* ''Film/MarriageItalianStyle'' has Domenico, a wealthy bachelor who enjoys a comfortable life with lots of girlfriends and hookers. He's marriage-phobic enough that his most faithful hooker girlfriend Filomena can't get him to commit, despite the fact that she's Creator/SophiaLoren. When Domenico finally does decide at age 50 to get married to a much younger girl, after 20 years of a FriendsWithBenefits relationship with Filomena, she's outraged.

* The only unmarried President of the United States, James Buchanan. He seems to have been a combination of Lost Love Bachelor (his engagement to a wealthy woman when he was younger got broken off and she died soon afterwards), {{Commitment|Issues}}phobic (his dithering was a habit not only in his personal life, but was a huge part of his presidency, contributing to the outbreak of UsefulNotes/TheAmericanCivilWar) and possibly {{Asexuality}} or ArmoredClosetGay (there's compelling evidence for both possibilities).

* In FalloutNewVegas, the perk that identifies male characters as homosexual is named "Confirmed Bachelor", thus giving the player the opportunity to invoke type 2.

* Literature/SherlockHolmes is one of these in-canon because he finds romantic attachments to be a useless distraction. It doesn't keep FanFic writers from shipping him with Irene Adler, their own original character, or Watson.

* ''Literature/TheWheelOfTIme'': Very few Aes Sedai (female magic-users) marry, many being MarriedToTheJob and some of the rest [[LesYay informally pairing up with each other]] in [[SituationalSexuality the largely women-only]] [[MageTower White Tower]]. The fact that they'd be very likely to [[MayflyDecemberRomance outlive any prospective husband]] doesn't help. The few exceptions are mostly of the Green (Battle) Ajah, who often marry their Warders in a LadyAndKnight BattleCouple arrangement. {{Defied}} by their male counterparts the Asha'man. Those who are already married when they're recruited are allowed to quarter with their families at the Black Tower and those who aren't married are encouraged to do so if they find a willing partner, on the theory that they'll fight harder if they have someone to fight for rather than locking themselves away in an [[VisualPun ivory tower]] as the Aes Sedai do.
