A friend of mine, and I'm sure many of yours, had met his wife while at a church. I think religion still plays a big part in socialization, which is unfortunate -- "so you're not religious? Well, good luck trying to find a group of people that happens to have lots of single women the same age as yours!"

Poppycock. You don't need to be religious and a regular attendee at a church to have a better chance at meeting a partner. There's pubs, clubs - for the younger generation, introductions from friends, and probably the most common scenario, work colleagues.

Singing in a church is not the best idea during these covid19 times ... spreading etc.

Also religion prohibits what younger people ... want to do - so there might be better locations for them.
If you are 30+ and male then chances are high you wont find many women there .... who are not married or ... uncoupled for certain reasons (visual, social, psychological,...). Same can surely be said about men there - but you know, there are more women growing children alone than men.

@ Matty
There is no reason to stop talking to people - except they or you are ill. If you feel unsure, wear a mask and stay a bit distant from the other one - then you can talk. You could also meet in your garden etc.
We've met our friends and families as usual the last months - except when we had "lockdown", then we tried to meet "as few as possible" - except when it was allowed to meet "outside" etc.

Avoiding any social contact is ...not productive for your not too stable mental health.

Sure, and house parties too. But people that frequent churches have yet that extra moment to meet others. I think I'm only complaining about this because I'm already antisocial enough that any opportunity you can get to meet others is valuable...

and probably the most common scenario, work colleagues.
My older sister met her husband this way, so you're right on the money.

@Derron based on some girls that I knew (just friends) during teenage years, they only went to church because their parents forced them. 
One of those girls in particular seemed kinda liberal actually (as in pre-marital-sex kind of liberal, she said she had a boyfriend and he had been "her first"). The strictness of the church crowd that I've met seems to vary a lot person by person, and that's kind of confusing. In some cases they go because they're forced to, so they're not that bound by the rules as you'd think.
