It’s the end of season seven next week and we cannot bear it- but when Game of Thrones is in full swing- couples have very particular viewing habits- can you relate?
You text each other throughout the day- With threats of spoilers and expressions of excitement. The dragon emoji gets a lot of use when exchanging messages.
You rush home humming the tune- You walk through the door singing- ‘duh, duh, duh, duh, duh, duh’ instead of saying ‘hello’- because you both know that traditional greetings and conversations about your day must wait.
The first one home must set it up to watch- That’s the rule- the partner who is late must first apologise, drop everything and be ready to play the game.
You both turn off your phones- You don’t favour anyone who interrupts your viewing pleasure. But you have formed meaningful relationships with people who are also fans to make sure you don’t get disturbed.
You wish your partner would look at you the way- Jon Snow looks at Dany, and Tormund looks at Brienne but alas it will never happen unless you secure some dragons or learn how to wield a sword.
You get a little twitchy downstairs- All the naked bodies and besotted glances make you want to dash off upstairs but thankfully Jorah Mormont has taught you the lesson of patience when it comes to matters of the heart.
At the end- you both look at each other mouths agape- You can guarantee that the end of each episode brings yet another cliff-hanger and just when you think that it can’t get any better- you both could catch flies as the credits roll.
You spend the following hour- Discussing the next episode- even though you are both wrong most of the time because it never goes the way you think it will.
You check twitter- Because the reactions to the show are always hilarious and you both enjoy scrolling through now nothing can be spoiled.
When the season ends- You re-watch all of the others because the thought of not having some GOT in your life for another year is too hard to contemplate.
