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.

I thought wow, I am actually settling this guy down! He's been living in North America for 10 years and has learned to leave the North American way.
So, traditionally, marriages were arranged with the couple not having any unsupervised time together before the marriage – or possibly even meeting each other before the engagement.
Things are changing though, and especially in the Muslim immigrant communities.
