I am tired of Bible literal people telling me what i can and can't do. Half of it isn't even in the bible. In reality we should go off what we feel is right and wrong. Not what we are told by PEOPLE. In that light, there may be times when it is acceptable to do certain things in context...such as premarital sex.

Bible people are not telling you what you can and cannot do, God is. The topic of fornication is well covered in the Bible and if you have sexual relations outside of marriage you are sinning against God. The Bible warns mankind not to do those things which they feel are right but to do what God says is right. We are all fallen and sinful by nature, if left to our own devices we would surely die and be separated from God forever.
Your statements bring to mind some scriptures.
Proverbs 14:12 KJV
There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
Proverbs 14:16 KJV
A wise man feareth, and departeth from evil: but the fool rageth, and is confident.
Proverbs 21:2 KJV
Every way of a man is right in his own eyes: but the LORD pondereth the hearts.
2 Timothy 4:3 KJV
For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;
His statements brought to my mind completely different scriptures.
Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.
Be ye not as the horse, [or] as the mule, [which] have no understanding: whose mouth must be held in with bit and bridle, lest they come near unto thee.
