who have seen them.

They just appear to be more interested in observing more then anything else.
