You can make friend's here! You could also join a club or a team if you like sports. Another good idea is doing volunteer work. I find that you meet some of the nicest people doing volunteer work Hope I have been of help.

Just be more socially active. Start saying Hi in school. That simple word can open up friendships. Then just add on to the convo next time you see that person. I would also recommend maybe doing volunteer things outside and inside of school, maybe join a club that isn't always considered cool but still you like.

There are alot of possibilities - but you just have to be more open.

I hope you know that you deserve it all. The best, the most honest, the most beautiful purest love in the world. Not only to be loved by others, but to be loved by yourself. To look in the mirror and think "Yes, I'm exactly who I want to be". To speak up and be proud of yourself. To be brave and open. You deserve the nicest and most caring people to walk into your life. You deserve it all, you know. The whole world...

There are a ton of ways to meet new people, even if you're a shy person. Sometimes, you just have to take that big step and introduce yourself to someone. There must be something at school that you're interested in. If not, there must be something within your community that catches your eye - i.e., sports team, book club at the library, etc. There are so many resources available to young people to aid in their socialization and networking needs. Take advantage of these resources. You're at the prime age to do so.

If you do group work at school make some small talk whilst working so that you can start making new friends.
Join clubs at school. I know that my school runs a magazine club for people who like writing, a drama club if you like drama, that sort of thing. If there's nothing you really like, perhaps go to one anyway, one that sounds interesting.
Outside of school there are lots of clubs. Things like Scouts are fun to join, and you don't have to be religious to go. Some areas have a youth group just to hang out in.
Does your family have any friends with children your age? Or do you have any family, like cousins or siblings, who could introduce you to some people?
Sometimes, we just have to open our mouths and talk to people, regardless of how scary it seems. It gets easier the more you do it!

I know some options have already been suggested but my suggestions would be maybe learning a new sport/joining a team in the community, volunteer work, getting a job (some places will hire at 15, and it's a great way to meet new people depending on the position), community center youth nights/drop in's, etc.

Like the posters before me have said, to meet new people you may need to push yourself out of your comfort zone a bit. And hey, be open to trying something new! You may find a club/sport that you actually really enjoy, that you wouldn't have even considered trying before. Anyways, hope this helped!

Take care. :]

Try joining sports clubs, or other clubs which may suit your interest, you will for sure meet people there! You might also want to join a group lesson where an instructor teaches a group of people, whether that be skiing, snowboarding, skating, a language, or whatever, try joining one; At 15, you might become very good at it!

As people said above, try volunteering, making small talks and introducing yourself. Sometimes, a friendly approach and a "Hi" is what anyone needs!

Dude, I'll bet there's dozens of people at your school, and in your community that love cars and play Skyrim. AND everything everybody above said...
