*PUA Lingo does not endorse or support the use of these terms. We strive to describe them the best we can based on the seduction community’s uses for them in improving men’s (and some women’s) dating lives.
A Blow Out is a set gone bad. Blow Outs can happen in the beginning of a set: for example, when the PUA makes a harsh neg without enough attraction towards the target. They can also occur later on with poor calibration such as an insult (not a neg) or a social faux pas: for example drinking from her glass without permission. If the girl stays with the PUA after this point, she can lose significant social value.
Though the term sounds bad, Blow Outs can range from the girls politely excusing themselves to verbal insults and being told to go away. In the former case, it is usually because the PUA has not reached the hook point or had issues with the opening routine. The latter can be caused by harsh negs without attraction, improper calibration, or the mood of the girl on that particular day. PUAs should not take Blow Outs personally. Instead, learn from the experience, so as not to get blown out in future sets.
