I have only a hand full of friends, a small social circle, so the chance of me getting introduced to someone is quite small. I dont have any female friends either. I've been told I should try meeting girls through my hobbies, the problem is there are few girls who share the same hobbies as me. I absolutely hate parties, clubs and loud music so I won't be meeting any girls in that kind of environment. I've also been told that school is a decent place to meet girls but that isn't much of an option as I study engineering, and pretty much 99% of my project groups end up being entire male.
So the only two options I have at my disposal are online dating and cold approaches. I am very sceptical to online dating as I have a hard time believing there's quality to be found. I dont why see a very desirable person would resort to online dating. That leaves me with cold approaches, I've read some comments here that lead me to believe girls despise being approached by strangers.
I think you should try online dating. A lot of women are in the same boat as you: little to no opportunities to meet someone in person. I know, sometimes dating online can be a sesspool of people looking for one night stands or what have you. But there's always the chance that something good can come from it, otherwise it wouldn't be growing in popularity how it has over the years. Someone out there has to be making a connection, right? I say go for it, and if it sucks, then it's back to the drawing board.
You can go to chill out bars, they don't have loud music, so it's a great place to meet women, and well, new people in general. You can expand your social circle there. Look online for new events happening in your town, and go to them, even if you're not very convinced it can be fun, go, at least you'll get the experience, and maybe you'll even like it.
- Try a new hobby which do has girls like dancing or hoseback riding (as a girl who rides horses for 13 years, I really recommend this one) - Go to events like festivals (festivals don't have to be with loud music etc. You can just chill on the grass and talk to people) or some kind of special nights of things you interest in (comic cons or something) - try online dating, although the stereotype is that it's for the desperate, but you never know. You can also try tinder. You'll be surprised how many girls are also interested in just coffee on tinder. - if you are a bit charismatic, cold approaches aren't that bad. Just pick the right person and the right spot. At the beach or swimming pool? Good idea! In the bus when she's wearing headphones? Nooohh. Google what are good places.

You meet girls everywhere... learn to step your game up. I've walked into a store and walked out with the cashiers number. Cold approaches are fun and exciting... sadly, i rarely call them, i just wanna prove i can do it :)
Increase your social circle. Also, did it ever occur to you that you might share hobbies A through Y with a girl but she also has a hobbie Z that you do not share but you could meet her if you join a hobbie Z group? But if you hate any kind of parties life is going to be difficult for you...
