Drinking too much?

My BFF met up with a guy (he's a friend of co-worker) yesterday afternoon at 5 at a chain restaurant in a mall. He had a beer she had a soda. The date was going well.
They decided to move and continue the date to a nearby (15 min) farm to table restaurant as they are both foodies.
He ordered 2 craft beers with dinner and she had 1 glass of wine. After dinner he ordered a scotch, neat.
It was a little after 7:3o when they headed home (not together).

Date went great but she is worried he drinks a lot.

My DH doesnt drink at all. So is 3 beers and a scotch a lot of 2.5 hrs?

Maybe he was nervous. I would go out with him one or two more times to see.

By the way they are both around 40 if that matters for the story, which it may.

That's not a red flag in my book. DH easily drinks that much when he's "out." Never been a problem.

Also He is a big guy. 6,1 broad sholders not fat but my friend said about 200-210.
She is 5'10 so, tall guys are hard to find.
Good suggestion.

Not really for a night out. Sounds like he enjoys the taste.... Not knocking back some Bud Lites for the buzz.

That is a lot considering it was within 2.5 hours.  Hopefully he wasn't driving afterwards.

First dates often create nervousness and anxiety for people. That can account for the drinking. I would be concerned about his safety and the safety of others if he was behind the wheel after having four or five drinks in a few hours.

He shouldn't be with such a judgemental person. Hopefully she mentions it to him so he knows how she is.
