Kendall Jenner Is Making Mama Proud With Her Dating Style


Kendall Jenner Kardashian sistersAdd this to things I never thought I'd say: when my daughter grows up, I hope she has as much sense as a Kardashian. OK, not exactly a Kardashian. I hope my kid has the street smarts of their little sister, Kendall Jenner. The 15-year-old half-sister of Kim and the gang may hang in Hollywood with the likes of Justin Bieber, but she's not completely snowed by fame.

The teen model got a Tweet from the Biebs himself this week, asking if she'd go out with his buddy Julian Swirsky, a 16-year-old music producer. First things first: how cute is this? Bieber may be all over little girls' bedroom walls, but he's still just a kid playing wingman for his BFF, testing the waters so Swirsky doesn't feel like a Class A chump when the hot chick turns him down. Mom in me says aww! But it's how Jenner responded that I'm really loving:

Only if you & @selenagomez join! :) #DoubleDate

Smart girl! Safety in numbers!

Listen, I'm sure a friend of the Biebs is quite the gentleman. He hangs out with a guy whose big rebellious moment was getting a Jesus tattoo for crying out loud. But the fact is Kendall has never met Julian. She has no way of judging whether he's a creeper in wildly successful teen's clothing. Even a Kardashian needs to bring backup.

Getting a date online may have lost the '90s era rep that you're just too desperate to find a date in real life (ask me why I still duck my head when people ask how I met my husband), but that doesn't mean it's any safer. Strangers are strangers. Kids you meet on Facebook and Twitter have as much of a chance of being the next date rapist as the dude who sits behind you in chemistry class. Only the guy from class is at least a known quantity. Your parents can track him down tomorrow if something happens.

Meeting someone from the online world should always happen in public with a witness along for the ride. And when those someones happen to be stalked by paparazzi and screaming tweenagers, well, you can guess it will be pretty safe.

I'd be willing to let my kid go on a double date with Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez as her chaperone, how about you?

I think the Jenner girls are beautiful, as their sisters are. I happen to liek the Kardashia/Jenner family. They seem down to earth and very supportive of each other. Some of the things they say are raunchy, but they honestly love each other and stick together through thick and thin.

Nope. Same rule as my kids "if he wants to meet me he is welcome to come hang out at my house while my parents are home" after a few "parlor dates" then they can group date.

Kardashian/Jenners = train wreck going somewhere to happen. I will be so happy when they disappear.
