They all seem close and good friends but I'm really introverted and like my alone time so I very rarely see or speak to them. I will say hi and smile if I bump into them but that's about it. If I feel like socialising, I have friends outside the flat I'll spend time with. I don't mind not being friends with them but I'm told it's weird to not be friends or try to be friends with the people I live with especially since I'm the odd one out.

Nah, I think it's normal. You're just living with them to reduce the amount of money you spend on accommodation, not to become best friends. It's fine as long as you're not rude to them, always pay rent, and keep the place tidy.
I also think that the longer you spend interacting with your flatmates, the higher the chance that you'll have a massive falling out, and living with them could become really awkward. I much prefer it if my flatmates and I don't say more than a hello if we happen to see each other, then we'll never get on each others' nerves.
