There are plenty of tropes that make interactions between characters, and couples, stand out to us. A good height difference isn't an official one, but maybe we should make it one?
A good height difference almost determines how much a couple will stay with us, how much it will stand out, and how much promise they can have down the road.

Every iconic couple on television had some kind of considerable differences when side by side, and isn't that what it is all about?
Here are a few examples of aesthetically pleasing pairings that make you want to see them together, and who make anything more memorable because of their height difference.
Bellamy and Clarke - The 100
Where does one even begin with Bellamy and Clarke? This two aren't just partners or best friends or soulmates. But they are also all of that, wrapped up in this one relationship that you get to watch unfold while Bellamy stands tall(er) than but always right next to Clarke. No matter what they face, be it the end of the world or the prolonged stagnant plot of a current season, it is the way they interact with each other that keeps you unable to look away.
Alex and Maggie - Supergirl
Alex and Maggie may not have ended up together (yet) but on screen, they were pure magic. They worked in a perfect way and their height difference was just a cherry on top of the beautiful sundae.
Joyce and Hopper - Stranger Things
The best thing about a couple can be that first hug, which is where Joyce and Hopper come in because they mastered that a while ago. Their considerable height difference only adds to how nice it is to watch them interact together.
Tommy and Lindy - Eye Candy
These two left us too soon, but that doesn't mean they weren't epic together. Tommy and Lindy were an underrated pairing that spent their days solving cyber crimes and giving heart eyes to each other. The fact that they also looked aesthetically pleasing next to one another was just a great height coincidence, right?
Stiles and Lydia - Teen Wolf
It was clear that Stiles and Lydia were always meant to be endgame by the way they perfectly fit together.
Teresa and James - Queen of the South
It would be shocking if you haven't heard of Teresa and James already, they have quickly managed to steal fan's hearts with their chemistry. And their height difference just adds to how easy it is to appreciate them.
