is it ok for a 17 year old boy to date a 14 year old girl

No, I think 14 and 17 is too much of an age gap, especially when you are this young. The 14 year old is too young, and too immature, compared to the 17 year old, who has been exposed to a lot more. A 17 year old may also have completely gone through puberty, while a 14 year old is still accepting their body and learning to be older.

well if its clean it should be fine. as long as there both mature about it and they don't have sex it should be ok. even tho there younger tan each other. you exclaim that a 30 year old and a 33 year old should not go out.

this is not a sexual relationship

Sexual or Romantic?
Specify, because one is good practice, and the other leads to teenage pregnancy. As long as it's being
monitored by mature and responsible adults, I think there is no harm, right?

But yeah, specification required.

I don't agree, but the legitimacy of the relationship depends on the age of majority, say if you have a 17 and a 14 year old with a legal age of 16, I would not agree, as when the 17 year old turns 18, the 14 year old may remain 14 or turn 15, making it an illegal relationship

I totally agree. If they keep it pure, I dont see a problem.

If they both agree to it, it's fine. Though they shouldn't "sleep" together until both are over 18.
