Does the phrase "for singles to meet organically" mean "for single persons to meet naturally"?

New York Times tweeted: With television shows like “Million Dollar Matchmaker” and “Indian Matchmaking,” and a pandemic that has made it harder for singles to meet organically, matchmaking is hot again.

Yes, that's exactly what it means.

The word "organically" here means in the normal course of living one's life, e.g. to develop a relationship with someone whom you happen to run into every morning when buying a cup of coffee is organic, as opposed to meeting someone because you were setup by some third party for the express purpose of y'all developing a relationship.
