i have a 15 year old asking me out and I'm wondering if it's safe to say yes and date this 15 year old with out "funny business".
Run away. Run away fast. You don’t want to be involved with underage minor at all.

No, it’s not illegal to date. There can be no sexual contact at all, and I would say that there should be no touching of the 15 year old at all. That being said, it is a terrible idea. People who are over the age of 18 should date people that are over 18. I’m not sure why this 15 year old is asking you out, but you should politely decline.

While dating is not illegal it is the inevitable sexual relations and sexually related conduct that is illegal. That being said, you need to RUN away from her as fast as you can. You might think that there will be no "funny business" but I can guarantee that a raging homornal 15 year old looking to date an 18 year old will see it differently. One thing leads to another and before you know it, you've had sexual intercourse with a minor. Then you break up with her when you realize she is an immature and unstable teenager. She gets mad and goes to the police and says you had sex? It is your word against her and who do you think the police will believe? This will not end well. Time to date adult women.
