Exactly! On the bus, people don't look at each other, except for the "crazies". And, if you don't want others to think you are a crazy, then you just keep to yourself.
I think it has a LOT to do with overcrowding. In the country, when you pass by someone, they wave. I think it's because they already have their own space and so don't mind inviting others in. In the city, there are people everywhere and people need space. Ignoring others, which avoiding eye-contact achieves, may be a coping mechanism to give others a feeling of space.

I feel that people give Aspergers' syndrome much to fast. In fact, if nobody ever told you that you have Aspergers or something like that, you will probably not have it.
Be sure to google for syndromes like BDD or OCD. This are syndromes which are not easily noticed, evne for the person who suffers from them (believe, I spent 7 years of my life without knowing what the problem was).
If you really feel that it is a problem, than it probably is. I would really suggest consulting a psychiatrist, because it may be part of a bigger problem (that you are probably not even aware of).
