Ive done some research but I am still very confused. What would happen if we did date when he turned 18? Your boyfriend could already be looking at criminal charges. If you want to know if something of this magnitude is legal, you (or more importantly HE) needs to ask a licensed attorney - especially since Florida is VERY tough on those who commit sex crimes against children.
Bear in mind: If you can't have sex until you turn 18...well, it's not going to be possible to have sex if he is in prison... (2) The provisions of this section do not apply to a person 16 or 17 years of age who has had the disabilities of nonage removed under chapter 743.

What makes high school relationships less than straight forward is a concept known as “Age of Consent.” The age of consent is the age in which one can legally be consent to have sexual relations.
The age of consent in New York City is seventeen years old.

As with everything involving sex, the important thing is to be responsible, respect your self and your partner, and never rush into any relationship without considering the consequences.
If you have any questions or concerns about a relationship you are in, sexual or not, seek the advice of a responsible adult.
This is just another complication that teenagers need to keep in mind when entering into a relationship, especially as they get older.
