Let your friends know you are willing to be set up on dates. Then, actually go out on them! Even if they end up being terrible dates, every date gives you more practice/confidence.
You really just have to get yourself out there. Maybe there's a trail riding club you could join. You'll have a lot of fun, and even if the club ends up being nothing but women, those women have brothers, cousins, and friends that are also single. There's also book clubs, knitting clubs, travel clubs, and various other interest groups. Try meetup.com to look for some.
Basically, get yourself out there and look for new contacts, whether they are potential boyfriends, or just new ladies to hang out with. The more contacts you get, the more times someone will think to themselves "hm... I bet my (brother/uncle/cousin/friend) would get along really great with Puddintat."
