Filipino dating traditions

Friendly dates are often the starting point, often with a group of other friends.Later, couples may go out on their own, but this is still to be done discreetly.It is rather inappropriate to court a woman and formalize the relationship without informing the parents of the girl.It is always expected that the guy must show his face to the girl's family. There are a lot of traditions that Filipinos follow in the belief of ushering in a prosperous new year.

It is said that in the Philippines, courting a Filipina means courting her family as well.

After a long courtship, if the couple later decide to get married, there is the Filipino tradition of pamamanhikan (from panik, to go up the stairs of the house), where the man and his parents visit the woman's family and ask for her parents blessings to marry their daughter.

It is also an occasion for the parents of the woman to get to know the parents of the man.

Thereafter, going out on several dates is like reaching the second and third bases.

A 'home-run' is one where the girl formally accepts the man's love, and they become magkasintahan (from sinta, love), a term for boyfriend-girlfriend.
