If there is any type of sexual contact with someone under 15 the older person can be prosecuted. I would advise you wait until she/he is of age to date especially if the other person is 18 or older.

Where do 17 and 18 year olds go on dates?

Well, theyd go to movies, bowling, or other places that are date-appropriate. Normally, it is about cost since 17 and 18-yr olds are still in high school. There could be school dances or other things. I am sure you can research date options. The question seems to be very vague… sorry. Why not?
