There are no laws regarding dating.

Answer: USA: Each state has its own age of consent laws, they vary e.g. in Alaska it is 16, Texas 17 and California 18. Therefore, in Alaska it is perfectly legal for a 16 year old to date, and be sexually involved with, someone who is 18; there is no need for parental consent. Europe: In Europe 1 country has the age of consent set at 12 (Spain); 13 have the age at 14 (e.g. Portugal, Germany); 10 have it at 15 (e.g. France, Poland); 17 have it at 16 (e.g. UK, Vatican); 1 at 17 (Eire) and 1 at 18 years (Malta). Therefore, a 16 year old could legally date - and be sexually involved with - an 18 year old in most European nations. In fact, it would be legal for an 18 year old to date someone who is 14 in Germany. Parental consent is neither necessary nor relevant. Rest of World: Other ages of consent: Japan (12), Nigeria (13), Brazil (15), India (16), Egypt (18), Indonesia (19) and Tunisia (20) Many countries and states also have what are called "Romeo + Juliet" provisions which can allow for the non-prosecution of those who are under the age of consent but engage in sexual activity. Of course, it is perfectly possible for people to date and not be sexually involved. (Please see attached links)

It's important to consider the legal age of consent in your area. Additionally, remember to prioritize communication and mutual respect in the relationship. It may be helpful to seek advice from a trusted adult or counselor to navigate any potential challenges.
