Mensagem:  "Bachelor" is commonly used as a noun and "single" as an adjective, though it's not a rule. Regarding to women, it can be said "bachelor girl/woman" or simply "bachelorette". "Single" is perfectly suitable for both, men and women. Anyway, at least in USA, "single" is the most used when refering to someone's civil condition. "Bachelor" also stands for things specially made or available for singles, as an adjective. Ex. "There's a bachelor appartment available in my building". The word "single" has many other meanings.
