I Need Your Opinion Internet Friend

Today I have been Emailing a Woman With Whom I Spend Time. She is trying to rope me into something involving a bunch of wimmin friends of hers and one mutual guy friend. It involves expensive food and probably foo-foo wine or somethin' I just wanted a simple camping/fishing trip for this weekend. After a bunch of questions and answers and more than a few recriminations I finally started replying to her with, "Chicken Butt!".

She later sent me this Email, "That response is annoying and stupid."

Do I double down and start sending her Emails like, The snozzberries taste like snozzberries! or, You don't even know Napoleon! or the classic, Thats what she said! and then grab my rod and reel and backpack and head out into the wild or do I put on my best lace panties and pick a nice wine cooler to sip with the other ladies? Do I dare use the tried and true (but inflammatory) I know you are- but what am I?

I am so confused. Help me Internet friends.

While not admitting defeat (and in fact, you might want to reiterate that YES, much of what you say will always be annoying and stupid), you should probably suck it up and take one for the team.

The team, in this case, being your future best interests, really.

But still, make sure she's clear on the annoying and stupid point.

Ha! Good. Thanks Katy. You continue to be a voice of reason and wisdom in the wilderness.

I'm by no means a 'go to' source for relationship advice, but - FWIW - here's my take: I'd stick with the fishing/camping weekend, but cool it with the middle-school quips.

If the relationship continues, you'll have other opportunities to be emasculated, but to capitulate at this stage probably casts the mold for what lies ahead.

BTW, she's emailing you? Where did you meet this chick, 1995?
