How can I make more friends?

I'm 16 and homeschooled and I'm not allowed to go out so much, and because of that, I've become a bit anti social. I want to have some friends like everyone else. I set my mind to meeting new people, but when I do talk to someone, I feel very awkward and can't find many things to talk about.. I make more friends on the Internet rather than in person ._. lol

Be nice to people, friendly yet don't be a push over. Play a sport or be involved in something! Remember, a true friendship is mutual, not you going all the way to get them.

That is one of the cons of being home schooled. It could be that it is awkward to you because you are not used to it. What I did was join some rec sports and meet people that way. Just keep trying and you will do great!
