Why are dragons considered dangerous?
See above.

How where the dragons for Game of Thrones trained?
CGI. Sorry, they were not real. I was as disappointed as you when I found out. Bizarrely, the dragons in How to train your dragon were real. But they were wearing Mo-cap suits.

How should I react if I encounter a dragon?
Record your testament on your phone. Try to bury your phone so it will survive the fire. Do not keep it on you, it might be swallowed and digested and there will be no trace left of your whereabouts. Also, do not, under any circumstances, try to film the dragon! Dragons care about their privacy, especially nowadays with all the attention they got in media in the recent years. Please respect it. If you upset them, they might charge, and you will have no time to hide your phone before getting eaten.

If you matched a dragon on Tinder and your encounter is a first date, you might survive the encounter. But be careful. Never talk about money with dragons on a first date.

Short answer: pheromones.

What is the ideal size and configuration of a dragon’s den?
Depends on the size of the dragon, of course. And, if it’s a city or a country dragon. Dragons who fly obviously need to be able to spread and clean their wings, even in a den. So, you would have to consider that. The best thing would be to measure the dragon first. Good luck with that.

I have met and fallen in love with a dragon. When is a good time to move in together?
Congrats! First, check if you haven’t fallen for the quite common human-hiding-in-a-dragon-costume scam. If the dragon checks out, congrats (for real this time)! I still would wait as long as possible for moving together, at least until you’ve written down your last wishes.

You can only love a dragon platonically.

Being “draped” by a dragon is a whole different concept and has nothing to do with physical contact, as explained by Sasha Sychëv here: Interview Sasha, Fashion Music and Democracy (Pdf)
