Go join a club or interest group so you can practice socializing because learning to talk to other humans takes practice. Get a book on body language because in my experience many autistic people lack the instinctual ability to read body language.

Being shy isn't a deal breaker but you have to learn to use your nonverbal skills to signal to other people that you want to be included and are happy to be engaged. You are autistic so you probably struggle with this but other humans can usually tell from your face if you are lonely and want to be talked to. Humans have a lot of hardwired facial expressions.

Socialize with as many different types of people as you can. Don't look to talk to X type of person looking to have Y emotion reciprocated. Humans are quirky as hell and some people will rub you the wrong way with their personality and that is okay. Other people that seem like they would be your arch nemesis will fit in your life like a sibling. Just talk to anyone that is patient enough to listen.

When you are well versed in talking to normal humans, then you can give crazy lady humans a try.

A rookie fisherman doesn't ask a fish how to catch it.
He should ask a successful fisherman.
