Some states thats legal, but its certainly not a good idea. 17 and 24 are pretty far apart as far as life experience is concerned considering one of you is most likely in high school and the other has most likely finished college. Its just a little hard to have much common interest at those stages.
If the 24 year old is the guy, people will say that it is wrong, she is too young for him, and he is trying to take advantage of her just to have sex. I'm not saying that is always the reason why a 24 year old guy dates a 17 year old girl, but that is what people will say.
I was 17 dating a 23 year old. Everyone had something to say all negative. Telling me I was too young and too immature. Well they were right I feel silly now to have thought it would work when we were both in clearly different stages of life.
