Many go to me to meet,
You can get to me without your feet;
A candle or a lamp at night,
To use I must at first ignite;
With me you’ll see,
Some at first sight;
A burning fire of love’s desire
Between two, or a flame at night.

What am I?

Could it be the word:

match?

Many go to me to meet

You can get to me without your feet:

Match.com, a dating website which you can get to using only your fingers. (thanks @Aggiekidd)

A candle or a lamp at night

To use at first I must ignite

To light a candle or a lamp, you first need to strike a match

With me you'll see

Some at first sight

Something to do with matches made in heaven and love at first sight?

A burning fire of love's desire

Between two or a flame at night

Again, match can mean both "a flaming stick" or a "pair" even a pair of people in love.
