Would you be kind enough to give me your considered opinion concerning the interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentences?
“You did not look too far afield for your current partner. Was that choice controlled?”
field = beyond the range or field of one's experience, knowledge, acquaintanceship
far afield = far off
When we started to discuss theology; Jack was obviously getting far afield from the subject at hand.
far afield = remote; far from the original starting point
