I've always been very shy socially, never making any very close friends (the kind you hang out with all the time). I never went to many parties, I've just always been kinda socially awkward, which I hate because I've always wanted to be the kind of guy that could easily meet new people/girls and have fun in social situations but I usually try to avoid them because I feel uncomfortable. This situation is even more enhanced when it came to girls, I've only ever really asked out one girl (that I genuinely liked, about 2 years ago) and I got shot down.
It's not that I'm so afraid of women I can't talk to them, I've worked with cute girls at temp-jobs and in college, I just seem to be socially inept; I can't seem to be comfortable enough in social situations to meet and talk to people/girls.
Now I've gone through college and am 27 and still have not even kissed a girl, and I feel like I'm wearing that fact as a red flag. And now I'm paranoid that girls my age are expecting a guy that has experience in relationships, sex, socializing, etc. so how do I handle all of it for the first time at such an older age than normal? I feel pathetic when I see teenagers who have had more romantic relationships than I have...

1. Would girls think it's pathetic that a 27-year-old guy hasn't had a date/kissed a girl?
Not pathetic just unusual.
If he hasn't kissed/date a girl and it's not by choice like religion or chastity standards he set he's unusual because that meant through circumstance the opportunity never came up.
I'd expect him to be socially inept, socially awkward, have few friends.
2. so how do I handle all of it for the first time at such an older age than normal?
Date 16-20 year olds they have a thing for older guys and you'd feel more comfortable since you're older than them.
