I'm not really picky but a lot of women my age are all looking casual flings and hookups, which I dont believe in
You definitely aren't picky then.
During school I had a lot of self esteem problems due to my weight and looks, in college I started getting better but my anxiety got worseAt the end of university when I was 22 my anxiety got very severe and I was on antidepressants So I never started dating till I was 23 , which at that point I thought I was too late
Are you DEAD YET? Then it's not too late. Those reasons are quite personal. Perhaps it will take you time to get to know someone. Just say you haven't done much dating. This is true. Take it slowly and look for someone who's kind and who you might be able to reveal your issues to LATER when appropriate. I'd keep quiet about any revelations during casual dating. It's never too late... But relax.
I just hope there are decent women out there who will understand why I'm inexperienced
Remember. You do NOT owe them any explanation except, you haven't dated much. You are clearly shy, too. You have a host of reasons for being so. That is none of anyone's business during casual dating. Talk about what you ARE experienced in. There is so much other stuff to talk about. GO THERE>
Would people see it as shameful if I haven't had a lot of relationship experience
Shameful? Something's shameful if it's the result of you doing something bad. Your LACK of experience is nothing bad. It's the result of multiple factors that you've addressed and continue to work through. You should be proud of your making progress.
I hope so , just a little anxious that woman may see it as a bad thing socially
