    It means: someone I can agree with
    b is therefore the correct answer

    I would say: none of them.

    a man after my own heart is - someone I can agree with and who conforms with my innermost approval and desire; a kindred spirit. He neither looks like me, follow me nor does he have to like the things that I like. But maybe the last one - having similar likes and dislikes - is closer to the right meaning...
