Not sure if this actually intertwines with MD or not, but would like some opinions/thoughts on it.

I have little to no desire to actually be around real people. To go out, socialize, impress, nothing. I also have no desire for any kind of emotional or physical companionship. 

I have to remind myself constantly, to the point of writing it down sometimes, that I have to keep people in mind for certain things, else I will forget about them. People are like an obligation to me.  Not only that, but I only "feel" something about five times a year, and when I do, it's always upsetting, even in what's supposed to be a happy moment, I just get overwhelmed because I don't know how to handle it. All other times I am passive to the degree that it frustrates those around me. 

This isn't because I'm too stuck in my mind, or because I feel like "the only people I need are my characters". I honestly don't feel like this and the DD's are connected. It's just something that's developed over the past six or so years. 

Was wondering if anyone else is like this, or maybe knows what it is?

"I have only one true friend. The rest who I could call friends barely know me."

Bingo.
I love spending time with my one good friend, and I have a bunch of other people who I think consider me more of a friend than I do them :S. Work aquantinces and such. I get really uncomfortable spending time (especially one on one) with people and avoid it when I can. Even family sometimes gets a bit much for me. I definitely feel overwhelmed in situations where emotional need is required, too.

I have only one true friend. The rest who I could call friends barely know me. I tend to get most of my social needs online.

I also have a social learning disorder, as well as a stutter whenever I talk to a real person. I can talk to myself flawlessly for several minutes, but can barely hold 10 seconds of straight talking without stuttering.

I think littleschrodinger'scat summed it up pretty well. :/ Maybe it's a form of social phobia?

I sort of feel the same. Sometimes I feel very lonely and really wish I had friends, but then I see people and remember how much I dislike them. If there were people who had the same personalities as my characters I would love to be around them, but they don't exist.
