A short-term relationship just ended, and I'm okay With that. But how do I stop myself from going down the spiral of "I'm going to be alone forever"?

A promising 6-week relationship just ended because he thought I was amazing but didn't think it was a match. I understand that, had sensed there was some hesitation, and was unsure if I was getting everything I needed, so I can come to terms with this. I only want to be with someone who is super excited to be with me. I think he handled it in the best way possible given the circumstances.
But the fact remains: I'm 31 and I feel like I meet fewer and fewer single men I connect with. How do I prevent myself from going down a spiral of "single forever/never going to meet someone"? I have an active social life, a successful career, and I'm in therapy, but haven't had that much dating luck since my last relationship broke up a year and a half ago. The truth is I don't like to be single and am aching to be coupled up (with the right person). I feel like I've done everything I can and nothing has yielded the relationship I want.
