Everytime we are asked what qualities we are looking for in our future partner, some of us wish to meet someone to whom we can see ourselves personality-wise, or sometimes, we want someone who is our complete opposite because we want a dash of excitement in the relationship.
However, talks on physical appearance is surely unmissable. Aside from the good looks, some of us are also meticulous when it comes to height. Some women prefer men who are taller than them, likewise, a number of guys want their lady loves shorter than them.
Although there are instances that men are shorter than women in a relationship (and there is absolutely nothing wrong with it), studies state that traditional societal expectations and gender stereotypes have something to do with it.
Apparently, majority of us are still hanging on the old notions of femininity and masculinity. As we equate a person’s built to his or her capabilities and status, taller men are perceived to induce dominance and protection, which could possibly intimidate other guys and make his partner feel “more girly” and secured.
Besides, this type of setup is said to be highly desirable, as it intensifies physical intimacy and the compatibility of a couple. Digital youth culture magazine Thought Catalog actually asked 16 people regarding the significance of height in relationships and a majority of them prefers the customary concept.
The female respondents implied that they find guys taller than them attractive and they want to be able to strut in their high-heeled shoes without towering over their beaus because it’s kind of off.
Meanwhile, the males deem this arrangement perfect as it makes their intimate moments extra romantic and because it’s basically the norm.
To attest these are our favorite young Kapamilya loveteams, who thrill us with their unmistakable chemistry on and off-screen.
Arguably, most of us dream of having the type of connection they have, not only romantically but physically.
According to this gallery, the ladies’ heights range from 5’ to 5’6”, with Elisse Joson as the shortest and Liza Soberano as the lankiest. Whilst for the guys, Diego Loyzaga, Joshua Garcia, and Daniel Padilla look very much manly in 5’11”, and despite being the shortest at 5’6”, McCoy can thrill us with his charm and handsomeness.
We have seen them on their teleserye, movie, and commercial stints, so isn’t it cute everytime the dashing dudes enclose their gorgeous damsels to a warm embrace? Or if they have to look down slightly in order to kiss them?
The things that absolutely make us kilig-to-death!
