no, its only illegal if your committing a sexual act. he or she shouldn't get arrested for kissing or hugging OR let alone "dating" somebody that's under 18 but if its sex then yeah. i don't know about other states but i do know its not illegal in California.

AnswerThe age of sexual consent differs depending upon the state in which you live. In relationships between an adult and a minor where there is such a large discrepancy in ages; it is very possible the adult male could face numerous criminal charges including statutory rape which is a class "A" felony and punishable by imprisonment in every state.

You can certainly get into trouble with your parents, or with health issues, but there is nothing illegal about someone 16 or older dating or having sexual contact with an older person in Georgia.

no they shouldn't get in trouble if the parents are ok with it and their not 4 or more years older than the one they're dating

It all depends on the age of the 2 people and what their parents have to say about them dating.

yeah i know someone who is dating someone 10 years older than Her!! Yes, My mother Married a Man that was 6 years younger than she was. The only thing that might get in the way are parents permission and you will not have any classes with them (If your still in school)

It seems like you like this guy, Two years is not an incredible age difference, especially as you get older. But if you do not like the idea of dating someone two years older, it seems he will probably only get off your mind when you begin to like someone else.

caroline flack was 15 years older than him and taylor swift was 4 years older when they were dating

If your under 16, Its is illegal to date someone 10 years older. This person would be considered a pedophile. And you know, it'll feel a bit weird. Think about it, pretend your 30 and you're dating a guy/woman who's 40.

There are no laws about dating. There are laws regarding sexual contact vary from place to place. The age of consent is typically 16, but could be as high as 18 depending on the state.

Safe isn't about age, it is about trust. If you are talking about legally, there are no laws about dating. If you are using dating as an euphemism for other things, no. If at least one of the individuals is under the age of consent, there could be a problem.

The age of consent in Hawai'i is 16. One can engage in sexual acts with someone from age 14 in the state, provided the older individual is no more than five years older.

It depends on your gender, if you are a male and want to date a girl that is four years older than you, then go for it, it might be a little weird to your friends, but if she is the girl for you then it does not matter. If you are a girl and dating a boy that is four years older than you then it is ok. You can date whoever you want, its a free country and you can be as out there as you can.

hey girl, who gives a care i know someone who married someone over20 years older than she.

No. You are 8 and a child. A 15 year old is not interested in you for a dating. She wants someone her age or older. Go outside and play. Quit thinking about dating at 8 years old. You have 8 years before you can date.

Many people date those who are much older than them, but if it is acceptable, it really depends on what type of family and culture you have. Just don't get yourself into trouble.
