How do I become less of an extreme introvert/misanthrope? I've barely had any social contact in the past three years, but this is not how I want to live my life.

After college I fell completely out of touch with my group of close friends because I moved far away and our differences became more apparent. Since then I have not made a single new friend, and I've come to relish my solitude. Conversations bore me immensely, and I'm very awkward and socially unaware to boot. I actively resent being around other people. I've recently moved in with my parents and am living on my substantial savings while I half-heartedly search for a job. My only routine is going to the gym every day. What are some baby steps to make me less of a misanthrope and introvert?
