Odd, Pushy or Dangerous?

I had a lovely date last night with a new man who is a professional photographer for major brands. He owns his own company, is reasonably good looking (not heart-stopping!) and we have a LOT of common interests. After 2 hours together, though, he seems to already be slightly obsessive.
He texted me at least 20 times today, I answered fewer than half of them.
He invited himself to my house and when that didn't work, offered to give me my "daily massage". (I mean, we had one 30 second kiss in the parking lot, c'mon!)
When that didn't work, he invited me to his house first to watch the sunset, then for that massage, then to "relax", which seems a little alarming to me.
I think he's spent a little too much time in the dark room. I looked him up and he's won some serious awards for his images, and has quite a big reputation in his industry, which makes him appealing, of course. I like him. But I'm not playing hard to get - this kind of coming on too strong really does freak me out.
Part of me thinks I should just disappear, another part thinks I should push back and give him a strong lecture on being too invasive. But the largest part of me figures he was also a nerd or a dork growing up, like I was, and that he just has no clue socially. Very weird. Slightly scary. Definitely pushy.
What would you do?
