I need to learn how to meet women

I need to learn how to meet women. Six months ago my girlfriend and I broke up. Before I met her (she was a fan of some writing I did and pursued me), I was completely isolated. I literally never interacted with anyone beyond getting change at the grocery store. I've gotten a bit better, but being alone again I am finding it very difficult.

I work at home. I don't know anyone where I live. I am in a foreign country for a few weeks, and don't know anyone here either. I have gone out a few times. Started a few conversations, which was terrifying. But every day I don't talk to anyone crushes me just a little bit more.
I have some friends. All far away now. But I miss feeling a human connection so much.
I have looked for other people asking similar questions, and people will say things like "you need to be happy with yourself first" or "you can't want it too much." But I'm almost 30 and I want kids, and there is no way there from here. I need some better answer than a blowhard who has been part of a social circle their whole life telling me I should want it less.
