The other thing is, jumping alone all the time can be a self-fulfilling prophecy. People will get the idea that this is what you prefer to do, so they won't even bother to ask. So you want to fight that perception. Go out of your way to ask to be on dives, or to ask others to jump with you. Be known as someone who enjoys group dives rather than solo dives. And don't be offended if people say no. Just smile, and move on to others.
All true and good advice. It happens...if you let it.
If you are at a small DZ, it's a little more likely to be somewhat cliquish simply because there are so few jumpers there. Larger DZs, having more people, increases your odds that there will be someone there that will actively seek you out...simply because of sheer numbers if nothing else.
As JohnRich said, get out there and seek THEM out!
