Welcome to the site - perhaps you could cast around here and see if you can find a remote GM with a space. Or depending on where you live you might be able to find someone locally or even a local game store...
Easiest way to start is to play something

Where to look? As far as a person-to-person game, your odds are probably better in an urban area. You have several options, really. Far more than we old-timers had back in the day.
1. Local game store, comic store, geek cultural center. The best would probably be wherever you'd go to buy supplies for your game - books, dice, etc. Maybe skip hanging out in the fantasy/sci-fi section of Barnes & Noble, but you get the gist. Talk to the store owner and see if they know of any groups that might be open to a new member. See if they have an email list, facebook page or a bulletin board you can post on.
2. Web resources - I've had success with Meetup.com but that is probably because I'm close to a major city. Try it, stretch your comfort zone and meet new people, but be safe too.
3. College social/interest groups - If you're in or near a college, (your profile indicates you're around that age) look for group notices on social media, club lists or bulletin boards on campus. There's bound to be at least one group where you can meet people with, if not exactly what you're looking for, at least similar interests - sci-fi, fantasy or gaming club, comic book collectors, SCA or military history enthusiasts, etc.
You're probably going to have to put some effort into it, but when you finally find the right group for you, it will have been worth it.
As far as finding a remote group here, I see you've already posted. Best of luck.
