Why can't it also be "Do you look for me?"?

I do think "Do you look for me?" is actually more correct here. If they want us to translate into the present continuous, then the Dutch should be in the present continuous as well, no?

I have found that if the English is in the present continuous then the Dutch can either be in the present or the present continuous, but if the English is in the present then the Dutch must be in the present. If the Dutch is in the present continuous then the English must be in the present continuous and if the Dutch is in the present then the English can either be in the present or the present continuous.
