23 Reasons Gordo From 'Lizzie McGuire' Is The Perfect Boyfriend

Please be my sneaky little brown noser with a hidden agenda.

Hilary Duff killed it as Lizzie McGuire on Disney Channel -- but her character would have been nothing without her BFFs Gordo and Miranda. Gordo was usually the voice of reason whenever Lizzie and Miranda got carried away with their crazy teen shenanigans.

Everyone knew Gordo had a serious crush on Lizzie, except maybe Lizzie. We watched him pine after her for three long years, until she finally realized what was up in the series' finale and at the end of "The Lizzie McGuire Movie".

In our opinion, she left him hanging for wayyy too long. David Gordon -- yep, that was Gordo's real name -- was a complete and total catch. Here's why:

  1. He puts things in perspective

  2. He covers for you when you need backup

    Gordo lied to his teacher so Lizzie could frolic around Rome with some other dude. He just wanted her to be happy, and he knew going on this insane adventure would make her happy.

  3. His excuses are awful, so you can always tell when he's lying

  4. He's a pro at witty comebacks

  5. He brings you doughnuts...

  10. He couldn't care less about what other people think

  11. He thinks about the future

  12. He gets a tiny bit jealous sometimes

    And that's a good thing. You know he cares.

  13. Because the way he handled this moment...

    Obviously, he's crushed, but he cares for her happiness enough to not be a d-ck about it.

  14. He's always, always there for you

    Lizzie, you idiot, why did you call him just a friend? You can practically hear his heart breaking in this scene.

  15. He tells it like it is...

  16. ...but he appreciates your flaws
    Disney Channel
  17. He wants you to like him back, but only for the right reasons
    Disney Channel
  18. He sees things you don't
    Disney Channel
  19. Sometimes he gets nervous around you, and it's adorable
    Disney Channel
  20. He never fails to make you laugh

  21. He knows the proper way to sign a yearbook

  22. His smile makes you swoooon

  23. He's an awesome kisser

    OK, we can't actually verify this. But Lizzie was definitely into it, so he must be a good kisser. If you ever find out for sure, let us know, will ya?
