Is it OK for a 17-year-old to date a 21-year-old as long as it is non-sexual?

Actually, yeah, it is legal if it is non-sexual. Only if the parents disapprove can they cause some real problems. I don't see why the distinction even has to be made in the first place, for crying out it loud it's just DATING. And all this for a bunch of numbers. You're 17, and I'm sure you have a brain, conscience, and unique set of values. So listen to yourself and be confident!

In some jurisdictions, you can even have a sexual relationship, though that depends on the laws in your area.
