First let people know what's on your mind.
Put all your info out there
Check out meetup.com for meetings in your geographical area that may be of interest to you. If you find them interesting, you may find others there who are like-minded.
Communicate what is on your mind...we all share common stories about our lives. Most of the time we don't know that someone else has gone through the stuff we have. :)
Make them up.
