About to go out on a third date with this guy I really like (have been friends for 10 years).
Here's the thing -- I have been out of the dating game for quite a while (recently divorced) and was hoping for some opinions as to the significance of the "3rd date". I know there is the rule regarding sex (in our case we already know this as we slept together recently and when we dated a decade ago).
So, I am wondering about the OTHER rule. What do you think? Would you go out on a 3rd date with a girl if you didn't think there was relationship potential?
Is the 3rd date the milestone that evaluates whether there is relationship potential?
What sorta things do guys or should girls think about when on the 3rd date?

I don't think a 3rd date has particular significance. I just went out with a guy for 6 dates before I was clearly able to see he was NOT a good match. For me the real significance comes with time and even that can be an illusion. Put it this way, you can be married for 5 years, 10 years, 30 years or more and suddenly have your partner say they don't want to be with you anymore.
So, getting to a 3rd date is great. Enjoy it and hopefully there will be a 4th. Don't expend energy trying to predict the future, just enjoy the now.0
