Appropriate vs. Inappropriate
*Should the NCP say something? No point, chalk it up to immaturity.
*Should the NCP say something? No let it go. Why waste energy on someone like this, besides it's too small an issue to start something about.
Review: Inappropriate as can be. The OP is implying the NCP doesn't dine out much and that they are much more cultured and sophisticated than the NCP will ever be, and saying it in a tone as if they are educating the NCP. Additionally, there are over 8,000 restaurants in New York, so the OP is also f.o.s. Jealousy and insecurity reigning here.
BR: "Yeah, I love that restaurant too, the food is great, what did you order?"
*Should the NCP say something? It would turn into an argument no matter how the NCP says it. They can chalk up it to that and let it go, if it continues, it's doubtful the OP will get much of the NCP's company in the future, beat it.
Convo number 4:
OP: "What happened with you and Mark, why did you break up?"
NCP: "Well, it's a long story, we were really in love and happy and then he cheated on me."
OP: "Oh wow Chris and I have an amazing relationship and I couldn't imagine him ever doing something like that to me. One time, he were walking down the street and a pretty girl walked by, he looked at her and of course I asked him why he looked at that girl. He said he didn't look at her. I think he did. Do you think he did?"
