I was very shy too and didn't have a lot of friends. But somehow I became more comfortable as the years went by and I have a few suggestions.

First of all, smile! Smiling makes you more approachable so people think that you're a nice fun person to be around with and are more likely to open up to you. It also makes you feel better about yourself which is important when you're meeting new people. We like to be surrounded by happy people!

Also, try to get involved in your school. Is there any clubs or sports that you're interested in participating? Join them! If there's not, then volunteer!! That's an excellent way to meet people who have the same interests. A way to get involved is by researching online for volunteer opportunities or through word of mouth. 

A lot of people like to talk about themselves so another way to make friends is to ask questions. It shows them that you are interested on who they are and then you can also learn about who they are as well. 

Keep in mind that not everyone is approachable or interested in making friends so if you get a cold shoulder every once in a while, don't let it get to you.

People are social creatures. They love to make friends and I'm sure anyone would love to be your friend. :)
