If the suitor then puts pressure on you to compromise in this regard, ditch him or her immediately. In other words, go to movies, go out for dinner or coffee, but do so in well-populated areas where there are always adults nearby.

My experiences with canon law and teenagers have taught me a thing or two about what constitutes unhealthy teenage dating behavior, as well as what type of courtship leads to healthy marriages.
