Jana Duggar, 30, admits she worries she is still single



Jana Duggar is the oldest single Duggar kid and she continues to live at home.

The unmarried 30-year-old talks about her single status on tonight's episode of Counting On

She admits she often gets questions about why she hasn't found the one.

She doesn't think she's picky, but people think there must be something 'wrong' with her — and she sometimes wonders if it's true:

"Most of my siblings have gotten married really young," she says. "Some people are like, 'Are you picky?' I'm like, 'I don't think so.'"

Her friend chimes in and says, "Or they're like, 'What's wrong with you? Why are you still single?'" Jana continues jokingly, "'Yes! And then I think wait... 'Oh my, is there?'"

Jana admitted in July that she 'longs' to be married

I mean, I'm 38 and single...lol (I would like a relationship but I just don't know how to date or find anyone.)
Look at all us singles hehe

I'm single rn. Yeah it can be lonely, but at the most part I'm enjoying it. No one to answer to, no one to consider in all my decisions. I had to ask myself the other day, "Do you want a partner that you can accept the good and bad of while also asking them to accept you and your flaws, or do you want a movie where after yall kiss everything fades to black?" I def want 1, so I'm willing to be picky and patience if that means I get to at least be with someone I like
Jana honey, look at the bumbling fools your sisters are married to.

everything about this family depresses me
Damn. I’m 30 and have never even been in a relationship. It’s been a mix of anxiety and a horrible lack of self confidence about my weight plus not being too bothered to try to meet someone. I’ve moved a lot but I think I’m finally settled. but also the anxiety about basically being Drew Barrymore in Never Been Kissed is all I think about when contemplating trying to date or find someone.
Welcome to the club.

Just turned 31 and I cannot see myself being married at all...yet.
The pressure to do so, especially on women is so destructive and sad.
Leave us alone and let us live our lives in peace.
If I understand the Duggar dynamic, her being unmarried isn't really her choice.
Yeah, I always got the impression that her parents would have set up a courtship if they wanted her married. I think they have made the conscious choice to keep her around because she is the primary caretaker for the younger children. It's sad.
I get her but I also get at 30 we're still somehow young.
I was single for most of my twenties because of a mixture of super low self-esteem, working on my body image, and having constant anxiety about getting pregnant or contracting STIs after a scare in my early twenties. I had an absolute wreck of a relationship when I was 29 (only lasted a few months, but it felt life-ruining at the time) and decided I was never going to date again. I spent about a year spiraling out, then decided to move on to the casual thing on Tinder. Months after that, I matched with a guy that I actually really liked and finally mustered up the courage to allow myself to try being happy in a relationship instead of constantly feeling like I was destined to be alone in the worst possible way (a way in which I agonized over all of the things I felt like I did wrong to end up single for years and then in a relationship with a guy who was so fucked up he kept unintentionally emotionally abusing me). I actually spent the first 6 months or so in constant anxiety because it felt like a relationship that I could settle into for life, and that scared the shit out of me.

Neither of us are the marrying type, but we've been together for a couple of years now and are super happy. And because of logistics with exes and such, we could not have met and dated any earlier than we did, so waiting until my thirties to find my first healthy, serious relationship was A+ and would recommend.
Our stories are super similar. It's great to know there's hope for me if I just put myself out there a bit more haha. All the best. <3
I wonder about that with myself. What is wrong with me that I am still alone.

But her situation is worse, because next to the stigma of being single, her culture has only one goal for women. To have as many babies as possible.
