I'm 27 year old female and I've only had one serious relationship (although I did date someone for a few months about 2 years ago). My last few attempts at finding someone haven't gone well (one event in particular really knocked my already low confidence) so I'm thinking of maybe not bothering for a few months because I'm concerned I might become bitter and misandrist if I don't, however at the same time I feel that I shouldn't as I'm less experienced compared to most women my age so I feel that I should "catch up" (I'm behind because I suffered with depression and didn't bother with dating at all for a few years).

It's not a competition. And when you find a guy you like and who likes you back, none of that really matters!
But I agree that you should stop 'looking' and just concentrate on having fun with no strings attached like finding a mate. Usually happens when your not expecting it so just enjoy life for a while.
It happened to me, after getting over my last ex I was just going out and having fun (not looking for a replacement/hook up like I previously was doing to numb the break-up) and guess what happened...met my current girlfriend :)
