The age of consent in Florida is 18 years. Florida State Statute: 794.05 Unlawful sexual activity with certain minors.-- (1) A person 24 years of age or older who engages in sexual activity with a person 16 or 17 years of age commits a felony of the second degree.

There are no laws regarding dating, but there are laws regarding sexual contact (which is not limited merely to intercourse).

There are no laws about dating in the Florida. There are laws about children having sexual contact. Some of those laws are enforced based on the age differences between the parties. If both are over the age of consent, the age difference isn't going to matter.

There are no laws about dating. In Florida the age of consent is 17. So, to be safe, anyone 17 or older would be best.

There are no dating laws in any state, only laws for when you are old enough to give consent to sex in your state. Age of consent is 18 in Florida with a close in age exemption where a person no older than 23 can have sex with a minor not younger than 16.

California has no laws about dating. There are laws regarding children being involved in sexual contact. These laws can be enforced based on the age differences between the parties. If they are over the age of consent, the age difference doesn't matter.

Dating has never been the subject of any Florida laws. Sexual activity has specific laws that vary throughout the world. Being 17 in Florida means there isn't going to be an issue in either case.

There are no laws about age and dating. The laws involve sexual activity. While the age of 16 is safe in most countries and states, in Florida it is higher.

There are no laws about dating. However, there are laws about sexual contact. And in Florida the age of consent is set at 18. But because of the age closeness, it would not be illegal.
