In America, it’s my experience that date always means something romantic, or potentially romantic. I think it’s a bad idea to use it unless those are your intentions.
In other countries, I have heard people use it when they have a regular meeting that they have to attend. So, in places like Ireland and Australia there seems to be no confusion – you can say date without anybody necessarily thinking that you have romantic intentions.
No. If they say something like "it's a date" after planning something then that's the extent to where it's not romantic, sometimes you'll see for example on TV that characters will even clarify after this that they mean it in a non-romantic sense. Usually people invite others to lunch if they're colleagues, or to dinner if they're friends or doing like a gathering, but not usually one-on-one.
