You have to give it a bit of time. This is a forum, and folks wander through here when they get a chance. It's not a live-action chat room. Check back again tomorrow and see who has been around.
I would suggest that on arrival you go to AVF and look into organisations such as On va sortir (your local Mairie should be able to give you a list of other associations, but these two organise various activities and provide good opportunities to make friends, both with English speakers and non-English speakers, plus On va sortir is great for participating in social activities.
