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.

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

Son: Oh geez, God help that poor boy.
