I think overcoming social anxiety involves a certain amount of "homework." I understand it's difficult to meet new people in person due to the pandemic, but there are things that you can do on your own that will help you make friends when it's over. Stuff like learning a foreign language, watching/reading the most important movies/books of all time, reading forums or the news... All of these make you a more interesting person to talk to. If you find the right crowd, they'll be able to overlook any weirdness in your behavior if you know a lot about your hobbies and know what's happening in the world. I spent the better part of my twenties practically friendless, but I still learnt languages and posted on small political forums, where a lot of the users also happened to have pretty good taste in movies and music, so they introduced me to things I never would have found otherwise. It's all about being curious and open to new things outside your comfort zone and taking your hobbies one step further.
