My brother's girlfriend is coming over to hang out later this week. It will be just the two of us and I'm worried about how I'm going to handle it. I'm not good in social situations and haven't really had a friend in 6-7 years. I've met her a few times, but there were always other people around so it wasn't as stressful. She seems like a nice person and I don't want her to misinterpret my social awkwardness as my not liking her. Any advice on how to handle the situation?

Ask her to teach you about socializing. Tell her your basic problem, and admire her talent.
