I know Islam is pretty strict about dating and stuff. I heard that you technically can't even touch the girl to put an engagement ring on her finger (nor do they wear rings after marriage?) And can't be alone together etc. Yet I'm curious then, how do you date?
I picture like awkward mom dad son and some girl situation at the dinner table... I'm genuinely interested because I know one Muslim man who is devout, prays daily etc. But he still takes photos with female friends with his arm on their back friendly and all that so I'm curious...

well you ca not relate the two together i guess. are there not Christians who are religious but still engage in sexual activity that are obvious sins?
and to answer your question from what i know from research; they can touch her if the contract has been written. If so she is legally his wife. They only postpone the sexual acts till after the wedding. She can be his fiance'/wife at the same time.
And on a date they could talk about various things, enjoy unlimited pleasures... and i wonder what is wrong with people enjoying each other without having to touch and hold hands.
Actually I think that the tension of wanting to be closer but keeping it for after marriage can help keep the sexual tension long after the first couple of months of marriage.0
