Jana, 30, opens up in a sneak peek of Tuesday’s episode of Counting On, revealing what she’s looking for in a partner and how those requirements have relaxed over the years.
“I used to be a little more strict,” she says.
“I felt like, I just want to find someone that would either move to Arkansas, or is already from here, but I think as time has gone on, I’ve found I do love to travel more than I thought I did. So now, it’s more like, okay, if I really love the guy, I’ll follow him to the ends of the earth. I’ll want to go wherever he is. So far I just haven’t found that one.”
And while eight out of her 18 siblings have already gotten married, Jana, is happy with being single.
She then admits that she often gets questions about why she has yet to find the one. In the clip, she gets her hair done with her friend while they chat about Duggar’s love life.
“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 then jumps in, saying: “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?'”
But now, Jana says her checklist has dwindled a bit — and she is also willing to relocate for the right guy.
“When he comes, he doesn’t have to stay in Arkansas,” she says. “It’s just that I’ve got to love you so much that I will go with you.”
Counting On airs Tuesdays (9 p.m. ET) on TLC.
