There are many answers to this question. Use the in-game chat function and ask each of your opponents. If you're focused on improving your game, visit the Only Chess forum. If you're focused on human interaction, check out all the forums. Join a couple of clubs to make contact with opponents with similar interests and playing skills. That's about as far as you can go without paying for a subscription.
