This year I left my marriage. Jumped right into a relationship with a person I consider my true "soul mate"...true love, true understanding, and the best physical intimacy. Of course, because I'm so broken I managed to jack it up and lost him. I have had the same feelings about never being able to find that same physical (or otherwise) connection with another person. I'm not ready to move on yet but I'm also not "waiting." What I decided is that if I can't be with him right now, because I'm not mentally healthy enough to be in a great relationship, then I should really spend the time focusing on myself, and making myself more independent and less "empty"...
Try approaching it as an opportunity to better yourself, as opposed to losing something or having a void to fill. I think when we figure out how to be truly happy and content with ourselves, then we're more likely to attract (and keep) our perfect partner.
Good luck! (to us both!)
