    "mercy date" means

    You go on a date with someone because you feel sorry for this person.

    The sorry you feel might be

    (1)this person is just out of a relation

    (2)the person does not have a good looking

    ... and so on. In a word, it is to offer someone a date to comfort him or her.

    However, it can also be used between couple, here is a link for this situation:
