Sorry to rain on your parade, but you've hit the wrong turn somewhere. Gw2 is far less sociable than wow, since the vast majority of ingame activities are either zerg or pick up fest with little to no need for communication whatsoever. There are even no raid or arena/RBG equivalent in this game, which are tha major driving factors behind wow social. However,
Your best bet would be to play a lot ov WvW and prove yourself a competent player or leader and a vocal member of the community. This includes forum activity. WvW is generally where the most dedication and cooperation is found in this game. Barring that, well, you're basically screwed. Unless you are seeking a casual dungeon running guild who tolerate bad players, then there are not many options. Maybe some fractal runner guilds, but man, do you really want to go through that mind numbing fest of boredom and borderline exploiting?
Note that I don't mean to sound condescending, there are no problems with being a bad player. Your effort is best spent on your real life. However, this does not seem to be the sort of experience the OP is looking for, though.
