Make sure you share with her your cautious appreciation of how good the world can be, rather than a sense thast nobody can be trusted.
Though a close and exclusive relationship with a child can be very satisfying to both of you, especially at this formative stage, it can lead to the situation you describe, when she considers other people unnecessary and doesn't BOTHER to interact with them.
This-morning's conversation was so revealing, wasn't it ? YOu mustn't look pretty, so you don't get a boyfriend.
You need some long peaceful chats with her about her feelings, whether she fears being abandoned. Explain how infinite love is, so that even if you came to love someone else as a BF, it wouldn't result in you loving her any the more - instead, it'd just find someone else who would also love her.
The regression towards more infantile behaviour such as asking to be carried, suggests something is bothering her more specifically about her losing your attention - and she remembers when she had to be caried she got more physical attention, and wants to re-capture that.
