Pesach is a notoriously family-oriented holiday, and this makes asking people to invite you to their seder even more intimidating and awkward. However, know that an overwhelming majority of the people I've ever spoken with absolutely love having guests! They're also sensitive to the fact that people, particularly students, a) may not have family, b) may not have family observing Pesach, or c) can't go home to their families. This makes them want to invite you even more! Generally, you won't have to reveal your circumstances unless you want to. Of course, nosy people will probably ask questions in that direction, but you can simply say, "I'd rather not talk about it," and that should be the end of that. It's better if you can skillfully redirect the conversation, but most people aren't that good when faced with Jewish Geography or Nosy Bubbe.
So if you don't already have your two seders planned (assuming you're in the Diaspora), check out the following resources:
- Call your Jewish friends and see what their plans are. Hopefully, you can either join their seder or piggyback onto their seder invitation. This is the ideal solution.
- Your local synagogue. Yes, just call up the shul office and say you are looking for a seder. There is almost certainly either a hospitality committee or organizer. This is the next-to-ideal solution.
- The local Jewish Federation or Jewish Community Center.
- If you're a student, the local Hillel, Jewish Student Union, or other Jewish student group will probably host a seder. And if not, they definitely should have access to hospitality in people's homes. People LOVE inviting students!

Good seder hunting! Any awkwardness is totally worth a good seder. Trust me.
