instead of boyfriend/girlfriend material? what does settling down mean? or did i answer my own question already in the title? as in looking for someone to get married with, looking for someone who is husband/wife material instead of boyfriend/husband material?

It means that someone wants to exit the single life for good and settle down with someone. Typically it means marriage, but it could also mean serious/committed cohabitation as well.
Usually it means that a man/woman wants to start a family soon, or get more stability/security out of their romantic relationships.
Everyone doesn't want to have children when they settle down, and everyone doesn't want to get married either. Some people just want to have a partner/companion by their side.
Now this doesn't particularly mean monogamy either (for non-monogamous people), It simply means they want a stable partner for a longer duration in their life.0
