I am bitter at them as they don't have to go through the hassle that intelligent people go through eg analysing everything and thinking about every damn philosophical question under the sun that can drive a person crazy / insane. They just get to go about their daily lives thinking of their relationship, clothes, reality shows etc etc it just makes me angry how some of us are born to suffer due to our intelligence.

As an intelligent person with an active, analytical brain as well as you are... I can honestly say that is a VERY important personal skill to learn to "switch off" the analysis of things sometimes.
There is a reason why people who are more intelligent and worldly-thinking, are more depressed and less happy, that people who don't identify the same way as us.
It is important to *GASP* enjoy the small, vapid things in life.
Stuff as little as enjoying casual TV shows on a superficial level, such as cooking shows and kids' shows.
Enjoying drinking a Bud Margarita although we know it is a high fructose corn syrup elixir, and isn't even flavored with real fruit!
Enjoy the simple stimulating things in life like a prefume or cologne that smells good, how cute a puppy is, how cute a pair of sunglasses look on you, a lipstick shade you feel would look good on you, or an attractive man or woman that passes your path. ;-)
Enjoying the simple things in life, in my opinion, is the key to TRUE, REAL happiness. Us intellectuals can learn from the more everyday, vapid members of society. They are doing something right!1

I find pretentious people far more annoying...
I don't care if someone is necessarily smart or dumb. I care if they're kind and if they're trying their best.
Besides, dumb friends can be a lot of fun to mess with haha4
