ya they bug. They think they're better than you because they've done something and you haven't. Take those who have lost their virginity for example. Some people see that as some kind of a prize and they look down upon virgins as losers. It's really pisses me off!

No, because their smugness has nothing to do with me.

You do realize it is more like a guy to say he finally "lost" his (proclaimed with pride in most cases)virginity. Not to mention that it is more likely that a guy is picked on by other guys for still being a virgin (High school juvenile behavior) and a girl is almost never? Especially a 19 year old girl as you claim to be.

It's those little stumbles that make people suspect.

As long as they aren't smug towards me, people have the free will to act like clowns

No, they are usually obvious and look like fools.

When interacting with them, a bit, but otherwise not really.

don't get me started--'smug', immediately a picture of Sean Hannity pops into my head---and others, many others.

Hypocrites really bother me. I don't have statistical data available but I'd say in the US--we are down to fewer than 10% of decent/ordinary people of any kind--political affiliations make little difference, jmo.

'Special'---'I am Special--insert any reason you like'

very early in my life I encountered such a person--at the time I really thought she was 'Better Than Me'--'You should, you should not have, I would never, I always'---what a surprise to meet her again after knowing some more authentic people--they weren't that impressed with her--those that were impressed with her seemed to share her attitude--what can be said. If you can talk yourself up, people will believe what you say and you will become a 'Leader'.

Accountability--it seems that many in the US are no longer satisfied with that sort of person.

Maybe that's the only way they can get recognition for what they've done....doesn't really bother me, it's their life, though I do prefer to be more humble myself.
