Is it illegal for a person over 18 to talk to a person under 18 on social media as just friends?

I recently joined a social media website and it uses usernames rather than your actual names and this teenage boy sent me a message and I'm a 21 year old female. We're just texting on the site. I'm really only texting him cause he's really sweet and we're friends on there but I want to know if it's off limits completely to text minors online or if it's okay as long as your not a predator? I have no intentions of ever meeting him or giving him my name either btw.

Of course.
You can also call them on the phone, email, write them a letter, or even talk to them on the street.
Just assume that their parents are reading over their shoulder, and take care with what you say. Assume anything you type is being recorded. Remember that, and as long as it's harmless chat it's not illegal.
Same as you can answer questions here with a 14 year old.
