Hello there,

I maybe go on some dates that can lead to a relationship; basically I'm after some casual situation but open to it getting serious.

Does the part in bold sound idiomatic to you?

Thanks.

It's commonly said enough that it might be considered idiomatic. A simpler version might be: "I'm open to going on dates that may become serious". This indicates you are not simply playing the field, but you are open to a long-term relationship.
