Negging is an act of emotional manipulation whereby a person makes a deliberate backhanded compliment or otherwise flirtatious remark to another person to undermine their confidence and increase their need of the manipulator's approval. The term was coined and prescribed by pickup artists. Wikipedia

I don't condone hitting people, but you certainly deserved a negative reaction. (A more appropriate response on her part would be telling you to GFY and walking out the door.) What the fuck were you thinking? I sure hope this woman tells all of your mutual friends what an ass you are.
