When it comes to finding and keeping love, does anyone know what they're doing? Not really. So why not take a few tips from movies, television, and books? Here are 10 tested love lessons we've learned from Game of Thrones.

Note: This post contains spoilers through season four.

Size doesn't exactly matter.
Just ask Tyrion Lannister and any one of his numerous women. Or maybe check back with Oberyn Martell as soon as he's done defeating The Mountain. Oh, wait...

Some people are just naturally gifted.
Doesn't how many people you've bedded. The fact remains that some lucky folks are just naturals, like Jon Snow going down on Ygritte in a cave or Podrick Payne getting his prostitutes free of charge. Lucky bastards.

The heart wants what the heart wants.
Regardless of whether it's your crazy twin sibling who stabs kings in the back, pushes kids out of windows, and tries to win you back single-handed — literally. Or maybe crazy one is Cersei who abuses her daughters-in-law, wants to kill her youngest brother, and is really just a straight-up bitch. Scratch that, they're meant for each other.

Men are not observant.
Did you cut your hair? Have we met before? If Arya Stark can chop of her hair, ditch the dress, and have almost everyone fooled, then your man certainly isn't going to notice that new shade of lipstick.
