Starring in a hit TV show hasn't exactly done wonders for Kit Harington's love life. Appearing in Glamour's April 2013 fashion feature with model Sara Sampaio, the 26-year-old Game of Thrones actor reveals what he looks for in a potential girlfriend.

"She's got to be funny. I like a girl who does not take me seriously, you know? It's important to be able to laugh at each other," the single star says. "And I like a girl who eats. I much prefer that she order the burger."

Harington even has the perfect date in mind for his dream girl. "You don't want to seem too eager, too romantic," he cautions. "Otherwise, it just looks a bit tryhard. But I do think a first date should be intimate. So I'd choose a nice dinner somewhere cozy, not too crowded, with good wine."

Of course, not every moment can be planned. Recalling his worst date ever, the English actor tells Glamour, "I chose a really bad restaurant once. It was masquerading as good French cuisine, and it was dreadful. But I think as long as you acknowledge that you know it's bad, then it's all good."

Though he's unattached in real life, Harington's Game of Thrones character, Jon Snow, is romancing Rose Leslie's Ygritte. If the fictional couple were dating in modern times, the actor imagines, "I think they'd be exactly the same. She'd still be taking the piss out of Jon, and Jon would still be getting angry about it. And secretly quite enjoying it!"
