You can control the symbols drawn at each point with the SymbolShape
option. Setting SymbolShape to None for each line will do what I think 
you want.

    Needs[ "Graphics`MultipleListPlot`"]

    ls1 = Table[ {x, Sin[x]},{x, 0, 10, .5}];

    ls2 = Table[ {x, Cos[x]},{x, 0, 10, .5}];

    MultipleListPlot[ ls1, ls2 , 
            SymbolShape -> {None, None},
            PlotJoined -> True,
            LineStyles ->{Dashing[{0.05}],Dashing[{0.02}]}]


I hope this helps.
