Why would a guy date another girl when he likes a different one?

Sure. Especially if it seems to him like he can't have the girl he first girl, then yes. If she seems off limits, or like she doesn't have any interest in him, or if she's taken, or some other reason, then yeah, it's possible he'd date someone else. I did.
The girl I am with now, I once told her how I felt about her, and she shot me down. So after a couple weeks someone else came along, who I also started to like (though truthfully not as much) and I dated her. The reason I did it was I made a move, she told me she wasn't interested, so I moved on, and I found someone else. As I said, I did like her too, just not as much. The relationship ended, after a couple of months of me dating her, and shortly after, the girl who shot me down told me she had feelings for me too, that developed over that time.
The point is, there are a number of reasons why somebody would date somebody else even though they like someone first. Sometimes they just have their reasons for not dating that person, or not being able to date that person at that time, and so they just sorta accept it, and try to move on, and find someone else. Sometimes that someone else is good enough, or even better, so it sticks. Sometimes that person is nothing more than a second choice, or a rebound. Sometimes they still can't get over the first person.
But yes, people do, in fact, do this. It might suck, but it happens.6
