Term to describe someone who you are more than friends with, but not in a relationship with. Short for "the potential boyfriend/girlfriend," it's meant to finally define this limbo period when you're kinda seeing, kinda dating someone.
Son: Hey mom, what's Kelcey doing tonight?

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

Son: Oh geez, god help that boy!
