Hi,

I looked up "spin out" online and here's what I got (from Urban Dictionary):

When one becomes so perplexed and disorientated as a result of their environment and/or substances consumed that they suffer a spin out and lose consciousness. Usually, victims of a spin out will regain consciousness in an unfamiliar house covered in vomit.

--

So does spin out have something to do with your head spinning after drinking alcohol?

My sentence is from Cassandra Piat's book What's it gonna be?: A Romantic comedy set in Mauritius
It’s such a spin out! Just imagine if you end up meeting someone that way…

Thank you!

    They are talking about the dating site match.com
    "After all, I don't have to reply to anyone if I don't want to you know, it’s all anonymous.”
    “It’s such a spin out! Just imagine if you end up meeting someone that way…” I said, my thoughts drifting off imagining Olivia getting married to a gorgeous, dark haired man...

    It's not related to your dictionary definition. It's an emotional reaction to the online dating concept, which leads her off into her fantasy about Olivia. Hard to define exactly but "It's mind-boggling!" might fit the bill.
