That depends on where hamilton is. Regardless of location, it's legally okay to date at any age. but sex is governed by certain laws, which if broken can lead to probation, jail time and/or registration as a sex offender. you are clearly an adult, but whether or not you can legally have sex with a 17-yr-old girl depends on your state of residence. Check out for more info.

If you mean Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, the age of consent is 14, so you two are legally old enough to consent to sex.
