Good places to start would be in clubs/groups where you have a similar interest. Sports, hobbies etc. Also, it might be easier for you to apply the term acquaintance instead of friend. For me friend has a far deeper meaning than what appears to be most peoples terms.
Heck you could even try okcupid, it is also built as a matchmaker site for friends and activity partners...
Either way, good luck in your journey
