Questions

A good team with a good execution vastly outweigh any good business ideas. However, I cannot seem to find a similarly driven person from my colleagues, ex-colleagues, Uni alumni or family members. They may not necessarily reject the idea, but they are not a good fit as they are content with their current lifestyle and career. I am aware of the common suggestions like networking events, incubator programs, etc. But getting a cofounder on board is like a 'marriage'. To engage someone whom I do not know well, sounds counter-intuitive. What are your thoughts on continuing to find a co-founder, or simply focus on the business? To provide more context, I am a single-person bootstrapped startup with paid freelancers only.

Hi,
Based on the intellectual way you worded your question, it seems like you already know the answer :-)
Although a team is important, it isn't everything, and if you prove that your venture is doing well/has potential (traction, profits, conversion etc...), you shouldn't have any problems.

Co-founders are like romantic relationship - keep looking (without it being an issue), eventually you'll find the right one.
To improve your chances, try focus on forums/meetups and the various other platforms which focus specifically on your field and/or the startup lifestyle, as this will increase the chances of success.
I've successfully helped over 300 entrepreneurs and would be happy to help you if you need any assistance.
Good luck
