Try talking to some of the members and see if some of them actually open up to you. I work for a German company and have been over there on many business trips. The Germans come off as being cold, but they really aren't. One of my colleagues in Munich opened up so much once she found out I was a runner. We had that bond. We are no longer work colleagues but still stay in touch via e-mail and talk about running all the time. Give it a chance. Or you could try to find another club, but my guess is that someone has to make the first move and break the ice. Good luck.
