This version of the sign is good if you mean "date" as in the concept of two
people getting together to develop their relationship as in, "Do you want to go
on a date?"
Start with your hands slightly apart,
palms facing each other, hands in "D" shapes. Bring the hands
together to touch at the fingertips, then pull apart about an inch-and-a-half
then bring together again. Use a small quick movement.
If you mean "date" as in a specific day that something will happen,
then either spell the letters D-A-T-E, or construct your sentence to
not need the word "date." For example, "YOUR BIRTHDAY PARTY, [what]
DAY?" [Raise your eyebrows a bit on the signs YOUR and BIRTHDAY,
then furrow your eyebrows a bit on the sign DAY.]
