Hmmmm.... well, since it's a first date, and you are just getting to know this guy, and if you like him, then OK... I would allow this, but just once. Only once. He might be doing this because he's stupid. But, stupid people can be worthwhile too. Maybe. We'll see.
Next time, he has to pick you up, or you meet halfway. If he does this a second time, tell him you're not doing it, and make sure he understands why. If he's an OK guy then he might say "oh, I should have realized, it's only fair that I come to you this time..." Again, we'll see.
