Lets say you've seen a girl/guy you have a crush on. You meet each other for the first time, talking, getting to know a bit about each other etc. Would you befriend him/her first before you starting dating or go for the kiss straight away?

I'd much rather be friends with someone before I start dating them. I like being comfortable around someone before thinking of taking things further. If I go on a date with someone I barely know, I'm always nervous and it's a lot harder for me to really be myself, but if I know the guy I'm with a bit better, things go much more smoothly.
Also, putting the effort into building a friendship with someone really shows that you care for them.1

Yes, that's a good idea to always befriend that person and then proceed to dating.1
