That means date interview: date interview
The expression “Dateview” is a portmanteau and is made up of the English terms “Date” and “Interview”. This is used to describe a date that feels more like an interview for a job than a casual meeting. “Dateview” has negative connotations as it is seen as an unsuccessful date.
While it’s normal to ask a few questions to get to know someone, too many can feel almost rude. Of course, it’s perfectly normal to be curious about the potential crush. When things are going well, it can feel like a natural progression to get into more detail. However, in a “dateview” situation, it doesn’t feel natural to the person being asked.

This is how you recognize a date view
The “Dateview” can be recognized by the fact that questions appear to be processed by default and the conversation does not run naturally. Someone conducting a “dateview” may be asking questions that are just too many. They can be pushy and overly personal. You may have the feeling of being judged by a checklist.
Typical “Dateview” questions:
- How do you earn your money?
- How much do you earn?
- Do you live alone or with someone else?
- Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
- What happened in your last relationship?
- Do you want to have children in the next 2 years?
You can do that after a date view
Similar to breadcrumbing, the “dateview” gives mixed signals. Of course, it is understandable that you don’t always have a deep talk straight away. When you slide into the DMs for the first time, there is often a short phase of small talk, but by the rl-Date at the latest you want more than just working through the FAQs.
So what to do, like ghosts? Of course, it is best to talk openly with the person about the negative experience of the “Date View”. Friendly but honest feedback prevents most misunderstandings, because maybe your date was just nervous and you can try again.
