I would make sure that your parents are comfortable with you seeing him before you start a dating relationship.

If he was forty and you were ten it would be legal (but that is horrible Im not condoning that! If you two do have sex he will be done for statory rape and im sure you dont want that for boyfriend so just dont be tempted and you two will be fine :) It is not illegal to date. Here, if one of the people is 18 or older and the other is at least 4 years younger, it is illegal to have sex.

If anyone finds out, the older person could be charged with rape - not be careful :) It is not illegal to go out regularly with someone, which is what dating is, regardless of the age difference.

Sending sexy snapchats, for instance, would implicate federal child pornography laws since they would be sent over the internet.

Not to mention that in the case of the snapchats, you BOTH could get in trouble.

So, all of that being said, if you and your friend would like to be involved in a romantic relationship, just make sure you're not doing anything that could get him into trouble. A 19 year old boy can date a 16 year old girl, but he cannot have any sexual contact with her or he runs the risk of being charged with sexual assault of a minor.You don't mention what your parents and his parents think about you two dating.I'm recategorizing your question as one about criminal defense because the question you're asking is whether your friend would be committing a crime by dating you.As has already been stated, the age of consent in WI is 18--meaning until you are 18 you are considered "incompetent" to consent to sexual contact.You should also note that sexual contact isn't the only thing that is off the table.Sexting--whether through words or pictures--is also off the table and is actually likely to be a bigger legal nightmare than sexual contact would be in this case.
