Some opinions by Wiki Answers contributors: well i dont think it is wrong but if you two really love eachother, you can wait until you are at least 18.4 years starts to not be that big of a difference when you get older so my advice is to wait until you are at least 18. No, there is no problem with it as long as there is no sex involved, when the 16 year old turns 18 they can have sex.They will get into trouble with the law if they want to be involved with you as you are underage at 16.If you really wish to be dating now then you ought to date someone much closer to your own age and if there isn't anyone around, then wait until you're 18. Plentyoffish dating forums are a place to meet singles and get dating advice or share dating experiences etc.
However, the age of consent is 18 years where the sexual activity "exploits" the young person -- when it involves prostitution, pornography or occurs in a relationship of authority, trust or dependency (e.g., with a teacher, coach or babysitter).
Unless both the 18 year old and 16 year old are students dating while both are in high school, their dating will be considered very socially unacceptable and suspect.
Usually, when a person graduates high school, he or she stops dating anyone who is still in high school.
I found a website that had the current Canadian law on the age of consent, but it didn't make total sense to me.
What I got out of it was that as long as both parties are 16 and willing, it's fine. Post the link to that website so people can read it for themselves.
