Question about United Kingdom

I’m not sure if I understand what “a date” means in the UK.

Somebody texted me that he wanted to take me out for a date after seeing each other for the first time at a meetup.

Is “a date” very casual, like you can have it even though you don’t know them very well and are not interested in them in that way yet? Can you decide after dating several times? Or should I say I still don't know if I want to have a date with him?

The Japanese style of date is very different from Western ones, so I would like to get some help not to make a mess.

Thank you in advance.
