Being a nerd is noting to be ashamed of. Who made the internet? Nerds. Who made computers and tablets? Still nerds. Who made every game you played in your life and ever will? Nerds, nerds, and more nerds. I am a nerd and I'm proud to be one.
I usually just ask them politely if I could excuse myself for the conversation for a second, turn around, and breathe deeply a few times since I find that calms me down a little bit. Most of the people I interact with on a daily basis are generally pretty good about it, even the strangers, but for the occasional few that aren't okay with it I just excuse myself from the conversation completely and ask them to talk to me a bit later.
Both are still a lot better than throwing a huge fit over a few misspoken words in front of someone else, especially considering I have a fairly bad temper most of the time.
Sit back and listen to music. If that doesn't help, I take action.

"For I am a sinner in the hands of an angry God. Bloody Mary, full of vodka, blessed are you among cocktails. Pray for me now and at the hour of my death, which I hope is soon. Amen." - Sterling Archer, aka "Duchess", aka "world's most dangerous spy".
Usually I just daydream and give out, "Mhm"s and "Oh"s while they continue to talk. Once I have left them, I like to listen to Skrillex on blast to release my anger. There have been times when I snap at people and tell them how I feel but I try my best to pretend that I care when they upset me.
A boy trying to kiss you and the way you reacted is now a thing in the past then? You wouldn't react the same way over such a minor thing? Unless of course he was trying to force a kiss onto you, in which case I still disagree with almost blinding the guy, but I suppose it could be understood.
It's good you're sorting them. Being like that as an adult will not go down so well. A short life will most probably be lived.
Even if he was trying to force it onto her, stabbing him in the eye is still going way too far. Why not just kick him in the wang?
See, I have this punching Dummy in my basement called "Bob". When I get upset, I wait until I get home. Then I spend some "quality time" with Bobby Boo. See, Bob helps me get my anger out. I hit him, and yell at him, and slap him. In the end, I feel better.
Although, I don't get mad enough to do that too often. I typically stay pretty calm.

These girls in my school, always try to be badasses, I pull out my book to read it. they ask, what are you reading? (In a way that is implying that I am nerdy) So I give them a dumbed down answer, 'A book' I find it easier to just give them a simple answer, and not get angry or show any attitude, just be neutral about it.
