First, write down a list of things that you like. Are you into sports or reading? Whatever it is you like you will find that they have forums, blogs or groups that you can join that talk about those things and have members there that you can communicate with. With the variety of groups out on the web now if you don't like one, you can find another group that you like.
Another thing that you can consider is that they have websites that are only for meeting new friends and you can connect with tons of people by viewing their profile.
If you don't mind having to communicate with a lot of people online you can look up popular social networks like Facebook or Twitter that will allow you to find new friends.
When you meet a new friend online make sure that you are really comfortable with this person before meeting them in real life. Some people never meet in real life because they don't like that idea and you shouldn't pressure anyone if they don't want to. Always get together in a public place instead of meeting someone in their home first.
It's always fun meeting someone new but just remembers, even if you have been talking with them for years online doesn't always mean that the same person in real life.
