I'm 29 and haven't had sex. How can I reconcile with the fact that it might not ever happen for me?

I'm 29 and I've never had sex.
This fact has been weighing on me lately. I feel like everyone around me is having sex and is able to find people to be intimate with except for myself.
So far, I've had two girlfriends. Both were somewhat religious, and did not believe in sex before marriage. I cared about them, and so I respected their wishes. Still, I always wondered what it would be like.
I'm trying to wrap my head around the fact that perhaps I'm not meant to ever have sex with another.
So I ask you, has sex been worth it to those who have had it? If you're still a virgin, how are you able to cope with these feelings? Any help would be appreciated.
