Preferably someone who is incorruptible and who would wear a mask, to protect the people he cares about.

And look at how Bruce looks at Robin leaving Wayne Manor, even when Alfred walks away, he is still looking at Blake
Sure it may be my own interpretation, but you can tell the idea of having Blake as the next Batman is already brewing in Bruce's head
Bruce sees himself in Blake and that comes across in that first meeting like you say. About the whole hero with a mask thing Blake is a hero without a mask its Bruce persuading him to wear one
