Look if you are looking for a guy you would have to consider the following points. I'm a guy so I know what I should look for in girls, it's basically the same idea.
1. Is he into u or does he just want sex
Make sure your boyfriend actually loves you, agrees with you and isn't too pushy. A boyfriend who would ask for sex instantly is a horrible boyfriend, as he doesn't really care about you. A boyfriend that listens to you is a good one.
2. Do your parents like him
This may seem like a dumb point, but if your parents really hate your boyfriend it could be bad. Make sure that your boyfriend is nice and doesn't take drugs or anything like that. If your parents like your boyfriend, you can get deeper in a relationship and you'll always have your back covered. A boyfriend approved by your parents, would be for the best. Though it's always your opinion first, don't forget that. If your parents don't like your boyfriend to start with and you know he's nice, they will probably like him later on.
3. Does he let you go first
A real boyfriend would let you have your say first. He wouldn't ask for money, threaten you or force you into anything your not willing to do. He should let you have your say. He shouldn't be too protective but should still protect you. If he monitors your every move, he's not a good boyfriend.
4. His personality
Do you like his personality? If you don't maybe talk to him about what you don't like. He should have a caring personality and friendly personality.2

Honestly, I don't really have a specific list of criteria when it comes to me dating someone. I should have one, though, because my history with guys that I choose is terrible. I'm taking a long break from dating right now. I just like someone that I have a connection with and not a connection that will fizzle out, but one that just keeps on blossoming. I want a friendship. I want them to go after me first and really show me they care.1
