Please remember this whenever you're faced with a Muslim conundrum. Some Muslims outright say it 'I'm dating' and they are, in the complete boy-meets-girl-third-base sense. This entire dating culture of meeting someone for only sex, for only a short-term relationship, is not the ideal or healthiest way to go about finding a partner-in-crime.
Loving God and following His ultimate guidance is the sole reason and goal in Muslim belief. The more real answer is that yes, a lot of Muslims do. This type of dating to see if it's going anywhere or just stringing people along with heartache is not in Islamic law.
Our system allows marriage minded Muslims from all over the world to meet each other in a Halal third-party environment, from the comfort of their home, through the power of HD video and a high-speed internet connection.
Of course anyone else who is looking to settle down will have that in common with Muslims.
You explain that dating is needed since arranged marriages are not feasible.
However, by saying this you imply that these are the only two routes to getting married.
The choice of a marriage partner is one of the most important decisions a person will make in his or her lifetime.
It should be taken as seriously as any other major decision in life - with prayer, careful investigation, and family involvement.
