    There is no law in any state that dictates who may and may not DATE. There are laws in all states as to who may and may not have sexual contact, which is NOT limited to sexual intercourse.

    Have your parents given you permission to see him?

    The age of consent in TX is 17. Sexual contact is permissible as long as it is conscentual. Your parents could file a restraining order to bar contact if the relationship is not approved of though.
