Yes. I have several female friends who are single and in their 30s and have completely unreasonable expectations: Handsome, wealthy, tall, etc. Nothing gets mentioned about a man being kind, funny, generous or interesting. It will simply depend on how high they set their standards. If they set them too high then it's perfectly conceivable that they'll end up being single for the rest of their lives. If they have more realistic expectations, this almost certainly won't happen.
