How about expanding this thought a bit to help us reply?

Never. Why do people think they have to go to a certain building to contemplate?

If this is the context that the OP means, then it has nothing to do with a building. The Church are His people not buildings. The point is we are commanded to meet with each other. The building just happens to be the place of meeting.

It is good for Gods children to gather together in worship of Him.

Always, by definition Biblically. The church is always together, always with one another.

Do you know how?

You can go the gun hobby life alone.
You can go your spiritual life alone.
Or not.

Yes you do spirituality alone. You can not do Christianity alone.

One is never alone when they are with God. Gathering or not.

99 percent of the time I am in church on the weekend.

Side note here...

Easter weekend 2017 I started attending a church and have done so ever since.
Thanksgiving weekend 2018 I was baptized.

Now, as someone who works 6 days a week and has done so in my current occupation for over 30 years, Sundays were a day to just have down time and do nothing unless there was a special day trip planned. Like I said, unless it was a special event, you pretty much had to blast me from home on Sundays.

Now, I look forward to going to Church on Sundays and rarely ever miss. (usually only if an out of town event that happens about twice a year)

Anyways, I digress so as to the original question, all the time

Yes I church.
Hard to understand how you do communion or use your gift in the body of Christ without meeting together “as some are in the habit of doing” to quote Paul...
Meet together, geez bro. Everyone is critical of church so get over it already.

There is only one true Church Of Christ and few there be that find it.
Millions of interpretations of the Scriptures.
Christ said one faith, one baptism.
Commanded to meet together often and partake of the Sacrament, to renew our baptismal covenants “to remember him and always keep his commandments which he has given them”.
Sacrament is a cleansing process of continuous repentance and to remember Christ’s Sacrifice Of Atonement.

Answer- not as often as I’d like-Work.

Belivers are the church.

Believer all the time or none of the time?

I’m my experience, every guy I knew who went to church was going to or was hoping to meet girls. I knew a few Jesus freak girls and all I can say is pass.

I was listening to a study on line and the pastor made the point that if you're here to pick up girls there's a bar up the street for that.

On another note my own personal experience having spent years going to church I've seen non believers who've strolled in to hangout for months just to inadvertently hook up with another non believer.
It's funny because both parties thought they were getting a Christian

Even the single guys who go to church for that reason generally won’t readily admit it, they say “thatbisntvyheborimary reason I go..” I get it though, nobody wants to be alone and meeting people outside of work can be difficult if you don’t have game.

If by "church all the time" the OP means "worship all the time," I would agree. If you are a believer, you are first and foremost a minister of the gospel, and even if you spend significant time doing something (work, etc.), which may appear to have no connection with what most think of as "ministry," it is a false distinction to separate people into clergy and laity. To use a sports analogy, attending service on Sunday is like the huddle in a football game, and the rest of the time is the game.

Tim Keller likes to quote William Temple, who said "Religion is what you do with your solitude." This is very true. We all worship something; if you ever wonder what that is, look at what you spend your time, energy, and money on.

It is possible to worship in spirit and in truth at work, when you drive, when you interact with people, and so forth. Personally, I don't consistently achieve that, but on my better days that is what I am trying to achieve.
