Think I might have RAD?

So yeah, I'm new here but have been suffering with social problems my whole life, like not being able to form relationships well and stuff. I hate intimacy, and cannot hug certain people. I completely hate cuddling, and I just don't feel lovable in the slightest. I'm really bad at keeping friends, and I have anger problems.
