Are there any areas you're interested in that tu know other people are interested in? Sometimes if tu ask someone about themselves and their inmterests they'll start talking to tu and they'll ask tu about yourself.
I know how hard it can be to talk to new people, but tu can start with a simple "hi, how are you?" and go from there. Even if it takes a couple tries, it will slowly build your confidence and you'll get to a stage where tu can talk to people.
Just go up to people that tu think tu might have things in common with and ask them about themselves and then see where it goes from there.
I hope this helpful, and I know it can be hard but tu will get there.
Don't forget how lucky tu are to have the friend you've got. Maybe, if tu approach a person with your friend beside you, it might boost your confidence a bit as well.
And like Shepard14 said, those who are meant to be your friends will come to you.
This may sound ironic, but just be yourself....People who were MEANT to be your friends will come to you! Even if for a while tu only have one friend, they are the best kind of friend because they like tu for who tu are!
