I think I got into dating too late in life. I had a couple relationships when I was younger, but nowadays I rarely date. I'm 35, so the girls my age are married, divorced, or have kids. I want to start a family some day!
I am more introverted, although I like to go out, I prefer staying in or just going out with close friends.
Since I waited so long, due to shyness and no self-esteem, and since I'm out of college, I think all the good girls are already taken.
Also I worry I've gotten too comfortable being alone and living a life without dates.
So I feel I've completely ruined my chance for happiness by hesitating.
Am I screwed? Has anyone else seen success later in life?

It's 2015, people live much older nowadays, so we have much more time. It's so common for over 40s, 50s and even 60s to find love, some even saying it's their first love.
They used to say 40 is the new 30, but the lifestyles we all have these days I'm pretty sure it's more like 50 is the new 40 or something.
You definitely have time. I agree a lot will be divorced or already have kids, but there are way too many singles without kids at your age and even older for you to be thinking it's too late.
But, if you keep on the way you are going, and not making any effort at all to date women, you'll stay in the same situation. The right woman isn't going to break into your house, you need to go out and get her.
Just get comfortable with smiling at pretty women, making small talk at the supermarket or bus stop, things like that. Get out your comfort zone, build it up slowly, but not too slowly, and you'll meet somebody.0
