Duggar family fans heard just over a year ago that Lawson Bates shared a flirty comment on Jana Duggar’s Instagram. However, he denied any sort of romance. But that doesn’t stop fans from hoping. Now, they persist in urging Lawson to date Jana following his Valentine’s Day post.
Duggar fans react to Lawson Bates’ The Bachelor-style Valentine’s Day post
Taking to Instagram, Lawson Bates showed a photo of him all dressed up in a suit, holding a long-stemmed red rose just like The Bachelor. He captioned it with, “Hi, I’m late for Valentine’s Day 🤦🏻♂️.” However, he noted that it “seems [his] girlfriend is too 🤷🏼♂️.” Finally, he wrote, “FYI, your rose is wilting so pls make yourself known ASAP.” Teasing, his sister, Carlin Bates Stewart noted, “Bahahaha 🤣 Caption goals 🙌🏽.”
Meanwhile, Lawson’s mom felt there’s just “no one good enough.” Duggar fans chipped in, and once again, they urged Lawson to date Jana Duggar. Recall that Jana’s waiting for Mr. Right to come along. One fan tagged Jana and said, “she’s one of the amazing women that truly good for you. You better make a way to get her. 💯💯💯💯.” Another person who tagged Jana suggested she “pray on this.”
Previous suggestions that Lawson and Jana should date
TV Shows Ace reported in January last year that Lawson replied to a post by Jana with “three smiling emojis.” Well, it takes nothing more than that to get fans hopeful for a relationship. After all, they both come from large families, both feature on reality TV shows, and both hold strong religious beliefs. Also, the Duggars and the Bates’ family have known each other for years.
But when rumors started in January 2019 that the couple might be interested in each other, Jana denied it. Lawson also seems to just like her rather than want a dating relationship with her. Cheatsheet noted that on the Valentine’s post, that doesn’t stop fans urging them into a partnership. They cited one follower who wrote, “I just feel like he and Jana Duggar will be perfect for each other. They are both so passionate about the same things.'”
Jana Duggar seems happy at home, fans despair for a life partner
Fans of TLC’s Counting On notice that Jana always seems quite serene. In fact, she’s getting on now, and hit the 30 years old mark. That’s absolutely ancient in terms of Duggar culture where most girls marry straight out of school if possible. Previously, Jana dated a few people but seems content to just help raise her younger siblings, work in the gardens and stay at home with Jim Bob and Michelle.
What do you think about fans persisting in hoping that Lawson Bates and Jana end up as a couple? Do you think if it were to happen, they already had plenty of opportunities to make that a reality? Sound off your thoughts in the comments below.
