Hmm, I'm not sure how to answer this, hopefully others will contribute as well.
The best bet might be to simply make a disposable character to see during the times you play, here's why I say that. GLFF is dramatically different during Euro time peak play than American time. So if you are playing another time, you might see an entirely different social scene.
I'm in one of the larger kins on the server, we have folks ranging from pre-teens to some in their 70s. Although we used to have more 30 and 40-somethings, the college age crowd tends to dominate. It's also currently summer in North America, so kids are out from school and playing a lot, that will all change in a week or two.
If you play evenings Aussy time, you'll find the population level to be about a third of what it is during peak times, judging from GLFF numbers if I log in mornings. In our kin, we have only one or two Australian players, and a couple Asian, but our kin I believe tends to have higher "daytime" numbers than most.
So generally, socially speaking, folks tend to be most active within their own kins on Firefoot, so taking your time to find the ones you want to game with is worthwhile if you come here for some reason.
