Can a 19 year old boy go out with a 14 year old girl?

It isn't illegal but it is inappropriate to be dating someone who is so far from your age. If you are the 14 year old girl, you may be allowing yourself to be taken advantage of by an adult- you may not realize that your relationship (especially if you are sexually active with this person) will have a long-term effect on your mental and emotional development. I recommend dating someone within your age range- about one to two years- sometimes three, if they are under 18. If you are the 19 year old, you should consider dating someone closer to your age as well- especially if you are sexually active with this girl- you can be charged with statutory rape because she is a minor.
