I'm a pretty quiet guy and I can go to parties and events every so often but I often get uncomfortable after a while and unless I know a few people it can be awkward, especially because I'm also introverted (although somewhat extroverted in very small groups). I'd rather be somewhere calm/inviting/less intimidating. I'm not necessarily shy or nervous around any friends, other guys, or most girls but I can imagine my heart will be beating away relentlessly the first time I try to ask a girl out (Yep, I'm really inexperienced, too. :) ) Coffee shops seem like a decent place to start, but I'm struggling to think of other good places where I won't feel overwhelmed. Any help? Thanks!
For those wondering, I'm actually 2 years younger than it says I am, so I'll be a freshman this fall. Hopefully that doesn't make me seem really creepy! ;)

The library! Just don't bug the ones who seem like they're busy cramming for a test, haha.
The most likely place, though, will be in your classes. If your college courses are not just "lectures" but also have a "discussion" section attached to them, those are also good opportunities to talk in class and get to know classmates. Classes that require group activities -- like labs, speech classes, etc. -- are the best opportunities, from my experience.
And of course, your friends will likely introduce you to female friends of theirs during the course of college. Happens all the time. xD0
