The Cupid and the Stupid, or Dating tips from the Westeros Universe by Olga A.
Is it just me, or have the things recently been rather quiet on the Game of Thrones front? No exciting news, no gripping stories to hold our attention spellbound. The die-hard fans of the series retire to mundane pursuits – shopping, gardening, an odd spot of cosplay here and there. We seem to be a world away from the bloodthirstiness and intrigue of the Game – or alternatively, excitedly following the latest developments with the upcoming Star Wars continuation of the saga…
That is, or we can choose to amuse ourselves by looking at familiar subjects through a rather specific prism. One such familiar subject, of course, is dating. Whimsical, fun, agonizing or to be taken extremely seriously – perceive it as you will. One particular writer has compiled quite a few of seemingly familiar dating tips and arranged them into a Cosmopolitan-worthy, Game of Thrones-themed feast (and yes, dire wolves do make a fantabulous anniversary present, whilst raw hearts are actually nowhere as scary as an unfamiliar dish in that very trendy new fusion-cuisine hangout can be).

About Reporter: Olga A.
Hailing from the swirling mists of London, I am a freelance journalist in my free time, and a huge fan of J R Tolkien’s “Lord of the Rings,” as well as an admirer of the “Game of Thrones,” a worshipper of H P Lovecraft, a follower of R. Howard, a Star Wars aficionado and an Ursula Le Guin enthusiast. My other favourite things include Middle Eastern dance (sometimes somewhat discourteously referred to as “belly” dancing), Yoga, sunsets over the dreaming spires of Oxford and plush owls. Oh, and green tea too.
