      Illinois

    • 2mo

      Age of consent is 17 in Illinois, as long as it's not your teacher or doctor or somethings like that.

      Note people are talking about sex. There are no laws about dating.

  • Well, there was a girl age 17 dating a 19 year old guy and he is a adult
    I do believe the laws call for anyone age 17 to date age 21 only it
    depends on your parents and how you both view things and laws.

  • Depends where you are.

    In the UK there is nothing wrong with it. The age difference might course problems with parents or activities (17 you can't drink) but it's not uncommon for early 20's to date teens. My last girlfriend was 18(I was 21 at the time am now 22).

  • Well if ur under 18 and dating someone over 18 then yes it is illegal yet I have a ton of friends that do it and say "technically it's not cuz we're in "love" so legally yes it's illegal but if your in "love" and think that way then sure but if you about to turn 18 then just keep it on the down low till u turn 18
