Legal Question in Discrimination Law in Texas

I have known this guy for about 3 years now and I am 15 he just turned 19 in February we are about 3 and a half years apart. Is it legal for us to date ( Boyfriend & Girlfriend wise) in Texas? We have developed feelings for each other over the years and were afraid to take the next step because we don't want to get him into trouble. And if it it illegal till what age can we date?

Dating is not illegal. Sex with a person who is under 17 is illegal, and he has no defense because he is more than 3 years older than you. Bad idea.
