Stuck in a loner rut!

I'm a 31 year old single professional who has a lot going for me. I have a good job as a licensed master social worker. I am financially stable, and I will be a first time homeowner in about a month (I'm buying a beautiful house!). I have come a long way in the past two years, despite tragedy (when my mother died two and a half years ago, I didn't think I'd be able to make it, as she was my best friend).
Now that I have those things in order, I need to figure out how to get my social/ love life going. For nearly a year, I have had a pretty non-existent social and dating life. The few friends I have here have abandoned me. My closest friend moved away a few years ago. I was dating a guy earlier this year, but broke it off because we weren't compatible. I recently (within the last few weeks) stopped communicating with a man whom I had been dating long distance, as we too were incompatible. Nearly every Friday and Saturday night is spent alone, with me going back and forth between surfing the net or watching HGTV (I'm going to be a new homeowner, so I'm obsessed!). I have NO social life. I don't know what to do. I don't want to move into a beautiful home, and become a prisoner in it, or never have people over. How does a single woman find friends? Also, I NEVER get asked out. I've been working on myself (I go to the gym regularly to stay in shape). I'm just not sure what to do. I am tired of being a loner. No one at my job would ever know this side of me. At work, I'm outgoing, friendly...on weekends, I'm like a recluse. I go to the grocery store, the gym, and church. This is ALL I do on the weekends! It is pretty sad.
Any help/ ideas are appreciated.
