Today's tropes is the Tall, Dark And Handsome
https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/TallDarkAndHandsome

For men, there seems to be one main perceived ideal: Tall, Dark, and Handsome. Sometimes, it's a Tall, Dark, and Handsome Stranger.

Tall, Dark, and Handsome Stranger was a pulp fiction trope, particularly in mystery novels. Romance novels still play it straight sometimes. This then led to a Tall, Dark, and Handsome casting trope for leading men: Clark Gable, etc. This is also one of the defining attributes of the Latin Lover stereotype. A tall and handsome black man can be described as such too, though anyone with the height and dark hair can pull it off.

Also, I'm putting a lock on trope nominations for right now.

The amount we have as is will already get us to about 150, and to be completely honest, I don't know how long this topic will end up going on for. At the least, I'm going to get through to topic 150.
