Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald may be the hot new couple on 19 Kids And Counting, but Jessa is by no means the only Duggar in the midst of courtship. Jill Duggar is also pursuing a relationship with an eligible young man — she’s currently courting Derick Dillard!
Although Facebook fans appreciate the Duggars’ conservative approach to courtship, they may be surprised to learn that Jill Duggar and her current beau Derick Dillard were introduced online! Apparently, Jim Bob and Derick worked side by side on a missionary project in Nepal. Jim Bob, recognizing Derick as an excellent prospect for Jill, introduced the two via Skype. Jill and Derick hit it off right away and continued conversing online until they were finally able to meet in person.
It wasn’t easy for Jill to hold off on meeting her dream guy, but she told People that she was still able to foster a close relationship with Derick. “We got to know each other in the first few months pretty quickly. I was in love with someone I had never met in person, but we really knew each other well.”
Once she finally met him in real life, Jill was more convinced than ever that Derick was a true Mr. Right. ”I was really impressed with his character and I was surprised how much we have the same vision and life goals.”
Last night’s episode of 19 Kids And Counting largely focused on Jessa’s relationship with Ben. Twitter fans are already anticipating a similar episode all about Jill and Derick’s courtship. Perhaps a double wedding is in 19 Kids And Counting’s future!
