Thats because you are new and no one has an idea about your true ability.
Once you get past the 20 completed games and your rating settles you will find game much easier.
Click on the Open Invites and stick up a few games looking for players rated at 1400 + or the ability you want to play. You'll soon get the opponents you want.
