When Jana Duggar joined Instagram last week many Counting On fans suspected that the oldest Duggar daughter was finally courting. While it is only a matter of time before Jana starts a relationship, her sister, Jessa Duggar, revealed that she hasn’t started dating just yet.
After Jana’s first post on Instagram, fans speculated that it was a sign that she had started courting someone. Jessa took to the comments section to deny the rumors, though she did tell fans that Jana is taking applications for a potential mate.

“She’s not in a relationship,” Jessa assured fans on social media. “But it anyone is interested, please send all applications to me. I will check them out thoroughly.”
Ahead of the new season of Counting On, Jessa confirmed the rumors that she is pregnant with her third child with husband Ben Seewald. According to Radar Online, Jessa also revealed that Jana’s new Instagram account is purely coincidental and does not mean she is in a relationship.
As Counting On fans are aware, the Duggars usually do not get their own social media accounts until they have started dating or tie the knot. Contrary to popular belief, Jessa revealed courting is not a prerequisite for having social media in her family.
Jana opened her first Instagram account a week before her 29th birthday. Fans have been waiting a long time for Jana to start courting, which is why the dating rumors ramped up after she opened an account.
The Counting On star’s first post featured a photo of Jessa’s two boys, Spurgeon and Harry. After the post, Josh Duggar’s wife, Anna, welcomed her to social media while fans also expressed their excitement for future posts.

Jana has been linked to several men over the years. This includes her childhood friend, Caleb Williams, who has never confirmed the rumors that they are courting.
With most of Jana’s sisters marrying at a young age, Jana Duggar recently admitted that she is waiting patiently for love to find her. Hopefully that will happen sooner rather than later.
Jessa Duggar and the rest of her famous family return in new episodes of Counting On February 26 on TLC.
