What to do when you realise that you don't have friends?

What to do when you realise that you dont have friends?
I've always been the quiet one.
I'm quieter than a lot of classmates by nature and that's okay cuz that's me after all.
...
Or at least that's what I like to tell myself...

When I moved, the things just got worse, I just couldn't socialise.
I've been lying to myself till now as if everything's okay, but even teachers say for me to socialise more with my classmates.

The only friend I had is far away from me and we're just drifting away more and more..
I'm used to sit alone there and stay like that, just studying or on my phone.
I literally have no friends there.
Guess that's cuz I don't have charisma.

Sometimes I receive some random messages but it's always someone trying to hit me up or asking for pics...
Never genuine.

I just don't know what to do anymore.
Sometimes I even try to be more open and talk to them but I'm not really their 'mate', so of course they wouldn't want to keep talking to me. I'm not even funny so that's not fun.

My parents and teacher say to me to build up more confidence and try socialising more but it's easier said than done.

I'm too used by being on my own, I don't even know anymore how to strike a conversation.
I'm an only child, so that just adds up for the list cuz I've always been around adults and older people than me...

I'm a little concerned about how will I continue from now on with my studies and future career if my social skills are this poor. They say it's important to network, tho I'm just a lost case.

I'm starting not to care anymore, comforming myself that I'm like this and that's it.

I just can't even find the will nor energy to try to change it. I know that's not right but can't help it.
