When I first moved to Hamilton four years ago, I had no idea how many adventures this city would have for me, and how it would help me grow into the person I am. But I wasn’t always as connected to the city as I am today; I moved here not knowing anyone who lived here, so I used Tinder dates as excuses to explore new restaurants and bars. Over the years I’ve managed to get around – literally – and have ended up all over the city with Tinder baes, meaning I have lots of history with locking lips throughout the 905 area code. Here are some spots I’ve been kissed and the stories that went with them… (I’ve definitely been kissed in more than five spots, but most of the time I just make out at my place hahaha).
If I recall correctly it was the summer after my first year of university when I matched with a cute redheaded Irish comedian, on Tinder. We connected instantly and flirted our way into planning drinks downtown. I was first dipping my toes into submissiveness at the time, and that paired well with his naturally dominant personality. He ordered me to wear a dress with no panties. Upon him picking me up, he made me spread my legs while leaning against my front door in the daylight so he could inspect me to see if I had followed his orders. We made our way downtown and had drinks at Two Black Sheep, a hip cocktail and oyster bar, before taking a stroll to Gore Park. We shared an iconic kiss in front of the fountain, leading us to decide to make our way back to mine.

I planned a welcome home party for myself when I arrived back from my travels last summer. It was a weird night that resulted in a variety of plot offshoots, but the one relevant to this blog post was that I got very drunk while dancing with my friends at the local dance bar, Sous Bas. By some miracle, I ended up making out with someone and getting fingered in the ally outside, which I say is a miracle because I NEVER hook up or even flirt/kiss guys when I’m out drinking. And getting fingered in an ally? Gosh.
One of my favourite little casual bars in the Hamilton, the Brain, has been a place of many dates and adventures. If you follow me on Instagram, you may recognize the name from the number of times I take selfies and Stories in one of the bathrooms, which has a particularly perfect ledge to be fucked on. Now that hasn’t happened yet (it needs to happen soon though), but I have smooched a cute boy in the establishment over ciders. I went on a date with the bearded archer after flirting on Instagram for a couple of weeks. I really wanted to see the new Star Wars movie so I asked him to accompany me. We saw the movie, headed to the Brain, and passionately made out before coming back to mine for a fuck. Quality evening indeed.
One of my first FWB’s was someone that I went to school with, so while I didn’t live on campus at all, I did spend some time in the residences. I remember one particular evening when his roommate was working a night shift, so I went over to hang out. We fucked and he ended up coming on my face, getting his semen in my eyes! It hurt so much and then he said to me “do you feel them swimming in there?” EW I hated it!!
One year ago today (so funny, I didn’t even plan it this), I went for a spontaneous drive with my then friends with benefits, bearded woodsman. He hadn’t lived in Hamilton long but loved the outdoors, so I suggested a local waterfall to go check out at dusk (fun fact Hamilton is the waterfall capital of the world). When we walked through the forest to get to the falls, we noticed we were surrounded by thousands of fireflies lighting up the night. It was beautiful. When we reached the base of the waterfall, we couldn’t keep our hands off each other and started one of the hottest make outs of my life to date. If I recall correctly we didn’t necessarily have the intention of participating in any frisky business, but I ended up on my knees, sucking his cock as water sprayed on us from the falls. It was an absolutely beautiful moment. Oh plus it was my birthday, so it made it all the more special.
Do you have any fave spots around your city that you like to make out or go on dates?
