i think some people who have the mindset of "dating for marriage" are waiting for the right time... like, they aren't waiting around for the guy/girl to show up out of nowhere. they want to date someone who also has long-term relationship goals and they themselves go into the "dating scene" looking for people they could potentially see themselves marrying.
you have to know yourself and know if you're in a place where you're ready for serious dating. people have various reasons for wanting to put off dating (college/career, finances, emotional scars, etc).

I don't prefer to seek women with the intention of marriage. But yeah, I would eventually want the relationship to head towards marriage.
