Do you believe there are consequences for missing developmental milestones?

I am 28, and I missed out on a lot of social-developmental milestones during my youth that I feel haunts me till this day.

I just awoke a few minutes ago from a dream where I was in my old middle school and I was all grown up. Everything had changed, like my old band director was gone and her classroom was abandoned. I woke up feeling very sad. It was a dream about growing up and everything changing over time.

All my former friends today are married with kids. I am the last one to be unmarried and childless. Even worse, I still never had a real girlfriend.

My biggest regret in life is not experiencing love and romantic acceptance/validation from the opposite sex in my youth. I missed out on young romance for the most part. During high school, I hardly had any friends. The ones I did have I didn't hang out too much outside school. It was a shock the one time I went out with my friend's group of friends, because I never had an actual group of friends I hung out with until that one time.
