I am trying to replace the bathroom faucet. After screwing off the nut by hand, and seeing water come out, I decided to replace the towel I had put down below, with a basin. I quickly screwed the nut back on (again by hand), and then got the basin.

That was this morning. I'm still working on that same nut now, with a pipe wrench, and I am able to turn it, but I'm not really noticing any progress. I don't know the right words for this, but I'm thinking what happened was that the nut was not placed right in the threads, and that it was lopsided (?) when I started screwing it back onto the p-trap. Looking down from the sink, I have been turning the nut counter-clockwise--and it is turning slowly--but never coming off.

OK what should I do now? I was trying to save some cash by not calling in a plumber. I realize now that this was a mistake, but if possible I'd like to work my way out of this. What would be the best way to take that nut off?

If it matters, it is the side that it connected to the rest of the house's plumbing, not the side that is connected to the sink drain. I can take a picture if that would help.
