BEING ASKED ABOUT SINGLEHOOD

Jana admitted how tired she got answering that she was single and didn’t have anything yet. The oldest Duggar daughter confessed that she felt there were more things to talk about in life than her love life.

Some of Jana Duggar's fans think that she might end up having a courtship with Lawson Bates.

However, she’s not single because she doesn’t want to get into a relationship, she just hasn’t found the right man. She admitted that she noticed her singlehood mostly when she was around other couples.

The only way she survives these get-togethers is when she realizes that even though her siblings are married and they have children; they’re still just her brothers and sisters. Her 18 siblings range from the ages 10 to 32.

PEOPLE TRY SETTING HER UP

Jana also shared how she found herself coming across people who would try to get her a partner. Most of these people would try to organize dates for her because they felt bad for her situation.

She acknowledged how most of her eight siblings had gotten married while very young. The “19 Kids and Counting” former star also shared how some people thought she was difficult stating:

"Some people are like, 'Are you picky?' I'm like, 'I don't think so.'"
