Try online dating, surprisingly a lot more people are meeting online now and it's easier to pick your options. You also get to skip the awkward steps and if the conversation is going and there's a connection you will meet! Doesn't mean they have to be your texting buddy, but it's nice to initiate some form of communication

Broaden your hobby horizons to include activities that are with groups. Make more friends and potential mates that way.
Dating is not like being a sniper (one shot; one kill). It's like being a fishing trawler. Most requests for dates are rejected. Most first dates don't lead to a second date. Most second dates don't lead to relationships, and so on.
What are your hobbies? What are you studying?
