How can I get a date when I'm shy and an introvert?

I've never been in a real relationship and haven't even had my first kiss yet. At this point, I do feel ready to start dating (and tbh, a bit like a loser/weirdo) but I have 2 major problems:
1. I'm really shy. Most people lose interest in me quickly because I'm scared to open my mouth at first but when I lose my shyness, I'm louder and bolder than you'd think, which scares guys off/annoys them.
2. As an introvert, I really enjoy being home. In my entire life, I went clubbing 3 times, occasionally, I'll go to a party but apart from university and some friends I've known for years, my social life doesn't exist. This wouldn't be a problem in general if I didn't want to meet potential dating partners.

I've already tried online dating but I didn't like it at all. Do you have any ideas on how to find someone?
