Yes the age of consent in Texas is 17, so there is no problem, but remember to use contraception to avoid pregnancy and disease. * Yes, you can date (which is all you said you were doing) if you have your parents permission to do so. Reaching the age of sexual consent does not give a minor the right to date whomever you want to despite parental disapproval. But, as I said, if your parents are okay with it, then you're fine.

There are no dating laws in Texas, only laws concerning sex and sexual contact. Under Texas law, for purposes of this section (22.011) a child is anyone under 17.
