Is this guy being overly enthusiastic?

A guy sends a FB friend request after after meeting you for the first time at a meetup group, AND promises to FB msg to ask if you're coming to a second event of that meetup group. Being pushy or what?

I was at an event of a social meetup group (not a singles one, or anything like that, purely social). One of the guys asked me for my Facebook afterwards (this was the first time we've met). Feeling pressured in the heat of the moment, I gave it to him. Now the friend request is sitting in my inbox.
I might not have minded so much accepting this (I have asked for people's FB before if it's the first time and I feel it's potentially the last time as well). Except that this meetup group has another event this coming Sunday, and he said he'd inbox me this week to ask if I was going.
Yes I am paranoid, and please correct me if I'm wrong, but a) isn't that moving too fast, and b) could it be potentially romantic rather than platonic interest? [because if it's the former, I DO NOT WANT THAT - I have seen too many codependent romantic relationships around me (including my parents) and I'm still in the "me, me, me" part of my twenties]
