According to Texas laws the legal age to consent to sex is 17 does this mean a 17 year old can date a 30 year old ?

Dating and sex are different things, but yes, a 17yo can have sex with a 30yo.

it's still a bit weird to date someone almost twice your age. there's a huge power imbalance with one being significantly older. you're at two completely different stages in life.

the 30 y/o has lived twice as long as the 17 y/o, experienced so many more things.

imo it seems like the 30y/o is taking advantage of the 17y/o
