Questions about example sentences with, and the definition and usage of "Clinically"

The meaning of "Clinically" in various phrases and sentences

Q: O que significa clinically?
A: @1ef2edc9 OK. It looks like this is banter, so slang and/or hip or pop nuance is probably going on.

I can think of three possible meanings for "clinically single." There are probably additional possibilities that I haven't thought of.

1. Since "clinically" means based on medical standards, it has the nuance of a medical condition or a disease. So a person who is clinically single has a serious problem of always being single.

2. "mad" usually means angry, but it can mean "insane." There is a common phrase "clinically insane." So the person speaking might be making a play on words by saying "clinically single."

3. "Clinically" can have a nuance similar to "certifiably," which means proven, or definitely, or without a doubt. So I guess "clinically single" can mean certifiably single.
