I think in most cases, it's pretty rare to know whether or not you have real dating potential with someone after only a few hours.My question is, how long of a chance do you think you have to give the spark to develop?In my new dating life, a problem I'm dealing with a lot is the disappointment I feel when I don't get that sparky feeling with a guy. The way I see it, on a formal first date (by which I mean with a person you don't know well yet, like an online date or a setup), there are three possible outcomes: For me--a love at first sight non-believer--number 3 is the most frequent scenario.I've rarely experienced numbers 1 or 2 (luckily and sadly, respectively).You're not going to regret spending some more time with a decent guy, even if sparks don't develop. You absolutely call it quits after a miserable first date (or even before it).If you've been single for a long time and/or heard the old "You're just too picky" advice (blech), you may feel pressured to keep an open mind. This isn't a hard and fast rule, but let's say you spend two to three hours together on each date, with some emailing, texting, or phone time in between. If you're not feeling any sense of chemistry or attachment, it's OK to give up.

My friend inspired this one today by making that announcement to me about a lunch date she has.
