I am 24 and i have not even experienced half the things 24 year olds experienced in life... i have , never had a boyfriend, good friends, sex (i never tried it) , and i feel like a huge loser for living at home. I am behind everyone in life. I feel sad, i missed out on so much in life. How can i not get depressed?

Stop thinking about what you don't have, which is depressing you. And think about your right now (hopefully there is something good about what you can do right now) and some hope for the future.
What's happening is your brain is producing chemicals which make you feel miserable. It does that because of the things you are thinking and to a degree who you are receiving/perceiving the world. Change how you think, and you will get the good chemicals that feel good. Read the book "Mind as Healer, Mind as Slayer"... that is where I started to learn this because I was doing the same thing you are. People get "hooked", that is trapped on artificial chemicals (e. g. drugs) becuase they cannot figure this out. Those drugs though cause other problems and they are not worth it when your own brain will make everything you want and need, just needs unlocked. That's where the Bible comes in... love is what we need and want to give.
All you have is time... time to learn how and to love. By spending time thinking about things you don't have, you are wasting the time you have. That will turn into regret, which is another negative thing.
Take control today, make it better than yesterday... one step at a time.
So... think about this... its sunny outside, correct? Go out and experience it... just something simple, warmth of the sun, touch a tree or flower... experience it fully. Joy will be revealed!

Girl you are in your prime years and there's nothing wrong with being a virgin at 24. Take your time and let it all fall onto your lap. Honestly I'd rather to have not experienced good friends than to have gone through a dozen of shit friends just to find the good ones 😂 I lost my virginity at 16. I regret who I lost it to so be mindful of who you give it to. A virginity is a precious and sacred thing so only the best of the well deserving should be honored to take it. It's also not hard to get a boyfriend I mean good guys are everywhere. Unless you're picky. In order to experience these things you have to be willing to put yourself out there. Don't be a caged bird. Join a yoga class, go to a hair salon... whatever. I meet people any where I go. Just be sociable. And living at home isn't all that bad. My friend said you should have your things together by 25 at the most. You're still fine and even if you surpass 25 and still at home... Fuck whom ever is concerned about where you stay.. it's your choice. Girl don't be depressed. If you need a friend... I'm here 😁😊! I don't have that many friends 😂0
