Question: Is a 17 year old dating a 16 year old legal?

As long as you are aware of the risks, the best judge is you. There arent any laws around being in a non-sexual relationship where one person is under 18 and the other over. Once you turn 16 its not illegal for someone to have sex with you no matter how old they are.

Is it okay to date a 17 at 16?

Yes, so long as the relationship is not sexual. The prohibition on sexual activity makes California different from many other states. California does not have a “Romeo and Juliet” law. This law allows minors of similar ages to engage in consensual sexual activity.

Can a 17 year old girl date 16 year old boy?

In New South Wales, the age of consent is fixed by law at 16 for both heterosexual and homosexual sex. It is important to understand that it is not a crime for children under 16 to have sex! The law criminalises people who have sex with under-16-year-olds.
