Speaking to Reveal, the Essex reality star and fashion designer said: "It would be someone that is caring, loyal. Normally, I'm quite a good judge of character. James isn't a bad guy but he isn't great at being a boyfriend."
"I don't want anyone that's interested in the fame and the mad little reality bubble that we live in," she added.
"I'd like someone that's quite grounded and normal, someone that has their own little career going for them. All the girls in TOWIE are quite business driven so I want someone that meets me on that level.
"I couldn't go out with a daddy's little rich boy type – that's a major turn off. I like someone that spends a lot of time with their family – that's a huge thing for me.
"For now I'm just happy doing what I'm doing, but I'll see what happens in the New Year."
Danni also told us she's happy being single over Christmas, saying: "I feel alright about it! To be honest, the last two years me and James have broken up over Christmas and then we get back together [laughs]. But yeah, I'm fine!
"For me that's the busiest time of year with my shop – it's crazy and I'm in there every Saturday and my mum makes me do Sundays as well!
"I think it's the best time to meet people because everyone is out. You've got loads of work parties and it's fun. A lot of my friends work in the city so I get to go along to their parties. I'll come to yours! There might be a nice man there!"
Danielle, 28, chatted to us while posing with TOWIE castmate Chloe Lewis for a 12-page festive fashion photoshoot in the new issue of Reveal magazine, in shops now.
