There are more double-crossings, rumours and broken alliances in TV series Game of Thrones than you can poke a sword at! Although the denizens of the realm can still provide you with some excellent dating wisdom.

Be self-reliant and self-loving  Tyrion Lannister is witty, devious and wise. He has a thick skin because of the cruelty he suffered at the hands of his father and others. Tyrion has turned this cruel treatment into his shield. Likewise, a thick skin and a bit of courage could help you get through the dating process with a little less heartache.

Love is all about compromise Daenerys went through some tough tests with her Dothraki husband and definitely compromised on many occasions. The icing on the cake was when she stomached a raw horse’s heart. Even Khal Drogo went all gooey with love.

Just because you’re different, doesn’t mean it can’t work Ygritte: ”My dress is made from the purest silk from tralalalaleeday ” John Snow: ”I’d like to see you in a silk dress. So that I could tear it off you” Ygritte ”If you rip my silk dress, I’ll blacken your eye” Jon loves Ygritte for her strong, fierce and tomboyish nature. It’s precisely because she lacks the airs and graces of a noblewoman that he falls for her.  There’s a lesson somewhere in that.

Sometimes love transcends death and other people’s expectations Nothing says devotion like walking into your slain husband’s funeral pyre. Daenerys arose like a regal phoenix from the ashes, along with dragon protectors and some supernatural ju-ju. Lesson: we do crazy things for love, sometimes they pay off.
