Do you have hobbies you are really good at? Find social events, clubs, shows, or any gatherings where you can show off and share your passion for your hobby. I'll just name one example but there are infinite. If you like remote controlled flying model planes, you can find events where RC plane hobbyist can hang out and fly their planes together.
If you are not into hobbies, you must have at least one interest that you enjoy. Meet other people that share your interest. Suppose you like civil war history? You can visit civil war sites or be part of re-enactments.
You get the idea. When you are into something you like - you will also be liked.
