And even though the story is deeply rooted in fantasy, still Game of Thrones has manages to teach us important lessons about life in the real world.

Ned Stark’s death came as a shocker to many. But the man should have known better than trusting the likes of Littlefinger.

Jamie might have thought that he did the right thing to hide his relationship a secret yet the seasons of Game of Thrones have gone on to prove the fact that his past has not left him. In fact it wasn’t undone by his feeble attempt to kill Bryan.

Sansa Stark’s fell in love with the wrong guy and since then she has paid the price of with the life of her family. With no one by her side, her life changed for the worst the day she decided to marry Joffrey and the recent mistake of trusting Littlefinger and not to forget that her most recent mistake of marrying Ramsay might just cost her, her own dear life.

6. Teenagers always cause trouble

Game of Thrones wouldn’t have been the same if it hadn’t been for King Joffrey who was drunk on power. And don’t even get me started on the amount of trouble he caused.

8 Things Women Hate About Men!

“Men will be men” is an excuse that men all over the world use to cover their ass. Yet still that doesn’t give them a pass to do what they want. Women in general have a long list of annoying habits that men have. And if by chance you ask them to compile it you will have an unending list of things that they hate and you’d eventually have one extensive collection of cons.

d

Here are top 8 things that men do that we as women collectively hate and men often than not, don’t even realize they do them.

1. Adjusting their privates
Yes, there I said it!! Now it isn’t that you have just grown out of after puberty. Men have a lot of fascination with what lurks beneath and they can spend a lot of time down there to ‘sort the boys out.’ But please, even if it may just be for the purposes of comfort but it is something that women time and time again have complained about. STOP DOIING it in public, it isn’t the most hygienic practice!!

2. Poor hygiene
Now let me just spell it out, this a BIG no no. Men, please for the love of god, wear nice cologne and deodorant 24/7. Cologne is in no way a replacement for soap and water. A good scent is a natural aphrodisiac and we LOVE it. And if you didn’t know, it is one of the first things a woman notices in a man. So invest on the perfect cologne.

3. Never taking directions
What is with men when they feel that they are the best drivers in the world? It’s like they have an in built GPS system and they know directions to everywhere. So, chill and understand that it’s ok to take directions sometimes! Trust me, it’s better than getting lost or being late!!

4. Forgetting
“Men are bad with dates and also at remembering just about anything in general” but WHY? Women absolutely loathe it when you forget. Although we may forgive you for the occasional forgotten detail, but it is not that okay when you make it a habit. But forgetting something important, like dinner plans, or worse, an anniversary or birthday is a disaster. Is just a big no!! Put a reminder in the phone on email anywhere but just try!!

5. Ogling
Let me just clear this once and for all. Women absolutely DESPISE catching their men ogling other women. It’s not that women don’t ogle, we do too, but there is a certain level of subtlety involved. Try at least be more discreet about it.

6. Cockiness
Women in general do not want anything to do with a cocky guy. Why? Because cocky guys are the number one cheaters and this is an established fact. Women know that cocky guys are secretly insecure as people so they feel the need to overcompensate. Try and be let’s just be real, that should work!

7. Selective hearing
We know that men are completely incapable of multitasking and even scientists have demonstrated the same. So pretending to watch a program while your wife or girlfriend is attempting to initiate a conversation will never end well. Because in this scenario, the TV usually wins. And pretending to listen to her or selectively listening to what she is saying is more annoying to women than just not listening at all.

8. Talking about your ex
Nothing can be a bigger put off that constantly taking about your ex. Talking about the ex is a “NO GO” area. Never ever do it. Mentioning your ex is a lose-lose situation. If a by chance this topic comes up try and not get into the details. It will be good for you only in the long run, trust me.

What Makes A Guy Reliable?

The search for ‘Mr/Miss Right’ take a long time. Some are lucky to find them soon and some keep looking their entire life. However, a chance meeting with someone changed my perspective completely. Recently, I met my seven year old niece after a long time. We got chatting and one of the first things that she told me was that she is in love!

She went on to say that she has found the perfect guy in her class. Dumb struck and completely caught off guard, I looked at the smiling girl standing in front of me confessing ‘how she found it’. And who at the age of seven managed to do what many have yet to do or in I should say “yet to find”.

So I quizzed my niece further more and asked her what’s so nice about this guy? She smiled once again and said that “he is looks like Ranbir Kapoor”. So he is the one.

I just realized that when I was her age perhaps even I would have had the same frame of mind. At that time looks seem to get all your attention. From one shiny new thing we move to the other. As that what our attention span is, when we are young.
During our teens, what women go through is what I would like to call a bad boy phase. Rugged and “cool” this guy will make you go weak in the knees. When the hormones are the driving force he is all that you can think of. And like my seven year old girl think “he’s the one” and you too think that you have found your perfect guy.
After a couple heartbreaks you get to know how he wasn’t the one. And then begin pondering on “what makes a guy reliable?”
As women we want and look for simple things in our partner. I ended up asking all my friends the same thing and got varied answers. What I got is a long list of “What makes a guy reliable?” But one fundamental thing was the same.
In times when lying has sort of become the simplest resort. Honesty in a person comes as a surprise and leaves you spellbound. So, honesty in a guy is the key thing that makes him reliable. After being through a bad boy phase you expect your guy to be first and foremost honest. The sense of honesty makes you believe and helps build trust.
A guy who is vocal about he feels and does, is something that all women want. The list of things that make a guy reliable is long but if the most fundamental ones are right some how the rest of the list automatically falls into place.
