The `Stronger` hitmaker - who has been single since splitting from model Amber Rose earlier this year - dreams of settling down and starting a family, and is now only looking to date women he thinks he could marry.
He said: "My goal in life is to really have an amazing woman and have a family, but I think I had to go through different things to grow.
"I`m not trying to dive into anything unless I really, really think that I can marry this person. I look at this person and I say, `This is how I want my daughter to be.`
"I like to really dive in and super-obsess and focus on something and make it as good as possible, so it`s like really focusing on my relationship or focusing on my family, but it has to be the right person to do that with."
Despite their split, Kanye insists Amber changed his life and made him a "nicer person" during their two-year romance.
He added to New York radio station Hot 97: "It was an amazing time and it came to an end.
"One of the greatest things that she showed me was just to be a nicer person because she was so disconnected from the concept of celebrity when I first met her.
"A celebrity could be talking to people crazy and everyone`s used to it at the label like, `He`s wildin` out. It doesn`t matter.` Amber be like, `What?! You just talked to your fans so crazy right now. I`m not even talking to you now.`
"I grew from that. I think that was the greatest growth that I got from that experience."
