Regardless of the age difference Justin Bieber, 21, and Kourtney Kardashian, 36, are rumored to be dating, which has been hearsay for months now. Despite if it's true or a PR stunt, the reality is these two need each other for different reasons. 

We have seen 2015 as a year of incredible changes and personal growth. Bieber has come into his own, and, now as a grown man, has apologized in numerous ways for his infantile past. He also released Purpose, his fourth studio album, which is his best work by far. Kardashian, in a way, has also come into a new and more mature chapter. Yes, she has three kids with her ex-boyfriend, Scott Disick, however, it feels as if she is now in the best part of her life with more certainty and clarity.

Kardashian has spent the last four or five years raising her children while also trying to keep her relationship with Disick from falling apart. Disick continues to struggle with his sobriety and responsibilities as a father. Kardashian desperately needs some R&R, and Bieber is providing that for her. 

Bieber, on the other hand, is living the luxe life with zero attachments. On the work front he's doing great, but in regards to women, Bieber is confused. One minute he is trying to get back with Selena Gomez, the next he's rumored to be partying it up with randos. Bieber needs some kind of stability. He needs some kind of wisdom and nurture from a mature woman.

For whatever it's worth, we hope Bieber and Kardashian continue to see each other. They both can greatly benefit from each other. 

And, as we mentioned before, 2015 has been a very good year for the Biebs. He has become a proper papi chulo in so many ways that we've listed below. But in case you're unaware of what a papi chulo is, here's the definition, according to Urban Dictionary: "Spanish for an attractive man, or a 'Handsome daddy'"; "a Spanish word describing an attractive male that dresses well"; and "a male Spanish pet-name; as would be 'Cutie.'" Namely it is a term of endearment; though not necessarily used solely for exclusive relationships. See examples below, just from the past week!
