Reaching out/Giving up

I wouldn't say that I'm a terribly social person, in fact I can be classified as a kinda "shy" person. Despite that, outside my country I'm always classified as a social person. Here in Norway the same thing happened, for some reason I'm again classified as a social person, not only that but I'm classified as a very social person.
However everything has its limitations. I can say that I've been trying to reach out people, but so far I could say that I have reach two and I've half reached three more. Which is not bad if you consider what I said in the previous paragraph, but anyways the problem is that people here sometimes simply ignore me. I would prefer somebody telling me "Please stay away from me" than simply ignoring me. Or to say it correctly, politely smiling and avoiding me.
Is it so difficult to be honest and say: "stay away from me"? or is it that difficult to be nice to somebody? The thing that gets me the most is the fact that if I reach people they are very nice to me, but the moment I stop reaching they do not react. Maybe is Scandinavia, maybe it's me but definitively I do not get it. I mean, wouldn't be easier to just be the same all the time? if you are not interested in me trying to establish contact, please say it so. If you are, please try to show some interest, because it is hard to understand what is going on.
But as somebody already told me about Scandinavia: "it is difficult to distinguish between a rock and a person", I didn't believe it at first, but I'm starting to believe it now. Please people from Scandinavia, be a little more "emotional" and try to express your anger, happiness, interest or lack of interest because for somebody like me that is used to be able to understand people based on reactions... I still cannot differentiate people from rocks!
