Our expert says:
What you're descibing sounds uncomfortable, but not necessarily schizoid --- could be, for instance, a social anxioety disorder, which responds really well with treatment --- which would result, not in your automatically becoming the life and soul of every party, but in having the choice of whether to socialize or not, and the freedom to enjoy it when you chose to do so.
See a good local shrink for a full assessment and a discussion of ntreatment options. Whether medication might help or not, would be one topic to discuss, and I'd expect that counselling, especially of the CBT format, would help a lot, including helping you to make a wise decision about this relationship, which should be based on more self-knowledge than is currently accessable to you.
