I see girls saying they are old fashioned and such and prefer "old fashioned dating." Now I wouldn't such a girl looking for something old fashioned be looking to become a "stay at home housewife" and such? I would imagine that a girl would be offended by such a statement though. But shouldn't an "old fashioned" couple be leading to an "old fashioned marriage?"

from what I've observed It seems that women are referring to old fashioned dating "the testing period to see if a relationship will bloom." Meaning that the man pays for the dates, the woman doesn't engage in sexual activity until there is commitment and a "bond". Once a relationship is started, then their behavior as a couple is more in line with modern times.
Women who want traditional relationships, usually want traditional marriages. Ex- Women who wait until marriage to have sex. Women who don't pursue a career/education, but a husband.
You can usually tell a womans preference on a traditional relationship vs a traditional language simply by talking to her. A woman who believes that a man is the head of the house hold and a woman is the tail, will more likely be in favor of a traditional marriage. A Woman who believe that men and women are equal will most likely not.
However this isn't a rule of thumb. There are plenty of modern/feminist women who choose to be SAHW and choose to be submissive to their husbands, simply because they want to and prefer that relationship dynamic. It really depends on the woman, and what she wants.
*Side note, in todays economy its practically a luxury to be a SAHW. the cost of living is rising above the average wage. Most married couples have to work simply to make ends meet, with our without children.
but If you're interested in a traditional marriage/relationship, its simply best to ask the women that you're dating. They'll tell you if they're down for it or not.2
