At this stage, the couple can now start dating in public but always in the company of a chaperon.
The man will still continue to come to the house and help out.
In this first visit, the couple will not be left alone on their own to get to know each other.
Note that in most times, the couple will be with either friends or families.
Girls are made to believe that men will value them more if they are made to work hard before letting them have what they want.
So after a long period of paninilbihan and a series of haranas, the girl can finally accept the suitor's love.
It is expected that a Filipina will play hard-to-get when court because that is the norm.
No matter how much she likes the man, she has to show utmost restraint and disinterest.
The parents in turn will introduce their daughter to the gentleman.
