3 Phrases to Use When Dating in America

Lindsay: This is an All Ears English Podcast, Episode 59, “3 Phrases to Use When Dating in America.”

[Instrumental]

Gabby: Welcome to the All Ears English Podcast, where you’ll finally get real, native English conversation. Now here are your hosts, Lindsay McMahon, the ‘English Adventurer’ and Gabby Wallace, the ‘Language Angel,’ coming to you from Boston, Massachusetts, USA.

In this episode, learn English slang for safe sex.

[Instrumental]

Gabby:

Hey Lindsay. What’s up?

Lindsay:

Hey Gabby. Not a whole lot.

Gabby:

Awesome. So, I know you guys love hearing our voices but we want to hear your voices and now when you come to our website, www.allearsenglish.com, look on the right side of the web page and you’ll see an orange line or an orange bar that says “Click to send us a voicemail.” You just click on that orange- it’s very easy. You can record us a voicemail message. Send us your comment, your question, anything you like; we want to hear your voice.

Lindsay:

Cool.

Gabby:

All right. So today’s a ‘Teaching Tuesday’ and let’s get right into it. We have three phrases that you can use when you’re dating in America. This is related to our ‘Meeting Monday’ episode yesterday, “The Unspoken Rules of Dating in the US.” Lindsay:

Yeah. So our first term was ‘last resort.’ Gabby:

Yeah, the ‘last resort’ means your last choice.

Lindsay:

So you don’t want to be someone’s last resort.

Gabby:

Your last option.

Lindsay:

Mm.

Gabby:

Maybe, (like), if you, if you’re choosing a dessert, right?

Lindsay:

Right.

Gabby:

And you, you don’t really like chocolate, but… Lindsay:

(Aw) come on chocolate’s great. My last resort would be vanilla.

Gabby:

All right. All right. All right. So you can choose between chocolate and, and vanilla ice cream. (Ah), but, (you know), the waiter says “I’m sorry, we’re out of chocolate.” Well then you have to choose the vanilla ice cream because… Lindsay:

It’s your last resort.

Gabby:

…it’s your last resort.

Lindsay:

Right.

Gabby:

(Wah, wah).

Lindsay:

Yeah, and in yesterday’s episode, we talked about someone texting you on a Saturday evening at (like) 6 pm.

Gabby:

Right.

Lindsay:

In that case, (you know), that they’re, you are their last resort for something to do that night.

Gabby:

Bummer. If you go on vacation, you’re looking for a place to stay and all the hotels are booked except, (you know), the most expensive one, well, it’s your last resort but you have to reserve it because that’s all there is.

Lindsay:

(Mm-hm).

Gabby:

All right so we think you get it so let’s go on to the next one, ‘to wait until the last minute.’ So if you wait until the last minute, you’re gonna (going to) have to go with your last resort, right?

Lindsay:

Exactly. To wait until the last minute. And we also say ‘put something off until the last minute.’ Gabby:

Right.

Lindsay:

Could be another way that we use this in a sentence.

Gabby:

Right. Right.

Lindsay:

Yeah, the last minute is the last possible time.

Gabby:

Yeah. (Um) you’re running out of time. (Um) often we use this with deadlines, (like) if you have to submit a report by a certain time and you procrastinate, you wait until the last minute.

Lindsay:

(Mm-hm).

Gabby:

So it’s due at midnight and you submit it at 11:59.

Lindsay:

Yeah. So don’t do that.

Gabby:

What’s the last phrase?

Lindsay:

The last one is ‘wrap up.’ So this can be used in a lot of different ways.

Gabby:

Yeah.

Lindsay:

So we talked about ending a conversation. Maybe you would wrap up a conversation, you could wrap up a date… Gabby:

A date. Yeah.

Lindsay:

…with someone.

Gabby:

And it’s, it’s also used, (um), (you know), just to be honest, so you know (like) how it’s really used, (um), when we talk about safe sex, we can say “You better wrap it up.”

Lindsay:

Right.

Gabby:

So it means, (you know), to use a condom and have safe sex. So we’re here to bring you real English. So we want you to know that.

Lindsay:

There you go. So there we have three terms. Should we have them repeat?

Gabby:

Yeah, let’s repeat. So (um) the, the first phrase was ‘last resort.’ Lindsay:

Next phrase was ‘last minute.’

Gabby:

And ‘wrap up’ or ‘wrap it up.’ Awesome.

Lindsay:

Okay.
