    Default Down The Road

    Dear Teachers,

    A. If you all have boyfriends, and you’re hooking up with each other. It’s very easy to pass STDs between you.
    - What does “hook up” mean in this sentence?

    B. You need to think about how it could effect your relationship with these girls later down the road.
    - Does “down the road” mean “in the end”, right?

    Thanks a million

    That sentence doesn't need any commas. Say:
    If you all have boyfriends and you’re hooking up with each other it’s very easy to pass STDs between you.
    My interpretation is that it is about sex.

    "Down the road" means in the future. If you catch an STD from a casual encounter today, 10 years from now you might mean the person of your dreams and want to marry them, but you now run the risk of infecting them.
