The night is dark and full of hotties. Some are dead. SPOILERS AHEAD, FOLKS.

Posted on

42. Ramsay Bolton

Rape, murder, patricide, infanticide, and general psychopathy... I mean, did you really expect Ramsay to be anywhere besides the bottom of this list?
HBO

41. Grand Maester Pycelle

Maester Pycelle is a lecherous old man who should really be taken off the dating circuit ASAP.

40. Ilyn Payne

He beheaded Ned Stark. Plus, his name sounds like the punchline of a bad joke.

39. The High Sparrow

As much as I hated Cersei (at the time), what the High Sparrow did to her was horrific and, frankly, does not speak well for his treatment of women in general. Steer clear, unless you're into religious fanatics.

38. The Mountain/Gregor Clegane

Another psychopath with a tendency towards violence. Plus, he's sort of a zombie?

37. Beric Dondarrion

While the eyepatch is kind of sexy, the constantly dying and coming back to life thing sounds like a bit of a drag.
HBO

36. Petyr Baelish

Well, he pushed his wife through the Moon Door just so he could hook up with Sansa and live out his teenage-dream crush on her mother, Catelyn. Honestly, he just doesn't seem very trustworthy.

35. Gendry

Oh, Gendry. The oh-so-fine blacksmith and bastard son of Robert Baratheon. He honestly seems like a decent guy — the only downside is that no one knows where he is, so getting ahold of him might be kind of difficult.

34. Arya Stark

A great choice, if you're into long-distance relationships. That notwithstanding, looking for a relationship is probably the last thing on Arya's list. In fact, pretty sure it wouldn't even make it on the list.

33. Cersei Lannister

Lol. Pretty sure she only has eyes for her brother. And everyone else she has been married or engaged to has ended up dead or jailed, so...
HBO

32. Ellaria Sand

After the rather graphic way her beloved Oberyn died, don't expect Ellaria to feel anything except an all-consuming desire for vengeance for a long, long while. And now that she's presumably taken over the Dornish throne, I'd expect her to be much too busy for any kind of relationship.

31. Meera Reed

Does she even have a personality? Does she even have a purpose besides dragging Bran to "safety"? She also basically left Hodor to die, so definitely a few points off for that.
HBO

30. Qyburn

While his loyalty to Cersei is admirable, the whole human experimentation thing can be a bit... worrisome. Def want to sleep with one eye open with this one.
HBO

29. Benjen Stark

Tall — check. Dark — check. Handsome — check. Part White Walker — check. What more could you ask for? Sure, Benjen sometimes disappears for a few years at a time, but he seems well worth the wait.
HBO

28. Jaime Lannister

Jaime is almost the whole package — literally and figuratively. Deep inside, he's a truly good person who wants to do the right and honorable thing, and, based off his relationship with Brienne, he definitely has a sweet and caring side. Plus, the haircut has done a world of wonders for his cheekbones. The only downside? He reeeally likes his sister, Cersei.

27. Theon Greyjoy

Pre-Ramsay Theon was kind of a dick. Post-Ramsay Theon no longer has a dick. Still, at least he's finally put things in perspective and has a clear idea of what path he should take, and who doesn't like a man with a plan?

26. The Sand Snakes

The Sand Snakes are a feisty bunch, and it takes a certain kind of person to handle being in a relationship with any of them. I'd give them individual spots on this list, but they seem kinda like a package deal.

25. Tommen Baratheon

He seems like a sweet (if confused) kid, but he's already married.
HBO

24. Jaqen H'ghar

Jaqen seems like the kind of guy who constantly changes who he is in order to fit in with everyone else, ya know? That could definitely get frustrating, but the ~mysterious foreigner~ thing has its appeal. Plus, he could take out any of your enemies for you.

23. Melisandre

There's no denying that Melisandre is super-hot, especially for a thousand-year-old lady. Plus, she has magical powers and will basically do whatever it takes to help you win if you're her Chosen One. But if you have kids, it's probably best to keep them away from her.

22. Bronn

Bronn is quite the charming scallywag. He can fight, he can flirt, and I'll be you he can fuck. However, I ain't saying he's a gold digger, but he certainly seems intent on marrying up.

21. Loras Tyrell

Loras is quite the catch, if you're into pretty boys. However, he seems a bit high maintenance, and is also quite the flirt. You'll probably need to be a pretty easygoing person to deal with all that PLUS the fact that he's currently in jail.

20. Jorah Mormont

TBH, Jorah seems a bit like the clingy type, but that also means that if he loves you, you'll have his unwavering, undying, sometimes suffocating loyalty. He's also got that DILF thing going on, which isn't bad.

19. Bran Stark

These boots weren't made for warging, but that's just what Bran'll do. His constant jumping from animal to animal could get annoying after a while, but it's also a pretty cool party trick. Also, Bran can see the past! And the future! And may have accidentally caused King Aerys to go mad and been the catalyst for all of the events leading up to present-day Game of Thrones!

18. The Hound/Sandor Clegane

The Hound is the classic bad boy: On the surface he's scary and intimidating, but really he's just using that to hide the pain of his past and his heart of gold. All he's waiting for is the ~right lady~ to plumb his depths ;).

17. Varys

Varys may not have hair like Gretchen Weiners, but that doesn't mean he isn't full of secrets. He'd know everything about everyone, which would make for fun conversations. However, he'd know everything about you, too, even the things you'd prefer to keep hidden.

16. Sansa Stark

Sansa is a total badass, and the rightful Queen of the North. She would probably be higher on the list if she didn't have, like, some serious trust issues to work on.

15. Yara Greyjoy

Ah, another queen on the rise. Yara is a capable leader, a loyal sister, and a huge proponent of tough love — she's going to need a woman who can keep up with her. She can be a bit of a flirt, but maybe she's just looking for the right person to sail into the sunset with.

14. Daario Naharis

Daario Naharis, aka the walking thirst trap. Like Bronn, he is something of a scallywag, except a tad more refined. Sure, he has a playboy past, but all he needs is a strong, powerful, queenly woman to keep him on his toes.

13. Davos Seaworth

A sexy, rugged, sailor of a DILF — I mean, can we please take a moment for that swoony smolder? Plus, he's so unwaveringly loyal and is so, so sweet to Shireen — TOTAL baby daddy material.

12. Brienne of Tarth

No one can rock a suit of armor like Brienne can. She'll stand by you no matter what, and will literally go to the ends of the earth for you. Plus, she sure knows how to wield a sword ;).

11. Grey Worm

Grey Worm may be missing a lil worm of his own, but that hasn't put out the fire in his heart. Just look at the intensity in his eyes! The pure passion that's just radiating from them! Honestly, he could get you pregnant just by staring at you.

10. Margaery Tyrell

Margaery is smart, she's beautiful, and she's one of the less evil people in King's Landing — talk about a winning combination. She may be married to Tommen, but, let's be honest, how long is that going to last?

9. Samwell Tarly

Sam is literally the sweetest, nicest, most caring person in Westeros, but that doesn't mean he's a total pushover — he killed a White Walker, you know. It doesn't hurt that his family is loaded, too. Unfortunately, his dad is a grade-A douche, but thankfully his mom and sister are pretty nice.

8. Gilly

Gilly is the literal definition of a woman who can do both: She looks great in wildling rags AND fancy Westerosi clothes. But, most importantly, she's an independent woman who don't need no man's opinion on what she wears.
HBO

7. Hodor

Hodor may only be able to say one word, but romance is a universal language. He's just the sweetest, gentlest hunk o' love you'll ever meet. Plus, Hodor is a real gentleman: He'll always hold the door for you.

6. Tormund Giantsbane

YOU JUST KNOW by looking at Tormund that he's gonna be absolutely wild(ling) in bed. He may have that woodsy, lumbersexual thing going on, but I just get the feeling that deep down he's actually a giant, gingery teddy bear.

5. Missandei

Hullo, who doesn't want to date someone who can speak nineteen different languages? I mean, you can basically travel anywhere you want without any worries. And, as an added bonus, Missandei looks great in crop tops, which are all the rage these days.

Remember that time when those prostitutes gave Tyrion back his money because Pod was just that good? Yeah.

3. Jon Snow

Nobody broods better than Jon Snow. Or looks better lying dead and naked on a table. Or wearing a furry bear cape. Jon may have, like, a million problems of his own, but he'll always let you come first, if ya know what I mean.

2. Daenerys Targaryen

Dany Targaryen: Queen of Meereen, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, Mother of Dragons, Breaker of Chains, Protector of the Realm, etc, etc. She's the HBIC and definitely not someone you want to fuck around with, because she will literally burn you to death with her fire-breathing dragon babies. That being said, I'm sure once you get to know her, you'll find out she has a great personality.

1. Tyrion Lannister

Tyrion is funny, and funny men are pretty difficult to come by. He's also smart (probably the smartest person in Westeros), a natural diplomat, and he pretty much single-handedly saved King's Landing in the Battle of Blackwater. As awesome as Dany is, Tyrion is the one who really deserves to sit on the Iron Throne, and who doesn't love a man in charge?
