The 18 year old in this case is me, a FEMALE. I don't know if that makes a difference or not.
The 17 year old is HIM.
And so basically, there is this 17 year old dude who comes to my work a lot to cash his checks. (He has a job, which is why he cashes the checks), and at first he kept ending up coming to me to cash them by accident, just because he always came later in the night, and a lot of times I work mildly later shifts. (Never past 11 though, but by 10:30 ish most the other cashiers have long gone home, so they only have two lanes open because that's all that is needed).
But then this guy continued to come to my lane, even when there was someone in front of him at my lane, and the other cashier was open. Every time he comes over he flirts relentlessly, and it's gotten to the point that he just shows up at random times with like one item (usually something like a soda that he could have easily gotten from a vending machine in the front), and waits in line, and asks me out on a date. Every, single, time. I actually do kinda like him, but he's a full year younger than me. (I know this because I have to see his ID when I cash his checks and yeah, it's on his license).
So would it be okay to accept him on a date even though I'm 18 (a legal adult) and he's still just 17?

OMG, I really can't understand why it is such an issue in America, I really can't. It's just one year! It's absolutely nothing! Of course it's okay. If the gap was 2 or 3 years it would be okay too. Just because a piece of paper says that a 17 is a minor it doesn't mean that they're unable to what older people do, this is bullshit.
I know that there are legal issues depending on where you live, but dating isn't sex and it doesn't necessarily have to involve it. So, if you wanna date him: do it. He'll be 18 soon anyway.0
