I'm about 24.5 years old now, and am graduated after 6 years of engineering school.
I feel like much of the dating experience I should have had hasn't come about, and I feel like time is running out. About half my friends are married now, and a lot of them have children.
I never dated in High School and I never had sex in college, now I am worried I am going to be stuck where I am - both in location and in life - because everyone else will be married, and I don't have the relationship experience. If you didn't experiment with sex in High School, have long-term relationships in college, then meet your future wife before graduating, you're basically locked out.
I also feel like I have missed out on a part of life that I can't get back. Part that was completely normal, casual, and basically served on a dish for literally everyone else. I feel like after college, there is basically no place that girls would actually WANT to be met. That dating from this point on will be essentially impossible.
Is there anyone here who has done much dating after college? Is it basically the end of dating life altogether?

This isn't true at all. You definetly still have time. You just need to find activities you enjoy and go often to those places and have the courage to talk to people. Your quitting before even trying cause you think your gonna fail. That makes less sense then quitting because you failed. The vast majority of my friends that got married right out of college weren't actually in love. And as I get further and further away from college I see it more and more. Like you they were scared of dating outside the playpen called college. So they latched on to whatever they could get there hands on to stay comfortable and avoid the impending loneliness. Once you leave college it gets more difficult yes but it also gets more real. Don't count yourself out.1
