Is it okay if i'm 16 and I date a 22 year old? Ima be 17 this year and I just wanted to clarify that my boyfriend will not get in trouble since I'm age of consent.
Due to your age you can date and engage in sexual activity as long as your boyfriend did not meet you through a position in your school system or some other capacity in which he was an authority figure over you. Your boyfriend cannot keep you out past curfew, away from school, etc or he could be charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
Of course, your boyfriend cannot supply you with drugs or alcohol. Also, as a minor, your parents could decide to keep you away from him if they so choose.
