Wow, that was a long list of symptoms of Schizoid PD. You must have done a lot of research on the subject. I was wondering do you have all or most of those symptoms? I believe I have Avoidant PD, or at least Social anxiety disorder, and I'm almost sure that my friend of many years has Schizoid PD. Avoidant PD and Schizoid PD can look similar at times, but what distinguises them is that people with Avoidant PD want to, but can't, be social and people with Schizoid PD don't desire much social interaction. Like the symtoms list says, they're self-sufficient. I'm pretty sure you see yourself as being that way?
As I mentioned I think my best friend of many years has Schizoid PD and we were able to be very close since childhood, which has now been over 30 years. The bond we have is strong and has been there for many years, so don't lose hope, because I'm pretty sure that people with Schizoid PD can form close a relationship with another person. They just have to find the right person.
My best to you sir,
I see recovery as a lifelong journey rather than a final destination, a journey, though, which can have many successes along the way.
