What are Illinois laws on dating minors?

can an 18 year old date a 15 almost 16 year old?

Answers:
Yep, sure can.

Now to clear up some very serious misconceptions:

Illinois law defines rape as committing unlawful sexual intercourse with a person, without consent from that person, usually through force or intimidation. Statutory rape consists of sexual intercourse with a male or female under statutory age; this offense may be either with or without the victim’s consent. A lack of consent can include the victim's inability to say "no" to intercourse, due to intoxication from drugs or alcohol.

Although consent is a defense to a rape charge in Illinois, mistake as to the victim’s age is usually not a defense. Rape can occur when there is a pre-existing relationship between the offender and victim and can even occur when a couple is married.

Yes. The laws apply to sex. An adult cannot have sex with a minor. The 18 year old is an adult, the 15 year old is a minor.
