I've noticed that the large majority of women that I've dated had started off as friendships first, eventually leading into something more. Do most girls prefer a friendship first with a guy first? If yes, why?

I can see pros and cons. It's nice if the relationship is based on friendship, because you'll have the foundation of basic respect and care for each other's well being, and you skip past the awkward getting-to-know-you phase. On the other hand, if it goes south, the friendship could be ruined. I haven't had a relationship at all, so I can't say what I'd prefer.1
