To dream that you are on a date represents your need for self-discovery and self-awareness. Generally speaking, when you date some stranger that you do not know in real life, the dream event typically suggests that you are getting to know some hidden aspects of yourself. The dating dream can also be an eye opener when you are finally acknowledging your hidden talents. When you dream about dating someone you know, it does not necessarily mean that you are physically or romantically attracted to them, it can have deeper secondary meanings.

Dreams in this case are rehearsals that your mind creates for an actual date, like sometimes you would dream about a test before an actual exam. It could also be about a past date that you have experienced.
