no - single life is meant for church religious (albeit: priests, the pope, bishops, cardinals, brothers, nuns, monks, etc.). I believe there's at least someone out there of opposite gender for everyone non-religious.

If i thought so i wouldnt be here so I hope not. Life is all about ur family not your brothers or sisters family. But its really hard to find people to actually meet up with....i cant understand the reticence of men to meet....anyone any ideas on this??

Definately. For others its a lifelong commitment a close relative to celibacy, but for others its transitional. Just like other vocations, we need divine providence to sail through.We struggle with challenges associated with it and are called to make the best of this situation.
