1- “Last resort”: Last choice, last option. You don’t want to be someone’s “last resort.”

If someone texts you on a Saturday at 6pm and asks you out on a date for that night, you are their last resort!

2- “The last minute”: This means the last possible time. You shouldn’t set up a date at the last minute!

3- “To wrap up”: To end something (an event) or to use a condom in order to have safe sex.

Examples: “It’s time to wrap up the conversation and go home” and “If you want to protect yourself from diseases, you should wrap it up.”
