Very little is being done to help single adults find each other thru the church, especially if you are over 30. there are 3 devotionals for young single adults in 2017 but when asked what the church is doing for the adult singles there is silence. Firesides focus on things that are gospel related but not address the plight of singleness or offer a solution. it is like the church doesn't know what to do with so the subject is avoided.
If your stake has a single adult representative, I would suggest you start there. If not, one of the counselors in your stake presidency is responsible for single adults. He will be able to direct you to other resources.
Then I would become involved with the activities of the multi-stake coordinating council where you live. Most of them have effective communication channels to keep single adults aware of planned activities.
Our stake has regular firesides and activities, and other stakes (but not all) do the same. Stakes in the coordinating councils in our area host two regional single adult conferences each year. These activities and conferences are the places where you will meet and associate with other single adults.
Personally, I do not believe the Church will set up a dating site. It is far too risky, in my opinion. So the next best place to meet other single adults is through regularly planned Church activities. In places where the Church is strong, there will be many. In places where there are not as many Church members, you will have to travel to meet other single adults who are members of the Church.
I am in the latter category. I know from personal experience that it is not easy.
