What disorder would these symptoms be classified as?
This is purely hypothetical i know things will differ from case to case. But if someone displayed all these traits/tendencies would they fit the classification for a mental illness or disorder, possibly a personality disorder?
-The individual has a problem forming romantic relationships and is sexually inexperienced for their age
-The individual feels the need to make others the centre of their life and often has anxieties over others not liking them and doesn't feel wanted in friendship groups they are clearly a part of
THE FOLLOWING IS THE MAIN SYMPTOM
-This individual tries to make others they are close to dependant on them, particularly in terms of household tasks such as cooking/cleaning (applies to family and close housemates throughout their life)
-The individual was bullied by someone they felt was a friend at the time all through high school which may be the cause of this behaviour
Again this is for research purposes only, as i have started planning a book. I have heard of dependant personality disorder and if anyone knows the opposite of that and if that fits these symptoms especially the third one please say.
I just realised the way i described it kinda sounds like munchausen by Proxy but this wouldn't fit for what i have planned so anything else

That sounds nothing like Munchausen's by proxy. It simply sounds like a person with low self esteem, insecurities and a controlling personality.
Obsessive compulsive personality disorder (OCPD)
Obsessive compulsive personality disorder (OCPD) is separate from obsessive
compulsive disorder (OCD), which describes a form of behaviour rather than a type of
However, similarly to OCD, OCPD involves problems with perfectionism, the need for
control, and significant difficulty being flexible in how you think about things. You may:
need to keep everything in order and under control
set unrealistically high standards for yourself and others
think yours is the best way of doing things
worry about you or others making mistakes
feel very anxious if things aren’t 'perfect'.
Personality disorder not otherwise specified (PD-NOS)
Everybody is individual and behaves in unique ways, so it is only natural to not fit
neatly into the categories described above.
If you experience a number of personality disorder traits but not enough to fully meet
the criteria of a specific type, you may receive a diagnosis of personality disorder not
otherwise specified (PD-NOS). This diagnosis may also be known as personality
disorder trait specified.
