If you're talking about a permanent partner, then I look for loyalty, emotional strength, financial maturity, and a willingness to let me have my way sometimes. This last quality used to be called "submissiveness," but that is now considered a controversial, so I think I should explain. I'm submissive to my wife all the time about some things, mostly stuff she knows more about, is better than me at, or just cares about more. I would like that to be reciprocated occasionally without a debate every time. It's important to everyone, men and women.
By loyalty I mean someone I can trust to do right by me, just like I should do right by her. Emotional strength means that she won't overreact to perceived slights by anybody, including me. There are lots of people of both sexes who are like that. And financial maturity means that she can keep track of how much money we have, how much we can spend, has a willingness to pay for prudent things like insurance, retirement accounts, and things like that, that don't have obvious immediate benefits.
If it's NOT serious, I like a girl with a nice smile and a nice ass.0
