It's no surprise that Shameless has taken Netflix by storm. College students have found a recent obsession with it, especially college girls and their love for the infamous Lip Gallagher. Lip, the second eldest of the Gallagher clan, is an irresistible bad boy who would do anything for his family, no doubt about it. After watching a few episodes, it's easy to see why he's every girl's favorite. With Valentine's Day approaching, every girl is looking to find that "perfect valentine," but to be honest, we would be more than happy with Lip Gallagher. Although the reasons are endless, here's 13 reasons why Lip Gallagher would make the perfect valentine:

1. He's super smart.

He may not care much about school, but he definitely has the brains without even trying... something we all envy but love at the same time.

2. He's the ideal bad boy.

He smokes, he drinks, he swears and he skips school often, but that makes him even more attractive.

3. He says whatever he thinks.

No matter how bad it is, he's never afraid to speak his mind.

4. He's protective.

He watches out for his younger siblings, and he even takes Liam to college with him when Fiona is in prison. He may not always make the best decisions, but he does protect the ones he loves.

5. He never gives up.

When the going gets tough, he gets tougher.

6. He puts his family first.

He lets his little brother stay in his college dorm, finds Ian in a strip club to bring him home and gives Debbie advice about boys. What more could a girl ask for?

7. He's irresistible.

Curly tousled hair and bright blue eyes...

8. He's very honest.


Even when you don't want to hear it, you know he'll speak the truth.

9. He proves everyone wrong.

Even though he resembles Frank more than he wants to admit, he's more responsible than his father will ever be. When he goes away to MIT, he still supports his family and makes sure everyone is taken care of.

10. He'll always be there for you.

No matter how far away from home he is, you can always count on Lip.

11. He's nice to look at.

Need I say more?

12. His style.

He doesn't put any effort into how he looks, making him even more attractive.

13. You can't help but love him.

...and that's why Lip Gallagher would make the perfect valentine.
