"YTA. You say you hardly know each other and you're strangers. Well? She's trying to get to know you and spend time with you. You seem genuinely surprised that she got mad at you. Well, wouldn't you? Imagine you're trying to spend time with someone and they tell you point blank that they will never hang out with you. You're one foot in, one foot out. You're okay with them in your life but will never see them in person? And you'll deny each of their requests to spend time with you? AND you're surprised that they get angry? Yeah, YTA dude. If you're going to treat them like this, cut them out entirely. No contact. Edit: by the way, the part about your husband's nut in you is trashy and uncalled for. Yeah, definitely the a**hole here dude. (Any accusation of me being homophobic will be tossed right out the window. You all know in that situation if they were straight and the wife said 'my husband's semen runs through my vagina' you would call it extremely trashy. You can go through my post history and see that I am gay myself.)"
