which one is correct?

Word мужчина has an end of 'a', so my dictionary told me that it's a feminine noun, but in reality it has a masculine meaning. So what kind of adjective should be used to describe it ?

мой мужчина or моя мужчина , красивый мужчина or красивая мужчина?

    Word мужчина has an end of 'a', it's a masculine noun, as the same as other words, for example: дедушка, папа, юноша, сынишка, мальчишка, Вова (Владимир), Паша (Павел) -я: дядя, Илья, and so on

    красивый мужчина

    if the noun is masculine, you use masculine form of adjective.

    мой мужчина or моя мужчина ? - Мой мужчина
    красивый мужчина or красивая мужчина? - Красивый мужчина

    Maybe, handsome man is beter meaning for красивый мужчина
