It's all right to not feel like everything is going as swimmingly as you'd love it to. This is all part of a process, and it's important to be honest about how you're feeling.

8. Check out some social events you might be interested in around the area.

Thanks to the internet, there's basically a group out there for any sort of interest or personality. Resources such as this might help get you initiated.

9. Say "yes" to lots of invites in the beginning, if you feel comfortable doing so.
