Philipina dating

Traditionally, a Filipino woman is "shy and secretive" about her feelings for a suitor.

Although having a series of friendly dates is the normal starting point in the Filipino way of courting, this may also begin through the process of "teasing", a process of "pairing off" a potential teenage or adult couple.

The teasing is done by peers or friends of the couple being matched.

The teasing practice assists in discerning the actual feelings of the male and the female involved.

The woman can also have as many suitors, from which she could choose the man that she finally would want to date.

Dating couples are expected to be conservative and not perform public displays of affection for each other.

The Ifugao of northern Luzon practices a courtship called ca-i-sing (this practice is known as the ebgan to the Kalinga tribes and as pangis to the Tingguian tribes), wherein males and females are separated into "houses".

The house for the Filipino males is called the Ato, while the house for Filipino females is known as the olog or agamang.

However, this type of admirer could overcome his shyness and naivety by asking for the help of a "tulay" (Filipino for "Bridge", whose role is similar to that of the Wingman in Western Cultures), typically a mutual friend of both the suitor and the admired, or a close friend of both families.
