Jana Duggar may have a new man in her life. Reports that John David is in a relationship with Abbie Burnett have sparked speculation that Jana is also courting someone new. Is Jana looking to date someone in the near future?
Although Jana is only 28 years old, Counting On fans have been waiting a long time for her to get hitched. After all, most of the Duggar children get married at a young age and start having children right away.
They are even taught by their parents — Jim Bob and Michelle — that starting a family is important in life and one of the reasons why women are on this earth. While Jana has remained single all of these years, there is good reason to believe that she isn’t as lonely as fans think.

According to The Hollywood Gossip, Duggar is really good friends with her longtime bestie Laura Demasie. In fact, Demasie lent a helping hand in schooling many of Jana’s younger brothers and sisters.
Demasie is so close to Jana that fans are starting to wonder if the two’s relationship goes beyond friendship. As proof, fans noted that Jim Bob said in 2017 that Jana “preferred the company of women.”
That said, there’s little chance that Jim Bob was eluding to the idea that Jana is gay. The Duggars are well-known for being super religious and Jim Bob would probably never admit that one of his kids is gay even if it were true.
After all, this is the same person who doesn’t allow his kids to date, enforces strict dress codes, and pretty much runs every aspect of their lives.
If Jana and Demasie were romantically involved, there’s little chance they would ever admit it. Unfortunately, the two would probably have to keep their romance tightly under wraps for the rest of their lives, which is extremely sad.
Of course, we can’t say for sure that Jana and Demasie are more than friends, but she should be free to love whoever she wants.
Jana has not commented on the rumors surrounding her sexual orientation. While she continues to search for romance, many fans are pushing for her to star on the next season of The Bachelorette. Whether or not that happens is impossible to predict, but fans are definitely excited about the idea.
“I’ve never watched that show, but I’d totally watch it for Jana,” one fan wrote on social media.
