The term used to describe someone who you're more than friends with, but not in a relationship with. Short for "the potential boyfriend/girlfriend," it is used to define that awkward limbo phase where you're kinda dating/kinda seeing someone.
Son: Hey mom, where's Kelcey?

Mom: She's hanging out with Marco. I think he's The Potential.

Son: Oh geez, God help that poor boy.

Son: Hey mom, what's Kelcey doing tonight?

Mom: She's hanging out with Marco again. It looks like he's The Potential.
