English term or phrase: to be out
В романе:

His father started to watch Annabel again.
"Strange how much nearer in age you two are, both of you, than tp Diana or me," he said, looking for a moment, as if in self pity, at his wife who chose to ignore this; thence back once more on Annabel, the Paynton, who was growing yet but was full grown already, lush.
...
His father interrupted. "Yes, my dear, have you ever considered," he said to his wife,"only two years between him and ****any girl who's "out"*****?"

Annabel и son - молодые люди.

Что может в данном контексте значить "out", какие мнения?
