I'm social awkward, extremely shy and quiet, I'm 16 and nealy at the end of my year of collage doing carpentry (thats English collage not American) and I have meet no new girls because I'm whole intire class is full of guys and no girls they are no clubs at the collage and there are not social areas. I don't really talk to my old firends from secondly school a lot because they have either moved away or started to hang around with people I don't get on with. I don't get invited to party's a lot as you could properly guess, I've only been to one and that was one of my close mates and didn't really speak to anyone. Even if I did meet a girl I would have no clue want to talk about I remember one of mates said that him and his girlfriend were speaking for a mouth before they were boyfirend and girlfirend I struggle to come up with something to text mates about who I have known for years not alone some I've just met.

Well I can tell you that at this rate, you won't get a girlfriend. You have to change things about yourself.
Is your education located in a building with other studies? You can always try to talk to a girl from another study.
But first you have to get rid of your socially awkwardness etc. You won't only be able to talk to girls then but also feel liberated because you can talk to anybody without fear.
Remember that shyness and socially awkwardness isn't you. It's just a version of you.
But you can only change yourself. Try to get out of your comfortzone with little baby steps.2

I've went through the comments, and some say something along the lines of don't be socially awkward, extremely shy, and quiet - not helpful. And some comments say that you can't change - also not helpful. People's personalities aren't fixed for life; there is some flexibility. So here are some suggestions (in no particular order):
--ask yourself if you really want a girlfriend
--ask yourself how much you think you can change
--it may also help to become comfortable with who you are. How can you be comfortable around others if you're not comfortable in your own skin?
--look up some books by Dale Carnegie and Leil Lowndes, they may be helpful
--try online dating, speed dating, blind dates
--get used to the process of interacting with girls and don't be too attached to the outcome (i. e. getting a girlfriend) because if you interact well then getting a girlfriend will occur naturally
--as for coming up with conversation, it would help to read/watch the news to stay in touch with what's happening as these can be good conversation starters. Some other good points of conversation are: location (ex: where she's from), family, work, hobbies/activities, and travel. Some topics to initially avoid: sex, politics, and religion.
--you're still 16 - you have a lot of time to change and it's too early to worry much about getting a girlfriend.
