Looking for a partner or group! (Rust)

I’m really new to this game and bought it yesterday, I am looking for a partner in crime of sorts except we won’t be killing newbies (so no real crime) but I am looking for a patient person to help me play Rust I am an active player and use Eastern Standard Time in the USA so a server based around there would work but probably not a stress test server with lag. Please reply I really need another player or group of players that can help me get my bearings. The furthest I have gotten is a shack looking for stones and animals to build a furnace, I have a hard time finding resources! Any help on starting or offers to join would be appreciated!
