OK I've been talking to a 15 year old girl and might possibly be going out with her I'm 18 though in NJ is this legal for us to date but not have sex?
Is this legal?

I don't believe the state of NJ has specific statutes on an adult dating a minor. Where the state DOES define the law is in terms of anything sexual. If an adult has intercourse with a minor, even if it's consensual, it's still statutory rape. The person can face criminal charges and jail time.1

in most cases there is a age of consent law, which is somehow different than the age 18 law. In tennessee for instance, if a girl is 16+ then she can date/sleep with someone up to 4 years older than her. I know alabama has a similar law only it is 14+. So make sure you check that too.0
