It is weird to be single for life, yes. Not that there's anything wrong with it.

Nothing weird about choosing to remain happily single for life.

Plenty of people have no time or desire for a relationship
Nor a partner or monogomous arrangement and have no wish to enter into any commitments including emotional ones.

Many people know that their personal circumstances or lifestyle preferences are not compatible with ever having a partner, biological family or calm & happy close relationship.
Prefer ons, no strings casual sex arrangements or to focus on other ambitions.
My uncle went down this path and had no regrets.

How old are you? Unless you are very old and likely to (put this politely pass away soon) you still have time. Besides being single is not a bad thing either. I loved my single years - and really miss the freedom my your married.

Some people do.

The question is are you happy to remain single for the rest of your life? If not, then you need to start telling yourself that you'll find someone some day.

Here's something that the genius who gave (or burdened) us with Ford Cars once said:-

Whether you think you can, or you can't... you're probably right
Seriously, think about it for a second.

I would much rather be single for life than be in a relationship with someone who isn't right for me just so other people don't think I'm weird.

Not universally, but definitely in some countries. It is a big issue in Japan, for example.

Yes.
Particularly in large western nations like the usa & uk and asian countries like china, india, japan and the philippines.

Many choosing this route due to much less social pressure to conform to the traditional spouse and two children model against their own lifestyle preferences or better judgement.
Plenty due to a combination of antinatalist attitudes and obsessions connected with 'saving the environment by slashing climate change' activism.
