So the more lone pairs you have, the more tight the molecule it is?

As simple as The lone pairs are localized on the central atom. The lone pairs electrons in a molecule occupy more space as compared to the bonding pairs of electrons. This results in greater repulsion b/w lone pairs of electrons as compared to lone pair-bond pair and bond pair-bond pair repulsion.

not sure what you mean by this question. lone pairs take up more space than regular bonds and are found on the central atom.
